An Outstanding HDTV for Super Bowl XLVII

On January 20th, the 49ers overcame a seventeen point deficit to the Altanta Falcons – capturing a coveted spot in Super Bowl XLVII. Their opponents this year are the Baltimore Ravens, a relatively young franchise with an impressive track record. The winner is still anyone’s guess, but one thing is certain... if you’re watching the game on the LG 47” 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV, you’ll experience a level of clarity and fluidity that's nothing short of exceptional.

LG 3.JPGThe Ravens were founded 1996 after the Cleveland Browns relocated to Baltimore. Super Bowl victors in 2000, they’ve been fighting to regain the championship ever since. Admittedly, the Ravens are a much different team than the 49ers. A veteran franchise, the Niners owned the Super Bowl throughout the eighties – capturing an epic four wins during that decade, with another victory in 1994.

The two teams met in 2011, when the Ravens ruined Thanksgiving for the 49ers – sacking their quarterback nine times and winning the game 16-6. This time around, the 49ers have a new weapon in their arsenal – coach Jim Harbaugh, who was once the Ravens’ own QB back in 1998.  Odds makers are leaning towards San Francisco, but the tough and hungry Ravens may actually take this year’s victory – which will look and sound amazing on LG’s 47” powerhouse. Let’s take a look at its specs.

Performance & Power

Relatively lightweight and boasting a depth of less than an inch-and-a-half, the LG 47” 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV is easy to install and a pleasure to watch. LG’s Picture Wizard II makes it simple to configure your TV’s settings, thanks to an intuitive series of calibration tools. Connectivity comes via a reasonably populated bank of inputs, including ports for your HDMI, component, composite, and USB-compatible devices.
Equipped with LG’s Triple XD engine technology, this 47” HDTV delivers incredible color depth and superior on-screen contrast – so viewers can look forward to an ultra-realistic picture with an incredible  Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 4000000 to 1. Boasting full 1080p peformance in jaw-dropping full HD, the LG 47” 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV offers almost double the pixel resolution compared to standard HDTVs. When combined with TruMotion 120Hz, the results are nothing short of awesome... allowing you to enjoy outstanding fluidity and blur-free motion as the Super Bowl unfolds.

The 47” LG HDTV features its own sensor-controlled edge-lit LED display, which auto-adjusts its on-screen image to match the lighting levels in your viewing area – letting you enjoy optimal contrast, regardless of what time zone you’re watching the game from. Digital Dolby audio is delivered via a pair of 10 watt speakers, which are amply enhanced by LG’s Clear Voice II technology. It’s the perfect television to capture each quip and comment of Super Bowl XLVII’s play-by-play.

Backed by a year-long warranty and currently priced $699.99, the LG 47” 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV is an excellent way to enhance any Super Bowl party without seeing your wallet sacked at the ten yard line.
