Summary: I've had this TV for over a year. Money can't buy happiness, but rarely has it come this close for relatively little. Other reviewers point out the inconvenience with selecting inputs. That is correct; I expect new designs to do better. However, unless you are constantly jumping from one input to another, that is a minor issue. HD cable, my (cheap) Sony DVD player, and input from my computer all look fantastic.
Summary: I bought this TV from another supplier nearly a year ago. It was on sale for $1,099 with free shipping to front door! When input from PS3 or computer, the picture is absolutely amazing. I invited my brother over to show him how awesome it looks to play high definition computer games on a 42" 1080P TV and he was blown away!
Summary: I order the TV online and it came home to daddy in good condition. My wife set it up, because I was out of town. When I got home I was not impresses with the picture quality, then I realized she hook up the coax cables and not the HTMI connections. Well I hooked up the HTMI and WOW what a difference. I went from depressed to very pleased in a simple hook up.
Summary: I'd have my 42" tv for about 3 months now and was originally nervous when purchased because of issues others have faced. I've had none thus far. Picture quality is excellent. It is a very versatile set equipped with 3 hdmi ports, 2 component ports, and 2 av ports as well as a computer hook up for video and sound too. I don't own a surround sound system/receiver and find this to be all I need with some alterations to the custom sound settings.
Summary: I have had my LG for about a month now and couldn't be more satisfied. It even makes HD Cox Cable look good! Having three HDMI imputs is awesome. Picture quality is excellent. Remote is easy to use.
Summary: This television is fantastic!! The picture is sharp, it has plenty of input ports, and the price is not too expensive. Then, I added HD to my satellite provider, and it took a great picture and make it phenomenal! I would highly recommend this item to anyone looking for a HDTV.
Summary: After spending some time in research what to buy, Finally i decided to buy this LG. Initially, I was focusing to buy Toshiba Regza or Sharp Aquas. But looking picture quality and comparing with Sharp and toshiba, i got so impressed. Also price was very reasonable.
Summary: I have had my LG 42LB5D for one month, and so far I love it. The picture and sound are both excellent. I have seen some complaints from other reviewers about inconvenience with selecting inputs (you have to scroll through all available inputs with the remote), but it takes about 5 seconds and I don't consider it a problem. The TV arrived on time (I bought from Amazon and it was shipped from TigerDirect) and was easy to set up.
Summary: I've owned this TV for 2 months now and it is great! The picture is awesome, especially when you can utilize its full-HD capabilities. It doesn't necessarily have all of the fancy features that other TV's have like picture-in-picture, cableCard, or lots of menu options, but when put to the test, this TV will impress!
