Excerpt: This TV is a great buy. It has great picture quality. I love that it connects to Netflix directly, which makes it very convenient to catch up on a TV series or watch movies. I also like that I can turn the 120Hz refresh rate on and off and have a "Real Cinema" function, which softens the picture movement. That way, I can watch the high refresh rate with sports, but for the rest, I like to use Real Cinema. The sound is also pretty good on the TV.
Excerpt: Bought this TV in late 2009 and its been great TV experience ever since. This TV looks great in the TV space, very nice design, very sleek and modern. The picture is truly great, we have had no issues. Watching movies or TV is amazing, never want to go back to plasma. Added bonus of having Youtube and netflicks is a great bonus. We can stream movies from netflicks with the click of a button. Easy to use and great reaction time. Youtube fuction is only ok.
Summary: My LG42lp1d was purchased in 2005 and I had an extended warranty. The power box went in Jan 2010 and the TV has been discontinued. LG have agreed to replace it with this model the 42LH50YD which has greater tech across the board after I declined their offer of the 42LH20D which did not have intelligent sensor etc.
Summary: After reading this review I was pleasantly suprised at how good the TV is! The menus and customizations are easy to use. 200Hz works great for sport NBL, NFL, Golf, cricket, motor sport. I am more than happy after upgrading from a 68cm crt tv!
