LG Electronics 32LB580V – Great little smart tv


Great for live tv but i’m not so happy with the smart functions. Physical appearance is good, with solid-looking build, pleasing silver colour and thin bezel. The stand is robust but non-swivel. The picture quality is very good and the sound quite adequate, though a real audio buff would no doubt want to add external speakers. Magazine criticized the ease of use and i have to agree. The remote is small and cramped and looks as though it belongs with a cheap unbranded set. Pressing the ok button does not bring up a list of channels as on most sets. To select a channel other than by keying its number you seem to have to use the guide, which blocks out the current channel. The manuals have very little information on how to use the tv. There is a lot of safety information and pages on how to attach the stand, covering different models with different stands, but little on functionality or set-up. There is some information on connectivity options. There are numerous, hdmi, usb sockets plus component in and there is a scart socket – useful if you have old analogue recorders to connect. Refer to the lg site for full connectivity details. The quick set up guide is useless and tells you that you need a dongle to access the smart features, which is wrong.

Purchased this tv as i was searching for a low-cost smart hd tv for my room. Excellent good quality for the rate. Easy to established up, superb audio and image, other than the smart element of the tv the menus are speedy and uncomplicated to use. Would undoubtedly advocate this tv, for the value its and complete steal.

It fits beautifully in my modest place. It matches completely in my little home, the image top quality is excellent and the smart tv apps come in really beneficial.

Comments from buyers

“A superb TV for the money!, A fantastic 32″ Smart TV – with minor quibbles over Amazon’s details/USB drive options., Great for live TV but I’m not so happy with the smart functions, Great Telly for the Price, Good TV, sound is poor however, Great picture quality”

Seem is as you would assume for a properly priced tv, but nevertheless sufficient for my wants. While at times the remote is not the most responsive, you can download an app on your cell phone to command the tv which saves exploring for the distant, and in my encounter is far more flexible and responsive. Excellent colour, photograph, applications and ui.

Just abide by the onscreen instructions and the tv is great to go in a make a difference of minutes. I was instantly wowed by the clarity of the picture. I have an lg 22′ tv currently but this is this sort of a stage up in quality. It really is also a good dimensions for our condominium i would not want something greater. The amount of money of options blew me absent i just wasn’t anticipating them. There are built-in apps this kind of as amazon prime quick online video, netflix, iplayer, etc and the streaming good quality is flawless (although i guess this would depend on your wifi connection) but significantly – hd streaming that under no circumstances drops. Even even though my previous tv was also hd, i have never seen things glimpse so excellent. Even the depth from thirty, 40 year previous tv and movies that just isn’t necessarily remastered experienced a large amount of detail and clarity.

Good tv, audio is weak having said that. This tv is great price for funds almost everything is superior on it, while you may have to tinker with image quality to get it the way you like. The only bad issue about this tv is the sound excellent can seem genuinely tinny and echoes at occasions which really lets it down but you can modify it so it seems far better.

    Great smart tv features, great picture and great value for money. Bought this for its smart tv functionality and am seriously impressed with its performance. One comparison is the netflix app vs a new 48″ sony bravia (i also recently purchased). Netflix is smooth and speedy on the lg as compared the the jerly performance of the sony. The lg also immediately picked up on all the films and tv series i have on a nas, served up through serviio media server. The picture quality is also very good and i’ve no complaints about the sound so far either. Very pleased for the amazing price.

      We are extremely pleased with this tv, the picture is very good and clear and the sound quality is also good. We bought this for a holiday home so we have not used it a lot but so far i would definitely recommend this tv.

    But does not have the itv or channel 4 smart channels – despite it being advertised as having all. Gets bbc iplayer and the channel 5 one, as well as various pay apps and youtube, but does not have the itv or channel 4 smart channels – despite it being advertised as having all the latest smart things. I would rather not have facebook or twitter, but have all the tv channels. The picture and sound are both fine for me, but the privacy policy you have to accept to use it is appalling. I would consider buying from another manufacturer in future. If you don’t mind being investigated by your tv while not watching itv or channel 4 smart tv channels, then this will be a good buy.

    Lg 29 inch smart tv excellent valuebut. The picture quality is amazing, especially on hd channels. The sound quality is not as great though. I just plugged it into speakers and now it’s great. Have also really noticed the difference going from a 32 inch to 29 inch.

      This elegant tv/monitor was delivered promptly and packaged beautifully. There have been complaints by some reviewers regarding the remote, but i found no cause for alarm if one’s use is general or simple and not excessively technical. The picture is sometimes fuzzy until the viewer stabilises on one station; then the picture turns, superb. Nevertheless a few minutes ago lg customer service informed me that microsoft withdrew skype from this and many other lg tv models. And therefore if you want to use skype, do not buy this 24mt30 lg tv.
