LG 42LGX

 

The LG 42LGX delivers impressive HD picture quality in a remarkably thin design.

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.

42LGX

 

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.

UltimateAVmag.com: 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...

LG 42LBX LCD HDTV Review

 

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.
