Bad Screen...

Anonymous, Newegg
22 March 2010
  • Summary: Spent 20 minutes unpacking and setting the TV up and then turned it on to see 1/2 the screen showing odd colors, etc. BIG disappointment as I was hoping to have this for entertaining during the NCAA tournament. Despite Newegg's double-boxing and no noticeable damage, the LCD screen wasn't working.
  • Pros: Easy setup Looked nice (1/2 of the screen) Newegg double-boxed Eggcellent customer service Eggcellent value (if it worked)
  • Cons: Damaged (1/2 of screen showing colored bars)

Awesome HDTV!!!

William K., Newegg
13 March 2010
  • Summary: I have owned Samsung and Vizio HDTVs, This set blows them BOTH out of the water. Double boxed and VERY WELL PACKAGED by Newegg. Newegg is such a top notch outfit in my opinion.
  • Pros: Picture is Breathtaking. Colors are simply sublime. Best TV Sound of ANY Set I have encountered. The Menu / Controls are very well laid out and abundant. This set is a real "Looker" The Lucite Bezel is a very nice touch. Out of the box and up on the wall in less than 30 minutes. Vesa mounting scr...
  • Cons: Black level is not as poor as some state but not perfect either But considering the overall picture it is relatively minor, but still worth mentioning.

  • Summary: Credit to UPS. Package was on time "and" in perfect condition.
  • Pros: What an AMAZING tv. The best picture I have ever seen. HD looks terrific. Sound is pretty good. Big difference with the 120Hz. This is my first LG product and I will always go with LG from now on. Newegg rocks the house with everything about this tv, especially price.

  • Summary: total impulse buy. I wanted a new tv, did a couple hours research online, and bought it. It got here in 1 day, and free shipping. Excellent buy
  • Pros: Wow this tv is amazing. A tv this nice for under $1000 is a bargin. With the free shipping its a no brainer.
  • Cons: Tv is wobbly even on the stand with the anchor screw in place.

Gerald T., Newegg
2 March 2010
  • Pros: TV is very nice for the price
  • Cons: UPS SMASHED BOX TO HELL it was double boxed and still all of the foam around the tv was broken into bits, the tv survived without a scratch, and works very well. This is the last tv I will buy and have shipped.

Great Buy!

matthew W., Newegg

  • Summary: Amazing buy, if your in the market then this is the one if your on a budget and cant justify spending $2,000.00 on the latest LED-LCD HDTV's or you just dont want to pay over a grand for a Television, and even if you do have the money to blow, i would recommend looking at this product as it could...
  • Pros: 2.7ms response time on a 42 in screen with 120hz motionflow technology and full 1080p screen resolution and a 70,000:1 Dynamic contrast ratio, all for $650.00 - $900.00 depending on where you bought it and if i t was on sale or not, however reguardless of how much you pay for it at under $900.00 ...
  • Cons: No ethernet ports, limited HDMI ports. These arent really cons since ethernet is easily worked around with a network blu-ray player or your nex gen gaming console such as the PS3 or the xbox 360. Most people wont use more then one or two HDMI ports anyways so thats not much of a concern either.

Pure Awesomeness!

Ernest G., Newegg
23 February 2010
  • Summary: BUY IT & DON'T LOOK BACK. Best specs for the price. No panel lottery, so you can be sure that you are getting the same set as everyone else. Look around at your local sports bars, most of them will have LG's on the walls, for good reason, they rock!
  • Pros: I had previously owned a Samsung LN40B530 and got the short end of the stick in their "panel lottery" having recieved the lowest grade panel they put in that set. Motion blur like crazy, flashlighting in all the corners, pulsating backlight during motion, etc. I replaced it with the 42LH40 and it...
  • Cons: Only one audio output, optical digital. You'll have to get an optical to analog switcher/converter to make use of any analog speakers/reciever you were using on your old set. No headphone out, but thats not a big con for me. Just thought i'd mention it.

Great TV but UPS sucks

Jacob G., Newegg
18 February 2010
  • Summary: Get this TV you'll love it especially if you get it on sale+promo code. For the price this LCD beats mostly everything on the market only other good competitor would be the 46" Toshiba but they have a way slow responce time compaired to this LG, and if you wanna see this TV in action Best Buy prolly...
  • Pros: TV looks amazingly beautiful, Im soooo glad i finally made the jump to a large HD instead of playing 360 and ps3 on my computer monitor, the menu functions allow you to totally customize it to how you want, the stand is sturdy with no wobble and it rotates a decent amount, i really like the 120hz...
  • Cons: HA! i have no cons with the TV infact UPS proved to me that this TV can be dropped and still work perfectly. When i got the tv on the 16th i opened it to find crushed styrofoam on the right side top and when i hooked the tv up there was horrible backlight bleed on the right side so i took the bac...
