Nice clear picture

 

For the money this is a nice TV.

Clear picture, VERY light weight, apps are just about best in the business. Has all of the connections that I was looking for and setup was a breeze. One good thing about LG is their apps and software are better than most. Just downloaded all of the...

Reboot issue Fixed with fan

 

I have a different model than this one here but the had the same restarting loop happening. After the fan installed it stopped. Been at least 7 months now-- no problem.

Reboots from chip inside not having enough ventilation ; I installed a USB powered fan over the chip which on my model as right inside the cabinet and above the RCA jacks. Drilled a pattern of small holes to vent the fan air pulling the heat outward....

Newegg and LG make this a great buy

 

If anyone says the picture does not look great they do not know how to turn off the eco settings on this TV. Which will make the picture dark if in low lighting settings. I suggest turning this off if you have an issue with the picture being too dark....

Great Picture, Great Price, overall great value. I wanted a smart TV with great picture for under $600, that's exactly what I got

I have to give it Con's in order to be honest with potential buyers/shoppers. the cord to plug in the TV is not very long, but if they plug/power strip is within a couple feet it should be fine

LG 42LN5700

 

DLNA Software is the pits. Went Universal Media Server, better but not great. LG DLNA software and folder structure is awful. 40 years in the programming business and I would certainly would not pay for it. It works but there is no structure to it....

Very Good Picture, DLNA connection to my Media Server

Magic Remote and DLNA Software, super lousy
