Pros + Amazon Price
+ Thin Bezel and Thin Body
+ Great 1080p picture
Cons - Underwhelming sound
- LED Edge lighting
Summary While Panasonic, Sony and Samsung all battle each other for who's TV is best, LG saving the money and passing it on to the user, specifically me. This TV is loaded with everything you would expect in a 2012 TV minus the fads or undeveloped programs. This one caught my eye because it is so thin and the price is amazing.
The bezel on it is very thin and the TV without the stand is under a inch and a half thick. I bought this to replace my old dinosaur of a Sharp TV (also an under-rated brand). It is still a great TV, but at almost 6inches wide it was a heavy best. This TV, although not recommended, I am able to hold in one arm it is so thin and light.
The picture is great, but I am never a huge fan of edge lit LED as they always appear lighter/whiter at the edges. It isn't a huge deal expect a really dark scene in a movie, and is most noticeable when loading a game or movie and the input is blank. The screen should be black but is grey around the edges. That was a rather large rant, but it is not by any means a turn off from this TV.
I am a big fan of LG Simplink, although not flawless it easily allows the connection of a surround sound unit with only a few button pushes on the remote. I do appreciate the picture calibrator, but I found some user adjustments were still needed as the TV couldn't get it quite right.
The sound is pretty weak on the TV itself, but that is almost expected these days. I simply got a sound bar to go with it and it suffices for the sized room this TV is in.
Note: I suggest check for best deal before you will buy this LG TV at: **********.blogspot.com/p/lg-47ls4600.html
Overall you would be lucky to find a better built TV in this price range. Keep it up LG.
Pros Unpacked it, plugged it in, and viola, it's up and running and the Olympics are looking good! No initial adjustment was necessary, maybe down the road, but I was really happy with the setup!
Cons None at this time and I hope it stays this way.
Summary If you get this one I'm telling you, you will NOT be sorry. It's the real deal.The salesman at Costco walked up on me in the TV department and said, "Hard to decide, hmm?" I said, "No! Give me that one right there (47LS46). It was $130 cheaper than I almost paid this morning on the Walmart site!"

"Terrific picture"on by laxxmom
Pros great picture, easy to use
Cons does not have closed captions. If you want close captions you must set up your cable box to close caption everything.
Summary well worth the money, don't hesitate
"Great for price"on by cclucky04
Pros Pixel Mapping 1:1 tons of tv's do it but LG actually puts it in their spec sheet
Great Price sub 600 from frys
Nice flush look wall mounted
Cons Blacks aren't best out for the models that came out this year, however with the price I have no real complaints
Summary I use this as an HDTV and a monitor, when looking for a new monitor it was ridiculous at the price points they're running.
LG has pixel mapping, and in their spec sheet actually say so. It looks absolutely just as good on my PC as it does playing a movie.
I wall mounted it and it looks great, the black levels from the review said they aren't the deepest, but it doesn't get much cheaper than this.
ISF Settings already set, which I thought was great, just a tiny bit of fine tuning and your good to go, no "need" for alot of users to calibrate.
I dont really have any cons for this "monitor" I dont think it gets any better without spending a ridiculous amount more.
As for an HDTV if your looking for the price range this is in, I would recommend it, if you can go up to one of the nicer panasonic models like a TC-P50ST50 I beleive it would be worth the price.
I have a TC-P60ST50 right now and it is just incredible, I will be getting the TC-P65VT60 or GT60 this year, however with the price point this TV is at I think it and the reviews here show its worth.
5 Stars, Great set of functionality and easy setup!
