"Excellent picture for the price"4.5 starson by pickle311
Pros: Great picture
Cons: Only 60hz refresh rate though that's not as important as most like to believe it is
could use more than 2 HDMI inputs but not needed
Summary: Bottom line is this is a great screen for the price. I went into the store with the intentions of buying a Samsung 40" LN40C550. The Samsung has better specs on paper, higher contrast ratio and 120hz refresh rate, but the LG had a better picture. Not only did the LG look better, it was $10 cheaper. Not that $10 matters, but it was cheaper for th 47" vs the 40" and the 47" had a better picture. The only screen I saw in the store with a better picture than this one was the LG42". Looking at it side by side with this screen, you could see a very small difference in the picture quality between the 2. The 42" appeared to be a little more sharp thought not by much. The 42" was the same price as the Samsung 40" I went in to buy. Also to make note, all screen comparrisons were made with Avatar playing on a Samsung Blu-Ray player which I also bought. The difference in picture quality will be even less noticeable with standard DVD and probably not noticeable at all with cable seeing how nothing is broadcast above 1080i or 60hz. I made the decision to sacrifice a little picture quality to get a larger screen and have no regrets at all. At $799, this screen was a no brainer.
