5.0 out of 5 stars Just about perfect for me!, April 21, 2014
This review is from: LG Electronics 42LB6300 42-Inch 1080p 120Hz Smart LED TV (Electronics)
The picture quality is really excellent. The IPS panel makes for great off center viewing. Color and picture definition are great and black levels are decent.

Harmony recently added the 42LB6300 to their device database. It means I can control basic functions like on/off and input selection using my Harmony remote. So far I have to use the Magic Remote for the Smart TV functions, which is something I can live with. I use an Apple TV and the apps on the TV were a secondary concern to me.

After reading some other comments, most surprising to me was the response to my NetFlix offer redemption. I got my activation code within 24 hours, applied it to my existing NetFlix account and got a $95.88 credit. It seems like LG had a problem with this initially but may have gotten it resolved.

How's the contrast on the tv, being an ips panel known for mediocre contrast(unless using led local dimming) and light black levels

To me it seems OK, but I am comparing to a 6 year old VIZIO. I think the fact that it is back lit and not edge lit may help.

My boyfriend got the same samsung tv and went mad over it. He's a FIFA and COD addict and has three TVs setup along with full-rotating mounts from this brand called FlexiMounts. It's pretty cool the way he can move them around. And not too overpriced either, so a pretty decent buy.

My friend just LOVED this samsung tv. She's one of those HD-only freaks, and she adored the picture quality. I am planning to purchase one for my son. How does the TV work with an XBox? I also read somewhere about a lot of TV related accidents with children, so I plan to mount it on the wall. The brand I considered was FlexiMounts. It has a lot of choices to decide from.
