LG 42 LG 6100

 

Excellent motion clarity if you turn down the brightness., Decent SDTV signal processing., Super-sleek design

Low maximum contrast., Imperfections in HDTV processing., Weak sound., No S-Video or headphone connections., Judder in 24p movies

OK, this is a great everyday TV — it’d be unfair to say otherwise. What we can say is this: The LG disappoints with inaccurate HDTV processing and weak contrast. But a washboard-esque construction — standing just four centimetres deep — and a gorgeous,...

LG 42LG6100 42in LCD TV

 

LG has coupled movie star good looks with an attractive price - could this be the 42in bargain you've been looking for?

The LG combines supermodel looks and a fine picture it's a tempting proposition

Eye-catching, designer looks; fool-proof menus; detailed image; handles motion well

So-so sound; lacks crystal clear picture of the class leaders

LG 42LG6100 Scarlet television

 

Anyone who has seen LG's new Scarlet range of LCD TVs of late will have an opinion on their rather unusual red backs and equally enticing/alienating hollowed-out control panel on the front. Though arguably not as good as JVC's identically sized – and...

Full HD, style, four HDMI, colour, TruSurroundXT audio

Some judder on Blu-ray discs, expensive

Though arguably not as good as JVC’s identically sized – and priced – LT-42DS9BJ, LG’s latest is a looker from all angles and is a tremendously well-featured set that just falls short of top-grade picture quality.

LG 42LG6100 review

 

Can this 42-incher compete on picture as well as it does the price?

Gorgeous, ultra slim design ; Very affordable

Motion issues ; Average shadow detail

For surprisingly little outlay, the 42LG6100 delivers divine looks and more than enjoyable pictures, but is let down by motion problems

LG 42LG6100

 

Its slimness isn't its only design claim to fame, either. For contrasting startlingly with its gloss black fascia is a bright red rear that reinforces the TV's true '360-degree' design.

Truly spectacular, space-saving design, excellent connectivity, good feature count, impressive operating system, good pictures mostly, excellent value

Some processing options can cause artefacts, sound struggles during action scenes, black levels could be improved

LG’s fantastic picture controls, as well as their accurate greyscale and colour performance, prove that they can offer features that cater to fans of high quality video. It’s for this reason that the 42LG6100 is so frustrating: its weak contrast ratio...

remarkably cheap for a super-slim 42-inch TV

 

The 42LG6100 really is a gorgeous TV. There's even a big transparent circle under the screen that can be illuminated in red, or alternating white and red if you're feeling really flash. There's LG's XD Engine system for boosting colours, black levels,...
