LG 42LN5400

 

This entry-level LG is simple and straightforward, but its picture quality is not getting any praise.

Consumer review by:

Take it from a gamer...

 

Good TV for the price - you're paying for the hardware specs and not the erroneous features.

Comes with all of the features you'd expect in a top of the line TV but without the bells and whistles. 120hz refresh rate is awesome for watching movies but you won't notice it while gaming unless you have a video card that can render that many...

Not a deal breaker: only two HDMI inputs... This is fine for me because I am only using a single input: My computer

Great picture, but...

 

Great picture, great price

Weak, weak sound. You can tweak it a bit in options, but still very weak compared to the Toshiba it is replacing
