Summary: Bought the TV on March 14, 2011 for my parents so they can watch tv in their room. When we first got it, it was great. The quality was good, picture was good, and we all liked it. After two years of enjoyment, the TV turned to crap yesterday, when my niece saw SMOKE coming out of the back of the TV. Mind you, we didn't watch TV much, maybe a few hours a week, and some week we didn't even turn it on.
Summary: My husband must have been one of the last dinosaurs to approve the purchase of a new HDTV. The old cathode ray tube worked just fine! But once this was in the house, he couldn't stop exclaiming about the quality of the picture - both with regular programming, and with sports. He was converted, and converted well.
Excerpt: My husband have had one other HDTV in a 42in by a "No name" brand because it was cheaper at the time and it fit our budget! We immediately realized our mistake because the TV was horrible on so many levels! About a year later we found a fabulous deal on this TV for the same price (maybe cheaper) and my husband asked if we could buy it! I didn't use our old TV as much as he did, but even I was frustrated with it so I said to go for it.
Excerpt: LG's 42" 1080p 120Hz 42LD520 is a beautiful set, great colors, good viewing angles, a rotating base, and a low-profile power cord for easy wall mounting if you desire. The colors on the 520 are rich, and it's more than bright enough, I turned the brightness down to about 40% in my theatre room. The menu system is very responsive, and changing channels is also quick, a welcome change from my old toshiba that seemed to take ages to respond to remote commands.
Excerpt: Our old tube TV literally died on us on the day of my son's birthday party. We had been talking about a new TV but had done little research. So when we stared looking we were overwhelmed with the options. We are your basic middle income family so we wanted a TV that would give us a good picture, but not cost us more than a paycheck! This is the perfect TV for that. Some of the highlights: Cost. Was a great middle of the road priced TV for the size we wanted. Name brand.
Excerpt: We actually bought LG's 5300. We have waited awhile to jump on the flat panel tv bandwagon and are glad that we did. By waiting, the price came down a little, and the technology only gets better. We thought we could get by with the 37 inch size, but the 42 inch looked so much better in our entertainment space that we decided to go with it. We really like how clear the images are. We really like the brightness of the picture.
Excerpt: I bought this TV from the wholesale market made permanently reversed. The TV was cheaper than online. In general, I love television and I think the value proposition is excellent. My local BestBuy had this TV on the screen. 1. Be sure to use an HDMI cable to connect your TV to your receiver name. You must ensure that the HDMI cable is at least version 1.3.2.
