I bought this TV at Walmart because it was $100 less expensive at Walmart. The TV is excellent, it exceeded my expectations. First, the picture quality is excellent. I was going to upgrade to an HD Cable box for $10 a month, but the picture was so good, I decided not to spend the money. Secondly, the network wireless connection is very strong. I have my internet modem and router in an home office over the garage (which is seperate from the house) and the TV still picked up the signal. I had the TV shipped to a store and it came in less than a week, even though the estimated time of arrive (at time of order) was much longer. I went in at 7am to the local Walmart, picked up the TV, an associate helped me with it to my car, and when I got home I hooked it up 1, 2, 3...no issues - easy as pie. I did not purchase an additional sound system of any sort...the sound is more than adequate for the room that I have it in (@ 20X20). The remote is easy to use - very intuitive. It is a great TV and value.

SmartShare is HORRIBLE!

Of course a TV with these specs looks great. I had to turn off TrueMotion because it gives my wife motion sickness but the picture is crisp, the refresh rate is great. (The screen is very reflective tho so make sure to turn off your lamps). If the only thing you ever plan to do is watch TV, this would be great. Except, why would you buy a "Smart TV" if that was all you wanted? LG has made the worst possible decision starting some time in 2012 and continuing into 2013 models. They have abandoned the fabulous MediaLink app for SmartShare to view videos streamed from a DLNA enabled server such as PLEX or Windows Media Server. With this new interface, you can painfully navigate through a file system slowly and unresponsively. You no longer get any features supporting nice titles or screenshots or anything. It's like using an iPad for 6 months and then getting dropped into Windows 3.11. Please bring back MediaLink or at least give SmartShare the same featureset (and fire whoever designed it's disastrous interface).

Site to Store pick-up was a week ahead of schedule. Friendly and efficient workers helped me pick-up my order. I will say the overall value for this TV for the price is excellent. Great picture on “Vibrant” mode once you turn off the pre-set “Eco” mode. I thought I would need 2 HDMI ports rather than the 3 it came with. I was wrong and glad I got the 3rd. First two are used for Cable box and DVD player. Taking the 3rd port will be my ROKU 3 player. I thought I could transfer the player to my bedroom with my replaced TV but the SMART LG content is lacking with what I watch the most, NHL Game Center Live. (which looks outstanding on this TV). You also don’t have access to NBA TV such as the Roku gives you. I will use the LG Smart TV function only for You Tube (which is not on the ROKU) and some web browsing. It comes with the standard remote (not the “Magic Remote”). That’s OK, but the remote is clunky. Almost every time I use the Up Button to navigate through the Smart TV functions I end up pressing the “Smart TV” button above it and it takes me back to the beginning. And I don’t have big hands! Very irritating.

I took this out of the box, set it up in minutes, hooked it up to cable and wireless and I was watching TV. I love being able to watch Netflix and Hulu as well as being able to get on the internet. The picture is so crisp and clear. I would definitely recommend this TV.

In my opinion this unit will do very well as far as performance,and value!. Iv'e had this unit for a few days now,and I'm Really Impressed with it!. I Connected The Smart TV: to my DirecTV DVR:,and my Home Network: The LG Automaticly did everything for me! It Has an Amazing Picture Quality,and When looking at Movies you feel just like Your Right there behind the Camera in Reality,and your right there with the Actors!,and Thats Only at 60Hz Refresh rate! I Don't Have a Full 1080p HD: Reciever,only a DVR unit from Direct. So I can't Stream a Full 120Hz Rate: So if you don't have an HD: Box,and are only getting 720 resolution: You will still Get an Execlent Picture! I also Connected a Yamaha Yas 101 From the TV's Optical Out to the Sound Bar,Normally I would have connected My DirecTV reciever to it,But Not this Time These New Smart TV's Deliver Better Sound Quality Today,and Have to Because all Media Is Sreamed from your Home Networks,and other media dvices connected to it! The audio sounds 10 times Better connected from The TV, Than the Sattlelite/Cable Box: The Only thing about this Unit is that the Games can only be Controlled from an LG Magic Remote Unit,and Has to be purchased seperately,Because This Unit Doesn't Come with one: Specs: Dual Core Processor: Built in WiFi: Self adjusting back lighting,wich can be set to different levels to suit your taste: TrueMotion Enhancement advanced settings for an even more Superb Picture Quality: I'm Now an LG Fan!!. I don't know how to act! I'm not used to High End Fetures like this! I'm Very Well Pleased with this Product From LG: If anybody out there reads this review,and Don't have a lot of money to Spend,and want the Best you can get as far as todays Technology,and quality features in a TV: then You Should Really Consider this Unit! It has all of the lastest Features of 2013: As far as a Router to use for Cost Value to use with this unit I would recommend NETGEAR: That will steam HD: Content: PS: Yes I'm Still running Windows 7: This unit will Scan and dectect your system,and Sync with it no matter if it's windows 8,or 7: Etc:

