LG LS4600 series review

 

When LED TVs arrived in a blitzkrieg of publicity several years ago, many consumers believed, mistakenly and with a lot of help from the advertisers, that this technology was automatically better than LCD. While LED lighting has some benefits, it's not...

The LG LS4600 is an attractive-looking midrange TV with a slim bezel and a rotating stand. Its picture delivers good shadow detail and colors are relatively accurate. The menu system is easy to navigate.

The TV has some of the worst black levels and uniformity I've seen this year. Colors are desaturated and skin tones in particular can look a little pale. For a midrange TV there are no features to speak of -- even the network port is inactive.

The LG LS4600 LED TV has looks on its side, but it doesn't perform to the level expected at this price.

LG 55LE5400 LED LCD HDTV - Intro

 

The LG 55LE5400 ($2699) seems expensive, but that's an awful lot of screen for the money. The color performance on this 55-inch LED-backlit TV is outstanding, among the best we've seen in some time. Conversely, the black level is terrible, even for an...

The LG 55LE5400 ($2699 MSRP) is a 1080p LED-backlit LCD. Overall, we were impressed with most of the performance numbers. The weak points are clear. LG has consistently shown an inability to get its black level down far enough to compete with Sony and...

LG 55LE5400

 

The LG 55LE5400 is a 55-inch LED-backlit LCD television. Priced at a whopping $2699, most of that money must going towards the large screen, because it's certainly lighter on features than most 55-inch TVs. The performance is a bit mixed, but we were...

It's becoming increasingly standard to expect streaming content from TVs of a certain size and price range. Anything over $2000, in our opinion, better be packing something. Fortunately, the LG 55LE5400 is equipped with a LAN port and the option to add...
