“ Brand: LG / Size: 42 in „
This TV, which I've been using as a second set for a few months now, is packed with features given the asking price (£429) ; it's got free sat and HD built in, as well as smart features including netflix, love film and i-player (with the ability to download further apps). It does not have 3D, despite the somewhat misleading product name. The set itself looks really attractive, due in part to having a very small surround but also as it has a fancy looking stand, although it's not a super-slim TV by any means.
Set up was easy, and the menu is intuitive, and the picture optimization wizard is a nice feature. In terms of controlling everything the remote works well - although it's a little plasticky. Connectivity is excellent, with built in ethernet and wifi and it's all fast and we've never had any issues with it crashing whilst being used. Movies stream in HD perfectly via wifi with no drop outs. The apps are limited as most require you to use the magic remote, not included with this set, but perhaps worth considering should you be thinking of using this as a main set.
In terms of the picture quality - it is very good, blacks are not exceptional but are still of pleasing quality. The screen is glossy and the viewing angles too are impressive. It's a shame then that the set is let down somewhat by the sound which is rather hollow and not of the same quality as the picture, however the addition of LG NB2520A Speaker Bar System with Integrated SubWoofershould improve the sound somewhat, especially as the integration should be seamless as the TV also supports HDMI ARC. I was surprised to see that this TV outputs Dolby Digital from Netflix! However it does not pass through Dolby Digital from an external source.
There are 3 HD inputs,3 USB inputs, component input, LAN input and an optical out, which should be plenty to connect all of your equipment.
Overall, it's a very good value for money TV, the picture and features do not disappoint, you just may want to improve the sound, which is not as good as it should be.
