Saw this in a supermarket for £350. When placed amongst all the other TV's my wife and I were amazed at how much sharper the picture looked even compared with more expensive ones, it really stood out. Ordered on Monday evening using free super saver and took delivery of it on Wednesday morning!! We bought this to replace a Samsung 32 inch LCD TV. As soon as we had it set up we were so glad we bought this TV, the picture is much much better than the Samsung even in SD, and the sound is clearer and louder than our old TV, we have it on 14 and it's more than adequate.

Overall if you're looking for a quality TV that has a great picture and sound at an amazing price you can't go wrong with this. I highly recommend it.

Very pleased with this purchase, easy to set up and looks great. Quality is very good, but the only down side is that it only has one scart socket at the back which makes it difficult if you want to plug other things to it. Good value for money.

This TV is amazing it was everything I wanted and the pictures didn't do it justice as it was even better when it arrived. Picture quality is superb for everything (I mostly use it for gaming and its epic.) I highly recommend this television and at this price its an absolute steal. Overall BUY BUY BUY!

This TV has really vivid colours, it's very bright, and at 1080p it's *actual* HD (unlike those fake 720p things...). Most refreshing, though, is the software, which is exactly what I've been looking for in a TV for years. It's simple but functional with good optionality, and wonderfully fast. Speed, as we all know, is unusual for a TV, and this really is fast. The touch pad front panel is also really quick, and the TV turns on instantaneously, which is really nice to use. The build, when finished, is really solid, and looks lovely, nice and not shiny, but more like dulled brushed metal. The main criticisms you'd make of it are those that it doesn't have enough scart sockets, or enough of a variety of sound connections. The assembly instructions are also a little confusing for the stand, and the screws that came with it are different to those listed there. It's ridiculous to make anything of these criticisms though, as the former (connections) applies to almost all modern TV's and it isn't advertised as having these, while the latter (the instructions) is irrelevant since it's so obvious and easy to put together they aren't necessary. I really had to think just to come up with something to balance it.

We had several very similar price range TV's, as our main TV; the others have been faulty or RMA'd, for various reasons. This not only blows everything of a similar price out of the water, but for its simplicity, reliability and speed of software, as far as I'm concerned, I'd prefer it over a £1000+ smart TV.

The LG 42" is fantastic. Really. Buy it.

i was on a coin toss between this and its 32inch counterpart as i thought they were both very good for value for quality. in the end i went for the larger purely so i could have that feeling of wealth as you watch a portion of our wall turn into an entertainment system, i was far from disappointed.

you know it was a good choice when you make a large purchase like this and you don't regret it in the slightest

I bought this TV after reading multiple positive reviews and doing a lot of research on LCD vs LED vs Plasma....

When it arrived (in incredibly quick fashion, seeing as I opted for super saver delivery), it was easy to set up and a nice looking bit of kit.

However.... after owning a 32" Sony Bravia for the past 5 years, I had been expecting to see a massive improvement in the picture quality, and I was actually a little underwhelmed.

Yes it was Ok on the HD channels, but most of the TV I watch is SD, and I thought the picture quality was pretty average on SD. There was a lot of blurring around people on the screen, and watching football was pretty poor. The 5 year old Sony was actually giving a better quality picture.

Needless to say I have now sent this TV back (full refund from amazon was very quick) and have purchased a LG 42LS5600, which is incredible by comparison, is LED, 100hz and was only an extra £80. Given all the extra connections (and data connection for streaming) it was well worth it.

Final thought, as a very budget TV it is ok, but if you have a little extra cash, the LS5600 was much better.

Bought this TV in some trepidation as I was told the sound quality wasn't very good on LCDs..........absolutely not true! Everything about this TV is first class, and I can't fault it.

Never done a review on here before but having been researching a new budget 42 inch tv for months and relying on reviews such as this I thought it might actually be worth adding opinion to the mix.

I got the tv in local supermarket for £340, I know I could have got it a little cheaper but had decided this was the tv for me and was happy to lose 20-30 just to get it home ASAP.

First impression out of the box is that it was very easy to set up, I agree with previous reviewer though the stand is not secure enough for my tastes so I will screw down when I get a second. It is very unsteady / unsafe without this.

I have sky + hd and setup was piece of cake as was the ps3....no problems whatsoever.

The picture is absolutely beautiul, stunning....this is a tv which punches well above its weight in terms of picture quality, the hd channels made me feel instantly at ease with my purchase. One thing I was pleasantly surprised with was the quality of the sd channels, very crisp and clear - far superior to what I had imagined. You will not be disappointed.

My only bag would be a 3rd hdmi for connecting up the laptop would have been nice....a minor gripe though to be fair....

Super happy, super recommend, well done lg
