This entry-level LG is simple and straightforward, but its picture quality is not getting any praise.

Take it from a gamer...


Good TV for the price - you're paying for the hardware specs and not the erroneous features.

Comes with all of the features you'd expect in a top of the line TV but without the bells and whistles. 120hz refresh rate is awesome for watching movies but you won't notice it while gaming unless you have a video card that can render that many...

Not a deal breaker: only two HDMI inputs... This is fine for me because I am only using a single input: My computer

this product has great features.


My TV is exactly what I wanted, the picture is crystal clear, set up was the easiest thing I have done and I love the 55 inch screen. I really appreciate the e-mails from LG giving tips for best viewing.

If you are looking for a good tv for a good value with a nice size, this could be the one. If you want the newest features, like Smart or 3D, then keep looking.

Great Picture Quality & Sound


The 60"LN5400 LG TV is an excellent purchase. The TV has great sound and the picture quality is very sharp. The TV is very durable. It has MCI 240 and the 120hz makes the images look very smooth. Great TV for watching sports. The audio has an option...
