  • Summary: This product is a great product and is one of the few which are rated for both North American and International use. 110V and 220V. The Smart TV store was not so well populated but has been gaining lot of new apps.

great picture, disappointing internet

  • Summary: At this price, the picture is outstanding. The internet features on the other hand are disappointing. I have not been able to find Pandora (if it even exists on the set), YouTube is awkward to use and starts up with content I'd prefer not to see, it's lacking up to date Flash so some web sites I'd like to watch don't work, and the bundled non-pay apps are not top of the line.

Got what I was expecting

  • Summary: I was deciding between this TV and the Samsung LEDs. Both looked good to me. The Samsung picture looked a little better to me but it cost more and the reviews were less favorable than the LG. I think the picture is very good. There are lots of color adjusts so I should be able to get the picture set to my preferences. Not really crazy about the energy saving feature, it basically turns down the LED lights when the room gets darker, but it can be disabled.

Great TV, Poor Smart Technology

Sam, Amazon
7 December 2011
  • Summary: I will keep this short because I hate reading long reviews myself. Pros - Outstanding picture quality - very easy setup - modern & easy to use remote with few buttons (5!!) - aesthetically pleasing - super thin! 1.2 inches - Bang for buck Cons - Smart technology is awful, it will not replace a computer or Roku - I still have my computer connected to the tv through an HDMI cord - The interfaces for their apps (facebook, youtube, etc) are absolutely awful.

I Like It

  • Summary: This is my first LED/LCD TV and my first HD TV. PROs: DLNA MagicWand Remote Wireless USB Donge Frequent firmware updates Simplink connectivity with my LG BD player. CONs: Clock - Auto setting doesnt seem to do anything; clock has to be manually set. Also, everytime the firmware updates, the clock gets reset to --:--. Edge lit - I didnt realize until I got this TV that the glow from the edge lighting (during dark scenes) would bug me.

Good TV, Easy to use.

  • Summary: Being my first HDTV that I owned, I exstensively review many brands, options and price. This TV offered the best bang for the buck that I found. The picture is very bright and sharp, however movies and filmed television shows have the appearance of a TV Soap Opera. More like a video tape than film. I've investigated many people's suggestions and played around with the settings myself. I did get it to improve but not quite there.

TV good, Smart TV less so

victrav, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
23 September 2011
  • Summary: Picture & sound are great. Even in a well-lit room. Smart TV, a feature I bought this TV for. is not yet ready for prime time. It is awkward and doesn't do everything one would expect. The system also comes with Two remotes. One more to lose, as far as I am concerned, and I couldn't even get my cable box recognized, so neither provided remote is of much use, except to access the Smart TV which is not as good as it could be.

Excellent item for the price ( turns me off some times though!)

  • Summary: I had searched several stores and online stores, and devoured every review available with open mind and settled with this product. It has been about a month since I got this TV. It has got wonderful pic and sound quality, but I am not here to spit out its countless strong sides, rather to mention the incidences that turns me off when I want to surf and enjoy online shows or clips: 1.
