It's the last Crave giveaway of 2013, so it's got to be a big one. And what could be bigger than a 42-inch LCD TV? Well, a 60-inch LCD TV. But let's not get too carried away.

This week, we have a 1080p CCFL-backlit LG 42CS560 for the taking. At around $400, it's a relatively inexpensive LCD TV, with some picture-quality issues not uncommon to budget sets, according to CNET reviewer Ty Pendlebury . But while he cites poor black levels, Ty does like the set's color accuracy and saturation, as well as its performance in bright rooms.

So what do you have to do to say goodbye to 2013 while saying hello to a free 42-inch LCD TV? There are a few rules courtesy of CNET's official rule makers, so please read carefully before you start clearing off your media stand.

See you on January 3 for the first giveaway of 2014!
