Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic pictue quality. My boys play all sorts of games consoles on it and no problems for them to set up and play.
Compatible with their music and movies.
Great purchase at great price. So much better than my LCD. The black colours on the screen are more blacker that my LCD. Its not a problem but you do notice it. LG says its a "seamless technology", have no idea what that is supposed to mean, as it does have a black edge around it! with th eLCD you have to be carefull not to touch the screen for fear of damaging the crystals. The led has a glass shield that does not matter if little fingers (or big ones) touch it.
Bad points:
The screen reflects light from the window. My LCD didn't. Have been told can get a screen that sticks over the front to stop this, but have not looked or enquired to see it that true.

Good points:
l very good picture good sound that's why I purchased it,However for a TV of this quality I was supprised that there is no camera SD or similar slot only USB's. Love the HDMI slot and have a 3 mtr cable to slot into the laptop this enables us to use Skype on the big screen. well done LG.
Bad points:
No camera SD or similar slot which is a minor point.

Manufacturer's Description

42" LED TV With single layer Seamless design, 4 HDMI, Bluetooth, USB connectivity and energy saving recommended certification
A whole new type of TV – Experience the feeling of frameless design of the SL9500 series with LED technology. Producing higher contrast ratios, ultra thin designs and Energy Saving Recommended certification. The SL9500 series provides a cutting edge viewing experience

Frameless Design
With LG frameless design, prepare yourself for a whole new viewing experience. Unlike conventional TVs, LG unique single layer design virtually eliminates the space between the screen and the bezel so that they seamlessly blend together. Your LG frameless TV will look stunning – whether it’s switched on or off.

Intelligent Sensor
Intelligent Sensor automatically controls the brightness and colour of your TV picture, responding to the lighting in your room to reduce energy wastage.

Bluetooth
Bluetooth technology means a world without wires, where you can instantly view images or documents on your TV. With this technology, you can also connect to mobiles, headsets, notebooks and PCs for a totally synchronised home entertainment experience.

LED
LG LED TVs produce a sharper, more detailed picture with a superior contrast as well as an ultra slim design compared to LCD TVs. LED TVs have tiny lights either around the edge of the TV (known as Edge LED) or directly behind the TV (known as Full LED). This model has LED lights around the edge of the TV frame giving you an ultra slim TV that is perfect for wall mounting. LG LED TVs are also more energy efficient so you will save 40% of power consumption compared to LCD TVs saving you up to £100 per year

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.
