Summary This is the second LG TV, both TVs arrived in excellent condition and presented no delivery problems. Setting up the LG 47GA7900 was easy, although we didn't follow manufacturer instructions that said to lay the TV on its face while installing the stand. Not wanting to put any pressure on the LED-LCD screen, one person held it vertically on one side while the other person screwed the stand into the back of the TV. The 47" TV only weighs 32 lbs and is easy enough for two people to handle safely. The stand is attractive and provides solid TV support.
We connected a Charter cable box (manufactured by Motorola), a Sony Blu-Ray player using HDMI cables and a Samsung sound bar using an optical cable. This package includes an "IR blaster" cable with two IR transmitters that need to be positioned in front of the components' IR receivers. The IR blaster allows you to use the LG remote to access some of the functions of the components. We placed one IR blaster transmitter in front of our cable box and the other in front of our Blu-ray player. We were never able to control the Samsung sound bar using the LG remote. The sound bar works fine, we just need to use the Samsung remote to control the volume and sound bar features. The TV easily found and connected to our home wireless network router.
The gesture wii-style function seems to move the cursor arrow in unpredictable directions, so we try to use the arrow cursor keys for screen navigation whenever possible. Finding and adjusting settings takes some searching. After changing the screen brightness and setting the screen size ratio to automatically sense and adjust according to the given input signal format, we now have a beautiful picture. The qwerty keyboard on one side of the remote is great for entering words or URL's in the Google Chrome browser. Unfortunately, LG chose to write some of the functions in red font on small black keys that are next to impossible to read (lights/magnifying glass help).
The voice search is interesting and useful, but not always accurate. For example, it kept finding "Prime" this and that when we clearly and repeatedly enunciated John Prine. That doesn't happen too often, though. Its quick ability to search TV and web for basically anything we want more than makes up for a few idiosyncrasies. The remote works well for controlling the TV, but the IR blaster is a poor substitute for either the components' manufacturers' remote controls or a well designed multi-component remote control like Logitech makes.
The picture quality of this TV is absolutely beautiful in 2D or 3D. The built in speakers are adequate but an additional sound system is recommended for better theater quality sound. The home screen is easy to navigate, but watching how-to videos on LG's website for a more complete picture also might help.
The Google TV platform has many applications for gaming and access to movies and TV programs that mostly require subscriptions to view. Our Google Chrome TV experience is much different than using the computer web browser on our PC. We are still exploring the many ways to access content and figure out what our family likes best.
