Dark scenes have vibrant color with excellent dark shadow detail thanks to the high contrast
This is one of the best features of the 55LA6200, value. At $1100 it's tough to beat in the 55" size for value. It competes with the Panasonic TC-P55ST60. Samsung's answer is the UN55F6400. The LA6200 is one of the best value buys in the market.
Slim bezels with a quiet, gunmetal finish
If you need a bigger panel without a price tag to match, the LA6200 series is a pretty decent bet. This isn't an exciting TV - the black levels are middling and the controls are downright spartan. But if you aren't a picture purist and fancy features like apps and 3D are important to you, you could do a lot worse.
My advice? Do yourself a favor and take a look at the Google-powered TVs from LG this year instead.
I love this TV
The smart: while waiting for the cable modem to reboot, I clicked on settings, and the TV connected to my wireless network faster than a new Mac does. A click on the "smart tv" remote button, and I was in business. The YouTube app connected easily with my iPad, so I was instantly able to play videos I bookmarked. The TV software then remembers the videos you've recently played so you can go back to them easily.
Excellent Value/Price vs. Quality Offering
The 42 inch 42LN5700 is a great value piece if you want that great LED edge lit backlighting from LG and tons of features sans 3D at around $650. And since plasma TVs are not produced in the 42 inch size range anymore this is a standout in terms of quality and value for 2013/2014.
If your looking for a great gaming tv, look no futher
I purchased this tv about 2 weeks ago as I saw on avsforums.com that a few early adopters were really talking this tv up. I gotta say that i'm 100% satisfied with this tv. I purchased the 32" to use as an office gaming tv, as well as a monitor for my macbook pro. In both cases, it performs extremely well. First of all as a gamer, its hard to find a tv in todays times that has low input lag. While I dont have a testing device, I can tell you that this tv has very little input lag.
The LG 42LN5300 offers a stimulating price for those wanting to save money on that second or third TV or for those who want decent quality but dont want to pay up for lots of features. If you just want to watch TV on with a quality picture and not have many options this could be your set.
Gorgeous color, Sharp, clear image
While you could argue that the LN5300's 42-inch display is a bit too big for its 60Hz britches, we still think it offers serious value for the money. The TV's sharp image and vivid color output provide an enjoyable viewing experience for a seriously low price. The poor audio performance, and affinity for jitter gave us pause, and those looking for a broader feature set would do well to consider the previously mentioned Vizio E420i Smart TV.
Great TV gets better with GOOGLE TV
TV picture itself is great, like most TV's today. With OTA the quality is amazing, but cable still looks great too. The are a ton of options to fool with the picture that I have yet to tackle except for true motion which I turned off (Like every TV that has this, makes any show look like a soap opera)
Play a little nicer with the internet
The 55 inch GA6400 is the second largest model in LG's mid-teir Google TV seires. It has the standard Smart TV feature set that is included in most of LG's TVs and Google TV as well. Those two things alone mean it is a feature packed television. Google TV means it will play a little nicer with the internet, as well has having a wider choice of apps. LG made sure the picture quality was not going to disappoint either.
Commendable color performance
The GA6400 series delivers an attractive picture, convincing passive 3D, enjoyable web-browsing, and streamlined access to content. Searching for movies through several providers is easier than ever, and LG's Magic Remote takes the headache out of web browsing on a TV. Effective voice vontrol, efficient gesture functions, a handy scroll wheel, and a full remote keypad combine for a tasty shmorgishborg of easy interfacing.
Offers the comfort of a big HDTV with an affordable price tag
At the end of the day, it seems that LG 42LM3700 is quite a good buy. It offers the basic functionality of a modern HDTV for an affordable price. Whatever you want to do with it, you'll most probably be satisfied with it.
Conversion of 2D to 3D picture effect
Large screen helps in optimal viewing experience of movies in a bigger screen, and even in a HD mode with better clarity. In addition to this, the latest technology of LG Cinema 3D, the viewers are able to transform the 2D version of visuals into advanced 3D version, by controlling the depth of the picture. Stunning and enhanced three-dimensional entertaining system has provided an added edge to the device by LG, model number 42LM3700.
