Summary: We have three LG televisions in our home, and have nothing bad to say about any of them. This 47inch has wonderful sound and great picture quality. When connected to a blu-Ray player and a surround system, you almost feel like your in the theater! Grab some popcorn and enjoy the show! Never buy anything on the judgment of one reviewer. As with all my reviews, the above is only my opinion or observation of an item that I own or have tested.
1 year after purchase, TV seemed to be failing; now working again

Summary: If I had reviewed this TV a month ago, it would have been a five star review. The picture quality is magnificent, commecting up peripherals is a snap, the sound is great- all in all I was extremely happy with this purchase from March 2010. Right up until 3 weeks ago when the TV started turning itself on and for no apparent reason. Sometimes the problem doesn't appear for hours, sometimes the TV turns on and off 10 times in an hour.
Summary: This was a gift for my husband. However we both get to enjoy it. There is a clear picture from any angle. We enjoy watching the Discovery and National Geo. and everything just comes alive on the screen. Beautiful!!
Summary: I've owned this for about 8 months and everything has been great. The only complaint would be the built in speaker sound is weak but I guess it is the case with all flat panel TVs. You would need an external speaker system if you want a decent sound quality but I mainly watch TV shows over the air so it is (barely) fine for me.
Summary: Ordered from Amazon.com on 7 April, was delivered on the 14th. "White-glove" installation team unpacked the TV, mounted on it's stand, connected all the cables, and took the packing material away. A+ on delivery. That being said, once the TV was in place and powered on, the left half of the screen was very gray and bright, while the right half was perfect. In addition, the left side had significant "ghosting".
Summary: This is my first LCD Tv but I have owned a Sony Vega HD for several years. This one is mounted over the fireplace and I could not ask for a better picture. Yes you get a little edge issue when the room is completely dark but that was expected due to the reviews that I had read. It is a must to turn off the Motion technolgy. Great buy!
Summary: To begin with, though I'm an ardent film collector, this LG television is my first foray into the HDTV market. It's replacing a 27" RCA CRT, a six year old television that still functions perfectly. However, after finally aquiring a PS3 Slim and attempting to get into gaming, I found my poor CRT was simply out of its league.
LG TV should be a top consideration for LCD shoppers

Summary: I got this TV for my bedroom, mainly because I got the LG 55LH40 55- Inch 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV, Gloss Black for the living room, and it was awesome. Both TVs have a beautiful picture, and the sound is fine (to me) without attaching a surround sound system. I think I'm going with LG products on TV's and Blu-ray players for the foreseeable future, as the quality appears to excellent. Hopefully, they won't become like Sony and after many years let everything go to pot.
Summary: I did see some reviews that mentioned a lip synch issue (sound and picture not perfectly synched), but they were so few that I took a chance. THIS TV DOES HAVE A LIP SYNCH ISSUE. The difference between the picture and sound went from barely noticable to maybe .25 second delay of the sound. I hooked my Comcast cable box up to my home receiver via an optical audio cable and didn't have the issue when listening through my home theater system.
