Excellent HD TV
Best picture I've ever seen on an HD TV. The full 1080P is amazing. Depth of color and lifelike picture adds a whole new dimension to TV viewing. Easy to set up right out of the box and able to enjoy it the same day it was delivered.

LG 42 made it 5 years
Great looking panel, fantastic picture, but a year into my buy it pixelated to a blue hue and 2 years later it petered out. This 42 was supposed to make it 10 years, but I guess I watched too much football.

A really fine picture. With 240 Hz...all the games look sosmooth...and no flicker. LG puts out a good looking Product. The only downside is the amount of glare on the screen......but....That can be fixed if you dont have open windows.Great sound...and great picture. Bought this for my son....he's a tech head...and he loves it.
Had TV for at least A year and I love It. Good picture and sound. Would buy LG again.
I have had my 42SL80 for a year and a half now. Before I bought it, I looked at all the brands and the LG was just superb in picture quality and vivid picture. I had it set up and adjusted in 15 minutes right out of the box. The picture is just perfect like It was new. Since then I bought a 26in LG lcd for the kitchen. As far as I'm concerned, LG has the best tv and picture. It is the only tv I will consider to own.
[...] in great shape. It was easy to set up, and the picture quality out of the box is great. The sound that comes out of this TV is good, with several variables for sound and picture. This is our first HDTV. We haven't bought a blu-ray player as of yet, but I can't wait to watch some movies on this unit. Great looking TV, and I've had no issues with the glare that others have mentioned. The only thing I don't like about it is some of the standard definition channels aren't as sharp as they could be.
We originally purchased the 47 inch SL80 and liked it so much we purchased the 42 inch model for a bedroom. We love the styling of the TV, the picture and sound quality are wonderful! We've had the 47 inch SL 80 for about a year now and the 42 inch model for over a month and we have no complaints as of yet. I have read some comments on the increased glare from the glass front of this model, but, I haven't had any problems with glare, even in a bright living. I would definitely recommend this TV [...]
My wife and I are VERY, VERY HAPPY with our purchase. We love the picture, watching sports is GREAT. We use the swivel base, and the TV has a good sound! I did the hook up myself.
Picture is great and we don't have even HD cable yet.
I absolutely love this TV. Have had it for a few weeks now and the picture quality is amazing. I can't believe this model was discontinued, I hope they come out with another version so I can buy a larger one for the living room.
Our first big screen and it ROCKS! I was worried about fine tuning but the LG makes it easy to optimize your picture. It sound great right out of the box so I can hold off on the surround sound. Plus we got a great deal.
I bought this TV after doing months of research. My plan was to purchase another brand until I came across this set. In addition I was going to buy a 40" based on the size of my room. Since this TV isn't framed with the big shiny frame but has about a 1" "seamless" frame the measurements were very close to the 40" set. The picture is awesome and I haven't even hooked it up to HD yet. Currently I am running it off of a DVR plus, and it works fine until my HD equipment arrives. For now I am happy with the standard satelite hook up. I bought my set on sale on a day when I went to pick up the other brand. They both had the same features except my LG has 240Hz while the other set had 120Hz. Aside from that, both of them have the same features. In my opinion this TV has a LOT OF BANG for your buck!
