I bought this last week from Flipkart and so far my experience with this product is really good. Some of the basic pros and cons which i felt from my short experiencennProsn- Excellent Picture qualityn- Though it says 100 Hz you woudn't find any picture lags when watching sportsn- 3d is simply amazing. I watched few 3d movies and it played with easen- 3d glasses are light weight and doesnt affect your eyes. you get 4 glasses and u can enjoy watching it with your family. Other Active 3D tv's only offer 2 glassesn- Web OS is simply amazing. Have tried the Smart share and browsing. Works like a charmn- With Smart share you can connect any of your devices connected to the same WiFi network. No additional apps need to be installed in your system or mobile. Except for iphone, any other device can be connected. I was able to stream a movie directly from my laptop to TV just by right clicking and share it with LG TV from my laptopn- No hassles during exchange. I ordered on Fri and got it delivered on Sat. They keep the new one and take the older onennConsn- Very few options for Iphone users. You cannot share your screen with TV if you own an Iphone. However you can watch Youtube videos in tv when playing from your iphone through the you tube app in TV. You jus need to pair ur mobile. I think android supports screen sharing but I have not tried itn- No glasses for kids size. You may need to purchase a new one for kids size. Since its pasasive, the glasses are cheap. You can get another one for less than 250 Rsn- TV Volume is a bit low compared to other modelsn- At times you might see the visuals moving fast. This might be due to refresh rate but happens rarelyn- Installation and demo is done separately. The ppl who delivers the tv will not do it. You have to call and schedule ur installation and demon- It has an inbuilt memory. However I was unable to record any tv channels. The installation guy told me tht i cannot record if i have airtel dth. Although some DTH like hathway have no restrictions which allows to recordn- Does not support skype unless you buy an LG camera. Does'nt come with inbuilt camera. Have tried to connect my web cam through USB but it didnt worknnOverall the product is really a grab for this price. You may find it cheap in other online shopping sites but if you wanna exchange this is the best price you could get.
Product is Ok, but if you face any problem in TV, you wont get any assistance from LG Service Centre as happened with me. On facing a technical problem, I registered a complaint (Complaint No. RNA140820044425) on LG Service Centre. After 5 days of registering my complain a technician visited to my home. He told me that a part of it needs to be repaired for which I confirmed him to do so. Since then I have tried more than hundred times (in last 15 days) to contact that technician/local customer care but neither that technician nor local LG customer care (Bharuch Branch, Gujarat) is picking my phone. I have made more than 10 calls to LG Customer care and they just assure me that you will receive a call from us within 24 hours, but till date I have not received any call. So now I am planning to purchase another TV, but obviously not LG.
I don't understand why people in India are so bent upon installation guy/service guys. I mean, you spent close to a lac of rupees on a TV and you don't have the technical know how to install it ? What does it take ? Why call it install ? I'm not saying you should know how to mount the TV, but any 6 year old could turn on the TV - its that simple !! It doesn't take an IT degree you fools !nnThis is what it takes :nnA strong man to put the TV on the console (which you expected would be free with the TV you cheap brat).nnA power cable to power it on. (yeah it doesn't run on Solar power like your water heaters yet).nnA HDMI cable to connect to your Dish TV (I doubt you'd have Tata Sky HD since you are a nut).nnAnd thats it. nnThe TV is not a freaking PC that you have to think a 10 times before installing stuff. nnThe TV installation guy came late ! God - what needs to be installed ? Just what ? Are you Obama ? And is the service guy installing a GPS tracker in your body ? Seriously people ! Grow up !
Long review, but hopefully worth it :) read on.nnProduct:- 5 stars for the TVn- this TV is rated at 100W - till now, I was unable to find this info online (only standby power is mentioned which is rather useless)n- for those who are interested, this is the -TH variant, and not the -TA or -TBn- the table top installation has the base occupying a width of about 36 inches, so check if your current setup can support that width (I found out the hard way)n- magic remote is brilliant and very easy to use, but takes a bit of getting used to - especially for older folks who may not have a very steady hand (since you are practically waving a wireless mouse in the air)nnPros:n- table top installation is a breeze - just affix 4 screws for the base and you are setn- awesome display (but then I am upgrading from a 29" CRT)n- resolution upscaler works very well - my current SD cable channels themselves look great at about 8-10 feet (so HD will be awesome!)n- pixellation is visible only if I am about 6 inches or less from the screenn- 2D to 3D conversion actually seems to work fairly decently, though obviously not as great as native 3D contentn- plays multiple formats of audio and video from USB without a hitchn- WebOS interface is easy to navigate through, and not very obtrusivennCons:- cut 1 star for overall minor issuesn- LG will take about 2 working days to install the TV (ideally should be same day as delivery) - hence I decided to do it myself since mine was a table top installation and not wall mountedn- during initial setup, trial and error to figure out Set Top Box remote control mode is painful (worst case, you have to retry 17 times to find which works)n- Wifi occasionally drops for no reason, so take the wired ethernet route if that is an option for youn- you cannot use Skype even for just voice calls - it requires a camera to even start Skype (obviously you have to buy it from LG)n- sound is ok, but the bass could have been better - maybe I just need to tweak some settings thoughn- need to push the USB drive into the port rather hard - I was worried about damaging the port with the force I needed to put, but the TV seems solidly builtn- documentation is woefully inadequate - the user guide is more of an installation guide. Need more information about how to enable and tweak the multiple features of the TV and use the magic remote to its full capability - agreed it cannot be in the printed booklet, but at least have it as a PDF on the LG website.nnnI'm still exploring and figuring out capabilities - will update the review if I find anything really bad or really great. Now on to the service side of the story.nnnOrdering:- cut 1/2 star for ordering difficultiesn- bought during Big Billion sale, and had to endure server crashes and random errors about not shipping the product to my PIN code and vanishing from cart, but finally managed to place the order after trying for almost 1.5 hoursn- got a decent exchange offer for the old working CRT TVnnnDelivery:- cut 1/2 star for delivery delaysn- scheduled delivery for 12th (Sunday) for the 11 am - 1 pm slot so that I'm home to receive it on weekendn- WS Retail shipped the product at 12:50 am on Sunday and finally delivered on 14th (Tuesday) - I had to stay at home for thisn- Flipkart did not proactively notify me of the delay - I had to call customer care once it was delayed, and they seemed equally clueless about exactly when to expect itn- even though the heavy rush due to large number of Big Billion deliveries may have stretched out timelines, Flipkart should have set expectations correctly rather than commit to one date and then delay - realize that customers also have other things to attend to and not just sit around waiting for Flipkart deliveriesnnOverall, less than happy with Flipkart this time (though never had reason to complain in the past, so I'll ignore the Big Billion fiasco and give another chance). And the TV of course is definitely worth it.
TV is good in a other sense BUTnnI recommend all buyers to not purchase any 2014 models of LG TVs as they are not qualified for webOS 2.0. The webOS 1.x in current state is slow and unstable with memory leak issues. Pretty much like a beta release. If LG is your choice, wait for 2015 series or go for another brand.
