What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible sound and can't add speakers Even using "Clearvoice" we can't understand what anybody's saying on the TV. Seems like sound is one of the two main functions of a TV, so this one fails 50%. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great picture After reading other reviews I was shocked to find almost everyone had the exact same problem at the same time, two years after purchase (!) the screen goes black suddenly, yet the sound was un affected. Sounds like a design fault built in to purpose. I guess that sounds crazy, but look at the reviews and judge for yourself. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money 2 years and 7 months old - picture goes - blank screen. From reading other reports, seems to be a common fault. I have other LG products in the house and all work well - that's why I bought their TV - never again will I buy LG products. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality at great price Picture is bright and clear, very sharp. I have an antenna for local stations that is run through my computer and Dish satellite service. So, I have to use 2 of the inputs and both work beautifully and are easy to switch between. I wanted a 42" screen and they were hard to find. LG had one and I will go to them first the next time I buy this or any electronics or appliances. Pricing is very competitive and reasonable.
