      Comments about LG 42" LCD Black Flat Panel LCD HDTV:

      The TV looks great and the price tag is a huge plus!

      My only gripe is that we use headphones sometimes for when the baby is sleeping and that sound would not come out of the headphones if they are connected straight to the TV, they would have to be connected to your DVD/bluray player instead. I am not sure if I just haven't figured this out but we used a similar samsung tv before and it was easier to hookup headsets.

      Other than that, its a real great TV. Good value, good picture quality and good sound!

      Service and delivery comments:

      I had a nightmare with the delivery. It took 3 attempts total to get the TV, the previous 2 left the TV damaged and had to be shipped back. This is not Abt's fault but the courier >coughUPScough<. I had to wait a month just to get the TV.

      Abt was very prompt and professional though with helping me out with my order. As soon as I told them of my unfortunate situation, they quickly shipped out a replacement that same day I reported the problem.

        Bought this to replace a 14 year old Trinitron. It was the biggest TV I could fit into the old cabinet. It only took a few minutes to setup with the cable box. It really helps if you have an AV receiver with a surroound sound system. Even with the 60Hz refresh rate, football games look great.

          Besides having to wait 3 weeks on this tv because it was backordered which was very frustrating, it was worth the wait. This is my 1st flatscreen TV and we have had it for a week & its REALLY amazing. The picture is SO sharp and so clear & the sound is teriffic (surround sound). I dont even need to get a soundbar or anything to make the sound better. The menu is very easy to operate and my husband loves how great the detail is on his football/baseball games. This tv for the price and the free delivery is a really great deal. I would totally recommend this tv.
