Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I purchased this TV last year and have been impressed with the value. I was able to purchase this TV for the lowest price I could find for 47" HDTV's. I have seen many other TVs in this price range that don't offer 1080p at 120Hz. The picture is great and I really enjoy the swivel ability of the stand since I view from different positions. The picture looks great from all angles, so everybody can enjoy the image. The image is bright, sharp and clear and never has any "ghosting" when I play games on it or watch television. In dark scenes I am able to see everything, which is better than my previous television. I think that is due to the dynamic contrast. Whatever it is, it works. The only things I can offer as downsides to this particular TV are the remote control, the sound, and only having 3 HDMI inputs. The remote control isn't anything special; but, that isn't a big deal to me. The thing that I don't like is the buttons for switching video inputs are on opposite sides of the controller. I use this almost every time I watch the TV. I think this could be easier if the remote control was designed a little better. The sound of this TV was a little disappointing at first. The speakers are another point that I thought could be better. My first impression of the sound, coming from my previous TV, was that it sounded very far away and quiet. I was able to adjust the sound more to my preference through the audio menu; so again, not a major issue. The only other option that I could suggest be better is the lack of a fourth HDMI input. I have 3 HDMI devices plugged into this TV and I have to have one of them hanging out the side. Having all three in back, and a fourth on the side would be perfect. All that being said, I am very pleased with this television. I think the value outweighs is shortcomings. For the price, I really can't complain as it has some nice features that balance it's faults. I would recommend this TV to anyone that is on a budget. I don't think you can find a better television for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 47LD500 Definitely a value -- quality for price. When my daughter and son-in-law saw the picture and heard the price they went right out and purchased their own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great I got this TV as a gift for my husband last fall and we have not been disappointed. The color is great, the ease of use is wonderful considering my husband is not one of those technical guys. My grandkids play their WII on it and the 6yo thinks its the best thing since strawberry milk. Just ordered a 55" to replace the 47" (that my grandson threw a wii remote at) but going to get it fixed and put in bedroom because the picture is too good to dismiss (even with a wii remote imprint). I am a true LG customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Only TV I Will Watch I have owned a number of televisions over the years but the new LG that I have is the best ever. I will never purchase another TV unless it has LG on it and would recommend everyone else do the same. In fact, I recommended to my son that he and his wife purchase an LG and they did and are just as happy with it as I am with mine. Based on my recommendation my brother in law also purchased an LG TV. It is the best TV on the market.
