Disappointing performance and warranty

 

I understand the world's not perfect and you'll get a lemon every once in a while, but LG needs to step up and recognize the value of a more comprehensive warranty and/or replacement policy for these defective units.

When the system works (which it did for a month or so), it has a lot of nice features. Picture and sound looked great and the ability to wirelessly stream Netflix was convenient

After about a month of use, the picture began to flicker during playback (Blu Ray, DVD and streaming content), eventually going black while the player powered off by itself. This requires a reboot after each occurrence, which takes a couple of minutes...

A solid B

 

I have 2 of these and am very happy w/ them. DLNA is my favorite feature, it works for me w/ no hassles; simply throw my content onto my NAS and boom. It also has good (not excellent) sound clarity once you customize the sound settings and the bass is...

Easy to set up ; Easy to use ; Good bass performance ; Good sound quality, once you tweak the "User EQ" setting ; DLNA; along w/ pictures, it plays HD MP4 video and iTunes w/o any type of format conversion/tweaking from my NAS ; Sub is compact and like...

Bad ; Built-in EQ modes are useless ; Forget about 'net based updates, they take FOREVER. Even though LG's site sometimes lags, wait for the update to become available and then do the USB method ; Center channel is a bit large and awkward looking ;...

Good sound and blue-ray playback, but interface needs work

 

If you're looking for a fairly straightforward blu-ray / surround combo, this is a good deal and a decent unit with good sound. It's unfortunate the interface is clunky as it would be much easier to recommend if it were. Be prepared for occasional...

Overall the sound quality is good. Speech in movies is clear and well balanced with the sub, the surround output is excellent, and it gets plenty loud ; Overall the spectrum is balanced, with neither the high end or low end lacking clarity (the sub...

In addition to an overall slow interface, there are several bugs that need to be worked out. Also, the single HDMI-in is unfortunate ; Bugs ; Sometimes when switching between audio inputs (I use an HDMI switch to deal with the above), you are forced to...

Defective on Arrival; Terrible Warranty

 

I contacted LG's support people to return the receiver under the warranty. It cost me $12 in packaging materials to send it the way that they require you to send it (in a box with 4 inches of clearance and packing material throughout). I later found...

If it worked regularly and had a reliable warranty that replaced defective products, it would be a nice little receiver

I purchased this home theater system in October. The system literally froze and crashed repeatedly, like a cheap computer, from the first day I started using it. One thing would make it go especially haywire: trying to turn up the volume or otherwise...

Good unless I'm watching TV

 

I purchased this system to use on an LG LED/LCD TV. Figured that the home theater remote would control all the features of the TV. I thought that since the components were all by the same manufacturer that everything would work flawlessly. I was...

5.1 sound ; BluRay player included ; Sound quality is very good ; Sound balance setup works very nicely ; Looks good with my LG TV

Exposed dome on center speaker - little fingers like pushing it. Exposed wires on the bottom of the wall mount speakers. Manual doesn't say if speaker performance is effected if the sound hole on the back is covered. HERE'S THE BIGGEST PROBLEM: ...

Overall - A good addition to your home theater.

 

I have owned this along with an LG 47LW5600 TV and the 3D is stunning, DVD movies are great and sound is awesome also. The Blu-Ray player has more features than I use since most of them are on my TV but setup such as network adapter, choosing source...

My LG tv did not have smart tv so I bought this home theater system and ran a cat5 cable from my router and I can get Netflix amoung a bunch of other aps. The surround sound is excellent with a lot of power and the remote control is compatible with my...
