1 out of 5 eggsGreat pains dealing with LG Tech Services

Pros: Update: The TV picture is still great.

Cons: I still have issues with the sound bar. The optical cable and sound bar were replaced. An LG service man came to my house and replaced the main board inside my TV. But nothing resolve this intermittent audio issue from my sound bar. It seems that LG is giving me the run around and refuse to take back the TV and give me a full refund. This is very unprofessional from a large company like LG. Buyers beware. Their guarantee is worthless. Your better off buying a TV from a street vendor with little change of a warranty. I have to see how far up in management I can get to in order to resolve this issue. Also note that their customer service was very rude and obnoxious with me at the start of a conversation.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat Picture, but faulty sound issue

Pros: The picture on the screen is excellent. The picture is so sharp that I can see the small ad text on the bottom of the screen. The colors is amazing especially on the planets shown on the science channels

Cons: My major complaint is the sound. The sound from the speaker is somewhat high pitch with very little base which is understandable considering the flatness of the screen, The solution from LG is to throw in a sound bar. Great idea, but there is a problem. The sound from the sound bar is about average, but the issue is during a cold start power on. From the start, the sound bar worked great with no issues. After a week, I get no sound from the bar after I power on the TV(The TV was off for a day before this). Since this is a repeatable issue, I played with it enough to isolate the issue is in the sound bar. When I have the sound issue present, I first turned off my HD cable box and I turned it back on. Still no sound. When I turned the TV off and turn it on again. I get sound. I waited for the next day to repeat the test. When the no sound issue happened again, I disconnected and reconnected the optical cable. Still no sound. I remove the power connection to the bar for 30 sec and then reconnected the power to the bar. I get sound. The issue seems to be in the bar (may still be in the TV). I called LG for assistance, but their troubleshooting path leads to nowhere. Unfortunately, I threw all of the shipping materials out thinking that a week test is enough. I was wrong. Unfortunately, I am stuck will this issue. It is important to note that when I use the TV's internal speaker, that sound comes on reliably.

Other Thoughts: I hope LG comes to the rescue with this issue. I am an Engineering Professional that did all the research before I brought this TV. Also, I was told how great LG TVs are. I hope they stand by their product and help me find a solution this sound issue.

4 out of 5 eggsLG 47LN5790-UI

Pros: The Television has a great picture and it is easy to set up, this is my third LG television and never had a problem with any. The sound bar is OK, not the greatest, but it works for the room size as I’m using it in an office setting.

Cons: The television IS NOT Wi-Fi capable, it is Wi-Fi ready. YOU NEED to attach a wireless dongle to one of your USB Ports. I hardwire my TV to my network, but it limits the applications, as some of the applications are designed for a wireless connection, thus the reduction of one egg.

Other Thoughts: If you will not have the capability to hardwire the TV to your network, I recommend the purchase of a USB Adapter. You can purchase the LG AN-WF100 Wi-Fi USB Adapter from Newegg for about 40 bucks or go to the LG site and pay around 60 bucks, but it would have been nice to know the type of adapter before I purchase the TV as I could have ordered them together.
Another option to connect the TV to your network will be to use your electrical cable as a transfer medium by using an adapter such as the Panasonic BL-PA300, but this will be seen by the TV as being hardwire and will limit some of the built in applications.

4 out of 5 eggsLG 47" 1080p TruMotion 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV

Pros: Don't get me wrong - the TV itself deserves 5 stars! I knocked one egg off because of the misleading information on newegg! See other thoughts for details.
Pros: The TV has has great picture quality, awesome refresh rate (true 120 HZ), blacks and colors are great out of the box. SD and HD look awesome! Great viewwing angle as well. Much better than my 40 inch Sony Bravia.
Sound bar is OK and adds life to the mediocre inbuilt TV speakers. The sound bar is definitely not comparable to a 5.1 or more systems but it does a decent job.
The TV is smart. It has a bunch of apps and you can install additional apps as well. Netflix works well and the Youtube app doesn't hang as in Sony. There is a functionality to sink it with a mobile device and it should play stuff from the device on the TV. I'm yet to test this after I get my wifi dongle (see other thoughts),
Price - absolute steal at the current sale price (+ no tax for US and free shipping). I did some research and at this price range and size - there's nothing better out there.

Cons: No magic remote - only standard remote.
No inbuilt wifi. The comment in the Q/A section from the guy who posted that wify is inbuilt should be deleted asap. The wifi dongle is sold separately.

Other Thoughts: The info on newegg is a bit misleading. First, the warranty is one year and not 30 days as stated here. You have one year warranty card with LG that comes with the TV.
Second, wifi is not in built. You need to purchase an LG wifi dongle separately The Q/A section should be more controlled and such misleading answers (like the one from Christopher) should be deleted. Out of the box, you can get a network only with a wire.
Overall, I'm happy with the purchase and would recommend this product without a doubt.
