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

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. 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.

First time Ive not loved an LG product

CD05 3/15/2022

From day one this sound bar has been nothing but trouble. At first the sub woofer wouldnt work and its moved to bass in the sound bar dropping at random points. The sound bar has spent more time at the warranty office getting fixed than it has been in our home. Every time we get it back there seems to be another issue and because it has spent so much time at the warranty office we missed our window to return it and get a refund. This sound bar has been an absolute headache to deal with.

Sound Bar Sensor Horrible

Small Couch Potato 3/6/2022

Great sounding device lacks connectivity when trying to control volumes from a lot of different angles which makes it very inconvenient and frustrating when relaxing. Always a light indicator would be beneficial to see if your remote is functioning.

no bass

rtoh 1/31/2022

bought for a new tv setup still love my lg sj4y and thought this would be at least as good I get more bass walking down the stairs than this thing offers. I think the main speaker bar may be ok but it is a serious disappointment that this newer version is so subpar. Also has problems playing certain audio outputs through ARC. very disappointed - before this I was totally in on LG
