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.

      I bought this in the summer of 2014 and it's almost 14 months old and I have experienced no problem with this TV, especially when I've traveled back forth from my university to my home. I love the picture and the way it displays HD. It was a good TV for a great price!
