Summary: Amazing television, I bought it for $1300. The contrast ratio is very nice. The 3D looks great with passive glasses( I don’t use it regularly) . Picture and sound quality are great for my living room.
Summary: After a lot of reviewing and testing at stories I stumbled on this set online. I had seen the newer model in stores and loved it. This model is very similar and much less expensive. All the reviews for it said good things so i now own it! After a month of usage, I'm still in love with this set. Awesome picture. I game and play blu-rays and the picture is super clear with great color and deep blacks.
Summary: I've seen the 25 year evolution of LG from Goldstar. Back then some CRT computer monitors failed b/c of the flyback and once it happened you had to throw the unit away. Purchased in Jan'12 one 47LW5700, the audio response was poor. (Compared to a '09 Samsung with same 10+10W specs and same source) BIG TIME. And this is not the low end model. Another issue: LG Apps is an unfinished development.
Summary: Well this si the second time I have tried this model number and both have had underwhe,lmign picture quality, so it's obviously I didn't just happen to get two lemons. I hsve tried MANY 2011 and 2012 tvs. Many have bothered my head, so I couldn't keep them despite liking them. Sucha s the hx929 or the st50. So now I ahd to come back to this mdoel tot ry again. The settings I am using are the CNET ones. The picture is very dull and lifeless when using them.
Summary: I made this purchase after reading the reviews. I'm not technically savvy, so was a little concerned about getting into setting the picture and set-up. However, I couldn't be more happy with the purchase. The picture quality is excellent and the set-up was easy. I've never owed a TV where I could surf the internet - that is a tremendous feature that I'm using constantly. The 3D works better than I imagined that it would outside of a theater.
Summary: This TV is fabulous. My husband convinced us to get the 55inch and it is worth it! It does have Netflix, Hulu & Amazon Plus. It has a radio tuner, but not Pandora, which we miss. Otherwise this is so good! The 3D function is great and the glasses are not bulky and require no batteries! It comes with 4 glasses. The volume needs some work. In our house (the living room is average size and semi enclosed) but it doesn't get loud enough for some things.
Great TV all around, 2D to 3D conversion works very well

Summary: I've been very happy with the purchase of this television. It has a ton of features and looks great. I've been very impressed with the 2D to 3D conversion. While it's subtle compared to true 3D content, it works quite well. I've found it works well especially for watching sports and movies that have a lot of contrast. Also, I can now watch Netflix without having to use my PS3.
Summary: Reading reviews of this tv I don't understand the negative points some reviewers have stated. Try hard as I can, I cannot find fault with anything on this tv. I love the picture,features, and even the sound for an led is good. The sound really has surprised me after reading all the negatives about the built in sound. I have heard leds that have a much worse sound output than this tv.
Summary: This TV is truly awesome! Its picture is fantastic after some tweaking(see other reviews) and the 3D picture is stunning plus you don't have to buy the expensive active shutter glasses! One thing that i did have a problem with though is the DLNA. Its interface isn't great if you have many files. I would definitely recommend a Sony blu-ray player for that task! That being said it had no problem hooking up to our Netgear Stora.
Good for movies, BAD FOR GAMING. INPUT LAG!!!!!!!!
5 May 2012
Summary: If you're buying this tv for just watching movies, it works fine. It's a good deal, but do not even attempt think about hooking up a PC or any gaming console to it because the INPUT lag makes gaming impossible on this TV. LG Customer service is horrible. They respond with generic cut and paste messages that do not solve your issues. LG Has been ignoring their customer requests regarding the input lag problem. DO NOT BUY THIS FOR GAMING. IT WILL NOT RUN WELL.
