What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy now! I am sports mad , I turned the new set onto the ashes test when Stuart Broad destroyed the Australians,with the superb picture I was there amongst the spectators.A truly wonderfully set, good value and so slim.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice big screen This is an uncomplicated large screen TV just as advertised. It took just minutes to set up to my Virgin Tivo box. Sound is adequate for me but I have also easily attached it to a soundbar using the optical link.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LG 42LB550V Great TV but weird legs! Had to buy a new stand as it wouldn't fit on the one I had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing TV!!!! This is my first flat screen tv ever, so i was expecting a big difference anyway, however i was blown away by this model. The picture is amazing, very clear and no problems with reflection, and the sound is fantastic. I was worried about the new flatter/thinner tv's having a poor quality sound, and thought i'd have to get a sound bar. Totaly unneccessary. I'm slightly deaf and i can't even have it more than halfway as it would be too loud, i usualy have it on about a quarter. Very easy to set up, no problems at all. The only issue that some people have mentioned is the legs for the tv. They are at each end and not in the centre, and as the tv is quite large, you will need a suitable sized tv unit. The legs are 36in apart, that measurement is taken from the outside edge of the legs, so your unit would need to be at the very least 38in wide to give you an inch either side, but ibviously that would be taking a risk. A 40in wide minimum unit would be better.Very stable though, easy to put the legs on (just a couple of screws), looks lovely. Thanks.
