This was the first LG television I had bought and based my decision on other positive reviews. In my opinion, it represents excellent value for money, having a very good, sharp picture on HD channels and via DVD input. Sound quality is good, although I tend to listen to films, music etc. through a hi-fi amplifier with the tv sound muted. The only slight negative is the lack of an input for connecting a p.c. but, at the price and given the overall quality of the unit, this is a minor quibble.
