LG 42LS5700


LG's mid-range LS5700 offers the same great smart features for less.

Simply put, this is a great smart TV for less.

LG 42LM5700 Review – 42-inch LED LCD HDTV

LG 42LS5700


The LG 42LS5700 provides a smooth picture and easy remote control navigation. It's simple to buy apps, and you can organize them on your dashboard by dragging and dropping them with the Magic Motion remote. You can browse many websites and access...

This smart TV allows you to browse countless websites, watch movies, play games and enjoy TV programming

The Magic Motion remote doesn’t have a QWERTY keyboard; instead, it works with a built-in motion sensor

With internet access and space for about one thousand apps, this smart TV provides one of the best internet-ready TV experiences.

Not Bad At All


On par with Samsung and a bit cheaper. If you don't need 3D but still want a "smart" TV with apps and streaming, this is a good way to go.

I did a fair amount of research before pulling the trigger on this one. I've consistently owned Samsung products (incl. TVs and Blu-Ray players) for a while now, but ultimately went for this LG instead of the Samsung equivalent because the price was...

A few others complain about the magic remote. If you don't like point-and-click menus, then you'll hate the remote ; TruMotion is a bit gimmicky. I personally find it distracting, and until LG's latest firmware update, you couldn't turn it off. It's...

Great TV, horrible remote


As always, great price and superfast shipping from Newegg. -1 star for the frustrating remote.

Excellent picture, great contrast. Bought and returned a few TVs and this had the best picture for the price. Streaming via LAN and wifi works great

Remote is terrible. Bump it and the pointer appears onscreen along with channel/input info bar. Input lag w/ internet apps is beyond annoying - ROKU is infinitely easier to use. Why they chose to cripple this great TV with such a poorly designed input...

Awesome TV!!!


Flying mouse needs time to get use to.

Get this TV!!!! Better then my 55 sony led. Easy to navigate. Beautiful Picture!!! I got mine for $649 with discount

Maybe a con. The wireless can't seem to handle HD video from my router. Could be the router

Very Satisfied !! Money Well Spent.


I've got a lot of VOB files on my server but this doesn't seem to know how to play the entire movie...unless I combine all VOB files into one file. I just copy my full disk as I can run them like the DVD in WMC on my computer. Thinking of adding a...

Picture is great and plenty of inputs ; DNLA allows streaming of all my movies (AVI), photos, and music from my WHS ; Quick web-browsing and favorites

I don't have cable (Only for internet access), so the locals channels do the trick. I just wish the remote had a switch key that allowed jumping between two channels. The pointing feature is nice, but it would be better if it still had a number pad ;...

It is outrageous to expect buyers to go through checkout before disclosing the price
