    There is NO WAY that a 42″ diagonal screen TV can have a length of 51.9″ !!!

    The length must be LESS than the diagonal measure UNLESS the outside ‘band’ is extremely wide.

    I like the picture I get on my LTDN42V68 and I was wondering if you can get CC on mute only? I don’t like it with the sound because they dont sync.

    We bought this TV on black friday at walmart. We bought an Emerson black 42′ 720P last year at Walmart(2009 black friday) and have been very happy with it. When my mom said she needed another TV, we made the choice to try Emerson again. BIG MISTAKE!!! This years Emerson black friday deal has a worse picture than the 720P and its 1080P!!! We thought maybe we were getting bad cable reception so we switched rooms and its still crap! Emerson must have put a really crappy TV tuner in this set. We are taking this TV back and getting a Cyber Monday deal from Amazon. This TV has great picture when using a DVD or gaming console, but if you plan to watch cable on this TV I would definitely recommend a different brand!!

    I bought this tv on black Friday and have determined that it is a good purchase. Remember the tv cost 400 bucks. Great tv for the price.

    For the money ($398.00 at Walmart) an outstanding TV value. Had mine unboxed and set up in five minutes. Simple connection to Directv receiver and DVD via HDMI cables. Used as an exercise-room TV mounted on the wall where it can be seen from any angle. Buy it if you’re looking for economy and excellent value – you won’t be sorry.
