As noted by my title, this version of the LG 26' TV was my first flat screen tv ever. I purchased it because I was bored of the older CRT sets that were out and wanted something different. I would recommend this television to anyone because of the affordability of it and because of it durability and picture quality. I have no complaints with this set since i had it for about two years. The screen size is perfect for those who like to play games or lay back in bed. And for parents looking for an affordable and cool tv to give to their college young adults, this would be a perfect match for them.
