      the user manual is very very brief and does not help with all of the functions that this t/v has. I have had many problems with the remote control and the company has to send me a new one. It's taking very long to get the replacement remote over 1 week!! The remote is very long and it is not user friendly !! No magic control feature, very bad. Sound is moderate, could've been better. T/v does have many hook ups in the back and side, great.There are control buttons on the front of t/v. The 3-D glasses are FREEKING GREAT, this I highly recommend. I really love the t/v features and apps and the color is so awesome and has awesome clarity, thank-you LG. I'm using ths t/v for my own purposes and to have friends over to see sports programs, so far they are great, very little blur at 720p,600mhz. I have not used the wifi dongle, b/c I am using the wired lan, this is more safe to use for security!!!!!

      This could be an awesome product, but - alas - it is not suitable for viewing 4:3 content. The picture quality itself is amazing but when it comes to display of 4:3 picture, this TV projects 2 ugly-looking anti-retention light-grey bars on the left and right of the picture with no option to turn them on or set darker. You can check the YouTube, there is a video with them. These are meant to protect the plasma from burn-in - and they completely spoil the viewing experience. LG has done a tremendous job creating a plasma with TruMotion frame interpolation engine (never thought it is possible), smart TV features, smooth 1080p AVI playback, 3D - and failed to implement the tiny option for changing color of anti-retention bars. My verdict is: this TV is not suitable for 4:3 TV broadcasts. Don't buy it unless you are pretty sure that you will watch only 16:9.

                          Love the fact that web sites are built in to the tv. The only problem I have had is it loses the internet quite frequently or it can't find the web site. Sometimes I have to reinstall the web sites in order for it to work. But when there are no issues, it is great.

                                  I consider LG as one of the most innovative and reliable brands. Back in the days, I used to be a loyal customer of Sony, but since I bought my first LG TV, I never looked for another brand. My appliances, TVs and other devices are LG.

                                      This is my 2nd LG HD TV purchased this year. The image has surprise me....awhole lot! I'm a Pioneer and Panasonic fan. Now, LG has become a choice to consider. The HD image is excellent. Sorry...I can not comment on 3D image since I haven't utilize the feature.

                                      Service and delivery comments:

                                      Awesome service....I receive verification phone calls to confirm my purchase, address and identity. The delivery was accurate, professional and courteous. I will certainly purchase from ABT again.
