    It sure beats my old TV! The picture is so clear and bright and there are so many options for picture, sound, etc. I really like it except for one thing. The volume has to be changed constantly for different channels. Maybe that's because I use a roof antenna for reception and that affects the signals.

            Comments about LG 37" Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

            Just wished I'd bought several of this model. For the price, it has the best picture I've seen in the same range/category LCD and even sharper than some higher end products. It has all the features you could possibly want, need and is very slick looking and compliments any room you have it in. This is one purchase that I have no regrets about and will be purchasing another LG without hesitation in the near future. It's been discontinued but I'm convinced of the LG quality and am confident I'll get the same satisfaction from whichever LCD HDTV I select.

              This was my first flat screen. I was excited to finally get one. but, not long after I realized the sound was horrible. I had to put it way up there to hear anything. At that point, you risk blowing the speakers. Also, my home theatre speakers were not compatible, even with ALL the plugs in the back. Overall, happy with it because it was a gift.

                      This is my first HDTV, and while it sure beats SD, I think I'd probably go with something a little spiffier next time, money permitting. It's got plenty of HDMI ports for my needs, and the picture is good, but the speakers are weak, and I had trouble syncing the sound to the audio. (I will say: LG customer service people are very helpful and committed.)

                          Upon my return from Iraq earlier this year I decided to turn in my old TV and purchase a new LCD TV. After reading reviews and talking with friends and family who had purchased LCD and Plasma TV's, I decided to go with the LG. I purchased the model 37LG30 and have never regreted it. Out of the box it was very easy to setup and use. I mounted it on a wall in my entertainment room. Hooking up other components to the TV is very easy. There are a lot of inputs and I currently have VHS, DVD, Computer inputs to it and one output to my surround sound stereo. Great TV, would highly recommend to anyone looking for a good quality LCD.

                            difference in HDTV programming from SDTV is huge.As stated above, my only real complaint is that you cannot adjust the advanced picture options for all inputs at once, instead you need to set it up for each input individually. Considering how in-depth these settings are, this can be tedious when you have multiple gaming systems, cable, DVD, etc connected and are forced to set each one up. This is something you only have to really do once though, so I'm not subtracting points for it. I suggest using the CNET suggested settings, or popping in and THX DVD and using their optomizer.I also do not have a problem with the wash-out at extreme angles since I use this as a bedroom TV.

                              Best TV I have ever seen. The detail is amazing. It is better than seeing things live. Only criticism a some glare on black and while shows and it is occasionally overwhelmed by a Sport Center host's tie. Can't wait to go home and watch.
