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.
Summary: First of all, I think I underestimated the size of this TV. When the Amazon delivery guy showed up, my jaw dropped at how big the 47 inch looked in our master bedroom. That said this TV has some great features, with some calibration we were able to get some of our 720P Apple TV content to look exceptionally well.
Summary: Had to return it within a week because of a 1/2 inch blue dot that had formed in the middle of the screen. Got the second one home and the faux chrome decorative piping at the bottom of the frame peeled right off when I (carefully) removed the protective plastic. The picture is wonderful for most applications; it has excellent color and deep, rich blacks. The standard audio and the surround-sound simulation are both very good.
Summary: I recently purchased this TV from Fry's Electronics for about $1400.00 with tax. I have been waiting (for almost a year) for the Samsung 650 to drop below $2000 but finally decided to go with this LG. I could not believe the price of this television given it is 1080p and 120 hz. So far, I could not have made a better purchase. The sound is great and the picture is absolutely wonderful. I've been watching movies on Blu-ray and playing games on my Playstation 3.
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 reviewed many, many LCDs before purchasing this unit. I am a long time Sony fan but after looking at the various offerings in this size/class and comparing them to the LG there was one major thing that stood out, there was NO glare at all. I have this TV in a room where there tends to be a lot of glare and the Sony I had in the room was terrible with reflections.
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.
