Summary: I purchased this particular TV from TigerDirect.com as it was on sale for 999.99. I decided to review here since I am a big Amazon shopper and usually come here to read reviews on products I buy here and elsewhere. After 2 1/2 months the TV suddenly flashed 3 times where colors faded in and out, then picture went black with a little edge lit light. Turned off the TV only turn it back on and have the same results a half dozen times.
Summary: So I have had this TV less than a year and the screen has gone out twice already. Then after the second repair now black lines appear through the screen. Still under one year and now 3 issues. Horrible. Poor product and I will never recommend an LG TV again.
Summary: This was a great TV until it broke.....and LG refused to honor the warranty in a timely manner (if at all). This TV broke (the picture went completely black) approximately three months after I purchased it. I contacted LG to report the problem and inquired about getting it either repaired or replaced per their warranty.
Summary: Bought TV in August. Had a great picture and good features. 3 months later, it suddenly died. Luckily I had the extended warranty so it was replaced with another brand new one in the box. Same great picture. 3 months later, it suddenly died. I have another LG (32in) in the bedroom. It is a couple of years old and works great. Stay away from this model.
Summary: As a tv, this tv is fine. HOWEVER..... Do not purchase if you plan to use it for its internet features. It does not support Hulu basic, Amazon or any other web based coverage that is not part of thier "Premium App" service, which is basically Netflix and HuluPlus. Furthermore, it will not stream from my computer or xBox as my old "dumb" tv would. Therefore, I can't get to any of these services AT ALL anymore.
Buyer Beware poor quality and lousy customer service from LG

Summary: My TV broke within 98 days of buying it. The picture went out (the sound works) and when I called for service the provider told me he knew exactly what it was - the time code board and that there was 46 of these parts on backorder - sounds like a known issue. While I was on the phone with him, he called LG to see if they could give him a eta for the part and they could not tell him when the parts would be available.
Great image, but had display problems within the first month

Summary: I bough two of these 60-inch beauties and within the first month and on the same day, both monitors quit powering up. Neither unit would make a picture, nor display the "LG Life's Good" startup screen. LG responded quickly and a technician came out and repaired both of the units within a couple days. The images are spectacular, since they rely on LCD panels made by Sharp. These are beautiful monitors with great features. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase more of them.
What kind of 'Smart' TV does not play Amazon movies?

Summary: I do not have cable, and bought it just for Netflix and Amazon. I assumed a so called 'Smart' TV would support Amazon video on demand. Not by LG's definition of 'Smart'. I just got off a chat session with LG and they say they do not include or offer the Amazon VOD on their TV's. Ridiculous. The Vizio was $400 cheaper and had both Netflix and Amazon. Am seriously considering returning the beast... Picture is nice and so is the 'phaser' remote control, though.
Summary: This TV as as bright and clear a picture as any TV I've seen. I watch a lot of day-light TV and have a very bright room. This is the reason I bought an LED which I had heard performs the best under these conditions. And it does. I am extremly happy with this TV and the sound is great as well. No need to buy a sound Bar. Hooked up to the WiFi easy. I got a 3 year warranty with LG for $80. Cant be happier.
Summary: Bought this set from another big warehouse but wanted to make those who shop for LG IPS panels be aware that this is not an IPS panel. Why? Off-axis viewing is terrible, strong contrast loss at 35 degrees and color shift grey to pinkish at 40+ degrees. Exactly like Sharp panels do. I own 55 LG LCD and 55 Panasonic LED LCD, both with IPS panels and show to constrast loss or color shift even at 60+ degrees, this TV is not the case. Just keep this mind.
