    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.

                                I have had this TV for only about 5 weeks and the quality of the picture is outstanding. I am hoping for reliability for a number of years and if so - best buy ever!

                                        We bought this TV when we purchased our new home in July and have had excellent luck with it so far. We have an older 50" LG Plasma that moved to our basement. The only complaint I have about this 42" LED is it only has 2 HDMI inputs where as our 50" has three. Minor but kind of a nuisance. Picture quality is great and we're very pleased.
