Summary: This is our second LG. We have been so pleased with our first one we bought the exact same TV for another home. Clear picture, great controls and we are used to Chrome browser from our computers so its easy to navigate.

Summary: I did my research and when buying a new TV I wanted one that I thought would have good support, and a good ecosystem of applications for it. For that reason I wanted a Google TV (to be re-branded Android TV). The thought process was it would be open, and using the normal app store, there should be a very large collection of apps for it. Also I wanted my smarts, of the smart TV built in so that I only needed one remote.
Summary: Great TV Bought one last year and wanted another for a different house and wanted one that I was semi used to the controls. Works great, great picture. Great control and I love flexibility of Google Chrome!
Summary: The picture is okay. The apps are meh. The best thing about it is the Magic Remote. (that I really like...wish it was backlit though) If you're looking for something compatible with galaxy S4 apps, get a Samsung. If I had to do it all over again, I would buy a Samsung.
Summary: I bought this to "cut cords" and cancelled my tv service. I hooked up a MOHU Sky and used the built in tuner to find the channels ... that program right there was worth it since it scans in the background to find channels, and only bothers displaying ones that are coming in. I love how it integrates those tv channels with the homescreen. It supports so many apps to get media from. I use Vimu, Plex for movies and shows that I store on my media server.
Summary: I love this TV!! The picture is the best of all of our flat screens over the years so far. I love the interface, which I wasn't sure about at first. You have to update the TV'S software to get the best guide, etc. The remote is nice with all its features, but not having a back light does make it challenging at times. I'm anticipating that with more updates & software designed for the TV it will be even better in the future.
