Summary: If you are in the market for a high quality TV, there are definitely other options than paying a premium by getting a Smart TV. When going for good, clear picture, don't get sucked into the pitfalls by purchasing a TV with a lot of bells and whistles that you may not need and may not have support...
Pros: *Great image quality. *3D depth and sound adjusting works well. *Wireless and LAN connectivity are a plus.
Cons: *No future updates for Adobe Flash Player Support for this model at this time. *Limited functionality for sites that are Java intensive.
Summary: In terms of color, I like the Panasonic ST50 plasma better: the color is rich and vibrant. Not that this LG is bad, but perhaps just not as good, regarding lightning and darkening, I think it's almost like inherent to the edge-lit LCD-LED technology thing.
Pros: Good TV. Color OKAY. Magic remote works well (to me). TV speakers are pretty good. Not excessive lightning or clouding.
Cons: A bit magenta, minimum light leak or lightning on the top two corners only when screen is complete black. Minimum darkening on white scene on the 2 vertical edges. Magic remote easy to flop down and arrow can keep popping up on the TV screen, even for a couple of seconds can be annoying.
Summary: This is an amazing TV! And even in 47in it is a great size. The 3D effects are really great and the SmartTV is really cool. It has a nice sleek remote that can be used as a wii-like mouse controller (but compared to the wii much more smooth in sensing).
