    Uncle bought a LG TV. Just after a year, it died. Their reliability is poor.

    Re: News - LG Display suffers third consecutive loss

    Thats a very poor sweeping statement , you personally had a tv die which is always annoying but it happens. All my LG products still live on, TV is over 4 years old now (sold and still going!) and my gran bought a 32" LG tv and its 3 years strong now.

    Price vs performance LG destroy, their new tvs seem to keep up with the really expensive samsung displays . LG also seem to sell a crap load of tvs so just a 0.1% faliure rate could equate to a tangible amount of failures (as with samsung sony etc).

    Hopefully LG pick it up this year as i always like their stuff and we need them to push the passive 3d, its the only tech id accept as it doesnt kill my brain .

    Love my LG TV personally, would recommend them. Got just about every feature I need, just missing the PVR via a USB drive to be perfect.

    I'm surprised by that - I'd always heard that LG TV's were more reliable, but less feature-rich, than their Samsung competitors. When we were shopping for a new TV, the LG stuff we looked at had a better picture than the Samsung ones alongside. Although eventually we got a Sony Bravia (better picture sharpness and colours than anything else).

    I've got an LG monitor myself and it's shockingly poor - which is why I was fast to enter that recent Hexus monitor competition (which I didn't win). It's the first, and will be the last, LG monitor that I buy.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Bought an LG TV recently and it is great, I really do prefer the passive 3D displays, picture is amazing and the price was a steal.

    + 1 - love my LG smart TV, best media streaming service out of all TV's currently.

    Problem is that people used to buy TV's and keep them for 10 years +. many people will not keep buying a new TV just because the software is more modern, or 3D capabilities.

    TV manufactures seem to think that TV's now have a much shorter lifespan, but the fact is most people don't think like this. My parents have a LCD TV, it won't be replaced until it brakes and when it does they won't care about 3D, media streaming, online apps.

    LG and other manufactures should release less variations and less frequently. As quickly as the TV technology is changing, consumers are not buying into these changes.

    It's not about LG televisions, it's about LG panels.

    Even if it doesn't say LG on the box, there's a strong chance they made the screen.

    Re: News - LG Display suffers third consecutive loss

    i guess the main part here is that its 'LG Display' thats making the loss, LG as a whole has just made a profit of £132m instead of a loss for the last two quarters... clearly doing well somewhere to recover .
