LG Electronics LE5500 Series

 

(Editor's note: This review of the LG LE5500 series is based on our hands-on testing and evaluation of the 42-inch 42LE5500. According to the manufacturer, the image quality and features should be equivalent for each TV in this model line.)

Lots of picture settings ; Very light and comfortable remote

Menus are unattractive and hard to navigate ; Only five Web apps

The LE5500 series provides few Internet applications and delivers unexceptional image quality for a moderate price.

LG Electronics 42LE5500 42-Inch LCD TV

 

If you're looking for a very thin 40- to 42-inch HDTV that will fit seamlessly into a minimalist design, the 42-inch LG 42LE5500 might capture your fancy. This LED-backlit LCD HDTV ($1400 as of October 8, 2010) is just 1.2 inches thick. The 1080p,...

LG 47LE5500

 

The super-thin LED-based LG 47LE5500 HDTV delivers great colors and sharp images, but it costs more than similar-size sets from competitors.

Thin, attractive cabinet. Accurate color reproduction. Energy efficient. Solid Web apps.

More expensive than the same-size competition. Relatively low contrast ratio. Some backlight bleed.

Review: LG Electronics 47LE5500 47-Inch LCD TV

 

The LG LE5500 Series provides few Internet applications and delivers unexceptional image quality for a moderate price.

The LE5500 sports a shiny black bezel with a very faint hint of purple on the outer edges. It sits on a plain, black rectangular stand (the hint of purple recurs on the neck of the stand). When you turn the set on, a number of lights (for channels,...

Product Specifications

The LG LE5500 Series LED TV is a middle of the range HD TV that's perfect for someone wanting a nice TV but at a reasonable price. It offers all of the features of an edge-lit TV. At just 1.1" thick, it is one of the thinnest TVs available today. It offers local dimming, which can generate higher contrast ratios, as well as more accurate color reproduction. The LEDs also save energy. The TV has a standard array of ports - several HDMI ports, a USB port (which can be used with an included Wi-Fi dongle), and a variety of standard video / audio ports. It offers internet connectivity with streaming content from a number of popular service providers. The picture quality isn't the highest, but it still offers all the great features of high-end HD LED LCD TVs, and is well worth looking at.
