Can this budget LCD TV hold it's own against new TV technology?

Excellent picture ; Good value

Some motion blur ; Minor backlight inconsistencies

Here's a 42in LCD TV worth considering if you have a £500 budget.

LG LH3000 (42LH3000) review


The LG 42LH3000's standard-definition performance is pretty average, but its crisp HD pictures, surprisingly good audio, and classy design help make up for this failing

Good HD picture quality ; Impressive sound ; Easy-to-use menu system

Garish picture presets ; Lacks media-playback features ; Standard-definition picture quality is just okay

Conclusion The LG 42LH3000's failings are most obvious when it's displaying standard-definition material, such as channels on Freeview. But its standard-definition performance isn't exactly bad, especially considering the set's low price tag, and we...

For £600, the LG 47LH3000 47in LCD TV looks like a bargain.

The 47LH3000 is currently to be found as the definition of 'bargain' in the Oxford English Dictionary. Have a look for yourself if you don't believe me.

LG LH3000 (47LH3000)


We weren't expecting much from the 47-inch, 1080p 47LH3000 LCD TV, since it bears a startlingly low price tag. But it confounded our expectations at every turn, offering striking pictures, excellent menus and an attractive design. This set is a real...

Huge but attractive ; great value for money ; picture quality is far better than you&apos ; d expect, given the price

Black levels aren&apos ; t the deepest we&apos ; ve seen ; standard-definition pictures are sometimes slightly noisy

While LG is doing good work with its mid-range and top-end TVs, we really didn't expect much from the almost entry-level 47LH3000. But it confounded our expectations at nearly every turn, stubbornly refusing to be humbled by any of our tests. It should...

LG 42LH3000 42in LCD TV


A full HD LCD TV from LG with a basic feature set, but a very attractive price.

The 42LH3000 is far from perfect. It takes a bit of tweaking to get the best pictures, it could do with an additional HDMI port, and its performance with standard definition signals is merely average. However, for the money, it punches above its...

This is particularly startling given how little the set seems to have compromised on specification to achieve its price. It's full HD for a start, with its screen achieving a claimed, healthy 50,000:1 contrast ratio. Plus it carries LG's Twin XD Engine...

Its phenomenally good value, it looks premium rather than cheap, it's unexpectedly flexible and well featured, it performs just fine

You can get better pictures and sound if you spend more, especially when it comes to contrast and standard definition pictures; its large chassis makes it really very big bit of kit indeed

the picture quality is excellent a sound quality to match

nothing bad, were slightly nervous about the stand being so small for a big 47" TV, but it appears to be stable enough
