In 2009 I sold my car and decided to invest in a new TV so popped to out local Curry's store and at the front of the store was a beautiful LG flat screen TV.
I fell in love but thought I best look round the store and pop next door to Comet but I was drawn back to the LG 37LD450.
The offer price was £650 reduced from £1000, at the time it was a bargain but now you can purchase the TV for in the region of £450. With our purchase loaded in to the car we made our way home. The old TV was relegated to the bedroom to make way for our Black Beauty.
Not being overly technically minded my husband was the one to set up and assemble. With following the instructions the assembly was easy as it was sitting on a TV stand...It is a little more complicated if you were to fix it on the wall, but can't comment further on that as I didn't do that.
The TV was neatly placed on the stand it was now time to connect all the cables and sky box. The instructions assist with the connection of free view/virgin media/sky boxes.
When watching TV programs we always opt to watch them in HD and WOW...This screen really did it justice the clarity of the programs were spot on, I believe this to be due to the fact it is full HD 1080p (which is the optimum p for a 37" screen)
We do not have any surround sound so we rely totally on the fixed screen speakers and these did not disappoint. It's not home cinema quality but has a crystal clear audio on a low and high volume.
All the cables are situated at the rear of the screen so they are out of sight but I still found them easy to reach all cables are labelled and easy reach. But as you won't know the location of the cables until you are used to the TV you need to be able to look behind the screen. There are 2 HDMI cables which were ideal for us with the Sky + box and XBOX 360 cables. We have nothing else which requires use of the HDMI cable but if you have surround sound/DVD Player or anything else which would require the used of a HDMI port you want to consider purchasing an adaptor rather than keep changing the ports over.
The remote control is nice and simple and has clearly marked buttons. But personally I like to use only one controller so have linked my Sky remote to the TV screen and rarely use the LG Controller.
If a TV can be described as sleek and sexy this is it. It has a black, slim depth and narrow frame to there is hardly any wasted viewing area.
On the bottom of the TV just above the speaker there is a LG logo which is fairly subtle and non evasive of the TV.
I would not hesitate to recommend this screen to anyone as it has with stood 1000's of hours of viewing time and really is as good as the day we brought it. Do consider how many HDMI cables you would need as only 2 may leave you a little short if you're a gadget King/Queen.
You know it's time to start enjoying Full HD 1080p, and the LD450 is an easy way to get into it. A beautiful LCD with all of the innovations that make LG TVs a better viewing experience.
