Pros Picture is great and the specs are impressive
Built-in speakers has been adequate
Cons The apps are pathetic
Summary I've had this TV for a few weeks and am pleased with it. The picture is sharp and overcomes the ambient light issues we have in the family room where it is installed. While I have it hooked directly to my media server PC (running TwonkyMedia Manager) via HDMI cable, the DLNA implementation (plugged into my wired 1GB Ethernet network) is nice and actually easier to use than the 1920x1080p PC-mode display.
My only gripe is the separation of digital and analog TV stations into separate groups. Rather than interleaving the digital and analog stations into a single sequence, you either have to cycle through all of one group before getting to the next or you have to specifically select a channel from either group (not all that difficult) to allow you to cycle through that group. My Samsung and Sony Bravia TV's behave in my preferred manner. The audio from the built-in speakers has been adequate for my needs. While I've played around with the free LG applications, I consider them a frill that isn't worth my time.
If NetFlix ever provides a reasonable selection of new movies, I might consider using that embedded application, but for now, the basic TV capabilities are sufficient. Overall, I'm quite pleased with my purchase.
*** P.S. If you will buy this TV I suggest you have compare price before you decide at: www.amazon.com/gp/*************?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%****%2Foffer-listing%2FB004OOQ8EK%3Fie%3DUTF8%26ref_%3Ddp_olp_new_map%26condition%3Dnew%23&tag=***************&********=ur2&camp=1789&creative=390957
Pros Picture, features & price. Customer service has been good.
Cons Magic Motion remote is defective but LG is sending a replacement under warranty.
Summary I used to be a devoted Sony products fan but LG has impressed me.
Pros Great picture, nice use of light sensor for auto-dim, fully functional app experience, great price.
Cons For some reason no magic motion remote included with the tv, bit of a wifi hog.
Summary Great tv for the price and features. Love the dlna integration and the apps that are included. Got at Fry's one day labor sale for 600.00, if you can find a deal like this it's worth getting it even without 120hz.
Pros great tv at a great price
Cons wasnt free
Summary I bought this tv in a scratch and dent sale for $200, the only thing scratch was the box and the manual, sweet steal
Pros Great 47" HD TV. Great color and contrast resulting in a great picture.
Cons Apps are very weak.
Video streaming will only run the LG apps for Youtube, Hulu Plus, and Netflix. Very Limited.
Summary Love the TV. Web browsing was easy set up with home wireless.
The big disappointment is the Video Streaming. It will ONLY run the LG video app for Hulu Plus ($8/mo), LG app for Youtube, or the LG app for Netflix.
You cannot browse to Hulu or Youtube, and simply watch videos...a key reason we bought a smart TV. LG Smart TV does not support the proper video player.
