Summary: We bought this TV over 2 years ago and it's been a great addition to our home. The 47" is a great size for our apartment living room where space is at a premium. The quality of the blacks, and the features that the Television provides was exactly what we needed. The only issue I have with this or any flat-screen television is how the speakers are positioned. The design is for the speakers to face back toward the wall so that they can increase the depth of sound..
Summary: Works fine for close to two years after which the backlighting gone bad. Some time it will brigthen the top right and left such that thos areas will be good but all other places will be bad. If I power cycle the TV it will work fine but return often. Bad for $1900 TV.
Summary: This is a great tv very easy to hook up. IT does everything for you all you need to do is push the button on the remote & if you miss up you can start over no problems. Picture is GREAT! You have more control over the picture than an every day Joe needs. The sound is not what you would expect from a tv this big. You really got to crank it up. To really enjoy (if you watch sports or movies) a sound system. This is the only reason why I did not rate this tv with 5 stars.
Summary: This is a great TV. It's large. It's 240Hz for smooth motion. The quality of the color is excellent when you select the THX picture setting. The menu is simple for things like channel selection, but it has the advanced picture settings when you need to do minor tweaks to the picture quality. I was trying to decide between the Samsung 8000 series and this one. The Samsung model had network connectivity, but no Netflix connectivity.
Summary: This is, quite simply, the best TV out there. Don't bother looking at more flashy, expensive models. All those reviews you're probably read, disregard all of them and buy this TV. I spent several months researching TV's, and trying to weigh in on the battle between LCD and plasma. I finally decided on an LCD because the power consumption of plasmas can be daunting, plus we have a very bright living room that would have caused a lot of glare.
Summary: This is a really nice TV. I love the crisp, clean picture quality that the matte screen provides. The TV is also quite attractive and classy looking when off. In spite of buying the MediaBridge high speed HDMI cables (v. 1.3b), here on Amazon, we still noticed some lip sync issues when watching TV from our Dish Network programming. Some channels were worse than others (HGTV seemed quite noticeable as well as SYFY). DVD's on blue ray player were fine.
Summary: After weeks of methodical research, I purchased a 47" version of this set (LG LH90) on sale two weeks ago and find that it meets or exceeds every one of my most critical expectations. I have it connected to a Dish satellite HD receiver. The LED backlit (2,000,000 to 1 contrast ratio) picture is superb. Even dark on dark colors are easily distinguished (dark greens, dark blues, blacks). It offers an excellent picture even in brightly lit rooms with windows.
"BRAVO LG" - Most Impressive LCD/LED Performance, second to none!
24 March 2012
Summary: Purchased the LG 47LH90 from my Local Best Buy for $1499 on March 1st. Television graduated off my short list after Consumer Reports raved about its bigger brother (LG 55LH90). At the time, I was torn between the Sony and Samsung comparable units. Screen Reflectivity, Performance in bright rooms and Black contrasting were my three key drivers for picking this unit.
Summary: I bought two 47LH90s, they came on September 21, 2009. So far so good. Easy to set up out of the box, swivel stand attaches very easily if you follow the instructions and lay the panel on a padded surface (like a bed or couch). Both TVs are on the old Sony 27" TV stands. The 47LH90 only weighs 66 lbs with the stand and is easily moved by two people. The manufacture date was August 2009 on both.
Summary: Wonderful set. Picture is stunning with 1080 and 720 sources and looks good even with standard def. Set-up was straight forward. There is a picture wizard that gets you reasonable initial picture settings. Black levels are truly black, and depending on your brightness setting, you can make an all-black screen look like the TV is off. Colors appear to be accurate.
