Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Picture Quality If your looking for a TV without all the internet features and other associated options that go along with a smart TV, then this is the one to pick. It has great color, good sound, and although I've only owned it a short time, it appears to be well built. Now, how long will it last? Hard to say as that depends on a number of factors. Ask me in 5 years if I still have this TV and how it's doing. July 2, 2015

Answer: 
Yes. I've found that a majority of LG screens tend to be IPS (certainly when compared to competitors), and my own model (55LB5900 - big brother) certainly appeared to be an IPS panel...but I checked with customer support anyways, and they confirmed that the whole LB5900 series is indeed IPS, and not TN.

I am concerned that the tv stand I have will not work with recently purchased LG Electronics 50LB5900 50-Inch 1080p 120Hz LED TV. Can someone tell me the footprint of the base stand? What is the width of the base stand? What is the depth of the base stand?

Thanks

LB5900 - stand holders?!?

Afaik, each unit of the LB5900 series (47/50/55/60, along with possibly the LB6000 series) comes with 2x Stand Holders, presumably with the purpose of helping to 'hold' each 'stand' in place. The problem is that it's only mentioned once in the included manual, under the parts list. There is no explanation concerning their proper use, how they should be installed, or any other information what-so-ever.

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this television and its accessories. The STAND HOLDERS are accessories that can be attached to the STAND BRACKETS, if you choose, and provide for WIRE/CABLE management, to reduce the potential jumble of wires behind the TV.
