HD-Ready 1080p
LG HD Ready 1080p (Full HD) provides 1920 ?1080p picture resolution delivering incredible picture clarity and vibrant colours. Youll see up to 5 times the picture clarity and detail in comparison to standard definition and double the detail compared to HD Ready 720p. 1080p television is the only way to fully experience the true potential of high definition gaming and blu-ray which takes you even closer to the action.

Built-in Freesat-HD
Freesat brings you over 140 digital TV and radio channels, including high-definition (HD) programmes from the BBC and ITV-all for free.

HDMI 1.3 Deep Color / 3xHDMI
HDMI 1.3 supports 30-bit, 36-bit, and 48-bit colour depth. HDMI 1.3 eliminates on-screen colour banding for smooth tonal transitions and subtle gradations. It also enables increased contrast ratio, and represents many times more shades of grey between black and white.

100Hz TruMotion
TruMotion one hundred hertz reduces blurring on fast moving scenes by displaying one hundred images per second. Standard TV sets only display fifty images per second so more information means a better viewing experience for watching sports and movies.

Intelligent Sensor 2
LG Intelligent Sensor technology finds the ideal brightness, sharpness, colour and contrast picture setting within any environment to protect against eyestrain and reduce power consumption up to 69%. Simply turn on intelligent sensor in the picture menu and it will do all the work for you.

Anyone recomend one of these?
My dad is after a 42 inch and I pointed him in the direction of the PANASONIC VIERA TXP42G15 freesat plasma as it gets great reviews but is £699 without extra warranty.

Oh and delivery needs to be added to title as its £39.99!

Lol. I have a 6 yr old panny plasma and it still looks great. I personally prefer the natural look of plasma and the g15 I mention is very good and gets great reviews where the lg has very mixed ones.

Now I see no point in getting an LED as yet as they are only lcd with led backlight.
#9
Incredibly good deal given you get a full HD set, built in Freesat (at least £80 on its own) and 3 year warranty. Also if you are buying by CC, it's worth checking your T&C. Nationwide and Egg offer an additional one year on top of your existing warranty. So if you use either cards, you get the fourth year free.

well they are thinner and use less electricity for a start. I agree theres no point replacing your current LED for LCD but if I was in the market for a new TV anyway I would certainly be eying the LED.

This TV is the slightly older F generation where as the current generation is H. However this is also very high up the range of Fs so basically this is an older high end TV.

edit: I take that back, looks like it came out in 2009, LGs naming conventions are starting to confuse me, if this is a newer range why isnt it called the LH7700.

And much more expensive too and is there even one with freesat built in? Doubt it will be anywhere near the price of this or the g15 either.

Google he say yes!

Indeed LEDs TVs are expensive, in the long run they should be cheaper though as LEDs are cheaper than many other light sources. Also this should allow the whole TV to run on a lower voltage which will simplify power supplies and materials.

They are expensive because they are new, no other reason.

At nearly 400 quid more for the led one over the plasma g15 I doubt very much that over a 5yr period you would save enough on leccy to pay back the extra spent, thats if you keep it 5 yrs or it dont fail!

I meant that the price will come down in the future, but re-reading my post I can see how you mis-understood.

I can see how they are nice but my dad is a bit tight lol. He needs a new tv now to replace a 6 yr old crt so any will look good as his crt is a tad blurry now.

I still like the picture quality of plasma over lcd myself but down side is power hungry etc. But no doubt he will like the fact the lg is just under 600 quid delivered inc a 3 yr warranty compared to the g15 at richer sounds at £699 with 1 yr warranty.

After reading reviews though the lg dont seem to match the panny so not sure what to tell him.

Freeview = TV aerial based less channels
Freesat = Thru sat dish same channel line up as Sky without the pay channels there are also other channels out there that you can pick up too
#21
Superb price! LCD technology nowadays is as good as, if not superior, to plasma sets of same price.
#22
Friend got one of these LG 42LF7700 models at my recommendation from John Lewis at £549 in November (price matched to Richer Sounds at the time, though RS subsequently went higher - currently showing at £599 RS with option of 5yrs cover for 10%). Think JL continued to show as £750+ until they stopped stocking it online (at least).

Have to say I am very impressed with the picture quality both on Freeview Standard Definition and Blu-ray 1080p. Haven't got to see it yet in Freesat HD mode (ie satellite dish fed) as they hadn't had their dish fitted when I was there - but would expect it to be similarly good.

So good find if you want some HD live TV (ie BBC HD currently and ITV HD from 2nd April!) regardless of where you live (as Freesat covers UK just as Sky does - comes from the same cluster of satellites in the sky - ie dish points to the same place!).

Otherwise if you want HD via aerial - ie Freeview HD - need to check when your area will get the signals (eg mine is sometime in 2011, whereas been enjoying Freesat HD for 12+ months already via a decoder box). Of course this set will take a HD signal via HDMI in from an external Freeview HD decoder if/when you want it.

