I like this T.V as it has a large screen that you can pretty much view from any angle in the room. If not, you can still set the T.V to an angle that is suitable for you. Initially I was nervous to move the T.V around as it seemed a little unsteady, however it is in fact very secure so there was no need for me to be nervous moving it!
The sound quality is good, although we have purchased a surround sound to give it more of a boost. If you're not using a surround sound it can sometimes sound a little tinny, although sometimes it depended on what we were watching so that may also be the case for you.
The picture quality is decent. You can view HD channels on this T.V, which makes the picture quality a lot better. You can sometimes get a little screen burn if you pause the screen often, so we try our best not to pause it too much. The screen burn disappears after a short while. I would recommend leaving the T.V on for a good amount of hours when you first use it as sometimes that helps with the screen burn.
The remote responds well to our demands and the T.V was easy enough to set up and install. It looks great. The large screen is really cool and it's great for watching films on.
We paid £749 for ours, which we thought was pretty cheap for a screen of that size.
Around a year ago my boyfriend was looking for a new TV bigger than the 32" we already owned. After many hours of searching and umming and ahhing over which was best, good for certain activities etc he decided on this particular model.
As I understand it had pretty good reviews all round and he went to the shop to purchase it and paid around £799. This included delivery as they don't allow plasmas to be transprted due to the tubes inside being upset and causing picture problems.
On first arrival of it I was suprised by just how big it was although the size of the room obviously plays a big part. The picture quality was really really good especially for full HD viewing I'm still suprised by how crisp and clear the picture is.
The sound quality is reasonable as well, I haven't found anything wrong with it anyway.
The TV itself comes on a black support stand but I do find it seems a little unsteady when swivelling the screen for perfect viewing however it hasn't had any unfortunate accidents as yet.
Just recently when the warranty was almost expired we had some problems with the remote and connecting with the TV it was stalling and just not responding. After phoning LG they came out after a few days and upgraded the firmware and it's been fine ever since.
The not so great thing about the TV is that even after just a few minutes of having the Virgin Media box paused the screen it gets image retention and so far it has got a little screen burn meaning you do have to be careful when leaving an image on there for even just a few minutes.
Despite the problems the TV is pretty good and if you're looking for a big screen then this is definately a good choice. Most problems LG are happy to sort except they won't do anything about screen burn but it hasn't affected the picture quality so far.
Having purchased this television just over a month ago I am having mixed feelings about it. As far as size goes I obviously can't complain there! The picture quality is very good and the sleek design looks very stylish in my living room. However, I am starting to think I should not have given into my boyfriend (who wanted the ridiculously big screen!) and bought something smaller and better quality. If a massive screen is all you're after then this would be a good bet for you. It is good value compared to other televisions of the same size.
My biggest gripe is the speaker quality. Being a musician I am over sensitive to these things, but I find the sound slightly muffled, especially when you turn up the volume. I do think it is important to look for good speaker quality when purchasing a television. My previoius TV was a Panasonic Viera and the sound on that was fantastic.
The second problem is caused by the screen. Although the quality is very good if you leave one picture on for any length of time it burns into the screen. For example, whilst watching Wimbledon there was a box in the right corner indicating to press the red button to 'Choose Match'. I found that this image lingered in the background for hours after changing the channel. Gets pretty annoying sometimes!
I'm not a technical expert but I know that the quality of this TV isn't the best. If you want a big screen for a reasonable price then go for it. If you are looking for top quality then I would definitely advise you to downsize and go for a Panasonic, Sony or Samsung.
