Posted this a month or so ago, but now it's even cheaper! VIP Price.

The LG 47LD450 gives you a top quality, 47 inch 1080p, screen at a remarkable price.

With its 1080p Full HD resolution, the 47LD450 is the perfect TV to complement your HD sources such as PS3, Blu-ray player and Sky HD. LG have already built an excellent reputation for their picture and, with the 47LD450, it's not hard to see why. A contrast ratio of 60, 000:1 hints at the deep blacks and realism of depth. What the figures can't tell you is just how natural the picture is against similarly priced rivals. There's also smooth motion with a super-fast response time of just 4ms and a wide viewing angle to ensure that you everyone in the room gets a good view of the action. In short, whatever you're watching will be crisp and detailed with superb resolution and the ideal brightness.

As usual, we would always recommend using a separate home cinema system with a TV of this size but if you do use the LG's built-in sound system you might be pleasantly surprised. Using an invisible speaker system with Clear Voice II the 47LD450 sounds crisp and precise. Furthermore, the 10w + 10w power output gives it enough drive to fill larger rooms, too.

In terms of connections, the 47LD450 has all the basics covered and a very useful USB, to boot. Twin HDMI sockets allow for the connection of 2 High Definition sources, such as an HD-TV box and Blu-ray. In addition to this, the 47LD450 boasts SCART and component connections for your analogue sources. The side-mounted USB socket is extremely useful for plugging in digital media devices and playing back video and pictures on your TV. Furthermore, the PC input makes this attractive TV the perfect complement to your home computer. Topping off the wide range of sockets is a digital optical sound output - ideal for connecting this LG 47 inch LCD TV to your home cinema for a useful upgrade in sound quality.

Featuring a gloss black, slimline surround and elegant stand, the 47LD450 looks as good as it performs. It's also less deep than many rivals making it look considerably less bulky whether wall or stand mounted. Thanks to the latest technology, it's also Energy Saving Recommended. For a 47 inch 1080p LCD TV with an impressive spec and smooth, good looks, the 47LD450 is hard to beat.

Says £499 on the website. I guess you have to use the link in the email to get that VIP price?
Hopefully I should receive an email soon as I do subscribe.

Oh, and I do believe this TV is 60 hz, not 120 hz.
I have 100hz on my Samsung, not sure I see the difference, also I've not seen 100hz for under £500 on any display before.
Fantastic tele for the price - could have done with more HDMI inputs though!
2 HDMI and 1 SCART input ?!
Surely that cant be right on a tv this size????
Sky HD box, blu ray player, XBox360 / PS3..... pass!

you can get HDMI auto switch 3 port for around £15
LG quality is not very impressive but this price is hot!
whats the wattage on this to see how much cheaper it is to run compared to the big plasmas as i know lcd is greener
Nice find OP, have some heat! I paid £650 for the 2009 equivelent model (47LH3000) around 8 months ago with the 5 year warranty, at £550 this newer model is a bargin in my opinion.
2 HDMI ports and 1 scart is a little light on the connections side of things but as a previous post mentioned these can be expanded upon for very little.
Does the USB 2.0 connection play divx/xvid files or is it for service use only? I realise they can be hacked but that would of course void any extended warranty purchased.
Been down the auto HDMI switcher route. Never again. My xbox360 and blu ray player need different colour and brightness settings to show the picture at its best, so one setting for the hdmi input is useless - every time I flicked the blu ray player on I had to turn the colour down and brightness up - nightmare. Splitters are always a compromise, and not one Id make with a 500 quid purchase. Not voting cold though as can't see the tv cheaper elsewhere, thus still a good deal for some, just not me.
Wow how do i buy it says 499
