Excerpt: This tv is amazing LG 42 LC7D 42" Flat screen TV in 1080p * An LCD TV designed to fit your life and your space. * From the compact 20" to the large 47", the LG LCD line offers HDTV clarity * High performance technology and convenience.
Summary: This unit is in some demand, with the belated discounts, and was lucky to find one (a 70 mile commute). I agree with online comments about the 1080p/720p issues; the incoming signal is more of a determining factor than the receiving unit in terms of image quality. Conclusion: a good 720p lcd-HD tv should do extremely well. Case in point; this one! Discovery HD broadcasts are particulary stunning, and other "nature" productions (e.g.
Summary: As a 720p HDTV, which you should clearly know you bought, it is a great television. You didn't buy 1080p, so don't expect it to be one. Also, complaining about your standard channels not looking nearly as good as your HD channels?...is that supposed to be a surprise to consumers? People that have reviewed this television or others TVs with those types of comments are completely oblivious about the technology and probably don't know how to make the best out of it anyways.
Summary: We originally bought a Philips TV at Best Buy, but after we got home and opened it up, found it didn't have the analog connection we needed to hook up the very fine stereo system we had(after the salesman and Best Buy told us it did). Best Buy took it right back and offered us this set in exchange even though it was priced slightly higher. Very easy to install and it had all the connections we needed. However, at first I wasn't too happy with the picture.
Summary: I got this tv for a screaming good deal (Under $800 - NEW). We do not even have cable in my house so I was weary of purchasing a HD TV. We went from getting 7 channels to 52 channels! I was amazed. Not only does it receive ch 2 and ch 5 (which never was possible before for us where we live), it receives 2 variations of channel 5! The picture quality is absolutely amazing so far. I haven't even had a chance to watch a Blu-Ray Disc yet!
Summary: Great tv! takes up little space, looks great and sounds great! The brightness is amazing and the HD is awesome! I use hdmi cables for an upconverter and hd cable box.The picture quality on regular channels is better than samsung,sharp,misubishi. Analog cable is clearer but no hd capability.It has a built in hd antenna but it quit workin after a few months.
Summary: ok. Lets say this: another impulsive buy. I had a bad day, next thing you know, I was gazing at tvs in best buy. I didn't know much at all about the differences 720, 1080, plasma, lcd. etc etc. So I learned as much as possible in say, a 4 hour time span and this was the tv I picked. I also loved the sale price(would NEVER buy one unless it was on sale, so I had the pick of the litter...of what was currently on sale at the time).
Summary: I am happy that most people who gave good reviews for this tv are happy, sadly I am not one of them. I bought this tv back in march 2008. two months later, a red vertical line showed up on the screen. I called Lg since of course it is under warranty and they sent a repairman to diagnos the problem. turns out the entire screen had to be replaced.
Summary: I couldn't believe how dark and muddy the picture was on this TV. I tried with the HDMI and component from a high-quality Sony system. HDMI certainly looked a lot better and I could scale the image to the native resolution of the TV and it still looked awful. Adjusting brightness and contrast just washed out the picture and made all the blacks gray.
