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.

Comments about LG 47" Black 1080p LED HDTV:
Like all the other posts, we had the TV for just over a year and it went black. Warrantee or not, if LG knows these TV's are failing like this, they should do something to compensate.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Loved it until the HDMI ports failed
The picture quality is great and we were very very happy but after less than two years of little use (it is in our vacation home) neither of the HDMI connections work. HDMI 1 stopped working and less than a month later HDMI 2 died as well.

LED Backlight went out 14 months after a purchased it. This is the second LG TV in last years that died on me. Luckily, I purchased a extended warranty.
LG 47" Piece of garbage
This TV died after 1 year and 360 days... DO NO BUY THIS
bright and clear
from Wisconsin, USA
Very clear and bright screen. Always smooth with no motion blur. Watching movies is a pleasure on this tv. It doesnt have alot of un-needed plastic around edge of screen. And the remote also works with my LG bluray player. The only thing that it could use is another hdmi. Otherwise, wonderful.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I have zero problems. I would recomend this TV.
from Midland, TX, USA
This is a great TV. Picture is wonderful. I would buy again.
GREAT!!â€¦.. for 2 years
I got this TV for christmas in 2011 and have gotten a lot of use out of it. I've had no issues or problems with it for 2 solid years. Now, only a couple months into its 3rd year of use, dead pixels are appearing in various spots around the screen. It's extremely irritating and very distracting. I noticed the first one about a week ago and have already found a couple more spots. Once you find them, it's impossible not to notice them. I'm very disappointed. It's something I can live with, but not for long if it continues to get worse. I could have easily given it 4 or 5 stars across the board if I hadn't run into this problem.
This tv suits my very needs
Found this TV to be perfect in size for my rec room. Has good clarity, color and sound. Have had this TV for 1 month now and am enjoying my TV watching in luxury ! It was very easy to assemble and to carry into the house too as it is light. It also fit easily into the car back seats. It is all preprogrammed so it was easy to set up the channels with the remote. It comes with a DVD which gives you online instructions too.
This tv has an excellent picture.
from Rainelle, WV
We love the picture on this TV. The clarity is exceptional! We have cable and it is comparable to HD. The menu settings take a little getting used to but other than that, We love it. And once again, we were amazed at the picture on this TV.
from Oregon, USA
Pros: nice picture, good price, thin, narrow bezel border around screen. Cons: When wall-mounting, rear-facing ports (including hdmi) are awkward and hdmi require 90degree hdmi cables. Shiny front bezel has "waves" in it in certain light, like the plastic is being distorted. Nice tv for the price. Looks cool in most lighting.
