Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazed at how good quality for money a business I The technology in it is sharp, modern and extremely useful for entertainment purposes and a little beyond that. It is extremely light, it is extremely easy to set up and the functionalities are straightforward. Image-wise and audio-wise it is impressive and you only get poor quality if your freeview box is an old one. Apart from that I am amazed at how good quality for money a business I made with this TV set. The only minus I see is a lacking of on-demand apps for the most popular channels and a difficulty in understanding how the recording device works.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value I bought this TV a couple of weeks ago. I find the picture pretty good although sometimes there seems a lack of contrast depending on the background. The sound is good. It's handy that it has 3 HDMI as well as a scart. It displays photos from a hard drive or an SD card but it is a problem to rotate the photo. Best to rotate them on the computer first. The internet works well but it's a pain entering websites using the keyboard. The phone remote app works a bit better. Altogether pleased with the TV at the price paid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LG - LG 42LF580V Smart Full HD 42 Inch LED TV I bought this TV a month or so ago and it has been good so far. Good picture quality and sound is decent. Never had a Smart TV before, so enjoying these features, although using the internet on the TV could be more intuitive.
