          Old tube TV died! This product was on sale at retailer I use frequently. New technology, good size for my needs/wants. Didn't need three guys to transport it, installed quickly, directions well-written/presented. Continues to perform well after two years+. Would I consider other LG products? Most certainly!

                      We bought this to replace an aging 20" TV. The picture is amazing and works flawlessly. We use it mainly to watch movies and I also have it hooked up to my computer to play video games. Overall a great TV.

                              We purchased the TV in Noveber of 2009. Unpacking and setup were very easy. The picture is excellent as is the sound, although I hooked it up to my surround sound. I don't run the surround sound all of the time. So far it has been all that I could ask for. My only issue is with the menu. It is rather difficult to use. Also the manual is on a CD which I loaded on to my computer. It makes it difficult to set up the set and to keep running back to the computer. It is a rather large manual to print out. I have printed specific pages to help. Other than that, I am very pleased with the set.

                                    This is a very nice TV. Color is great, sound is pretty good, could be better. Only problem I have with this TV so far is its lack of inputs. No S-video. Had to buy an adapter to hook up my older laptop.
