I will second Kirwin's request as to why you thought it was subpar.
I saw it at BB recently and it looked like the picture was plenty fine to me. But, to be honest, they're all starting to look like a blur to me. I've looked at so many panels in the last 2 months, I think I'm starting to go blind, then I won't need TV at all, eh?? Think of the money I'll save.......that is 'til I lose my job 'cuz........ehhh......I'm blind!
Anyway.........I'll have to admit that on paper it looks like the perfect set. I mean, I honestly think that LG actually LISTENED to what people want. All the inputs, tuner, dual-HDMI (still can't believe the folks putting out single HDMI sets), DVR, card slots so you can come home, pull the card from your camera & show off the pics and most important...............LCD so NO GLARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I still don't get why people aren't HUGELY going after LCD. Projection TV's suck.......(minus the Sony 60" SXRD which is $$$$$)..........Plasmas are pure glare unless you're in a totally dark room...........(yet mfgrs won't even make plasmas w/ a non-glass front, it's just glare & more glare year after year!)
I'm baffled as to why 42" LCD's aren't all over the market!
P.S. As a side note, I notice that LG's website has a totally different picture up for the 42LB1DR up than the BB website has (& what they have on display). I'd love to see the one on the LG website in person, it looks thing, slim & oh so sexy!
