I must preface my review by saying I didn't buy the LG 450 online, I bought it at a big box store because they had a better price:
I wanted an inexpensive TV for the bedroom and the LG 450 is a good choice, the picture quality is very good for it's price. I didn't need 120Hz so I saved $150 by buying the 60Hz model. All LG TV's have Expert ISF Settings so you...
I received my TV today.. but there wasn't a TV stand in the box. I can't connect my TV to the TV base.
Did your 450 come with a stand? It is not shown under the list of "items included", but I assume this should be included correct?
Please let me know if i'm wrong. If I am I would try to contact LG... except that right now, their phones are...
I must preface my review by saying I didn't buy the LG 450 online, I bought it at a big box store because they had a better price:
I wanted an inexpensive TV for the bedroom and the LG 450 is a good choice, the picture quality is very good for it's price. I didn't need 120Hz so I saved $150 by buying the 60Hz model. All LG TV's have Expert ISF Settings so you can have it professionally calibrated or do it yourself, it even has a built-in blue filter. The ATSC tuner is very powerful because I get all the local stations OTA with an indoor antenna. This model is not internet enabled so you need a set top box to get Netflix, etc. A word of caution though: when I got it home and calibrated the picture it still didn't look great, it takes about 12 hours of viewing for the display to "break-in". After watching the TV for a few days now the picture has improved dramatically. As with all TV's the sound isn't great but it does have bass and treble controls. The USB port supports: JPG, MP3, MPG, WMV, MP4. The manual states other video formats are supported but they wouldn't work on my TV.
I and most experts recommend these basic settings(YMMV):
1. Turn off Dynamic Contrast.
2. Turn off Auto Energy Saving.
3. Turn on Cinema Mode, if your Blu-ray player supports 24p then turn that on as well.
4. Select Just Scan.
I've been watching HD TV and movies from the LCD monitor on my computer for the last few years because I vowed I would not spend more than $500 for a boob tube, but now I've finally found something that I would be happy with for $499. This LG is a very basic, no-frills TV, but it's all that I need in a TV. The features are very base level and the specs on the contrast may make it seem like it has a phenomenal picture but it's really just average for this price range, which is to say that it's perfectly adequate. It's basically what you would expect from an IPS panel. You can move around the room and the image is perfectly viewable no matter where you sit. The backlight is adequate and turned all the way up is not glaring.
One of the first things you'll notice is that the power "button" is not a button, but a touch-sensitive area that requires no effort to turn on. That's nice because the TV is so light that pressing a conventional button on this TV would probably move it around a tiny bit. The TV takes a few seconds before you see an image but that's quite tolerable. Changing channels is about as fast as other recent TVs but definitely slower than a computer with a USB tuner. That's perfectly fine for me since I don't intend to channel surf with this TV.
It's nice that the unit offers a calibration wizard but I did not like how the recommended contrast setting made darker images lose detail. I ended up turning the contrast almost all the way up. There's really not much to say about the image quality. It's perfectly decent and I didn't find any noticeable flaws. So far I've mostly used it to play Lego Batman and there is no image lag that I've read about in other TVs. One thing I've noticed is that with computer to HDMI connections, the default is overscan mode so you have to adjust your video settings to decrease the image size to fit entirely within the TV screen. Once you do the image looks great. There is also VGA port, but that it does not handle full HD resolution.
There are two menu systems, a quick menu and a more comprehensive menu that gives you all of the controls that you would ever need. That's thoughtful of LG as I've always disliked having to delve deeply into a menu system to do something as simple as deleting an unwanted channel. It still takes a minimum of three presses though. It would be nice if they had provided a button just for that on the remote.
Like many TVs at this price point, it only provides optical audio out which is ironic since most buyers of cheaper TVs don't have stereo systems that have optical in. Fortunately, there is at least a headphone port that can be used to connect to computer speakers or even a stereo receiver. This is important because the performance of the built-in speakers are not proportional to the size of the screen. At 42" this is a decent size for a small home theater yet the speakers cannot provide that experience. That's OK--I didn't expect it to and I've got external speakers to take over.
Although they skimped on the audio out, they covered the video inputs well. There are component as well as composite inputs as well as three HDMI ports. And there is a conventional USB port instead of the more limited memory card reader. I played a couple videos through USB and it handled the job flawlessly. I was very pleased to find that it kept track of where you stopped a video last time you watched it. It's little things like that that make this TV stand out from cheaper ones.
