Good points:
The magic mouse is magic, picture is great, sound is great don't bother with a soundbar, weight is low enough to mount on any type of wall, all round great product and it looks the part too.
Bad points:
Trumotion function is pointless from my point of view, my kids had to show me how to turn it off, they also think it is pointless and they know more about this stuff than me.

Good points:
Only hung it on the wall a couple of days ago. All seems good so far but not had time to try most of the features yet.
Bad points:
The screws supplied to screw the TV to the wall bracket are not long enough. Had to go out and buy some longer ones.

Manufacturer's Description

The LG 50LN578V Smart 50” LED TV is a combination of advanced picture and sound technology with dazzling digital features that make for a peerless entertainment centre.

Smart TV
Smart TV lets you enjoy loads of diverse content on a big screen, in the comfort of your lounge. BBC iPlayer makes sure you don’t miss your favourite shows with access to BBC programming from the last seven days.

You’ll also have direct internet access without needing a computer, interacting with friends on social networks including Twitter and Facebook, enjoying at worldwide YouTube smash hits and streaming a flood of awesome movies straight from the web onto your LG 50 LN578-V 50" LED TV.

NOW TV
This television comes with the NOW TV app already installed. NOW TV offers the latest On Demand and live Sky movies and 24-hour access to six Sky Sports channels with the popular Sky Sports Day Pass. You also get access to TV shows from ten top pay channels, catch-up TV and on demand box sets.

A TV with built-in WiFi
Unlock LG Smart TV simply by running an Ethernet cable from your broadband router into the TV, or attach the LG Wi-Fi USB accessory for wireless access; then follow the instructions on the screen and reap the rewards of LG Smart TV.

With a full in-TV web browser, you can visit websites just like you would on a PC, with the facility to save favourites for speedy future access.

A dual-core processor allows smooth, fast and effective running of the TV’s brilliant Smart and web functionality for a flawless entertainment experience every time you turn it on.

Enjoy the greatest view with a Full HD screen
Unbelievable picture definition, sharp details and deep, vivid colours radiate from the Full HD 1920 × 1080p LED display, making a visual treat of all your films and TV programmes.

A high pixel count (exceeding two million) improves picture quality dramatically, enabling the TV to generate an amazingly realistic look for all content. Sharpness and detail some five times the level of standard definition set this progressive display apart, and it exhibits twice the detail of 720p HD Ready TVs, making it one of the best large-screen sets around.

With Full HD resolution you’ll realise the true potential of high-resolution gaming and Blu-ray films, experiencing TV in a more intimate and immersive way than with previous models. Content is optimised by the LG Triple XD Engine so that you can enjoy the best view no matter what it is you’re watching or playing.

The 50-LN5-78V 50" LED TV is edge-lit for more vibrant, defined picture quality, with palpably deep contrast and fluid on-screen motion thanks to a 100 Hz processing rate. It’s also Eco-friendly, with an impressive A+ energy efficiency rating.

Elegant TV sound that packs a punch
Housing two high-quality 10 W speakers, the LG 50LN-578V exudes crystal-clear sound driven by Virtual Surround Plus technology.

Demonstrating a satisfyingly broad and naturalistic audio range, it delivers low frequencies with solid punchiness, while a defined midrange and detailed high frequencies do justice to the full sonic range of any film, game or programme.

A prominent enhancement to your every viewing, this sophisticated audio processing treats sound effects, gunfire, emotional soundtracks and subtle dialogue with equal priority.

Wave your magic wand
Included with the LG 50-LN-578V, the Magic Motion Remote Control operates like a computer mouse for your LG Smart TV. Enjoy the easiest control yet over your entertainment as you point, click, scroll and control with unparalleled intuitiveness.

Using simple movements and gestures, you’ll be able to drag, flick, and select your preferred options, without the confusing annoyance of using multiple buttons and arrow keys.

Subscription-free access to HD channels
Thanks to the built-in Freeview HD tuner, you’ll benefit free high-definition entertainment with the LG 50LN5-78V Full HD TV. Enjoy the best of BBC and loads more in stunning high resolution.

Freeview is an exciting collection of shows and channels that will keep you glued to your screen and talking about long afterwards. Up to 50 digital TV channels and 24 radio stations are yours free of a subscription fee, and many channels are now available in incredible high definition with Freeview HD.

A big advancement from standard definition Freeview, Freeview HD improves your viewing experience with incredible variety presented in high resolution.

Connect as you need
With three HDMI ports you can connect games consoles, set-top boxes, Blu-ray players and compatible HD sources simultaneously, taking advantage of the TV’s audio-visual capabilities.

The trusty SCART input lets you connect DVD players and retro games consoles, while the component/composite jacks permit connection of digital camcorders, cameras and similar compatible devices for viewing on a beautifully large and clear screen.

Put a USB drive into one of the three USB 2.0 ports to make use of the 50-LN578V TV’s multimedia capabilities, sharing videos, photos and music in comfort and clarity with friends and family, and eliminating the hassle of crowding around a cramped laptop screen.
