CNET seems to think it's a decent set. Light on features (ie, no internet apps, 3D, or "Smart TV" features), but quality should be good. Seems like a nice basic tv, for those not interested in the web connectivity. There are also a lot more info on the specs at CNET as well.

CNET Review

Newegg has it new for $800, as a comparison.

There is a side input.

I think I'm pulling the trigger on this set as well. Have a 46" in the living room right now. This would like nice right next to it on College Football Saturdays.

Would especially like the square trade warranty but doesn't seen plausible for only 1 year and $76.

This website offers great TV reviews. http://www.televisioninfo.com/content/LG-47LV4400-LED-LCD-HDTV-Review.htm

This TV did not fare so well in the color reproduction department. That and the mehh contrast ratio kills this deal for me.

Actually, LG just makes a lot of TV's. Their quality is second to none. I have 3 LG HD TV's plus an LG flat screen monitor and have never had any problems with any of them. Also, this is an LED TV (vs. LCD) so the whole issue of dead pixals is different - and much less likely to happen.

Yes, but it's 25 and 23 at the time. Sure, they eventually balance but on that day (or closely prior to it) something must be done.

You can liken it to a piece of paper folded in thirds. It is still a whole piece of paper but, being folded, it exists in a state where it is the same size and yet is not the same size as an unfolded piece or paper.

This TV has come up a lot in the past 3 weeks. Don't get it, the TV is junk. We bought one and it shipped out of the LG warehouse already broken (no damage was done to the box and the level of physical damage to the TV made it obvious that it was done prior to shipment).

When we returned our TV 3 weeks ago we requested another one, but they were sold out. This whole stock of LG TVs are most likely returns... be warned!

Samsung makes the best TVs, LG used to be very good but their quality has taken a nose dive the past 3 years. This TV was out of stock a couple of weeks ago, the whole stock they have currently are returns and they are not checked for damage before they are shipped out.

Okie dokie. Officially, the warranty policy doesn't say anything about stuck pixels. However, if you get this (which sucks, yes) and explain what's up to support@woot.com, it's pretty likely they'll help you explore your options.

They're good people over there. We collectively like it when we can help out as much as possible.

This is an LED *backlit* screen (as contrasted to a fluorescent bulb backlit screen), the same LCD viewing screen in either case, so it is just as likely to have dead/stuck pixels. Right?

This is correct. A true LED TV (where each pixel is light emitting and color changing) is very expensive and not common on the market.

Some LG LED TVs have localized dimming to try and replicate a true LED, but I don't believe that's present in this model.

I agree, this is an LED-LCD TV (LCD panel with LED backlight). So same dead/stuck pixel risks.

Although at 1080p on 47inches, I doubt you'd be able to see most even stuck pixels from farther than 4 feet away... But I'm not interested in a TV right now.

You're slightly right. But mostly wrong. Sears has one at that price. If you happen to live near [mod: creepy specific address there which has been edited out], and were about to buy this TV, you should totally get the one from Sears. For those of us anywhere else, this is probably a better option.

I always get creeped out about EVERYTHING around Halloween. Why, someone put a nice fake plant in the entry way of my apartment building and I'm still staying close to the wall every time I pass by it.

Just throwing it out there.

P.S. They have offered 2 items on a sale day before this year, but very rare. However, they did this also on Tech woot October 24, the same day, offering 2 laptops. Sellout was the 23rd and 24th (note that both days were woot-off days).

P.P.S. LG has pretty good ratings with last year's PC Magazine reader survey for HDTV's, but the newer ones are more towards average:

Seems to me Woot is becoming just like Amazon's lightning deals, once one sells out, the next one comes up, with only a few deals per day. Please stop, I don't like lightning

Bought this a couple of weeks ago when it was on. A couple of scratches on the border around the screen but the pic is awesome. I bought the 2 year warranty for $113. I consider it a great deal. If you are so worried about a perfect, new TV then go pay 2-3 times more.

Want smart TV.

I have the equivalent of this TV, but lately it just sits there, requiring zigs and zags to play the content I want it to play, Net Flixing, Huluing, and such, wirelessly. Although I have give it props for usb ports and media playing.

My next TV is a smart TV.

Yeah, but now this Woot only gets like 14hrs. and the previous had 10hrs. Where's the balance for them? So instead of having one with the wrong amount of time, there's now two.
