        Got this TV second hand, and i have to say i was QUITE impressed with it. The overall picture quality is great, like you can reach out and touch whatever it is you're watching. The sound quality from the speakers is great, and the net apps make it so much easier for me to access my netflix account. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

        Great TV-wish it had an audio out

        By Tom

        from MA

        Comments about LG 42" Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

        This is a great TV. The internet streaming works great and so does the rest of the features. My only complaint is that I wish I could send the audio out to my audio system instead of using the built in speakers. When watching a video streamed over the internet there is no way to send the audio to my audio system like I do for everything else.

            This TV is great, I love everything about it. THe color is really like being there. Me and my wife look are wating shows and saying "Do you see how clear that is, wow it looks so real." The internet hookup was easy, I am now putting DVDs on one of the computers on my network and watching them in full HD plays so many forms of meda all of my downloaded movies play also. If your thinking about getting this think no more, JUST GET IT! you wont be sorry.

                Absolutely love this TV. It does the TV stuff well, but it also has the net enabled apps on top of that. It's been great to have VUDU for HD on demand movies, and the YouTube app is perfect for showing off that stupid video you stumbled across ealier in the day. I haven't had a single problem with this TV in the 6+ months I've owned it.

                  With this TV, you get what you pay for. The picture looks great, although not as good as the (far) more expensive televisions. All normal people will be absolutely thrilled with this TV. If you're more of a techy, you'll be satisfied but not overwhelmed.

                        Comments about LG 42" Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

                        This TV almost gets it. Keeping in mind the relative features for this price range, this television cannot be beat. It has an amazing picture, lots of features, built-in VuDu, Netflix, and other support. The ONLY problem I ran into after 18 months of ownership is a bug in the Netflix app where it says: "Sorry, that title cannot be watched instantly at this time. Please try again later or play a different movie." Some titles will play but often times it is not the ones you are wanting to play. Even going out of the Netflix app and trying again will not work. So to help others with the same frustrating issue, I will say that all we did is turn off the TV and turn it back on. The title would play fine and the error wouldn't come back for a few movies. We ended up doing that a few times but it has not happened lately, even with no TV software update. So I'm not sure if it's "fixed" now or not but perhaps my experience will help others. Aside from that frustration (on a very new app), I am very pleased. Since I don't expect the latest-and-greatest to be 100% flawless, I gave LG some leeway here, especially for the price of this set. Ciao, Brandon
