Really stuck on which of these tv's to get, or if there's another option. My current tv upgrading from is an LG 32LH30 (1080p, 60hz), used to have a Sony 46v2500 (1080p, 60hz). Looking to upgrade my size again, and the ones I've come up with are:

LG 47CM565
LG 47LS4500
Samsung UN46EH6070

Concerns I have for them are:

47CM565 - has the ports I'd like (multiple port options, including PC/VGA), however, read some bad things about viewing angles
47LS4500 - lack of port connectors, only 2 HDMI, no PC/VGA
UN46EH6070 - lack of port connectors, 2HDMI, no PC/VGA. Never had samsung before.

The reason I'm considering paying a little more for the Samsung is the higher refresh rate (120hz), though the 47LS4500 has that too. 3D would be "neat" to have, but probably not really necessary. Any opinions, or other tv's that I should consider, would be appreciated. Smart isn't important, since I have a Roku/Xbox360 hooked up, though I won't complain about ethernet or other connectivity if included (just probably won't use it). My 360 is an "original premium" model, so it only outputs 1080p over VGA. 2HDMI also seems light on all these tvs, but I suppose there is the capacity for an HDMI switcher addon.

I'd been worried about the 60hz, until I realized that both my current and older tvs had it, and I've never noticed problems. Any thoughts on that too would help. I don't play many FPS, but I've played a few without (noticed) issues.

Budget - ~$600-750

I have the 55LS4500, and have had it for about 5 days now. I am not and expert, and don't have experience with either of the other two TV's you mentioned, but I will tell you what I can.

It is true there are not many connectors on the back of the LS4500, just two HDMI. This was not a problem for me as I have everything hooked up through my AVR, so only one HDMI from the back of the AVR to the TV. The sound quality is supposedly pretty poor, but I haven't really tested it out because, again, everything is through my AVR. I did try the audio on the TV for about 30 seconds, and it seemed similar to other slim LCD's I've heard (adequate, but never great).

The TV is advertised as 120Hz, and I won't say that it necessarily isn't, but there is no way to control the "TruMotion" effect on this TV, and the manufacturer says that it is on and set to "low" by default. This is a common complaint from owners of this TV.

There is definitely some light-bleed in the corners. It is not bad, and comparable to most other inexpensive edge-lit LED tv's. It is not bad enough to cause me any concern.

I will say that I have been extremely happy with this TV. It is way ahead of my 6-year old 42" Viore backlight CCFL LCD. The picture is crisper, colors are richer, everything just looks better.

Again, I don't have experience with the other options, but I would recommend this TV without hesitation.

David

Thanks for the reply. Yea, the input thing bothers me still. What does the TrueMotion issue do to the tv in your opinion? Artifacts really bad?

47cm565, and I love it. The only issue I've had is an occasional blink to black and back, without losing sound (all routed through an avr), which is probably a handshake issue. Not annoying enough to run opticals and components though.
