Started out fine but it's broken now, $1500 for 3 years????

Summary: We were pretty stoked on the quality of the image, watching dvds is great, and all the HD cable channels too. But a couple of months ago, when we'd turn the TV on, there would be this loud "POP!", or perhaps more like a loud crack, like a bulb or something was overheating or something and it would shut off, and the screen would go black.
Summary: If you are considering this TV, it means you are probably looking for the best bang for the buck. I shopped months before making my decision and, although my original choice was not available, this LG has been GREAT. These are the high points: Great Price Great system options with all of the possible connections It has a backlight control (for the wierdos who need "pure blacks") 1080p looks great on it (I use Comcast Cable and Sony PS3 Blue Ray) Speakers work good It...
Summary: Gave this TV four stars but a high four stars after only having the set for a few days. Have NOT hooked up a Bluray player and to my understanding so far, that's the only source where you will CURRENTLY realize 1080p resolution. My cable box delivers 1080i and there may not be much of a difference but from what I've seen in the electronics stores, it does make a difference.
Summary: A word of caution to those considering to buy this television (which I do recommend, it is a great TV at a great price), the wall mount suggested by amazon.com (Peerless ST650P Tilting Wall Mount for 32" to 50" Flat Panel Displays) IS NOT COMPATIBLE with this particular TV.
Summary: TV features are decent, great viewing angle, but apparently LG components are cheaply made. After only 4 years, the TV now takes 15 to 30 minutes to turn on. When I contacted the company they recommended a reboot, and when that did not work and I had to contact them again, they never replied. Apparently the problem is in the capacitors - I when I google this TV an ad for repair parts pop up which addresses this problem.
Summary: I just hooked this tv to HDTV cable and it is WOW!!!. I have been researching on LCD for about 3 months now and was all set to spend about 3 k for the 'S' brands before I saw this one which gave me equaly great product for half the cost. Visit local store and check out this one before buying anything else in this size.
Summary: Overall, this TV is great; offering 3 HDMI ports, a RGB VHS port, 2 component video ports, etc., it's clearly not lacking. I'll only delve into what I *don't* like about this TV. 1) Aside from a component and S-VHS port on the side of the TV, everything's on the back. If you are using the TV on a table, this wouldn't be a problem.
A 2-3 Year T.V. for $1500. Pass, find a different brand

Summary: When I purchased this T.V. 2.5 years ago, it was a decent offering. 60Hz (now 120, or 240Hz is standard). Its blacks were not great, but it was a decent set for $1500. However, it just is not built to last, and this LG47LC7DF (and other LG 47 inch models) have been PLAGUED with reliability problems in the Digital Main Board, and in the power suppy boards. Generally, the capacitors on the boards go, and they seem to do it around 2 years.
Summary: I paid $1499 for this TV and have had it for about a week now. I am very satisfied using it with FIOS HD. The Motorola box provides a 1080i signal and HD channels and programming such as "Planet Earth" are stunning. I was looking for a good TV for a modest apartment and no crazy HD Theater setup...this TV fits the bill. If you want to get picky about black colors, wall mounting, shadowing on gaming this review is not for you.
Summary: I've had this TV for a couple weeks now, so although I cannot comment on the reliability of this TV, I can comment on its performance. When I was shopping for an HDTV, this was the least expensive HDTV that I could find in the 45"-49" size that would accept 1080p over VGA and component inputs (not common) in addition to HDMI. This included plasma TVs. Overall, the TV is very good in the $1500 price range.
