Just bought this beauty earlier tonight from my local Wal-Mart. Ive been shopping around for a while and thinking about tryna snatch up some black friday deal but ehhh, just decided i was gonna go with quality over a good deal.
Well that is pretty much exactly what I still received. This LG- 47" LED ultraslim(1.4") 1080P 120HZ tv greatly exceeded my expectations. Im a college student and really wasnt in the market for some 60-70" monster, and I love LG's quality of brand, just right up there with Samsung in my book, and just a tiny bit under Sony Bravia series.
For $598.00 + $69.00 for the 3 yr protection plan, you would have to be a sucker not to get this beauty. The picture quality is amazing! The 120Hz refresh rate means no more lagging and choppy blocks while watching your favorite NBA or NFL game, blu-ray movie, or Call of Duty or any other gaming system.
As for the sound, honestly I mine hooked up to a 7.1 Yamaha surround w/ sub so I turn the tv sound off completely.. Yet when testing out the sound I was blown away on the clarity, no echo, no vibration when turned up loud, no distortion, a very clean-smooth sound right out of the box.
As for the features, I rated Excellent 'cuz lets face it, its not a smart tv, and that not what I wanted. Theres a reason that this tv was $600 compared to the smart-3ds running about $800 to a grand. It does exactly what I want, and with my PS3 hooked up I dont have to worry about any Netflix apps, facebook, lets face it basically anything you can do with a smart tv you can do with your smart-phone, laptop.. and then tv wise, if you have an Xbox or Playstation to hook up with already have internet access and Netflix/Hulu Plus availability.
In conclusion, for $600, you would have to be a fool not to snatch this tv up right away for the holiday season, or whenever.. if this is the sort of tv youre looking for. Remember take into account how critical of your picture quality you will really be, because alot of people I know are just fine with their LCD tvs, so you can save alot more money that way, its just up to you.
If this sounds like the tv for you, do yourself a favor and go buy it tomorrow! youll be glad you did and smiling for days, goodluck getting out of bed in the morning though, this tv will get you hooked!
