      I purchased this TV to replace a three year old LCD TV that was not backlit with LEDs. Overall this TV is nice, however, the only thing I am not pleased with is how the colors on the screen seem to wash out if you view the TV from an angle on either side. This TV is very thin by design and takes up much less room than the old one. The LED backlighting can be appreciated because it has the ability to darken certain ares of the display better than others (unlike a florescent bulb) and shows black backgrounds as very dark. This makes dark scenes in shows or movies more lifelike! The backlighting adjusts to the available light in the room due to the built in sensor and seems to change frequently and is noticeable when scenes change from very light to very dark. The menus on this model are the same as another LG we have in the house and we like it better than other brands.

                    Actually this is my second Hdtv and has better color and sharper image than my other. Although the other set is an older generation set. The colors are fantastic and so clear and vivid.

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

                                            I purchased this TV to replace a three year old LCD TV that was not backlit with LEDs. Overall this TV is nice, however, the only thing I am not pleased with is how the colors on the screen seem to wash out if you view the TV from an angle on either side. This TV is very thin by design and takes up much less room than the old one. The LED backlighting can be appreciated because it has the ability to darken certain ares of the display better than others (unlike a florescent bulb) and shows black backgrounds as very dark. This makes dark scenes in shows or movies more lifelike! The backlighting adjusts to the available light in the room due to the built in sensor and seems to change frequently and is noticeable when scenes change from very light to very dark. The menus on this model are the same as another LG we have in the house and we like it better than other brands.
