I really like this tv, it has a great picture and looks pretty stylish and sleek. If you don't have older devices than this tv is perfect. None of the newer model tvs of any brand really work, aspect ratio wize, with old devices.. I only gave it 4 stars because if you have older devices such as a playstation 2 the picture will not fill up the entire screen. The TV's aspect ratio and zoom features do not allow you to stretch the image after enlarging the aspect ratio or zoom as far as it can go. My mom has an LG, it's about a year older than this model, and it allows you to stretch the image of anything you are watching which is fantastic.I think the image is way better than my older tvs but would go for the image resizing anyway because there are even some shows on my roku that don't fill up the entire screen no matter what you tinker with. The 42LF5500 and other such models had better features on the remote that allowed for this. I'll have to finally upgrade my playstation 2 and hope that there is still some backwards compatible playstation 3's out there : / as the models I'm referring to are discontinued... : ( Though I believe models 50LS4000, 42CS570, and 47CS570 are still available for purchase and they seem to have the feature to stretch the image to the size you need...

This is a decent starter tv. The main strength is the picture quality is quite good for the price. The sound is decent; on other tv's I have had problems listening to the news, but it is generally clear. My main problem is there does not seem to be a "stretch to fit" function, so most of the time, the picture has a wide black band around it; it does not fill the screen. 4:3 broadcast sometimes fills the screen vertically, but not horizontally. Also, you have to assemble the stand and the tv does not swivel.

      Good TV

      from Wisconsin, USA

      Pros

      • Easy to use
      • Performance

      Cons

        Best Uses

          This TV has a nice picture and it works well with a computer using the HDMI. I will probably never use the joystick feature, and it only has two HDMI plugins, plus you need to use the computer screensaver to protect the screen, but this TV has worked well even with displaying documents. Many TVs do not display the letters in a document well when used with a computer, but this one does. The sound is good. This is a really good TV for the price (I got it at a really good price).

                              My husband and I took a chance on buying this TV that someone brought back to the store. We can't understand why they returned it. It has the greatest picture. It is like you are right in the same room with the people..Also love the sleep feature. We are looking to buy another LG in a larger size for our summer home..

                                          I was looking for an affordable TV with quality picture and solid sound. This was the one that popped out to me and I have not been disappointed. It had a quick easy setup and we discovered some nice extra features our TV's before didn't' have. The picture and sound are as good as I've seen without spending the big bucks.
