    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.

    I bought a new LG 42 inches TV, 42LK450, and pretty happy about its video quality initially. However, the remote broken within 5 months. Worst thing to find out is remote has no warranty; even you could purchase a new remote still no guarantee it will not broken in few months. A TV without an useful remote is not user friendly. I am not sure any customer will buy a TV without remote capability. If that is the case, why the remote has such an incompatible quality vs. TV ?

                Not on;y are the different plug ins a plus the HDMI also offers a fast and effective change from component to component. The best feature I find is not needing the manual and an extra 15 minutes to set everything up. Everything is on the screen and very user friendly. In the near future I will purchase more components and will look at the LG brand first. If all continues with the ease of use it will be the only brand I look at.

                            The PQ and feature set this TV offers is good for the price and is an excellent value. Colors are highly accurate and viewing angles from left to right are wide for an LCD. It has advanced picture settings like 10-pt grayscale and 2D CMS that typically are only found on much pricier models. I have the version with the S-IPS panel and aside from bright black levels that are tinted blue, the PQ from this TV is very good to excellent.

                                This is our first HDTV. We did a lot of shopping and research before buying. After 6 months, I would definitely buy this TV again. It has all the features we need, great picture quality, we love it. There are only two things that I wouldn't rate excellent: the sound, as in most flat panels, is just okay (but due to the necessary small enclosure it does meet my expectations; it just isn't great if turned up past a "normal" volume) and the other thing is the auto-sensing for brightness; we've found that not to make the experience better and we leave it off. Otherwise, this is a great product.

                                        This TV is wonderful! The picture is crystal clear and makes it seem as you are sitting right at the baseball field, on the boat with the fishermen, and sitting with the news anchors on the evening newscast. Absolutely the best TV I have ever owned.

                                            we decided to go bigger and get a flat screen, did alot of research and found this the best TV as far as price, looks, and the clearest picture for watching all the movies and shows we love. This was by far the best purchase we ever made, and am very pleased with it!
