LG Electronics 42LH50

 

It would be easy to confuse the LG 42LH50 ($1100 as of 10/1/09) with its sibling, the 42LH55. Only one numeral separates the model numbers. These handsome 42-inch LCD TVs look alike, too, both sporting transparent edges that provide a chic accent to...

The LG 42LH50 provides great connected features, above-average image quality, and good looks for a moderate price.

LG 42LH20 LCD HDTV First Impressions Review - Intro

 

The 42LH20 is a 42-inch LCD HDTV from LG that supports 720p HD signal. The TV doesn't have too many features and its connectivity options are limited (it only has 2 HDMI ports). The limited specs and features of the television sugest it is slated as a...

It will be easy for the 42LH20 to get lost in the shuffle amongst LG's powerhouse 2009 lineup of HDTVs. The 42LH20 will never be a set that appeals to home theater enthusiasts or people looking for an elite television. It doesn't have any attention...

LG 42LH50 LCD HDTV with NetCastReview

 

Yahoo and Netflix and VUDU, oh my! LG's NetCast-enabled 42LH50 is a streaming bargain if ever there was one. (And oh yeah, it's also a TV!)

It may sound like I'm steering you away from the 42LH50 but the truth is actually quite the opposite. In point of fact, I absolutely love this television. Real world HDTV programming and Blu-ray video looks downright fantastic on the 42LH50 and the...

Review: LG Electronics 42LH50 HDTV

 

The LG 42LH50 42-inch HDTV provides great connected features, above-average image quality, and good looks for a moderate price.

Netflix, Vudu, and YouTube support ; Above-average image quality, design, and usability

Full manual only on CD or online

The LG experience starts out a bit inauspiciously; you won’t find a quick-start guide, per se, in the box. But it turns out that the skimpy printed manual functions as a quick-start guide, so what’s really missing is a full-blown printed manual, and...

LG 42LH50YD LCD TV

 

This 42in 200Hz LCD television has great motion control and good overall image quality

200Hz mode, motion smoothing options, good colour control and vibrancy

Not the deepest blacks, 200Hz mode is artificially smooth

If you’re looking for a non-LED backlit LCD television that's still chock-full of technology, LG’s 42LH50YD fits the bill nicely with 200Hz motion control and great picture quality.

LG 42LH5000 review

 

A price drop of £250 means that the LG42LH5000 is very good value for money, but arch-rival Samsung does it better for less

Punchy, detailed pictures ; neutral colours ; great styling and spec for the money ; good motion

Samsung does it even better for less

Once considered ‘stunning for the cash’, the 42LH5000 will now have to make do with being ‘very good indeed’

LG 42LH5000 review

 

A price drop from £1000 to £750 sees this high-spec LG set switch from ‘premium' to ‘affordable' territory. And that, surely, can only be good news... right?

Not all LGs are born equal, but this one proves the company can churn out a real stunner when it wants to
