LG 47LB5800

The LG 47LB5800 is an entry-level Smart LED TV, which is slightly better than the ubiquitous Seiki and TCL range of Smart TVs out there. So if you searching for an affordable Smart LED TV which has a good picture quality then look no further than the LG 47LB5800. One good thing is that when this model was released it was priced higher compared to what its currently being sold at.

Refresh Rate: 60Hz (Native), Motion Clarity Index: 120 (Effective), Backlight: LED, Smart Functionality: Yes, Dimensions (W x H x D): TV without stand: 42.2” x 24.8″ x 2.2”, TV with stand: 42.2” x 26.6” x 10”,  Inputs: 3 HDMI 1.4, 4 USB 2.0, 1 RF, 1 Component, 1 Composite, 1 Digital Audio Out (optical), 1 PC Audio, 1 LAN, 1 Headphone, Accessories Included: TV Remote


The LG 47LB5800 is intended to meet the demand of people who want good picture quality Smart LED TV with an affordable price tag. The backbone of the quality display is the LG’s LED Backlighting technology. This technology enables illumination of pictures with the LED inside the TV. This process really helps to render both light and dark parts of the image resulting in excellent picture quality in high-ambient light situations. Also the Motion Clarity Index helps processing fast moving images at a 60Hz refresh rate. So watching your favorite match or action movies is a good experience but let me remind you that at some point there is blur in the display. This is understandable as it’s a step down to the LB6300 series produced by LG.


Moreover the viewing angles are okay with the 47LB5800 as moving away from the center will distort your view be it still or moving images. Mostly likely you would elect to mount it as to which you can always view it from the center. That will give you the result you want. Overall, it’s safe to say that the LG 47LB5800 has the best picture quality in the standard LED TVs market.


The LG 47LB5800 has some unique features to offer in terms of its Smart TV OS. The dashboard of the OS offers complete customizations so you setup your most used apps as you like and access them instantly. One good thing about the LG’s Smart OS is its relatively fast speed. The apps switch quickly and load time & selection is almost instant. Like all other Smart TVs out there the LG 47LB5800 also allows you to access YouTube, Amazon Instant Video, Netflix etc. It also gives you recommendation related to your searched programs and provides you with valuable suggestions.

Furthermore, you can in a way use it as a gaming monitor but its not recommended. Its sleek bezel design is all screen and minimum wasted space, which can easily sit on your desk. With a one year parts and labor warranty the LG 47LB5800 is a good bargain.


All in all the LG 47LB5800 is a good buy mostly because of its excellent picture quality with brighter brights and blacker blacks. Compared to the step up LB6300 series that features local dimming technology, ofcourse this model is no match. But when you compare the price tag with the brilliant picture quality the LG 47LB5800 offers the perfect blend when you are looking for options in the 47-Inch Smart LED TVs category. And yeah it costs under $600.
