My requirement was a full HD 32" set with a built in HD decoder. Given those requirements at the time, the range of tv's available was very limited. The LG met all of my needs at a much lower cost than it's nearest rival. It has a great picture and I would recomment to anyone.
In conjunction with the LG adaptor it links seamlessly with my wireless router and enjoys the added extras of the installed software.
The only drawbacks I have found, it only has 1 USB port, 2 would have been much more convenient and it has no switch to turn the set off from the mains, it is forever on standby. However I would certainly give it 9 out of ten and recommend strongly. A Good buy.

Very good with only one problem
Generally a very good TV - am very pleased with this for the price.
The picture quality is excellent, but being an LCD set with normal back-lighting (i.e. not LED) dark scenes can look a little poor.
The sound is very good for a modern set. Most seem to assume you will add external surround decoder and speakers and so give awful sound, but this set is pretty good and I can even make out what people are saying in films!
The extra features are amazing for the price - Freeview HD works perfectly, even with the poor signal we have. BBC iPlayer is fantastic - much better than on a PC, and with dedicated pause, rewind/forward etc. on the remote it is almost as good as a PVR.
So why only 4 stars? Well, every set I have had for years has obeyed the signals from the Sky box that says what aspect ratio to display the picture in, and changed as required. With this one I need to manually select the right ratio (which can take 7 or 8 button presses)

Bought this LG TV for the bedroom, very good picture, and I was impressed with the sound quality. Very good list of features, HD Freeview, full 1080p TV, Picture quality is very good after I changed some of the colour, contrast and brightnest settings to suit.
Not the best looking surround but not to bad.
Great TV for the price.

Easy to set up, good picture and sound, HD Freeview well worth having. Appears to have ample connectivity but cannot comment on its usefulness as I don't use it!
Suround (black glossy plastic) is a little reflective and distracting - better if it were matt. Overall build looks a little flimsy compared with the Toshiba it replaced, but probably good enough.
