Product information

Enjoy the high contrast, fast refresh viewing of plasma with the connectedness of smart TV. LG’s PH660V also breaks new ground with its Pentouch TV technology that allows you scribble, draw and even make sophisticated presentations right on the screen (separate LG MagicPen required). Catch up TV services mean that your favourite TV programmes are always within reach, while a world of apps keeps you entertained and in the loop.

Key benefits:

  • Enjoy Full HD 1080p at a crisp 600Hz refresh rate. Along with immersive Active 3D playback and 2D to 3D conversion you’ll never have to compromise on image quality (please note that 3D glasses are available separately).

  • LG’s Smart Hub feature breaks the smart experience down to an intuitive and customisable home screen that easier to navigate without losing out on features.

  • With LG’s Magic Remote (available separately), voice and gesture control is simple. The onboard wheel makes navigation and browsing as easy as on your computer, while handy gestures are great as shortcuts. Speaking to the remote even activates a search function.

  • 3D Wizards makes customising the 3D viewing experience straightforward with a range of intensity options and simple upscaling.

Sound Bars

With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller - choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Sound bars add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.

Great buy This TV is brilliant and great value for money. Great picture quality, easy to use and set up, smart capability is easy and can be controlled by my samsung phone so no need for a smart remote. Very pleased with the product and John Lewis for their customer service and delivery. 01 January 2014
Lacks 40d, itv player and Demand5 LG make nice tellies (I bought the last generation of this model, the 50PM670T for the lounge as well as a 42LM670T for the bedroom), and while I like most things about the TV, I would never have bought it if I had known it does not have 4od, itvplayer and Demand5. These are needed to watch archived content from Channel 4, ITV and Channel 5. It is not even possible to add these after purchase. Apparently LG was never able to reach a deal with these channels to include them. A big part of the reason most people buy a Smart TV is to view content on a time-shift basis - that is when you want, not only when it is aired. The only British offering on LG TVs is the BBC iPlayer (which every TV manufacturer offers). I know that Samsung has the ones LG is missing. I'm not aware of any others, though Panasonic is a possibility. If I had known this before I bought two LG Smart TVs, I'd have chosen Samsung instead. Now I have to hook a computer up my TV to get these, which makes it silly to have spent all the extra money on a Smart TV when a plain old TV plus computer would have accomplished the same thing. 16 September 2013
Excellent deal but smart hub problems This is an excellent buy at this price and I have no complaints about the TV picture quality, sound, setup or available features. However the smart hub has some annoying hiccups. As another reviewer noted, iPlayer currently isn't working. If a fix is coming soon, great, if not, this is a deal breaker for me. Also, there are problems with Lovefilm which I use a lot. If you rewind or fast forward a film and then resume it at normal speed, the picture suddenly turns dim and the little swirling circle widget remains visible. This doesn't go away unless you stop the film and resume it. Also, if you pause a film and then resume it later, it plays for about a minute with no problem but it will all of a sudden freeze. Again, to remedy the problem you need to stop it altogether and then resume it. Youtube - the first video I tried to watch played for about a minute then the whole TV froze. I had to restart it to get it going again. I didn't bother trying anymore after that. One final gripe is the remote control. The navigation buttons are on a circle surrounding an enter button in the middle. However the 'up' button is right below the smart hub button and it's far to easy to press the smart button when you mean to press up. What this means is whatever you were trying to do at the time goes out the window because the smart hub screen will appear. No itvplayer or 4oD either, which I was kind of expecting and not too bothered about, but all this tells me LG still aren't on par with Samsung in this area. These might seem like minor issues but the smart functionality is one of the main things I use on these devices, and I went for the LG because it gets a lot of praise from the critics. I have to say I prefer Samsung's however (I have a Samsung blu-ray player with smart hub) and it works perfectly. Hopefully these issues will be fixed soon, if not this is going back. 19 June 2013
Fantastic Quality & unbeatable price FREESAT BUILT-IN AS WELL!!! This is a fantastic TV at an unbeatable price. No other sellers get anywhere near the deal when you include the 5 year warranty. Where do I start? Well, the first thing to say is that despite the John Lewis spec saying that this TV doesn't have FreeSat Built in, I can confirm THAT IS DOES! It has a Sat Tuner into which finds all the channels and in glorious HD as well. I plugged the TV into my LAN as Home and it immidiately founf my 3TB NAS drive and plays ALL my .AVI, .MP4, .MKV files without and issues and the browsing of them is very quick. The 3D picture is stunning using 3D from Sky & 3D from Blu Ray, I used a pair of active 3D glasses from a Samsung TV I had and they work fine, I reckon any compatible 3D active glasses will work fine. The Freeview HD channels look really good, it has a nice touch in that when it finds DVB signals from different transmitters, say Sandy Heath & Crystal Palace (like mine) you can choose which tranmitter to prioritise. The 24Hz 1080p output from my Blu-ray player is stunning, the sound quality is very good as well, far better than I had expected. The only thing thats not working at the moment is the BBC iplayer & sports App, when you try and use them the screen just says "not compatible with your device and asks if I'm using android!!! I contacted LG, they're aware of this and are working on a software fix, I suspect it will be available very soon. Not a problem for me as I have other ways of using OD services. 19 June 2013
Stunning Picture This LG tv is a cracker. Excellent service, as ever, from John Lewis. We have it connected to a set top box, a Bluray player and surround sound audio system. The LG provides an amazing picture. We have yet to try 3D but even HD TV has a realism and depth that we haven't seen before. The TV is very thin and light even though it is a plasma. It replaced a 42 inch 5 years old LCD tv. Even though the screen size of the LG is 50 inches the size difference is not that great as the LG has such a narrow bezel and it is half as deep as the old TV. All the family love it. Looking forward to trying a 3D movie but need to get some glasses. The only downside is that it needs a WiFi dongle for wireless network access (it is not built-in) which is not clear in the advert. 17 May 2013
