LG 42SL8000 42in LCD TV


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 review


The LG 42SL8000 delivers punchy, high-contrast images from all sources

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

The unpredictability of past LG TV ranges has been replaced by products either ‘very good’ or ‘extremely good’ – this is one of the former

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

A good performer with an innovative design, but it's far too dear, given what's on offer for less

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

LG 42SL8000


looks great, picture quality is excellent overall, sound is good,energy consumption is good.

only a small niggle, as with most tvs there is occasional motion blur but i have yet to see a tv that does not suffer from this, no matter what the manufacturers say.

LG 42SL8000


Fantastic TV, Looks great and picture quality is superb. Plenty of connections to suit all external devices, even able to connect a hardrive to it for playing downloaded movies etc.

Nothing really.
