            Comments about LG 42" Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

            my wife and I have enjoyed this television since it was first hooked up. It stayed in the box for a couple of months until we moved in our new house (a year ago at the end of this month). The picture quality is amazing. We have HD satellite service and wouldn't have it any other way. I would only ask for another HDMI connection. We have a HTS connected with a bluray and I LOVE THE QUALITY! The picture is beautiful. Just the other day (for the first time) I connected a flashdrive and watche a slideshow presentation of our wedding and I felt like I was THERE all over again because the pictures were so beautiful. The speakers on the TV have an amazing sound quality also. I really get excited when I connect the Wii because thats beautiful also (the streamed videos are amazing also). Here is the shocker... there is even a VCR CONNECTED AND VIDEOS ON THAT ARE AS IF WE ARE WATCHING HD. I've been forced to keep all of my VHS tapes because the tv makes them beautiful. I COULD NOT BE MORE PLEASED!!! We will be purchasing another LG for the bedroom within the month. Proud to be a part of the LG family!

                        Have owned the 42LD450 since May 2011, no problems setting up and has been flawless since. Only wished it had one more HDMI port. Picture quality is good and is not washed out when viewing from different angles. Very pleased with its good performance and great value.

                            I bought this TV for our bedroom, and it is exactly what I needed. It won't absolutely amaze you, but the picture quality is good and the audio is sufficient. The audio has a setting for enhanced dialogue which is helpful for watching from bed. The only thing I'm not a huge fan of is that it sits decently precariously on the stand and wobbles when you walk by the armoire.

                                I bought this tv as a replacement for a much more expensive Toshiba tv. I love it and wouldn't go back. The best feature is the sound options, allowing you to make background and music quieter while making the dialogue stand out. My only complaint is the number of hdmi slots, wish it had more than 2.

                                    This was my first flat screen TV and for the price it was spot on. It do not have a ton of features, but that is also a good thing because of them are uselss. My real only complaint is that when watching a sporting event and the volume is at a high level it becomes distorted.
