Dont fancy the look of the description It is pre-owned and will have noticeable cosmetic marks seeing that it will go in front of the TV in prime display.

I did wonder at the time of ordering as it talks of minor ones in the description below.

Mine has just arrived though and on inspection, I can't actually find anything at all really.

Just fingerprint grease, which after a wipe with computer cleaner looks as good as I could hope for, so a very happy bunny here

glad you got a good one but my worry is if it was so easy for you to wipe off the finger marks why wasnt it done at the point of the alleged 'refurb' process? what does the 'refurb' acually consiste of.

Yes that is a fair point.

Playing around with it now and the coax, toslink and USB ports work a treat.

The sound is rich and with enough controls to make it sound far better than the TV speakers.

Now going to get HDMI ARC setup and see how well that works.

At this stage alone I think it a great purchase for the money.

I've used Logitech speakers for a few years (from PC but on TV now) and they've always sounded great. Will I see much improvement do you think? Also worried these will block my LG TV remote sensor...

I can't speak for whether this would be any better than logitech speakers but it's a joy to use.

I haven't found a single thing with regards to functionality that either doesn't work as hoped or I didn't like.

The height could potentially block the remote sensor with some TV's but knowing the height is 94mm, it should be relatively easy to test it by mocking up a blocking scenario.

Buy several and power your home. 25 watts in and 120 watts Rms out. What am I missing here ?

Do these sound bars with built in subwoofers sound as good as ones with an external subwoofer? Always wondered. Current subwoofer is a bit big for our living room!

Bought a refurbished 42" LG TV from Tesco outlet, mint condition and still in its protective plastic wrap.

The box had been opened as had the box and bag inside.

If you don't like the product due to damage, send it back.

2 of 4 purchased at time of writing this.
Have purchased other items from Tesco's Ebay outlet and noticed they have small amounts of items but continually keep re-adding listing. So if interested in new and not available try another day.

Having now tested all the features, I could not have made a better purchase.

If I have to be picky, it is that the power cable is too short and the LCD display could do with being brighter.
