LG 42LB650V 42-inch Widescreen 1080p Full HD Wi-Fi Smart 3D TV – I bought mine in November and it worked fine for the first few months then it suddenly started


Don’t get too excited about it. Well, i’m not the best reviewer so i’ll be very short. I can’t describe it with any better words. Yes, there is a wifi, yes, you can play games. Lg store has got a very poor amount of apps, all you can watch is youtube and catch-ups. Youtube doesn’t always give you a good quality videos. So i don’t really feel that my tv is as supernatural as it’s described. You can’t watch online movies as it says that adobe flash player needs to be downloaded and it actually can’t be downloaded for this tv.

Absolutely great tv,the only thing that dissapoints me a is the volume & the fact that it doesn’t come supplied with uk plug so had to run about trying to get one in shops before i could switch on but otherwise have had no other problems.

Amazing tv it’s worth it’s price the 3d is mind blowing when you play a blu ray 3d its stunning but it’s not really good for stuff that are not compatible 3d because black bars appear on sides of the screen which makes it quite annoying the tv looks stunning and the design is really good ,it’s good for gaming the hd is amazing and smooth with no lag when you play games ,deep colors makes the screen it looks perfect recommend this tv to everyone it’s really good and worth it’s price.

Picture quality is excellent. It’s a lot of tv for the money. Picture quality is excellent. Basically does what i want a tv to do. It also has an awful lot of features and functionality if you’re inclined to use them. My main criticism is with how little info you’re given on how to use themthe manual tells you nothing at all about how to use almost any feature of the tv. There is a clunky built in user guide, but finding what you want is difficult and even then the information is pretty sparse. Like, it’s supposed to be able to record to an external hard drive. I’ve plugged 4 different external hard drives into it and it doesn’t recognise any of them, whether formatted, unformatted, blank or otherwise. So *what* hard drives does it support?. Read lots of conflicting and vague info, and mostly come to the (possibly erroneous) conclusion that *if* i plugged a hdd it liked into usb1 only (an undocumented ‘feature’), the time machine feature ought to ask me if i want to format the device. But no info on why it won’t accept any of mine. Or what i should buy instead.

  • Looks stunning and packed with features
  • Great viewing and connectivity
  • Great picture quality
  • Great TV! Glad I took the plunge with this one.
  • Some annoying functionality issues, but not a bad TV
  • Brilliant, feature packed TV

Great viewing and connectivity. Lg 42la620v 42-inch widescreen 1080p full hd cinema 3d smart led tv with freeview hd/built-in wi-fi and lg osi also have the 32 inch version of this model and have been delighted with it over the last month. This version comes with a free trial of amazon prime with unlimited streaming of tv’s and movies – there is a green card stuck onto the side of the box go to amazon. Uk/free1 but i think you can get this via your account now anyway. ——–it’s big so i think it’s a two people job to position it. Not much to do here to the hardware, only attach the stand with the supplied screws. I attached my sky box to hdmi 1 and my surround amp to hdmi 2. There is plenty of connectivity but it’s all round the back and side so it can be difficult to see what you are doing but this is the same with most tv’s.

Used for the price hd could be a little better but the 3d is amazing nice looking and simple. One word to be used for the price hd could be a little better but the 3d is amazing nice looking and simple to use much better then i expected only niggle is some time will go on standby on its own but can easily be avoided by pressings anything on the remote all in all a nice tv with cheap 3d glasses good if you have kiddies.

Delivery was a day later than offered which is unusual for amazonsetting the tv up was guite easy and direct internet connectionwent smoothlypicture quality is super and the sound much. Better than i wasled to believe. One small irritation is the remote control which often connectsto”live television” when selecting the down button.

    Very happy with this great little tv. Cracking tv used in the bedroom. Good picture quality and the 3d is great. The media playing function works a treat and has played all that’s been thrown at it. The webos smart functionality is the best out there and i have no trouble connecting to the wireless router downstairs and streaming amazon prime, now tv, youtube and browsing the web with no buffering or freezing up. Nor do you need any additional boxes as the lg webos replaces the need for these. The sound is surprisingly good from the tv speakers but i bought an lg soundbar which is an obvious improvement. I am disappointed that lg don’t use generic bluetooth for speaker and headphone connection in order to force customers into buying more lg products. This of coarse is a nasty little trick employed by most, if not all tv manufacturers but can be easily and cheaply by-passed. In my case i bought a tiny bluetooth transmitter for £11 which has an inbuilt rechargeable battery and can also be directly powered via a usb, either tv or spare phone charger.

    Purchased this to replace an older “none” smart tv. I have to say that the quality is very good, the sound isn’t perfect, but it isn’t too bad – but we ended up purchasing a sound bar to compensate. We have samsung smart tv’s in the other rooms but because of the price on the lg, we decided to give it a go. The reason i haven’t given it a full 5 stars, is because it doesn’t have all of the players, it only has bbc and five. However, if you aren’t too bothered about the players, then it is a good purchase.

I bought mine in november and it worked fine for the first few months then it suddenly started to switch itself off and back on again and would loose internet connections, the way round i found was to unplug tv leave and then switch on again after that worked fine. It had a firmware upgrade a few days back and this with the re-booting has got worse and lost total access to bbc iplayer. Reading forums this appears to be an issue with this model. I contacted lg and was successful to get someone helpful on second call. They arranged a collection the next day but i will be without tv for upto 10 to 12 days which i think is totally unacceptable in this day and age – i think i should have been offered a replacement to tie me over, fortunately i do have a second lg tv. So i now wait to hear from lg.

    I was a bit nervous about buying on amazon as always bought locally. The only negative thing really is that i could not trace my parcel until the sunday morning which made me nervous but, on a positive note the communication with myself and tvsandmore was excellent they reassured me and made me feel at ease. My tv arrived on monday way before the delivery estimate date. The delivery guy was friendly even tho he was on the phone while carrying my tv which had me on pins lol i had my boyfriend to assemble the tv for me it was easy to put the base on and easy to set up in all i am so chuffed well worth the money it’s very attractive too my boyfriend says he is jelous of it i am so happy with my choice. I do recommend you buy the magic remote with it makes it so much cooler. Thanks very much tvsandmore.
