It's an ok bundle but not great.
Let me start by saying I may not be your average reviewer. I work in AV support at a large well know company. I know good AV when I see it and I HAVE seen it when I had my 47LD650. That was an amazing TV - thanks LG! So when I saw this bundle (the 47LW5300 and 3D BR-player) I thought that LG would blow my sock off again. Alas I am (really) disappointed with the TV's ability to upscale/trumotion/keep-up etc etc. My LD650 was flawless. I was VERY excited every time I used it. The Trumotion was fantastic and kept up well without any pixellation. But I had to turn off the Trumotion on this LW5300 because it was honestly just that bad. I can't bear to sit and watch the blurriness and pixellation it produces when the Trumotion is turned on. I must say I "enjoy" the overall 3D experience produced by consumer large screen tv's but I am sorry I bought this tv. I feel very let down by a brand that I thought the world of when I had my LD650. It was #and is# a cheap in every sense of the word bundled tv and BR-player. What did my LD650 have that this LW5300 doesn't? Is it a different processor? I would very much like an LG professional to re-gain my trust in LG TV's. Everytime I sit down to watch something I think and dream of my LD650 and how good it was and then look at my LW5300 and realise this is what I am stuck with. I know it's my choice to have this #cheap# 3D tv over my yearned-for 2D LD650 #yes I buy all the latest 3D movies and watch them on my LW5300 and it looks, well, just ok#, and I keep it only because I am truly hooked on 3D. But please steer clear of this model. That said it is sturdy and cosmetically looks nice. Overall it is simply a cheap TV #bundle# and not worth it. I wish I could exchange it for a replacement to see if it is simply a lemon. How about it LG; will you replace it for me? I honestly believe LG is a quality brand and look out for LG products, but this purchase has disappointed me greatly.

Great TV with outstanding picture quality.
I've had this TV about a year now and I love it. The picture quality is amazing, especially with movies such as Avatar and Oz. The included 3D Blu-Ray player is great, too. I only replaced it because I wanted a Home Theater system, so I got the LG BH6830SW. The two of them together are the perfect 3D viewing experience. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Can't beat this package for the price
I have had this TV package for nearly a year and half now. I have no complaints about it's quality, though an easier to use menu would be great. The quick menu works great, but a little hard to understand the functions. Mainly the picture size and quality.
It has great 3D view, especially since you use none powered type 3D glasses. Don't need to worry about battery dying or extra wires.
The only other thing I would chage is the HDMI ports: make them 20 or 30 degree angle out the back so it is easier to mount the TV on the wall. Coming striaght out the back, or 90 degrees makes it hard to mount the TV to a wall.

Great performance & value.
Features and performance are awesome. I didn't need or want SMART so I believe not having it in this model helped to keep the cost down.
