Product Features


D.R.L. says:

Excellent Image, Sound, Features, and Value Amazon has provided an extensive “Product Description” (taken from LG promotional literature) that outlines the myriad of features available on the LN5700 series of Smart TV’s that became available in early 2013. There is no point in reiterating that list of features, so my review will focus on customer experience.* SET UP: It took no time at all for a non-geek like me to set up the TV and the internet features. As they say: just follow the instructions on the screen.* IMAGE QUALITY: I spent considerable time in a local electronics stores searching for the best buy in 42 inch smart TV’s (needed to fit into a cabinet, therefore the size restrictions). While there I surveyed other sizes of TV’s just to get an idea of quality of different brands. My overall impression: LG offers great quality for a reasonable price. Indeed, their new LN5700 series is a great value throughout the line of sizes available (32″, 39″ 42″ 47″, 50″, and 55″). Sizes 42″ through 55″ have TruMotion 120 Hz technology, which makes for great images during sports and action movies. The 32″ and 39″ do not have the TruMotion feature and operate at 60 Hz refresh rate. For those who prefer to turn off or adjust the impact of the TruMotion technology, that is easily done. The LED backlighting, the Picture Wizard II feature, and Full HD 1080p resolution provide an exceptional image (better than any of the other brands I compared to while in the store). Saturated (but not gaudy) colors, great contrast ratio, and sharp edge definition all contribute to a clear, crisp image. The LN5700 has good off angle viewing performance and still looks good at angles around 30 degrees off center, unlike so many TV’s that start to have the contrast degrade at 20 to 25 degrees. The screen is matte, rather than glossy to help reduce glare and reflections. There are a variety of pre-set color schemes you can chose from should you decide you like your images more vivid, etc.* SOUND QUALITY: Many purchasers will run the sound through external speakers or sound bar, but even if you just want to use the build in speakers you will be pleased. The set of stereo speakers are ported to the back and to the bottom of the TV. This allows you to adjust the sound for wall-mounting or table-top standing. Add in the six available “sound mode” options and an equalizer, and the TV produces entirely acceptable sound even without add-on speakers.* SMART TV: The CPU and GPU have been upgraded for 2013 in the LN5700 series making for rapid response in the multiple Smart TV / Internet features and for gamers. Reports are that the processor is 3 times faster than last years model, but I cannot make that direct comparison myself. The LN5700 has built-in WiFi, a built-in Web browser, and a wide range of Smart TV options including all the premium applications such as Netflix, Hulu Plus, You Tube, etc. No Amazon apps yet, but evidently they are planned for the near future. The Home Dashboard feature enables the TV to remember and list all the various applications you have downloaded and viewed on one convenient page. There is also a dedicated button on the remote to access it quickly. When you click on the Home option on the remote, displays a very thorough menu of options for Internet use, quick selections for some of the premium apps as well as a selection for just the Internet itself.* INPUT/OUTPUT: At the side of the TV there are three HDMI connections (one labeled HDMI/ARC and one labeled HDMI/MHL) as well as three USB In ports. At the back of the TV there is an H/P Out port for headphones, an Optical Digital Audio Out port, ethernet / LAN port, and a set of Component cable / AV ports.* REMOTE: The LN5700 is compatible with “The Magic Remote with Voice Command”, which is available as an optional. The remote that comes with the TV is fully functional and will be sufficient for most users (although it is not back-lit).* HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. The LN5700 series from LG is a great bargain if you want a great TV with LED backlighting with a plethora of features and you are satisfied with a non-3D TV. If you are looking for a 3D TV, try the LA6200 series, which is the upscale version of the LN5700.

NO AMAZON APP I just bought this TV last night, so I don’t have a laundry list of complaints or compliments. HOWEVER – I do not have cable or satellite – I only do digital antennae and internet apps. This is TV #3 – #1 is a Vizio with apps, #2 is an LG older model – I use with Roku. I was looking for Vizio, as I love our Vizio…but decided to go with this LG model because#1: similar price as vizio model we were looking at,#2 it has built n apps, (as does Vizio)#3 it has an internet browser (vizio does not),#4 we just bought an LG sound bar, and liked that all the LG things can be linked together.#5 1080/120hz (vizio model also had)So, I’m thinking that the two items that were different – especially that it has a web browser – was worth the extra $50 I spent for the LG. I really, really do like LG products – so it’s all good.ONE MAJOR PROBLEM FOR ME – NO AMAZON APP. I cannot access my instant videos that I watch through PRIME on this TV. I emailed LG and got a very fast response and here it is:I absolutely understand your concern, and apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced. Amazon will be supported later on, there is no ETA on when the update is going to be available.After looking at other forums online – this is basically the same response people have been getting since 2011. So, I’m not sure what’s going to happen.Anyway – I really wish I had known this before purchasing – not sure if I would have made the same decision, since internet apps is how we watch TV, and all the current and new releases are on Amazon, and I already subscribe to it.Thought you should know, in case accessing Prime is important to you too.
