LG‘s Xcanvas 47LH70YD is a 47″ LCD TV sporting a 1920 x 1080 pixel format S-IPS TFT LCD panel that means great color fidelity and wide viewing angles. The 47LH70YD has a 120Hz frequency for motion-blur-busting action and video is processed via LG’s Twin XD engine. Brightness is 500 cd/m2 and the 2ms GTG response time is quite fast. The built-in SD slot will allow you to directly view DivX movies, JPEG images and MP3 audio files. It seems more and more newly announced TVs are including SD slots. There are plenty of connections including four HDMI ports.

lg_47lh70yd_03LG’s design is generally quite nice but I have one big issue with all of its TVs with the big red button in the middle. LG touts the big red button in the middle as a feature. “Blooming light” is what LG calls it. To me it is nothing but a visual distraction while watching TV, especially when the room is dark. There is also a melody associated with turning the TV on. I’m curious: who actually goes up to a TV and pushes a button to turn it on? I guess if you lost your remote control you would be forced to. I admit, I sometimes have to do that, but that’s the exception. The elimination of this big red button would remove a TV-viewing distraction and simplify the front design in my opinion.
