I absolutely LOVE this tv! Purchased this LG tv almost six months ago and still love it as much as day one. I wanted the largest tv that would fit in my entertainment center and after online research this model was one of my choices. Once I saw this LG on display, the picture quality at such a great price made the choice an easy one. This is our first flatscreen tv and there is just no comparison to the old bulky box tv we had. The picture is so crisp and clear. The colors are so vivid and lifelike. Great sound. Setup was a breeze and all our components were easy to hook up. I particularly like the side jacks-we are able to plug in our karaoke machine without having to get to the back of the tv. We have gotten so many compliments on our tv. My 16 year old son liked playing his game system on it so much so that he bought himself a 42 inch LG tv for his room. We are very happy with our purchases and would recommend LG tvs for their quality and great value as well as making tv viewing a better experience.

I've owned much better TV's for the price -- the remote is the biggest problem ( although there are others ) if you are not standing DIRECTLY in front & close to the set, it just doesn't work properly --- I would never buy another one.

                          I just replaced one of those old heavy TV's with this new flat screen TV which was ultra light and easy to setup. The screen is bright, and I've begun using it in different modes including DVD via HDMI cabling, and a laptop via same cabling. I am now moving to connecting up a PC switch box so I can use laptop from my easy chair without cables to show PowerPoint presentations to my guests.

                              I bought my LCD 42" TV just a week after having bought a new LG dishwasher. Both are superb, high performing products, stylish, easy to set up, easy to use. The LG code number on my TV was instantly recognized by my ISP who also provides TV cable. So now the whole family watches HD movies, news and other special interest programs that come right into our living room clear, bright and life size. This could only be surpassed by a hologram!

                                  This is a solid product. We have had this for a few months and are pleased. The lack of the ARC HDMI compatibility is a minor inconvenience.

                                      I bought my LG 42" Diagonal 1080p Full HD LCD TV for my daughter and I when we moved into our new place and it is wonderful. We watch our favorite shows and movies on it and we certainly get more than our money's worth of enjoyment from it. It was very easy to set it up and the menu options and settings were a breeze to understand (and it's stylishly good-looking to boot). It was very reasonably priced and I'd do it again in a heartbeat knowing what I now know about this great product. As a matter of fact, the more we use it, the more we love it. Thanks LG!
