      Comments about LG 42" Black Flat Panel LCD HDTV:

      Purchased 1 worked extremely well, so well in fact that I went back to the store and purchased another so I can have 2 screens working off of 1 computer. The power saving features are a little qwerky but the screen quality, resolution and price more than make up for it. The no glare screen is a big plus also .

          Comments about LG 42" Black Flat Panel LCD HDTV:

          I've had this TV for over 2 years and it does everything i need a tv to do, sure its not as energy efficient as the led counterpart but for the price and picture aswell as reliability, its bar none! Only minor complaint is the inability to have a sort of "smart" feature but it doesnt detract from the overall TV one bit!

              No adjustments needed except taking it off energy saver and the screen brightened up. People who have purchased other similar TVs from varying manufacturers and come over have commented, "how come ours doesn't look like that"? Sometimes it is almost surreal and it looks like I am watching live performances. Combined with LG Sound Bar and LG BluRay I have an awesome home entertainment package

                  If you are not worried about having a smart TV or 3D tech, then this is the TV for you. The picture quality is great, and it looks awesome running in 120hz. I have had mine for over a year now, and it has run with zero issues.

                      Pros-Great picture, great sound. 1080p high-definition with 120 refresh rate makes for a great TV. It is simple. If you don't need a Smart TV with internet and 3D capability and all the other stuff they have available, this is a TV for you. Nothing extravagant, but able to fit my needs. Cons-Honestly, nothing really stands out to me.

                              This TV is great. The picture is amazing and it is very easy to use. My only complaint (and it is minor) is I wish there was a way to lock the stand from pivoting. My kids find it fun to push the TV back and forth.

                                  Comments about LG 42" Black Flat Panel LCD HDTV:

                                  We waited until our cathode ray tube TV died before buying an HD flat panel TV. Our most recent TV had a decent run (only 7 years), but not great. (We've had some TVs last for a couple decades.) We like to use things as long as they still work; we're not ones to buy something when we have a serviceable enough product already. So our desire for getting our money's worth with a quality, reliable product is high. We decided on this model (42LK520) after our research, and have been pleased so far. Great picture, great options for adjusting color, screen size and ratio, de-blur and anti-judder settings, and a number of other features. Has an RF connector, USB port, HDMI ports, A/V cable ports --- everything we wanted. Great sound, so there was no need to buy a sound system. Sturdy, too --- one of our toddlers likes to try and "play" with the TV, and the TV has held up. Very happy with this television. Hope it lasts at least as long as the old TV, if not longer. Time will tell.
