Summary: The TV itself was great and I enjoyed it while it lasted. Then just recently it quit working entirely -- just an endlessly blinking red status light. After doing some research it appears this is not an entirely uncommon problem to have happen. While I was happy with the set before I really can't rate this very high because I expected more than three years out of it for my money. Every other piece of electronics in my home still works just fine.
Summary: First of all the stand was not stable, so i called (LG) and told them of my problem. They promised to send me a new stand and they never did...SECOND is that the TV is not being supported for Internet updates and we are stuck with the few Apps that came with the TV...Again i called and they said that THERE WILL BE NO SUPPORT FOR THIS MODEL......So my SMART TV turned out to be a DUMB TV....I also purchased the extened warranty..
Excerpt: This is my very first LG TV, its a 42 inch LCD-LED backlit HDTV. I've never had an LG tv before but I will definatly buy this brand again in the future. The picture we get on this tv is phanomanal. We love all the other different electronic that we can hook up to this TV, we can plug our computers into it our tablet into it as well as hooking up other componets.
Excerpt: I don't know a ton about televisions but I do watch quite a bit of TV so as far as our new LG 42 Class LCD HDTV I am very pleased. The pic is great, sound from the actual TV is a little lacking but hooked up to stereo it's great. Overall I'm very happy with the quality for the price.
Excerpt: We purchased the LG 42" LCD TV to replace our 26" Sharp LCD TV. While our Sharp as been great to us, we were really wanting a larger television for our living room. Unfortunately many of the TV prices are a bit over our buget. We looked up TV reviews constantly and found that some had complaints about things I didn't even understand! We finally found this on, I know LG has good products and found decent reviews of this TV so we thought it couldn't hurt.
Excerpt: I was really skeptic when deciding to go buy a new LCD tv. So much technology that I dont know anything about. Well I was plesently surprised when we got this baby home. The picture is amazing, the sound is great. The HAd channels are amazing, but you dont have to be watching an HD channel to get great picture. It has so many hookup for hooking up the computer, and stereo, and everything else to it. It even has this auto volume that is GREAT.
Excerpt: We bought this TV as our first LCD HD Tv. It is a great tv. I can't believe the difference! Even with our regular sattelite tv it looked great! HD tv is phenomenal! I highly recommend this TV to anyone looking for great quality, picture, and price. There are so many options you can choose from to set up your tv picture and it walks you through it! If you have someone that likes to leave the tv on- you can program it to shut off every day at a pre-set time!
Excerpt: We bought this TV and have not been disappointed. The picutre is great and very sharp. It is easy to use and very easy to change the settings. It also has lots of points for hook ups. We have a Wii, Home Theater, Satelite Box, and a DVD/VCR combo hooked up and still have room for more. The sound is good for a TV. I recommend adding home theater but that is personal preferrence.
Excerpt: I was able to get a display model of this television and that allowed me to get a great tv at a low price. This tv has a very clear picture and a large screen. I've heard of some tv's that without hd channels and blu-ray players etc do not have a crisp clear picture, My tv provides clear picture even when not on a hd channel. I also have a blu-ray player that when the 2 are combined has an absolutely clear picture. This definately was a great buy.
My friends and I love watching football on my LG 42LD.

Excerpt: I recently got this new TV, which was a huge upgrade from my old one. Since I bought it my friends want to come over for every sporting event and watch the games in High Definition. But I have to say I like having everyone come to my house so I don't have to leave. But I can't say enough about this TV. Great picture, great value. I have no complaints whatsoever. It is my favorite TV I have ever owned, as well as my favorite electronic I have ever owned.
