LED Display Technology: LED (light-emitting diode) TVs are actually a type of LCD TV. LCD HDTVs use standard compact fluorescent tubes to illuminate the picture. LED HDTVs, on the other hand, replace those fluorescent tubes with backlighting technology. LED TVs might therefore say "LCD display" on the packaging--this is perfectly normal.

I am an audio visual engineer... I source TV's at trade normally, however it would be hard to beat the price I paid on Amazon this TV... This is teh 'V' version (Full HD) and I honestly wondered if they got it mixed with the 'U' (HD ready) version as the price went up the day after I had purchased! OK, if you want loads of HDMI's and USB's & smart capability this is not the TV for you as you would need an LB580V or orLB650V for all that + 3D.... however for basic connectivity with 2 x HDMI, 1 x USB, Component/Composite & Scart this set will work great for you. Again because of the different type of stand, if you want to twizle your TV, this is not the set for you, but if on a slim shelf or regular TV type console/unit I actually quite like this design (massive high end 70" Samsungs use this foot design - albeit metal not plastic). On to the main event - what is the picture like... I would say an 8/10... I have seen several that are better but a whole lot that are far worse. the main thing is that the colours are reasonably natural for a modern LED (you can tweek them if you wish but often it is not worth the time as they come set up pretty well)... I have connected an smart Blu-ray (i-player/Netflix etc...) & Humax PVR to this set in my sitting room and I have to say when reproducing images at 1080p (1920 x 1080) the picture is near faultless... the brights are bright & the blacks are black! The Freeview HD tuner definitely makes a difference ... watch BBC1 on Ch 1 (576i) and then compare it with CH 101 (1080i/p... see below) and there is a remarkable difference in clarity. Geeky bit.... Freeview HD encoders to change automatically between 1080i at 50 frames per second to 1080p at 25 frames per second depending on the program's group of pictures structure...Read more ›

Great picture, great value but poor stand. Whilst this won't affect most people, having a stand that isn't in the centre has created a few complications with fitting the screen on the TV unit. That said, this is still a great screen for the price and highly recommended.

I purchased this TV to upgrade from last years Samsung F5000 due to horrendous motion blur and numerous glitches. The LG's picture quality is very crisp with much smoother motion and far better viewing angles. The sound quality leaves a lot to be desired but just pair it with a decent sound bar and you're good to go. I would recommend this TV for gaming too, Forza 5 looks great with nice punchy colours. If you want a good performing TV without any Smart or 3D gimmicks, opt for this.

Bought this TV after narrowing it down to 3 Televisions ( A Panasonic and a Samsung were also in contention). Cannot complain with the purchase. The main use for the TV is gaming and it is great. Graphics are Crisp and movement is smooth (Playing Fifa 15). Great Picture for Netflix also once you get the settings all modified. Would definitely reccommend this TV if you're looking in the 300 price range

This TV is great. It's energy efficiant and actually turns itself off after a while (you can stop it if you press a button on the remote). The picture quality is great and so is the sound. The size is just perfect and it's actually really easy for one person to carry because it's lightweight so it's perfect to move if you need to. The legs are actually sturdy and hold the TV extremely well.

Slim, stylish TV that is competitively priced. Nothing to complain about with the picture or sound quality. There are no Smart Wi-Fi features or 3D compatibility, but it does have Freeview HD.

Great TV, the picture is superb, the sound is good, and there's plenty of inputs. However the stand is pretty awkward, it's right at the edge of the TV so you need a stand atleast as wide as the TV (43") which can be a pain for a smaller flat. Would still highly reccomend.

This TV is a fantastically priced Tv for what it is. It isn`t 3d or smart, hence the price. I bought this as a replacement for my Samsung which is still working however the sound quality has always been alot be be desired. I am happy with all elements of the TV and i am very surprised to hear people comment about the sound. If you are on HD you do not need the volume any higher than 12 to hear crystal clear. The feet on the TV can make it tricky to find a suitable stand as they differ from most which have the central stand, this added £80 to the price of purchase as we had to purchase a new stand, lesson learnt do your home work first. Saying that i still give 5 stars.
The TV is slimline and has a very small bezel around the outside so the 42 inch screen is almost the whole front of the TV.
