What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great even it you don't have HD I own a 47LS85-UA but this is the closest model to the one I bought. This unit was discontinued a month after I bought it but it is still being sold at bargain prices so I thought it would still be worthwhile to do a review. I do not have HD capability, currently using a Directv Tivo box and DVD recorder/player but I may put up an antenna at some point for true HD. Most of the reviews talk about good HD but I can say it can also do an excellent job of upconverting standard signals. This can be important since many cable channels are not HD and DVD's are still predominant. I was disappointed in the lack of S-Video input but I bought an S-Video to 720p HDMI upconverter on the Internet to overcome this. However the unit does accept composite video (and VGA input) and can upconvert these signals internally. I was very surprised and pleased with how well it works with standard video. There are plenty of settings to tweak the signal for improved performance. I use the Tivo remote most of the time but the unit remote Q Menu, AV Mode, Menu, (Input is on my Tivo) are used a lot. The manual talks about a button between the Q Menu and the Menu button that can change mode easily but my remote is missing this button. (I wish I had it). I use the Mode (Q Menu) the most. The zoom feature is particularly useful with standard video. It is the best I have seen with custom height adjustment and the ability to move the screen up and down within the picture. This can help when you don't want to cut off peoples heads. On sports you often need to see both near the top and near the bottom (for tennis the score and the baseline for example). Sometimes I tweak the height to show what I need or I just switch to 4x3 mode to see it all. I have making everyone look fat so I don't use the 16x9 mode when watching people although it can be used for race cars. One thing I like is that the settings are independent for different inputs so I use composite input and upconverted HDMI to switch between two different preset modes sometimes. Particularly when I want to maximize view of the image. Zoom mode does have overscan issues and some of the width edges are cut-off. I wish it were better in that regard. The input choice button is smart and only offers choices that have a current signal. The only other problem I have is that there are more reflections than I would like from windows and room lights. It is not an ambient light problem but a mirror problem (I can see the window or light in the picture). I can usually minimize the problem by rotating the screen on its stand. All in all I am very pleased with this top of the line unit available at closeout prices these days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First Flat Screen TV What a difference! It took me a long time to graduate to TV viewing at its very best, but I finally made it --- and seemed to have chosen one of the best products available. So far, I haven't found a single thing to criticize on this product. My only criticism, which has nothing to do with the Tv, is that this is one of the most user-unfriendly websites I've ever seen. There's very little that could be done to improve the TV, but a LOT that could be done to improve the website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV This was my first experience with an LG tv and I am so impressed with the color and picture that I have already recommended it to two other people who have also bought similar set. I love the True Motion feature. It makes all shows seem like they are live and the characters are in the room with you. I like the easy access to the Energy Saver feature so at night I can easily dim the screen. Some other points to hit on: slim design, small bezel around the screen, sound. I know that by now this product is no longer available, but if you are looking at an LG, they seem to have TV's figured out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great TV but... This TV is a great deal and has a beautiful picture. The remote is easy to use and offers a button for quick changes. The only problem I had with it is that Closed Captioning does not work through the HDMI connection. I'll sometimes have to keep the volume low at certain times so I like using the closed captioning. Unfortunately now I have to go through a more complicated process. Don't get me wrong, I definitely LOVE this TV but you'd think LG would have some foresight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I hope for We went to the store to buy a different brand of television. Once we got to the store and saw the difference in picture quality we were blown away! When we saw the picture and the price we went with the LG 47sl80! Who needs to go to the movies when you have such a great picture right in your own home! All we need now is surround sound and we may never leave the house again!