sound: good enough. voices tend to get drowned out and with the clear voive on they get tinny or too loud. works well with my ps3 and smart sound on. night wanna grab a soundbar for movies and tv. picture: clear. takes awhile to get the settings right, for me at least. diagonal movement is pixelated, but other motion looks good.blu rays look great apps: run kinda slow.. web browsers nothing to write home about, it might be better with the smart remote , I couldn't tell ya. the settings cant be changed if your watching Netflix through tv(you get a simplified version if you press the "q.menu" button,, took me awhile to figure that out). games are nothing special. not even cell phone game quality but if your bored enough you might try it. network: connects to media centers easily and has an android app for a remote and game controller. on screen keybored is nice and smooth.

Our Plasma set died, so after a search, we bought this set based on clarity of picture, price (about one-fourth the cost of our plasma set and size. It fit our entertainment cabinet. We have the set in a large room, but it is clearly viewed by everyone watching. I like the ability to access the internet sources of programing like Netflix and Amazon. I can easily move into and out of these menus. I am highly disappointed in the sound. The speakers are in the rear of the set and it sounds like the audio is coming from out of a well. Volume has to be jacked up big time to be able to hear distinctly. Some sort of sound bar - extra cost - is going to be essential to fully enjoy movies or music. That will pretty much kill any price advantage there might have been. The remote is ok although I believe it could have been labeled more clearly. I have to say the Smart TV feature is somewhat of a waste. Entering website links, login and password detail, anything requiring keyboard entry, really, is very cumbersome and frustrating. Talk about a place for a REMOTE! And the internet screens are not full screen. Very disappointing.

This is my 4th LG flat screen. This one replaced a 5 year old 37 inch set, that still works fine but I wanted the Smart TV options. I am electronically challenged and even I had it up and running in less than an hour. The WIFI makes the hookup almost idiot proof and all that needs be done is attach the back to the TV and then to the stand. It weighs much less than than the 37 inch and fits into the 39 inch opening in my TV console, so I got 5 extra inches of viewable screen in the same space filled by my old 37" LG. Picture calibration is a breeze, but I like the Magic remote that came with 55" better than the old school remote with the 42". I understand this one can handle the Magic but it does not come with it. Password entering, etc. is tedious. Multiple HDMI hookup s unlike the 37". Has Smart Sound which is fine for me in movie mode, also get sports and music.

The first thing I noticed was the picture was beautiful. It's really nice that it has 3 USB ports and 3 HDMI ports. The remote is laid out very well. The quick menu let's you access the apps. I was impressed by the speed of the built in apps. In fact, since I have it, I disconnected my Chromecast because the TV is faster. I was able to tune the motion blur to tone down the "soap opera" effect. The speakers are on par with other manufacturers. It was ok for watching movies and the virtual surround sound surprised me. The limitations came when I streamed music to it. You could not hear the lows in the music but, it's a television; not a stereo system. There is a built in media player that plays mkvs so, that was really good. I have it on a stand so, I wish the stand could swivel. That is my only gripe.
