    We’re in no doubt that the best value for money in this test is represented by LG’s splendid 47LW650T – and not just because it offers an inch more screen than its competitors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great to start but needs an update Great 3D experience and quality for viewing movies. The 'Smart TV' element could do with an update, Adobe Flash Player only version 8 which means the web browser and internet access through the TV is very limited and would open up more features if the flash player was up to date.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great LG product I am very happy with our LG smart TV. Its quite an upgrade for us from our old clumpy TV. Over a year on and everything working fine. Great quality build. 3D amazing and doesnt hurt your eyes. Easy to set up and use. Great range of functions. We did buy this with an additional sound bar system for films, music etc which was on offer, Brilliant. Im not technically minded so its no good me trying to explain all its features but I know quality when I see it. Im not one of those who just go out and buy any TV. I read reviews first and compared this with other TVs. LG is the first choice for me anyway and has been for quite some time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product has nice picture 42LW650T - this tv has nice picture but sometimes has a problem with the display of motion (flickering at the edges of moving objects) Picture 3D is very well. I recommend :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from experience real ! Incredible experience with my 42LW650T, a television with a real image with a fine edge, with a screen of 42 "fully usable, a minimum thickness, leaving it as a picture on the wall. Content "Smart" with several app that make interaction with the internet quickly and easily, we can surf the internet by accessing "youtube", "facebook", movie channels online content needing "flash player". Updates system enhance the software, all done intuitively.   In my view the only control is weak, as if he had a "ferrari" of tv's, but can only "fly" at a speed of 50 Km / h. There is motion controls that enhance the use of 42LW650T, never used, seems to me a more optimal alternative. A brief comment on the "3D" incredible, real easy. We can adjust the depth, position output image (right / left) and advise that the tv is on eye level. Must be well planned disposition of the screen in the room for a good use of 3D, or there will be distortion in the corners of the image. An incredible tool sitema the DLNA, which allows interaction with computers in the house and even the smartphones.we can access photos, videos so quickly and safely. And I believe that my experiences are not going to stop here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG Smart TV We have owned our TV now for 12 months. The facilities such as HD and 3D plus the surround sound make the viewing experience well worth the purchase. I also like the online facilities esp iPlayer. There is a lot more to this TV than we use it for. We just need to discover its full potential. Overall an excellent TV that stands up to its more expensive competitors both in quality and facilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All the features you need for home entertainment! My initial criteria looking for a new "smart" TV was built-in WiFi and that's how I discovered the LG42LW650T. It satisfies its primary function with excellent TV reception but comes into its own in the "smart" area, linking easily to my home network it performs as a media player for music, photos and videos. Using dnla on my LG phone I can even play the phone media! Overall I have nothing but praise for this product and as a bonus it has 3D #that really works!#.
