    Good TV but very clumsy “Smart” features & interface, March 25, 2012
    Michael Sandman (Brookline, MA United States) –

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    The LG LS5700 is an OK TV. If I could, I’d give it 2-1/2 stars. The LS5700′s selling point is supposed to be the “smart” features that let you connect to the Internet, get content from Netflix, Hulu Plus, etc. and share content from other devices in your network. It does have a nice crisp HD picture after you tweak the color settings, and so-so sound, as expected. But if that’s all you want in a TV there are less expensive alternatives. Unfortunately, the interface for using the “smart TV” features is very clumsy. And although the manual does a good job of showing how to connect the TV, it has almost nothing on how to use the “smart” features. The built-in menus are supposed to do that. The on-screen menus and LG’s online support are minimal at best, and just plain wrong in one case (see below).

    On the plus side, the TV connected easily to my home network, using either WiFi or an Ethernet cable. And the “smart” features do work, if you can stand the interface However, this is TV is not the user-friendly web-integrated TV I was hoping for. That’s still some time in the future.

    The TV includes a remote that’s used to access the “smart” features and also to set up the TV, connect to your WiFi network, etc. It has sort of an air mouse pointer that shows up on the screen. When you use features that require entering text, there’s an on-screen QWERTY keyboard that you click on with the remote control’s pointer. Using the on-screen keyboard is just plain horrible. It’s very slow and the remote’s pointer is slow and somewhat jerky. If you get into the TV’s setup menu you can change the pointer’s setting to “fast”, which helps a bit, but the on-screen keyboard is hopeless.

    It’s not mentioned in the manual, but you can attach a wireless keyboard through a USB port. That lets you enter text more easily than you can with the on-screen keyboard. But the wireless mouse that pairs with my new wireless keyboard doesn’t work. LG tech support says the set can take only one user input even though there are three USB ports. (They responded very quickly — within hours — to their credit.) So you have to use the remote control to do the pointing. What this TV really needs is a remote with a decent pointer and a little pull-out keyboard or a keyboard on the back. Samsung, Sony and Viszio (among others) do that; I would have been a lot happier with the set if LG did the same thing.

    There’s an iPhone app from LG that could (in theory) make the interface better. It’s supposed to allow you to control the TV from an iPhone. The app doesn’t have a keyboard, according to reviews on iTunes, so it’s not perfect. Far worse, although the LG web site specifically mentions that the LS5700 series is compatible with the app, the app doesn’t work with this model. This was confirmed by LG tech support, and the app’s information tab has a list of supported models includes the LW5700 series, but not the LS5700 series.

    To access music, photos or video on your home network using the DLNA capability, you need to download an application from the LG website to your computer. The TV’s setup menu does mention that you need to have media sharing software, but you have to dig deeply into the on-screen menus to find out.

    Perhaps LG intends to update the iPhone app, or the set’s firmware, or offer a compatible remote with a keyboard and a better pointer. But until then, avoid this model if you want easy-to-use “smart TV” features. The interface on this set is not ready for prime time. (EDITED 3-30-2012)

    Good “smart” HDTV, July 21, 2012
    Elizabeth (RALEIGH, NC, United States) –

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    This was not only my first HDTV purchase ever, but my first TV purchase, period. I’d managed to live with hand-me-down and garage-sale TVs up til now, but I decided I wanted something nice for a change. I don’t subscribe to cable or satellite television, so I wanted something that had some built-in “smart” capabilities. I also wanted something that wasn’t going to break the bank. I really dislike 3D content, so I decidedly did NOT want a 3D TV. Finding a nice TV that has smart features and *isn’t* 3D is getting harder and harder. For the most part, this TV has fit the bill, and I’ve been happy with my purchase.

    I thought about putting together a list of pros and cons, but that didn’t really seem to work too well with this particular review, so I’ve listed some general notes below:

    In a word, excellent. Granted, I don’t have a whole lot to compare it to, but it’s one of the best I’ve seen. Blacks are good, as are whites. Images are nice and crisp when viewing HD content.

