Good points:
Fantastic picture and sound. The built in TV guide is awesome and the automatic tuning make it so easy to set up. This is a great TV and I would recommend it to anyone
Bad points:
Although not really a bad point the tv can really show when poor quality film has been used. For example, older programs and films from some years ago really show up as poor quality on this TV

TV Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

HD-Ready
High-definition television, or HDTV, is a new standard of TV with better-quality picture and sound than normal TV , the sort of standard you would see at a cinema. HDTV brings you closer to the action, offering more colours and a higher resolution picture (twice as many horizontal lines). This can make HDTV images clearer, sharper, more detailed and very life-like.

1,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
With a top-class contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1, this LG HDTV provides vivid images, even in a bright environment, eliminating optical glare and minimising light reflection.

Clear Voice
Sometimes, when watching movies, dialogue gets lost in the background due to the down-mixing that occurs when your TV pushes 5.1 Surround Sound through the TV’s 2-channel speaker system. LG Clear Voice Technology alters the sound balance to emphasize human voices and reduce background noise.

Freeview
Freeview is a subscription-free service that delivers up to 48 digital TV channels, including ITV2, E4, BBC3, and Film4-plus 24 digital radio stations, with no contract and no satellite dish.

HDMI 1.3 Deep Color / 3xHDMI
HDMI 1.3 supports 30-bit, 36-bit, and 48-bit colour depth. HDMI 1.3 eliminates on-screen colour banding for smooth tonal transitions and subtle gradations. It also enables increased contrast ratio, and represents many times more shades of grey between black and white.

Invisible Speaker
LG’s Invisible Speaker System has been fine-tuned by world-renowned audio expert Mark Levinson for an increased sweet spot. Breaking through the fixed idea that speaker grills must be exposed, this system provides a fully realized sweet spot, and powerful, realistic sound with speakers integrated into the panel design.
