I’ve just received my LG 39lb5600 tv and I’m more than satisfied with the picture and sound quality, and this is without me playing or getting deep into the av settings yet. This LG comes with 2 hdmi inputs and 1 usb among other input and outputs. The tv’s size I believe is perfect for bedrooms or play rooms. Contrary to what you may read or see this model tv does not support usb movies but does support mp3 and picture files. This did disappoint me somewhat because this is one of the main features I wanted but still I’m satisfied wither everything else it offers for its price.

UPDATE 1 Month: At this point I have lowered my review to 1 star. The adapter deteriorated exactly as expected. I am returning this to Amazon.

Right now I’ve only used this adapter a week, and there has been 4 disconnects. If you check out reviews on Newegg, Amazon, and Cnet for a new one of these adapters, you’ll quickly find a trend; this adapter overheats and disconnects. It especially happens when you are utilizing high traffic, aka, when you need it to stay connected the most (streaming netflix/hulu, downloading, online gaming, etc.) I wish I had listened to the reviews I read on the pages selling the new adapters because now I KNOW from experience that the heat degradation will continue to compound and it will only get worse and worse. I was being naive in thinking that “refurbished” actually meant the company fixed the fidelity issues regarding this adapter, and are now selling “fixed” versions. If one week has me giving this 3 stars, I wonder what one month will have me thinking.

First I’m not a techie, don’t use tvs that much, don’t even use a DVD player, just needed a basic tv. I don’t have cable, use Roku to watch programs. This tv was for the exercise room. The tv arrived, I assembled and placed it in 5 minutes, took another 30 seconds to hook up Roku and was watching. Simple, easy, my kind of electronic. My old tv had a volume limit that often couldn’t be heard over active exercise equipment. The sound on this tv is a huge improvement; at half volume it can easily be heard over the equipment. It was a good price, got it within 2 days. I’m totally happy with it.

I was skeptical of this mount. Why should this be so cheap compared to other mounting kits? I ordered one (due to the price), and prepared to return it if I did not think the mount could handle the weight of the 52” LCD TV (Samsung).

Once I got it, I understood the cost. Good low-cost design and built with solid heavy duty steel.
- Two horizontal bars are load-bearing, and for proper VESA spacing, they have to be parallel and relative distance must be in the right tolerances. These are made of solid steel.
- Two vertical bars (in the wall mount) are flimsey, and that’s ok. it should be solid enough make a rectangle box w/ square angles. That’s it.
- Two vertical mounting (to the TV) brackets are of heavy duty metal. Making this in to two parts (not one), reduction of material, but also allows free horizontal adjustment on the TV mount.
- By doing the above, the kit is small, uses less metal (and reduce shipping and material waste).

Positives
————-
1. Good solid and heavy duty construction.

2. Good value (low-cost). Paid less than $ 25 including shipping.

3. Easy install. Took 15 min to figure out the instruction (which is not totally clear), and 10~15 min to install and ready to watch.

4. built-in level worked well during marking of mouting holes on the wall —I tested w/ my own, and was consistent.

5. Once the mounted on the wall, and bracket on TV, you could adjust horizontal TV placement on the mount, just by sliding few inches left or right, post install. I expect this to be safe and true if the wall mount is directly screwed into the wall studs. I do not expect dry-wall install without the use of the studs to handle such adjustment.

6. The brackets on TV could also be used to adjust vertical TV placement by a few inches up and down. But for this one, you’ll need to lift TV off the bracket and adjust and pull back :-).

7. There is a reasonable space (I would say, just right) from the wall to the TV to get cables/connectors through WITHOUT using any expensive 90 degree connectors. Plenty of space between two horizontal bars to put extra power outlet and data HDMI cable outlet to hide all the cables.

8. This supports tilt up/down, and works well. Amazon product description does not make it clear.

Negatives
————-
1. Just one. Clearer instruction so that I do not need to spend 15 min figuring things out. One could learn a lot form IKEA :-).
2. Packing/Packaging — Not necessarily Cheetah Mount issue — mine came w/o missing parts, although I noticed torn cardboard box edges and some parts COULD have been lost during shipping. Either double box, or have Cheetah use heavier box stock.