This size is an excellent value offering for the screen space and picture quality at the price
We are impressed to see it toting a 120Hz panel for fast action performance. It is quite the plus for a budget model and a good reason to give this set another look. The LN5400 series is the perfect candidate for those who view 3D and Smart TV features as unnecessary bells and whistles but still want a full HD resolution picture.
Clunky and plain... but it could be worse
The LN5400 series does a lot of things right: the menu is stuffed with options; the Picture Wizard calibrator is a useful addition to any display; the simple design avoids fashion faux pas; and the colors on-screen are accurate and perfectly balanced. Unfortunately, this entry-level line-up is more focused on usability than picture quality.
With a very narrow contrast ratio and permanent 120 Hz motion enhancement, this is not a TV for movie lovers.
Amazing TV for the price!
Being that this is my first HDTV, I can't really compare it to another specific one, but from what I have, it's just been amazing. The quality of the picture on the screen is crisp and bright, the volume adjusts very well, they even have a setting where it dims if you have the tv on at night in the dark (I sometimes fall asleep with the TV on so that helps). For the price it's a great bargain, I was in WalMart the other day and they had another 32 in. for the same price but a no name brand.
The viewing angle is wide for an LCD TV
There's not much to dislike about the LG 42LS3400 (MSRP $719). It doesn't have many ports and the audio is average, but it makes up for these shortcomings with its great color accuracy, wide viewing angle, and bright white levels. This TV even did well with motion performance and it doesn't have any fancy enhancement features like "TruMotion" or "CineMotion."
The MSRP may say $719, but you can easily find this LED for under $500 online.
A good but not great set
My own opinion of the 560 is that it's an excellent looking TV but one that grinds right along the border of "minimal" and "cheap". The set has been scaled back significantly compared to past models in response to the advance of LED, which seems poised to become the default backlight technology of LG's TV lineup. If you have simple tastes and just want a good looking set for gaming and occasional movie watching, the 560 is a great value and will perform well enough.
There isn't much special beyond a good picture with a 1080p resolution.
The LG 42CS560 is a great model for what you pay for. It is cheap, and also has a good picture with a 1080p resolution. There isn't much special beyond that. The screen size at 42 inches makes this a very versatile TV, which can be used in many places as a main family TV, or as a secondary bedroom TV. Many people who bought it felt that it also made a great gift for someone looking to upgrade from an old CRT TV.
Fantastic TV ... with only one possible issue
The picture is beautiful after calibration, and with energy saver mode turned off, obviously. I found that the TruMotion feature works under certain conditions, mostly for TV broadcasts. For DVD and Bluray, I had to turn it off - because, even though it did seem to make the image appear sharper (especially for DVD material), I just couldn't get used to the SOE. Suddenly, the Mentalist characters looked like they wandered onto the set of Days of Our Lives. Just too distracting.
Good choice for the money
Owning a SONY Bravia LCD and a Panasonic Viera plasma I knew I preferred the plasma and decided on this LG 50-inch for its hard to beat price. I considered it a secondary TV to my larger 1080p Panasonic so didn't mind this one's 720p resolution. After living with it for a few weeks, I'm happy with that decision and I would rate the picture very highly, with a couple minor reservations.
Saving energy is one of the biggest pros of the LG 42PA4500 TV.
The LG 42PA4500 TV is a quality unit with many great features. It may not be the best choice out there, but for the price, it is definitely worth every penny. If you can afford to spend more than $750 on a TV, this might not be the right choice for you, but if not, it is a great upgrade from any LCD unit or any older Plasma.
You will get a sharp image with great features to automatically calibrate your picture.
Isn't promising the most amazing image quality.
The LG 42PA4500 is a plasma TV that can be picked up for around £350. We tested the 42" model (42PA4500) but this TV is also available with a 50" screen (50PA4500).
With its relatively restrained price tag, the LG PA4500 isn't promising the most amazing image quality. In fact, LG seems more keen to promote the integrated multimedia player.
