Submitted by imnotpetty - 4/16/2018

Ive had this for a few weeks as of now and havent had any technical issues with it. The picture quality is really good and the size is perfect for a medium sized living room. However the sound from the built in speakers isnt that good but is still acceptable. Definitely pick this up if you want a decent sized TV with good picture quality for cheap.

Poor sound. Picture quality unacceptable

Submitted by KennyD - 4/6/2018

The sound is awful. Five watts is not enough obviously. It sounds like a pocket transistor radio from the fifties. Plus there is no audio outputs If I want improved audio I have to connect the cable box to my receiver. The picture has a lot of controls but I cant get it to handle bright whites or dark scenes. The bright whites like sunlight on an outdoor game completely wash out the picture. Likewise its difficult to get a good picture with dark scenes on a TV show or movie. I do not recommend this model.

My TV suddenly died so I began checking new ones. Many reviews later I decided on this LG. It was bigger than the one I had and another I was considering and it was on sale for $50 off a combination I couldnt resist. After I got it home my only problem was the stand I was using was too small but that was minor since the TV worked so well. I am completely satisfied.

Submitted by Jarhead4life - 12/30/2017

I purchased this TV for a bedroom so I didnt need all the bells and whistles. However once I got it all setup I found out the speakers are absolutely horrible which led to requiring a sound bar. Here is the major problem...no optical audio output which makes the sound bar options limited. After getting a sound bar that works I love the TV. The picture is great and the price was great. Overall I am perfectly pleased with this TV.

The secrets out

Submitted by Clarksart - 12/6/2017

I watched a football game at a hotel downtown and soon found that I was so taken back with the quality of the picture that I was missing the game. I never said anything to any of my friends and I never got that out of my mind. So when the time came to purchase a new TV my decision was already made as to what brand I would be selecting. However once again I find myself intrigued with the amazing quality of this television but this time I didnt keep it to myself.
