Summary: I did my homework before buying this television, and I'm glad I did. The picture quality is superb, and the power consumption is only 90 W. Turn on the energy saver (which has 3 levels), and it goes even lower.
Summary: While some complain about reflections being an issue, I have found that as long as I keep any sources of glare directly off the screen (particularly directly behind your seating position), glare is hardly an issue. Off axis viewing is superb, as well as color accuracy and contrast.
Summary: We bought this TV online from Vann's in November of 2010 and we have thoroughly enjoyed it ever since. It replaced a 2002 Sony CRT Trinitron for the living room. WOW, and what a differnce it has made!
Summary: I am extremely pleased with this TV so I bought another one 55" with 3D. Inky blacks, I mean really black, as black as black can be. Beautiful colors. Easy set up with Image Science Foundation approved calibration controls. THX certified picture.
Summary: Did A LOT of research prior to purchasing this unit. Long story short everything I read pointed me to this unit. I then checked the unit and setup at many locations until I finally pulled the trigger.
Without a Doubt the Best LED TV (Non 3D) for the Money

Summary: This LG 47LE8500 has an amazing picture and really is the absolute BEST LED TV (Non 3-D) thats out there for this price. I ended up getting mine for just under $1,500. I took a very long time to make my decision for the TV.
Summary: I did a LOT of research on HD LED TV's before purchasing this one right after Christmas. It had great professional critic reviews as well as good customer reviews. It was an excellent choice for us and we love it.
