Summary: After a little over 2 years a message started flashing in the middle of the screen saying, "This function not available now." The tv would also not turn off unless it was unplugged and it could not detect the remote at all. Thankfully I purchased a Square Trade warranty and they sent a part and repair service and it couldn't be fixed. They took the TV and tried to get another part but it was not available so I no longer have the TV.
Summary: To keep it simple, here are my finding. I would have returned this TV if i had evaluated all these features within 30 days. Hope this helps someone. Pros: 1. Matt finish screen Cons: 1. If you are watching Cable TV, picture keeps resizing as commercials are different size. Toshiba 55" led, and even 50" plasma hitachi works great and always shows full screen. 2. Zoom would not resize picture proportionately. it would make people look fat. 3.
Summary: purchased from Lincoln on Amazon; most of the features on the set are fine, but the optical digital audio only works some of the time, depending on the program material. LGs answer is they do not guarantee their equipment to work with non LG products and if i want the audio output to work i need to buy an LG audio system. since there is no analog audio output this makes the set unusable for me, since my wife needs a audio drive for her hearing aid loop.
Pros: the network connection for Netflix is great, most features are fine and reasonably easy to find and use
Cons: the optical digital output only works with some program material. LG service tells me I have to be feeding an LG audio system for this to work reliably. I think this is a poor replacement for analog jacks.
Summary: I buy a lot of stuff from Amazon but rarely write reviews. That being said, this TV was so disappointing that I felt obligated to steer potential buyers clear of it. I probably spent 60 hours or more reading reviews, studying TVs in the store, comparing prices, etc. If your reading this, you're probably not so different. In that case, don't make the mistake of buying this television.
