    8.0/10

    4 August 2012

    I purchased this television from a local store. It was the last one they had and I was offered $200 off if I took it.
    IT was very close to the size I was looking for and I had the money on me .
    This television has been rock solid since it was purchased.
    My friends and family love the USB port. They bring movies over on thumb-drives or music and the LG 42SL recognizes the device.
    The one time I called service on the TV it was done within 3 days.
    several of my friends have even stated that if I get a new tv they will buy this one.