I'd also consider their 47" model (eg £699 at RS) which is c25% more screen for c25% more price - ie prorata as good a buy but with a larger viewing range for the 1080 HD aspiration.

PS: Dont forget opportunity with the HUKD vendor of cashback - eg Digital Direct 3% via TopCashBack etc!

Sorry to hear that. Not actually read any review saying it was that bad but most say it does take some setting up to get the best picture.

Not true.

Virgin1, Virgin1+1, 4Music, Yesterday, Dave, Dave ja vu, Sky Sports News, Quest, Five USA, Fiver, Viva and Sky3 are all available on Freeview but encrypted on digital satellite. There are 153 channels available, a great many of which are regional variations of BBC and ITV channels or +1 versions, and not different channels in their own right.You can't get Sky 1 for example, or any of the other free-to-air Sky channels.

You can also view some of the worst movies ever committed to celluloid on Zone Horror and Zone Sci-Fi. I saw part of one once where somebody wrote a virus to cripple a self-aware computer... using a Gameboy Colour.

IMO, Freesat is utter rubbish. Picture quality is no better than Freeview and since you're missing out on the above channels for no good reason, it's a bit pointless. There's a list of the available channels here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_channels_on_Freesat. As for their grand claims before launch of making HD TV free to air, there's a grand total of 2 channels showin HD content, and even then only a tiny selection of programs.

This is not a bad TV set at this price, but don't allow Freesat to be the deciding factor in your purchase.

I have one and its an excellent tv. It has 3 HDMI ports, computer, USB, oh the list goes on. The freesat is amazing and you can direct feed from your sky dish. (cable from wilkinsons @ 25p per metre, plugs are 99p for 2). The HD is crystal and scanning is superb. The freesat is also currently trialing a beta version of ITV i-player and bbc i-player to play on this tv via your broadband (wirless via PCMCIA card if you want) should be available in time for the world cup in June 2010.

I seriously cannot reccommend this TV enough

Thats a list of freeview channels, and does not include the miriad of alternative channels available on the astra satelitte. Also you can currently get BBC HD and ITV HD via freesat

Thats a good review but there are so many mixed ones on this model I dont know what to recomend to my dad at all. I am bit drawn to panny plasmas mainly because I have one and bro inlaw a newer one and both have been fantastic and most lcd I have seen are not as nice picture wise, seem a bit un natural colour wise etc.

I understand your love of the panny's, but then you will pay the price. LG manufactured this in direct competition with the panasonic freesat when it was released, and read the online reviews at that time comparing the two sets, you will find the LG is highly rated. This will never exceed what you get from a panny though, but this will be much more cost effective.

I would say that if you dad is not a huge tv fanatic then this tv will more than suffice his needs now and in the future

It's not freeview, it's a list of Freesat channels, hence the title and omission of the aforementioned channels which are not available. The "grand total of two channels showing HD content" refers to the two channels you mentioned, one of which, BBC HD doesn't show any programmes before 5pm, and finishes at midnight.

You're correct that the list doesn't show all of the Astra channels, this list does: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_free-to-air_channels_at_28E Not entirely sure that an extra load of shopping channels, foreign channels and those God-awful babecast stations, which are about as titillating as accidentally trapping it in your zip, make the effort of adding them worthwhile.

If you're interested at all in 3D Blu-Ray or Sky HD in 3D then this TV won't cut it. I'd only buy a new telly right now if you either have no choice, broken old telly (but then I'd get a cheap 2nd hand TV); Or you know you won't care about the flood of 3D Blu-Rays that will start in about 5 - 8 weeks and the other 3D wonders around the corner. Oh of course if you have enough money that buying 2 big screen tellys in the space of 2 or so months is no big deal.

I dont care full stop about 3d or even sky for that matter so that is all meaningless to me and many others.

If my dad buys a 42 inch flat screen he will want 6 years out of it and will be happy. 3d tv is just nonesense to him and me for that matter. Also I have no Blue ray player and neither does my dad and we both have no intention of getting one. Both quite happy with xvids vis usb:thumbsup:

Considering that even now, blu-ray players and 1080p content still aren't totally commonplace, I don't think theres any reason to believe that 3DTV will truly take off for another 3-5 years. We haven't even got 3DTV sets yet, and lord knows how much they will cost when they appear. For the time being, that technology will be the mainstay of early adopters only.

3D will be extortionate in the next few months!!! and prices wont be reasonable for the everyday user for at least a year or so, maybe 2!! :w00t: For the limited content you might be able to get, if you can afford the extortionate price tag both sony blu-ray and sky put on their premuim 3D discs and channels. I think for the main stream for now, this is a cracking tv at a great price.

I agree plasma gives a more natural picture, people tend to like LCD or LCD with LED backlighting because they can have such over bright pictures. Fed up of seeing football with glowing green grass and so on. Whatever TV you buy you still need to set it up to look right
