Rated 3 out of 5 by from Is Good TV but... Had the TV for 3 years and had no issue from performance perspective and I'll consider it as good value of money. Unfortunately the screen after only 3 years use, decided to show a horizontal thin black line in the middle and few more flashing lines below. I thought that as it happened all of a sudden that could be fixed but both LG support and external technicians (without even to bother to check it) suggested to buy a new one as the cost to fix it will be significant high. As a result I'm planning to buy a new TV but from another company as I don't want to change it every 3 years and have poor support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent buy Having just moved to the UK , the 42LD450 has been worth the buy. Offering excellent features at a price that is affordable, this model has exceeded expectations. The picture quality is amazing, the instruction manual easy to use and operate the TV. LG has definitely made me a fan.
