Great TV, LOUD remote

 

I will be on the hunt for an alternate remote that still has the appropriate Smart TV buttons and NO hard plastic LOUD obnoxious navigational buttons.

Absolutely stunning image, and the different modes (Game, Sport, Cinematic, etc) are easy to access and change. Easy to understand/program. Access to Hulu, Netflix, YouTube, more. Overall, I love this television

This TV has, by far, the LOUDEST remote control I have ever used. Forget about surfing Netflix or anything else late at night and not waking up your partner with a SUPER audible "click" every time you use the navigational buttons. All of the other...

Great TV

 

I bought this TV for the bedroom. Best decision I ever made, aside from marrying the love of my life. I would recommend this TV to anyone.

Simple hook-up, Easy connectivity, Fast Wi-Fi connection

Great TV! Not a Computer monitor.

 

I gave this 5 eggs because its a great TV that I had my hopes up on as a low input lag PC monitor. It works better than some but still has very noticeable ghosting. If you've been using a TV as your computer monitor and want something better, give this...

As a TV its the best I've ever owned. The design, picture, contrast etc.. its a joy to watch a BD on. Im not much for fake refresh (MCI) and dont use it.. I have tried it and its just like all the other brands. Creates a Soap opera effect and is...

I bought this to see how the input lag would be with PC. Its better than some but still nowhere near even a cheapo Computer Monitor. Sure, its 39" for around $400 but dont get your hopes up. I read the review above me and decided to drive to a local...

Great tv and monitor

 

For tv, I've watched a few Netflix movies, streaming worked very well with no buffering, all movies tuned in at HD which looked great. The sound is okay, it's a tv so one shouldn't expect booming bass or room filling positional audio. Lastly, LG does a...

I contacted LG to confirm the LB5800 series uses an IPS panel with full array LED backlighting. I was looking for a good gaming monitor; so far this tv does not disappoint. It's sits on the desk nicely, no wasted real estate thanks to the sleek bezel...

remote a little clumsy/old style. LG has an egglike remote that could have been included

All Around Great Buy

 

Really like the picture quality of this TV. Set up was easy, but I did not connect to Wifi, instead connecting directly to my router. Love the features, the sound, the look and the price! The only downside is the poorly designed remote. It works, but...

6 Months Now And STILL Can't Use The Smart Feature

 

Honestly, I am so frustrated now! I had bought this smart tv for Christmas and as of today, I am still unable to fully use the smart features. First, let me sy that I live and purchased my smart tv in the Caribbean, however when I tried to go to the...

it turns on, it still works, connect a laptop to make it a true smart tv

LOVE MY TV!!!!

 

Overall I love my smart tv, great picture, good sound. I havent owned it that long, so im still learning how to use its features. One thing im not really happy about is not knowing how to connect the internet to it. I couldve sworn it has a internet...

Easy and Excellent

 

We wanted a bigger television and it had been a while since we purchased one. We had a heavy, state-of-the-current-art LCD television that weighed a ton and wasn't as clear as we wanted. We also had a space problem, so this is the largest TV we can...
