Pros Very easy to set up. Very good looking design. Lots of features. Good overall performance - when it works. So called "audiophiles" may not think the sound is up to their standards, but for a HTIB it's audio quality is really pretty impressive.
Cons The one and only negative - and it's a big one - I have with this system is the wireless subwoofer stopped working after about 2mos. Reading on-line reviews of this product revealed that this is a pretty common problem.
Summary This system has the potential to be very good. Obviously there is/was a design flaw with the wireless transmitting circuits. LG customer service had me send the unit back (shipping pre-paid) and told me that the circuit would have to be replaced. It looks like LG wanted to rush this product to the consumer and did not do a very thorough job with Q&A. Hopefully my repaired unit will not have this problem any longer. I would still recommend this system, but be sure to ask the place you will purchase it from (on-line or otherwise) how many of these units have been returned for this particular reason.
Pros I install it in 15 min. The picture and sound quality is excellent, Great Price, Great Performance, Great Features, Great Quality, Very Easy Installation!!!!
Cons I give 4.5 stars because the wireless speakers & subwoofer work on bluetooth technology so once in a while they got deprogramed (this is a pretty common problem because there is too much interference with cell phones, tablet, etc.) and needs to reset
Summary I just called LG Electronics 1-800-243-0000 and this is the solution I got from them. Unplug the main unit from the wall, Hold the ON button for 30 seconds. Plug it back in. That should do the trick.
In overall First I investigated many home theatre systems and found this system with the most advanced for the price, its a great system and will recommend it for anyone who likes simple things
"Don't buy"on by mech1120
Pros My wife likes the pandora app it has and i did like how it was wireless
Cons I have sent it in 3 different times to get fied because it wouldn't connect to the wireless reciever
Summary I wouldn't waste your money or time with this since it obviously has a problem and everyone that has had it is having the same exact issues. I didn't even want to give it half a star.
Pros Only my subwoofer does not work
Cons Everything that has already been stated in other reviews.
Summary I saw these reviews after I purchased- prior to picking the unit up. I has hoped that the design flaw was fixed. Unit worked good for 6 months. As stated by others, the 975's subwoofer quit and would not remate / re-acquire wireless signal. LG customer service is poor at best. Obviously this is a very common problem that has been reported to LG. I thought it was illegal for companies to operate like this concerning defective / flawed products. In the development business we call this a "Latent Defect" STAY AWAY!!!
"BUYER BEWARE!!!"on by cmthorpe5
Pros Worked for 9 months
Customer Service not great
Summary We bought this system Nov. 2010. Since owning it we have had problems with the speakers not working 3 months after owning it. We sent it back for repair to LG, which took forever. Now just out of the blue our blu-ray player is not playing the dvd's. All that comes up is a "Check Disk" error message. We have not owned this product a year and yet LG customer service wants to charge us a ridiculous $69 charge for labor to fix it. This theatre system is defective and would not recommend anyone to buy this one. We are now thinking of buying another brand blu ray system and not messing with LG again.
