Television is used in the family room and it has incredible picture quality. We really like the flexibility of it being a SmartTV because we use the streaming Netflix capability often and this tv makes it simple to do that. We are thinking about purchasing another for my parents for Christmas because we really like it.

Pro - Superb picture quality, 1080p, 120hz, great color depth. - Nice remote - Media box connection is flawless, very simple to use, wireless, no interference - DLNA support, can pull the video files, pictures, music directly off computer in other room. Access it directly of hard drive. - Numerous video input selections. Con - Smart TV apps are trick to spend more of your money. All apps require to spend money to get any value out of them. Personally, I could do without this feature. - Audio options are poor - Automatic input selection. Prefer not to have this, goes off when I don’t care for it. - Motion wand is worthless. Does not move flawlessly, poor try to copy Wii remote. Overall, TV is great, don’t bother hooking it up to internet unless you are willing to waste money.

      Once you go smart tv you never go back... love everything about my tv except the premium preinstalled apps are slow & not very efficient (you tube, Netflix, etc... pretty sure that is not issue with product, rather the software)

          This is one of the finest, clearest, and really sharp flat screen TVs I have seen in stores or in friend's homes. I love all the features that are user friendly for the "older generation". Also, all the apps that are available with this TV. I have recommended this TV to others, and my daughter bought one.

                  We have owned this product since 9/2011 and have not experienced anything but satisfaction with this TV. The clarity is excellent, along with all of the other features. We purchased this after owning a larger LG LED TV, and will continue to be LG owners! Highly recommend this product!

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

                      Being 67, I've purchased many things, this TV is one of the best purchased of all time. I expected the picture and the features to be as great as they are, but I was pleasantly surprised to the fair quality of the sound of the built in speakers. Connection with an additional AN-WL100W wireless transmitter makes for a very clean wall installation. Only drawback is that, now my wife want an LG TV or her room. Now I hope their web site get a little easier to search for her TV.
