I researched LED HDTVs for weeks before committing to a purchase and did not originally choose the 47LS4500. After experiencing problems with my other choice and returning it, I decided to give the LG a shot since my old LCD (of 5 years and still kicking) is an LG. I couldn't be happier with the 47LS4500 after fine-tuning the settings for my viewing environment and complementing it with a behind-set LED bias lighting kit. Pros: * LED edge-lit with an awesome 4,000,000:1 contrast ratio. * Unbelievably thin at only 1.4" deep. * Beautifully sharp and clean 1080p HD picture. * Good sound from the built-in speakers. * Incredibly affordable! Cons: *Only two HDMI ports. * Ports face directly out back, versus facing out the side, making it difficult to wall-mount.

Ok, so unfortunately I had to return my first set back to the retailer because on the third day, hundreds of horizontal gray lines appeared on the entire screen on all inputs, I think due to poor shippers handling. Regardless, the situation was taken care of. For now, the new set is great. Great brightness, amazing picture, size to money ratio is great, just slight cloudiness on black screens due to edge lit design. Also, my biggest concern is with the LACK of TRUMOTION setting. I see no where to adjust whether TruMotion is on or off... and for a 120hz television advertising TruMotion, it sure seems like it isn't any better than a 60hz since I still see motion lag when playing games. I know in the past LG TV's had an option to turn the setting on high and you get that really crisp clear "Soap Opera Effect," unfortunately this set does not even come close to producing it. I loved turning that on when watching certain fast movies/sports/gaming, now I can't even get that anymore even though Customer Service Reps say it is always on when clearly (or should I say unclearly) it is not and there is still alot of motion blur. I know alot of people complaining about the same thing, so hopefully LG realizes this ASAP and addresses the issue like with their LM series mishap accidently leaving TruMotion out of their firmware for those TVs. Until then, those are my only Cons. Again, great bare minimum LED LCD for the price with an excellently lit picture, just wish TruMotion had a setting to actually turn it on or off as having that clear fast picture was my number one concern when deciding on TV's.

Great, low cost TV
By Rebel Cat
from London, United Kingdom
More than happy with the picture quality which is great for the cost. Where the price affects it is perhaps the sound quality which is not great and it requires a sound bar or supplementary system if you want decent audio. This wouldn't stop me buying it however. Great product for a reasonable price.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The screen started getting dark areas and totally went black after only 2 years of using
from Ohio, United States
Model Number 47LN5400 - Manufactured Sep 2013 - S/N 309RMBWD0453 - Died 29 January 2016. Has sound - picture has left the building. Can't believe such a highly rated item would go belly up in such a short period of time. The TV went directly from its box to the tv stand - never bumped, dropped, or jostled. Will NEVER own another LG product if this is an indication of LG quality.
Trash after 2 years
from Rhode Island, United States
I purchased this TV and was very happy with it , then out of nowhere the backlight went ! Just shy of its 2 year birthday! Brought is to a repair shop and was told it's not worth fixing ! I'm so disappointed! I'll never buy another LG product again !
Was great while it worked
from Tennessee, United States
but surprise, surprise the LED back lighting went out 1 year and 2 months after purchase. Just out of warranty. I've now had 2 LG TV's die due to hardware problems.
A worthless TV, unrepairable
from Eustis, FL, United States
I purchased this model in the fall of 2013. I worked fine for 15 months then the video went out. Finally, after months of trying to get it diagnosed, I find out it can't be repaired. LG makes no parts to repair this model.
Great TV until it falls over on it's face
from Charlottesville, VA, United States
My cat got friskie and knocked the satellite receiver off the shelf pulling the TV over on its face. The screen hit the corner of a foot stool and it was all over for this TV! The screens are EXTREMELY fragile! That's my only complaint. The replacement is bolted down with the receiver directly under it. NO CAT ACCESS!
from Charlotte, NC, United States
Like many others here, my panel has developed large black 'ghost' areas after 12 months of ownership that are getting worse by the day. DONE with LG...way too much money for junk like this. Wishing I kept the box and receipt, I would demand my money back...might try to anyway
