LG 32SL8000 LCD TV review

 

A media-savvy 32" LCD TV with few weaknesses

Gorgeous menus ; Easy calibration ; Simple to use ; Clean and smooth pictures from all sources

Slight lack of sharpness and contrast ; Some flicker on 100Hz

HD can look soft, but this easy to use LCD TV's kindness to Freeview and DVD makes is ideal for everyday use.

LG 42SL8000 review

 

This HDTV is ultra thin, it's packed with features, and all in all it's really rather good

Attractive ; Slim design ; Excellent picture quality ; Good feature count ; Quite good value

Issues with 200Hz system ; Limited viewing angle ; Some artefacting

LG SL8000 (42SL8000) review

 

LG has long been doing very well indeed in the UK TV market, thanks to some ultra-aggressive pricing. With the 42SL8000, the company has finally proven definitively that it's not only a budget brand, but one that's capable of producing LCD pictures to...

Sumptuous design ; Excellent pictures ; Features and connections galore ; Great value for money

Limited viewing angle ; Getting the best picture can be a rather labour-intensive process

Even the 42SL8000's audio is surprisingly decent for such a slender TV, with an open, engaging, clear and detailed sound stage that even manages to offer a modicum of bass. Only a tendency to sound slightly harsh with extremely high-pitched sounds...

Recommended!

Find out why we think the LG 42SL8000 is a truly outstanding 42in LCD TV.

A round-up of all the breaking news and hands-on previews of the latest tech from IFA 2011 in Berlin.

LG 42SL8000

 

The unpredictability of past LG TV ranges has been replaced by products either 'very good' or 'extremely good' - this is one of the former

Colourful, high-contrast images; good spec for the money; good-looking and nicely finished; great menus

Never entirely comfortable with motion; images could conceivably be more detailed; thinks it's frameless

LG SL8000 (SL80)

 

LG has launched a new line with the SL ranges. The SL8000 (SL80 in USA) is one the SL models and the smaller brother to SL9000 that we will review in a few days as well. SL8000 has a new Borderless design, a 200 Hz system and was awarded an EISA Award...

Picture quality; Very fast response time due to scanning backlights; Price; Refreshing design; Functionality and USB port

Requires some calibration; Black levels; No DLNA

LG SL8000 (SL80 in USA) is a beautiful TV and the new design direction that LG has taken with the Borderless design is interesting. I didn’t agree at all with the EISA committee when they awarded Philips 9704H the best LCD-TV out there but I must say...

LG 42SL8000 1920x1080p LCD HDTV

 

Here comes LG with a slimmed down 42" LCD display: the LG 42SL8000. This is a Full HD 1920x1080p LCD display, the standout feature of which is arguably its thin, sleek design. This is one display I briefly glimpsed at the IFA Show earlier this month,...

Calibrated Greyscale is of Reference quality, with no unwanted colour impurities in the image, Calibrated Colour is absolutely excellent, SD video processing is great, Excellent design, Works brilliantly as a large computer monitor or for gaming,...

Black level is slightly lacking, leaving dark scenes looking grey in dark environments, Limited viewing angle causes picture to appear greyish from the sides, On-board Digital TV tuner video has slightly processed appearance

Above Average

Best LCD picture quality available!

 

I took the risk of ordering this tv without seeing it first because it is still not available in shops, & I have to say that I don't regret my decision at all. Firstly the tv looks stunning, it is incredibly thin & probably one of the best looking...
