Top quality LG product, cannot fault it. People that rate the sound as poor need to remember this is a TV! The sound quality is good for normal living room use.

You can't expect the best for the price. If you just want a tv and ain't too bothered then this would do. Don't expect too much from this

Sound is terrible Picture quality was not as good as I had hoped Returned mine and pulled out money for the Samsung 800 series. Much more what I was expecting

It's LG. They are still the best value/quality TV you can get. Plug and play easy install.

More picture/sound functions than you could ever need.
