I bought this Television as an ex-display model from Curry's last year at a very cheap price of £250. This to be honest is probably the best bargain I have ever found and I am very glad that I purchaed it.
This Flat Panel, 42 inch, LCD Television has a good quality picture, although not the best at 720p rather than the usual 1080p of today but it does run very smoothly. As I live in Canterbury at the moment, my television signal is very poor and so it does make watching television a little hard at times, however this is no fault of the Tv itself.
On purchase, it i easy to assemble, with one large semi-circular stand that slots into the main television frame. There are also two screws which ensure that it is very secure. It is also very easy to tune in and this can be done both via the remote or the buttons on the right hand side of the television. This is done by pressing menu - setup and then pressing auto tune, this will search and automatically tune the correct stations into the correct channels. As it is also HD ready, there is no requirement for another separate Digital box.
The display resolution is 1366 x 768 pixels again, not as high as many of the televisions being produced today. It's aspect ratio is also a 16:9 widescreen.
The 42lg2000 can be used alongside many other electronic appliances, and contains; three AV sockets, 3 HDMI sockets, 1 component and one rgb socket. I often use the HDMI and RGB sockets so that I can plug my XBOX 360 and pc into the television and have a 42 inch pc monitor.
The remote also has a built in guide that lets you change the mode of the actual t*v to best suit whatever it is that you are using it for, these modes are; cinema, sport, game and off which gives you a normal unchanged picture.
The guide is very simple to use so that you can see what is on during the day, however this feature can only be accessed via the remote. The features that can be accessed through the buttons on the side of the tv are; Volume (up and down), Channel (Up and down), Menu (which allows the user to adjust the setup, picture, audio, time, options inside the telelvision and put a lock on the telelvision. You can also switch between the inputs talked about earlier by using a separate button.
Overall this telelvision has served me well so far and I have ownwed it for nearly over a year now. It does let out a large quantity of heat but I never usually have it on for too long. It serves it purpose very well and it's interface is exceptionally easy to use, both through the remote and the television itself.
I am very pleased with this product and would recommend the LG brand to those looking for a new telelvision.
