Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Investment This TV was a good investment for the entire family. The picture quality is great for the price and the size makes it suitable for all viewing. April 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extremely satisfied with this tv bought this TV on black Friday last year and I have had no problems at all with it, the only thing that should be approved on is the fact that it only has 2 hdmi slots on the TV, I have to connect everything through my home theater receiver, BUT THIS IS A GREAT TV FOR THE PRICE April 5, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by color processing please come out with a firmware the only way to circumvent this issue (which I guess would involve turning off the color processing this TV is very determined to do) is to set the input resolution of your device to 1366x768. That is the highest resolution setting you can use that doesn't trigger what I'm going to refer to as "pine tree mode". I have seen this on several units of the same model. Of course I can't test the resolution thing in a store but I assume other units would respond the same way and the green color reproduction flaw is readily apparent once you notice it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Picture quality Hi all, I bought this tv last week and seeing some concern with picture quality and colors. Can some one provide me some details on what settings would improve quality? I show some review has mentioned that some settings needs to be tweak. December 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by good picture after some tweaking Bought this as a replacement for my 42 in LG, the picture was great right out of the box however, after going threw all the video settings and tweaks, the picture is great now, and i love the picture have my Xbox One hooked up and everything is just amazing November 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great TV at a Nice Price Color on my set appears perfect at its defaults. Picture is crystal clear, sound is very good and with the bezel as thin as it is the picture appears to be floating in the air. Installed on a stand myself as it only weights 33 lbs. or so. 2 HDMI inputs are plenty for me as I run everything through my receiver first using its 1 HDMI output to the TV. Couldn't be happier with my purchase! November 19, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Green parts of image hugely oversatuated. This television could be an absolute steal for the price, if it weren't for one thing: The color reproduction. Try and try you might but this TV at any color, brightness, contrast, or any other setting you could possibly tweak, turns anything green or yellow into the same shade of pine-tree green. The only way to circumvent this issue (which I guess would involve turning off the color processing this TV is very determined to do) is to set the input resolution of your device to 1366x768. That is the highest resolution setting you can use that doesn't trigger what I'm going to refer to as "pine tree mode". I have seen this on several units of the same model. Of course I can't test the resolution thing in a store but I assume other units would respond the same way and the green color reproduction flaw is readily apparent once you notice it. It seems very sad to have to use a lower resolution to get around a design flaw like this. It is a very interesting issue, because you can put up any color calibration image you wish, and you will easily be able to get a basic balance of red, green, blue, and the various shades of gray. You'll think you've got it fairly decent, you'll switch back to whatever source image or video you first noticed the green problem on, and boom, everything is the same shade of green again. Grass that is fairly yellow when viewed on at the 1366x768 resolution turns absolutely surreal green at 720P, 1080i or 1080p, and most other resolutions. You could describe it as the television thinking green and yellow are one and the same at standard HDTV resolutions. Again, to be clear, this issue doesn't occur at the 1366x768 resolution, so I am certain it is an image processing issue with the television. Same source video put into the TV from three different devices at 1080P gets the green overdose treatment. Same video at 1366x768 from two of the devices looks normal, and the same source video looks normal on any laptop, tablet, or other monitor I view it on. It IS the television doing this. Thankfully my computer and my video game system both offer resolution options, but a streaming device I have doesn't, which renders it almost unusable to me with this television. As a consumer, you should be aware of the issue with this model. You shouldn't expect state of the art picture quality on a 50" LED this cheaply priced. You SHOULD however not expect every outdoor scene in a TV show, movie, or video game to have the exact same color green. It's ridiculous, this is clearly a software issue that needs to be addressed with a firmware update. Fix it, and this TV will be unbeatable for the price. July 2, 2014
