Bought this from Sears for my parents, whose old TV died on black Friday 2012. $599 seemed to be the standard sales price everywhere on that day.It is thin, light, and easy to set up. It has only 2 HDMI inputs, just enough for a set top box and a DVD player.Although it has none of the latest frills such as 3D, smart TV, etc., it is more than a basic TV, with edge LED back light and 120 Hz display.The screen is beautiful and bright. Being LED lit, it consumes less power and stays cool. LG is the world’s largest LCD panel maker, supplying panels to other TV makers.It comes with a table top stand. The wall mount adapter is optional.I did not test any of its analog inputs. It also has a USB input, presumably for displaying photos or video from a flash or disk drive. However, its location on the back is very inconvenient for thumb drives.Why 5 stars? Because, as of Nov 2012, you cannot get a better TV for this price.

I purchased this TV during a black friday sale. I was impressed by the price and specs but was skeptical about the two HDMI ports for practical use but that shouldn’t stop anyone from purchasing this TV. (I bought the Ultra High Performance HDMI Switcher 3-1 on Amazon) Problem Solved!
Sound is great for an LED TV not trebly, but if you are looking for a TV for your entertainment system don’t rely on just the TV speakers, definitely pair it with surround sound or a speaker bar.
If the TV had Web Apps built in, it would have added more bang for the buck. However this shouldn’t discourage a buyer, especially if you have an Apple TV, Roku or a Gaming System which now have web apps. (Or use the large sum of money you savee buying this, and put a bit towards one of the systems above)
For the price and specs this should be a no brainer for anyone.
Right out of the box, I did not have to tinker with any settings, looked great and no dead pixels. I threw it up on the wall using a Videosecu Tilt Wall Mount and couldn’t be happier with it on the wall.
Pros:Slim LED 1.4 InchesGreat Picture out of the Box120Hz
Cons:2 HDMI PortsWeb Apps
I was going to either purchase the Vizio Razor Led ML470SSL or Samsung UN40ES6100 but would suggest this LG over any of them to all my family and friends.
Awesome picture, Awesome price. As thick as my thumb. I bought mine at Walmart for under $600. Can’t ask for a better HDTV at that price. It replaces my Sharp Aquos 42 inch LCD as the main TV which is still going strong.
