I am back to my family house for a limited time and my old TV set got busted Well I don't watch TV but hey whats gonna happen to my xbox? It was CRT but colors and screen size was perfect for SD gaming and movies. Well when I was down, thanks to my friend he offered to me his new LG LCD HD TV set for my personal pleasure.
TV looks really nice. Shiny - glossy black, slim, with background color, table deck and nearly invisible speakers. Well first things firts, hooking up xbox HD is pretty easy and you have multiple of everything nearly. TV works amazing with 1080p settings with the fastest and really good looking games. I had made my visual tests on my favorite + best looking driving games. Colin McRae Dirt and Grid, both from codemasters Well after busted TV view, HD 1080p Dirt was amazing in 42 inch! Then PES 2009, Fear 2, Resident Evil and so on with perfect viewing and nice surround sound. Integrated sound system really makes this TV for HD gaming, you don't look around to hook up your 5.1's to the console. Remote was faily big for a TV but I got big hands so bigger is merrier for me . Settings and input selection was like a walk in the park.
I did not experience any of the TV flaws described in this expert review. But to be fair I never used the TV for watching TV and can not say anything - btw I have a SD satellite subscription, no sense reviewing a HD TV in a SD test. But plays most of the HD Vidoes on my hard drive perfectly. Anyways most of the expert reviews are always too technical and cruel to the product. In this case TestFreaks website and user reviews are more helpful because you got to hear the real home users opinions about the TV. I agree with the 9.0 rating. I don't have an eagle eye but I know what quality viewing is. If a product satisfies your needs more than expected, technical details are just gibberish numbers. Enjoy your TV if you buy one.
