My first thought was product for value. I soon realized that it wasn't going to be easy, until I passed the LB 5600. I had been looking for a 42 that had Great Color and Great Contrast. Voile! I found it. The LB 5600 was clear, the picture was tack sharp, great profile, perfect fit for the space I had for it. Even more, the sound, was the final decision. I asked the salesman for permission to crank it up. That did it. My search was over. The LB 5600 is the creme de la creme for me. After I got it home , I read the instructions and I was set. When you see it you'll know it. I am totally convinced that this is a Great product for the money. You will Love it. LG

I purchased the 42" screen LG August of 2014. The TV was not installed until mid October because the room were it was to be used was under construction. The past several weeks the TV turned off by it self and at times the picture would be distorted. Today it turned of and will not go back on. Since it has a warranty of 1 year from purchase I am out a TV. I have had TV's for well over 20 years with no problems. Only to replace them because of style and convenience. Now I am not sure if I will purchase another LG product since my experience with this TV has been unsatisfactory.

              Bought a couple of months ago. I wanted a simple 1080 TV for our "Florida Room" where the TV is somewhat close to our recliners. The 42" TV is perfect for our needs. We have Amazon Fire hooked up and watch good movies, etc. enjoying a fantastic picture.

              TV has worked well, and fits perfectly in our armoir in our bedroom. Good picture, but as with many flat screens, the sound isn't that good. Still fine for late in the evening after the kids are in bed.

              I work hard for my money and I can be affording a new TV every two years. this is my second LG tv that I bought and again it stops working. the first one I get but two in a row, I know nothing last but I just figure a few more years before having to replace it. I'm just so desapointed on LG. I wish they would give their tv a longer worrantee

              Comments about LG 42" Black LED 1080P HDTV:

              The tv is great except for one thing, the channel info function. on very tv I've had or demo'd in the last ten years exploit this robust text display function. LG has chosen to ignore it. It's a small thing, perhaps, but the data is embedded in the digital tv channel to display past and upcoming program titles and synopses of program content.This tv is only capable of showing the title the current program. No listing info, no future or past prgraom titles, no extended data. Phooey. Is there a.software update for this to that enables this function?

                  I brought this TV in April of 2016, I already have a 22 LG TV and it works and looks great, so we wanted another LG, this one to me looks great, but my girlfriends says its not as crisp as the smaller one, but that it is starting to look better as we use it so maybe it just needed to adjust its self, it looks great on and off. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great TV at a reasonable price.

                          I have had this TV for a while and it is on constantly. It has a very good picture, color is awesome and just out does my 65 inch in the living room. Soon it will be on the wall where we can lay back and watch. No other TV on the market has the picture of this one. I have taken it to the living room when my 65 had to be replaced, (not LG), and will replace it with an LG when the warranty runs out.
