I've had this TV for about 3 years now and its still as good as the day I got it. The picture on it is great, its full 1080HD with a resolution of 1920x1080 which is great. My girlfriend and I use this guy as our main TV, we watch films, tv and I use it with my Xbox 360 giving me a perfect picture. However, the only reason I have not given it 5 stars is the audio, whilst the picture is great (I might have already said that) the speakers are not so good. They do a job but to be honest they are a little weedy and quite tiny i.e. they pack no punch and will leave you underwhelmed, which you would probably expect from 2x5W speakers. If you have a decent sound system its not a problem, I have a Logic3 Valve sound system so I don't use the TV's speakers. In short if you want a TV just for the visual you've found your boy, if you want something that will have your inner ear ringing you should probably find something else.

My wife and I purchased a 22" LG M-62D LCD TV to replace an aging 14" CRT TV set in our kitchen. Possibly, because it was "only for the kitchen" we didn't put sufficient effort into our purchasing decision and were swayed by price too much. Consequently, we chose the LG over a 22" Sony that was £60.00 more, although offering a built-in DVD player and 5-year guarantee, not to mention, possibly, a more prestigeous name. Any other day it would have been what is commonly known as a "no-brainer" but, somehow, the "only for the kitchen" message got in the way of common sense. Besides it appeared to have great picture quality, if the specially-crafted HD images being shown in the store were anything to go by. I have to confess we didn't think to listen to any of the sets we looked at.
So, what have we ended up with? Well, a lightweight but good looking TV set that enhances the corner of the kitchen where it resides. And that is all fine and dandy unless it's switched on. Then things go down hill. Picture quality is fair; albeit, when compared with our 32" Panasonic Viera set in the lounge. However, picture brightness at times appears too strong, though at other times okay. Skin tones, though, are never quite right. I appreciate one cannot be certain if someone's skin colour is being faithfully reproduced, but I think there's an acceptable range within which the average viewer is happy. The LG goes outside that range too often, in my estimation, which means I end up watching the picture and not the programme.
But - and it's a big "but" - the set is let down most by its wretched sound quality. We've upped the base, toned down the treble and tinkered with just about every other availble sound adjustment but to no avail. The sound is just plain "tinny.Read more ›
