I love this TV, it is simple to setup and use, and even better to watch. The picture quality is great with bluerays, DVDs, and anything else you could want to watch. All edges are crisp and clear and the color is great, even in situations with a large amount of light in the room. I have packed this thing around town several times, for football parties, LAN parties, new houses, you name it, and its dealt with everything I've thrown at it like a champ. The only down side, is the response from the remote is a little slow. sometimes it takes like a quarter second or so to actually do what I ask (like change to a different menu or make some change in settings. I have watched all my other friends' TVs and they are OK, but I still like mine the best.

The picture is excellent, but the sound has to be constantly raised or lowered, depending on commercials or changing stations. I sit with the remote control in my hand, because of the change in volume. And yes, I do have the level control turned on. This really takes away from the good points.

          This has to be one of the best TV's that were available at that time. With 3 HDMI inputs, this has been a great addition to our Entertainment System. The picture is way above what I expected & sound through the sound system makes it an Indoor Theater. I will look again in the future for a LG TV every time.

              from Toledo, OH, USA

              Comments about LG 42" Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

              Pros:
              Great picture quality, even when viewing analog CATV channels. Very user-friendly menu system.

              Cons:
              After approximately 2-years, the blue power on indicator stopped functioning, however, this does not seem to have negatively impacted the TV's performance otherwise.
              After approximately 4 years, the remote control started acting funky, even with fresh Alkaline batteries it became necessary to stand no more than 6 feet from TV to get the remote to function properly.

                      Love the TV! Great picture, great sound, great features! However, recently, it has a squealing noise that I have contacted LG about. I am currently awaiting a response from tech service on this issue. I shall revamp this review after hearing from them.

                          This was my first LCD television. At the time, these models were just coming out and extremely pricey. I have not had a single issue with this television, whereas I have had problems with other brand names without near the amount of usage this has. Very proud to still have this television, and continue to watch it on a daily basis.
