Summary: There are three serious flaws in what is otherwise a decent TV: 1) It has recently been revealed that LG has been using spyware installed on their smart sets to gather info from EVERY COMPUTER in the network they are connected to(see endgadet for details). 2) The TV has a lot of light bleed around the corners and edges and cannot produce a dark black well. 3) The lighted LG logo on the bezel cannot be turned off when the set is in use!!
Summary: Thought it was a good product but turn off the firmware updates as LG will remove options from the TV from when you bought it. Also had the main board has been replaced 4 -5 times in December 2012. The TV was never the same.
Summary: TV broke within 5 months of receiving from Amazon. Called LG who sent out a tech within 3 days. Tech indicated it needed a new main board and that was on back order for 10 days. Looking at these other reviews on Amazon I see a definite pattern of failure here. My best case is this TV will remain broken for at least 3 weeks...best case! LG customer care can't give me any specifics on when the the part will become available and when they can actually install it.
Summary: It's April and I purchased the TV on June 2012. Must of the time, we only watch the TV on weekends since I work all day and I do not have regular cable TV, I am a Netflix Hulu subscriber and I get movies through Blockbuster by mail, so you can clearly said that the TV has less than average usage. The Problem, I am watching the TV and goes completely black.
Died on Superbowl Sunday...3 weeks later and it is still not fixed!!!
JOHN POLIMENI, Amazon
20 February 2013
Summary: Purchased in May of 2012. On Super Bowl Sunday the TV starting making a humming noise and stopped working. Only picture is the “LG Life is Good” screen, Called that Sunday. Told a repairman would be at my house on Tuesday. On Monday the repairman called and said he was ordering the part (sight unseen). Part is “unavailable”. Had to wait 10 business days, still no part. Now, three weeks later, still no working TV.
Summary: Enjoyed my new tv for a total of two days before it shut off and would not turn on. Contacted Amazon and they are picking my paper weight for a full refund. Lots of features on this tv, but you need it to work for more than two days.
Summary: Returning product, bought it used from Amazon warehouse and the picture in the lower right is not showing. What I can see looks great though...shoulda paid the extra$$$ and bought new. We shall see how the whole pickup/return goes.
Summary: I briefly owned an LG 47LM8600 that, out of the box, had a dead Wi-Fi. Web research showed that a number of folks had this same problem and a change of the main board was needed to fix the problem. So ... poor engineering of the product. I called the Canadian LG support line twice and both times (after having to go through their diagnostic procedure) was told that in-house service had been scheduled and that I'd receive a call to set up a time. I never received a call.
Summary: Update 10/07/2012: I used the online service request form more than a week ago and have not heard from LG in regards to setting up a service appointment. Why have the option on their site if they are not going to respond. I am on my second set after returning the 1st. The first had huge flashlight and ghosting issues. I returned it and hoped that the second set would be better. I receive the second set and this one has the exact same issue.
Summary: This replaced an older Samsung 720P LCD - the old TV was far superior! This was a significant downgrade - I was warned but did not listen and bought into the hype. Clouds and trails follow anything that moves. A surprisingly poor picture. And this is after I had put the picture on maximum brightness, no energy savings, vivid picture setting. This sill be returned for sure and I will go with a more reliable Sony or Samsung.
