    Perfect TV for my family wants and needs!

    Wanted a small TV for our living room that didn't scream "TV!" and could blend into the decor; this was the perfect choice. Main uses are for morning kids cartoons and catching the news. Don't be bothered by the 720p resolution in the world of 4K TVs; at 24-inches 720p is fine and clear and you would hardly get any additional benefit if it was 1080p or 4K at this size. The TV is lightweight and thin and the white color of the TV gives it a premium look and feel. The remote is also lightweight and has every button you need to function this TV. The built-in smart TV function works good but a little slow. The interface is nice and has every major streaming service you need (Netflix, amazon, hulu, vudu, googleplay, and youtube). You can download additional apps from a limited selection but you cannot search for other apps outside of that limited selection to download so I was disappointed that MLB.tv was not included. You can always plug-in a separate streaming device that fits your streaming needs better. Overall this is a great little TV. I did encounter one stuck/dead green pixel on my unit, but you could only see it if your face was right up at the screen; from our normal viewing distance it was not noticeable at all.

    Good picture, weak to no wifi

    Posted

    I usually only buy Samsung TVs but saw this one when looking to replace a non smart tv in my kitchen. I specifically was looking for a smart tv that could wirelessly connect to the internet, so I could view Netflix without need of separate blu ray dvd player. Anyway took a chance on this LG. The picture is beautiful and sound quality is good for a small TV. TV connected initially to internet and was able to do so for about 4 months, then one day when I tried to bring up Netflix it said I was not connected. Every computer and every Samsung TV in my house connected without problem. I unplugged modem/router and plugged back in. Plugged and unplugged TV, tried restart, contacted LG online and followed all suggestions. But I knew the wifi was shot when I tried a wired connect to the internet and it showed my network and had me put in my security code and tried to connect but could not and at the end of trying to connect took me back to the screen that showed networks available. Again all other computers and my other TVs which are Samsung smart TVs connected without problem. Contacted LG and was suggested to send in to be repaired, I am not going to do that unless they would pay all shipping and handling to them and return to me, but pretty much guess that is not going to happen. Extremely disappointed in this TV when after only 4 months of use the internal wifi appears to be shot. I replaced with a Samsung smart TV and this one is now in an upstairs guest bedroom. Total waste of money.

    Didn't even last 1-1/2 years

    This is my first LG TV purchase. It sat mounted up in my kitchen, only used for watching cooking videos online. The TV was not turned on everyday. I would say every other day, a couple hours at most. I loved the TV. It did exactly what I needed it too and the white color was great for my white kitchen. After about a year, the TV started jumping, or the screen would jump, right after it was turned on. It would stop shortly, so I didn't worry about it too much. a year and 4 months into owning it, the whole screen started jumping all over the place. It would go away, but then come back mid-video. I called LG, and of course, it only had a one year warranty. Even though it's a small TV, I expected more than one year of use before it completely broke! Especially because it wasn't frequently used. I have 4 Samsung TV's, the oldest getting near the 8 year mark, and they have performed flawlessly. I will never again buy an LG TV, especially a more expensive, larger TV. Not only that but Best Buy wants $25 to recycle my junk TV that I haven't even had for 2 years!!! I decided to replace it with a nicer, larger Samsung and am purchasing it through another retailer. I understand that companies have warranty time frames, but 1 year on a TV is ridiculous. I have had a Samsung tablet for 5 years and the charger cord quit working. I called them (and it was out of warranty) and they sent me a new charger cord anyways, within the week. LG's customer service was horrible and so non-apologetic. "Just throw our junk in a landfill lady, you are out of luck," type service. I am glad I discovered how poor LG is through a smaller investment.

