1. The "Model" you have.
2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Great picture quality with ALL of the features I wanted. I originally got an LG 37LC2D, but was not satisfied. I really like the on-screen guide feature.
3. What you like best about your LCD.
The TV Guide on-screen and built-in DVR are absolutely awesome. I no longer use my Panasonic DVD recorder, which was always a bit klunky anyway. Picture quality is great (HD and SD), and menu navigation is easy.
4. What you don't like about your LCD.
Having to change screen ratio settings depending on the show. Not always consistent. Remote-control design not the greatest..
5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
A bigger hard drive
6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Selling a set with a built-in dvr and ONE tuner is a mistake. You really need two tuners, so you can watch one show while recording another. You should also include the biggest hard drive possible.
7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
That the built-in TV guide feature is much more useful than my older "Guide+" on my RCA analog set, and despite the pickiness of several people in these forums, my lcd set's picture quality and brightness and color are amazing, period.
8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
Recordings seem to cut off a minute or two early. I am still playing. This is adjustable.
9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
Not really, but they finally became "affordable" (sort of) for me. Got my set for about 50% of its original price.
10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
One thing I get annoyed at is how many people do not realize that you can get *really good* television, and tons of HD content, over the airwaves. As in, broadcast television. No, you won't get ESPN, but many cities offer far more in digital tv signals than the analog counterparts. Many prime-time shows are in full HD now. *NO CABLE OR DISH REQUIRED*. Just a regular old antenna. Voila. In my city (Milwaukee, the analog stations are 4,6,10,12,18,24,36, and 58. That's 8 stations. In digital? We get: 4-1, 4-2, 6-1, 10-1, 10-2, 10-3, 10-4, 10-5, 10-6, 10-7, 12-1, 18-1, 24-1, 24-2, 55-1, 55-2, 58-1, 58-2. That's 18 stations compared to 8. Two of those are desdicated 24x7 weather. Just like cable... almost
If you are considering getting a HDTV, check out "titantv.com", and see what digital content you have in your neighborhood *before* being sold a crappy dishtv deal by the BB or CC dude.
A lot of this is consumer ignorance, but a huge part of this is ALSO due to salesdudes basically "implying" that in order to get HD content, you need a cable or dish setup. I wonder how many people have thrown tons of money away because of this false impression............
