Great Television

Steve S., Newegg
18 March 2012
  • Summary: When I bought this TV it was a great deal as it came with some freebies. Even without the freebies I think that the performance/cost ratio is high.
  • Pros: Excellent picture Two remotes that let you do everything - the simple remote allows a lot of interaction with just a few buttons Netflix interface is great - Quicker and better than the Wii Software updates regularly keep me updated with Netflix etc. Interfaces with Plex right out of the box. I h...
  • Cons: Built in apps are a bit hokey. web surfing is clunky so I never do it.

What else besides a duck floats on water?

Rick F., Newegg
11 February 2012
  • Summary: I am enjoying it, though the bleed light on the sides is annoying, but I guess not enough to look into to see if adjusting settings may improve that.
  • Pros: Great picture quality, happy with it and it was what I was looking for in my budget. Have yet to calibrate it, or use the wifi- I just plugged it in and ate popcorn. Plenty of HDMI input ports.
  • Cons: I have yet to try a gray scale test with this unit, but the first flaw I notice is that on dark scenes with bright letters, or a bright object (i.e. a space ship in space), the light bleeds through the sides like crazy and the whole horizontal area where the brighter object is lighter. Also wish ...

Great TV for the price

Aaron F., Newegg
9 November 2011
  • Summary: I got what I payed for. Mostly image quality is the concern, and this thing just looks great. And newegg had a 10% off promo when I purchased so the price was really good.
  • Pros: -Great viewing angle. -Crisp colors. -Works great with my Xbox, and computer. -Comes with two remotes with batteries and a wifi adapter. -Speakers sound good. -Very light for a 47" screen. -Very intuitive navigation using the remote to change settings.
  • Cons: -Power cable was very short. Had to use an extension, it looks to be only about 6ft... really? Unless you have a power outlet right next to it prepare to have to rig something up. Not enough to take an egg off but still annoying.

Great Value

Ken G., Newegg
9 October 2011
  • Summary: The USB WiFi attachment had to have electrical tape. The bit light was a bit intense in my opinion.
  • Pros: This is a great set more so at the price. LG makes a quality TV. I hope it lasts the 7 years my last TV gave me (RCA 32" LCD).
  • Cons: None that I could find.

Awesome picture!

Christen B., Newegg
7 September 2011
  • Summary: Didn't get the promised NAS and router that was advertised to come with it. Emailed Newegg about it and never heard back from them. Only disappointment about the purchase.
  • Pros: Fantastic picture quality. I can see the THX stamp justified. Clean, fluid motion with sports and action. Very light, easy install. Quick setup to wireless and netflix! Puts my 55' Samsung to shame(it's older). For the (sale)price, awesome LCD.
  • Cons: Nothing yet.

Fantastic picture for the price

Gary C., Newegg
27 June 2011
  • Summary: I did a lot of research on a good 47" set, and this one came out on top for price and performance. What really blew me away was the viewing angle. Viewing angle is really important to me as I use the set in a large room with some viewers off to the side, and I just hate it when people's faces wash...
  • Pros: Incredible viewing angle, great colors and contrast
  • Cons: Sound just OK and about on par with most sets now
