LG 42LB730V

 

Easy to use and apps are great!

Seems to be a delay in pushing the channel number on the remote and it coming up on screen, which leads to us entering the wrong number quite often.

LG 42LB730V

 

Best looking TV out there. Great picture on HD. Smart remote is easy for basic operations. Good sound for LED TV.

Scart and component inputs are within the wall mount hole profile so any bracket needs to be sonsidered carefully or a big set of spacers is needed. Software is slow especially if using SmartLink.
