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 !

Great tv but but can't adjust the picture.

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.

      Great TV for our bedroom. This is the second LG tv I have bought in the last 2 years and have been very pleased with both. Outstanding picture, excellent sound and works great with the cheap cable remote that comes to you via the cable subscription. All in all very happy...

          I surprised my sister by ordering this tv to replace a console set from 1986! At first she was cool to the idea of new technology, but after seeing the picture and hearing the sound we tossed the console away! She now has a great viewing experiance every night of the week. Thanks LG!!!

              This is my first plasma TV and an upgrade from an older LCD that stopped working. Easy setup, still need to adjust some of the settings but the picture is great so far. Decent sound even without external speakers. Excellent overall value for what it is - highly recommend LG products!

                Best Uses

                  I bought this product to replace a much smaller TV that had died on me. Once I set it up and turned on the TV, I was hooked on the incredible picture. After making a few adjustments to the settings, I had the picture that suited my tastes exactly. Very easy to use and mounting it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. It is heavier than a comparable sized LCD/LED TV so you may want to get some help lifting it. I would recommend this TV to everyone!

It is a tremendous value and am so glad I made this purchase. Instead of just watching movies and games I feel like I'm right there. AWESOME.

                            I got this TV for my bedroom only because I had bought a larger one for my living room first, also an LG. The LG was really easy to set up and their support was easier to deal with then some of the other manufacturers.
