Summary: While the picture quality is outstanding for a TV of this price, I bought this set specifically because LG TVs come with a headphone jack. Unfortunately, the headphone jack on this unit features an annoying static noise or distortion on certain sound frequencies, which is really noticeable when wearing over-the-ear or sound isolating headphones. I have done some web searches and this issue seems to be something noticed repeatedly about this TV by others.
Summary: I didn't get to try out all the other features as I didn't get past assembly. Did what the manual said on page 11 for the ld450 models. Product description says swivels +/- 20 degrees. This is not the first LG in the household btw, the other swivels just fine, that's why I did not give it an "I hate it" rating for product design and didnt rate for other criteria. Maybe it's just a fluke and got a lemon this time. Anyways returning to Amazon (first return for me).
Summary: I understand the law of averages.. Occasionally things go wrong and we buy a bad product. That's why the best of us use reputable vendors.. In this case, I purchased this LCD from Amazon.. and they will take it back happily.. and refund my money in a week. I got this LCD on Thursday.. and for the first hour or so, I was really liking it.. But things settled down.. My initial excitement at getting a new toy was wearing off.. Hmmmmmmmm..
Summary: I got this TV for 3 days so far and I noticed that there is a loud buzzing sound coming from the display, which is not part of the show I was watching at all. I love the other features that this TV has, but IT IS GOING BACK. The buzzing sound from the unit is too annoying for me.
Summary: Ordered the TV and it arrived quickly, great service from Amazon. Hooked it up to get over the air programming and to my PC via HDMI - exceptional, but not perfect, picture. Colors were good after calibrating, got 1:1 pixel mapping, and viewing angle on this was pretty good. Black levels were alright, not great but not bad enough to break the deal. But what bothered me the most was when I started watching movies and TV shows.