    This LG 24" Smart TV is great for a bedroom. With an Ethernet port & WiFi built in streaming programs from Google Play Movies & TV, YouTube, Netflix, Hulu,VUDU, Amazon Prime Video, Crackle, Pandora and other available services is a breeze. Simply hit the home key and visit the LG Content Store and select the services you want to use and hit install. You can easily move and delete services by using the arrow keys when you are on the home screen. Simply use the left and right arrow keys to select the service and press the OK key to watch. To move or remove a service from the home screen use the left & right arrows. To select the service you want to move. Press the up arrow once to move it then use the left & right arrows to place it where you want it to appear on the menu bar then press the down arrow when you have it where you want it. To delete a service use the left & right arrow keys to select the service you want to remove. Press the up arrow 2 times until the X is selected and press OK. It will ask you if you want to remove the selected app. Choose Yes with the left & right arrow keys and then press OK to delete the app. All apps can be reinstalled through the LG Content Store. I hope this review is useful to some people that are having any issues setting up this LG Smart TV for streaming programs online. Or for those interested in purchasing this product.

    Better picture than 24" Samsung

    I bought this TV because Samsung foolishly discontinued making 24" TVs. To my surprise, the picture is better than Samsung's. Other than not having a headphone output (which is really stupid), it has all the right features. It has two HDMI inputs and the ability to play media recorded on a USB thumb-drive. I would like it better if it didn't have the funny bump on the bottom, which I suppose is someone's idea of style. LG makes two models of 24" TVs. There is a less expensive version only available in black, that has only one HDMI input whereas this one is white and has two HDMI's The white looks very nice in a kitchen or dental office, but I would like to see the same features, particularly the second HDMI input, available in a black cabinet as well. This model is about #30.00 more than LG's cheaper 24" model, but worth every penny of the difference. If you want a 24" TV, you should probably buy it while it's still available, as it's likely that LG will discontinue 24" TVs soon, just like Samsung did. LG tends to follow whatever trends Samsung sets. Hopefully, they'll realize that there is still a strong market for 24" TVs and not follow Samsung's foolishness.

    Impressive Picture and Sound

    This is an excellent TV. You need to tweak the settings to get the best picture but I think the picture is great even when the source is just SD cable TV from Comcast. I tweaked several of the options for picture quality, I am favoring the Cinema mode for now but also frequently use the Expert Bright Room and Expert Dark Room modes. I find the sound is more than satisfactory in my kitchen. It does not sound tinny at all but has a nice clear depth to it. Again you need to play with the audio options to find what works best for you. For me the best sound seems to come from either the Standard or Cinema modes. I love the white bezel in my kitchen and the white remote which matches it. I have no problems with the remote buttons and layout, not sure why some reviewers don't seem to like it. Also, this tv does have an optical digital audio output on the back contrary to the product specifications above. See my photos.

    I surprised myself by buying this TV sight unseen, but I read a lot of reviews and saw that it was highly rated. I really wanted a white TV for my bedroom, and this was the only option I saw. Very pleased! The picture quality is wonderful, as is the sound quality. There aren't written directions for operation, but there is an owner's manual on the TV. I found this a bit frustrating because I had to go from the instruction manual back to the setup and back again, and I'm not technologically inclined. I had a question during setup that I couldn't figure out, and I called customer service. This was on a Sunday evening, and I had little hope of speaking with someone right away. But I was answered by a friendly, knowledgeable person who helped me straight away, so that impressed me a lot. Despite my issues with the initial setup, which after all is a one-time event, I'm thrilled with the quality and value of my purchase.

    Wonderful picture but...... No Roku app available

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    BEWARE - only 4 apps available for streaming TV. I needed a small TV to put in my office and the 24" size was perfect. We looked at the Insignia that was only $99.00, but the picture was a little fuzzy. Instead we went with the " SMART TV" which was substantially more - $169.00. In talking to the sales person we explained that we needed to be able to add Sling TV so we could use the streaming service. We had the app already on 2 other TV's in the house We were assured that we would be able to access Sling TV and it would be fine. He neglected to say that you cannot get the app from the LG store!! You must have a separate ROKU box in order for it to work!! We spent extra money for the smart TV, but it is not really that smart. You only get the basic streaming choices - HULU, Amazon, Netflix and YouTube. Nothing else. Husband is ticked off big time! Luckily one of the TV's we replaced had a Roku box that was no longer needed. It gets 2 stars for the picture compared to the other TV's that size.

