Summary: my wife and I have enjoyed this television since it was first hooked up. It stayed in the box for a couple of months until we moved in our new house (a year ago at the end of this month). The picture quality is amazing. We have HD satellite service and wouldn't have it any other way.
Summary: Have owned the 42LD450 since May 2011, no problems setting up and has been flawless since. Only wished it had one more HDMI port. Picture quality is good and is not washed out when viewing from different angles. Very pleased with its good performance and great value.
Summary: I bought this TV for our bedroom, and it is exactly what I needed. It won't absolutely amaze you, but the picture quality is good and the audio is sufficient. The audio has a setting for enhanced dialogue which is helpful for watching from bed.
