Excerpt: I bought the LG LH40 to be used as a monitor for my computer. I bought this particular one because it was on sale and, more importantly, because it offers 120 hz “tru motion” for some games which have the capability to run 75 hz.
Excerpt: We got our new LG-42 inch flat panel television a few weeks ago and I just cannot stop looking at it. it is truely a thing of beauty. the design is beautiful and the size is just perfect for our living room and also the picture is totally crisp and clear. I have not explored all this tv can do because we only just got it a few weeks ago but I am already impressed. I like that there are USB ports on the back so I can plug in my iPod if I wanted too.
Excerpt: For the price range of LG's LH40 series, the television is great. It does not have the best picture quality. I like the picture quality of my older Samsung LCD better, but I would pick the LG over the Samsung, because it has better features for the price point. A similarly outfitted Samsung would easily cost $400 more. I find the contrast ratio to be a bit low.
Excerpt: I have a samsung HDTV for which I paid a fortune. I need one for my bedroom and found this TV at a bargain price of $600 incl delivery and taxes. My expectations were quite low because it was so cheap. When I finally set it up, I was convinced that you get what you pay for because the PQ was washed out and poor in general. The reviews didnt make any sense though, because they were all glowing. I thought I got a lemon.
Excerpt: This is the first LG product I have purchased. I previously had a 27" television. This 42LH40 was very light and something anyone could put together themselves, unless its hanging on a wall like mine is, then you will probably still need some help because of the large overall size of the unit. It looks extremely clear watching blu-rays or High-Definition television.
Summary: beautiful picture.. great onboard sound! home theater system is not necessary to get great sound! cheap price but definitely not cheap quality! 120hz is a neat feature since i like to watch sports.
