LG Electronics 42LF7700 – Perfect purchase


I have put in ages wanting at tvs pondering which one to obtain and why and seeking to comprehend the unique products and codes. Finally i determined on the lg forty two since it experienced the finest photograph in the regional supermarket. I haven’t bought a digital ariel but do have a sat dish so i purchased this product expecting to use the absolutely free sat to get the absolutely free channels and also to improve to sky hd. Now i have received the tv it has tuned in 117 digital channels very easily and the picture is so excellent i’m pondering if i truly need the hdtv membership or the no cost sat, i will likely hook up the freesat to see what the free of charge hd channels are like and then make a decision. I am significantly impressed with the image and the seem quality, in addition the entire ease of use. The truth that it swivels to give you obtain to the plugs and cables is a real bonus. The wii also looks excellent, even thought it isn’t going to support hd and is only heading through a scart. The little ones want to be on the wii all the time and the most effective detail is when we are all on it and you only get a quarter of the monitor it is really massive plenty of for you to truly get pleasure from it. Incredibly, extremely delighted with this.

Effortless plug and participate in, even for an ‘old chap’. Initially supply was inside 48 several hours, excellent. Then i assume it took me lengthier to screw the base together than the tv to ‘ask me’ would i like it to convert freesat and freeview, all i had to do was say ‘ok’ (devoid of even totally examining the guide) and absent it went. There i was sitting down up and watching a excellent photograph within just 20mins of unpacking the established. Did get someday examining different types and technology, but this item is great value for cash. Set up quite easy, young ones really like the technological know-how for personal computer connectivity and many others. As a tv, both seem and photograph are 1st class, mind you hd is even improved.

Good tv and superb provider. Tv arrived subsequent working day (excellent service), uncomplicated to established up and delighted with both of those the sound and image top quality.

Comments from buyers

“Better than my Brother-in-Laws £5000 set, Total mint TV – and for the price a total bargin!!, Champagne TV for Beer Money, Pro’s & Con’s for the LG 42F7700, LG 42″ with free sat, Perfect purchase”

V with next day shipping and delivery is a ought to, pleasant smooth glimpse to it and the stand easly went alongside one another with the t. V, all round i extremely recomend this to somebody who is acquiring a new t.

I did a little bit of looking at and made a decision on the 42lf7700. We don’t have a roof aerial, so the freesat was the deciding component for me, together with the 100hz monitor alternatives. It arrived as predicted, and unpacking was uncomplicated ample. I’ve see a few of individuals point out that the stand is fiddly to setup – i have to disagree and will say that it was flawlessly effortless to screw the foundation to the ‘upright’ and then slot the complete detail into the base of the tv. I bought a tilt / swivel wall bracket and that arrived at the exact same time. And an hour later on it was on the wall and tuning alone to the satellite signal. There are only two hd channels on freesat – bbc hd seems to be definitely stunning, whereas itv hd seems to be a small bit inferior. I failed to touch the paper handbook, and just dived into the menu by using the remote regulate. It’s so easy to navigate close to.

This tv is quick to hook up up to all of your other devices. The picture top quality is second to none. The definition on a blu ray participant is sharp. The optical output gives good audio related to a 5. A recommended tv if you have a blu ray participant or sky hd.

    Excellent tv, easy to set up with a crisp picture and better than average sound. Previous comments about the poor black appears only to apply to the internal tuner in the tv. The blacks are superb when running a humax pvr through the tv, so the set can produce great blacks, but the tuner doesn’t seem able to.

      I took a long time to choose this tv,hoping that it was suitable for my ps3. My patients has been rewarded. Playstation is fantastic,the blue ray looks great. Built in freesat is very good. . Having seen some “42” tvs in shops with less than spectacular picture i am very impressed with this screen. Overall i would say this tv is a happy medium between quality and price.

It arrived as expected, and unpacking was easy enough. I’ve see a couple of people mention that the stand is fiddly to setup – i have to disagree and will say that it was perfectly easy to screw the base to the ‘upright’ and then slot the whole thing into the bottom of the television. I bought a tilt / swivel wall bracket and that arrived at the same time. And an hour later it was on the wall and tuning itself to the satellite signal. There are only two hd channels on freesat – bbc hd looks absolutely stunning, whereas itv hd looks a little bit inferior.

