Overall good, but it has issues

Newell, Newegg
14 April 2013
  • Summary: My media box was DOA and I contacted LG support. They sent out a technician and he messed around in the service menu trying to get it to work, but agreed that the wireless media box was dead (the wireless part was, the unit functions, but with HDMI).
  • Pros: Great picture Good sound Easy menu navigation Converts analog to digital (unlike my Onkyo)
  • Cons: Media box was DOA (read below) Worried that it will die the day after the warranty expires

Junk

Chad P., Newegg
12 July 2012
  • Summary: I will never buy another LG television after experiencing their unwillingness to work with a customer. The fact that they stop manufacturing or servicing a part that is less than 2 years old is ridiculous.
  • Pros: Good picture
  • Cons: Wireless media box fried (audibly) after 2 years. Without the media box, the TV has one HDMI input - useless if you want to watch anything but one device (which now requires HDMI). Don't think about buying a replacement. The ASW1000 unit is no longer made by LG and they make no effort besides ref...

Horrible

S. Vittitow "sunvintage", Amazon
12 December 2011
  • Summary: Do NOT buy this discontinued product. had ours for a bit over a year, so of course the one year warranty is expired. spent half of today on the phone with multiple lg people trying to sell me an extended warranty. tv has been nothing but a problem, connecting to the media box is difficult.

Great while it lasted

Larry J., Newegg
15 September 2011
  • Summary: Nice tv when it worked. I don't know why there aren't more wireless units like this one.
  • Pros: Great picture. Wireless is excellent. 5.1 sound output.
  • Cons: Fan in media unit runs even when off. Is irritating because it is in the bedroom. Flicking switch off on back will turn it completely off. Screen failed after 15 months. Just out of warranty.

  • Summary: I've had this tv for over a year now and it works just as advertised. Great wireless picture, but it must have a clear shot from box to screen! I wanted a clean install above a fireplace.

Happy customer, with a few caveats

Hap E. Shopper, Amazon
31 December 2010
  • Summary: I've had my LG 47LH85 for six months, and I'm thrilled with the picture quality. Friends have commented how much sharper and clearer is my picture than their more expensive set. Set up was easy, too.

Great TV

venkatesh s., Newegg
21 December 2010
  • Summary: overall great product. if you are planning to purchase a tv less than 50' then just go for this and you won't regret. Newegg service is great so far.
  • Pros: I am not a TV guru but can identify the clarity. This is one of the greatest TV we have ever used. Stunning picture quality. We like the USB port which plays most of the audio/video formats including .mkv files. Haven't tried for pictures yet. Good to have the media box and no cable lying on the ...
  • Cons: 2 minor things to note as media box doesn't pickup signal very well sometimes and the audio quality isn't that great as advertised/expected.

Great Picture

E. Sun, Amazon
15 December 2010
  • Summary: I bought this TV as a Black Friday deal for $599. The picture quality is amazing compared to my 1080P 60" 600hz Plasma I have in the living room. The sound quality is just ok in my book.

Amazing TV for a (usually) amazing price

Kevin Y., Newegg
25 November 2010
  • Summary: Got this TV on sale for 900, but it's a steal at twice that price. I definitely recommend it as it's an amazing TV. Be warned that 120 Hz TV (the difference is noticeable even on non HD channels) and movies takes a little getting used to, but just makes Blu Ray movies and current generation games...
  • Pros: Beautiful, clear HD picture 120 Hz makes everything very smooth Wireless keeps cords looking better, offers more options for your set up. Sound is great, I've never had to turn it up beyond half the max volume TON of inputs. PS3, 360, PC, Wii, PS1, DVD player all attached and I still have a ton o...
  • Cons: Takes about 30 seconds to turn on. It takes about 10 to actually turn on, and then about 20 to connect to the Media Box. Kind of annoying, but not unbearable. Wish it had more options for input labeling. An onscreen keyboard for custom labeling would be nice, but either way it's not terribly help...
