" ...  The sound is actually pretty good! ... I was worried we'd need to get a sound bar to be comparable to the other tv sound set up we had in the other room.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Sound quality is fine for watching broadcast television but some users will want to add a sound bar to enhance the range of the speakers.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I don't know about the sound because I hooked up my sound bar and subwoofer but before I did, I briefly caught a sample of the sound quality and it seemed fine. ... I just prefer my subwoofer.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Google home mini works great except turning it "on" but not that important because the integration is so good that you can tell your TV to tell google home to change things like thermostat temperature or lights (if connected) and you can tell google home to control TV volme/chanel/app/input.  ...  "

" ...  Since its a contact in the center back of the screen rather than on the 2 ends to offer best support if you don't tighten the screws right up you can cause yourself a bit of wobble.  ...  "

comment
" ...  The side angle viewing of this LG is pretty good compared to most LED, but plasmas are awesome from the side like an old tube TV or the new OLED TVs. ... My neighbor's 65" OLED is off the charts.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Trim and slim screen very light weight for installation!  ...  "
comment
