WARRANTY
Limited Warranty 1 Year Parts & Labor

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

3 months old and *almost no problems

Submitted by TJ_in_Oregon - 12/20/2020

I would give this TV a 5-star rating but a few of the buttons on the remote stopped working after about 85 days. As we know remotes are crucial to the TV to operate. Ive contacted LG customer support and they told me they would send me a new remote but Im still waiting. Its been over a week now of waiting. Honestly the review could go up or down depending how long it takes to get a new remote. As for picture quality and access the Netflix/Prime etc... it is great. Synched up well with my JBL soundbar.

great picture

Submitted by smarttan - 12/11/2020

I really love my LG NanoCell TV 55 The picture is the best I have ever seen. The only drawback I can see is when you turn it on it defaults to TV channels that would come from cable service that I do not have and it is static and very loud.

Great picture but remote needs improvement

Submitted by JKiminLACALGuser - 12/11/2020

I bought this TV to upgrade from a previous LG 46 TV and the features are similar except for a better picture. Main issues Ive had are with the glitchy remote the cursor is a bit too sensitive and I wish it retained the Live TV button for OTA channels my old LG TV remote had because it now takes longer to switch from streaming to OTA. The Google Assistant addon also doesnt seem to work that well. Rounded up to 5 since still happy with the picture quality and features e.g. Bluetooth option for quiet watching.

Beautiful picture

Submitted by Tootall95 - 12/11/2020

The picture quality is very good almost that of my QLED that I paid much more for. The sound is excellent best of any tvs Ive had. My one problem is between it and my Sparklite cable box. Some of the time when the tv is turned on it comes up a pink screen only and cable box must be rebooted to get back cable picture.

Love love love this tv

Submitted by mudads - 9/25/2019

Bought this to upgrade 4k that I had. I thought I had it good before. I was wrong. Everything just pops on this tv. It looks unreal. I bought it to play games in which is what I primarily do with my tv. My Xbox One X and PS 4 Pro are no longer held back by my old sub par tv.
