I have owned this tv for over 5 years now and paid £1700 new. I have never had a problem with it or a bulb go on me, it has been the best tv that I have owned, only getting rid of it to get a lcd led tv, otherwise i would keep it, remote is brilliant without batteries and the dual screen functions are brilliant, also the range of inputs available… Read Full Review

We purchased an LG DLP projection TV model re44SZ21RD in 2004. It went back three times in three months before we were happy with the third TV. Last year (2008) the lamp blew and it cost £300 to replace with no guarantee of how long it will last. It is now 1 year later switching it's self off after a while and before this happens the picture is distorted and turns greenish before it looses power. This can't be the bulb, surely it would just blow like last time. It also makes a tinkering noise… Read Full Review

Lasted a year before it packed in! At over 2k, not good value for money! The bulb went and to replace, it costs nearly £300. Customer Service from LG bad, same as from Comet - niether will be getting my custom again!… Read Full Review

I have owned a LG DLP RE44SZ20R Projection TV since they where first released and overall have been pleased with it. Item was a bit pricey when I first purchased it some 4/5 years ago ( £2200 at local retailers but they did do a price match to £1700 with one I found on the www, which included delivery and set up). Sound quality is average but when lamps are all working the picture quality is excellent. In the time I have owned the tv lamps have gone twice (and can be quite expensive) but with… Read Full Review

Would not recommend this LG RE-44SZ20RD Projection TV to anyone after all the hassle we have had with it. We have had the tv about 3 years and the lamp blew after one year which we replaced costing £400.00. The same thing has just gone again and the engineer says LG no longer makes the part they need to mend it so have to scrap the TV! Not impressed after paying £1500 and knackered after only 3 years!… Read Full Review

In some circumstances with the LG RE-44SZ20RD such as Interviews with a dark suit and light back ground we get a Halo type effect round the border between the two, or on football games the players may have a fine lineround the outside of them against the pitch, LG have just taken it away to check it over, this is the second repair as the original one had a very poor image when it was unpacked… Read Full Review

While the LG RE-44SZ20RD was attractively priced initially - too my cost have discovered that the lamp has only a limited life span and costs £450.00 to repair/replace. The LG authorised repair agent also required £372.48 just to collect and return the TV with no guarantee of repairability.
TV is great when working but is now proving to be a very expensive item. Consumers should be made aware of these hidden costs before buying. Needless to say LG completely uninterested!!!… Read Full Review

I was looking for a plasma TV but when I came across the LG RE-44SZ20RD I couldn't believe the quality for the price. I've now owned it for about a week and it is probably the best thing I have every bought. The picture in picture is brill, it's definitely saved some arguments in our house.
The only slight problem I have is that sometime when swapping the PIP from AV1 to TV, instead of getting TV it switches to AV1, which then means I'm getting AV1 in the big picture and small. But this is a… Read Full Review

I had two 42inch Plasma TV's and was disappointed with the picture quality, skin tones looked like melting plastic and ghosting was dreadful. Philips was the worst so I got my £3,500 back and bought the LG RE-44SZ20RD. Great TV but the noise of the fans is driving me nuts, suppose you have to make a trade off somewhere. Being a bit of an anorak I've put a 2inch brushed steel border round the outside edge of the screen, breaks up all that black, looks great… Read Full Review

LG RE44SZ20RD Rear Projection Television.
I owned a Loewe (68cm analogue) TV which was the envy of friends for some time. With the advent of more recent technologies (and in particular, digital, wide screen format etc) I wanted to move to a system that supported the new technology. After looking at what was available, my choice was (Australia) Foxtel digital, Sony STR-DE495 coupled with the LG RE-44SZ20RD. The results were very pleasing. While there is a bit of "twitching" involved (Foxtel is… Read Full Review

I had a 32" toshiba pro-logic Tv which was very good,i was a little worried about the stigma attached to rear projetion televisions which is grainess, dull, big and bulky.

The LG RE44SZ20RD Rear projection television offers a high Quality picture via terestrial TV but at its best using SKY Digital. Vibrant colour and good contrast allow for clear daylight watching. PIP kis great for watching sport/soaps at the same time… Read Full Review

There is a problem with the picture on the LG RE44SZ20RD Rear Projection Television. We watch through NTL (It is the same for Sky)and they transmit at 50Hz. This TV is 100Hz. This scans at twice the rate and fills in the picture by prediction. The digital set top box already predicts this and causes a ghosting effect. We also notice pixelisation in certain circumstances. Watching TV is unpleasant with a vibrating background and for some people it hurts their eyes… Read Full Review
