Summary: I purchased the LG 42LD450 at a chain store but want to caution Amazon customers. I was impressed with the specifications for the price and have had the set for almost two weeks. I tried everything I could think of to get some enjoyment out of it but am just plain disappointed. As another reviewer points out, you need to be directly in front of this set to appreciate the vibrant color and crisp picture.
Summary: I purchased this TV to replace my 3-year old Samsung Series 3 32" LCD TV in my master bedroom because I wanted a larger size TV now that prices have dropped a good bit (paid over $1,400 for my 32" a few years ago). I debated between this one and a 40" Samsung for the same price, both were 60hz models, which is fine since I'm only using this for my DVR.
