Excerpt: Set up was easy. Not many features since it's not a smart tv.
TV is thin and lightweight. Only two HDMI ports but three would have been nice. Sound quality is ok, not amazing. If you like booming sound with movies or music you may want to get a soundbar.
Summary: For the first 4 months, this product worked well. One day, around the 5-month mark, it mysteriously would not turn on. No abuse or overuse. It just decided not to turn on. Under warranty, LG (eventually) sent a contractor out to fix the problem. Cool. 5 months later it broke again!
Excerpt: Had my 55 in Tv shipped because it wouldn't fit into my car. I received it Thurs. Aug 20 went to put it together Friday night and the screen was cracked on the right hand side it looked like it was damaged from the company cause the box was fine.
Summary: Terrible design. Just so we are all clear, I am that stubborn kind of husband who will buy new furniture to fit the horrible stand design this TV has rather than admit I was wrong and that it really does need at least 50" of straight and open space to stand up.
Summary: I ordered this based on the reviews and was worried about some of the 1 star reviews, when I turned on the tv there was a huge crack on the screen, I had a sad feeling when I opened the item and the styrofoam was already cracked.
Downside for Chromecast users & those without soundbars
30 September 2014
Summary: The Good: - The new look is stylish - Great price for the large size screens - Picture quality is on par with Vizio/Sharp The Bad: - No Smart TV functionality (not a big deal if you use Chromecast) - However, if you use Chromecast, the LG TV's version of CEC (Simplink) will not auto switch Inputs...
Summary: I'm not sure where these 5 Star reviews are coming from as they sound pretty fake. First TV arrived with three regions of stuck pixels (stuck at blue and red, green seemed dead). Amazon was helpful and sent a replacement but that one arrived with a pretty visible dead pixel.
Summary: I am developing carpal tunnel from all my clicking on these phony one and two word reviews (all 5 stars) who have never reviewed any other product. Its obviously done to inflate the average rating. Please help by rating this one star to discourage this manipulation.
this screen has extremely poor uniformity and obvious screen banding issues

Summary: As others have mentioned, this screen has extremely poor uniformity and obvious screen banding issues. The picture itself looks great, no question. However, once I turned off the lights to watch a movie, I noticed a giant white spot dead center in the display.
