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. and of course if it doenst connect there is no alternative on the tv itself to get it to function (ie no plug ins for service outside of the box). please save yourself the headache.
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. The wireless receiver is a neat idea but I already had all of the wires ran through the wall so it really didnt do me any good. I am having some issues with the reception of the wireless but I think if I move the box it would fix the problem. I would highly recommend this TV to anyone.
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. While I like the wireless feature, you should know that the set, of course, has an electrical cord in the middle of the back. It's wireless in the sense that the HDMI cord attaches to a separate media box.
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. I have cinderblock walls with firring strips and wood panelling so running hdmi cable from a dvd player, roku and a wii was a BIG dollar propect. The wireless feature solved all my problems. One issue; the edges of the tv taper to a thin point.
Summary: Bought this T.V. back in February for $999, which continues to be a steal. I'm pretty happy. Not sure I really needed the wireless technology with my current set-up. Had some issues with picture issues due to the fact that I have placed the wireless box under in the tv in a open cabinet. Might try moving it out or just directly connecting the wirless box to the tv.
Summary: Wow. where to start.... So HD Digital cable is unbelievably sharp. Especially sports. Especially the Nuggets. There is something to be said about movies or tv shows recorded before HD, like Senfield or a movie like Transformenrs. There is this thing about it at first you can't get away from and its tough to explain.
Summary: This was set up with minimal problems. I am using an outdoor antenna (rotating) and have connected the set to two DVD players, a Sony blue-ray and a Toshiba that plays DVDs from all countries. The LG is a bit selective with regard to input and since I have two TVs and needed to send the signals to either, I found that only the Octava switch boxes were capable of doing this. The LG input did not get along well with other HDMI switch boxes.
Don't buy the LG 47LH85 if you plan to use a media cabinet

Summary: I bought this TV specifically for the wireless feature. I bought a new high end media cabinet to hold all the hardware (receiver, cable box, Wii, TV transmitter etc.) only to find out that the transmitter does not work well when placed inside the cabinet. The picture flickers consistently and the signal is very low. Don't buy this TV if you want a clean environment.
Summary: Seeing that this is a relatively new product, with no prior reviews, and the first to offer wireless image technology, I was a bit hesitant at first. However, with the great specs and competitive price, I decided to go for this model. I couldn't be happier. I am not a tech wizard by any means, but I know quality when I see it. And this has it all. The image is superb!! Hi-Def cable & Blu-Ray discs look fantastic.
