Summary: Sure, it's all fun and games at first. And then the stupid thing stops turning on. Ignore everyone who says they love it. Of course they love it out of the box. Out of the box it's great. Give it a year, two tops. Then it won't fully boot up. Take a quick look around. Search for "LG class action lawsuit" on Google. That'll steer you away from this PoS TV.
Great TV but had problems with remote control sensor
23 January 2010
Summary: This television is awesome. It has an intelligent sensor which corrects the picture automatically based on the room conditions. Very sleek design and very elegant touch/manual control features. Has USB, component, and HDMI access on side panel as well as on the rear of the TV. One problem I have just come across after having the TV for 1 year is that it would no longer respond to any remote control.
Summary: Excellent LCD!!! I bought this LCD last year (Nov 2008) on Amazon for $1380. I was trying to look for a good black Friday sale on a 120mhz LCD. I went and checked out so many LCDs and saw this one which I loved. Well after looking around for the sales and deals, nothing came close to Amazon's price, which included free white glove delivery and no tax, so my total price was $1380.
Summary: I have had this 47LG70 for 14 months. My friend just bought a new Samsung, LCD 52 inch, and has it hooked up to Direct TV HD. The other night he stated that his HD was not as clear as my Dish TV HD. You should have seen his face when I told him that I do not have HD. I am always getting comments on how clear the picture is. The best feature's are the Aspect Ratio; this sets the screen to the signal feed automatically or you can adjust it yourself.
This TV is great... When it works... Which is never.

Summary: Ignore all the other reviews where they say that have owned the TV for a week and love it. I've owned this TV for a year and have had plenty of time to discover what a rip off it is. Picture quality: No complaints Tuner quality: Terrible. I get better reception from a cheap external tuner. Sound Quality: The "Invisible Speaker" Buzzes constantly. If you buy this TV plan on also buying a separate sound system.
Summary: I'm really impressed with this TV so far. I've only had it for about a week so I can't speak to long term reliability, but otherwise I'm impressed. The picture quality is on par with a really nice Samsung 42" I had previously. It also has the advantage of being a few inches bigger. The menus are easy to use, and the quick menu feature really helps to switch picture modes.
Summary: The TV is as advertised. Great picture...good blacks, good color, good uniformity. Great features...120Hz, 24p "real cinema", fast response time (LG claims < 4mS), good contrast, great veiwing angle, automatic backlight and picture adjustment with ambient light sensor, multiple video modes, lots of inputs/outputs, etc., etc. I have been very happy with this and other LG products so far.
Summary: I cannot watch a movie full screen on this TV. The zoom 1 has to be used to enlarge the picture, and that cuts out part of the picture. There is such a waste of the screen when you watch a picture in 16:9 ratio. Also, the clarity of the picture is bad on some channels. I get a motion delay when things happen, like a hesitation or shadow behind it. The colors in some channels shows green/blue lines in certain areas.
Summary: I've had this TV for a little over 6 months and really enjoy it. The picture quality is fantastic in HD and the colors really pop. The black levels could be better and if you have this tv on a shorter stand, the colors tend to wash out when your vantage point is looking down on the tv (standing up). The TV really needs to be at eye level or above to avoid the washing out. Also, you NEED to calibrate this TV.
Summary: Positives: Got it about 3 months ago. VERY nice picture. No glare, can see from all angles. TV give you lots of controls. I like the serial input. Have it hooked to PC, works very well. "Intelligent" brightness is wonderful feature. Remote is fine. I paid $1450 at local store. Negatives: Their is a sound issue. Sometimes the internal speakers sound like they are being over-driven (even when volume set low). Not sure if this is TV or cable issue.
