LG 55LN5700 Smart TV Review

LG has presented the all new LG 55LN5700 TV model, adding another gem to its collection of smart TVs. The model looks quite familiar to the already existing LA6200 series, but lacks the 3D compatibility and this is the reason that this TV costs much lower as compared to the existing ones. The TV ships with the magical remote from LG to satisfy all your browsing and application needs, and even supports the latest voice commands. There are a number of features to amaze you, and keep you entertained without giving a greater amount of effect on your budget.

Let’s group the pros and cons of this TV.


  • The new TV is complete value for money. A smart TV at this price is surely economical.
  • Despite the low price, the TV contains complete suite found in any other smart TV.
  • You even have an option to add Magic Remote, for better and faster navigation, internet browsing, and voice control features.
  • The built in audio system is better than other models in the market.


  • The TV lacks a bit in the contrast ratio terms. The black level is not as high as high end plasma TVs.
  • The matte screen used on TV gives low picture depth.
  • Gaming experience with online games could not cross the expected limit.
  • The Processing power suffers a lot while streaming online content.

The colors produced are highly true, and calibration is simply perfect. But the matte finish has glare from the room light, and even produces lower picture depth. The TV has a satisfactory off angle viewing performance for any other economical LED TV. Of course Plasma and other high end models do beat it in terms of picture quality, but this one is also acceptable given the price range. A high refresh rate of 120 Hz helps reduce and control the motion blur. The Smart TV has a built in Wi-Fi receiver, and also features a dual core processor to meet your processing needs. The TV is not as catchy as other cinema screens from LG with just a .4 mm frame.

The dashboard contains a list of all the apps you downloaded, and shows them to your on one page. LG has provided a dedicated button on remote to directly access the dashboard. The CPU is about 120% faster as compared to previous versions, and allows for faster load of programs and applications. The GPU in this TV is also about 300% faster as compared to previous year models, and this is what makes it a perfect choice for gamers. You even have an option to buy magic remote as an accessory by adding a bit extra amount. The clear sound really pleases the ears, and gives you the feel of a cinema theatre. The sound quality is completely excellent, and the location of the speakers at the back provides that extra bit of depth to the sound. The 0.5 inch bezel frame is really eye catchy, but the stand seems to be a bit cheap looking. The thickness is not much thin, but allows you for wall mounts.

The TV offers a number of features at an economical price, and would give a stiff competition to Samsung UN55F6300, Panasonic TCP55S60, and Vizio M551d. You can buy LG 55LN5700 on Amazon for $899.
