"Cabinet depth" is one of the latest design characteristics that HDTV manufacturers are using to lure potential customers, and thin is most certainly "in." While it's true that most HDTV owners never wall-mount their displaysand that most TV stands'...

Very thin cabinet depth. Excellent picture controls. Good HD picture quality

Occasional visual glitch seen with the 120-Hz feature enabled. Picture contrast lags behind that of some LCDs

The LG 42LGX delivers an accurate HD picture wrapped in a stylishly thin cabinet design.

Few things stand out about LG's 42LGX--except its price. At $2000 (as of November 4, 2008), this 120-Hz HDTV costs twice as much as its stablemate, the LG 42PG25. The notes from our performance jury offer little praise for the 42LGX's picture quality....

Nice first-time set-up Speakers simulate surround sound well

Disappointing image quality Extremely expensive

The 42LGX has a lot to offer, but its high price limits its appeal

LG 42LBX Review – 42-inch LCD HDTV


The LG 42LBX from the Opus Series. LG has reached another milestone in terms of better productivity and quality products. The performance of this LCD TV reflects on its stature.

An ideal blend of beauty, advanced technology and affordability the all new LG 42LBX should definitely be taken into consideration if you’re shopping in the 42” LCD TV market.

LG 52LBX Review – 52-inch LCD HDTV


The LG 52LBX. If you're looking into your first HDTV and looking to go big, the LG 52LBX is a great mix of features and affordability. With stunning images, no dead pixels and no audio issues, this LCD TV is a great package. The 52LBX is the largest...

But these minute flaws are overshadowed with its many advanced features: 120Hz display panel, XD Engine, USB Media Host- you name the high-end feature and this LCD TV has it. Its HDMI supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus...

Then, in January 2008, just a few months into the LBX's reign, LG announced the LG60 series at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The new models cost a few hundred bucks more than their LBX counterparts and have a more expansive feature set, so the...

Expert review by: Lawrence E. Ullman ( LG 52LBX LCD TV


Introduced as LG's flagship line of 1080p LCD TVs just last summer, the Korean giant's LBX series began shipping to dealers in the forth quarter of 2007. The LBX TVs seemed promising, albeit relatively light in features compared to some similarly...

Great color, blacks, shadow detail, Grayscale close to correct in Warm color-temp setting, Four HDMI inputs, Good value, Excellent off-axis performance, Good 480i picture quality, Good black level and shadow detail

Loss of detail in moving images, Slight white crush in bright white scenes, Only one set of RGB calibration controls, 1:1 mode is hidden, applies only to the HDMI inputs, and doesn't work well with 1080i sources, Over-hyped greens, Poor user interface...

At a list price of $3600, the 52LBX's hidden and only partially functional 1:1 mode pretty much renders it non-competitive with similarly priced models from Sony, Toshiba, and Samsung, all of which have this important feature fully implemented and...

I'm glad to say that the LG 42LBX lives up to its christened title. This Opus definitely delivers a delightful visual symphony.

I had minor quibbles with some of the Opus's ancillary functions; but when it came down to the essentials of picture quality, I was quite impressed with its performance. This Opus series from LG is truly a visual work of art.

120Hz processing. This will help give the user a much more realistic picture without so much focus on the background picture set information

Product Specifications

The LGX models are the slimmest LCD HDTVs with built-in tuners on the market. The sleek design features unique red-color accents and invisible speaker design. Thin in profile, but big on performance, the LGX provides the highest resolution available, and is easily adaptable to varying viewing conditions.
