f, London Film and documentary lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Large screen, good image. Very easy to use menu. 3 HDMI connections.
Bad points:
Difficult to swivel on base (the base moves, too). LG requires the base to be secured with a small screw.
Does not play DIVX from a USB connected HDD out of the box (but will do if you hunt on the net for the solution).

michael, Kirkcaldy Sports and games fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good Picture, better when running in HD 100Mhz normal digital runs at 50Mhz. Brilliant sound and easy setup menu's also the bonus of a WiFi connection.
Bad points:
The wall mount bracket that we purchased with t.v had a spirit level fitted, please use your own as it gives a false reading.

Confirmed purchaser Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I did a lot of research and shopping around before opting for this T.V. For the price it was excellent value for money and stood out from the competition. The T.V. was simple to set up, looks good and the menus are easy to use. The quality of the picture is so good it took me a while to get used to it!! If you still want your films to look like they do in the cinema (rahter and having super clarity!!), there is a really easy 'cinema' setting which does the trick.
Bad points:
none - other than the full instructions are on a disc rather than in a booklet. Which was annoying.

Manufacturer's Description

42" HD 1080p LCD TV with 100Hz, 3 x HDMI and USB connectivity
The LG LD550 LCD TV series provides Full HD 1080p picture quality with TruMotion 100Hz and built in freeview with great connectivity including 3 HDMI and a USB connection for playback of your favourite pictures and videos.

HD-Ready 1080p
LG HD Ready 1080p (Full HD) provides 1920 × 1080p picture resolution delivering incredible picture clarity and vibrant colours. You’ll see up to 5 times the picture clarity and detail in comparison to standard definition and double the detail compared to HD Ready 720p. 1080p television is the only way to fully experience the true potential of high definition gaming and blu-ray which takes you even closer to the action.

100Hz TruMotion
TruMotion one hundred hertz reduces blurring on fast moving scenes by displaying one hundred images per second. Standard TV sets only display fifty images per second so more information means a better viewing experience for watching sports and movies.

Freeview
All LG TVs come with built-in Digital Freeview making sure you’re ready for the digital switch-over. With LG TVs you’ll have access to over 40 Freeview TV and radio channels, 8 day on-screen guide and access to digital interactive services.

3 HDMI Inputs
Connect your games console, blu-ray player or home cinema system through the 3 H-D-M-I ports for a true High Definition multimedia experience.

USB Input
Connect your digital camera, M-P-3 player or flash memory using the U-S-B port to show off your latest holiday snaps, music collection or High Definition DivX movies for a true multimedia experience.
