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,...

Lots of picture settings ; Very light and comfortable remote

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

The 42LE5500 provides few Internet applications and delivers unexceptional image quality for a moderate price.

LG 42LE5500 - A Plethora of Goodness


Looks like just another LED-backlit LCD, but scratch the surface and you'll be pleasantly surprised.

The LG 42LE5500 sells at a MRP price of Rs. 87,990, but the market price is expected to be closer to Rs. 70,000. It is more expensive than most standard 42-inch LCD TVs. Considering the kind of features such as the media playback function as well as...

Love the TV


I am very excited about this TV. We purchased it about a week ago and have been loving it. I have the Panasonic Viera P42S1 plasma and this LED TV looks 100 times better. I haven't watched blu-ray on it yet (still shipping) but the HD channels look...

LG 42" 1080p 120Hz LED-LCD TV 42LE5500


I couldn't ask for a better TV. It fits perfectly in my room and was easy to hang and setup. My movies and video games play great on it as well as my blu ray having a brilliant picture.

Great picture, easy to setup, good refresh rate, great price

LG 42" 1080p 120Hz LED-LCD TV 42LE5500


Great TV.

Great picture. Many options to adjust settup. TV performed software upgrade flawlessly, once it was on the network

Stand is flimsy. TV tilts to the right a bit. You'd be better with a wall mount. LG wireless USB adaptor did not detect my WI-Fi network (signal was too weak) although I have an awesome wireless N router and my laptop got a strong signal next to the...

Sweet Deal After Sour Shipping Experiance


Great deal at well under a grand!

Great tv for the bedroom, wall mounted looks great. They show purple hue around the border in the pic but you really can't see it at all. LED LG, not much more to ask for

Box is not well designed for shipping, the face of the tv rests just inches from one side with no protection ; I still like my samsung better, but not a fair comparison since it cost 3x as much

Excellent HDTV


I was skeptical about this TV since it was made by LG. Previously, my experience with LG had been that they made medium-grade, indestructible cell-phones. However, after doing quite a bit of research, both here on Newegg, and abroad at ConsumerReports...

Awesome picture, with tons of calibration options. Tons of inputs. You can assign different calibrations to different inputs. Plays well with my 360, PS3, computer, etc. Built in speakers are better than I expected for a tV with this profile, but...

Only audio outs are optical and headphone. Not a huge deal, but I'd have liked an RCA out. Also, audio settings are disabled when using the headphone jack, and the internal speakers are disabled when using the jack. This makes sense for headphone use,...

Works Better Than Expected


Ethernet using Netflix App and Opticle Sound Out to my Yamaha, looks and sounds great. TV Speaker sound is as expected

Shipping Box styrofoam was crushed, box wasn't made to ship alone, but TV was good ; Needs More Apps to be writen for it, like Email and a Browser
