    Very good TV

    I bought an LG in 2013 on Black Friday and it went out on me within 8 months. Thankfully, I had The Geeksquad Protection and was able to exchange it for a Samsung. Well, that Samsung Went out after 2 years and I bought this on sale this year. Originally, I bought a 4K Westinghouse and ended up taking it back and exchanged it for this. I can't tell you how much LG has stepped up their game in 4 years since I've had one. Pros: 1) The picture quality is incredible. We have Direct TV and watch Blu-Rays mostly. Obviously, there is a quality difference, but that's from the Sattelite connection and the native 1080p of the Blu-Rays. 2) Menu set up is incredibly easy to figure out. The User interface is easy to understand, and even easier to navigate. 3) The remote is small and everything is clearly labeled. Cons: 1) The only con I have on this TV, if you can even call it that, is where the remote sensor is located on the TV. It's in the middle below the screen itself; it's almost hidden. We have a sound-bar and the sound-bar is blocking where the remote sensor is. However, this is more an issue with MY setup, not the design of the TV. My Samsung had the receiver on the right hand side so I was able to change inputs and such without having to get up. Now I've run all my HDMI's through my sound-bar so the only time I have to get up is if I'm turning the TV on or off, which isn't that bad. 2) This TV only has two HDMI inputs. Make sure if you have more than two HDMI devices that one of those devices allows pass through. Currently, I have my Direct TV Box, Blu Ray Player, and my IPhone connected through my Sound-Bar, all via HDMI connection. If I didn't have that, I'd be having to manually plug and unplug HDMI cords everytime I wanted to switch something. Overall, the few cons aren't a big deal to me, but possibly could be a deal breaker for someone else. I happen to love this TV and believe it's worth the price.

    Price tag is low but it is not cheap

    Bought this TV because its price. Also it provides better display quality than other cheap brands, i.e. Westinghouse, Insignia, Hisense and Vizio. Set it up in my garage and expected to connect my VCR, DVD and game consoles. There are only two HDMI, one USB and one component inputs. It doesn't work with my VCR and Wii because there is no RCA input. Had to purchase a RCA to HDMI converter. The only audio output is an optical output. I can't even connect the TV to my receiver, it only works with receiver with optical input. This TV is built for low end customers but doesn't provide low end connections. LG apps are suck. It has less apps comparing with Samsung and Sony. I wanted to add Sling, HBO, Showtimes, ESPN to this LG TV, LG app store doesn't offer these apps. The only favorite apps are Netflix and Amazon TV. Bottom line, very few app come available to this TV. I think the LG developer expects users to use an Android device and the ChromeCast streaming to this LG TV. If this is the case, why did I purchase the LG "Smart" TV. I am keeping this TV it is because it has been over 15 days of the purchase, no more return. Also, I purchased couple converters for my gears connecting to this TV. Just don't want the hustle repacking and taking it back to Bestbuy. If you are considering this TV, spend a little more money for the Samsung or Sony. If you want this TV is because the price, go for Vizio, Insignia or Hisense.

    Great if you don't use the "smart" features

    nope

    I had a 32" samsung smart tv that stopped working and was looking for an upgrade to a bigger tv. I didn't want to spend too much money and when I went to the store, they showed me more expensive Samsung models and this LG, which was a decent price. In the store, I informed the associate what apps I use regularly to ensure that they were available on the tvs he was showing me. He told me that this TV had all of the apps I was looking for. He was wrong. I was disappointed to find out that the Pandora app is not available on this TV and then I realized that HBO GO is also not available, even in the store. I mostly use Netflix, so I can accept that these other apps aren't available since I can stream from my computer. However, the Netflix app does not work properly most of the time and it takes forever to stream. I know it's not my internet connection because I did not have a problem on my old TV. This was my first LG purchase and it will be my last. If I had known, I would have spent less money on a smart TV and just bought a regular TV with some sort of streaming stick.

    I replaced a Sony Bravia that stopped working. It was a good TV but this one is Hands Down Better. The Smart Function is fast, easy, and works nicely. I have it direct connected to the Modem Router via a Networking cable. There are lots of options you can adjust for Picture and EQ etc for Sound. The picture is fabulous, clear, very sharp, nice colors and the sound is really nice for built in speakers. Some complain about the remote but I find it to be nice, very functional and easy to use. I do have to use my reading glasses but no big deal, I have to use them on anything close. So easy to go from regular TV (cable, whatever) to Netflix and Amazon Prime as there are dedicated buttons for them. It is also easy to go to the main smart menu and return back to TV (cable etc.) by pressing the exit button. Whoever heard of being able to select the TV information by pressing and holding the Mute button for a second, or accessing the main TV adjustment options menu by holding the Mute button until you see as swirling pattern on the screen then in a couple seconds it brings up the TV Adjustment options menu. So far I have had this TV for a little over a week and love it. I feel I made the right choice.

    Good picture and size, disappointed about SMART

    This is a nice tv. It's big, the picture is clear. The remote is simple. But I have to say, I'm disappointed with the ability of it as a SMART TV. I used to have a non-smart (regular) flatscreen tv, and I would use chromecast to cast shows to it to watch. Since I decided to upgrade my tv, I thought GREAT! I will get a SMART TV and then be able watch the shows on the apps on the tv. So, I got the TV. pickup at Best Buy was super easy which was great. Setting up the tv wasn't hard, but the stand for it is kind of wobbly. Not great. But then, I tried to add the USA and ESPN apps to the apps on the tv, and it wouldn't let me! I'm having to use the chromecast anyway! It does have the basics-- Netflix, hulu, amazon prime. But I thought I'd be able to add any apps to it. I'm so disappointed. I should have spent less money on a non-smart tv and still been doing the chromecast. It's a nice TV, I just wish I had known more about the smart tv capabilities before buying.

    Great TV

    Awesome picture, works well with Netflix, great for my bedroom. Was deciding between this model and a 4K TV in a 43 inch size, and decided to go with this one since I was wary about some of the reviews/information I read about cheaper model 4K TVs (picture issues with live sports, possible distortion with lower quality DVDs, and also the matter of the availability of 4K content (can't afford to go out and replace my hundreds of DVDs from the last 15 years with 4K products, and I'm still old school with just getting the free TV stations through the airwaves and using netflix)). It was also a good deal at the time I bought it (and less expensive than the smaller 4k tv I was considering). To my knowledge no one's ever complained about going with a larger TV over a smaller one. The only knock against it that I've come across and that someone else pointed out in a different review that I read before purchasing this model is that the brightness is all preset--you have to pick a certain setting and can't adjust it like you can, say, the volume. That is a small flaw I can live with though.

    Great Value, Feature Packed

    I have had this TV for a month and am happy with it so far. The smart TV features are great and very easy to use. Regarding the picture quality, I found the predefined settings (e.g. sports, cinema, vivid) result in a picture that is too dark. You will definitely need to do custom settings to get good picture quality, but once you do you'll be very happy with the results. The legs are very flimsy,it seems like the TV is designed for wall mounting. If you have small children be very careful when using the legs, the TV seems like it could topple easily. Over all a great buy.

    I bought this tv last night to replace the Sharp brand that didn't work right out the box. I'm glad now that the Sharp 43# didn't work because I was able to get a bigger screen with the LG 49" and a better value, for just a few extra bucks. The sales associate was very helpful and patient with me, as I made my decision. I'm a woman and it was not too heavy to lift from the car to the house. Set-up was easy, although I'm a techy and love to put things together. I must say, the stand was more difficult to install due to the length of the screws - longer screws would make installation much easier. Setting up the tv was a breeze. The pic is bright and vibrant.
