Generally LG promote its smart TV product in their showroom advertisement that seems to viewers is 42LN5700 model smart LED TV it is only made for upper class computer savvy people in the society. But if interested buyer keenly notice the TV, it is as easy as to operate by villagers & old aged men in home too. 42LN5700 smart Light Emitting Diode TV saves money as it act to some extent like computer. 1) You only need a Wi-Fi router with modem/LAN to connect TV Wi-Fi to start browsing & as we 90% are not sotfware engg. We only need to check e_mail, facebook, site searching is enough for ordinary life which easily possible by 42LN5700 model TV. Not required to buy Laptop/desktop computer. LG smart TV buyers are double benefited with this feature. 2) Ready "App. box" saves time to find & play to choose program with Wi-Fi enable. 3)Picture -In - Picture option makes second viewer happy if the prime viewer busy with internet in TV screen. 4) USB read by TV is automatic & fragment songs/ movies separately for viewers to save time of leisure. 5) If you stop watching movie in middle. It starts at same point even you switch off LG Smart TV 42LN5700 is special feature to avoid irritation. 6) 10+10 watt sound is enough for home pleasant with nice twitter & possible bass effect. 7) No heat generation at back of LG 42LN5700 TV. 8) Only 17 Kg. weight that helps to carry in international flight with flight allowed weightage rule (1-23 Kg to max 30 Kg with a single passenger). I've some opinion to make more advance (not Cons):- 1) wi-fi password need to restore in TV automatically by option of users. 2) During net surfing screen minimize option should be added to save internet bites. 3) During net surfing screen brightness/contrast is not possible to control that effect eyes. This option must add to the TV Overall Features, Quality of pictures & app styles are splendid. "Lucky Gold makes Life's Good"

Of course a TV with these specs looks great. I had to turn off TrueMotion because it gives my wife motion sickness but the picture is crisp, the refresh rate is great. (The screen is very reflective tho so make sure to turn off your lamps). If the only thing you ever plan to do is watch TV, this would be great. Except, why would you buy a "Smart TV" if that was all you wanted? LG has made the worst possible decision starting some time in 2012 and continuing into 2013 models. They have abandoned the fabulous MediaLink app for SmartShare to view videos streamed from a DLNA enabled server such as PLEX or Windows Media Server. With this new interface, you can painfully navigate through a file system slowly and unresponsively. You no longer get any features supporting nice titles or screenshots or anything. It's like using an iPad for 6 months and then getting dropped into Windows 3.11. Please bring back MediaLink or at least give SmartShare the same featureset (and fire whoever designed it's disastrous interface).

Great TV Until it Goes Black
By Duchess Flux
from Asheville, NC, United States
Comments about LG 42" Black LED 1080P 120Hz Smart HDTV:
After a year the screen went black. After searching the web this has happened to thousands of people and is a known issue that LG refuses to fix. This seems to happen to everyone right when the warranty runs out. The repair shop estimate was more than the TV cost. I will never buy another LG television again. 42LN5700
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great TV for the price
from Kansas City, MO, USA
Great picture and features. I have used this TV as our main TV for viewing for over a year and have had no problems. Easy access to the applications and simple navigation with menus. Speakers are a little lacking, but we use external speakers for sound so no problem.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Best Smart TV Features out there
from Grayslake, IL, USA
I bought this TV in Jan 2014 for its smart features. I did an in depth comparison with all the sets this size, and was not disappointed in this TV. I especially like being able to link to my computers and show all the family pictures located in multiple spots.
Love all the features this TV has
from Shelby Charter Township, MI, USA
From the day this Tv was installed in my home I cannot believe how many new features I find on it.The sound and clarity are excellent also. Good Job LG
from Dominican Republic
Love this TV great image quality and gorgeous design, the only con. i have is the firmware cant be updated from 4.00 to 5.00 and don't know if that for my country or for the TV version i have.
This tv is perfect for me - low energy use, good internet for Netflix, nice screen and picture, and a really good price. Overall thumbs up!

Paired this up with a Smart Wireless Router and together the two work fantastic.
TV is great, but the sound could be better.
from Ballwin, MO, USA
Picture is great, HD is awesome. The apps are easy to set up and use. I never had a TV that didn't have to be hard wired to cable, internet, etc. but this one works perfectly everytime.
Can't beat the performance of this TV!
from Bucktown, PA 19465, USA
This is DEFINITELY the best buy of TV out there. Picture is awesome and surfing the net, and all the features are terrific. We are thoroughly pleased with our first LG - and will look at their larger ones shortly due to our experience with this one. Thumbs up LG!!!