    The one thing that gave me a real headache with this TV was figuring out how to turn off the TruMotion setting. I know some people are really jazzed about the 120 Hz view and the lack of motion blur, but to me, it made everything look like I was watching a soap opera. (Don’t know what I’m talking about? Google “soap opera effect.”)

    So I turned it off. That was easy enough: Settings –>’ Picture ‘–> Picture Option ‘–> TruMotion ‘–> OFF. There, fixed! Or so I thought. It fixed it for the TV input. But then I started watching something on Netflix (via the app on the TV), and the dreaded soap-opera effect was back!

    It took me several days of online searching and talking to friends before I figured out that you have to REPEAT THIS process for EVERY SINGLE INPUT. (e.g. Input ‘–> HDMI 1 –>’ Settings ‘–> Picture ‘–> Picture Settings ‘–> TruMotion ‘–> OFF.) And for the built-in apps, like Netflix, you have to start a video, then go the QMENU –>’ Set Video –>’ Picture Option ‘–> TruMotion –>’ OFF.

    Once you’ve set it for each input and app, though, it does stay defaulted to that. So at least you only have to do it once, not every time you start a new video. I found no online documentation ANYWHERE that specified this, though, so I thought it was definitely worth mentioning in this review. Hopefully it will help someone else.

    Not as great, though not as bad as some flat-panels I’ve heard. You can turn it up as loud as you want, but after about the half-way point on the volume scale, there’s not much difference. It’s the same way with my parents’ LG HDTV, which is a few years old. I solved this problem by hooking up an external home stereo system (Sony BRAVIA DAV-DZ170 Home Theater System) and bypassing the TV’s built-in audio altogether.

    The “smart” features were one of the selling points for me. When it comes down to it, though, I only really use 2 of them – Netflix and Hulu Plus. Some of the reviews (and comments on reviews) suggested that this unit might have an Amazon Instant Video app. It does not. Let me repeat: THIS TV DOES NOT HAVE AN AMAZON INSTANT VIDEO APP. And from what I can tell from various sources online, it never will. No idea why, since there are other LG HDTVs that do. This one just isn’t one of them. One user suggested that it just required a firmware update. My firmware is up to date, and there is still no Amazon app. Sorry, people. It just doesn’t exist.

    The “premium” apps this TV comes with (or at least, the ones mine came with) are:
    – Vudu
    – Hulu Plus
    – MOG
    – AccuWeather.com
    – MLB.TV
    – Netflix
    – CinemaNow
    – YouTube
    – NHL
    – vTuner
    – Associated Press
    – Facebook
    – Picasa
    – Google Maps
    – Twitter
    – Viewster

    The LG app store is a joke. Forget finding anything you would ever want, much less be willing to pay for, in that store.

    The online browser is also a joke. If you have to view a website on your TV (e.g. a network television website or Amazon Instant, etc. to view a video), your best bet is to hook up a computer via HDMI. Don’t bother trying to do it with the built-in browser. It may work, but it won’t work well, and it will be a painful experience. Trust me, I tried.

    The YouTube app is pretty weak. It works, but it’s less user-friendly than even the mobile YouTube website. Good luck finding anything specific.

    The Netflix and Hulu Plus apps work well enough. They’re not as user-friendly to navigate through as their respective websites, but that’s to be expected, and I’ve found that it’s easy enough just to queue up things on the…

    “magic remote” is pretty annoying, April 14, 2012
    kuznetsov (USA) –
    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    “Magic remote” is pretty annoying. TV itself seems to be good – reasonable sound, reasonable image. I decided to buy this model because of good viewing angle range and better than average sound. I do not care much about the 3D features that manufacturers are promoting.
    Please note – the “magic remote” was the only one provided. IMHO this is one of those occasions when being cute and creative trumped being useful. I really wish I would have a more traditional remote together with this TV. Changing options and settings is not very easy.
