LG 47 SL 9000


Excellent motion clarity., Loads of picture settings., Low power consumption., Accurate 24p reproduction

Bluish residual illumination., Weak sound from the built-in speakers., Way too little contrast., Reflective front panel

LG’s chic new flat-panel scores plus-points for its gorgeous design, accurate video processing, decent motion clarity, and low power consumption. But we’re scoring it down for the weak blacks, bluish residual illumination, reflective front panel, and...

LG 42SL9000 television


The good thing about LG TVs is that the company has a firm grasp of what consumers want to be able to do. In the case of the LG SL9000 that involves Bluetooth connectivity, a bag full of HDMI and SCART sockets plus an all important USB port, which will...

Wonderfully user friendly, excellent connectivity, great for watching downloaded films in HD and a good looking panel

Problem with the audio technology for external inputs and 200Hz really needed for sports

The LG SL9000 is an excellent blend of style and performance. Too often with an LED TV you end up paying the Earth without really getting the performance bang for your hard earned buck. This set offers a tasteful, non-ostentatious design. It's very...

LG 42SL9000 review


An ideal TV for wall-mounting, but disappointing image quality considering the claimed contrast ratio and LED backlighting

LG 42SL9000 review


A slim set that offers stable and detailed pictures, but for £1300 you can do better

Slim chassis, great ergonomics ; stable, detailed images with fine low-light insight ; effective tuners

Clean white tones hard to come by ; motion processing modes

Not bad, but performance doesn't reflect price and appearance doesn't reflect description

LG 42SL9000


A decent TV but does not really gain that much from LED technology ..

LG have produced an LCD TV which delivers a stunning performance in some areas, notably colour reproduction and standard definition performance, but fails to deliver what we have come to expect from LED technology; a sublime black level performance.

LG 42SL9000 42" 1080p LED LCD HDTV


LG's been making real advances with LCD TV lately. Over the last year, the company have been remarkably attentive and responsive to any resolvable issues we've reported to them, and have been producing some displays that are certainly worthy of your...

LG 47SL9000 HDTV


There now are plenty of LED HDTVs out there and it seems as if a new one is announced almost every day, but the LG 47SL9000 is one of the best performers of the bunch. And it looks rather good too.

LG 42SL9000


The 42SL9000 also has a fine set of connections, including four HDMIs and a JPEG/MP3/DivX HD-capable USB port. Gadget hounds can even use a built-in wireless Bluetooth system to play files off suitable mobile phones, or send the TV's audio to Bluetooth...

Lovely design, very bright and colourful pictures, good standard def scaling

Pink tone to whites, limited viewing angle, a few processing side effects, not quite as good with contrast as other LEDs
