4.0 out of 5 stars Great TV for the money - since the price drop 3 Jan 2014
By C. Shaw
Size Name:42 inch
No nonsense review of the LG 42LA740V TV.

My 2D picture rating: 4/5
The Good: Vibrant and clear enough to beat the pants off my 5 year old Sony LCD.
The Bad: For the more discerning viewer, the depth of contrast could be better.

My 3D picture rating: 5/5
The Good: Eye popping depth of field with no apparent ghosting or other noticeable artefacts. Becomes really convincing when viewed in the dark.
The Bad: Can't think of anything specific. Only the usual issues with 3D, like having to wear glasses and watching the right films to make it worth while.

My Sound rating: 3.5/5
The Good: Convincing across the range at low to mid volumes.
The Bad: Bass and Treble fall off at high volumes but mid-range still packs a punch. Good enough unless you want the best.

My Connectivity rating: 5/5
The Good: Plays ALL videos stored on my NAS served by Twonky. Including .mkv, .vob, .avi files, H.264 and MPEG2 encoded. Has built in apps for Lovefilm, Blinkbox, NowTV, and Netflix; plus others.
The Bad: Had some issues with the Blinkbox app just quitting for no reason. Happened a couple of times streaming one particular film, but have streamed others with no issues. Some slight pixelation when changing scenes when streamed from online providers but generally this is to be expected depending on encoding method used and available bandwidth from ISP. - All relatively minor

My Sports rating: 3.5/5
The Good: MCI 800Mhz
The Bad: Doesn't seem to make much difference to normal viewing. - Still some blurring and ghosting artefacts. I think normal (and even HD) streamed sports (e.g. football) are not encoded at high enough bit rate to take advantage of advances in motion technology.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not cheap, but worth the money! 21 July 2013
By Rob
Size Name:47 inch|Verified Purchase
We nearly went for the 42" version of this TV, but after measuring our old Panasonic 42" plasma, this 47" is exactly the same size because picture is very nearly the TV's full width and height. After a lot of looking about in shops, reading reviews and worrying about spending this much on a TV, we took the plunge.

The picture quality is nothing but excellent on HD channels and Blu Rays, very vivid with a real depth and texture to the picture. We have Sky, and sometimes the TV can struggle a bit with fast movement, but only on certain channels (it's always the same 2 or 3, so I'm guessing it's the broadcast quality). I watch a lot of motorbike racing, and it handles the fast movement fine.

Standard definition channels are also dealt with very well, with the picture quality much better than our old plasma.

3D is where things get even better. We've watched in 3D both on our home cinema system and on Sky 3D, and both are brilliant. The colours are so vivid, brilliant textures, and the sense of depth is great. There is no flicker or distortion at all. I was a bit sceptical about 3D, but since we've got this TV, I have a long list of films to watch that I've recorded from Sky 3D! And the bonus with this TV is that you get 4 sets of glasses, which are comfortable enough for you to forget you're wearing them.

The sound is also good for an LED TV. It's got decent bass which some seem to struggle with, and it does a good job with surround sound too.

The Smart content on the TV is very easy to access and use, with good content. There's a 3D world section included, and also games which include 3D ones also. We have our TV wired to our router, so speed is very good. I've not really tried it wireless though.

All in all, we are very pleased we took the plunge and bought this TV. The picture quality is better than we dared hope for, and 3D is excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant picture quality 8 Oct 2013
By Clever Spud TOP 500 REVIEWER
Size Name:42 inch|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Straight out of the box the LG 42LA740V looks stunning with a tiny black bezel and bright silver back and stand. The stand can be assembled in a matter of moments.

Set-up is pain free though I must have an unconventional load-out under my telly. I have a Digitalstream HD Freeview DVR, a PS3, an Xbox 360 and an HP HTPC - none of which can be configured to work with the LG Magic Remote - though this was no great loss as I don't really mind juggling remotes.

I skipped scanning for channels as my Freeview box handles all of that, but if you go through the process and decide to dedicate an external drive to the TV you can do some, basic, TV recording. It's a nice bonus but if you're buying this TV I would expect you'll have some other form of DVR already though the option is there if all your other recording streams are tied up.

There is an picture set-up wizard that you can go through to customize the screen and I'm very glad I did - I don't think I've ever seen a better picture than on this TV, and I have spent my share of time going around High Street showrooms. The picture is so lifelike, with a good source, that it actually took a little getting used to after what I'd become used to - and believe me, I take a lot of the blame for that because after going through the smart set-up process I'm convinced I've never correctly adjusted a TV picture in my life. Ignoring all the 3D functions entirely, it feels like you're looking through a window at times.

Coupled to this incredible picture quality is a wall of sound, with plenty of options to boot. The virtual surround sound is adequate to decent, again depending on the source but it can't be used in conjunction with the option to improve the clarity of voices.
