Great picture but has its limitations
A great picture but the the sound quality was awful. LG came and picked it up to repair the horrible vibration and now it's OK. I certainly wouldn't rave about the sound, but at least 99% of the vibration has gone. Unfortunately LG have only seen fit to have BBC IPlayer installed as catchup. None of the other UK catchup stations, 4 OD, ITV Player etc are there. Hopefully they will arrive at some time in the future. I also had to move my router closer to the TV as anything but the strongest WiFi signal and Love Film etc simply pixelated and stalled. Now that I have BT Vision for all the catchup channels that aren't there, and I have fixed my router problems, I can get everything, but its not an ideal solution. With regard to the on-board Internet, like a lot of Smart TV interfaces, navigation is a real pain. A Smart wifi keypad would be much better than up,down, left, right - select etc with the remote, for each character. I like the fact that the 42" screen, being framed by very little plastic, means that its only about an inch taller and wider than my previous TV that had a 37" screen. Visually it takes up a similar amount of space in the room. Generally it's fine, but as an ex teacher I feel that for a SMART TV report I am bound to write, "Could do better with more effort and concentration to detail"

Very good purchase
Bought it on Christmas from TESCO. Very good customer service and excellent TV. Colours are vibrant and picture looks life like. Moreover very easy to set up and give full marks to TESCO customer services for recommending and assisting me to buy this product.
Must recommended for all.

A terrific product, just what we were looking for, easy to use, great features.
We simply took out the old TV, used the bits and pieces supplied with this set, turned it on, and off we went. I haven't opened the instruction manual, it was that simple.
The ratio button is used to adjust picture size which varies depending upon the input source. The input source button is used to switch between skybox, hard drive, wii, dvd player or wifi dongle. SImple.
Picture and sound quality is excellent, I can't fault it.
My only gripe (hence four and not five stars) was having to buy the LG wifi dongle separately. Plug it in in the wifi dongle slot, select wifi dongle mode and scroll though the list. Internet, iplayer, youtube etc.etc no problem.
We are really really pleased with our new toy.
