          Comments about LG 42" Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

          All my friends that have their own flat panel TV's always think theirs is the best. Then when they come over and see mine they are blown away by the clarity. Most people say it looks almost too good due to the 240Hz. They always walk away jealous and a bit disappointed in their own TV back home. Sorry friends, you should have asked my first...

                The TruMotion is an unnecessary feature. It tends to add motion blur with blu-rays rather than eliminating them.

                            Excellent picture quality and color, very good sound from internal speakers. My only complaint is that the fit and finish of the cabinet trim could be better, it's kind of wavy on mine. Overall a winner.

                                    We upgraded from a flatscreen TV a couple of months ago. This model has multiple inputs and was easy to setup. The only minor complaint is that there is NO S-Video input, so our DVR had to be connected via component video. Also, the menus are different than our previous TVs, so it took some searching to find what we needed during some setup functions. The picture is crisp and clear. Rapid motion is very lifelike, almost to a 3D quality. It is not as clear with standard DTV connections, but with a digital or HD connection the video is stellar. The audio is good, but we're using a home theater system. I would highly recommend this model. Bravo, LG.

                                          This is an awesome TV with great contrast ratios and color depth. I would recommend this TV to anyone. The only I recommend doing is to be sure you use the correct HDMI cables or the Audio my be delay from the picture. and make sure both the TV and the Cable box are compatible with that version of HDMI. But over all an amazing TV
