  • A. I bought this TV, hooked it up, and then put it back in the box. My 42" LG 60Hz LCD TV I bought 5 years ago looks better then this piece of garbage. This is TV does not have a 60Hz refresh rate, as stated above, if you read the manual it says it in there. Don't waste your time if you're looking to upgrade the picture picture quality of your current TV.

  • A. This is a 120hz True Motion HDTV. LGs True Motion screen refresh rate is equal to the actual screen refresh rates unlike other manufacturers who hype their 60hz to 120hz with their own terminologies. Check this website (http://www.rtings.com/info/what-is-the-refresh-rate) as already suggested by someone else. It gives you a clear idea of what each manufacturer calls the screen refresh rate and what exactly is the actual rate. The page 29 of the manual says 60hz because all HDTV's can take in only a 60HZ quality but later interpolate to 120hz o higher. In reality all you need is 60hz. THis 60hz is all that will be displayed in any HDTV that is in the market as far as the input display freq is considered. Pls read this nice article that says all that you need is 60hz and nothing more - http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2379206,00.asp. Also as far as the specs are concerned it is given in the LG website though not mentioned in the products page. Search for LN5100 and click on it. Scroll down to downloads and you can get the specifications sheet in pdf and also the manual in pdf format. http://www.lg.com/us/support-product/lg-50LN5100# This is a great TV with amazing picture quality and a great sound though many audiophiles would want to hook up for Bass effects. Trust me you are getting a great TV for a equally great price and its well worth every penny. I have been looking out for HDTV for the past few weeks and after so much confusion , I finally narrowed this TV. I found out the specs after a lot a research and the net doesn't carry much info on this since it is a Walmart specific model. But it is mentioned in the LG website. Enjoy ur Holidays :-)

  • A. Discard what everyone else says. Do your research, and read this article. http://www.rtings.com/info/what-is-the-refresh-rate IT explains how 60Hz vs 120Hz are nothing but a marketing gimmic. They are Un-noticable to the naked eye, unless slowed down about 32 or 64 times. and mind well it is not the only thing that makes your picture quality better. There is Response time, Refreshrate, and more importantly the FPS and frequency of your input signal itself. If you see deterioration on your tv it is mostly because of your cable's signal quality. not your 60 hz or 120 hz tv. Also. take for example your tv signal is at 60Hz. and you are playing it on a 120hz tv, it will more than likely result in dither, distortion and burning of images. because then your TV is upscaling the signal and inserting frames that didnt exist in the video signal.

  • A. This is not 120hz. I spoke to an LG representative 30 minutes ago and he told me that the one sure-fire way to tell if it is truly 120hz is if there is a TruMotion option/menu within the picture settings of the tv. Obviously this tv does not have one so I assume it is false marketing by Walmart. Bravo, walmart! I will be returning my set in within the next days because I upgraded for size, not for necessity. These types of black friday Tv's are made exclusively for walmart by LG, BUT walmart goes directly to a third party manufacturer and slaps LG's logo on the back. what this means is that at this moment LG isn't saying whether the Tv is 120hz or 60hz but thats because they legitimately DON'T know yet…Walmart has not released the technical specifications yet…once again, bravo walmart! (this can all be confirmed because I had an LG representative explain this whole process to me for roughly 15 minutes and he concluded that if all else fails, a true 120hz tv will include the trumotion menu.) Chances are if its not there, IT'S (120hz) not there.

  • A. This is a 60 Hz model with 120 Hz Trumotion. According to LG, "TruMotion increases the standard 60Hz refresh rate—how often the image is rendered on the TV screen—which drastically reduces blur and yields crisper details. It’s a boon to all fast-action video, but most especially sports..." After a month of research, I have found LG TV's's to have pretty good picture quality and this is an amazing deal for the price. The only red flag for me is that this model number does not appear on the LG website. The LN signifies that it is a 2013 model (LM was 2012). But that may just mean this is a Walmart exclusive. It is not out of the ordinary that certain TVs be sold in certain stores. Costco and Sams Club usually have special model numbers. The bottom line is that the only way I wouldn't consider this TV was if you were someone who buys high end TVs on a regular basis or if all you watched on it were high speed sports or video games. Otherwise, it looks like a good deal. We are considering it for our daughter's play room.

  • A. I haven't seen this model in the store yet, but if you find a TV seller who has a LG LN5200 on display, the picture should be similar. This TV should perform similarly to any LG model that is 1080P with 60Hz. On paper, this is a string deal. Hope that helps.

  • A. For a low end TV it has a great picture. I am happy with mine. But then again my last TV was a 720P 40 inch Polaroid TV. There is a program in the menu to dial in an exact picture. It is a lot like the special feature that used to come on Pixar DVDs.

