4 out of 5 eggsGreat TV for the price

Pros: Great picture, light and just simply looks great. Menu is a breeze to use and has many options. Plenty of connections on the back.

Cons: Doesn't have Wifi like a lot of TVs do now. Not a problem for me since I use my PS3 as a media center on this TV. Have a random issue with the optical audio out to a sound bar ( I run HDMI from PS3 to TV then sound out of TV to soundbar). Not sure if it's the TV or the bars issue but sometimes have to reset the soundbar to bring sound back on. Never happens during play, just sometimes after turning on my system.

Other Thoughts: My wife and I were looking for a new TV and his one stood out. We've very happy with it after almost a year of use. It's never been hooked up to cable or any provider service. We use the PS3 and Wii for Netflix and Hulu plus as well as games. I also stream from my PC.

5 out of 5 eggsNice TV

Pros: Easy set up, user friendly,crisp picture. Quality brand at an affordable price. After a lot of shopping around Newegg had the best deal. Living in a rural area it was a bonus with free shipping not having to spend $$ on gas driving 50 miles to the nearest electronics store.

Cons: A bit of a concern that the shipping box arrived with two distinct boot prints on it. Where or when somebody decided to walk across the box, who knows, but it didn't seem to affect the contents,thankfully! A word to the wise, check your shipment CAREFULLY before accepting delivery. I know we will next time.

Other Thoughts: Noticed that this model sold out shortly after placing my order, I'm so glad I didn't procastinate on buying it or I would have surely missed the boat!

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent television

Pros: Easy set up. Lightweight. Outstanding picture quality.

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: This is our first HDTV and I have to say I'm incredibly happy with the purchase -- and glad that I waited until quality LEDs got into the $600 range. Picture quality is excellent -- we had no ghosting or trailing while watching golf this weekend. I was concerned about the 60Hz (vs 120 or 240) until I read several articles online that you generally can't tell. Honestly, I can't tell, even with sports. Speakers are decent. Overall, it's an excellent unit at a good price.

1 out of 5 eggsunhappy

Pros: newegg is very good, LG service SUCKS!!! i have had this 42"LV3500 since 7-10-2011 was very nice. untill one day it started making a noise. hard to expain without just hearing it. but i'll try it's a growling or vibrating that comes from behind not from speakers. it lasts from a second to 10 seconds. it happens a few minutes after you turn it on or 8 hours later. i had it on 8 hours it mades noise 6 times. then it might not make noise for a day or two.

Cons: LG service SUCKS!!! had a service center work they told me they replaced everything in that could go wrong. that before christmas 2011. that did not fix problem. talked to serviceman he told me there was something wrong with my house. i have just had a DVD player hooked to it it still does it. talked to LG they said service just replaced power supply lairs. just getting run around. i was told by LG to take it to different service center that was 1-26-2012. contacted LG they say part on back order.
not happy called service won't get it back until 2-12-2012 that will make it over a month without a TV that i've only had for 7 months.

Other Thoughts: wish it would have happened so newegg would have delt with it i have no problem with newegg returns before they are very good. but LG service SUCKS!!! oh yea did i mention LG service SUCKS!!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat TV for the price

Pros: Great picture and looks good from any angle. There is a variety of options for viewing different types of material that are easy to select. Menus as a whole are well designed.

Cons: Sound is marginal but what do you expect out of a flat screen TV. You can always put the audio feed into your sound system when watching something where it matters.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Deal!

Pros: Great Picture! I have been viewing an LCD TV with a backlight for years now(it didn't even have HDMI inputs), decided to upgrade..WHAT AN UPGRADE! The picture is perfect. From my last LCD TV (which was a no name that I got for a deal @ $600- 37"- years ago), this thing is vivid. The heat it gives off is very low. Very thin and not heavy. Many inputs (but could use a few more HDMIs). Easy to setup. Again, beautiful picture!

Cons: The only con I have for this is the power cord. It is not connected on the TV by a regular three prong power cord that you can remove, that comes with most LCD TVs, but something that looks like a part you may have to order from LG. If I am wrong here, correct me. I do not know about power cord standards for LCD TVs...

Other Thoughts: All in all, so far seems like a great buy. I work for a place that sells electronics and appliances. I was told our company could not buy this unit for less than what I bought it from Newegg...WOW! And yes we have some buying power (30 locations and growing!)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat TV

Pros: Looks great, watching movies in 1080p is just amazing.

Cons: Speakers really are kinda bad, but using seperat speakers takes care of that.
Doesn't double as a heater like my old tv?

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -Beautiful Picture
-Plenty of ports
-Awesome touch buttons that actually work (unlike my Acer monitor)
-Price
-Thin!

Cons: -The TV is only 60Hz, although I really cant tell any kind of a difference.
-Speakers are average for a TV. Not a 5.1 surround system, but does the job fine unlike others here make it out to be.
-Screen is unevenly back lit in the corners, although only noticeable on a completely black screen.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a 32" Samsung 720p LCD. Its a fantastic set that has a awesome picture.

1 out of 5 eggsUncharacteristically Bad Service from Newegg

Pros: It finally shipped!

Cons: I ordered this TV on a Sunday. I received notification via email that the label was printed the following Friday afternoon, the same day that I SHOULD have received this TV. My wife is pregnant and being induced next week. We will likely be at the hospital for a few days. Now I have to monitor UPS tracking information in order to try to coordinate a neighbor or someone to sign for the TV, which I will not be able to inspect myself now.

I used the same exact form of payment that I've been using on my newegg account for almost 2 years. The order status said "Charged" Monday evening (the day after I ordered). The phone rep told me that my order was "Pending Verification" up until Thursday. However, my bank account shows the charge was drawn, not held, but drawn on Monday.

I was offered a small token for the trouble, but it will be a moot point if I can't have someone sign for the TV and it gets sent back...

I'm really disappointed in Newegg. I'm used to much better service than t
