          Comments about LG Electronics 42" LN5700 Full HD 1080p Smart LED TV:

          This unit replaced a 14 year old 32" HDTV (yes, we were one of the first people in our town to have HDTV). And there is really nothing much to talk about other than it provides excellent resolution and color.

          In particular, I appreciate that it comes with three "smart" HDMI ports -- necessary for us to plug all our different devices in, including Apple TV. The unit also senses when one of the HDMI ports is active an automatically switches which is really nice.

          We did notice some "smearing" in the video which gives even film the look of "video" (something our old monitor clearly didn't do), but I am not sure that it is the monitor and not the Verizon set top box which is pretty old model.

          Anyway, happy with it and don't expect any issues.

          Comments about LG Electronics 42" LN5700 Full HD 1080p Smart LED TV:

          This seems to be a good TV. However, it needs to be improved. Network streaming is slow. When in Video, it says is has 3D smart technology but it doesn't. I tried several 3d videos and did not work. Also, the video quality needs improvement. Finally, the QWERTY LG Smart remote control does not work with this 42LN5700 TV, despite the remote control is LG brand.

            Comments about LG Electronics 42" LN5700 Full HD 1080p Smart LED TV:

            We purchased the product during Cyber Monday 2013. The smart TV came with the software installed and, from the start, it was very easy to stream shows and movies. We also purchased an indoor antenna to get a few channels and everything works fantastic. It is really easy to plug-in USB thumb drives or external HD to watch videos. I am by no mean a TV aficionado, but I really like the TV: the colors look very good (even in sunlight) and the sound is also good. There is a voice equilizer built-in to optimize the voice-to-noise ratio (when needed). Although it is not the magic remote, the remote is decently easy to use. Of course, typing long sentences might be a bit annoying, but I knew I was not buying a computer. One function that we like a lot is the ability to stream videos from Youtube by setting a playlist using the Ipad (or a computer). My 3½ years old son loves it. All together, a great buy.

              Purchased this during Thanksgiving shopping season. Was searching for decent deals but this one had all the features and good picture out of box. Yes, I can buy a settop box to make any dumb TV but multiple equipment around TV is always a nuiansse. I gave 4 stars only because the web surfing seems a bit slower than netPC, discouraging naviagaion too much. But once connected, no problem in viewing.

              I connected wireless computer mouse and it is very convenient to move aroud the pointer. I guess I will get the those remote controller with keyboard.

                    Comments about LG Electronics 42" LN5700 Full HD 1080p Smart LED TV:

                    This should be a 5-star rating, but after 30 days of being blown-off over-and-over by LG customer support, 2-stars is all I can give it.

                    On the positive side, this TV is quite attractive, and has one of the best pictures I have ever seen at this price point. In addition LG has provided a huge array of picture options to enable folks to tweak it to absolute perfection. Also, the onboard speakers are surprisingly good. Setup was a breeze, and the included stand was VERY stable. It powers on in less than 5 seconds, and is really responsive when browsing streaming apps like Netflix.

                    Sadly, on the negative side, I purchased this TV for its advertised DLNA/USB playback capabilities. Though it plays back H.246 content fairly well, MPEG-2 content fails to playback at the correct aspect ratio no matter what settings are used. My primary reason for purchasing this as a SMART TV was to be able to access and playback our MPEG-2 home movies and DVD movie library hosted on our DLNA server. Unfortunately, this is now the ONLY device in my home which cannot do that correctly. Really, this should be a simple fix that could be pushed out by a simple firmware upgrade, but LG support has been dodgy, and they are apparently unwilling to do what was necessary to address this problem with one of this TV's ADVERTISED capabilities.

                    Negative stuff aside, if you can get past the playback issues and the lack of quality customer support, this TV is a no-brainer.

                    (P.S. Kudos to B&H. It arrived at my home super fast and in great condition.)