  • A. Bought it last night and it think it has a very good picture. Vivid colors, good viewing ranges. Sound works pretty good. Lack of inputs and not being able to find out if it is 60 or 120 refresh rate is the only things that seem off about it. From the picture though I would guess that it is 120 mghz refresh.

This is a great TV. It has got one of the best picture quality and good sound that is clear and loud. Audiophiles may want additional hook ups for the bass effect though ! Having gone through many reviews and looked out for HDTVs for many days I narrowed this one. Although there was no clear information or review on this particular model that made me more confused, I did spend hours on the net and finally found the specifications from LG website. This is a 2013 model though it is not mentioned in the products page as it seems this a special model for Walmart. There is no confusion regarding the specifications of this TV. This is a True motion 120hz HDTV which is actually a true 120hz screen refresh rate unlike some other manufacturer's gimmicked hz rates that say 120hz when in reality it is just 60hz. Just google out screen refresh rates and get to know about LG's terminology and the corresponding correct refresh rate. Pls check the specifications at the official LG page and search for LN5100. Scroll to downloads and you can get the specifications sheet in pdf and also the manual in pdf format. http://www.lg.com/us/support-product/lg-50LN5100# This is really a steal for the price Walmart gives it with the additional comfort of avoiding the Black Friday frenzy. Believe me this HDTV is the best money can get you but of course it doesn't come with all the whistles and bells of a higher priced HDTV. This is not a Smart TV though you can connect your Laptop or wifi Blu ray player or other streaming devices to access the internet. The picture quality and sound as I mentioned are excellent as I mentioned earlier and it is a slim TV. Worth every penny spent and yes this is a 50 inch model ! Hope my review was useful. Happy holidays :-)

So I recently bought a PS4 and was willing to upgrade froma 27" to 50". Picked this badboy up for 448+tax and brought it home about 10 days ago. Needless to say, the tv is great. here are the pros and cons as I see them. Pros: 1) 50" (HUMUNGUS) 2) Comfortably light, not the lightest in the market tho. 3) Has smartlink, which means when i turn on my ps4 my tv automatically detects a signal and turns on or off. 4) Has great sound for being a LED 5) easy to use, no fancy 'smart' tv features, which are also available in a 50$ dvd player. 6) 60Hz response really does not bother. I game on this and it is stunning quality. 7) GREAT PRICE ! ! ! BANG FOR A BUCK ! sub 500 and great TV. Cons: 1) Lack of smart tv features could be one, if you care about them (I dont) 2) More HDMI ports would be useful, but you can get a 5 way splitter for 10$ 3) Headphone or RCA outs would have been nice to hook up speakers. Overall score 10/10 personally. 8/10 comparatively to other competitors. Get it while you can, you wont regret it.

Iv'e had the TV for about a week so far. It is paired with a Altra Furniture Carson 48-Inch TV Stand. (Which looks very nice) So far, my first impressions are good. I upgraded from an old 52" RCA HD Projection that was dying. This was a huge upgrade for me. It did take me a little while to get the picture settings to where I like them. You can tell it's on the lower end of the LED's, but it's still very good for me. It seems to be an edge lit display. On certain scenes (Specifically dark scenes with more light in the middle) You can see some light bleeding through on the sides of the screen. It would probably measure out to be about a 2 inch fade coming out from the left and right sides. For the price this is acceptable to me and it is only on certain scenes. It's enough to notice if I'm looking, but I also didn't notice is right away. Sound is average for a TV, I use my own stereo system to it. My gripe is that the only audio output is an optical out. A lot of people will need to buy an optical to RCA converter to hook it up to a normal stereo. To conclude, I would say it depends on what your expectations are. If you can deal with not getting the shadows/lighting perfect, some occasional edge bleed, and lack of additional audio outputs then I think this TV is for you. At the price it's at now, it's still a steal. It still has razor sharp picture, great overall colors, and it's great for movies and gaming.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

Love this TV, the price cannot be beat. I'm just not sure it is 120Hz. I see 60Hz coming up on my screen. I know it has something called "TruMotion 120Hz" I'm just not so sure when this feature is working. Regardless, for $498, this LG TV rocks!

I purchased this set yesterday online and went to the store to pick up. Walmart didn't have one displayed so I couldn't see the picture quality before I bought it. While the price is great, it does come with some draw backs. This t.v. is not 120 hz it is 60hz refresh rate. I called LG and they said it was 120hz but when you look at the specification on page 29 of your owners manual, it clearly states 60hz. With that being said, I still hooked up the t.v. and checked it out. I am ok with the picture as long as I am watching HD channels, but my cable provider also provides a lot of channels that are not HD, and those channels are somewhat grainy to watch even using HDMI cable through dvr box. I like the picture from my old, old, tv better..I will call my cable provider Monday and see what they can offer to give a better picture before I decide to return the tv. I own a 32in LG and love it!!!I didn't have the same problems with it as I am having with this larger one...
