A matter of opinion, bought a 42" LCD 1.5 years ago from them, could not get a decent picture through its limited settings at all, to top it off the panel had a few millimetres of movement within its frame, customer services were awful upon phoning and told me in no simple terms to deal with the shop I bought it from which happened to be Comet, fortunately a Comet engineer deemed it to be faulty enough for either a replacement or refund and they did me a deal on a Philips knocking the money off to match the price of the LG...havent looked back much better TV.

*EDIT* The model in question was the 42LC2D, may have just been a faulty unit, but wasnt at all impressed with the limited amount of adjustment settings or build quality, or customer services..enough to put me off considering a LG in future. I do not have a high opinion of LG's XD engine for upscaling either.

Depends on your viewing distance, I could see no difference between 720p and 1080p at 3 meters.
Of course not everyone can be that far away, but also, not everyone can afford full HD and you can't argue with this price
Hot :thumbsup:

Not being argumentative, but it's not really fair to judge a brand from a faulty model - it could have been damaged in transit or anything. That said, we're all guilty of it.
As for the warranty, your contract is with the retailer which is why you had to go to Comet. No excuse for poor CS though.

Well it wasnt damaged in transit, the picture quality was washed out (meaning I personally am not at all impressed with the XD engine that LG use) Its picture settings were extremely limited not even allowing alteration of standard RGB levels or white balance. The LCD frame was loose in the panel, that was not a matter of transit damage, but shoddy build.

Unless the XD engine has vastly improved, along with the picture adjustment features of LG, then personally I would look elsewhere.

Yes, but you`re talking about a different model and an obviuosly faulty TV. I could tell you almost the same story about Pioneer and sony, but I`m not gonna say the whole brand is bad for one faulty TV! I`ve seen you post this elsewhere, so you obviously have a bee in your bonnet about it!

I assume you had the privelige of watching your tv on whole whole of it`s journey from manufacturer to distributor to your home to know that it wasn`t damaged in transit!? I very much doubt your movable screen was part of the original design!

Was just stating the fact that a poster stated LG TVs are great, I happen to disagree, and of course I am miffed about it, after shelling out £700 on a tv, LG washing there hands on it, and Comet having to send an engineer out to "prove" it was faulty as the LCD frame wobbled, and the fact is the XG Engine isnt up to much either! Philips Pixel Plus along with the extra RGB and white balance settings wipes the floor (even though clearly LG Philips are joint ventures on panel manufactuing) it just proves that the XG engine isnt all that, unless its improved since.

The XD engine has obviuosly improved since your experience and as far as I`m aware LG use Phillips panels.

Actually my phone call to LG couldnt determine one way or another than the LCD wobbled in the frame, they were not telling me it was faulty and that panel movement can occur, but without seeing the unit personally they couldnt advise me whether a few millimetres movement was a cause for concern!

How could they confirm over the phone that your screen moves?

Did I state they were trying to confirm over the phone my panel moved? They couldnt concur that the TV was faulty as they clearly deemed panel movement not to be a problem unless severe, unless they could guage what I was saying about a few millimetres movement, which was enough for an audible noise within its frame upon pressing it. Clearly LG are not bothered about wobbly panels if as they say panel movement can occur.

I have checked the manual for this model, and clearly there has been areas of improvement in XG Engine (white balance adjustment being one) however, there still is no manual adjustment of colour toning via RGB settings.

Seems that you are the one with the problem with me adding constructive critisism over LG.

my advice read the user manual online, look at the setting adjustments, read magazine reviews if possible and compare user manuals with the likes of philips, toshiba, sony, samsung etc etc....full manual picture adjustment personally is a boon for myself to get the best out of a TV, this doesnt offer full manual adjustment of RGB.
#20
Let this be a lesson to you all - don't you dare post an opinion on here as it is bound to be wrong.

On the same note I bought a Skoda once and it was really bad, in fact when I opened the bonnet I found there was no engine in it - the stupid company had put it in the boot. Would never buy one again!!

This is a good deal though so heat added.

Try out the XD engine then against other tvs and then see if my CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM still applies.

Try manually adjusting RGB levels. I was questionning LG as a total brand being I have had experience with customer service and a tv that despite its build faults still had very poor options in picture quality and something LG havent addressed yet.

So if you carry on calling me an idiot then I will have to report your post as slander.

By the way, mate, the term 'slander' only applies to verbal commmunication. Get your facts right, and stop making everyone's ears bleed.

Also, who is actually sad enough to report people on forums? LMAO.

I have the 50PC55 and cannot fault the picture quality produced from the XD engine at all.

I would opt for LG over philips any day.

2008 LG models are vastly superior to the 2007 models, particurly the menu systems / sound and processing ( scaling ) engine.

This set is excellent for normal television and dvds and is pretty decent for Blu Ray disks... for £450 it is a bargain.

You seem to all over the place here with a grudge against LG. Furthermore, you're wibbling on about an LCD panel whereas this TV is a plasma. :whistling:

For what it's worth, I've got 42" and 50" LG plasmas and the picture quality is great, particularly for the prices I paid at the time.

This is a good price for a good TV:thumbsup:

The 42PG6000 is a slightly better model with gorgeous looks available from here at £499 although I have never bought from these people:

Good to hear they have improved, still personally feel they need to revise their picture enhancement settings to allow more manual tuning of RGB levels.

I am referring however in my posts about the XD Engine being questionable as well as LG customer service have both of your sets got full control over RGB levels? If so great, they have improved.

Consequently we have a LG microwave, and not had any complaints with that, so its not a grudge against LG totally, just their tvs I feel in my experience are not that great, I am entitled my opinion surely?

Wealth of information on tvs, tv manufacturers discussed over on this forum :

Should help you make a decision on what you would like.

Cheers for that, Far too much info' for me to take in. Going by what i have read tho' i think i might go for the full hd lcd just incase i purchase a blueray player in the next few months.

If you want a tv to take pride of place in your lounge, knowing what source inputs you require (if standard as well as high definition its worth looking into the scaling engines of various manufacturers) if picture quality is important to you its worth reading up on a few manufacturers within your size tv and price bracket you are prepared to pay.

unless you are going to sit within 5 foot of the TV, then the 1080p TV won't make any difference except in your wallet.

Ah, so it wont make much difference even when playing blue ray discs? Also could you tell me if the cabinets on the 42lg5020 and this are the same or similar?

Get this and you have £150 to spend on discs or whatever you want.

The plasma is the better choice for many, many reasons
