Summary: I have been using this TV for the past three years and have never had a single issue. I use it for Streaming, Movies, Video Games and anything else media related. At $499 when I first bought it, it was an amazing deal. I couldn't ask for a better TV for the price. It has ample hookups for various media types, the picture looks good and it looks OK. I would say that compared to the other TVs that you see nowadays, it is a bit clunky.
Summary: I really, really hesitated buying such a big ticket item online from Amazon. However my experience was perfect (scheduled delivery came on time, great delivery staff brought it up my 3-floor walk up). The TV has been perfect and was just as described, I've never had a problem with it. Very happy and would buy again from Amazon and LG.
Summary: I ordered this for my parents and they love it. It was their first HD TV and they will never be without again - have bought another since then. I personally prefer plasma HD TVs, but I have been favorably impressed by the quality of the picture on this set.
Summary: My husband must have been one of the last dinosaurs to approve the purchase of a new HDTV. The old cathode ray tube worked just fine! But once this was in the house, he couldn't stop exclaiming about the quality of the picture - both with regular programming, and with sports. He was converted, and converted well.
Excerpt: We bought the 47" LD520 this thanksgiving, and since the only difference is screen size, i take the liberty to review the 42" LD520. First off, teh TV was quick and easy to install and set-up- it took about 10 minutes from box to tv-stand- make sure you have two people doing the job, as the TV is bulky even though it is light. The stand looks plasticky but has so far given no problems in performance.
Excerpt: My husband have had one other HDTV in a 42in by a "No name" brand because it was cheaper at the time and it fit our budget! We immediately realized our mistake because the TV was horrible on so many levels! About a year later we found a fabulous deal on this TV for the same price (maybe cheaper) and my husband asked if we could buy it! I didn't use our old TV as much as he did, but even I was frustrated with it so I said to go for it.
Excerpt: Our old tube TV literally died on us on the day of my son's birthday party. We had been talking about a new TV but had done little research. So when we stared looking we were overwhelmed with the options. We are your basic middle income family so we wanted a TV that would give us a good picture, but not cost us more than a paycheck! This is the perfect TV for that. Some of the highlights: Cost. Was a great middle of the road priced TV for the size we wanted. Name brand.
Excerpt: We actually bought LG's 5300. We have waited awhile to jump on the flat panel tv bandwagon and are glad that we did. By waiting, the price came down a little, and the technology only gets better. We thought we could get by with the 37 inch size, but the 42 inch looked so much better in our entertainment space that we decided to go with it. We really like how clear the images are. We really like the brightness of the picture.
