About to make the jump on an LG 42PJ350. Good choice?


Is there anything I need to include with the purchase? Calibration equipment or anything of the sort? Will it have all necessary cables?

It will not come with cables. You will need the correct cables for whatever you will be connecting to it. As far as calibration I would get someone in that knows what they are doing.

.. both models mentioned would be very good purchases; depends on if desiring local purchase/online. Samsung does have v. good processor. Though, believe LG has slightly better blacks.


regarding accompanying items: no calibration equip., but a search thru the Forum, you'll probably locate some suitable settings which you can adjust to taste.


cables: with Cable/Satellite: if non-HD receiver (which would be waste), it will connect directly out of receiver w/ coaxial cable. If HD receiver, purchase HDMI cable (4-6ft length. 28awg-more flexible) thru the Forum sponsors (Blue Cable or Monoprice) or thru Amazon; should not cost more than $10 for one HDMI cable.


DVD player (Blu-ray): with standard player, you may be able to connect HDMI cable (or) Component (Blue/Red/Green plus need separate digital audio cable). Same for Blu-ray player, and believe Playstation 3 player.


with OTA (Antenna): plug coaxial directly into set & do ATSC search (TV menu function) for local HD-channels/local networks/affiliates. (Some SD channels will sneak in also; shown as 480i)

If you haven't jumped yet.... You might want to check out the Zenith Z42PJ240 (carried by Sears/Kmart - maybe others). The Zenith is basically a re-badged LG. Essentially the same set, but with a lower price tag.
