This review is from: LG 55" Class (54.6" Diagonal) 1080p 60Hz LED TV - 55LN5200 (LG recertified Grade A)
Pros: Big Screen, narrow black bezel, bright clear picture, low price
Cons: Speakers are so bad it sounds worse that one my little 19" TV's. I'm not sure if there is something wrong with them or that the way they were designed, but they both appear to be working. Very mid-rangey and boxy, like they are buried somewhere deep in the TV facing backwards (which they probably are). The picture appears to be colder and more smeary. I know a lot about TV settings and I've played with all the brightness, contrast, color, etc. settings and I've gotten it to warm up some, but both of my other two 42" LG TV's appear to be warmer and higher definition. It may just be the jump in size and stretching the picture more and the difference between LED and LCDs.
Other Thoughts: Before you say that I should not care about the speakers on a TV like this, consider the following. I have it hooked up via Optical to my Yamaha surround sound system, complete with Energy Sub-woofer, but my wife does not always want to turn on and operate all that gear when she wants to watch some casual TV. Similarly if I am watching late at night when she is in bed, I don't need the sub waking her up. A TV of this size and quality (LG) should come with a minimum standard speaker set, similar or at least equal to the smaller sets I own. These actually make it difficult to watch because they sound so bad. Just FYI. For what I paid for it, I cannot complain, but I expected a minimum level of quality from LG and they failed on this one in my opinion.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: Dead drive after light use and 2 years of service. 180 day limited warranty on a refurbished unit (who buys a refurbished hard drive - right?). Chalk it up to experience.
Other Thoughts: Started acting up a couple months ago during Window10 upgrade, which was very confusing since I thought it was a Windows issue, but it finally died completely the other day. I tested it on 2 separate computers using the Window Drive Management console. I won't be buying OCZ again. My Kingston and Samsung SSD's are still working flawlessly.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Speed, stability of connection, range, functionality, ease of use/configuration. 2 USB ports for common file/media access or common Printer access. Big antennas. Cool looking.
Other Thoughts: I have never used TP-Link wireless products before but after reading the positive reviews for the Archer C5 I bought the Archer C7. I am so impressed that I'd like to buy one for all my friends. Although I have not conducted any official tests for speed, I have 4 wireless IP cameras around the house and in my detached garage. This thing pops up the picture for these super fast all while supporting multiple computers, phones, tablets and my big screen TV's through media boxes. I have several devices hooked up at 5G and they operate flawlessly without disconnecting. Hulu Plus comes in all the way across my house up one floor from the basement where my Router is located and never skips a beat. I would highly recommend this device to anyone who wants to use the 5G band. Just make sure you buy good adapters to receive the signal. I use Rosewill and ASUS which work very well. The USB ports are awesome for file/media/Printer access from any computer in the house at any time (unlike other computers which have to be turned on to access). BUY IT!! You will be impressed just like me.READ FULL REVIEW
