Product Description
Metallic Design

The metallic design makes the TV slimmer, as it uses just one frame. The metallic finish adds to the aesthetic, making the TV the centre of your living room.

IPS Panel

The IPS Panel used by LG is the reason why LG LED TVs have clearer, more consistent, and sturdy screens. IPS offers a color impression that is most identical to that of the original image. Among LCD panels, it is visibly clear that IPS shows the most consistent color and contrast from all angles. Free from color wash and contrast loss, it is the ideal panel for all purposes. IPS is also decidedly superior to the competing panels in the clarity of its pictures during fast motion display, rendering blur-free, crystal-clear pictures.


A brilliant LED back light renders crystal-clear images, true blacks, and the most vivid, life-like colors.

Triple XD Engine

LG's latest and most advanced Triple XD Engine brings the highest level of excellence in color, contrast, and clarity for the best picture quality and performance.

USB Movie

Plug and play. Connect your USB or external hard drive to the USB port to play its contents on your TV screen.


LG TVs are DivX Certified and can play DivX video of up to 1080p HD resolution. Enjoy the vast variety of premium content from the internet through DivX HD.

Smart Energy Saving

The Backlight Control function controls the brightness of the TV. The Screen Off function lets you switch off the screen while keeping the sound or music alive. Standby Mode Zero function sets your TV to a power saving mode where zero electricity is used.

Motion Eco Sensor

The Motion Eco Sensor is a brilliant new technology that reduces power consumption by slightly adjusting the brightness of the screen relevant to the speed of the pictures.

MCI 100

Motion Clarity Index, the maximum number of response signals per second, is a comprehensive indicator of the genuine clarity of fast motion display, incorporating factors beyond mere frame rates. LG's detailed backlight scanning, advanced panel technology and powerful engine all add to a superb performance to reduce the blur in fast-moving pictures.


With two HDMI ports, connect two devices, such as a gaming console and a Blu-ray player, to this TV simultaneously.

Audio Out

With various Audio out options, LG TVs can connect to external home theatres or active speakers for enhanced sound experience. Audio out options available are headphone out, RCA Analog out or Digital optical audio out (Vary from model to model)

Two Channel Speaker System

This TV has a two-channel speaker system for a quality stereo sound experience.

Flexi Mount

This LG TV comes with flexible wall mount brackets which lets you rotate the TV as required. (Disclaimer: Number of directions in which the TV can be moved after wall mounting vary from model to model.)

Good Budget Buy

So i got this TV on the Big Billion Day
It usually goes for 43K around on BBD it was 39K , minus 2000 card related Cashback , minus 4000 for CRT working exchange , so around 33K-35K , Not bad eh ;)

Tv picture Quality is good enough
All formats play fine with USB
i found The GAME mode better than Cinema, soccer and all
The biggest Pro is LG providing free wall mount , which tilts both vertically and horiontally queit a lot , which i am under the impression no other vendor provides.

Worth the price

Before reviewing the product, let me explain other stuffs.

- The exchange offer flipkart quotes is applicable only if you are in bangalore or certain places very near to the warehouse. So as a buyer from chennai, i was not able to avail the exchange offer
- Flipkart's ekart logistics does not handle the delivery for these products unless you are from banglore. So expect a 3 or 4 day delay in delivery of the product if not ordering from banglore. Packaging was top...

This TV has pathetic sound, When you will take it out from the box and install it and bring it to full volume , you will be shocked by the output absolutely terrible sound, I could literally compare its sound to my laptop.
Picture quality is fine

Only buy if you have additional home theatre , otherwise invest 5-7k more and get a better tv
dont get carried away by the discounts.

A value for Money deal

I bought this through flipkart.. very happy with the delivery service exactly at given time..but not so happy with installation.

but yes very lucky, quick service within 4 hours of request registration (may be the result of ...

Best value for money IPS Panel display

Slim, stylish TV that is competitively priced. Nothing to complain about with the picture quality. There are no Smart Wi-Fi features or 3D compatibility, but it does have Freeview HD.
Also the sound volume is on the lower side.
