Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Picture - Good Price - Black Level/NG The thing one might consider when buying the 47LH55 are black levels and off axis performance. If, like me, your TV room is darkish, you won't get those inky blacks like the led back-lit LCD and plasma's models. Darkly lit movie scenes unfortunately suffer. C/NET appropriately called the picture a bit "soft." Off-axis viewing isn't good. Things get a light grayish looking cast in my viewing room. But most of my viewing isn't dark movies, thank goodness. If you're in a reasonable viewing angle, for most viewing, I love this set. The picture; color balance/brightness, control, etc. are wonderful. Terrific PC monitor,also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best. TV. Ever! This TV was my first major purchase of a HDTV. After tons of research and comparison shopping, I found the 47LH55 to be the best TV for the best price. I have had it for about 8 months now and it is by far the best TV I have ever owned. Thank you to LG for making such a superior product. I will definitely buy an LG HDTV again in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent buy I recently purchased this LG tv after my old LCD tv broke. This one was so much cheaper and had so many more functions. The quality was better, the clarity was better, the sound was better, I can go on and on. I am a big fan of Lg we also have a dryer and a stove that are LG and they have been so dependable. I just cant get over how great of a picture this tv has. When ever we watch tv I catch myself thinking that we are just looking through a window and the people are real because it looks so life like. Way to go LG on this one, and way to go for those who buy this tv.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value Best Value for the money. I have checked out the Panasonic Plasma G series and I can honestly say on a side by side comparison the LH55 wins out. Great features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 47lh55 This is the first HD flat screen LCD TV I have purchased and it is all that I dream HD would be. The only trouble I've had so far was trying to figure out how to get it from ATL where I bought it to NC where I live.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV After reading some of the reviews on other sights I was thinking of not buying this. Then I read some good reviews. I got this at a great buy and I am so glad I listened to the good reviews. I really like this TV. First HD TV I've had. One thing that could be better is the sound at times. However, this could just be the channel it is on. Other times the sound is great and loud.
