    Style Name: TVSize: 39-inch Verified Purchase
    I saw this tv at my local Brandsmart and was impressed; it had perhaps the best picture among standard LED tvs. An LG rep said the LB5800 series use an IPS panel with full array LED backlighting. With help from another Amazon member, we were able to determine the 39" uses an MVA panel, while the 32" uses an IPS panel (see comments). On LG's claim of full array LED backlighting, I assume it's valid, perhaps without local dimming as found on the LB6300 series.

    I wanted a large screen gaming monitor to sit on my desk. This tv is pretty much all screen so no wasted space. Legs are sturdy, metal with plastic finish. Powered off, the screen is dark and not quite glossy but not quite matte. Colors are bright and vibrant, blacks are deep, screen is bright and uniform.

    As a monitor, the 60hz panel works because input via HDMI from seems limited to 60hz anyway, meaning I could not overclock the 60hz refresh rate using several methods. I suggest not getting hung up on advertised refresh rates though, screen is fast and blurring is minimal even during gaming. TV does have a gaming mode which turns off video processing. While I can't assign a value to input lag, I can say this tv feels more responsive than my old Samsung with no gaming mode. Desktop text is fairly sharp, but doesn't compare to an IPS 1900x1200 monitor.

    I find these settings optimal for monitor/gaming:

    backlight = 80
    contrast = 80
    brightness = 50
    color = 50
    sharpness = 10
    picture mode = game
    energy saving = off

    On general TV functions, menus are easy to navigate, Netflix streaming tuned in at HD with no buffering. Sound is okay, it's bottom firing, with some voice clarity lost behind the screen. Sound bar recommended for best experience.

    Style Name: TVSize: 47-inch
    i did not buy this from amazon, but i got it from Dell. I love amazon, but dell's deal was better at the time i got it.
    I can post picture of my invoice to prove i do own it, if anyone questions the validity of my review.
    I'm writing this review just to warns other of what i found out.

    As for the tv, it's good and a decent price for the features; looks nice and has all the basic functions. smart apps is great, netflix and hulu. All is well. Those things are pretty standard now so nothing big.

    on to the MAJOR FLAW.
    Started watching some movies, and i notice something strange. During scene transition from brightly lit to dark scene, the tv DIMS and BRIGHTEN; globally (the entire screen). It does this every time. It dims to the point where you can barely make out any details in the dark scenes. As you know with movies, details is everything in darken scenes. It's purposely done so for you to focus on the details.
    so first, i thought it was Energy-saving features. I go and it off, no energy-saving. IT still does it! No matter which input i'm using, irregardless of the source.
    I thought that was strange. So i googled LG TV Dimming, lo and behold… i'm not the only one. what the heck is going on.

    It turns out you CAN'T TURN IT OFF!!
    visit this forum/link it's a large and highly respected forum for all things audio and video

    This "feature" is hardwired into the firmware. It's been there for all LG tv's since 2010 (from the date of user complaint)
    It's seem LG done this to either be able to "claim" higher contrast ratio or better energy-efficiency. Either way, it completely ruins picture details in dark scenes.

    1. rename your HDMI input on the tv to PC.

    Style Name: TVSize: 39-inch Verified Purchase
    I thought about giving it 5 stars,but i had to be honest with myself.The TV is a very good buy.Price wise and picture with many nice features.
    It picked up internet WI-FI No problem.Has two great EASY BUTTONS foR Quick menu ans settings on remote controller.It even has an
    My Apps. easy button .
    So what is the problem?
    Well it does not come with an Easy set up manual .I figured it all out but because i have heavy background in electronics.
    I like the control remote picture is awesome and parental control features.Easy to set picture settings.I don't recommend you use the
    Energy saving picture mode unless its in bright area.(Dims light according to ambient light)
    I'm over 60 my eyesight did not like it.
    All in all im very happy,just right size for bedroom (The bigger the screen the further away to view for best performance and optimal eye care}
    I recommend minimum 6 ft for this one.
    1080pi is great no fuzzy corners.
    Netflix and others work great.
    I say buy it.
    From leg to leg its 34 inches and width off each leg is only 9 inches so if you have a drawer or cabinet thats more than
    35x12 you're fine
    recommend you get the 2 yr trade insurance,very affordable ,i did.

    if you're looking for a gamer tv,be real no 60hz will satisfy you.this is a good tv/netflix etc. tv just that,no more no less.
    no easy instruction set up manual for remote control and over all setting.
    you can get pdf on web sight.
