Summary: Bought this TV in 2013 and have really enjoyed it up until a couple of days ago. All of a sudden the TV began to restart itself every couple of minutes and would sometimes get stuck on the LG logo at startup. After reading online, I found that this is kind of a common problem.
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).
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.
Died on Superbowl Sunday...3 weeks later and it is still not fixed!!!

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.
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.
Summary: After doing many hours of review on LED tv's from spec sheets and expert reviews I ended up with this tv. The PROS: Beautiful looking set, easy to set up, super thin, got it for $1369, a considerably good price versus the competing brands I was looking at.
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.
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.
Summary: On 47lm8600 , I am having shadowing/ghosting issue .. on 2 TV's(I replaced first one).. It starts when I put video in vivid mode, then in standard mode also .. Cinema mode and game mode work fine.. do anyone else hav similar issue?
