Summary: Had this TV for lil over 2yrs now and had no problems ,excellent picture quality and sound which is consistent with most LG brands. I would have given it 5 stars if it was really " wifi ready " without having to buy this LG wifi adapter . Next time LG should be upfront and say that was the case . Overall it is an excellent TV .
Summary: The LG 42LE5400 42" 1080p HDTV LED LCD Television is decent in comparision to its price. The picture quality is good in HD, but cable or basic connections are just ok. The remote and features are good but my model has no audio out ports which I find odd, if you consider useing a sound system make sure your unit has the proper ports but also consider that the tv has a decent sound system on its own.
Summary: After buying and returning several other brands of led TVs, this was what we went with. The picture quality is superb. The sound quality is better than most. The functionality is great. There are a couple very minor issues with internet connectivity rarely. When this happens I can easily figure out the problem and resolve it myself. My wife and daughter love the TV as well.
Summary: Overall, a very fine value. Like most edge lit LED tv's, it exhibits some uneven backlighting (the corner flashlight effect). It's only noticable in the darkest of scenes though. Take some time to calibrate it & you'll hardly notice it. The presets are ok for quick setup, but you'll be amazed at what a difference it makes after you calibrate it. I've had this set for almost a year now & it's still looking great.
Summary: After using this tv for over a year, I can honestly say that I love it. The combination of great picture quality, Netcast features, and ease of use make for a fantastic experience. I connected the tv with a basic antennae for OTA signal and an ethernet cable for Netcast services. Both work really well and are extremely easy to use. My wife and I especially enjoyed watching the NCAA basketball tournament this last March on the 42" display.
Summary: The picture quality is good but I am disappointed with some missing features. There is no freeze picture feature. There is no present time display and the display when changing channels is too large and only states channel number with audio (sap). Also for some reason the LG logo on the bottom center of the TV remains lighted causing a distraction. The TV is tilted 1/4 inch on the stand and I cannot correct the tilt.
Summary: Had for almost a week and it has been pretty awesome. The picture is great, the plethora of inputs is nice, but the sound quality of the on board speakers is awful. If you buy this TV plan on getting some sort of surround or aftermarket sound system. After 2 days hearing this thing, I purchased a sound system, the sound just plain sucks. But hey, you are buying a 42inch led tv, of course you are going to buy a sound system.
Summary: I love this TV. Bought it for our bedroom along with the wireless media kit. It is perfect. The tv was very easy to set up, the picture is crystal clean and its just a very clean looking set. The power consumption economy mode is pretty cool, dims when the lights go down which is perfect for the bedroom then brightens up when the lights come on. As far as the TV itself I have not found any problems. I do have a couple minor issues with features.
