This review is from: LG 50" 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV 50LN5200
Pros: Cheap (Refurb for $500)
It looks like new (One came with the factory plastic, the other didn't have the plastic / some minor scratches, but both look like new).
They both arrived in proper packing, with foam protecting the edges and paper filling up the sides.
They both turned on and set up very quickly on HDMI
Cons: Ah, do expect it to only come with the bare essentials and the parts will be tossed in the box randomly. We had to dig in the box to find the TV stand parts.
Other Thoughts: We have this running on HDMI from a cable box.
PC works fine at 1080p.
Color is a little washed out, but normal for a cheap TN panel. Plus, I'm comparing it to the old Plasmas (Which murder these on color quality). The good thing is that all of the LG TVs (We bought four 42", two 50", and even the four existing plasmas), use the exact same remote.
The remote had the batteries already installed, which is a plus to me, but that varies.
The VESA mounts are 400mm x 400mm, and we have it mounted using Rosewill RHTB-11001 mounts. It barely fits the bracket.
The TV is pretty light...it weighs the same as the 42" panel we bought. I'm not sure how or why it weighs less. For sure, both the 42" and the 50" LG TVs we bought weigh half as much as the existing LG 50" plasma TVs).
This has two HDMI, one on the back, one on the side. If you are using tilt, watch out for clearance on the HDMI cable. It might be holding up the tilt and you will need to add in spacers to make it clear.
Pros: They work
Sleeving is nice
Cable is thick
Connectors are high quality
Comparable to the CAT6 Tripp Lite Cables I bought from here
Other Thoughts: I bought 20 as patch cables, and they all workREAD FULL REVIEW
