worked well for 2 months

Christopher S., Newegg
11 April 2012
  • Summary: I was told by several people to stay away from LG but I thought I would get one the "good" TV's. Save your money and get that samsung you've been looking at.
  • Pros: Lots of features at a good price. Great picture. Thin pannel.
  • Cons: TV is fairly slow to respond when web browsing, file sharing , etc. The integrated speakers are a joke. It came with a secondary remote that workes like a wii controller but not nearly as well. Also I have a line of dead pixles going across my screen now and it occasionally makes an electrical ar...

2nd TV received.....

Kevin A., Newegg
2 November 2011
  • Pros: The first TV that I received that worked had a great picture and was easy to setup, and the optical sound and HDMI port worked great.
  • Cons: This was an RMA TV, and it came so damaged that the picture was not right, and it only worked on half the TV. It looks like something sharp gets punched through the box and hits the edge of the TV, just like my first one. Not sure where it is happening, but I am not the first one on this site to ...

Not Worth The Money

K. Courtney, Amazon
29 October 2011
  • Summary: I selected this "smart" television over similar and cheaper models based primarily on its integrated web browser. All smart television manufacturers have a suite of apps, some better than others but an included web browser is fairly unique and I was hoping for the ability to stream video from sites...

Power issues are the main one. Secondary are outdated apps

LB, Amazon

  • Summary: First off I have to say that this tv has a really amazing picture. It is crystal clear(when it works). I love this tv because of that alone. I hate the though because it is fussy. Since we got it, it has had a few issues turning on and staying on. It will randomly just turn off.

Nice TV for 2 weeks

Ryan D., Newegg
28 September 2011
  • Summary: RMA'd to NewEgg I guess we'll see how the second one goes
  • Pros: The TV had a beautiful picture and was easy to setup. NewEgg RMA process was not difficult
  • Cons: Worked extremely well and then had issues after 2 weeks where on the left side of the screen there was a magenta bar that could be most easily seen with brown colors on the screen

Started out well but ended up returning....

Debbieh, Amazon
26 September 2011
  • Summary: Received LG TV from Amazon with no issues in regards to packaging nor delivery date. Peripheral connections instructions were not documented well but did figure out. Picture was great, sound was just okay through TV (as we use separate speakers,not an issue).

Smart tv?? I don't think so

Jay T, Amazon
21 June 2011
  • Summary: Purchased this TV based on the list of features and reviews I read. The picture quality is very good, however, this is not a real smart TV. First, you cannot log in to your youtube account using the youtube app.

Great picture quality, ugly smart TV interface, broken DLNA support

Ryan Henderson, Amazon
21 April 2011
  • Summary: Great: The picture quality is amazing. The viewing angle exceeds the size of the living room. Some people complained about seeing gray squares from the back light sections, but I couldn't really tell. Sound quality from the TV is better than expected.

Não cumpre muito do que promete.

  • Summary: Já que não vou poder usar o gravador para meus filmes e a internet é muuuuito lenta, além de ter poucos apps bons, poderia ter comprado o modelo mais simples, sem o Smart tv, seria bem mais barato. Pelo menos a tv é boa em termos de imagem e som.
  • Pros: Imagem e som muito bons. Atendimento bom do SAC, para tirar dúvidas (e acredite que surgem muitas). O controle Magic Motion realmente ajuda um pouco (eu esperava mais dele), mas é supercaro.
  • Cons: Não grava da tv a cabo, só coisas via UHF (esqueça o Time Machine!!). Internet tem acesso suuuperlento e muita coisa não abre. Poucos aplicativos interessantes (banco, só o Banco do Brasil), só tem um monte de jogos e coisas infantis. Esqueça o adaptador wi-fi, acho que eles não o tem desde janei...
