This model has a well known power supply problem. Many of these tv's stop working after a year or so (after the warranty has expired).

Great Picture, Poor Sound
Studied all of the 19inch TVs in store and choose this one as the picture quality seemed the best. Tried the sound in store of a few but frankly they all sounded thin and lacked volume. But we already have some powered speakers (i.e. computer speakers) that we can use so not too worried as long it has a headphone or phono socket.
Asked the salesman for a deal, and got a great price, better than their cheapest competitors on the web.
Installation was simple. Picture quality at home every bit as good as in store. Sound is poor but attached to some computer speakers its now really good. Menu config very simple, intuitive and comprehensive.

LG 19" TV
Easy to install and tune in. It is slow to switch on and slow to change channel so it is worth setting up favourites etc rather than trying to step through all the channels. EPG is good; fast and detailed so no problems with that.
Sound can be poor; if you read other online reviews. However this TV has some special VOICE modes that are designed to improve vocal reproduction. If this is ON (you can adjust up or down) then it makes the sound VERY high treble which does indeed make speech very clear but has the effect of making music sound very tinny; so great for Eastenders not so good for top of the pops! Change the settings to suit your viewing habits and you should find the sound OK; but it is never going to be HIFI quality.
Connections good; stand solid; quite diminutive and small frame to will fit in compact space; I have it in the kitchen.
Frame and stand are made of this ultra-trendy high gloss piano black which is a dust and finger print magnet; not great for the kitchen.
Picture is bright and good viewing angle.

LG 19" LCD TV
I found this tv extremely easy to tune in. The picture quality is good, as is the sound, I bought this for a bedroom, and find it's not too big. Overall a very goodpurchase and would reccomend this tv. The service at the store was excellent. I was even offered other products which is good salesmanship
