Summary: I have owned the 47LE5400 LG led tv for just over a year. Beside a slow start up time and having to view the LG logo it was ok. That is until I went away for a week and upon returning found that my TV had picture and no sound. Having a TV set that is less that 2 years old and it breaks does me no good at all. I had turned off the serge protector so there was no electricity going to the unit. So, there was no power surge.
Summary: Purchased the 47LE5400 for Christmas for our family room. Got great delivery from Amazon (Pilot Delivery). TV worked great for 2 weeks then on my Day off I set up a NetFlix acct got the movie ready to play, went to the rest room, came back and pressed play and the the TV screen went Black. I cannot see anything, but I can hear sound and change TV channels.
Summary: This is my very first HD TV. I've replaced my 10 year old Panasonic (CRT) cause it was getting a little blurry. From the second I turned it on, I was like OMG! The picture is so incredible! The base seems a little flimsy, but I'm going to put it on a wall mount in a few days. It's got plenty of HDMI and USB inputs. Since I don't know much about HDTVs I won't go into any details other than the picture is absolutely amazing.
Summary: This TV is not capable of producing the color black - except in relation to the other colors. When the picture blacks out it's just a medium grey, and throws enough ambient light around the front of the room to read a book. I have adjusted the levels many times, with the backlight and brightness set very low. Either this particular unit is broken or it is meant solely for watching in very brightly lit room. The edge of the picture was also clipped off on the left.
