The LG LH5700 is a budget 1080p TV. It has slightly below average picture quality when viewed from in front, but performs better than most other TVs when viewed at an angle. It handles motion very well due to the low response time. It also has low input lag and the smart features and apps work well.

LG LH5700 Design Picture
Curved : No

The TV features a basic design, very similar to other budget LG TVs such as the UH6100. This isn't a bad thing, as it will look alright in any room. The borders and stand are made of plastic, which is quite shiny but collects fingerprints. The back has a textured finish.

Stand
LG LH5700 Stand Picture

The stand is almost as wide as the TV. It is made of plastic, but supports the TV quite well.

Footprint of the 43" TV stand: 8.6" x 28.5"

Back

Wall Mount : Vesa 200x200

The back of the TV is also quite simple. It won't turn heads but doesn't look bad. It has a textured finish, similar to the LG UH6100. If wall mounted, some of the inputs will be difficult to access.

Borders

Borders : 0.71" (1.8 cm)

The borders are of an average thickness and are made of plastic.

Thickness

Max Thickness : 3.03" (7.7cm)

The LF5700 is quite bulky when viewed from the side. The bottom of the TV sticks out a little bit more, and is the widest point. If wall mounted, it will protrude a little.

Picture Quality

The LG LH5700 has a below average picture quality. When viewed in a dark room, the blacks do not look really deep due to the low native contrast ratio and the lack of local dimming. The gray and black uniformity are both average. Peak brightness is not so good  and here once again the lack of local dimming can't help to make small highlights brighter. The color gamut, gradient and upscaling performance are good enough for normal content with nothing bad to notice. Finally, where the LH5700 is really good is in the viewing angle, where it easily surpasses a big majority of other budget TVs.

The peak brightness performance is not really good. Situated just above the 200 cd/m² range, it will be okay for a dark room, but will certainly not be enough to fight the glare of bright lights or from a window during the day. Since this TV does not have a local dimming feature, the brightness remains the same no matter what is shown on screen.

The LH5700 has poor gray uniformity. It uses a direct lit backlight and suffers from the same problem often seen in similar TVs where you tend to see darker and brighter spots where the LEDs of the backlight are situated. In that case, it is not as bad as we have seen before with other budget LG TVs, like in the case of the LH5750, but it is far from perfect. Dirty screen effect will be present in certain type of content, like in sport or in video games with uniform color background, but since the majority of the dark and uneven zones are located more on the outskirts of the screen, the dirty screen effect will be minimal.

The viewing angle is good for this LG TV. At 30 degree, it is superior to VA panel TVs but does not surpass the best IPS TVs out there or the LG OLED TVs.

The black uniformity is below average for the LH5700. Clouding is present on almost all the screen just leaving the 4 corners dark.

Similar to other LG TVs, the LH5700 has a 20 points calibration system which works well to reduce errors in the white balance. Unlike the white balance calibration, the color space calibration is less useful and is not really responsive. After calibration, the colors remain a bit off with a dE of 0.33, but for most people this is a very good result. You can find our calibration settings here.

The LG LH5700 has some pretty strong long-lasting image retention. In our test, the retention lasted until the 8 minutes of recovery, which is a bit long when compare to other IPS TV. This is not a very good score for people looking to use their TVs as a PC monitor, since the retained image might be visible when changing content or input.

Motion blur performance is very good, due to the low response time. For fast paced content this is a good result. Movies from a blu-ray player or DVDs appear smooth.

Smart OS : WebOS 3.0

The LG LH5700 comes with the same WebOS 3.0 used in the majority of LG TVs and you can expect the same performance and ease to use. Unlike the higher end LG models, this implemented version of WebOS 3.0 lacks the on screen pointer and it is married with a basic remote. Besides this difference, the app ecosystem remains almost the same and includes all the big streaming apps like Amazon Video, Netflix, hulu, YouTube and you can expect apps to be well maintained and to be up to date. You can also access your own videos and photos stored on an USB drive. Like the LG LH5750, this TV has only 2 HDMI and this could present some problems for people that have a wide variety of devices that use these specific ports. You can fix this issue by getting a HDMI switch.

Bottom right: Sony W650D (KDL40W650D).  Unlike our other photographs, this picture wasn't taken under a controlled environment, so do not draw conclusions from it.

The LG LH5700 is a budget 1080p TV in quite a competitive market. When viewed from in front or in a dark room it has below average picture quality. As such it doesn't really stand out from the competition, but may be a good choice for those with wider seating and on a budget. Keep this in mind when viewing our recommendations below.

LG UH6100
43" 49"

The LG UH6100 is an entry level "4k" TV, and the next level up from the LG LH5700. It has an alternative pixel structure which isn't as good as other 4k TVs. It offers slightly better picture quality due to the higher resolution, but otherwise disappointing results with worse dark scene performance. For gamers, the higher input lag and worse motion performance may also be an issue. If you don't require the higher resolution, save the money and go with the LG LH5700.

Vizio D Series 1080p 2016
32" 40" 43" 43" 48" 50" 55" 60" 65" 70"

The Vizio D Series 1080p 2016 is a similarly priced 1080p TV, available in a much wider range of sizes. It has better picture quality and dark scene performance when viewed from directly in front, but degrades rapidly at an angle. For gamers, the low motion blur and input lag are great. The smart platform is not as good as LG's offering. If the smart platform is a priority or you have wider seating, go with the LG LH5700. Otherwise the Vizio D Series 1080p 2016 is a better choice.

TCL FS3800
32" 40" 50"

The TCL FS3800 can be found for slightly cheaper for those on a strict budget. It features better picture quality from in front, and better dark scene performance. Unfortunately when viewed at a slight angle, this degrades rapidly. It has very similar motion performance and input lag to the LG LH5700. For those with wider seating, go with the LG LH5700. Otherwise save the money and buy the TCL FS3800.

Sony W650D
40" 48" 55"

The Sony W650D has slightly better picture quality when viewed from directly in front, but this degrades rapidly at an angle. It doesn't really stand out in any one area, with average performance all round. Those who plan to watch TV with wide seating, such as in a living room or for sports are better off with the LG LH5700. For other uses there are better choices out there.

Do you think you can capture another motion blur test on the lowest backlight setting? I've noticed it's backlight frequency is very similar to the Sony X930C set to clearness 5 and it would be great if it looked as good as I imagined. I wouldn't mind if the screen is dark as my room has decent light control and I usually play video games 90% of the time at night. I imagine the Samsung J6200 would have similar results as well. Thank You!
Here's a shot of the motion blur with minimum backlight. The horizontal scales of the two backlight images are different (-0.02 to 0.02 seconds on the X930C, and 0 to 0.02 seconds on the LH5700) so the LH5700 is actually flickering twice as fast. As such, it looks more like Clearness 3 on the X930C, and probably not as good as you had hoped.
We are not taking any more questions for this product because we no longer have it in our lab.
