Summary: After a year and a half of owning this TV, I am pleased that it does just about everything I want it to do. The main feature I use is hooking a portable hdd with movies to the USB slot to watch movies. This TV has some lag issues that are annoying, no updates either to fix them.
LG and Google made TV intelligent (not only smart)
Leo10, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
20 February 2014
Summary: The integration of Google OS to a TV make a lot of sense: Have a Smart guide that shows you the programs based on your cable provider is now at home a requirement for next TVs when we need new ones! This is superb! Being able to use you Google account and what your owned movies from Play is perfect! Control it from your android device. Some applications recognize your TV like as Chromecast!
Summary: My new LG HD3d TV has a beautiful picture, very clear. Most of my apps are cool, only problem is my Netflix app. Netflix has an audio problem causing a clicking noise. I contacted the 30 day tech assistance and was told it is probably my Netflix but I don't think so because I have no problems when I go to Netflix through my WII. Other than that, I'm having a little trouble getting the remote set for multiple controls instead of using a bunch of different remotes.
Summary: So what they don't tell you about the google tv is that the app has to be configured for Google TV. Want Hulu? Forget it. Want to surf the internet? Some websites have players that are not coded for Google TV. Eventually this may be a great product if apps/players buy into this. I ended up buying a blu-ray player with the apps installed that I was missing. Now it is a complete tv. The picture quality is great. Sound is horrific.
Summary: The LG 42GA6400 is a mixture of solid performance and underdeveloped promise. At the time of this review (May 2013), the 42GA6400 is a 4-star television. I put that disclaimer up front because I firmly believe that some thoughtful software fixes could definitely bump this TV up to 5-stars. HARDWARE I'll start with the physical specifications of the television first.
Summary: I've had this television for about 2 weeks now and I don't really know what to think about it. The reason I purchase this instead of the regular Smart TV plus 3D was because it had a built in web browser "Google Chrome". I don't have television service, so I mainly stick with Netflix, Hulu and web streaming. During initial setup, I notice it being slow and very glichy.
Summary: The only reason I rate it 4 star is because there is no way I can rate is 4.8, and there is always a room for improvement. To me it is 4.8 out of 5. I purchased this TV after I had issue with LG LA6900, which has issue with wireless internet connection. Let me highlight the Pros and the Cons on this TV.
Summary: I recently got the 55" LG GA6400. Thanks to in store price matching at Fry's, I was able to get it for the exact same price as it is on Amazon (currently $1029). For non tech-savvy users, the biggest downside will be the sound quality. As others have mentioned this TV does not produce great sound. Most audio coming out sounds "echoey". A soundbar is definitely suggested. But let's remember, TV manufacturers are becoming obsessed with making thinner and thinner TVs.
