      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 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.

              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.
