Top Customer Reviews
I summarise my opinion as follows:
*First, an excellent service as usual from Amazon.
*I wanted an up-to-date model incorporating 37" screen, 100MH, LED, Freeview HD. Many that you see are `old' models; this one is May 2011. Always look for the date in Amazon's description.
* Taking it out the box, this is certainly the slimmest TV I have ever seen, and very smart. The solid base is easily attached by 6 small screws.
*I panicked that there was no scart socket but an adaptor is included. The sockets are upwards or sideways fitting so there is minimal affect on the slim profile. Panic no. 2 was when the screen brightness started to fade of its own accord as the outside light faded in the evening but I discovered this auto feature can be switched off (much better).
*The self-tuning started straightaway and soon brought in 80+ Freeview channels and 24 radio stations.
*The HD channels are fine but I really can't see a huge difference between this and SD. I gather that many so-called HD channels don't always broadcast in HD. The advantage varies slightly from channel to channel.
* Most importantly, I cannot fault the picture or sound quality. Awesome. I cannot see any indication of the ripple/blurring of outlines, especially in fast moving scenes, that was a problem with earlier models. I was also relieved that channel-changing is quite quick without that irritating 3-4 second wait.Read more ›
So what are the niggles?
When you link the tv with an LG home cinema kit, the tv does not remember the link every time and so you have to set the link between the tv and the home cinema every time you use the tv. They call it Simplink, but it doesn't really work.
More importantly, if you want to use the DLNA feature of the tv you may have a problem. Although I have a LG DLNA server on the same network as the tv, the tv often does not 'see' the DLNA server which is frustrating, and I can't work out why that is even even though I'm fairly good with the tech stuff. My workaround is to get the Home Cinema box to hook up to the DLNA server, which it does 100% of the time. The functionality is the same, but if you don't get another box with DLNA functionality and rely solely on the tv for your DLNA functionality you may be disappointed. This is the biggest drawback and the only feature of the tv that does not do what it should.
The picture is AWESOME, and that's the prime function. It is clear, sharp and with tweaking you can adjust the picture to your own tastes. Photos and videos look great on the tv. I have used the tv speakers occasionally and although they are not as good as a separate system they are nevertheless very acceptable.
I have a Humax freesat box hooked up to the tv and HD looks every bit as great as it should and I have noticed no motion blurring at all with any program or movie.
The built in BBC iPlayer app works very well indeed and I hope a later firmware release will include ITV's and C4's offerings.Read more ›
HD (1080i/p) pictures (from Freeview) look fantastic, as they should.
SD pictures (from Freeview) look reasonable within the constraints of the transmission bandwidth used for SD channels, though I think my Freeview PVR (Digital Stream DHR8203U Freeview+ HD, 320GB HDD, 3 x USB, Set-top box with CI Slot) does a better job of upscaling SD to 1080p so I use that when possible. This TV shows some very noticeable pixellation on edges of text on BBC News 24 that doesn't show up so much on the PVR. Still generally quite watchable though.
The "Picture Wizard" set-up tool is very helpful in calibrating the TV for better colour reproduction.
The screen has a nice matt finish, none of this horrible shiny mirror-finish stuff (are you listening, Samsung?), so you can see what's on TV rather than your room and don't get eyestrain.
The remote is mostly easy to use. One complaint, however, is that it's too easy to accidentally press the Guide button when trying to navigate down (I have large fingers), which interrupts use of the user interface.
This TV has no mains off switch, despite LG's claims to energy-efficiency. Disappointing in the 21st century.
As a TV then, it's mostly very good. However, the Smart TV features that I've tried currently leave something to be desired...
DLNA works for a short while but cuts off after about 20 minutes, even using the recommended Nero MediaHome Essentials 4 software that is bundled with the TV (running on Windows Vista). This is with a wired Ethernet connection, so it's not a WiFi issue.Read more ›

Good picture, picks up frequent updates.
But some of what I expected ie being able to see all on demand stuff was foiled by channels updating their end but not on LG side.
I like LG stuff anyway, and this nicely compliments the 55" jobber we have in the lounge.