    My first 'LG' product. . .excellent. First pleasant surprise was when the stand 'snapped' in place so easily, and it's so sturdy. No messing around with screws etc. I was impressed already. The white frame makes the picture seem more expansive. The quality of the picture is excellent. I noticed one review stated it didn't give much flexibility with controlling the picture. Well basically you can choose the degree of brightness, but the level of color and the tint are fixed, but in ,my opinion it's perfect. I'm very happy with it. At first I was just using it as a Roku player, as I had added a lot of apps on my Roku stick. ( that goes in #1 HDMI port ). Then I decided it would be nice to spoil ,myself even more and add cable via my #2 HDMI port. ( it's my bedroom TV ). Don't use it for the social media. I don't think they could make it any easier to set up, and if they made the white in larger sizes ( 30"-45" say ) I'm sure they would be popular. I commend LG for a quality product , and low energy too !!!

    So. I bought this originally for our small travel trailer. We had a REALLY old outdated 19”. So I measured the hole the tv needed to fit in and this is only one of like 3 I could find. So I bought it. It fit perfectly! I loved it so much I bought a second one! My treadmill routine was getting old with my iPad mini watching Netflix. I have NO cable in my treadmill room,so I bought this for using the apps solely. I’m a girl and I set it up by myself. It stands out because it’s white. Like apple products. 99.9 of tvs are dark colored. The ONLY complaint I have is the speakers. It’s hard to hear it on a treadmill. So I bought a sound bar. I would assume if you bought this for a busy dorm or whatever where the noise level is high, buy a soundbar for it. Even my bigger smart tv has crappy speakers. They can’t get amazing speakers in such a tiny space. I bought the VIZIO 2.0 and it was easy to pair with this tv.

    worst tv with the worst wifi connection

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    We choose this "smart" tv to play movies from netflix, amazon and youtube videos in the kitchen; mostly because it was the only white color option out there. The included apps do not work and the screen go black after few minutes at the beginning and later after few seconds; if freezes and it doesn't even turn off, you have to unplug it to restart again. We tried everything, even smart view from our phones, and nothing works; the wifi is just too slow or the processor is not good?? We restarted the whole system several times, we try to update the software and nothing works after 3 weeks we brought it back to best buy and we are waiting to see if we can get a refund since bestbuy did not want to take back after 14 days!?. We have two more smart tvs (from different manufacturers) and they do not have this problem so we couldn't blame the internet. Please stay away from this TV, the whole experience is horrible. We should have read all the reviews... very disappointing.

    Best TV Money Can Buy!

    Posted
    SavyShopper

    I recently purchased this TV about 3 weeks ago and I must say It was BETTER than what I expected! It was on sale at the time and now it is $30 more. It has more features on it than you can imagine and it replaced my old analog TV because that didn't pick up High Definition Signals over the air waves like the LG Smart TV. I cut cable TV and purchased an indoor TV Antenna from Best Buy and to my "SURPRISE" when I hooked up the TV to the indoor antenna the picture was AMAZINGLY SHARP & MUCH CLEARER than the CABLE! This is my 2nd LG TV that I purchased from Best Buy and this was for my kitchen. Cable TV suppresses the signal that you receive on your TV; outside/inside antennas DO NOT!! You will not be disappointed with this purchase! I am VERY HAPPY and you will be too!!! Any questions? I'll be glad to answer!

    Meh TV, Even Worse SMART TV

    Posted
    Dissapointed

    This was an extremely disappointing TV. I've had it for a few months because it worked for me until I wanted to use the most basic feature of bluetooth. If you are looking for any support videos for this TV, don't even try to look for them, because there aren't any. Every support video for LG Smart TV's have completely different setups than this TV. The other TV's guides and OS's seem much user-friendly and extensive than this model. It advertises bluetooth capabilities, but don't be deceived, they can't connect to anything like headsets or anything useful. I was looking for a universal remote on my iPhone to use for this model, but it doesn't support any. Only upside is the screen. It has a great picture, but it doesn't outweigh the incredible poorness in every other area. DO NOT BUY. Look for a model that has a decent OS. Like a Samsung.

