Consumer Critiques

The set up is fairly hassle-free while I identified the manual to be lacking in much more detail, especially concerning a greater explanation of some of the features.
The HD picture is just Great and Attractive. I did boost the "Sharpness" from 70 to about 90, but otherwise, left it on 'AUTO'. I believed the screen may possibly be a small too major for my computer but I was completely is just good! I do not have a HDMI connector for the Computer, only the RGB, but it is nonetheless just outstanding. Hook-up was a matter of just connecting the plugs.
The sound is much better than fantastic, but not amazing. (Beneath, you will see how I was in a position to improve it)
I was going to give it 4 stars due to the fact the non-HD channels are just beneficial, and acceptable but, the additional I appear at it, I recognize it is really quite really good. So, it warrants 5 stars.
I have noticed a number of HDTVs, primarily in showrooms, and this 1 appears to be far better than those. It truly has an amazing picture with HD and I am particularly pleased with the purchase.
UPDATE 07/09/2011: Immediately after tinkering with the set for a month or so, I have been in a position to improve the sound considerably.....and it was quite beneficial to start with. A few hints: Press "Menu", then "Audio". I then left the "Auto Sound" on "On". Subsequent, I have the "Clear Voice II" turned "On". MOST IMPORTANTLY, I use the "MUSIC" mode..this produces a much far more dynamic sound! I use it with Treble of 67 and Bass of 92.
UPDATE 02/05/2012: Hi...I just saw the 8 comments that were left concerning my review and I will comment on a couple of of them. Preserve in mind, if you opt for "INTELLIGENT SENSOR" for your Picture Mode, you do not have the solutions to adjust the picture. With this mode, you get a really good picture without having to mess with any controls. I have erased what I had previously written on finding the top from the Video controls, and after I respond to the comments, I will share with you what I have now come up with for the Preferred picture I have gotten so far:
1. Concerning decreasing the SHARPNESS to , I tried this, and all I can say is, to every single their own. Personally, I pefer utilizing the greater numbers and I did adjust the 90 back to 85. And, the commenter was right, it does appear softer, but again, to every their own.
two. On applying or not making use of DYNAMIC CONTRAST, I toyed with going from HIGH (which is what I use) to OFF (which was advised) for about five minutes.....switching back and forth, back and forth. Again, I have to stick with getting it on HIGH....the OFF was far better than LOW or MEDIUM, but compared to HIGH, it seemed softer and a bit darker. But, once again, to every their own and I appreciate the comments and the imput....thank you.
Okay, this is what I have now completed with the Video controls and the picture is Wonderful!...smiling, nicely, to me anyway.
1. Click on "Menu"
2. Select "Picture" and hit Enter
3. I leave the "Ratio" at 16:9
4. Scroll down to "Picture Mode"...Enter
5. Select "Vivid (User)"...Enter
6. Contrast: 100 (all the way thru, you can toy with it see works for you)
7. Brightness: 85
8. Sharpness: 85
9. Color: 85
ten.Tint: I leave it in the middle
11.Color Temperature: I leave it in the middle
12."ADVANCE Manage"....hit Enter
13.Dynamic Contrast: High
14.Dynamic Color: High
15.Clear White: Low
16.Skin Color: three
17.Noise Reduction: High
18.Digital Noise Reduction: High
19.Gammma: Medium
20.Black Level: High
21.Then hit the "down" arrow on your remote and you will see "Color Gamut": Wide
Then, "Exit" button on your remote.
Basically, as I mentioned, the "Intelligent Sensor" is a certainly good picture, but for me, this kicks it up a handful of notches. Enjoy, either way!

I honestly did not know what to expect. I purchased this Tv on sale at Greatest Decide to purchase for 100 dollars off. I was in the industry for a new Television, really my to begin with Television buy.
After a week of use, I am rather especially pleased with my acquire.
The picture high quality is amazing. Every aspect of the picture can be customized- how warm the picture is, brightness, gamma exposure, and so on. Let me say, out of the box the picture was outstanding, this possibilities are even more for if you are extremely distinct.
The sound good quality is adequate. Not the absolute top, but it is a highly solid Tv. My dad's bravia's sound good quality is a lot worse so I am thankful that this setup is really good.
As far as attributes are concerned- it has all of the standards (sleep timer, auto-on/off, and so on). It is missing picture-in-picture but this appears almost irrelevant for the size of the Television. I am throughly impressed with the number of inputs and outputs on this Television. three HDMI ports, 2 typical RCA (red, white, yellow) inputs, and the Pc cord. The Computer cord input even has a headphone audio input! This makes utilizing my extended cord highly easy and converter no cost.
As a note, I use the Tv with my PS3 and Computer, and both appear and sound wonderful.
I am extremely pleased with this purchase and would advocate it to everyone.

  1. I really have grown to love my new LG 42LK450 42 inch TV. It has the brightest colors I have ever seen. I was hooked when I noticed how crystal clear the pictures were while I was watching TV in my break room at DISH. This TV is a really good TV, it's a great size and it looks beautiful on my wall. I even have HD Free for Life, I have only best.
