LG 47LA640V 47'' 3D Cinema Full HD Smart LED Tv
After a lot of research into Smart Tv's I chose this TV for its brilliant picture quality, full web access, smart apps and ease of use. The TV looks great and is well equipped with 3 HDMI and 3 usb ports so it has all the connectivity that I needed. I purchased the Magic Remote separately and love how easy it is to use with this TV. All in all I am really happy with my LG 47LA640V.

Great picture and features but could be better
First the good points, this TV has a superb screen and the smart features enabling you to share content from your pc or mobile are excellent. The 3d is really good and the built in wifi works well. The remote control is large and well laid out. There are all the main buttons on the tv if you misplace the remote. The menu on the tv itself is very easy and a joy to use. Even where you are trying to use the remote to type words using an onscreen keyboard is quite good.
Bad Points - 200Hz is too slow a refresh rate and I noticed significant flicker in fast moving pictures.
I could not record or pause the live tv as it would allow me to record from my sky box connected via HDMI.
Although there are a large number of connections at the back of this tv it is virtually impossible to put cables in and out if this tv is fixed to a wall. The tv does not have a proper power switch so it is in standby mode
unless unplugged from mains. The internet browser is functional and slow. The fast forward/rewind on the media player is poor. Some of these could be quickly corrected if a few free apps like chrome or vlc player became available for download.

Excellent tv , I and the family are enjoying it very much. The only downfall is that it only has one slot for the scart and as so many products exist now a days that need to be connected to the tv e.g Wii, DVD and sky box I need to keep on twisting the TV to take the scart off and place the other one depending on what we are using.

Wonderful picture disappointed with sound
Very pleased with product except for poor sound quality did not expect to have to spend a lot of money for a sound bar other than that satisfied with the product. Recommended the TV to friends who have had to purchased a sound bar for their 42" because of the poor sound quality. We are now waiting for our tv supplier to give information on a LG sound bar or alternatives.
