Something that's not mentioned in the description, reviews or even the LG website - you can get youtube, weather, iPlayer and a number of other online apps after a quick update - all of which work really well. There's even a few games on the TV itself too!
Certainly compared to the Toshiba 37RV753 and Samsung LE37C580 which are about the same price as the LG, its a no brainer - the LG is far superior. TV itself looks good, remote is a good size and functional, the swivel stand works nicely and its got all the connections you'll ever need. Definitely recommended!
it arrived the next day with a AmazonBasics 2M Dual-Shielded High Speed HDMI Cable [Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging] and LG BD550 Blu-Ray Player.
this TV basically sets itself up and i did not have to use the manual. it is that easy! i fitted the stand the same way as C.ASHTON and it goes together really easy.
i have also set it up for 'netcast'. again, all i had to do was plug my LAN cable in to the TV and then in to my Router and it sorted itself out as well as a software update.
I live in West Dorset and I receive BBC HD, BBC1 HD, ITV1 HD and Channel 4 HD with no problem. HD channels are amazing as well as DVD and Blu-Rays.
very, very happy with this TV and the difference between it and my old 28" CRT is incredible.
The 37LG490 is a beautiful TV. Its border is gloss-black, as is the stand it comes with. The power indicator shines blue when on, and red when on standby (the only way to switch the TV off is to unplug it).
The manual that comes with the TV is a universal manual that is included with many of LG's TVs, so there's plenty in there that is totally irrelevant to this TV. And, like all LG manuals in my experience, the manual lacks information. However, I managed to set my TV up in about 30-40 minutes. I used the stand that came with it, rather than purchasing a wallmount. The TV was an absolute sod to slot into the stand- we were supposed to lift the TV off of the bed and lower it blindly onto the slot protruding from the stand. After several failed attempts at slotting the TV into place (I used mirrors and everything!) we decided to go against the instructions and bring the stand TO THE TV, slotting the stand into the TV (which was lying on the bed) and not the other way around.
The Freeview HD tuner automatically scanned for new channels when I switched the TV on, and (living in West Wales) these were the HD channels I had access to:
*BBC One HD
*ITV 1 HD
*S4C Clirlun (S4C HD)
I was disappointed not to receive channel 4 HD, but I'm assuming this is down to Freeview HD and my location, rather than the TV itself. Anyway, the HD channels look beautiful, and it's really helpful that I do not need a replacement satellite dish.
I've connected my PS3 to the TV using a HDMI cable (which doesnt come with the TV, by the way) and it looks absolutely GORGEOUS.Read more ›
To obtain the best picture remember to alter the settings, using the picture wizard was simple and achieved excellent results. You can also find settings online but these don't relate to your own setting and should be used as a guide.
THe netcast is ok but not what would influence my decision to buy s screen, if it did then the sonys offer much more out of the box online content but at a much higher price for the same quality.
The only down side is the remote which had to go back as it needed each button to be pressed three or four times before it would work, easily solved though hence five stars. Brought mine from Richer sound for £428 with a five year guarantee (ten pound instore voucher available online to new customers).
