Which? Magazine Best Buy, 47LW550T

"The cracking 3D picture sets it apart from many rivals. Excellent depth, the absence of crosstalk (slight double images) and solid, vivid colour make it very easy on the eye."

• “Enough 3D specs for all the family, plus spiffing 2D pics” • “This is the poster boy for LG’s Cinema 3D line” • “All told, this is a great 2D set with plenty of features, which also proves that there ain’t no party like a 3D-viewing party.”

But another way to enjoy 3D is Passive 3D,which has the advantage that the polarised glasses it uses are almost disposably cheap. They don't need charging, are lighter and hence more comfortable than active glasses ,and don't have sync issues.

The 47LW550T offers a high-quality 2D picture performance thanks to efficient edge-LED lighting and a brilliant set of user adjustments, while 3D images benefit from the 47-inch screen size and flicker-free Cinema 3D technology.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by It broke Capacitor problem, sounds familiar? It broke after 3.5 years. Will never be buying LG electronics again, such a waste of money. 26 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic TV This is a seriously good TV. The picture quality is flawless. The 3D works well. I have heard many people say that it is not as good as the active systems around, but I cannot see a difference. Yes there are a few little issues that need addressing. The flash on the web browser is out of date and renders lots of website useless. Also the DLNA connection is a little dodgy and can cut out without a reason. I can see no reason why both of these issues cannot be rectified with a firmware update. Be aware that although Netflix is used in many of the adverts for this TV, is not available in the UK (at time of writing). Love film however is. There are enough connections to baffle even the most anorak of us, but it remains a simple TV to use. Overall Get this TV, especially as you can pick them, up really cheap now. LG please sort out the minor issues with Flash and DLNA. 15 June 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great TV BUT only supports Flashplayer 8. In most respects this TV meets all my requirements. The one BIG problem is that it only supports Flashplayer 8. It cannot be used as a normal web browser because most video is from sites using Flashplayer 10 or 11. Apparently there is no mechanism for upgrading. This means that normal access to Youtube, iplayer, 4OD etc is impossible. The TV gives great picture quality, great 3D and is easy to use. The passive 3D menas that the glasses are cheap to buy. If only it had Flashplayer 10. 08 February 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Was a bit apprehensive after ordering this TV and reading some reviews however pleasantly surprised. Great picture quality, as well as 3D quality, and great sound. The only slight down side is the Smart feature which can be a bit slow to respond sometimes, however overall a really good choice. 02 December 2011
