Expert review by : Thomas J. Norton (



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...

Excellent integrated HDTV tuner and DVR, good SD performance

Some image quality issues were evident while viewing HD content, speaker distortion at high volumes

The LG 42LC2DR is a good mid-range unit with an integrated HDTV tuner and DVR and only a handful of image quality problems when viewing HD content.

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 42LC2D review


LG's biggest LCD to date proves that size doesn't matter

Great looks ; 42-inch screen

Some video noise ; Blacks aren't pure black

A beautifully designed, well-specified TV let down by an uninspiring picture

LG 37LC2D review


High features count, low price

Colour intensity ; build quality ; features count

Standard-definition pictures ; only one HDMI

A great choice for HD fans, but standard-def performance is a let-down

LG 37LC2D 37in LCD TV


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

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.
