Full of fantastic features A Great looking tv unit with a fantastic picture quality and busting with great features. The 3D is amazing and the gaming mode is brilliant. easy to use and the magic control is a brilliant feature as you can control your sky/virgin or feeview box. great picture and sound. over all a brilliant unit. 05 December 2014
Excellent tv This is the second 3d smart TV I have purchased from John Lewis, the first being the LG 690. Both TVs are brilliant but the 740 is even better than the 690. Picture and sound are fantastic in both 3d and hd. Smart features are plentiful and you can even use it to surf the Internet. There is a large speaker at the rear of the TV to supplement the two stereo speakers so loudness is not a problem. I would recommend this tv . 01 October 2014
Brilliant TV No issues, no problems, just one absolutely brilliant TV which does everything that I had expected and does it well. It is a thing of beauty, which most TV'S aren't and after several months I still can't help admiring it. Watching a Youtube clip today full screen, looking like HD quality with no buffering, made me appreciate just how good this TV is, and that was with a wireless connection, so no cables. It looks great and it sounds great. The extra subwoofer speaker in the back transforms the sound and can go very loud with no distortion, so no need for a sound bar. There are more than enough connections, and I've used most of them without issue. Viewing a lifetimes photos back from a hard drive via one of the usb connections in high definition has transformed the way I view my pictures, and the clear edge to edge picture frame design of this TV just adds to the pleasure. It has BBC player and 5 on demand but still no ITV player, but hopefully that will come later. I've seen nothing to beat this TV and I love it. Oh and the 3D works perfectly, but really is just the cherry on a very nice cake. 26 April 2014
Great value TV The picture quality and 3D quality is great, however the only downside is the sotfware. It is sometimes slow to use the SMART features and takes a while to type in usernames and passwords using the control. Other than that, excellent TV, I would highly reccommend. 12 May 2014

Quality product with easy to use Smart features I cannot praise this product enough. Wonderful Smart features which are so easy to access with the remote device. Beautiful picture, makes watching wildlife programmes and films amazing. The 3D effect is an additional wonderful facility and the overall chique appearance of this television is superb. 08 March 2014
WHAT A STUNNER! This is the second tv by LG that l have owned (the previous having given faithful service for ten years) and am l glad l stuck with the brand. The people in LG's R&D have not been resting on their laurels, for everything about this tv is superb, from the build quality to the room filling sound and vibrant picture display. Speed of operation is fantastic and Internet browsing is a joy. This 3D smart tv has a plethora of features, more than enough to keep any techi happy for a long time to come. l'm once again, a truly happy LG customer. 10/10 LG, well done! 07 March 2014