Helpful Hints & Comments
————————————-
1. DO NOT forget to tighten the screws (2) on the bottom horizontal bars AFTER TV is placed on the wall mount — especially if you are in CA w/ quake. This is what prevents TV falling off the mount accidentally. But do not over-tighten (you are NOT securing from left-to-right movement).
2. Very happy w/ my purchase. Will get one more for my other TV.

I’m a gamer. I have an Xbox One. I use it to (obviously) play games, watch Netflix and YouTube, listen to music, and even browse the Internet occasionally. And if I had a PS4, I know it would offer many of those same features.

It’s for this reason (because I own an console that already does everything) that I DO NOT want a more expensive Smart TV with a bunch of built-in apps that I don’t care about. Instead, I simply want a basic, reasonably priced, high-quality LED on which my Xbox One interface will look great. And this TV… it delivers. It is a ‘stupid’ as they come when it comes to LED TVs and that makes me very happy.

Additionally, newer Toshiba TVs have an excellently responsive Game Mode. Just go look over on the Input Lag database (search Input Lag Database on Google) and you’ll see that Toshiba offers some great options. This TV isn’t in the database yet, but I decided to go ahead and gamble and buy it anyway… and after a couple of days worth of TitanFall I’m confident that this TV is super-speedy for gaming. My daughter watched Frozen with the Movie Mode turned on and it looked great too, but honestly, like I said, this is a gamer review, so there’s probably somebody else out there more qualified at telling you if the 120 HZ ClearMotion is quality enough for movie buffs.

So yeah, if 1) you want a pretty big TV on which to play games, 2) you’re like me and see no need to double-dip by having both Smart TV and Xbox One apps that literally do the exact same thing, and 3) you’re on a budget, then this TV is a GREAT choice.

This replaces a 9-month old 50” Panasonic Plasma which had to be retired when my 20-month old threw a lego block at it and somehow managed to both crack the screen and bugger the board.

As plasmas are being withdrawn from the market I decided to give this LED thing a crack - Over the first 24 hrs I have been super-impressed by the clarity of the picture, vibrancy of colours and even depth of blacks, which on some settings actually match my Panasonic.

I’ve owned Samsungs, LG’s and Panasonic in the past. Panasonic seemed to have a ‘premium’ feel, but this TV is every bit as good, and picture-wise, even better.

I haven’t experienced the ‘soap opera’ effect with this set either, though the first thing I did was go in and calibrate my picture settings, so that may have something to do with that. Regardless, the picture is beautifully natural and super-crisp to watch. Basically the perfect balance.

I opted for an extra 5 inches over the older tv (so the 55” model) and am glad I did - the extra 5” makes a difference and the clarity of this set means that even from a short distance away, everything is crystal clear. I loved my Panasonic plasma but there were a few things that irked me a bit… The picture was not “mind-blowingly” sharp and whites were always pretty dull (a by-product of plasma and something you just need to accept). This TV rectifies all of that with punchy whites, deep blacks and a beautifully crisp HD picture.

Overall what I love most is that, regardless of what picture type I want, I have complete control… So, I can have whites that burn my retinas if I wish, which was something I could never get on the plasma.

Setup could not be easier and the pre-set picture settings are actually very good (though I still advise taking your preferred one and fine-tuning a little for your own preferences and/or to get a more natural tone).

I was a little concerned over what the sound would be like on such a thin panel but it’s actually very strong (again, plenty of automatic settings which seem to work pretty well). I’ve not yet tried a sound bar so I’m sure it would make the sound even better, but with two small kids in the house and most of my viewing coming after 8pm when they’re asleep, I’m not at the stage of opting for a sound bar or surround system just yet.

Personally I don’t think you can go wrong with LG these days; the brand is on the ascendancy in technology with TVs, Phones etc all coming out at the very highest level. I can’t speak to their customer service as I’ve never had to use it but a lot of other brands’ reputations (ahem, Hisense) put me off risking my investment with them, even though their showroom TVs looked phenomenal.

