      Comments about LG Electronics 42CS560 42" LCD TV:

      I purchased this TV after buying the 37" model for my mother and I really liked the picture and the price. But the picture on the 42" model I purchased just does not have the same level of crispness or clarity. It is VERY easy to assemble and to connect to cable, DVD player, etc. The volume is great...plenty of sound. But the picture (especially sports, like basketball) remains fuzzy even after I heighten the sharpness controls to 100%.

            This is my second 42 LG... Good vibrant picture for the cost. Improved interface over the older one...decent speakers..and acceptable refresh for my taste. Models costing twice as much...are not that much better in my opinion. Good service again from B&H.

            Comments about LG Electronics 42CS560 42" LCD TV:

            I purchased the LG 43" LCD flat screen TV, model number 42CS560 about two weeks ago and am thoroughly enjoying watching TV and DVDs on it every day. The picture is outstanding, with various adjustments for picture quality. I'm very pleased with the sound; it's got powerful speakers, so the sound comes through crisply and it's easy to adjust the volume -- it gets as loud as anyone would ever want it -- and the whole viewing experience is just what I expected. It comes rerady to stream Netflix and others, but we haven't set that up yet. LG features something called "SIMPLINK," which supposedly allows you to connect other LG electronics and use just one remote for all, like the Blu-Ray player I bought with it, but we're having problems getting that set up correctly and working the remote is a difficult task. If I can't figure it out soon, I'll have to reach out to LG technical support to see if they can walk me through it. Otherwise, it's a terrific set I hope to enjoy for many years.

            Comments about LG Electronics 42CS560 42" LCD TV:

            The picture quality on this TV is exceptional considering this is suppose to be a lower to mid-level television. The sound and connection options were the only draw backs; only 2 HDMI, 1 Component, and 1 USB and the sound was horrible you really need to play around with it/ have a surround sound system. Also, there is no audio out which made it a little more difficult to wire the tv to my surround sound system but I bought an audio optical cable and connected it from the surround sound system to my comcast HD box so it wouldn't really be a big deal unless you didn't have the audio optical cable option. Overall it's a great TV and it has awesome picutre quality. Only downside is the connection options and sound quality of the speakers but i would still highly recommend.
