LG 43LF5400 keep shopping-look elsewhere

LG Electronics 43LF5400 43-Inch 1080p LED TV (2015 Model)
LG Electronics 43LF5400 43-Inch 1080p LED TV (2015 Model)

Pros: Low energy usage, measured at >35 watts at maximum brightness and >28 watts at normal viewing brightness. Very light weight, >25 lbs. Five inputs:HDMI1, HDMI2, HDTV coax, USB, and component A/V.

Cons: NO AUDIO OUTPUTS, ZERO, NONE. The screen is too dark, even with the brightness adjusted to it's fullest and in max energy mode. The screen is too glossy to be used in a room with a lot of windows. The feet are too wide for use on some TV stands. Why does the red power light only stay on when the TV is shut off. When you turn off a TV, all lights, including power light, should be switched off. HDMI 1 cable connection doesn't allow the TV to be flush mounted to the wall. And did I mention, no audio outputs. 5 Audio/Video inputs and NOT ONE SINGLE AUDIO OUTPUT!

Overall Review: I like this TV, but could have done much better. It's an okay picture, but even after playing with the color settings for days, it still looks too dim, and I can't remove a green tint to the overall picture. And I bought this LG TV to go with my LG sound bar, both brand new units from Dell, both manufactured by the SAME company, LG. Guess what? This TV has NO optical outputs for Dolby Digital sound from my TV. Matter of fact, it has NO audio outputs at all. Of course, this is my fault, because I bought the cheapest, largest TV I could afford and didn't check compatibility. But one cannot connect their LG sound bar to their LG TV? We're almost 15 full years into the millennium, and you make two products that clearly go hand in hand, and aren't capable of working together. Come on LG, let's get it together!
