    I bought this tv to replace a 40" Sony that has been reassigned to Wii/PS3 duty in my son's playroom.

    Unboxing, assembling the stand, locating the tv and putting in the connections took a matter of minutes.

    For the first day or so I was quite unhappy with the picture quality - the colours seemed washed out. I'm using a Home Theatre PC attached to the TV, so I ran the Windows Colour Calibration utility, which takes you step by step through adjusting brightness, contrast and colour tint, and the picture quality improved massively. Then I loaded a DVD with THX (the George Lucas picture & audio enhancement) and used the THX video adjustment process to go through a similar process to the one I did with the Windows colour calibration.

    With those 2 rounds of tweaking the picture on this LG TV is brilliant. As I'm running a PC through the TV I often use it as a monitor with a wireless keyboard - with the Sony TV I used to struggle to make out the text - with the LG it's very clear and easy on the eye.

    HD footage is remarkable on the screen. I think it's something to do with having the blacks properly configured. Images have a clarity and depth that at times feels like 3D.

    Edit - I originally said "My only real niggle with this TV is that the viewing angle is not as good as the old Sony. Colours start to wash out if you sit more than about 45 degrees either side of the centre line (90 degree total angle). They don't wash out massively at that level, but it's noticeable.".
    However - I discovered that playing with the settings gave a much clearer, brighter picture that stands up to much wider viewing angles.

    Had a bit of a problem to start with because dark scenes were just too dark, no use when trying to watch a moody thriller or spy movie!

    Eventually found a menu for all the detailed tweaks to light levels, contrast, etc and after setting it up it is the business. I read reviews before buying that said the sound was a bit weak but i haven't found it so.

    37-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p LED TV with Freeview

    I finally got rid of my ultra reliable JVC big box and took delivery of this LG. easy to set up, and a couple of hours refining the picture, as you are aware if you dont have HD from Sky or Freeview/Virgin etc a standard definition picture struggles to fill a HD screen and it amplifies all the deficiencies of the standard SD picture. I got an acceptable picture and I have to wait a week until I recieve my Sky HD box to truely get a great picture. The operating system is very easy to understand, and it virtually does all the work in setting up itself. The edge LED system is great, brightening up a picture which a normal LCD doesnt. I played a 720p movie from a SD card last night and the quality is superb and I expect not much more from the HD Sky set up next week. To sum up fantastic picture.

    Negative points. The sound from the tv is quite poor through the inboard speakers, real tinny and no guts, but I knew this would be the case and I use a 5.1 Sony surround to provide the sound.

    Amazon has put its price up £50 or so in the last few days and I got this for £404 which is a great deal, I feel the updated price is still great value for this quality product, the only reason I deducted a star is for the sound from the speakers, but in my opinion you should have a decent external sound system anyway if you are watching 1080p vision.

    I wasn't expecting to find a budget LED tv that was of reasonable picture/sound quality. After reading a Which? Report I saw this model, and while it didn't get as high a review score as some of the more expensive ones I'm perfectly happy with mine after also having purchased a small LG set to use as a computer monitor/tv for my room

    A fantastic tv for the money, doesn't disappoint. The only downside is the sound quality is a bit tinny with limited bass,, but if you're really serious about film etc you'd presumably buy a surround sound kit anyway. For general tv watching/ playing games it's got a brill picture and the 100Hz refresh rate keeps up well. We have an Xbox and PS3 hooked up to ours and looks great with both!

    I'm finally in the 21st century - I have an LED flatscreen TV! For the very last time, I had to lift my big old kaput TV set, which felt like the weight of a small elephant, and pay for it to be removed. Now I have more space and a lovely new light and thin TV with a fantastic quality picture and reasonably decent sound. I am very pleased indeed with this model - it's easy to assemble, easy to use and it has a good range of connecting sockets. There's a problem if you require more than the single scart socket, but as my DVD player uses HDMI cable I only need the one. People wanting top quality sound will probably need to add some external speakers, but I was pleasantly surprised by how the set sounds as it is. One other very welcome feature is the USB socket, which allows me to view, among other things, avi files. As a first time LED TV buyer I don't have a negative word to say about this. Excellent.
