Summary: The actual picture quality of the tv is great but it broke twice since I bought it(January). Screen went black when I was playing on the xbox and I got it back 2 weeks later after it was repaired for it to only break again a week and a half after that. Amazon gave me a refund though.
Summary: I chose the tv due to an insurance claim, the screen quality for an entry level tv is excellent (even better when watching HD Chanel's or DVD's). The sound quality is also good, however you need to turn it up to get the full range of quality. The amazon delivery service is good, but doesn't offer specific confirmed delivery times (not good when you have a busy life). On the whole a good tv and an excellent service offered by Amazon.
Summary: I chose this set for its size, physical appearance and that it had a 10watts per Channel audio output. All very good except for the audio output which would be ok if you liked it to sound as if it was trapped in a biscuit tin. The audio controls made very little difference to the tone. I have wired in some external speakers to remedy this problem. The picture quality is excellent.
LG 42LN540V: Does a respectable job, one or two niggles.
2 weeks ago
Summary: This LG TV has been my companion for the past few months, since moving in with my new housemate. It has done everything we have asked it to with aplomb, with just a few niggles which I'll come onto later. On the plus side, it is well worth it's asking price, it looks excellent, the stand/mount it comes with is perfectly suitable, and the price isn't too steep.
Summary: i love this tv easy to set up and stunning picture especially on the HD channels or with a blu-ray player.you have to be a few metres away to appriciate it dont sit to close,the HD really is better so if you have hd channels use them.has freeview built in and with only a loft ariel i picked up everything in stunning quality as good as virin or sky pictures with an ariel in the loft.worth buying at this price.
Summary: We have a pre-schooler and twin toddlers, all of whom loved to press the on/off switch and various other buttons on our old tv in the playroom, but the buttons being on the edge of the rear panel make this an ideal tv for us. You can easily find them as an adult and ingeniously, the screen shows you which button you are pressing on the screen, so you don't break your neck trying to work it out.
Summary: The picture quality of this tv is brilliant. Clean colours, crisp and pure. I love the HD. Couple of minor points, it asked for an internet cable to set up .. I skipped this part and everything to date seems ok. The tv can probably do a lot more if we were to connect it but .... Also, it only goes onto standby - I would like something that completely switches off. The big downside - the sound! We had to go out and get a soundbar .. No two ways about it.
Summary: So I was initially looking at smart TV's but this caught my attention. After plugging in a small computer and using a wireless keyboard I now have a full entertainment center. Great picture and great sound,m would recommend it.
Summary: This is a great TV, It not only looks good but performs superbly. I didn't go down the line of buying a Smart TV, as it really wasn't for us, so this seemed the best 42 in that was on offer. We have kept the main settings as normal, as it didn't need any changes as some people say. Ie, change the sound settings and picture ...we like what we see and hear as it is. Well worth the money , and this is the second LG TV i have owned...
