Avoid this piece of s**t tv


Great picture

Very, very short life and expensive - never again LG

Consumer review by:

Constant problems in 2 years!


I purchased this unit in Dec 04 from Best Buy. Who, by the way, I will never deal with again. To this date, I have replaced 2 lamps, a ballast, a light engine and test and am waiting for the repair people as I write this to come and repair the color. ...

It has a big picture. Easy menu and remote.

Constant electrical break downs. Poor customer service from seller. Mediocre picture.

Don't even bother with this TV


I bought this TV just over a year ago. My first initial pick was a Samsung DLP but due to their limited stock at the time, I settled for the LG. Right from the start I could notice absolutely no difference between high def and regular broadcasts....

Slim design

Poor high def performance, Severe Pincushion effect, Purplish artifacts when watching dark scenes,
