LG 42LH40 LCD HDTV

 

Korean-based manufacturer LG began as a Lucky Goldstar and evolved into a Life's Good maker of a wide range of consumer electronics goods. It's now one of the biggest makers of flat-panel televisions on the planet, if not the biggest.

With a 1080p/60 input (or a lower-resolution input upconverted by the set to 1080p/60) and TruMotion 120Hz off, the set adds a single repeated frame to each real frame to get to 120 Hz. With TruMotion 120Hz on and an input with 3:2 pulldown, it...

Integrated HD tuner, Good High Definition performance, Wide array of connection options

Some noise issues in Standard Definition, over-sharpening aberrations, image quality problems via PC connection

The LG 37LC2D is quite good when compared to other mid-range and similarly priced units but is certainly not the best unit on the market

LG 37LC2D 37in LCD TV

 

This 37in LCD TV from LG looks great on paper, but how does it fare in the real world?

As you’d expect these days, the 37LC2D also backs up the digital tuner with full compatibility with the Freeview 7-day electronic programme guide – and in fact presents its listings information unusually well.

LG 32LC2D review

 

Along with Samsung, LG is producing some of the most competitive affordable flat screens. The 32LC2D has a few failings but it's still excellent value for money

Understated design ; Future-proof specification ; Advanced, user-friendly settings ; Decent performance

Limited connectivity ; Background noise

Like most LCD screens, sound performance is typically limited, but if you keep the volume levels down it's fine for everyday TV viewing. If used in the right circumstances, the sound presets can be enjoyably effective

LG 42LC2DR

 

If you like simplicity, you'll find this all-in-one 42-inch HD tuner/video recorder/LCD TV combo a very appealing proposition.

Note: This built-in HD DVR recorder is also available in LG's new 50-inch plasma TV, model 50PB2DR, for AU$6,875.

Product Specifications

LG's 42-inch LCD TV (42LC2D) meets the market need for innovative design combined with innovative technology. The stylish wave line design provides consumers with a fresh look in the LCD market. Additionally, the unit achieves the same glossy and luxurious look while eliminating the extra step of painting after molding through new technology providing an environmentally friendly unit. To complement the unit's innovative design, the 42LC2D's XD Engine provides consumers with the desired better overall picture quality and viewing experience. Only available under the LG brand, XD Engine takes low-resolution analog signals to near high-definition levels. Furthermore, meeting the continuous goal of better, crisper images the unit incorporates Super In-Plane-Switching (Super IPS) technology. Consumers can view the LCD from different angles without loss of color or image. The technology allows 178-degree viewing angle - widest in the market - and an 8 ms response time - among the fastest on the market. Additionally, Super IPS technology provides the best display quality at any gray level, the least color shift and distortion, best uniform contrast ratio and the most reliable screen (stable liquid crystal structure). LG's 42LC2D enhances LG's already present wide array of digital display options, building on its global leadership position in LCD technologies and delivering on the promise for practical, innovative and elegant design displays.
