What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG 47" Full Screen HDTV This TV has proven to be the perfect birthday gift for my husband. The screen is big but not too big and the picture quality is great. I love the fact the you can choose the type of picture and sound you would like during each movie / show / sporting event you are currently watching....keep up the great work LG, as you have customers for life with your products!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could be more user intuitive Great picture, Great features and excellent design. My original remote was DOA and it was difficult to setup without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 47LE5500 Great TV so far, but somehow a gnat has gotten inside the TV and died right in the middle of the screen. No big deal really, but it appears that with the right background there is a pixel out or something. Once you get the setting right on this TV the picture is fantastic. Feature are great also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Top of the heap This has been the most satisfying TV experience for me and my family. We thouroughly enjoy the quality of this HD TV. I have been looking to buy for some time. When I seen this set for the price value.. it was a done deal even before the sales rep said a word. All of our movies are a true experience with sight and sound. We added the LG sound system to enhance the sound in true surround sound and it is all well worth the monies. All my friends envy the deal I received. They all had to rush out and get what they thought were good deals and now see that waiting would have paid off for them. They spent way more money and I have one that has a better picture than they have. I would recommend this TV to anyone who would ask.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great HD TV, if only it would do DTS passthrough.. I am absolutely thrilled using this TV for the past 6 months. I am watching DTV, but I mostly enjoy using its media player along with its optical digital sound output. So I just connect my USB HDD drive and I watch .mkv 1080p videos. I connect the TV to my A/V 5.1 receiver with an optical fiber cable and I enjoy Dolby Digital 5.1 sound. The only downside is that this TV will not do DTS passthrough, so if an .mkv media file has DTS sound you can't hear it. I am not asking about DTS downmix (play the sound through the TVs 2 speakers), but if only it had DTS passthrough to an A/V receiver through the optical digital output, it would be the most perfect HD TV ever. Anyway, I am very happy with this TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! This is our first hd television and not only amazes me, but all my friends and family that have lcd and plasma televisions. It amazes me everytime that the screen is virtually all white and how bright and crisp it is. HD is phenomenal on this thing! The remote and tv itself are very easy to use. The online features are a plus. The frame has a purple tinge to it, but not enough to clash with any room colors. I can't say enough about this television. If you are in the market for a new one this LG LED is the way to go. The picture clarity is by far the best from any other competitor companies. LG has a winner with this one! Preseason football started, UNBELIEVABLE to watch on this tv!!
