Size: 47-inch
Update 7/6/11: Firmware update 4.0.11 adds hulu plus. This will be of interest to some users.

Nice large crisp picture
Huge number of picture adjustments
Low Power consumption
Includes Wireless Network Adapter that can act as a router
Viewing angle

Not many apps
Had to configure for best image quality for movies
Auto back light becomes annoying (disable it)
Some light bleeding is noticeable on black backgrounds with white text.

Bottom Line:
Nice TV. Remote is easy to use, controls are intuitive. It offers a huge number of picture adjustments for calibration purposes. Lots of inputs, and nice slim design.

The image is nice and sharp (and not overly sharp). Browse the internet review sites to find some values for setting image parameters up for best image quality (or at least a starting point). The "Cinema" mode isn't bad if you turn off the auto back light (this feature turns the back light off for dark scenes, but it is noticeable on this TV model as it is a global back light. The more expensive models have a localized back lights that might be less noticeable.

Power consumption with the back light at max is about 115 watts (nominal) and about 30 watts with the back light off (measured with my Kill-A-Watt). So even though this is a 46.9" TV, the power consumption is less than my older 32" LCD TV that used a fluorescent back light instead of an LED light. Plus it is a lot slimmer because of it.

Wireless network was really easy to setup. I plugged it in, entered my network settings, and was connected immediately. The software/apps are a little slow running, but the Internet stream seems fine (I only have a slow 1.5 mbps connection).

Size: 42-inch Verified Purchase
See my uploaded pictures. I selected this TV based on size and the good picture I saw on this model at Sears. Purchased from Amazon after price shopping. UPS delivered a slightly scuffed up shipping box. The shipping box said it had the AUSYLJR panel. I compared the LG web site contrast ratio to the two different Amazon stated contrast ratio and none agree. Installing the base with eight screws was easy. After my DW assisted me in carefully lifting the TV to the top of my dresser I was ready for the smoke test. But first I noticed a small factory nick on the frame under the protective sticky tape. One star deduction for this blemish. On power up the set went into a simple set up mode but I was stopped cold when it first wanted to scan OTA channels. I hooked up some powered rabbit ears and let it automatically do it's thing. Once that was done I switched the input to an HDMI cable from my cable box and all looked good. It was quite easy getting a WiFi connection. All I had to do was enter my Linky password. Then I clicked on Netflix and got an authorization message. Meanwhile the TV started updating its software which took maybe 10 minutes. After it rebooted I discovered that it erased my Linky password so I entered that again. Now for the Netflix test.

I selected the documentary Restrepo, hooked in my headphones and began the Netflix test. Immediately I was blown away by the video and audio quality I was watching. Trust me. It was outstanding ! !

Second day impression:

The few free LG apps are a joke.
The Facebook app is not very good compared to the Facebook PC web site.
The TV broadcast image seemed a lot darker than I liked so I turned off the energy saving mode which solved the problem.

Size: 42-inch
Picture quality is great. This is a matt screen and that's a big plus for me. Speakers/audio is acceptable. That's where it stops. The Smart TV and other features which were the main draw for me, are unsatisfactory and poorly executed.

The "Intelligent Sensor" to adjust pic brightness is a bit of a joke - it merely reduces it to the lowest level possible; nothing intelligent about that.

The Netflix streaming app works fine, and is pretty much the only one that works as expected; although it would be nice if LG had streamlined and standardized the menu choices for adjusting picture aspect ratio and video brightness presets (not available from within the app).

The YouTube app is complete garbage.

Hulu: I saw "Hulu" in a lot of the advertising materials but there is no app for it. You can access it via the Plex media server app, (which requires you to have the server running on your connected computer), but the menu steps you have to go thru to get to the show you want are so tedious I gave up, and continue to watch Hulu shows on my laptop. Much simpler. Which brings me to:

The BIG negative! The built in browser is useless without Flash. The LG brochure clearly indicates it does not support Flash Player 10 which is fine. That suggests it comes with an older version of Flash. It appears to come with Flash 9.x according to multiple version-check sites, but I haven't been able to get it to work, Even on LG or Adobe's site.

The menus for setting favorite channels are also tedious and not intuitive at all. There is an Add/Delete button on the Quick Menu - I haven't been able to figure out what it is supposed to do.
