Size Name: 26-Inch
With prices for LCD TV's falling rapidly, i decided it was time to
replace my 5 year old 20" Sharp EDTV and step up to HD. A side by side
comparison made it clear that i had made the right decision. The LG's
picture quality is superior in almost every way.

Pro's
-----
-There aren't many quality 26" tv's out there and the 26LV2500 is one of
the better ones i've seen so far.

-The picture is vibrant and sharp and comparable to some mid-range
32" non led-backlit lcd's i looked at in store. Response time looks
good to my eyes.

-Most 26" tv's include 2 hdmi ports, the LG has 3.

-The LG is attractive with its glass-like bezel.Thin and bright, thanks to
the LED backlight.

-The Intelligent Sensor works rather well and is surprisingly
useful.

-Menu system very well laid out with useful functionality.

Con's
-----
-Off angle viewing is pretty bad. Colors wash out slightly when i stand up
and noticeably when moving to the sides of the screen. My old Sharp LCD was
actually a lot better in this regard.

-The Sharp used a matte screen, the LG has a glossy screen and in a bright
room the image is mirror-like, particularly in dark scenes. Very annoying.

-Audio quality is as bad as expected and comparable to other TV's this
small and thin. Turning the bass all the way up and the treble nearly all
the way down makes things bearable.

-Black levels and screen uniformity is as expected for a tv in this range
with some backlight bleeding in the edges. This of course is only
noticeable in a black screen with the backlight set to max and will not
matter under normal usage conditions.

Size Name: 26-Inch Verified Purchase
I was looking for a small LCD TV for our guest bedroom and decided on the LG 26LV2500. This seemed to offer the most features at the lowest price for the use it would get--only when we had guests in our spare bedroom. The set arrived very promptly in the mfg. original packaging and there was no damage to the carton and everything was there. It was easy to assemble and set up. Since I was using a basic cable connection(no box) I needed only the coax connection. The set scanned for and found all my cable provider's digital channels, both HD and SD(There are no more analog transmisions in my area). The picture is bright and clear(at least when viewed from bed) and although "only" 720p it looks as good(to me)as the two large 1080p sets that I already have. The sound is certainly fine for the use it will get. All the settings are easy to access and adjust and there are many more inputs than I will need on this set. I did resurrect an very old(non blueray) DVD player and connected it using the composite input--it produced a nice picture with standard DVD's. The only thing I found a bit strange was the power brick. Instead of the set getting power directly from from a 120V outlet, you plug a power brick into the outlet, which has a cord that plugs into the TV. I assume this is used because it is cheaper and/or easier that trying to design a 120V to 24V power supply that will fit into this very thin TV. So overall I am pleased.

Size Name: 32-Inch Verified Purchase
I am, by no means a huge HD fanatic, and I don't get anal about black levels or minor flaws (really how could you at this price;) but I know when something is pleasing to my eyes and this TV is it, to say the least. Playing the PS3 or watching Breaking Bad is an experience words cannot describe, but I'll give it a shot. black levels are deep, colors are vivid (really vivid,) you can have it as bright ass you want without the strain on your eyes, and all for less than $400. Sound quality from the unit is extremely poor I have to admit (staticy bass just one example,) but the tv is as thick as a penny (not a figure of speech.) just get some computer speakers with a sub-woofer, you'll be fine. I have only used the HDMI and USB ports so I can't touch on RCA input quality. no real complaints except for an somewhat noticeable dead pixel or something in the top right hand corner of the screen ( It is only noticed on a pure white screen, I could care less.)

Size Name: 26-Inch Verified Purchase
After a few days of research, I purchased the LG 26V2500 for my home office to replace a TV system cobbled together to make due over the last few years. I got my money's worth from the Hauppauge WinTV 950Q tuner and had been using an old 17" LCD monitor for the TV display with a travel speaker bar for audio, all attached to my 64-bit Dell computer on Windows 7. It worked good enough but was a hog on processing speed even with a quad core processor.

I also considered the Samsung LN26D450, another highly rated LCD TV. However, the LG had two features not offered on Samsung's TV - a coaxial input connection with an integrated ATSC/NTSC/Clear QAM digital tuner (in addition to an analog NTSC tuner). This will allow me to receive over air DTV signals now and perhaps use the TV for digital cable sometime in the future, should the occasion arise. The LG has backlighting LED not found in the Samsung, which I do like ( I have a larger Samsung that also has backlighting). Both TVs were 720p resolution - 1080p isn't worth the extra cost at this screen size. The cnet.com site doesn't recommend LED as a desirable feature but I do like it. As the LG had a lower price, it sealed the deal for me.

Ordering was quick and the shipment arrived three days later with no issues. I was surprised the TV was shipped in only its original retail packaging. Some tape was showing the wear and tear from shipment with some separation from the box packaging. I'd recommend Amazon reinforce the tape if this is a standard practice. Nothing was broken or missing - no harm, no foul. Assembly was quick - four small screws were provided to install the two-piece base to the TV body and then it was ready for hookup.