    A month after purchase the TV deleted all of the apps. All of them, just disappeared. It also deleted all settings which could allow me to fix or reset the TV. There was no reset option, no help/assist option, or anything else that could've helped me. There's also only ONE physical button for the TV and it does nothing to help. I contacted LG for help and they ignored what I said, telling me to do things I couldn't do because the options were gone, which I'd told them. Finally they told me to take it in. I took it into Bestbuy and they said they couldn't do anything about TVs. I'd have to sent it in, but for that I needed to make an appointment and come back. By the time it'd be fixed it would've cost about as much as the TV itself. I will never buy from Bestbuy or LG again.

    Good video but the LG Apps are sketchy

    Bought this television because of the size. Needed a Smart TV to fit in a corner under a kitchen counter. For that it was perfect. We wanted to be able to use it to bring up internet videos rather than tying it to a DishNetwork receiver. Unfortunately the Amazon Prime App (the one we use for most videos) will not load and run on the TV. YouTube works OK as does Pandora but Amz is toast. No help from LG or Amazon to get it fixed since it is always the other guys problem. So, overall this TV serves about half the purpose for which it was intended. Hooked up a LG DVD player instead and that works OK but I have to use 2 different remotes; way less than optimal.

    I bough this to set up in my kitchen, and also for when I am in the mood to sit out in the balcony and just hang out. Since it is tiny and is very easy to carry, I can easily hook this up using the outdoor plug (obviously will have to unhook and bring back in after I finish because it is not meant for outdoors). Picture quality is not bad. Remote is a little on the cheap-ish side, but can deal since it isn’t my main tv anyway. Very easy to set up. Speakers not the best in the world, but enough for what I need it for. Overall, not a bad product. Would recommend for anyone who is looking for small smart tv (and for those who only need it for basic apps like YouTube, Netflix, etc.). Would be great for small areas like kitchen, dorm room, walk-in closet, etc.

    The smart panel offers many choices of popular market streaming services, like Netflix, Hulu & AmazonPrime, and can be easily customized to show those you select. In addition the Wi-Fi automatically found my router for updates and access to my photo, music and video server. I mounted this small TV on a simple standard bracket. Initally the braket & cables interfered, but I solved the problem cheaply with four 1/2” nylon bushings (HomeDepot) and longer screws to the TV back VESA mounting holes. I also used right angle HDTV adapters to closely fit the TV on the wall without a recess cutout. As mounted, it is 2.5” deep. If you intend to use both HDTV and RCA plugs, you will probably need right angle adaptors for both.

    The image is good quality so that gets this thing one star, plus I can't choose zero stars, what it really should get. Everything else about this tv wreaks of cheapness. The TV weighs less then a bag of sugar so you will want to stabilize it if you aren't mounting it. I do suppose if you are mounting it, the light weight is a good thing. But the real bummer and deal breaker is the power cord doesn't stay plugged in. I have to wiggle it just right for it to power on. Then when I turn the TV the least bit, it comes unplugged again. This is going right back to Best Buy - a 40 minute drive - uggghhh. Save yourself the hassle, buy anything but this one.

    We needed a white TV to be installed in a high end all white kitchen. This fit the bill perfectly and is a big name product from LG which is a plus for reliability. The picture looks great and despite it only being 720p, it doesn't matter for such a small set unless you plan to be watching it from less than a foot away. I have an Apple TV mounted to the back of the TV (3m taped holder) and a short HDMI cable. The HDMI arc works and the apple TV remote will auto sense and control the TV volume and power on/off this LG TV. As a plus the LG remote can be learned to the Apple TV and the LG remote can also control the appleTV. We are not using the 'smart' features of the TV but they did look extensive for this small set. Overall this is a great set and one of the few you will find in a completely 'white' frame to match your decor.
