If you're looking for a quality 42 inch LCD TV don't discount TV wonder, LG 42LH5000.

'Terrific insight and sharpness; supremely natural colours; very decent motion; better-than-most styling.' What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine.

The LG 42LH5000 is evidence, yet again, that no one can get even close to LG for features per pound!

Taking the picture first and the 42LH5000 is one of the most comprehensively equipped TVs for its class. Want 1080p resolution? Check; it's standard. 100Hz scanning? Well, the 42LH5000 goes one stage further by offering a full 200Hz TruMotion processor. What about an intelligent light sensor that doesn't just alter the picture to suit lighting conditions but helps save power, too? You guessed it; this impressive LG has that too. To this list you can also add the latest version of LG's XD Engine. The new Twin XD Engine offers faster, more accurate picture processing than ever before with some amazing results to show for it. Match a screen response time of just 3ms with a brightness of 500cd/m2 and a stunning contrast ratio of 80,000:1 and it's clear to see that this is a TV that's anything but average. In short, whatever you're watching will be crisp and detailed with superb resolution and the ideal brightness.

As usual, we would always recommend using a separate home cinema system but if you're intent on using the LG's built-in sound system you might be pleasantly surprised. Using an invisible speaker system with Clear Voice II the 42LH5000 sounds bright and precise. Furthermore, the SRS TruSurround system creates a spacious sound that avoids the typical TV boxiness.

In terms of connections, the 42LH5000 is top flight and up there with more expensive TVs. Triple rear-mounted HDMI (and one side-mounted) sockets allow for the connection of 4 High Definition sources, such as a PS3, HD-TV box, HD camcorder and Blu-ray. In addition to this, the 42LH5000 boasts twin SCART sockets and component connections for your analogue sources. Furthermore, the PC input makes this attractive TV the perfect complement to your home computer. Topping off the wide range of sockets is a digital optical sound output - ideal for connecting this LG 42 inch 200Hz LCD TV to your home cinema for a useful upgrade in sound quality.

As the wise men of What Hi-Fi said, the 42LH5000 is also quite a looker. Featuring a gloss black surround with subtle blue deco highlighting and elegant stand, the 42LH5000 looks as good as it performs. Thanks to the latest technology, it's also Energy Saving Recommended. For a 42 inch, 1080p, 200Hz LCD TV, the LG 42LH5000 is the only number you need to know!

Tempting. Been waiting for the lg ld490 to drop in price again to around the £390 to £400 mark (which seems to be a regular occurance). The ld490 had built in freeview hd but is 50 hz. Aaaargh decisions decisions.
is this full HD or HD ready, can see references to both

It appears quite frequently, I'm sure it's still Full HD: http://www.google.co.uk/products?hl=en&expIds=17259,24279,27906&xhr=t&q=hd+ready+1080p&cp=9&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wf
HD ready usually applies to devices able to display up to 720p - although alot of manuafacturers put it on devices capable of way more due to the public perception of it...

Full HD applies to a set capable of 1080p resolution (1920/1200)
Hd ready simply means that the tv is ready to handle HD inputs.

Nothing to do with 720p or 1080p.
This is a cracking set. I got one in July 2009 and it is definitely full HD. The 200 hertz picture quality is excellent and HD sports and movies are brilliant. Very stylish looking set too. This is an excellent price if you can get your hands on one.
I bought this set last week from York. However, if anyone is interested they did have one left in the Leeds branch. It's an excellent telly for the money imo and a good looking set.
I also bought the lg 32lh7000 from a deal from here which was £299. That one has a very similar spec plus Bluetooth but I don't know if we'd really use that feature? My OH isn't friends with me at the mo for spending too much this year but he'll get over it - hopefully!
Hd ready simply means that the tv is ready to handle HD inputs. Nothing to do with 720p or 1080p.

originally the usage was on a non 1080p device to still promote the fact it can do HD, originally it had everything to do with the type of output, but like my post said, nowadays the marketing people put it on most HD sets, even 1080p ones, which is not want the original distinction used to be...
HD Ready seems to be used for sets that do not have HD freeview or HD sat built in.
HD ready = 720p = 1280 x 720
Full HD- 1080p - 1920 x 1080 resolution
