And if you want sports and rapidly action to be as a crisp as they are thrilling, TruMotion 120Hz practically loses the blur and keeps the sizzle. The 47LK520 1080p LCD Television brings you each along with the other superb functions that make LG TVs a thing improved.
I previously purchased an LG 42LD550, employed it for a handful of months and was fairly content with its excellent, but the 42" screen size was a tiny too little for my living space, so I decided to get a larger Television rather. The LD550 has far better capabilities than the LK520 -- its net application was one particular thing that attracted me, but it demands an adapter which does not come with the Television, so I under no circumstances got to test it. I guess I do not require this feature anyway, so I returned it and bought the 47" LK520, at the similar cost --- it was on sale on Amazon for about 7 hundred.
This model came out in March 2011, and I placed the order in April. I guess considering it is relatively new, so I had to wait four-6 weeks for the item to be shipped.
So soon after waiting patiently for over one month, my Television finally came. I was expecting the guys from the shipping corporation to open the box and let me check the Television, just like what they did when I bought the other LG model. I was surprised when they told me they couldn't open the box, and that I need to open it on my personal, and preserve the box for a year in case I desire to return it. This sounds a little weird, but I signed the delivery sheet anyway.
It only took a few minutes to assemble this Tv. My brother and I laid the panel on my sofa bed with the screen facing down, and secured the base/stand with a couple of screws. It looks like the stand was created of some low-priced plastic. I hope it is a lot more sturdy than it looks.
This Tv has a uncomplicated, sophisticate design. I like the matt screen and the glossy black frame. There is a little blue light on the lower correct corner when the Television is on. Althought the remote control is painless to use, the style looks boring and low cost, some buttons/capabilities appear like a duplicate to me. But I guess it is not a major deal, as lengthy as it operates.
There are a variety of sound modes you can pick out from. It was set to "standard" by default, and the volume was low, but it was considerably better when I switched it to "music" or "cimema". I also turned on the "surround sound" feature. More than all I am happy with the sound superior.
I've had this Tv for about two weeks now, at very first I was impressed with the picture quality -- it is crisp and clear, and the color looks incredibly nice, just like the LD550 model. I set the picture mode to "Cinema" --the "standard" mode is a bit too vivid for my sensitive eyes. Of course you can make and save your personal picture mode by adjusting the brightness, color, and contrast, etc. But 1 day I noticed the brightness on the Tv screen altered suddenly --- it went darker, then just after a though it went bright again (looks comparable to when there are rolling clouds in the sky on a sunny day). I did not turn on the "inteligent sensor" and I feel the lighting in my room did not transform. I did not have this challenge with the LD550 model. I am not certain if I got a defective item or what. Appropriate now I give this Television a 4 star, and hoping there is an hassle-free fix for the brightness problem. I'll test it for a couple of a great deal more days and make a decision whether I will need to call LG, or return it....
UPDATE: I found out the reason that my Tv would suddenly go darker is due to the fact I had the "Engergy Saver" on (it was set to "Auto"). So whenever the sensor in the Tv detects a transform of lighting in the space, it'll adjust the screen brightness automatically. Occasionally the screen goes so dark I can hardly see. I am not confident how a lot power it can save by doing this, but I get it annoying to me, so I turned the feature off, and the issue solved! I am glad I do not have to return this Television. I am pleased with my purchase so far.
I have had this Tv for only a couple of days, but it appears to be specifically what I wanted. The LK520 LG model is extremely related to the earlier model LD520 (highly rated), except that the dynamic contrast is apparently a bit improved for the LK520(150K to 1 vs 100K), but I suspect that may possibly not be that substantial.
It has sufficient inputs (HDMI, component, and so on), and outputs, although I still wish these new HDTVs had a normal stereo output (ie., 2 RF outputs) so I could use them with my old amplifier. The LK520 only has 1 optical digital audio output. Still, the sound from the LK520 speakers is surprisingly robust, although most will probably want much more to complete the residence theater encounter. The LK520 also has a USB port, but I have not utilized this however. The specs say you can connect your external USB devices for JPEG photos or MP3 files. (Note, this model does NOT have any internet connection capabilities--even so you could hook this up to a BluRay DVD player that has this capability, if you want it).
I hooked up my cable box via an HDMI cord, and the LK520 delivers a clear HD picture and does well with frequent SD channels also. I hooked up the Tv with component inputs from my oldish DVD player, and it looked incredibly very good. (Some day I will get a BluRay, so I can see even more pores, I guess, on close ups...).
The LK520 has 120 Hz, so if you watch a lot of sports, this may well be necessary (I don't). So possibly the 60 Hz LG LK450 may possibly be OK for you, and save you 60-80$. Still, note that the LK520 has a slightly higher dynamic contrast compared to the 60 Hz 42 inch LG LK450 (150K vs 100K).
The weight is only about 35 lbs, so it is reasonably uncomplicated (if a bit awkward) to carry about. Also, the screen does not seem to have any critical reflection issues in stronger lighting scenarios.
The Tv picture can be adjusted to your preferences, but I located the default settings fantastic sufficient for me. It is Power Star rated, which is superior, but I found the "intelligent sensor" adjustments a bit too dark for me. Nevertheless, you can adjust this as your wish.
SUMMARY: I don't assume you can go incorrect with this great LG HDTV. I would rate it at four.5 stars. Some minor limitations on audio output and the somewhat high price that I paid at a huge box retailer (BB) created me give it a four rather of five.
I may possibly update this if I get any issues later....
