Pretty good quality for a very good price
Let me start by saying that my television came promptly and in one piece, two days after ordering. I was very happy about that, and even happier that it wasn't busted up into fragments during shipping- so order with confidence.
As for the television itself, the picture is pretty amazing. Some say you can't really tell the difference between 780 and 1080 with televisions of this size, but comparing it to my roommates television of the same size, mine looks clearer and crisper.
A good but not great set
My own opinion of the 560 is that it's an excellent looking TV but one that grinds right along the border of "minimal" and "cheap". The set has been scaled back significantly compared to past models in response to the advance of LED, which seems poised to become the default backlight technology of LG's TV lineup. If you have simple tastes and just want a good looking set for gaming and occasional movie watching, the 560 is a great value and will perform well enough.
There isn't much special beyond a good picture with a 1080p resolution.
The LG 42CS560 is a great model for what you pay for. It is cheap, and also has a good picture with a 1080p resolution. There isn't much special beyond that. The screen size at 42 inches makes this a very versatile TV, which can be used in many places as a main family TV, or as a secondary bedroom TV. Many people who bought it felt that it also made a great gift for someone looking to upgrade from an old CRT TV.
Fantastic TV ... with only one possible issue
The picture is beautiful after calibration, and with energy saver mode turned off, obviously. I found that the TruMotion feature works under certain conditions, mostly for TV broadcasts. For DVD and Bluray, I had to turn it off - because, even though it did seem to make the image appear sharper (especially for DVD material), I just couldn't get used to the SOE. Suddenly, the Mentalist characters looked like they wandered onto the set of Days of Our Lives. Just too distracting.
The bundled Magic Remote is refreshing and intuitive
We enjoyed our time spent with the LG 42LS5700 (MSRP $1,099). This mid-range LG turned out to be a very good smart TV, complete with a great contrast, respectable color consistency, and a low power consumption. Surely this TV is worth your hard-earned $1,099, right?
Don't let the MSRP fool you: the LG 42LS5700 can be found for as little as $700 online. We think a TV that produces a good picture and has LG's robust smart platform is worth the MSRP. For $700, though, this is a deal.
Excellent High Value LG Smart HDTV!!
This LG looks, sounds and works the way you WANT it to!
At the current price, the LG 47LM6200 represents one of the very top values in HDTV today. Read my caveats at the very end of this review, but otherwise you just can't beat this TV for the price. IT currently resides in the master bedroom , connected to a Fios HD DVR and Oppo Blu Ray player but could easily be the center of ANY living room entertainment center or home theater set-up.
The best 3D experience in the business
With so many features done well on this TV, it is hard to not recommend the 32LM6200 (MSRP $650). There is a robust Smart TV platform, industry-leading 3D, and yes, a good quality picture. LG has done a fantastic job at creating a mid-range TV that is feature-heavy and a solid performer.
The design of this TV will catch the eye of many consumers: it is bold and futuristic, and those adjectives apply to the motion controlled remote, too.
Great tv for the Price!
Sears had the best price for this size tv after I checked around. I was impressed with the service I got there as well. Panasonic is a quality name and is tops for trouble free manufacturers for tv's, and this one has a great picture for my needs. Since I got an HDTV cable box the image is crystal clear. I also think the sound quality is great. It's not a fancy tv with LED or 120MHz, or wifi capabilty, but those tv's cost a lot more. But for a non-LED this screen is thin.
Fairly wide, glosst black bezel with some metal and acryllic accents
The TC-L42U5 is a 42" CCFL (fluorescent) back lit LCD television that is aimed at putting a 1080p LCD panel at a low price point. The U5 series is only available in the 42" size and it features a 60Hz, 1080p panel. It does not have 3D or any online features so it comes in at a budget price.
A narrow total viewing angle
The U5 is, hands down, a very bad value.
We've seen some amazing budget TVs this year. Panasonic's U50 and XT50 series comes to mind. Both are under $1000, and both are 50 inches.
By that logic, the 42-inch Panasonic U5 should be performing much better than it is with an MSRP of $599.
Built to conserve energy, which will help you save money.
With 3 HDMI slots, 1 USB and a PC input, you will be able to do many things with this TV. It gives you one of the best-looking pictures on the market with 1080p for the price of 720p. You can enjoy any type of program the way it is supposed to be viewed. If you want a TV for a reasonable price that will perform better than most, the Panasonic Viera tc-L42U5 is one of the best choices.
I've had this tv for a month now and am very impressed. once i shut off the 'smooth motion' it got rid of the 'soap opera' effect in the picture, and now looks fantastic. good sound for a hdtv, but if you want thumping bass, use an external system. the menu and settings are easy, although i'd like to see a quicker way to change picture modes (movie,sports,etc). the internet apps are nice, and the tv has very good wireless reception, full bars and >15mbps from across the house in another room...
Really great tv. Perfect size for my office/studio. Picture quality is excellent. I calibrated the tv using settings I found with a quick google search. Sound is ok, but as with most flat screens it lacks a really impressive on board audio set up. Xbox 360 games look incredible. I've been playing Skyrim and Battlefield 3 and am blown away by the picture. I fired up amazon prime (through Viera Cast) and watched Troll Hunter in HD.
Better black levels and Contrast
The E5 series is a mid-tier line of LED back lit LCD televisions from Panasonic for 2012. It is another line that shows Panasonic's commitment to larger and more feature rich LED TVs going forward. The TC-L37E5 has a 60Hz 1080p panel that uses Panasonic's 180 Back Lack Scanning for increased motion smoothing and it has access to Viera Cast, Panasonic's Smart TV online feature.
