Summary: Basically, I wish I hadn't bought it. The size is nice, the audio is decent, but the following issues spoil the overall appreciation: Picture ratio defects on a LOT of programs are all over the map- vertically crunched way below screen size, natural height but not expanded to make use of the screen, a very few programs with natural height filling the vertical space and letting the width fall where it may ( to me the only way you ever want to see it).
Summary: Getting the tv configured and set up was easy. However, after about 3 weeks of off and on use, it stopped working in the middle of using it. It just shut off and wouldn't power up. It's plugged into a UPS and there was no type of surge. LG put me in touch with a local technician who came out. As a precaution, I hired an electrician to come out and check my electric and he determined everything looked fine.
Summary: I recently bought this TV from J&R and had an horrible experience. On the first day everything was fine: the TV was working and the image quality is indeed really nice. However, one week after I installed it, the TV just went blank. I've contacted LG's support center and they told me that I couldn't get a replacement TV - although my purchase was just a week old - and I had to wait for a technician, which would come to my house only in the following week.
LG 42" LD450 TELEVISOR CON FALLOS EN EL SINTONIZADOR
9 July 2010
Summary: No aconsejo la compra de este televisor, ya que hace unos días compré uno en Redcoon y el televisor es de lo malo lo peor; lo que no sé si es un caso aislado o estos televisores de Redcoon vienen con fallos. El caso es que las imágenes son deficientes de muy mala calidad posiblemente al fallo en el sintonizador. Parece mentira que LG a estas alturas, fabrique estos televisores de tan mala calidad.
