What People Are Saying

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy on the eye This TV is not only great to look at but its does what it says on the box. I have had the TV for a while now and have no regrets. Both vision and sound are great. 27 January 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by half a screen the lg 42" is a good television but you would think they would last more than 2.5 years.this tv has great picture quality along with the 2 scart sockets,2hdmi slots along with others features.the newer models only have 1 scart socket .I would like another LG42" but i dont want to because im afraid that the same thing will happen.The one i have after only 2.5 years shows only half a screenand that is the right half,the other half (left) is black, 15 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by this is a brilliant t.v. good picture and sound. thought 42 inch would be too big but soon got used to it. only had it 2 weeks but haven't found any faults with it so far. 21 July 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good buy After researching several makes I decided on this LG. Very easy to setup, sound very good and loud, picture great. The tv swivel on its base which a useful thing to have if you are sitting at the side. Good looking tv and nice remote. 19 January 2010
