Pros

Overall picture quality is crisp and clear - HD and SD content are well-represented, with minimal off-axis coloration

1 agrees

Simple, sophisticated design is complimentary to most home entertainment spaces - ambient blue LED provides a subtle, calming presence

1 agrees

Audio EQ presets are of exceptionally high quality - "Music" and "Cinema" modes stand out, especially when used in conjunction with "Surround Sound"

1 agrees

120Hz image processing is ideal for sports fans - provides an unparalleled amount of physical realism

1 agrees

Functions well in bright environments - doesn't cause glare/light reflection as much as competitors from Sony and Sanyo

1 agrees

Initial assembly is very easy - base unit is attached via a simple two-screw design, simple enough even for inexperienced users

Cons

Lacks a standard stereo output - significantly reduces connectivity options, especially amongst older receivers and speaker sets

1 agrees

"Intelligent Sensor" is very hit or miss - many users report automatic screen calibration to be too dark for their given room

The LG 47LK520 is a mid-range LCD television that displays in full 1080p high definition. Others in the series include the 42 inch 42LK520 and 55 inch 55LK520 which otherwise share the same features. This series is designed to support fast-moving video with TruMotion 120Hz mode, enabling fast action sequences to be shown in detail without blur or stutter. Colors are managed through the Picture Wizard II system that allows users to adjust the picture's tone easily, while 8 separate picture modes, 3 color temperature modes and 6 aspect ratio settings allow full control of the viewing experience. An Intelligent Sensor is also built in to automatically adjust the brightness of the screen, making it easier to see in brightly lit rooms and less glaring in darker spaces, while an automatic audio leveler can be used to keep sometimes loud commercials and intrusive sounds at a steady volume. Digital and analog reception is made possible with the built in NTSC/ATSC/Clear QAM tuners, and you can tune in and program your favorite stations as well.
