It is not hooked up to an HD source (yet) so I really cannot comment on picture quality.
I think the vesa pattern is 200mm x 200mm so I got an adapter plate from amazon to make it 200 x 400. Both are standard formats, it just didnt fit the vesa format of the bracket that I have.
Proprietary power cord is an annoyance as it is only a 6ft cord.

Got it tonight.
Does not seem to be a standard VESA mount. Either that or the bracket I am using is not a standard VESA bracket.
Cord is not removable from the back of the tv. Has some wonky proprietary cord connector behind a removable bezel.

When the LG 32LD550 --> same model line as your 42" pops up on a google/froogle search for $407.01 -- KK, it was there before but I just decided that since I liked the LE5400 SO MUCH, i'd check out it's nearly identical twin the LD550 --> save for fluorescent lighting over the LED.
The LD550 line is Superior to the LE5300 line. It is the Fluorescent TWIN of the LE5400 (LED) line. That extra $60 bought you a larger screen + Networking via Ethernet or w/ a $40-$45 @ amazon LG specific dongle ===> can't use a generic wireless dongle but you can use a DD-WRT or Tomator router as a wireless bridge home built $25-30 into the ethernet port or.. can buy a more expensive wireless bridge ~$60-$70.
I have been very much enjoying netflix streamed wirelessly to my 32LD550. SO BY ALL MEANS KEEP THE 42LD550. It is a superior line by having the networking etc. Otherwise there was no difference between the LE5300 & LE5400.
HOWEVER, again the LD550 line while being subjected to some panel lottery the numbers were LOWER number of MVA panels, than the LE5#00 lines.
The 32LD550 is one hell of a TV. Yes I was relieved when I saw the W, did the push & drag test, and then zoomed in on the screen to see these <<<< indicating for-sure it's an IPS panel.
For those that stated they have a (MVA panel, how did you verify this other than just simply the fourth letter in the model # after the - (hyphen)?
Might I throw in a nicely priced 32" 1080P 60Hz TV...
I was really impressed with the ratings for the Toshiba line... excellent for the 32" I mean i've never seen TV (something so subjective) rated that well... the 37" was also rated very high
Here's the 32" still @ $379.99 - N.E. had it for less but TVs are better if you have to return to Amazon worth $10 - $15 more buck IMO and NE doesn't have it on sale anymore anyway. Rare to find a TV that well liked out of 52 reviews there are NO 2 or 1 star only 5-3stars
The 37" is still there but looks like Amazon is still sold out this maybe it for them but the TV you can check on PRicetrace was sold for a nice price. They ran a sale about a month ago & I don't think they (Amazon - Amazon) has gotten them back in since.
OK, first off the underlined statement is simply not correct. They didn't send IPS panels to the reviewers in some insidious plan to get good reviews and then dupe the people with MVA panels. LG like most panel makers / and TV manufacturers run into panel over-runs and panel shortages. That's why you will find all kinds of different panel makers inside your favorite brands of TV's... A.K.A. the lotteries. Thru the power of the internet the number of people who get informed of this, are better able to make informed & intelligent decisions. Sometimes even finding ways to (generally) tell at a glance which panel is coming from where & hence what type it is.
IPS is an LG design. LG wants to make TV's and have TVs to sell.
If they run short on 32", or 37" panels and another company has over produced them or speculated.... then a deal will likely be made as it's the cheaper alternative. (In the model year 2009-2010 the 32 & 37" LG models I was tracking then ran short of LG panels and ordered 1 Million (M) Million - Japanese made panels from Sharp). Someone sent me the article when I was contemplating between and LG & a Toshiba for a HTPC & Monitor. It turned out that if you got the LG panel it worked great for a monitor... If you got the Sharp panel (although they were highly rated Japanese panels... and were considered very good when calibrated & used by Sharp themselves; it doesn't seem that LG dialed them in or made changed to the manufacturing process when using those panels over their own, and the results were poorer.
It's supply and demand though, not some elaborate conspiracy to fool the reviewers and then PISS OFF your buyers many of whom won't know any of this and be able to "rationally" parse it out. They will simply think as we here all too often (Such and such a brand is SHIT!) = You've all seen those un-informed review/post\rants; while they have a right to be angry, they could / may be likely to run into it again unless the companies stop (:LMAO or people inform themselves. The results for those cheesed off LG buyers will be they likely WON'T EVER buy another LG bc they had a bad result. LG isn't that simple to think I'll sting a customer once and not look at the long term 25 year future. LG, like Samsung, Sony, Toshiba, & Sharp etc. are just trying to meet production quotas and product demand.
I'm NOT disagreeing that it's FARKING SHITTY! If they offered a guarantee of a specific panel for $10-$20 more I'd probably consider paying it and therefore may indeed be able to put an end to much of it by offsetting the manufacturing / production shortfalls. I'd also be willing to wait an extra week or two. If enough people were informed, knew how to tell and could convey that to these companies, but alas this is Earth I live on not my imaginary utopia.
I do suggest to the other person that you give the Toshiba 32E200 or 37E200 (if still available) a look. If I hadn't found my LG 32LD550 + Wireless Dongle for $407.01 Shipped free from Tiger Direct's Fleabay store (yes it was brand new & no they sold out of them) they were the tear stained pull backs from the deal gone wrong last year.

I just finished a 3 hour trek that was well-spent. After going to 2 best buys, I found one that had both IPS panel and VA panel models in stock, but I had to fight for a price match. They have it listed for $999. It seems as though they have no problem matching the $599 price through newegg, but they're not allowed to match promo codes. After some persuasion and forcing a call to the general manager, they agreed to honor it. Even though I ended up paying $30 in tax, it was worth it to guarantee the IPS panel.
I did have to prove on my iPhone that the promo code worked. If theBradfo is correct and the code is dead, you're only likely to get the $599 PM.
Thanks OP, repped

|theBradfo||Deal seems to be DEAD. Getting the error: Sorry, the promo code EMCKHHE22 you've entered is invalid.|
