Rated 5 out of 5 by from okMays my wife and I have enjoyed this television since it was first hooked up. It stayed in the box for a couple of months until we moved in our new house (a year ago at the end of this month). The picture quality is amazing. We have HD satellite service and wouldn't have it any other way. I would only ask for another HDMI connection. We have a HTS connected with a bluray and I LOVE THE QUALITY! The picture is beautiful. Just the other day (for the first time) I connected a flashdrive and watche a slideshow presentation of our wedding and I felt like I was THERE all over again because the pictures were so beautiful. The speakers on the TV have an amazing sound quality also. I really get excited when I connect the Wii because thats beautiful also (the streamed videos are amazing also). Here is the shocker... there is even a VCR CONNECTED AND VIDEOS ON THAT ARE AS IF WE ARE WATCHING HD. I've been forced to keep all of my VHS tapes because the tv makes them beautiful. I COULD NOT BE MORE PLEASED!!! We will be purchasing another LG for the bedroom within the month. Proud to be a part of the LG family!
