You got a better TV though, so you would expect to pay a bit more. Saying that voted hot.

Heres a review fro HDTVORG.co.uk:

High Definition (HD) is where the LG 42LF66 excels. The level of detail and sharpness is outstanding, with the benefits of 1-to-1 pixel mapping clearly visible on the large 42in screen. The improvement that a Full HD resolution screen offers is not huge, but its there, and clearly visible.

Colour performance from the 8-bit panel is very good, but we couldn't help comparing it with LG's new 10-bit panels which offer that extra little bit of vibrancy to on-screen colour. Saying that, the LG 42LF66 is an improvement on previous LCD TV's from LG which have suffered from over saturated colours. The 42LF66 displays an impressive realism to difficult areas such as skin tones that indicates the indicates that inconsistent colour tones are a thing of the past.

The only real negative aspect of the LG 42LF66's performance are its black levels. As you would expect, not so noticeable in daylight conditions, turn the lights down however and darker areas show a hint of greyness. Shadow detail to a degree is retained, but not to the level of the class leading best.

We were also little disappointed with Standard Definition material on the 42LF66. The performance doesn't detract too much from the overall viewing experience, but it was disappointing to see some obvious video noise on terrestrial freeview. Saying that however, the fast motion capabilities of the 42LF66 were impressive, and showed very little evidence of motion smearing.

Acoustically, the LG 42LF66 is a solid performer with the twin 10w speakers delivering quite an impressive level of bass and a surround sound system (Surround MAX) that actually delivers a surround sound effect.

Based on reviews, an average TV. Personally, I'd go a couple of hundred quid more and get a much better TV with far better specs, but not bad for £550. Neither hot nor cold, though.
#16
Again, I have the 32" model and it's simply fantastic. Xbox 360 + Upscaler DVD player is amazing (I am too cheap for Blu-Ray)

Hi, I have dealt with Digital Direct in the past and they have provided a great service especially when one of my TV's broke down - no hesitation in recommending them at all.
Hope that helps

Ordered 2 Toshiba 37c3030 from them and no problems whatsoever. Highly recommended in my experience. :thumbsup:
#23
I Dont believe this..I only just ordered this one an hour ago, I trawled HUKD for a decent 42 Inch LCD and didnt see anything close to this, I then thought i would take a chance on this one, Feel so much better its been given heat...
#24
Plasma is sick! voted cold, due to the poor black levels, and weird skin tones! could get a panny plasma for 80 quid more!
#25
Ordered a TV from these guys a month ago - thet gave it a week then decided to tell me there were none left in stock. Maybe just my bad luck, don't know if anyon else has had problems with them.
#26
I've got this particular model it's a superb LCD but you do have to tweak it somewhat to get the best out of it, if your that way inclined.

I wouldn't put too much faith in that Avforum link, information on that website is a good bit better than posted in that thread.

easy tiger

I think that's his point.

Plasma > LCD. Of course, if you're stuck with a non-Sony brand 28" or less CRT right now, any >32" LCD is going to look pretty nice to be honest.

In addition:

Pioneer Kuro Plasma > Panasonic Plasma
Which can be rewritten: £3000 > £1000

Independent magazine 'Which' don't rate it much:

LG 42LF66

This 42-inch HD ready LCD TV with integrated digital (Freeview) tuner is fairly straightforward to use and the sound is OK but the picture is disappointing. Oddly, it features a light sensor that actually doesn't save any power.

The soft standard definition picture has a very slight green tint and lacks some detail. Edges are over-enhanced and when watching a sequence of moving snooker balls our panel spotted trails of colour. The Freeview picture is bland and can suffer from picture break up. High definition lacks depth, particularly on dark scenes and seems to be bereft of any real blacks.

It supports 1080p output but crucially does not refresh at 24 frames per second (so it isn't fully compatible with high definition DVD players).

Overall sound quality is actually quite reasonable - above average but a bit unrefined.

It's a relatively intuitive TV but let down by a fuzzy EPG and a fairly daunting remote, with some closely spaced buttons (although the angle of use is good).

It features a light sensor (which adjusts the picture brightness according to the ambient light in the room) but unusually it doesn't actually save any power.

The LG has 2 Scart sockets located at the rear, one with RGB, but neither are Scart link enabled (which can trigger a suitable VCR to record). There are 2 HDMI sockets for connecting to high definition equipment, sockets for connecting a camcorder and surround sound system. However, it's lacking a headphone plug or outputs for connection to a stereo hi-fi system.

Pros: Sound is above average, straightforward to use

Cons: Below par picture, light sensor that saves no power


Still prefer my 28" CRT to ANY LCD I have seen showing Standard Definition.........even 'Which' agree on that :thumbsup:
#34
Why do they say
"It features a light sensor (which adjusts the picture brightness according to the ambient light in the room) but unusually it doesn't actually save any power."

I would not think this feature was trying to save power,Just give you a better picture display?

Im tempted by this I must say
banned#35
Going for forward If you're buying a TV you should really be looking for 100HZ for maximum picture quality
#36
I don't know what to do! I want to buy this but that Which review has just put me off a bit. there seems to be reviews that rate it and some that don't...
This 1080p24 thing is new to me. Will it really not work properly with a Blu-ray player? Do these players HAVE to output at 24fps? Or is that just the best setting? It seems pretty bad if the only real 1080p source won't work with this.

It won't be any worse than what you've experience ever before (apart from the cinema). It's is just sped up a little to 25fps in most equipment.

24fps support, with 100Hz / 120Hz refresh rates, is a nice "high end" feature that has made its way into the <£700 market recently (often at the cost of 1080p resolution).

You takes yer picks ...

Thanks for the info. I'm not expecting miracles for £500 odd, as long as it actually works! I've got a Virgin V+, and also an xbox 360 with HD-DVD drive, so I'm just looking for a reasonable 42" TV to replace my current Hyundai 32".

Sadly, Digital Direct won't deliver to my work address... Empire direct will but for £25. Hmm, I wonder if I collect - will it fit in the car!? I suppose I'd have that problem if I got it sent to work too!

I got a 42@ Panasonic into my car when I had to pick it up from the depot - putting the back seats down. So unless you have a smart car ...
