      Bought this TV along with a PlayStation and a Blue-ray player as sort of a late Christmas present for the family. The picture is clear, sharp and bright at any angle. Video games and blue ray movies are also more awesome that ever before. The TV easily connects to the internet ,including Netflix, for tons of other video sources with great picture quality. If anyone asks me about TV's, I always recommend LG LED TV's.

      Good picture but disappointed in overall brightness of picture and sharpness of picture when watching sports . Need to research if calibration required . Tinning sound comes from speakers with certain voice frequencies . Need to check if speakers are defective. Great picture when watching DVDs .Overall good value for money considering all the features .

                  Not a bad over all t.v, although I feel the sound / volume part of the t.v could be a bit better. This t.v does have a good picture.

                      This TV was purchased to serve as a "large screen" monitor for various portions of an IP Network. Secondary use is for the TV portion. It functions perfectly in both capacities. For the Network monitoring, we have it connected to a workstation using a wireless video feed. The resolution is great for viewing "across the room" icons and details of the network. The TV portion is fantastic - basic cable provides both standard and HD channels that display well.

                                  I purchased this television on 12 21, 2010, and have never once had any negatives about its performance. Right out of the box it was flawless, using the preconfigured settings on default. After I became familiar with all of the options for pictures, sound etc, I customized it for my environment, and again it performed flawlessly. This is the first LG televsion I have owned, but certainly won't be the last. The internet capabilities further enhanced my experience, and could not have been easier to configure with my DSL MODEM. I stream entertainment frequently and have never had a glitch. I am currently in the market for one of the latest LG SMART Televisions, and if the one I currently own is an indication of what I can expect from the next generation, I know I will be impressed and very happy with my purchase. Way to go LG, wish more corporations had the same foresight on their products.

                                      I purchased this TV as a package deal that included an XBox. The XBox was a gift and the TV ended up in my possession. The TV has performed way above my original expectations. Excellent color. Very rich a vibrant. The internet access and apps are very intuitive. The only CON is the remote is a bit clunky.
