Summary: Love this tv. Have 3 of this model in various sizes us a 4 (slightly higher) model. Has more than enough HDMI and scary sockets and one usb which although it states service only can be u locked to allow hard drive/flash drive connection. Could have done with a second but for its age (bought these a few years ago now - 2009 I think) it's pretty good.
Excerpt: 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.

Excerpt: 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.
Summary: All round, a good television. This is my second LG, back to back, and I must say I did prefer the old picture quality, especially before all the energy saving gizmos came in and flooded the market and menus. The price has dropped a couple of hundred pounds since I purchased it, probably making this good value for money, so I think you couldn't really go far wrong.
The LG 42LH3000 is one of the best value for money televisions.

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
Summary: Certainly can't complain at the price - good connectivity, good picture quality, everything seems to work as you'd expect. Suffers from a bit of motion blur and lack of contrast, but no worse than any other lower-end panel. Be warned that the maximum resolution the unit will display over VGA is 720p - you won't be able to input a full 1080p signal over the VGA input!
