Great basic TV, but if you want a Smart TV for web use be aware you will not be able to watch most web videos because TV does not support Adobe Flash Player! Salesman failed to mention this when he was telling me all the neat web apps like Espn3 and all the sports you could watch,which was a HUGE selling point to me!! I am very disappointed and that is why i could not recommend this product. A product as nice as this one and that has the capability to do the things this product could,why in the world make it incompatible for Adobe Flash Player??

The Global Dimming "feature" is an absolute nightmare and is impossible to disable. There is nothing more frustrating than watching a scene that goes into a dark room and then the entire screen dims to the point of being unable to see any detail whatsoever. Search for "LG Global Dimming" and you'll see dozens of examples of this in action. If I had known beforehand about this I never would have purchased it. Unfortunately, I did not discover it until I was past the time I could return it. This TV has an otherwise excellent picture and feature set, but just be aware of the Global Dimming before you purchase an LG. If possible, watch the into to an episode of Star Trek The Next Generation and you will be able to see the problem clearly. I keep hoping that a firmware update may add the capability of disabling this major aggravation, but so far no luck.

Huge input lag, poor coloring, auto-dimming is bad

By Bishop20

from United States

Comments about LG LB6300 Series 42" Class 1080p Smart LED TV:

I got this TV from a relative who upgraded to a 60 inch TV. I have the 42 inch model of this TV now. After I mounted it onto the wall, I hooked it up to my gaming computer to see how cool it would be to play on a 42 inch TV rather than my 17inch screen. I was terribly disappointed in what I found. The input lag compared to my other monitor was huge, making gaming not enjoyable. I spent about 20 minutes in the OS settings on my computer trying to get the coloring on the TV to look good, still haven't gotten it to show anywhere close to good (maybe it will look 'good' to people who don't have any feel for what a good screen looks like). What was incredibly annoying, on top of all that, was the auto-brightness feature. It never had just he right brightness for my room, it often changed its brightness, which looks so annoying, and I often found myself wanting to change it manually. I do not recommend this TV.

                      This is the fifth LG HDTV I've purchased and I couldn't be happier. The picture quality is great, in a dark or well lit room. The IPS panel is a real treat, as the LB6300 has awesome viewing angles. The motion blur can be all but eliminated if that's what you desire (and I do). And the Smart interface is intuitive. In fact, I am impressed with the contrast between the LB6300's Smart interface/layout and that of the LS5700. I think both approaches are good, but what's nice about the LB6300's Smart TV layout is that because the streaming apps appear at the bottom of the screen, one can continue watching TV without any meaningful impact on the picture before clicking onto the desired streaming service. If you're still weighing your streaming options, this is a nice feature. Finally, Sound Sync is also a very useful feature. I've paired my LB6300 with an LG soundbar and the ability to use the one remote for changing channels and raising/lowering volume on the TV and soundbar simultaneously is really great. I have only two criticisms of this TV. First while the three HDMI inputs it features are adequate, a fourth for a model in this price range would be appropriate. Second, the wide stand obviously limits placement. A central stand would be much more versatile. In the grand scheme of things, this is an excellent TV especially for the money!

                          Connects to Netflix etc easily, mounted to wall easily, has been very reliable after 1 year of use. Used product support when conncetion was lost but the problem was the modem connection, not the TV. Nice job LG.

                              Great picture (did not have to adjust any settings..used it straight from the box) Great features. The only suggestion is regarding the Magic Remote. Even though I have decreased the sensitivity to the lowest setting, it is still difficult to select items.

The Magic Remote is a must, the upgrade to this TV model to get the magic remote was a wise decision!

                                      I only downgraded the "feature" rating because I also have a LG Google TV, and those features are a bit more user friendly and the additional search choices are along the bottom of the screen were preferred over the screen center location. But, it is a great TV that I am extremely happy to have purchased! It is the only way a disabled member of our household can complete a web search easily (with voice recognition, he cannot type) (NOTE: Google TV also worked slightly better with ATT U-verse)

                                          This one is mounted on the wall in the basement, motivating our training rides through the long winter months. The picture and sound quality are fantastic and we found it at a very competitive price. Easy to network! We use it exclusively with internet streams, for example Netflix, PlayOn and Win 8.1 media service. All work well; Hulu via PlayOn is perfect. When we first got it out of the box, we had to upgrade the WebOS several times before catching up to a stable, functional version. This wasn't obvious and we very nearly returned it. Despite massive improvements in WebOS, we still find upgrades to apps such as Netflix are sometimes confusing, and navigating to PlayOn or Win 8.1 media is still not always intuitive. With a little practice it works fine. On wakeup, the tv seems determined to find a broadcast channel. Since we have no cable or antenna, this results in a snowy screen accompanied by loud and annoying static. Would strongly prefer to see a blank "no signal" page with muted sound.

                                                          This is my second LG TV and my first choice when comparing pictures from the other brands. The thin profile and silver frame is handsome to look within any decor. The control remote is designed to conform to one hand so naturally with computer on screen controls. It's obvious that the design and build quality comes from the finest in the business.

Did a lot of research and it came down to this model and Samsung. Went with the LG since it was the best fit for my space limitations. Needed to adjust some of the default picture settings and the onscreen user manual was helpful. Very happy with my choice so far.

Contrast ratio could be a bit better but I only notice if I'm analyzing instead of watching a show. Web TV is the best I've seen although it's not as fast as a computer. Overall a great value for the money.
