Comments about LG 42" Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

I have loved my television since I purchased it in early 2010. The picture is great and I have not had any problems with any of the functionality or connectivity. I have it paired with the LBH975 surround sound system and it works flawlessly. This version doesn't come with the internet connectivity, but the surround system does, so everything I could want to do with my setup is available to me and it all functions great! I would give the TV a straight five stars except for the fact that it is getting older now. That being said, I am completely pleased with the LG products in my home and would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking.

                  I checked plasma and LCD. Easily decided on the LCD and the different brands. After seeing the quality of the picture and the USB inputs available, the choice of LG was not difficult.

                      Very high quality picture and good sound, but lip sync was a problem when using the HDMI input. Even after service tech came and upgraded software, lip sync still noticeable. SO I just have to use Component inputs. That is the only feature that keeps me from giving this all 5 stars.

                          Picked up this 42" LCD for my bedroom and it is awesome. All the features work as promised. The low-glare screen is perfect for my bedroom making any reflections from the large window that is opposite of the TV a real non-issue. The best thing I like about the TV is its style--very sleek. It speaker-less design is attractive but the sound is terrific.

                              This was my first time buying a flat screen tv. I did a lot of research on line and through friends. I only heard good things about lg, so once i knew the brand i wanted it was an easy decision to make. It was very competitvely priced and the picture and ease of use is amazing.
