Advantages: Large, Bright, Connectivity, Sound
Disadvantages: 2 HDMI ports, not enough for some!
I got this TV for the living room about 3 years ago when we moved house, we used in there for about 9/10 months, then I realised that we could of gotten a bigger one, so we bought a 50" Samsung, and put this LG one in the games room up the stairs for the kids. I was happy using it in the living room and have had a pleasant experience, now the kids can use it in their games room up the stairs, for playing games, watching movies when they have friends over.
The TV does look smaller than our previous 42" it just takes some time to adjust because the speakers are built in, and not attached on to the side so therefore looks smaller, you quickly adjust and it's really just the same. The TV its self sits upon a base which turns left and right, excellent if the sun hits the TV and you're struggling to see it. The frame, and the base is made from high quality, shiny material. There is the LG logo placed in the bottom middle of the frame surrounding the screen.
The screen is an excellent bright 42 inches, excellent for playing games, watching movies, connecting you laptop to show pictures, this screen is excellent in all respects, very bright and clear, great for everything, and everyone will enjoy.
Sound Quality -
Ultimately it is down to the quality which is sent from the broadcaster, but this TV never fails in the sound aspects of things, very clear no matter how low or how high you have it turned up, you can always make it out without a problem.
This TV was used in the living room for under a year a preformed very well, there is no scratches, or marks on the screen or frame, you get a microfiber cloth included for cleaning the dust off of the shiny surface. Now that it is in the kids' games room, it is getting much more use, and is still providing the high quality picture and sound.
With the LG 42LD450 you get:
2 HDMI sockets
1 SCART socket
1 PC (VGA) socket
AV socket at side
Also, when purchasing we noticed it said that it had a Freeview digital tuner built in, I have not used this, because we had sky, then moved to virgin, which is in all the rooms where the TV has been getting used so it I haven't had the need to use it thus not commenting about it.
This product is currently on sale in Argos for £419.98, grab yourself a bargain because when I bought this it was a little over £600, you are defiantly getting value for money with this TV with all the features and quality you get, it is well worth your while!
Overall Opinion -
In my overall opinion I feel that the TV performs well in all aspects to what it is up to and hasn't failed me or the kids' yet, and I have no doubt that anything could go wrong with a TV of this quality and with a brand like LG which is very respected and trusted brand.
Would recommend this TV to everyone because of the high quality display, and clear sound which is excellent for everyone, a TV for your kids to use in the spare room, one for the living room etc, this TV has endless uses and comes at a very reasonable price.
Thanks for reading! I hope this has been of interest to you and has helped assist you in your decision.
Summary: Excellent TV, Value for money, Great Quality.
