What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from home theater guess what, you don't need to go to the movie theaters to enjoy the show, this TV is equiped with a big screen and a 3D surround sound with bass kicking. you are able to watch anything from cartoons to action movies in any format signal input available which makes it easy to connect dozens of devices simultaneously.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great TV! I got this on a closeout at a great price but am so impressed! I didn't need all the bells and whistles of a top model. Just a great looking picture which it surely has. Ease of use is one of my top needs and though I didn't really do a test run before I bought it the 42LF11 delivers. This is in my man room hooked to HD cable, Xbox 360, HD-DVD, and Blu-Ray player. I have an older receiver with no HDMI inputs and only one optical input so really love that this unit has an optical output so I don't have to constantly switch my optical cable about for the various inputs :-) Very happy about that and was quite easy to do in the menus. I really have only one gripe audio from the TV is quite wimpy and don't quite know how they got Mark Levinson to lend his name to the audio on this unit-Though maybe I'm missing something but doubt it! Really overall, as long as you use something other than built in speakers, you just can hardly go wrong. Blacks are nearly as black as the bezel, love the option of changing power usage with little change in definition really, HD shines with great material (be aware older films, even on BR or HD-DVD and remastered are hindered by some obvious graininess and sometimes anapromorphic I.E not 16:9 settings! For newbs to HD) Anyway in closing I am sure you'll quite love it once you live with it a bit! Gaming is awesome! (me I love racing w/ FM3) Movies lovely, HD cable is only limited by the material broadcast! Love it! Can you tell?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent TV We purchased this LG TV in November and we have been very happy with the clarity of the picture as well as the sound. We would recommend this TV to anyone and would purchase another LG TV in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A deal you can't beat We just purchased this television a little over two weeks ago and this is my first flat panel tv. I am pretty impressed with the quality for the price that I paid for this tv!! It had the best, crisp picture out of all the tv's out in the showroom! The only gripe I have is the sound isn't awesome but after hooking this up to surround sound, there is no complaints!! Spectacular viewing experience that didn't break my bank!!! I shouldn't expect anything less from LG!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value For the price this TV can't be beat. The sound isn't great but that's to be expected from most flat panel TV's.