      Before i review the tv, i’ll like to say the first set delivered, turned out to be faulty, taking over 2 mins to switch on. After calling lg support, (a painless process), it was deemed faulty and agreed should be returned to the vendor. Annoying, but none the less reassuringly simple. This led to the amazon returns process, which i was dreading as i’ve very has to return an item before. With a bit of time invested in reading the returns procedure carefully, this too turned out to be straight forward. . This is my first tv in over 10 years. – i connected it to my now defunct sky disk (just removed the cable from the box and plugged it directly into the tv)- auto tuning was straight forward, followed by some kind of system updates (how does it do that over an aerial.

    Efficient and speedy delivery from supplier was the start, but a truly wonderful unit once installed which again was simple. Very pleased with this product which is easy to use and gives a great picture. Having the freesat was an extra bonus.

    Good looking and very pleased with the performance. Clarity of picture on freesat even better than i had hoped especially on hd showings. Continuously changed channels when used with my virgin box for the first few weeks for which virgin had no solution despite an engineer call out. Now seems to have sorted itself but i will now only use virgin for catch up until i get a better and cheaper solution. Sound clarity is excellentthe ecosave picture settings are too dull for me on auto but there are plenty of other setting options to resolve this.

    Surprisingly good – took no time to set up, the picture and sound quality are both excellent, freeview works great and so does freesat. The only niggles are that the freesat tv guide seems to take longer to populate than the freeview one (although both work fine) and the audio out from the tv is digital, so don’t get caught out buying a surround sound unit without at least one spdif input on it if you want to hook up this tv.

        Nice looking set easy to set up to receive the channels, bit fiddly to fix stand. Great picture but disappointing sound, you will need optical lead to connect to amplifier or scart to audio lead. However you only get your surround sound in freesat mode, if you have virgin or sky box you get the tv sound. I would like to alert you to the con merchants offering to install, i phoned 3 of these sites and they quoted “from” 450 to 630 pounds and extra for the dish. I found a local chap who did it for 150 inclusive and that was for two rooms ( freesat box in other). If i could go back and do this order again, i would buy a freeview tv and a humax freesat recorder box( excellent) that way you would have a few more stations plus a recorder for less pounds.

    I was really pleased with the product when it arrived. Setup was relatively stright forward although i didn’t utilise the freesat option as i get most things through sky. The freesat would need a separate dish as far as i am aware or i would have to take the cables from the sky dish but lose sky in the process. The quality is great and blu ray looks great on it.

      Easy plug and play, even for an “old chap”. First delivery was within 48 hours, great. Then i think it took me longer to screw the base together than the tv to “ask me” would i like it to turn freesat and freeview, all i had to do was say “ok” (without even fully reading the manual) and away it went. There i was sitting up and watching a brilliant picture within 20mins of unpacking the set. Did take sometime reviewing different models and technology, but this product is excellent value for money. Setup very easy, kids love the technology for pc connectivity etc. As a tv, both sound and picture are first class, mind you hd is even better.

        The tv set arrived on time and was packed well. After setting the tv up, a quick affair, plugged the power and switched on. Setup to download freesat (remember you need a satelite to receive freesat) and freeview channels was very simple indeed. The picture quality is great, however, the eco technology is not my cup of tea as it darkens the picture quite noticeably. Other than that it is easy to use no faffing about with setting up your video or dvd players just plug in the scart plugs to the scart sockets on the tv and powering on either device automatically selects the appropriate av channel. I purchased this as present for my parents and they are very pleased with it and have had no problems using it (both in their 70’s and not technically minded). If i had one gripe it would be the sound system it is adequate for my parents but i woould like something more sophisticated to give stronger tops and bottoms. I think i will have to purchase a cinema surround sound system for them (me).

    This tv is super – it looks great, and was easy to install and set up. The sound quality is ok – not as good as my sony bravia – but perfectly adequate. My only slight quibble is that i get the impression that what i am watching is slightly ‘over bright’ and i may have to over ride the factory settings and adjust the brightness, as it gives the picture quality a lack of depth and ‘reality’. But all in all, i am very pleased with my purchase – it also arrived very promptly in 48hrs and not the 3-4 days as i was anticipating.
