Consumer review (newegg.com)

Speakers dying.

 

Apparently if you ever want to RMA your TV you need to save the original box. I never knew this. The box this comes in is roughly equal in size to a double bed.

Picture is decent.

2 months and 3 days after purchase the speakers are going out. There is apparently no way to plug in external speakers. The thing I thought was the Audio-Out port says "SVC Only." At the rate the speakers are going out I'll have an overpriced monitor...

A sweet monitor!!

 

Versatile, clear, and stylish.

Attracts dust! But what doesn't?

Know what you are buying, LG doesn't

 

I suspect this model is really meant for the hotel/hospitality market because all it lacks any way to output sound besides its speakers, not even Audio Return Channel (ARC) on either HDMI. I bought an LG soundplate as part of this gift for my mother...

Good screen size and holiday price.

Very limited connectivity

Got a dead pixel after one month of light use

 

I had high hopes for the TV and bought it for its brand despite better deals on less known brands. I got a dead pixel in the center of the screen which is very noticeable in a dark scene.

Nice design & good price

Limited input options (2x HDMI)

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Very disappointed

 

There are lots of comparably priced sets are out there WITH audio outputs. Get one of those.

Decent picture; lightweight; thin profile

No audio output. You are stuck with the rather tinny sound from the tiny speakers (to fit into the thin profile). Don't be fooled by the "port" on the back that is disguised as an optical audio port... it is not. It is a fake port that looks like an...

Great TV for a Great Price

 

I think this is a great buy. It may not be as good as much higher tv's but its still a great buy. I got this tv for our bed room, so it did not need to be the greatest quality. But I was impressed by the picture. I had a 32 inch tv in there to begin...

Sound is not the greatest, but I didn't expect it to be great.

awesome upgrade from an old 32"

 

great black friday deal, and Newegg delivers another superb product. would buy again!

very light, awesome picture, very sleek looking

built in speakers leave a lot to be desired, if you have all of the options on like dynamic contrast and everything it seems image burn in chance is very higg

Consumer review (newegg.com)

u get what u pay for

 

Very light, easy to set up...picture ok

Minimal inputs and outputs, no optical for sound bar...speakers very tinny no separation...this is a $150-$200 set at best

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Price/performance is great

 

The transformer for AC-DC conversion is an external box like a laptop, I am not sure if this is a thing for LED tvs or just LG.

The TV picture is great. 8$/year estimated operating cost, if you have a tube TV in 2 years you could probably see a return.

The speakers on the TV have a limited sound stage and the equalizer adjustment is only two channel. Also if you change between inputs, you may have to mess with with the zoom in 16:9 mode as the tv is set to default cut off the outer half inch...
