      I bought a 32 inch for the bedroom, as the bedroom is small, the TV was perfect. In fact, found myself in the bedroom watching more TV than the large front room set ! OUTSTANDING picture and color ! Finally, for the SUPER BOWL, replaced the front room with a 42inch , and I couldnt be happier ! Both sets, color, picture, sound, all just amazing ! Could not be more satisfied !

      In the manual is says "If a fixed image displays on the TV screen for a long period of time, it will become imprinted and become a permanent disfigurement on the screen. This is "image burn" or "burn-in" and not covered by warranty." Well this tv has a few picture adjustment ratio settings and no matter what one you adjust it to, there is always a little black bar on the bottom of the screen. On our cable box there is a black bar, on blu ray and dvd there are black bars. Usually most tv's offer some type of adjustment on the zoom setting. This tv on the zoom ratio setting will leave a little black bar. We can't use this tv because of this reason and i'm sure this would be so easy to fix if only there was a minutes consideration given to this problem.

        Best Uses

          We replaced an older 50 inch LG Plasma tv that could be used as a space heater in a small room with a 42 inch LG plasma that runs much cooler and costs a lot less to run. We chose plasma because of the high refresh rate and good viewing angle. My eyes are more sensitive to motion blur at lower refresh rates. The 42 inch doesn't show the finer detail that the 50 inch did but is still excellent. Receiver sensitivity is excellent which we needed because we use an outside antenna. Sound is good but would be better with a sound bar. Would like to be able to fine tune a little better for a more crisp picture. Some people like the smooth look but I like detail. Detail in this tv is good but a little more ability for user tweaking (fine tuning)would be nice. Inputs are enough for us but evaluate your needs before buying. If you have the money (we didn't) go for the 50 inch. We are satisfied with and would recommend this tv.

                Comments about LG 42" Black Plasma 720P HDTV:

                Finally gave in and retired 1980s 20" Sony Trinitron! Opted for the 720p--yielded a great bargain. Watch sports, streaming Netflix (via blu-ray w wireless) and some regular programming. Live in an open floor-plan condo, so living room/viewing area is compact but I often watch from our open kitchen which is a ways away--picture is fantastic and the sound is much stronger and fuller than expected. A great buy.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Abt chat folks were very helpful answering pre-sale questions. Delivery was on time and painless. Love Abt.

                        We wanted a TV we could view from the side, with a high refresh rate, was good in bright light, and that would fit it in our 42" wide TV cabinet. This TV was the only TV on the market I could find to meet those criteria, and I am really glad I found it. I wish it was 1080p, but you can't really tell the difference unless you're 3 feet away. Its easy to set up, and I get internet TV by hooking it through HDMI to my internet enabled Blu-Ray. All in all, a great value.

                                Not sure why this is priced so low, because it's value far exceeds the amount I spent. The biggest drawback is that I can't leave the couch now! Great blacks and colors, very easy to set up, and auto-offs so no image burn. The only issue I have with it is the lack of audio-out options. The only sound system you can hook up is a optical-out system.
