            Comments about LG Electronics 42" LN5400 Full HD 1080p LED TV:

            I purchased the LG TV for my partner for Christmas for her home. The set up was to be simple - a home theater system, the TV and a cable box. LG does not provide the wiring/connection diagram for this common installation. When I called them they said it was not available.

            After figuring it out on my own, the TV did not work at all. The only bright side was LG had a local service person come to the home and replaced one of the 2 circuit boards in the set in a prompt and efficient manner. The great service for the repair is why I give it 2 stars rather than 1 star.

                  This has a great picture in high def and Games. Not the best sound but its tv speakers. Note that is lacking some inputs with a shared composite AV connector. The standard def cable images are not the best. Good unit for the kids in rec room