One thing the TV lacks is Smart capability. This doesn’t interest some but for me was essential. Why did I buy this set then? Well, the “Smart” version was over $200 more. So I bought this along with a Roku streaming stick for $50 which gives me all the apps I want to watch (as well as some very cool ones I never knew about, like Amazon Cloud Player, Qello, to name a few). Sure, it adds another remote to the mix, so if that is going to make or break the deal for you, opt for the Smart version (which is currently $899).

I’ll update if anything happens or disappoints with the TV but so far I couldn’t be happier. Looks like the best TV we’ve owned.

*UPDATE 1 Week in - After a week of use, not much has changed - awesome TV, crystal clear image, decent sound - getting plenty of use out of it and would definitely recommend the 55” over the 50”. I definitely feel the “Smart” features are essential for me these days, but the $50 Roku I added is working really, really well so don’t be afraid to use that as an option - the Roku features are much better than the semi-smart functionality of my Panasonic Plasma (it only had 5 options; Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Youtube and some movie thing). Highly recommended.

CUSTOMER REVIEW
review
We purchased the LG 32LN5300 32” television for our toddler’s playroom, so we didn’t want anything too big or too expensive. I looked at all our options and narrowed down my search to the LG 32LN5300 based on image quality, features, and price. My basic requirements were that it had to be 1080P and offer at least two HDMI inputs. There was one other television that was $50 less than the LG, but I opted for the LG because the image quality was noticeably better and off-axis viewing was far superior. The other television was an Insignia.

The first thing I’ll say about the LG 32LN5300 is this television is mostly about image quality; the image quality is its most outstanding feature. Like most flat-screen televisions, especially on the budget market, audio quality is not its strongest asset.

It offers two 10W speakers (20W total) that produce a very nice volume that will easily fill a moderately sized room enough that you can probably hear it well in an adjacent room. Don’t expect to get a nice full-bodied sound with rich low end. Its sonic body is thin. With that said, the settings do offer the ability to tweak the audio and you can set the treble and bass. This helps somewhat and lessons the boxy sound a bit. Virtual surround settings also enhance the audio effect. Just be aware that the audio quality is enough to get by, which makes it fine for a bedroom, den, or play room. If you want added audio quality, consider purchasing a separate speaker system.

Where this television excels in its price range is in image quality. The monitor does an excellent job at projecting a clean image with crisp detail and very nice image contrast and color tone. There is an abundance of expert settings that allow you to configure gamma levels and many other complex settings that most users will never know how to set. Some of these settings can get you into trouble, so if you play with them, expect to possibly reset everything back to the factory default if you screw things up. But don’t be intimidated. The settings are easy to access using the remote and all the basics are there: brightness, contrast, color, tint, backlighting, etc.

After initially setting up the television, I wasn’t overly pleased with the image quality. After maybe twenty minutes of customization, I now have things configured and am very pleased with the image quality. If image quality is important to you, expect to spend a little time configuring the settings to your liking and don’t get upset if the first image you see isn’t what you expected. It’s designed to allow for user configuration.

This television is ideal for applications that don’t require extra features or an abundant quantity of inputs and outputs. The 32LN5300 comes with only two HDMI inputs, one on the back and one on the side. If you’re wall mounting the television, keep in mind that the back HDMI connector requires you to use an HDMI cable with a 90-degree connector or adapter. If you don’t, the television won’t lay flush against the wall because the cable will get in the way.

Along with two HDMI connectors, the television comes with one composite and one USB input.

The 32LN5300 is Energy Star compliant and sips power at a rate of approximately $6 a year when the Eco setting is configured (default).

There are a number of reviews that complain about faulty power issues. Some of these reviews are related to purchasing used equipment. I’m very concerned about this, but so far, we haven’t experienced this problem, perhaps because we purchased it new. If we do, I’ll immediately update this review and report it here. If you don’t see any added update regarding this, our television is working fine.

