LG Electronics Infinia 47LE8500 47-Inch LCD TV

 

With its skinny profile and strong lineup of features, the LG Infinia 47LE8500 certainly qualifies as a chic, connected HDTV. Slightly more than an inch thick, this 47-inch full-array backlit LED TV packs a good collection of Internet services...

Full-array LED backlight ; 240Hz refresh rate ; Handsome set with good image quality and great audio

Pricey for its screen-size class ; Very little printed documentation

The LG Infinia 47LE8500 looks good and delivers a slew of customization options, plus great Internet content--but image quality isn't great, and this HDTV is expensive.

LG Infinia LE8500 review: LG Infinia LE8500

 

LG Infinia LE8500

Produces among the deepest shades of black of any TV; superb shadow detail; exceedingly accurate color; better off-angle viewing than many LCDs; controls local dimming "blooming" well; plenty of streaming and interactive features; extensive picture...

Expensive; uneven backlight uniformity; adjustable dejudder doesn't work well; subpar bright-room performance; benefits of 240Hz difficult to discern; some stray illumination and uniformity issues.

With the excellent picture quality of the local-dimming LE8500, LG challenges other LCD makers for videophile appeal.

Review: LG Infinia 47LE8500

 

The LG Infinia 47LE8500 looks good and delivers a slew of customization options, plus great Internet content--but image quality isn't great, and this HDTV is expensive.

But at a recommended price of $2000 (as of August 8, 2010), the Infinia 47LE8500 costs more than most competitors in its screen-size class

LG Infinia 47LE8500 LCD HDTV

 

Although 3D is about to make a loud buzz in the HDTV world, most current sets aren't ready for the 3D gravy train yet. The top-of-the-line LG Infinia LX9500 series will be 3D capable. At one step down in LG's lineup is the solidly 2D Infinia 47LE8500...

LG 47LE8500 LED Backlit LCD TV Review

 

The LE8500 is loaded with extra features (some good, some not) and striking good looks. It is the next to highest end TV produced by LG for 2010 falling just below the LE9500 which has the simulated 480Hz rate that I cant imagine makes much difference....

With that done we will report up front that judder is noticeable and persistent especially in scenes with side to side panning. But it's worth the tradoff as the judder reduction option is just too distracting even at level 1

This LED local dimming LCD TV is a hardcore performer, but you'll need to dig really deep into your pockets for this one.
