Features:

Built-In Side Loading Progressive Scan DVD Player - Save space with the built-in progressive scan DVD player. Side loading player upconverts DVDs to near 720p resolution and features LG “Super-Multi” technology which plays back almost any recordable disc based media.

HD Resolution - High definition television is the highest performance segment of the DTV system used in the US. It’s a wide screen, high-resolution video image, coupled with multi-channel, compact-disc-quality sound.

AV Mode - One button on the remote that can make your picture look great no matter what you're watching!

Clear Voice - Enables adjustment to voice frequency ensuring clear sound despite loud background noise.

Intelligent Sensor - Automatically adjusts the TV's light and color settings to make sure you always get the best possible picture in the event of fluctuations in light or color entering the room.

Invisible Speaker System - LG’s 2008 line of TVs include a unique invisible speaker system, tuned by renowned audio expert, Mr. Mark Levinson. Speakers are embedded in strategic spots behind the front cabinet and use minute vibrations to turn the entire front bezel into the speaker system. The result is a clean, polished look, and enhanced audio by increasing the “sweet spot” giving a wider sound field.

Does the job at a good price. Works simply and well. Some idiot designed the remote control and for older people -- me -- it can be a little hard to see the small blue letters against the black, but you quickly learn to remember where they're positioned.

Picture looks great and built-in DVD works fine. But the base is not stable, it's hard to switch back from DVD mode to live TV, and at
[$] you're paying a big premium for the DVD feature.

      I love this TV (and ALL my LG products). Some friends had never heard of LG TVs...I put them right and now they notice them wherever they go. I would buy another, and another. I expect that they will, also.

            The TV is great! My only complaints are the lack of a backlight on the remote control, and I occasionally hear a buzz from vibrations in the TV's casing.

                Comments about LG 32" Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV With Built In DVD Player:

                Ireally enjoy the 32LG40. Picture quality is excellant (especially flesh tones). The swival base allows me to insert DVDs' as I have an audio rack next to the TV; I just swival, insert DVD & swival back. The built in up-convert DVD player is one reason I purchased this TV. It upconverts regular DVDs' to near HD Quality. I read various reviews from online sources before I purchased the TV. The only negative is the side viewing angle isn't the best (I don't really consider this a negative as most people don't watch TV way to the side anyway). 3 HDMI inputs, computer input & USB connection for software updates. Excellent value for the money!

                    It been a while since I purchased a new TV, but boy am I lucky. It is the Prettiest thing I have seen in a while, and I have been looking for a while. The picture is so good, even with the sun shining on it, it doesn't have a GLARE, other TV's (well !!). It the best thing since slice bread, and I really mean it. Thanks LG.

I recentlty upgraded my cable to get HDTV on this set and it is fabulous!! If you are thinking about it do not hesitate. You won't be sorry.

                                This television has a great display. The built-in DVD player isn't worth the extra price though. In less than a year, the DVD player has gone out. It does not recognize disks. I recommend purchasing a television and DVD player separately.