Overall, the LG 32LN5300 is a very nice basic television that produces a beautiful image. The sound is a bit thin, but the audio can be configured to make the out-of-the-box settings a bit bolder. It’s not built for sound; it’s build for economy of purchase and image quality. We’re very happy with the screen quality. Based on our experience, we would recommend this television for those who need a basic set without an abundance of features or connections.

CUSTOMER REVIEW
review
*UPDATE 11-10-11* Apparently the design and sale of this mount has changed since my original review. It’s now easier to install, and comes with an HDMI cable and level. Otherwise, most of my review still stands.

I was planning to make my own TV mount because all the affordable ones were so cheaply made. That was until I stumbled on this one for $25.

Wow, was I surprised when it arrived! Very nicely double-boxed and packaged extremely well. Then the construction is quality all the way, right down to the chrome-plated nuts, screws and bushings. This mount was manufactured and boxed as if it were a high-dollar item.

It only took about 15 minutes to have my 37” LG firmly hanging on the wall. Oh, and I did it all by myself.

I can’t comment on the mount-to-TV screws because my LG already provided them. And I did use my own 5/16” flat washers on 2 of the lag screws since none were included, but that’s just my preference.

I highly recommend this mount, I would have been happy to pay double for such quality.

Now, as usual, many of the reviews here are misleading:

*Dismiss all reviews that talk about adjacent studs, or difficulties getting screws to grab at an angle. This thing BOLTS TO A SINGLE WALL STUD VERY EASILY! Just like what’s shown on the instruction sheet, you simply screw 3 of the lag screws down the center of the mount. That’s all that’s needed, the other holes are just a bonus for more complicated setups. DO NOT PUT 6 OR 7 LAGS INTO A STUD! You will probably shred or weaken it. Crash goes your TV while ripping a chunk of 2x4 through your drywall.

*Dismiss the reviews that mention short lag screws. They are 2”, that’s a depth of almost 1 1/2” into the stud after going through 1/2” drywall and the mount. If you drilled roughly 3/16” to 1/4” diameter pilot holes and didn’t over-tighten your lags, it should be fine. I’ve mounted mine twice now, using the same (provided) lags.

*I have no idea where this review came from that complains about an adjustment knob getting in the way. My mount doesn’t have any kind of knob on it whatsoever, perhaps they are commenting on a different model. There’s a tilt adjustment, but it uses a wrench and doesn’t protrude anywhere. The ONLY BAD PART I’VE FOUND is that cheap stamped sheet-metal wrench to tighten the tilt mechanism. No problem, I just used my own 13mm wrench instead.

*Yes, the mount can be somewhat stiff. Like another reviewer stated, just lubricate it. I used a few drops of 3-In-1 Oil in the joints.

*And bad reviews from people who didn’t research or check to see if their TV or monitor is VESA compliant. That also includes the ones who didn’t check to see if the mounting plate will block off their inputs. The plate is about 8 1/2” square, it shouldn’t be that hard to see if you’ll have a conflict. Besides, in the description it says, “Please make sure what mount your TV needs before you place order. If you are not sure, please send us a message. We will check for you.” So they are giving a nice product bad reviews because they simply didn’t read the description.

*Then all the complaints of trying to hold the TV to the mount while installing the screws. If you look at the pictures on Amazon you’ll see the center screw hole is a “keyhole”.

1. Hold the mount to the wall and mark the 3 hole locations on the wall. On the center keyhole you want to only mark the narrow slot at the top.

2. Drill (3) 3/16” holes.

3. Install center screw into the stud, but leave a small gap between the head and the drywall, you can even use the mount to test whether the slot in the “keyhole” passes behind the head.

4. Lay your TV face-down on a safe place like a mattress or a table with a comforter over it. Place the mount over the back of the TV and install screws.

5. Position the mount so the wall mounting plate is reasonably close to the TV and as close to center as possible, and simply hang it on the wall to the center lag screw through the keyhole. That should help with the weight while you screw the top lag in, then the bottom. Don’t tighten anything completely until all 3 screws are in, then make sure it’s level or plumb.

That’s it. This is an inexpensive, very well built product that solves a simple problem. I’ll be ordering more for my PC monitors and future customers ASAP.
