No one has commented on this tv or it's quality/features. What is,it like compared to plasmas?
@ juice21 - not really mate - surely all those happy lg owners can't be wrong...one review says nothing.
I've not really seen many decent reviews. Digital versus are nigh on always spot on.

Most user reviews canny be trusted!

I'll pass judgement once I've seen the LG tv. I'm after a 46/47 or 50" led or plasma.....

Decisions are so hard!
Same here. I'm also after that size. Maybe we can help each other in our quest to find the right tv?
Sounds good :-)
For anyone interested, here's the Which review:

If you're in the market for an entry-level 32-inch TV, then the LG 32LS5600 might be very appealing. This aggressively priced set still packs in a Full-HD 1080p screen with LED backlighting and some useful features, and the only serious compromise is the lack of a Freeview HD tuner. If the 32LS5600 doesn't go wrong with its sound or pictures, then we might have a bargain on our hands. We ran this 32-inch set through our tests to find out.
Picture quality

We're happy to report that the 32LS5600 is a consistently good performer, but that's not to say that our testers didn't notice any problems. HD pictures suffer from occasional smearing and a greenish tint and we spotted some colour shifts and shadows around fast-moving objects, such as balls. With only a Freeview tuner, not a Freeview HD effort, you won't get the best from this set without an external tuner, PVR or Virgin or Sky box. However, there's plenty of detail, some confident colour handling and the overall impression is positive. It's a budget TV that doesn't look or perform like a budget TV.
Sound quality

If only we could say the same about the sound. There's very little bass to speak about, and we can't ignore the peaky mid-range or the levels of distortion and vibration in the TV cabinet. There's some clarity at the high-end, but also an uneven, fizzy tone.
Advanced features

The 32LS5600 has a fairly basic feature set but it does have one USB port, which will play Jpeg photos, MP3 audio files and Mpeg-2, DivX and WMV video files. There's also an ethernet port, and while this doesn't provide access to any internet services it does allow you to stream photos, music and video from PCs or devices hooked up to your home network, provided they're all compliant with the DLNA standard. We didn't have any problems viewing the files we tested.
Connectivity

Where most budget sets can only pack in one or two HDMI sockets, the 32LS5600 fits in three, with one easily accessible at the side. Meanwhile, you can find an RGB-capable Scart socket and phono connectors for composite and component video at the rear. The composite input uses the green socket of the component input, so you can't use both at the same time. Still, this seems to be one of the year's most popular space-saving/cost-cutting measures.

The side also houses the headphone socket, which mutes the speakers, and there's an optical audio output on the rear. This is particularly important on this set, as none of the HDMI ports support an ARC audio return channel. Two of the HDMI ports will work with a PC signal, and there's also a VGA connection for older laptops and netbooks.
Setup and everyday use

It's not that the 32LS5600 is particularly difficult to set up, but there's some odd terminology during tuning and retuning that might cause confusion for some users. New services have to be added manually - though there is a prompt - and not everything is as intuitive as it could be. This goes double for the long-winded on-screen instruction manual.

There are also some silly, basic ergonomic errors. The remote control is wide, angular and uncomfortable, with the guide and info buttons positioned too far away from the navigation keys. Some of the buttons are too small and too crammed together. The on-screen menus and the electronic programme guide (EPG) are nicely presented, but the use of transparent backgrounds can make them hard to read. Finally, the Now and Next view covers nearly half the screen, while not telling you what will be showing in the future.

Subtitles occasionally flash, but both these and audio description services work smoothly, with a dedicated button to select them on the remote control.
Power saving

The 32LS5600 is a frugal little set, using just 40.8W with our optimal settings and an impressive 27.1W with Energy Saving Medium enabled. In standby mode it uses a mere 0.23W.

Pros: Decent quality for the price, three HDMI inputs, network media streaming

Cons: Poor sound, no HD tuner, some issues with ease of installation and use
to both u guys above im the same been hunting for long enough but this site has actually put me right off as every time someone posts one the people that thing they know everything and start to find fault with the most trivial thing.
I'm looking for a 40 -42 inch led tv. Smart?? I have my play station so not bothered. 3d, loss on me. I went into currys and managed to get a LG and a Samsung placed next to each either other time see the picture difference. I like the LG. currys wouldn't move in price but you need to see them in person 1st then find a good deal here afterwards.
All tech has pros and cons. If that frightens you, you shouldn't be on a deals site.
You would have to be insane to buy this TV for £499, considering you can get the Panasonic UT50B 50" 3D + 5 YR warranty + 2 x 3D Glasses for £100 more at £599. Which would absolutely **** all over this budget TV.

Secondly you can get the much superior 3D version LG 47lm620T for again only £100 more at £599 from richer sounds.

This TV is a cheap budget telly, no reviews apart from the one that scores in at 2/5. Cold, ice cold deal.

What's the difference between the LG47lm620T and this one (LG47g40T) LG TV

Which one would you buy?

Not much difference between the two, picture quality wise i think they are the same/similar panels.

