Summary: WOW I paid just over £300 for this TV as it was in the Argos ex display sale. People - you must ask instore for when the next one is if you want a great deal on ex display tvs. They happen every quarter year apparently. Being as this TV has been playing all day everyday for the whole of the stores opening hours I plus I have had it since the end of January 2010(before writing this I decided to give it a few months before I wrote on here about it.
Pros: built in freeview, expensive looking, good quality picture
Summary: As a technophobe to me a telly is a telly is a telly. However to my boyfriend the bigger the better and when we moved instead of buying the oh so important things (duvet, sheets, towels...) he went out and purchased the biggest telly I have ever seen ... so big it didn't fit in the car! Bringing it back home, it was heavy (not especially useful I know but be careful when carrying it in) and setting it up it does dominate the room somewhat!
Summary: First the tech spec for the TV: - HD Ready 1080p (1920 x 1080) Resolution - Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 80,000:1 and Brightness of 500cd/m2 - Clear Voice technology and Invisible Speakers tuned by Mr. Mark Levinson for amazing sound quality - Ample connectivity including 3 x HDMI, 2 x Scart, PC Input, Composite and Headphone & digi Freeview built in -Energy Saving Recommended by the Energy Saving Trust I bought my LG 6 months ago and I am more than happy with the results.
Pros: cost, features, input options
Cons: Slightly annoying that both scart leads only via back of TV
Summary: First of all let me come to the facts, this is an excellent TV for it's price range and even better than others more expensive in some cases. It has a sharp picture with many options including energy save and about 4 screen settings to add into the mix. The sound quality is good although not the best and the picture quality is sound in most cases. We have not had a chance to view in HD as of yet so I can not comment on that.
Pros: Picture quality in most cases, stylish, slimline and features
Cons: If you dont get the sound set up right its tinny / no hd freeview
Summary: I have just purchased this television, and i am very happy with my choice. I thought that having such a large screen would mean that some programs may be out of focus or pixels would be seen, but no, it's just perfect. It looks fantastic with my glass stand and stands proudly in the corner of my room. It has an easy to use television remote control, and the LG guide on freeview is simple and quick to flick through certain channels.
Summary: LG have developed a reputation in recent years for delivering relatively good quality at surprisingly low prices. The 42LH3000 is proof of just how deserving a reputation this is. The LH3000 is available in a range of sizes, all of which are among the best TVs in their price range. I paid £500 for this set at the start of the year and have had no disappointments so far. It has a sleek, tidy front with a steady stand.
Pros: Great picture quality, incredible sound quality for a flatscreen TV, amazing price.
Cons: Black levels could be better, not the best set for gaming.
Excerpt: I didn't have amazing expectations when ordering this product online, having never seen it before in my life. All I knew is that I needed a preferably HD ready, large, flat screen on a budget. When it arrived I managed to set it up and have it working within ten minutes. The instructions were easy to follow, and I had no problems setting the television up on the stand that it comes with.
Pros: Amazing picture quality, low price, good sound quality
LG 42LH3000: A brilliant buy for anyone who wants a big screen!
28 March 2010
Summary: I purchased this Tv a little over 6 months ago and I have to say I am more than happy with my purchase. Apart from the fact the screen is huge, the quality of the picture is great but if you are willing to spend more money then you can get better. I paid £450 for my TV and i consider it a bargain for the things you get. The Tv is HD ready so that was doodle to set up with my cable provider.
Summary: LG have recently been gathering pace in the tv market and after several lacklustre reviews, the brand really has improved it's quality. It is somewhat surprising that they ever struggled particularly in light of the fact that they are one of the biggest selling tv manufacturers. So here we are onto this offering from LG which certainly promises good things, it has a nice neat design, plenty of inputs for cables boxes, ps3/xbox etc.
Pros: Vibrant crisp colours, good contrast, sound quality is admirable
