only provides optical audio out, no other options - but its a low-cost TV, so most customers will want a low-cost audio solution

1 agrees

takes about 12 hours of viewing for the picture to "break in", at which point you need to re-calibrate the picture

1 agrees

lacks a 120hz mode, so sports and action scenes show a little stutter or blur

The LG 42LK450 is a basic high-definition LCD display. This is similar to the LG 37LK450 in most features, but has a larger 42 inch screen. They are otherwise the same, including the ability to display natively in 1080p resolution. The contrast ratio of 100,000:1 shows enough color contrast for general use, and the maximum refresh rate of 60Hz is adequate for playback of most content that doesn't involve fast-moving subjects. Ports on the side enable easy installation of the TV flush with the wall as well as temporary connections for portable devices, and an expanded selection of rear ports allow cords to be kept out of sight. The unit also comes with an Intelligent Sensor built in to automatically adjust the brightness according to the ambient lighting in the room.
