Size Name: 42-inch
I was initially skeptical about purchasing this TV from Sam's Club because they were only selling 9 of them - and not removing any from the boxes to display. In other words, I bought this TV on blind faith and the strong recommendation from the store associate. And I'm extremely glad I took his advice.

The picture on this TV is brilliant in High Def. It's very bright, crystal clear, and truly beautiful. It literally has the best picture of any TV I shopped for, including the Sony's and Samsung's. My grandfather watched the NCAA basketball tournament with me last year and during every commercial he would remark, "LG: Life's Good" because we were enjoying ourselves so much watching the games on the TV (with a Bose 321 home theater system attached). Even several months later, I still love watching HD football and NASCAR races on it. It just doesn't get any better with the superb LED-LCD picture quality.

Lately I have been getting a lot of use out of the USB input slots, too. I've started recording a lot of HD videos with new Flip Mino and Kodak Zi10 HD cameras over the past month and both of those cameras have a USB output on them. Well, all I have to do is plug them directly into the side of this TV and my newly recorded videos automatically start playing in HD. No more burning DVDs or complicated transferring of media from one device to the other. This TV is simply plug and play.

Switching between inputs is easy, even with the universal cable remote that I use with the TV. I have 2 HDMI cables, standard coax, standard video, and fiber optic audio cables all plugged in and had no problems with setup or use.

The TV is surprising flat and lightweight too.

The bottom line is that this is the best TV of any of my friends and family.

I couldn't be more satisfied with the features of this TV alongside with its price tag. First off, I am truly surprised how few reviews there are on this model in comparison to the LG42LV5500. I did my homework before buying a new set, and both of these models are exactly the same. The only difference is the lv5500 has a magic remote. But this tv comes with the magic remote "feature", meaning you can always buy the remote in the future at around $70.

I consider this LG unbeatable with all that it offers. The picture is flawless, brilliant in colors, contrast and detail. I feel no motion lag as with some 60hz models. And am truly grateful to have the 120hz. It has a decent amount of user manual settings including colors and pic modes, but not overwhelming and simple enough for the ordinary ind.. The Trumotion feature is not to my liking, as it makes the picture look like some soap opera, taking away from that "cinema feel". So that is up to ones personal liking, but I simply turn it off. The amount of inputs in the back is staggering, and that is one thing I researched before buying. I needed to hook up anything and everything I would ever need in the future, and this model does not dissappoint. 4 hdmi's, 2 usb's, ethernet and wireless, 2 rgbs, components, optical,comp monitor, etc. I have my playstation, internet and hd antenna hooked up and all work with true precision and quality. The home menu is friendly and appealing. More than average apps online. The streaming does not work "great" but it is "good" I would say it would be more fun to use the internet and streaming apps with the magic remote, that is the only place where it can really play a positive effect. But the browser on this thing is lagging in speed. So don't expect to be surfing at lightning speed.

Size Name: 42-inch Verified Purchase
I hate to be the first person to give this TV a less than perfect score, but the local dimming effect on a mostly black screen is dramatically distracting; I'm surprised that it hasn't been mentioned in other reviews. (It has been on the LV5500 as "backlight bleed") FWIW, this unit has an IPS panel.

When white text is shown against a black screen, the backlighting goes wild in a horizontal band across the screen. I also have the magic motion remote and the cursor causes the same effect: as the cursor moves, there is a bright halo that surrounds it everywhere is goes. It's distracting to the point that I'm considering returning this unit. And that's too bad because the picture quality is really outstanding otherwise. The colors are natural and lifelike.

I was aware of the potential drawbacks of local dimming, but I didn't expect it to be so noticeable.

Also, the web browser has frozen twice in less than a week. The only fix is to shut off the TV.

Here's what televisioninfo.com says about the identical LV5500:

"Note that the LG 42LV5500 has an LED backlighting that allows for local dimming. In essence, the LEDs are arranged in zones and the brightness of each zone can be controlled according to the content on the screen. Ideally, this means that the mouth of a black cave will remain deep black, while the surrounding snowy hills of the Arctic will be as bright as the screen can produce.

Unfortunately, there do not appear to be enough zones on the LG 42LV5500 to create the proper effect. On a dark screen, the smallest bit of white content (text, for instance) sends the backlight in that zone skyrocketing. It's distracting and there's no way to disable it."

UPDATE 11/26/11:
I'm keeping this TV and upgrading my rating.
