Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product Excellent TV which I got a very cheap price on. It was amazing value for money, great quality, vivid image etc. Pros: -Amazing value for money -Great quality, everything you'd want Cons: -Was unable to mount it to a universal wall bracket, which I'll now have to return to get a compatible one. Otherwise would be 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price, Great quality result of brand comparison I bought this TV last week. I conducted lot of research before buying(it is my nature to go through all products before buying anything); by visiting various websites on the internet, visiting electronic shops. I was comparing basically three brands LG, SONY and Samsung. Only these three brands have products with internet TV at an affordable price. From the research, I was getting a feeling LG seems to be the best option. I felt, it is value for money. My CRT TV, handy cam and digital camera are SONY make. I was wondering, whether I am making a right choice by selecting LG instead of SONY? To clear the confusion, I thought of conducting a series of tests on four brands before making the final selection. First test: visual inspection of picture quality, all the brands scored well. Second playing contents stored in external hard disk, there was a big surprise, on SONY TV, I was not able to play media content stored on external hard disk. All other brands passed the test. Third, using a USB hub. Since 42LV3730 has a single USB port, I thought of using USB hub. Only Philips passed this test. Unfortunately USB hub is not recognized on 42LV3730. Fourth test was to play videos from Youtube. I was bit skeptical as I had read some reviews as; you will not be able to play you tube videos, some flash player problems etc. etc. Youtube videos were played perfectly on this TV. Now, I feel that a HD video or bluray experience is best on an LED TV and not on any laptop or CRT TV. Considering the results of all these tests, I decided to purchase LG 42LV3730. Still, I had one last doubt, whether it will be easy to connect with the internet at my home and with other electronic gadgets? To my wonder, it was a cake walk for connecting to internet and accessing the gadgets. Now, I am quite happy that, I made the right purchase by selecting 42LV3730. Yes, I feel LG ( Life's Good).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good to watch..but so frustrating!!!! I bought this TV under the impression it could do everything I would expect from a smart TV. The extra dongle required for wifi access I can deal with, but it will not record onto HDD. So annoying! Please tell me I'm wrong

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little TV but has a few major problems that might affect you. Bought this TV a couple of months ago now and it is a truly great TV. Great picture and colour and plenty of different settings to change to suit. The network connection is what really makes this TV. You can connect to the internet for weather, email, different internet TV channels like Bigpond or Redbull TV. And connect to the pc and watch just about any movie you can find using the PLEX media server, it downloaded all the pictures and details for Top Gear episodes etc. Main problems No video output: Means you cannot record onto any device whatsoever. No VCR, DVD recorder or USB. This was a major problem for us. One USB port: You cannot use the motion controller and Wifi at the same time and if using wifi or motion controller you can't watch movies or files off the usb. Main reason I bought LG was for reliability I have a LG LCD from 2006 that has been on almost 24 hours a day 7 days a week and still works with no dead pixels. And none of my friends have ever had problems with their LG LCDs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 1 USB!!!!!!! Purchased the 42LV3730 LED LCD Smart TV... Why would LG only have one USB port when that means you can't use the wireless adapter and Magic Motion controller at the same time!!!! Smart TV...yeh right!!! Rang customer (don't) Care and the answer was "buy the LG models that have multiple USB ports" My answer "if I must buy another TV it would most definitely be another brand". Disappointed with what I originally thought was a great purchase. Why would LG not have another USB port to compliment their optional extras such as Magic Motion controller and their own branded wireless adapter. Misleading owners manual...take the time to produce specific manuals with details related to the specific model. The consumer should be aware that the wireless adapter cannot be used at the same time as the magic motion controller. And to use wireless with Smart TV, you must purchase only the LG Wireless adapter as any other are not compatible.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from "Wifi LAN Ready" is a misleading statement - 32LV3730 As advertised and on this web site, this TV is specified as Wifi LAN ready. I purchased this TV based on the ability to connect to my home Wifi system. I was told that I just need a Wifi Adapter of which I have many at home (netgear etc). I discover that no adpater will work unless I now buy the LG Wifi adapter as extra. 1) The CD manual states that an LG Wifi Adapter is supplied as part of this TV. This is incorrect. 2) The hardcopy manual for this TV on Page26, states wifi is not applicable (excluded) for this model. Hence "Wifi LAN ready" is a false and misleading statement and I now need to spend more time and money. Great when its now two weeks before xmas.