The 640T has built in WiFi, i would go with what ever you appeals to you more.

You can get John Lewis to price match the 620T with Richer Sounds, and get the free 5 year warranty + is £50 cheaper.

Or the 640T if your willing to spend the extra £50, which ive read doesnt suffer with some of the issues the 620T is reported to have.

Both excellent choices, i would lean towards the John Lewis 5yr warranty for peace of mind, plus if you get a dodgy one John Lewis has the best customer service possible, well in the TV world.

Personally if i was buying now, i would lean towards the Panasonic UT50B 50" 3D, as the picture quality is on a whole different planet compared to the LG's. But LG's passive 3D tech is an highly attractive feature (which i prefer over active 3d)
Edited by: "craterloads" 27th Dec 2012
Loved the LG 640T in currys, but 640t isn't available in John Lewis to pricematch, I am afraid

JL only has LG 620T, LG669T, LG670T in that range (6 series)
as mentioned on one of the other tv offers , with the freeview signal due to be turned off by 2018, I would think carefully before buying any tv without freeview HD.

@ craterloads - yes the panasonic ut50 is a great tv, but:-

1. It's got severe reflection problems

2. It has a lot of power consumption

1) Even with sunlight reflections (if you would class that as an issue) it miles ahead of this TV picture quality/reliability/build quality/warranty/features wise.
2) Is the extra £5-£10 per year, that much of a worry? Really

This TV is terrible, pointing out flaws in other TV's doesnt take away from the fact of how bad this TV is at this price of £499. At £300 maybe, yea its worth a punt.

Also as pointed out the much superior 620T and 640T are only £100 more expensive and are full 3D, include Freeview HD and are premium models. This is a cheap/budget model @ £500. Im shocked this has gone hot, site is going downhill.
And just to put a nail in the coffin, this Panasonic LED hotukdeals.com/dea…069

Craps all over this TV at a cheaper price, and with 5 Year warranty with John Lewis Price Match
Well, I have this TV in 47" and bought it just over a month ago from amazon. Its definitely got an IPS panel and the picture is great . very bright and excellent clarity especialy on HD. Its also nice to look at with a thin bezel and very thin aswell. Sound is not so good but to be expected from this size TV. No extra bells and whistles but it does its job fine. Good for gaming also, input lag is minimal when switched on to PC mode. Obviously no freeview HD etc but like I say its a good TV for those who just want a good picture with USB playback for movies etc.

Having said that, right now for £499 I would go for the the Panasonic L47E5B which I believe is also £499 from Richer Sounds at the moment in their sale with a free 5 year warranty, Very similar TV to this with no 3D and IPS panel but Panasonic make superior TV's to LG imo.

Tough one, Panasonic make better telly's than LG, but the LG has 3D, so go for the LG 3D one.

If I am not wrong, LG makes LED panels for Panasonic.
@ craterloads - I'm torn between the panasonic e5b led and the plasma UT50 you mentioned..any help and advice would be much appreciated to help me decide which one to go for.

I doubt it a 300W plasma is going to only cost £5-£10 per year more than the LED mate as it's almost 3 times the amount of power.

LED have a continuous power drain, but plasmas are varied, the power depends on what is on screen. So it is possible.
Sorry rev6 but that does not make sense. If an led tv has a bright scene, then the plasma too will have a bright scene...the only difference being that the plasma gas use more electric. That is why most plasmas are B or C and LED are rated A in energy efficiency.
Sure it makes sense. A plasma TV will use more power on a white screen than a black one, obviously more on white. An LCD/LED TV uses the same on both black and white, hense "variable"
Hi, hope you don't mind me posting. Looking for a TV and I know nothing about the current technologies. Looking for a 46-47" and looking to pay £400-£750 depending on what I can get. I watch mostly sport, American TV series and a few movies. Any advice or recommendation on a TV would be great - posting here as you guys seem to know what you are talking about. Not really interested in 3D and indifferent to Smart. Will be using it with Virgin Media HD so Freeview isn't really an issue.

Thanks
Chris go for plasma as that is best for sport

Sorry but i … Sorry but i disagree:-http://www.rtings.com/info/lcd-vs-led-vs-plasma/power-consumption-and-electricity-cost


You didn't read what we were talking about. I never said Plasma use less energy than an LCD/LED TV. You said there is no way it can only use £10-15 or so more a year because of the 300w rating. I told you that a Plasma uses varied energy, so the amount it uses varies on the screen brightness, colours, etc, and the max amount of power is 300w. The latter will use a constant stream of energy as it is not varied like the Plasma.
Again. I never said Plasma is more energy efficient, I only said that it uses varied power so it doesn't use as much as you may think.
It really does't matter if you believe me or not, it is fact.

Rev6, after reading up and doing some calculations, I have to say that your right mate, so I'm sorry. I have gone for the beautiful 50" Panasonic UT50 and although it's 315 watts, thats only about £10 per month based on 6hrs usage per, whereas an LED is about half that, but the quality of the this plasma far outweighs the crappy LED
