I love this TV
The smart: while waiting for the cable modem to reboot, I clicked on settings, and the TV connected to my wireless network faster than a new Mac does. A click on the "smart tv" remote button, and I was in business. The YouTube app connected easily with my iPad, so I was instantly able to play videos I bookmarked. The TV software then remembers the videos you've recently played so you can go back to them easily.
Excellent Value/Price vs. Quality Offering
The 42 inch 42LN5700 is a great value piece if you want that great LED edge lit backlighting from LG and tons of features sans 3D at around $650. And since plasma TVs are not produced in the 42 inch size range anymore this is a standout in terms of quality and value for 2013/2014.
If your looking for a great gaming tv, look no futher
I purchased this tv about 2 weeks ago as I saw on avsforums.com that a few early adopters were really talking this tv up. I gotta say that i'm 100% satisfied with this tv. I purchased the 32" to use as an office gaming tv, as well as a monitor for my macbook pro. In both cases, it performs extremely well. First of all as a gamer, its hard to find a tv in todays times that has low input lag. While I dont have a testing device, I can tell you that this tv has very little input lag.
The LG 42LN5300 offers a stimulating price for those wanting to save money on that second or third TV or for those who want decent quality but dont want to pay up for lots of features. If you just want to watch TV on with a quality picture and not have many options this could be your set.
Gorgeous color, Sharp, clear image
While you could argue that the LN5300's 42-inch display is a bit too big for its 60Hz britches, we still think it offers serious value for the money. The TV's sharp image and vivid color output provide an enjoyable viewing experience for a seriously low price. The poor audio performance, and affinity for jitter gave us pause, and those looking for a broader feature set would do well to consider the previously mentioned Vizio E420i Smart TV.
As always, LG delivers!
LG has come through again! I already have a 42" LCD HDTV and wanted a smaller one for my "man cave". Of course I ordered from Amazon and it arrived right on time, as always is the case with Amazon. This 32" model delivers a HD picture using the entire screen. LG's are the easiest on the market to set up every single adjustment you might want to make. This one is a little newer, and has even more adjustments.
Solid picture performance from CCFL backlight screen.
LG has mostly moved to LED back lighting in their LCD televisions but there are still a few lines of CCFL (fluorescent) back lit LCD models like the CS560 series. The 32" 32CS560 has a 720p, 60Hz LCD panel with flurescent back lighting but few other features.
You can count on quality performance that will last for years.
When comparing other TVs in this price range, this is the one that stands out from the rest of the crowd. It is loaded with great features and shows an accurate and crisp color display. The setup is easy and the value for the money is overwhelming. One other interesting feature that this TV has is the ability to swivel from one side to the other.
You're going to need a narrow screwdriver that is quite long to get the TV stand assembled.
Can display near-realistic image quality.
The LG 32CS460 LCD HDTV is one of LG's lower tier brands. It is the only model in the CS460 series as of writing this review. But it's not a TV without amazing capabilities as shown here. In online ratings, the CS460 earned 3.5 out of 5 stars.
So this LG model is neither terrible nor perfect. It's slightly higher than average. It also awarded with a 2.8 Greenpeace policy rating. As stated earlier, this LG TV is affordable and was discounted by some stores.
Great Value... but some minor disappointments
Great picture (be advised that Dish TV, Direct TV, etc. all compress the HD signals - so to get a proper view of the picture, either get the HD from a Blu-Ray disk or an antenna - over-air HD is not compressed, so it looks much better). Most TVs with this kind of picture are much more expensive... hence the great value. I also like the remote and the navigation. Hooking up a Blu-Ray/DVD player and Roku was pretty standard.
Amazing TV for the price!
Being that this is my first HDTV, I can't really compare it to another specific one, but from what I have, it's just been amazing. The quality of the picture on the screen is crisp and bright, the volume adjusts very well, they even have a setting where it dims if you have the tv on at night in the dark (I sometimes fall asleep with the TV on so that helps). For the price it's a great bargain, I was in WalMart the other day and they had another 32 in. for the same price but a no name brand.
The viewing angle is wide for an LCD TV
There's not much to dislike about the LG 42LS3400 (MSRP $719). It doesn't have many ports and the audio is average, but it makes up for these shortcomings with its great color accuracy, wide viewing angle, and bright white levels. This TV even did well with motion performance and it doesn't have any fancy enhancement features like "TruMotion" or "CineMotion."
The MSRP may say $719, but you can easily find this LED for under $500 online.
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.
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.