I did a ton of shopping to find something with a good picture that doesn't break the bank. Many new TVs sold now are much more expensive and have a lot of buzzword features which this unit does not have. This unit is basically a brand new TV with last year's features. I'm fine with that as long as I get a bigger screen for the money.
Just unboxed this TV and have been setting it up. The picture calibration tool is fairly nice, and so far things look good on the display.
The back panel connectors seem a bit cheap though in the sense that they're not mounted very firmly to the chassis. When I plugged in an HDMI cable, the whole connector board flexed a bit, though not enough to push the connectors all the way in to the chassis. Given that connector changes aren't very frequent, this probably isn't a big deal, but they could have used a few more screws and mounting stands to hold this important bit of the board to the back cover.
Overall, the TV is very light, which is nice now that I have to move it around and put it into my entertainment center. Looking forward to seeing how Blu-Ray movies look on this thing...
|I am so pleased with my purchase. This TV has great picture & sound. The menu is almost idoit proof! My husband and I like different settings when watching tv so changing options frequently has become so easy with this tv. We never found a better price for this model! I would highly recommend.|
price is good for the size. We have bought the 32 inch 32LD350 and we loved it so we bought another LG product. This TV looks great except for a minor dark corner borders about 3 inches in, although it's not really that noticable.
The intelligent sensor is great for at night. It'll seem really dark at first but it takes about 5 minutes for your eyes to get used to it and is very pleasant on the eyes (at first you'll be thinking that it's so dark, how can you see anything, but just try it for 5 minutes). Try turning it back on to standard and it'll look so bright that it gets uncomfortable.
I'm a novice at calibrating the TV but the built-in self calibration wizard is great, it looks a lot better than the standard settings.
I had done a lot of research for a TV for my new apartment before finally deciding on this TV. I wanted something large, affordable, and with a great picture. This TV has all of that. This TV has one of the best pictures I've ever seen, it's better than any other 40 inch I've seen setup at any of the department stores. With that being said I did adjust the picture a bit when I first got it (which is super easy to do and there are tons of options for tweaking).
Pros: Incredible Picture, Great Built in Speakers, Super Cheap, Excellent Viewing Angles
Cons: Only 2 HDMI ports, Only audio out is Optical Digital (Both of these haven't affected me, but I figured I'd be fair).
Bottom Line: If you're looking for a 40" TV with a great picture for super cheap then LOOK NO FURTHER!
|Had to mess with the settings a bit when I first turned it on but now the picture is great! Easy set up and settings adjustment. I'm not very technical and it was a breeze for me! Sounds awesome. Overall great tv 5/5 stars|
For its price, this is an excellent TV, and I can recommend it without reservation. I've been using it as a huge monitor with my Mac, and it works really well. The video quality on HD movies is very good, with excellent colors and very deep blacks. I don't find any issues with the 60 Hz TV, no judder or blurring at all.
The calibration tool was excellent, and very easy to use.
I also like that this TV is very light, which should make transporting it easy.
This HDTV was a great price and I give it Thumbs UP!!! It has excellent color, easy to setup and it has a great sound. This TV size fits perfectly in my bedroom.
I first purchased another popular brand Vizio 32" LED and it was not heavy to lift, it only weight about 4 or 5 lbs., but I was very unhappy with it. Maybe the one I received was defective, but I had to return it because the color looked faded on all channels and sound was terrible. The sound, sounded like you were in a tunnel.
I ordered the LG 32LK450 HDTV online and received Free Shipping for this particular model, which I had no idea that it would be FedEX overnight from the company I ordered it from. That was a plus for me, because my old TV died and I needed a new one right away. I'm very happy that I decided on LG 32LK450 model, after researching the Internet for reviews, and it showed good ratings. I did know that LG made great cell phones, but had no idea that their HDTV's were this good. LG gave me great customer service when I had some questions about the setup. I will be purchasing another LG HDTV for my 2nd bedroom in the near future.
I ordered the LG 42LK450 42 inch lcd television based on numerous consumer reviews and ratings. We wanted a larger television for the master bedroom and had decided a 42 inch was the perfect size.
The television was delivered in perfect shape. Unpacking, wall mounting, and set up were quite simple. The remote control is easy to use and almost intuitive. Menu screens are the best I've ever seen. Unlike many menu screens the LG has screens that do not require a genius to understand. In most cases I did not even need to refer to the manual to figure them out.
Picture quality is excellent.
Can't speak to reliability since I just started using the television but am certainly am very impressed thus far.
