It is a good TV


Price is good, which I got it with $370 screen is good,color is balanced

only one HDMI port is definitely not enough! I must plug and unplug frequently to connect my laptop/wii U/PS3

Consumer review by:

Solid TV


Great picture quality for the price range. Slick design that takes up minimal space

Only one HDMI input. On Newegg it is advertised as having two HDMI inputs, but it only has one. This makes it very inconvenient if you want to use more than one HD device. There are AV input (actually kind of hard to find now) if you want to use those

For a secondary tv (ie bedroom etc) this LG was a great LG.LED with very good picture quality and a better price than off brands in the same class. If it were a primary TV such as for use with all the bluray and game console hook ups it...

size & pic quality for the price esp as compared to everything else in the 40-46" range

limited inputs
