4.0 out of 5 stars I love this TV, trouble with PC connect, July 25, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: LG 42CS570 42-Inch 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV (2012 Model) (Electronics)
So far, this is probably one of the best Tv's I've ever purchased. I bought a 32" LG about 2 years ago and loved it. However, I went abroad soon after for about a year so I left it to my parents. When I got back they were not willing to give it up. I started doing some research and purchased this TV about a month ago. I decided to upgrade to a 42" but stick with the LG brand since I liked my 32" so much. My first reaction was this thing is HUGE but after staring at a 20" TV for almost 6 months that is probably a normal response.

Picture:

Picture quality is great on this TV, the colors are excellent and I really like the no blur motion. At first it through me off, after so many years of watching TV and having moving objects blur across the screen. I like to watch a lot of action movies so this was definitely a cool feature that made everything seem more real. Also great for video gaming since there is a lot of motion with the characters while playing.

Menus and settings:

Menus and setting adjusting is easy to use. There is a very detailed picture adjustment function that lets you set all the colors to your liking. It is fairly easy to switch back and forth between component, HDMI and cable which is not always the case with TVs.

Connecting ports:

One of the biggest things for me is that there is a PC connection since I like to connect my computer to the TV. While looking for TV I noticed that many of the lower end models no longer have this feature. I was annoyed when my DVI to VGA cable would not work with this TV. Although I was able to find a HDMI to DVI on amazon for cheap it was an added aggravation and expense.

Price:

Budget was an issue for me but I was not willing to sacrifice quality. That is where I think this TV is great. Trying to find a reliable brand with solid 1080P picture quality, 120 HZ for a good price is not easy.

Overall:

I am reluctant to give this TV 5 stars due to the hassle with the HDMI cable however this TV delivers on all fronts (plus the cool no blur.) I highly recommend it and I definitely will not be lending it to my parents any time soon.

Trent,

You do realize that Amazon combines all the reviews for the same MODEL into one thread, regardless of what size the review is for?

I'm sorry but it's hard for my to sympathize with your aggravation. You wanted to use a TV which does not have the same inputs as your computer's monitor outputs. You shouldn't have bought the TV, then. Adapted connectors don't always work as intended because they try to approximate different graphics standards. I'd be interested if there were any problems connecting a computer's HDMI out to the TV's HDMI in, or VGA out to VGA in. Bugs with adapters, though, are just not worth mentioning.

You are far better off having been forced into the HDMI cable connection. It is digital. VGA is analog and is less sharp and it's harder to get level correct. HDMI cables only cost like $6 bucks at momoprice.

Hi do you need to use Game Mode? And if you do not use it is there any lag? I would prefer not to use the Game Mode option since I like to use Netflix and watch movies straight from my xbox. Thanks
