Great TV, Terrible Remote!
by JLett42 on August 24, 2012
Pros: Picture quality
Cons: Remote "smart" interface - also ties into the remote issue
Summary: I ordered this TV because it was the right price with the right set of features. It is getting harder and harder to find TVs that dont have the "3D" ...
Summary: I ordered this TV because it was the right price with the right set of features. It is getting harder and harder to find TVs that dont have the "3D" feature. I just wanted a high quality picture, internet connectivity, and no 3D...it was surprisingly difficult to find. It shouldnt be difficult to find a tv that doesnt boast the "3D" with stupid sets of glasses that just make you feel disoriented and ill. I dont need a gimmick, I need a TV.
At any rate, the delivery of the tv went smoothly and I was able to schedule a time that worked and it showed up with no real problems. I assembled it and set it up, which wasnt very difficult.
The picture on this thing is excellent. I had to adjust brightness, contrast, etc to get it to my liking but that is how it is with every TV.
And now, the remote:
I dont know what they were smoking when they came up with this thing, but it is the most obnoxious and useless remote I have ever had the misfortune of using. It awkwardly fits in the hand, is shaped like a boat so it always tips over, and the cursor is extremely annoying to use. It is a lot like the wii remotes, but less effective and just as childish.
Fortunately, I got a universal remote that works well, so I rarely have to use the horrid thing. They should at least put a real remote in there with the magic one or give us the option of which we would like to go with our TV.
Some review stated that it only works with one USB device and I can confirm this. I would recommend a solid keyboard to use the internet because there is no way you will be able to use the on screen keyboard and that stupid magic remote without frustration, disappointment, and eventually rage.
The stand that comes with it is solid and I am not worried about it falling over. Assembly would be best with 2 people...I did it myself and it was a bit of a pain to lift and place with just me.
*Buy Advice: for low price guarantee of this TV, check at: smarttv2012.blogspot.com/p/lg-55ls5700.html
Overall I give this TV 4 stars. For the price, you wont find a better TV. That being said, you should take those savings and invest in a universal remote.

Summary: A selling point of the 55LS5700 is the ability to use Skype. However, at this time there is no camera compatible with this TV, and therefore no way to use Skype! LG's AN-VC300 camera is not compatible and after speaking with LG's customer service I am nowhere closer to getting a camera that is compatible.
Nice Picture, BUT! google does not work!!
by spa1man on April 27, 2013
Pros: Picture Quality is GREAT!
Cons: Google does not work on 90% of the sites you will go to. Found out that LG has installed a flash player that is out dated and has no ability to update! That is crazy! LG customer support knows this and they just say sorry!
Summary: If your looking for a smart TV, don't buy LG they are ripping people off.If your looking for a smart TV, be SMART ...
