Excellent TV for the price
by Chethan S on 2014-09-05
We actually had a 21" Thomson CRT TV from last 16yrs, which was working well though. However had to change to an LED TV. (Smart & 3D dint seem a real need for me)
With this, I was looking for an LED TV, Full HD b/w 39" - 42" in about 35k - 45k range. I had planned to buy Philips 39" TV for size v/s cost benefit, but it went out of stock on Flipkart.
It was then I looked at LG 42" LB5510 & LB5610 ... I decided on LB5510; as LB5610 was not available on Flipkart in Bangalore.
> It has the same IPS panel seen across all LG TV's which I hear is best/decent enough.
> Awesome viewing experience of full HD LED with 720p & 1080p content.. (Unlike other LED TV's watching 480p contents from non-HD TV channels is not so impressive)
> The TV speakers seemed good to me. I have read about several audio issues in LED TV's, don't know if people are comparing to Bose :-) .... But in this TV the audio was good even with just 15% volume up.
> It has Audio Out with Headphone jack ... I could plug my 2.1 creative speakers to this ... Decent sound for watching movies.
> The USB input could directly read my 1 TB HDD.... This was awesome for me :-)
> There are two HDMI ports... Sufficient for now.
> The menu & settings functions in remote are quite simple to use; helpful for my parents to handle.
Coming to price:
I had checked the same TV in stores... The price on Flipkart was 7k less.
In addition I got 4k less on exchange of my old CRT TV.
Good to go for this, if you are not looking for 3D or Smart TV... However a Smart TV can be made out of this with a Android box for 4k.
Product is Ok, but LG service is worst
by Ashutosh on 2014-09-06
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.

quite happy with this TV used for a month, best you can get in this range
great picture quality
easy to configure picture settings
can play movies from 1TB HDD
power save mode
sound output only 10W.
I bought a simple 5.1 speaker system to counter the sound output. better to pay 3k for a basic home theater system rather than going for the other LG version with 20W sound.

This product is really worth the money. Picture quality is good. Sound is sufficient for normal use, but if you're looking for great sound , this is not a TV to go for.
As usual, Flipkart rocks with it's discounts and delivery schedule.With Standard shipping itself I got this TV delivered within 24 Hrs.
Only problem I had was dealing with LG service reps. They were arrogant and didn't have patience to explain the features. Over this, he demanded for Rs 200 as Fuel allowance, initially I denied to pay, but ended up paying 100 to them. I will also complain about this in LG grievance portal.
Good TV , but poor Audio quality!!!!
by Anirban Bhattacharya on 2014-12-06
I bought this product two months back. The picture quality is good. Avobe all TV seems to be fine. But the audio quality is poor. I need to increase the adudio level to even 60 unit to hear it cleanly. Still sharpness was not there.
I had to buy an external speaker to make it better now.
I need to talk to the LG customer service for the same. I got some troubleshooting on line , but afraid if the sound quality detoriates more.
Not ware how much LG support can help. Am ok with external speaker now.
Recomend you to test the sound quality before purchasing.

Viewing angle in this tv is pathetic not worth to buy. I bought on 13-08-14 and i regret on my decision to by this tv

First things first. Flipkart delivery was on time and even the installation team was also on time. Both Flipkart and installation team kept following us until the job is done. Good job.
TV is worth for it money.It has good picture quality.
If it is connected to external speaker, music is awesome.
Only drawback is it connects to external speaker via optical cable even when HDMI slot is available.
Over all a good product.

We bought this LED 42 inch Full HD TV two years back (Aug 2014) and seems good.But Suddenly After completing the warrently period, some light spots appeared on the screen. We registered a complaint in lg customer forum and one of the technician came and said there is a issue with led panel, Need to replace it and it costs 21,000. We are surprised we bought this TV on Rs.44918 and only after two years we need to pay 21,000 for led panel repair. Please note we used additional stabilizer also for voltage stabilization. Then how this happens... They made their product in this way. Suddenly after completing the warrently period, problems arise and we need to pay a huge amount for its repair... This is truely cheating !!!

I purchased this product on April 19th(from another site), seems to be very normal, I didnt observe the Full HD performance in this TV, sound of the TV is very less, after 10 days I saw a colorfull line in the middle of the screen and so i returned the TV on April 29th. Then I purchased LG 40UB800T 101.6 cm UHD from Flipkart which is so good so far
Excellent picture quality
by Pankaj Anand on 2015-04-30
Excellent picture quality, especially HD channels or HD videos. Definitely need external home theater system to enjoy music and movies. Note that this is not a Smart TV but you do not need smart features if you have PS3 or Chromecast. Good value for money!
