The LG 47LM860 is a premium 47-inch edge-lit LED TV with a beautiful, almost frameless design, a 1080p Full-HD screen and an interesting set of features. Not only does it boast LG's passive 3D technology, but a novel way to use it in gaming, while a second motion-sensitive remote control makes navigating the set's Smart TV functions that much easier. Could LG have a winning 3D TV on its hands with the 47LM860?

I recently bought this model from John Lewis after having done a considerable amount of research, ultimately basing my decision on the Which review. Unfortunately after only a few minutes the picture went fuzzy, resembling an Andy Warhol painting! I contacted LG customer care who were very helpful but were unable to rectify the problem over the telephone. They asked me to email them a photo of the picture which I did, and after their engineers had looked at it, concluded that the TV was faulty. As it was a discontinued model and John Lewis had no more in stock, they offered me a full refund which I accepted. Needless to say, having to repackage the whole set and take it back to their store (they were unable to give me an acceptable collection time) caused me and my wife considerable inconvenience. Clearly not an experience to be recommended!
I bought an LG 47LM860 four months ago. Whilst the picture is every bit as good as Which? say, it had a very disturbing problem on HD channels: every fifteen seconds or so the picture would flash - like a flash camera going off.LG blamed the signal at first, and I was sent on a wild goose chase around aerial engineers and the broadcasting authority responsible for signal strength (100% in my area). LG finally accepted the tv was faulty. A month ago the retailer changed it for a new one BUT the fault is still there, albeit reduced to flashing every couple of minutes or so. It is very distracting, and I cannot live with it (- why should I for a £1200 tv?)I am now looking at other tvs to replace it.
