I've got one of these and it's an excellent TV, BUT, as I understand it, it is now an old model that's been superseded by the LG 42LK450. This is on sale at BestBuy etc. for £329.99.
Same/similar TV for less money.

A decent TV. You could do much worse than this. Note that it suffers from the panel 'lottery'. You will get either an A-MVA or S-IPS panel... S-IPS is preferred.

If picture quality is your priority, then you could do better, & get HD Freeview & avoid the panel &/or processor 'lottery'... see http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/toshiba-40rv753b-lcd-tv-1080p-freeview-hd-347-60-amazon-co-uk/957082

You still raving on about your Sony? Don't you realise that this site to get good deals? In this case the deal is an LG LCD TV - vote it cold if you can get it cheaper elsewhere; not because it does not like the product.

I bought the LG 42LD490 (same as this tv but it also has freeview HD and built in internet connectivity) and the picture quality is excellent and overall the tv is great, much better than most tvs that are £100 more and have less features.

But I have to agree with jedthefrog, this tv has been around for a while and it seems the newer model that's replaced it is, at least specification wise, is very similar plus it has an extra HDMI port. Doesn't seem to have many reviews as of yet because it's new but the Best Buy deal was posted on here a week ago here

I heard about this before I bought my LG but thought I would try my luck -- how do I find out what type of panel I have? I'm just curious to know which one I got

Bought the newer version of this from best buy for £330 last week, very pleased with it.

I think you check the long model number on either the TV or the box it came in.
The 4th character in the last block of text should indicate the panel type.
A W should indicate an IPS panel, a D indicates a MVA panel.
Apparently IPS have better colour reproduction and viewing angle, MVA have better response time.
There are a number of posts in the TV / LG section on www dot avforums dot com with more details.

I was unaware there was a newer model to be honest!

I havn't purchased this yet, but I did a quick search and this TV is coming up at approx £450 everywhere else, hence the post :)

In light that you can get the newer one for cheaper, I may just go to best buy! Will weight up benefits first

Did I specify anywhere it was LED?

My local Tesco had this @ £299 last week. Out of stock yesterday tho, so as mentioned - an old model. Not voted either way as this price is the cheapest for this model, but I'm not sure its hot either.

Thanks greyowl

Looks like it is a MVA panel, honestly not fussed either way though. The picture is great plus I got it for £349 with a John Lewis price match so got a 5 year guarantee too (all thanks to HUKD post :D )
