LG 32LH5000 review

 

A feature-rich model that's marred by slightly weak audio

Aggressive price ; DiVX and MKV USB playback ; Stylish design

Speakers lack punch ; black levels could be better

Great features at a low price, but unfortunately its standard-def performance is its Achilles Heel

LG 42LH5000 review

 

Solid green credentials join forces with good performance and sumptuous design

200Hz ; Green features ; Lots of picture tweaks

Poor black levels

Good features and connectivity are let down by average handling of blacks

First-class features can't soften the picture blow on this 42" LCD TV

Plenty of features ; Stylish ; Great audio quality: Good user interface

Poor quality standard-def pictures ; Motion blur issues

Disappointing picture quality makes this LCD TV an also-ran

A perfect balance of art and science

Excellent Full HD pictures with decent depth ; Good connectivity ; Great stereo audio performance

Blacks could be deeper

A behemoth tv with plenty to recommend itself, and all at a thoroughly attractive price

LG 32LG5000 review

 

When it comes to gaming, OTT contrast ratio claims put this LCD TV in a tailspin

Easy to use ; Vibrant, rich pictures ; Competitive price

Not Full HD ; Motion smearing ; Poor black levels

A solid set in some ways, but the motion blurring problem can be too extreme

LG 32LG5000 32in LCD TV

 

With its compatriot, Samsung, surging forward, LG is aiming to restore parity with its latest LCD TV range. First up is this 32incher.

LG 32LH5000 review

 

The 32LH5000 is another worthy LCD television to emerge from the sometimes fractious LG stable

Good looks, fine finish ; extensive spec ; sturdy TV reception ; accomplished images from all sources

Sound is the usual dog’s dinner ; some more expensive rivals offer even more detail and insight

£500 very well spent, the 32LH5000 is another step towards LG ubiquity

LG 42LH5000 review

 

A price drop from £1000 to £750 sees this high-spec LG set switch from ‘premium' to ‘affordable' territory. And that, surely, can only be good news... right?

Not all LGs are born equal, but this one proves the company can churn out a real stunner when it wants to

LG 42LH5000 review

 

A price drop of £250 means that the LG42LH5000 is very good value for money, but arch-rival Samsung does it better for less

Punchy, detailed pictures ; neutral colours ; great styling and spec for the money ; good motion

Samsung does it even better for less

Once considered ‘stunning for the cash’, the 42LH5000 will now have to make do with being ‘very good indeed’
