          We've had our LG for about a year. The picture is still bright and crystal clear. Cable programming looks great, but the over-the-air reception using rabbit ears is outstanding.

                  My wife and I were looking to purchase a plasma TV until I saw the LG 42LH90 right next to the plasma I was going to purchase. Although the LG cost a few hundred dollars more, it has such an outstanding picture we had to have it. Before I purchased it I read reviews at CNET and Consummer Reports. Both of this reviews listed it as a "recommended". I have 2 other LG pieces of equipment: VCR/DVR and Entertainment Center. Way to go LG!!

                      The picture quality is outstanding, especially movies never looked better even if they are not high res. I also like the ability to switch aspect ratios and then to adjust the zoom feature.

                          My wife hates technology. She thinks watching television is a huge waste of time. She doesn't understand why one replaces a perfectly good TV (or any still-working product) with another one. But when I turned on my new LG for the first time, she stopped dead in her tracks. "Wow," she said. Great color. Great resolution. A pleasure to watch.

                                This is our second LG LCD (first one being 47LG50, purchased in 2008). It's a great display with good styling, vivid pics, great contrast and better audio. My only issue is that there is no ethernet to connect to web direct. Will have to use a network enabled bluray player or PS3.

                                      This particular TV has been discontinued. If you can find it at a dealer you should really consider purchasing it. No PC hookups-- so what the picture is great
