    Great TV For the Price – Maybe better for the avg joe., May 12, 2009

    This review is from: LG 42LH40 42-Inch 1080p 120 Hz LCD HDTV, Gloss Black (Electronics)

    Bought this TV for $999.99 from my local yellow-tag retailer. I’ve had the tv for almost 3 weeks now and over-all, I am happy.

    Pros:
    1. The menu system looks nice and is very easy. No confusion even for the most tech ignorant user.
    2. Energy saver feature is nice, maybe a little gimicky but nice.
    3. Very light weight and easy to install.
    4. 4 HDMI inputs are great.
    5. Physical appearance in-home is very nice.
    6. HD picture is amazing unless very fast motion is involved (see below).

    Cons
    1. Standard definition picture can be poor. This was almost always remedied by putting the picture on “Game” mode.
    2. Fast motion does result in blurring. It’s not all the time and usually only lasts a split-second but it can be VERY noticeable. This is not my first HD TV but is my fist LCD. I expected much less blurring for 120HZ but to be honest, don’t know how much blurring could be considered normal for an LCD. So far I have only experienced the blurring with TV and movies both through the cable box and my AppleTV. My Xbox 360 seemed fine but I have only tried 2 games, neither of which were sports games. I have not yet tested PS3 or BluRay.

    This next thing could be considered good or bad. For me, it is a plus.
    The TV uses “TrueMotion” which will drastically change the way movies and shows appear. If you look-up judding or anti-judding on google you’ll find out exactly what this means. In short, you’ll notice camera pans and movements that you would’ve never noticed before. I actually like it and feel like it makes the picture more realistic however, it can change the way a director intended for a scene to be shown. Also, I know some people that really hate anti-judding. As I said earlier, I like it. I’m not sure if this can be avoided if you don’t use any of the 3 picture modes but plan to test that soon.

    This was kind of an inpulse purchase. I was planning to buy a 42″ LCD that matched most of these specs. However, I walked into the store just to see what they had and do some research or see what they had as an open-box deal. This TV’s picture stood out among the others and looked better than many TV that were more expensive and would be considered nicer. Obviously, the LED TVs blew this away but that’s a given. I’m pretty happy but I do have a little buyers remorse due to the blurring. However, for your average joe that’s just gonna throw this up on a wall, that may not be a concern. As a long-time Samsung fan, a small part of me wishes that I just held out and picked one of those.

    I think the price-point makes this an over-all good purchase. That’s essentially what drove me to make the impulse buy in the first place. I do have to admit though, I feel like the old saying, “you get what you pay for” applies with this TV….and that isnt such a bad thing.

    This LG product is a snap to set up; no configuration necessary. Once set up, you can adjust everything and anything with their super simple menus. The picture is perfect, especially with Blue Ray application. The up conversion from DVDs – to – regular TV reception is also extremely good. The sound is great (for TV speakers) – much better than my old Sony. This is also a new product from LG, so I was a bit hesitant to purchase without seeing any reviews. We were orginally going to buy a Samsung – but with all the benefits compared, this was a great buy! I would recommend the LG 42LH40 to anyone! Everyone who has seen this TV has complimented on its style and great picture!

    This is a spectacular TV.

    As my first HDTV purchase, I did a lot of research going in. Plasmas are a bit cheaper, but due to concerns about burn-in (as I’m using the set with a Home Theater PC, which has a number of static elements that are often on-screen) I decided I wanted to go with an LCD panel. Then came the questions of brand, size, and features. LG is very well-reviewed, looked great in the store, and has a better reputation than, say, Phillips or Vizio. (This is not to say all the panels from the latter manufacturers seemed poor, but they definitely appear to use cheaper components.) 42″ is a great middle-high size point, not so huge that it won’t fit in a smallish apartment like mine, yet big enough to really feel sizable. And, as for features, this really has most of the bells and whistles one could ever want, including 120Hz playback for Blu-ray content.

    The TV has a nice smattering of inputs–I have it hooked up via HDMI to my HTPC–and looks great. It has a very subdued aesthetic, with a glossy bezel (that, yes, will attract fingerprints, but wipes off easily with the included cleaning cloth) and a fairly unobtrusive idle/power light. The on-screen display is very well thought out and easy to navigate, with coherent groupings of the various settings, and quick access to some of the more commonly accessed on a special “Quick Menu”. The built-in sound is good for a TV, but they’re still built-in speakers, so don’t expect anything mind-blowing here (or on any TV, really).

    And, lastly, it looks great. It has a wonderful built-in calibration program that really has resulted in a very balanced picture. It also has good energy saving and brightness features, easily accessible via a dedicated button the remote, so you can drop down the brightness to 25 or 50% if it’s too bright. It also has an auto-sensing feature for brightness (much like the feature seen on Apple laptop displays), though I found I tend to prefer it a little brighter than the auto-sensing feature would dictate.

    All in all, an easy five stars. Highly recommended, especially given the 120Hz proofs you for the future. And, as an aside, don’t waste money on a 240Hz TV. You’ve already got 5:5 pulldown with Blu-ray (24p, which divides into 120Hz evenly but not into the usual 60Hz). It took a while for me to be sold on 120Hz as a worthwhile factor in making my purchasing decision, but 240Hz really is more of a marketing ploy than anything.
