we have this tv and have been happy with it. good sound and picture.

plays stuff from usb but doesnt play DTS Sound so u need to convert to ac3 or something
#7
no HD freeview tuner?
#8
End of Line... LG are bringing out a new model, so dumping all the stock.

Good TV though - we've bought loads for our hire stock at the new low price.

Yes it has freeview, no it doesn't have an internet connection, but do you really need a net connection to watch TV ?

Its very very basic, and no internet, no media streaming, posts of bad backlight bleed and clouding.

You are ONLY paying for this TV being thin thats all, Just because its LED does not mean its good.

I seen one of these in tesco myself yesterday and it was horrible, washed out colours, backlight bleed in the corners, and I played with the settings as well.

Yes it looked nice, but thats it. and this is why this TV is cheap for a LED

We have this TV along with a Panasonic S20.
Yes this TV is basic in terms of no LG netcast etc. But the picture is fine. The S20's picture quality is better for films esp blu ray, but it is useless when the room is light. This TV is in the lightest room in our house and has no such issues. The picture quality is fine, and in SD very minimal difference between this one and our S20.
This TV is also really good for low power consumption, especially if you change the settings using the energy saving button on the remote.
This is cheap! Paid almost £100 for at Christmas.
Heat Added.

When people are saying Media Streaming do they mean streaming from say a home network.

Just wondering as I've got a NasDuo and was need to get a new tv for upstairs and was also going to get a new Revo for XBMC upstairs aswell, but if the tv could stream then that might be a better option in some sense (obviously won't look as good, but will be worth consideration).

You can get 42" LCD 1080p for this price and cheaper all day long, like the 42ld450 which has better reviews.

Yes.

No free view hd, net tv or network media streaming.

It's cheap but that's why. Still a good deal for an led set if you don't need the features ( I would consider these pretty essential though these days)

That's on the 4900, which I'm waiting to drop to around this price....soon!

To be fair I wouldn't call these features 'essential' in a tv. Most people will be using Freeview+ HD etc which (at least the Humax) all have these features built in anyway. Therefore paying extra to duplicate these in a tv just seems pointless.

If you're after a decent tv, and alreayd have freeview boxes etc, then why would you not go for this? Yes some LCD tvs may provide slightly better pictures, but the one I've got is more than adequate.

I bought the smaller version of this back in december for the same price from argos, the LG 32LE5300. i bought it even though there have been lots of bad reviews...to be honest I'm loving my TV, i don't see a major difference between this series of LG's and other LED tv's with all these "extra" features (apart from £100-£200). Great price, heat added

I got a brand new one from a mate for £350 a month ago so I can't complain. Better than the 720p I had before.

its no better than the LD450 42"
the lx6900 3d model for £499 was better.
it was out of stock on the Currys/PCW website but we could pre order 1300 for delivery between the 26th and 29th of april.
sold out in 2 days

Anyone who has a PS3 and Sky HD presumably wouldnt need any of this anyway? Media Streaming and net tv can be done through the PS3 and Sky HD instead of Frieeview HD.
I thought everyone had Sky these days. Don't get me wrong I hate paying for Sky but the tv signal isnt great in my area and no Virgin so only option is Sky.
#26
Been looking at this telly to day in work, what can I say, fantastic picture for the price, I was looking to get one myself!
Plenty of stock in most stores (Checked on the system).
I don't think DSGI will be making much margin on these mind...
#27
Indeed, PS3 will stream your "media" just fine. Sky/Virginfor a tv signal & Freeview HD aint even available in our area. Paying a few hundred more for little gain... The usual hotdeals electronic experts shooting down a gid priced telly

Before reading canada16's posts, you need to ask yourself 'why is the babysitter allowing them to stay up so late?'
#29
I had bought this from last time deal.
My view
1. Good clarity and sound.
2. DTV is good and can have some 40 odd channels
3. Low power consumption
4. NEver expected 42" to be this much huge !! :)

Negatives
1. No internet streaming
2. No HD Freeview (Freeview is present)

Well you could get freesat... but that too will give you HD and recording so the same point you're making really (you just don't need to subscribe) We have sky, doesnt really influence it but theres no freeview HD reception in this area yet, so having this tv without freeview HD doesn't bother us either.
I think plenty of people do have freeview still,

You can't possibly compare TVs in a store like Tescos with very bright ambient light. In your house the lighting is totally different and the colours will look very different too.

Just ordered one for the spare room.... Does anyone know the best way to wall mount? I'm guessing that it won't need a hefty bracket with it being lightweight.

We have this TV mounted by this bracket and it works a treat.
Opted for that one as we needed one that we could angle down, and this one allows that where other (cheaper ones) don't.

Thanks for taking time to reply! Having quickly scanned amazon I'm going to attempt to mount the TV as flush as possible to the wall as I don't need the downward angle. This one mounts just 8mm off the wall. I bet the cabling will get interesting

north east area is down to the last few instore now.

A girlie question now... we have just got one of these... and it arrived with a 'plum' coloured trim on the bottom of the set. On the box it lists several colour options... but we didn't have a choice when ordering it? It's not mentioned in any of the descriptions on any supplier info.... so is this the reason why it's cheap??? People prefer to have a black set than one with a coloured bottom??? I for one was delighted with my husband's choice as it matches our wallpaper ;)
How do you feel about about your coloured trim and this not being mentioned in any specs??
