Our take on the LG 42LB6300

by Steve Kindig
LG

Why choose an LED-LCD TV?

Reason #1: Awesome picture quality. The LED backlights in these higher-end LCD TVs can give you better picture contrast and more lifelike colors than sets with typical fluorescent backlighting. Reason #2: They're more energy-efficient than plasma or regular LCD TVs, helping you lower your monthly electric bill and helping the environment.

Impressive performance and versatility

LG 42LB6300

LG's stylish 42LB6300 will produce a great picture from all of your video sources. Motion Clarity Index 600 blur reduction combines 120Hz refresh rate with backlight scanning to ensures crystal-clear video motion — you'll see crisp movement even with fast-action sports and video games.

The quality of the LCD panel helps determine the quality of the picture, and LG's IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel makes any seat the best in the house, with a clearer and more consistent image at wide viewing angles compared to conventional screens.

Smart TV features made point-and-click easy

The 42LB6300's built-in web apps give you instant access to a nearly limitless selection of entertainment — streamed video from services like Netflix®, YouTube®, and Hulu Plus®. The new webOS user interface lets you customize your home screen to access the apps you use most, and easily switch between them.

LG's latest motion-sensing Magic Remote is simple and fun to use. You can point, click, scroll and even speak into the remote to find exactly what you want, searching across apps, movies, TV shows and the web... all at the same time! It's a lot like using a wireless videogame controller or an air mouse.

Video Features

Edge-Lit LED Backlighting: Edge-lit LED backlighting is an array of compact, energy-efficient, tiny light-emitting diodes inside the TV to illuminate the picture. The new standard in HDTVs, LED is superior to older CCFL technology, making slimmer televisions possible, with amazing brightness, clarity and color detail.

IPS Panel: One of the secrets behind LG TVs outstanding high-definition performance is the specially designed TV panel. The quality of the panel helps determine the quality of the picture, and our IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel makes any seat the best in the house, with a clearer and more consistent image at wide viewing angles compared to conventional screens.

Triple XD Engine w/ 1080P Resolution: The LED-LCD TV utilizes LG's exclusive Triple XD Engine video processing system for crisp images and rich, vibrant colors. The LG LED-LCD TV has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p).

MCI (Motion Clarity Index) 600 w/ TruMotion: LG's MCI 600 technology lets you see sports, video games and high-speed action with virtually no motion blur. Now your TV can keep up with your fast- moving entertainment. The panels native refresh rate is 120Hz, but LG's TruMotion technology simulates a higher refresh-rate effect for clearer motion images with less blur.

HD & SD Video Inputs: The LG LED-LCD HDTV features HDMI, Component, and Composite video inputs. All of the television's video inputs are displayed at 1080p.

  • Triple HDMI Inputs: The three HDMI inputs will accept 1080p (60/24Hz), 1080i, 720p, and 480p video signals. The HDMI inputs not only allow you to connect your Blu-ray/DVD player or Satellite/Cable receiver to the TV, but also a laptop or computer.
  • Component/Composite Video: The one Component Video input will accept 1080p (60Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals. The component video input can also be used as a composite video input (480i only).
Note: The TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Digital Cable (QAM) tuners with an RF-coaxial input, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.

24p Real Cinema: DVD and Blu-ray movies are filmed at 24 frames per second (fps). 24p Real Cinema makes Blu-ray and DVD movies look more natural by eliminating judder effect.

MHL Compatible: The HDMI 3 input is MHL compatible and designed for the connection of select mobile phones and other portable electronic devices. Simply plug your MHL compatible smartphone into the TV's HDMI 3 port using the HDMI cable that is included with your mobile phone. MHL allows you to display full 1080p video and still images on the LG TV from your mobile smartphone. The TV's IR remote can be used to control basic playback functions (such as Play/Pause, Stop Fast Forward/Rewind, and Menu navigation). Your MHL compliant device will also charge while connected to the TV's HDMI 3 port. To find MHL-certified devices, go to www.mhlconsortium.org.

Picture Size (Aspect Ratio): You can select a different aspect ratio depending on input source (analog broadcasting, digital broadcasting, video input).

  • 16:9: Resizes the image ratio to fit a 16:9 screen.
  • Just Scan: Normally the edges of video signals are cropped 1-2%. Just Scan turns off this cropping and shows the complete video.
  • Set by Program: Depending on the input signal, screen aspect ratio changes to 4:3 or 16:9.
  • 4:3: Resizes the image ratio to fit a 4:3 screen.
  • Zoom: Choose Zoom when you want to view the picture without any alteration. However, the top and bottom portions of the picture will be cropped.
  • Cinema Zoom: Choose Cinema Zoom when you want to enlarge the picture in correct proportion. This enlarges an image with cinemascope aspect ratio (2.35:1) without distortion.

Picture Wizard (Picture Control): This feature lets you adjust the picture quality of the original image. The LG TV's Picture Wizard (Easy Picture Calibration) offers self-calibration with on-screen reference points for key picture quality elements such as black level, color, tint, sharpness and backlight levels. This feature takes the guesswork out of picture adjustments.

Picture Modes: The LG LED-LCD TV provides preset, user, and expert adjustment of the television's picture settings.

    • APS (Auto Power Save): this Energy Saver mode changes the TV's picture brightness to reduce power consumption
    • Standard:  provides optimum viewing for general use
    • Vivid: maximizes the effect of the video by strengthening the contrast, brightness, color, and sharpness
    • Cinema: optimizes video for watching videos
    • Sports: provides fast response speed for sports action
    • Game: provides even faster response speeds for fast gaming
  • User Adjustment: This mode allows you to adjust the video quality settings manually.
    • Backlight: adjusts the brightness of the backlight behind the LED-LCD screen; adjusting the back-light is recommended when setting the brightness of the TV; when decreasing the backlight, the brightness of the black becomes darker without any loss in video signal and the power consumption is reduced
    • Contrast: increase or decrease the gradient of the video signal; you may use Contrast when the bright part of the picture is saturated
    • Brightness: adjusts the base level of the signal in the picture; you may use Brightness when the dark part of the picture is saturated.
    • Sharpness: adjusts the level of crispness in the edges between the light and dark areas of the picture; the lower the level, the softer the image
    • Color: adjusts intensity of all colors
    • Tint: adjusts the balance between red and green levels
    • Color Temp: set to warm to enhance hotter colors such as red, or set to cool to enhance cooler colors such as blue
  • Expert Mode: The LG LED-LCD TV is ISFccc Ready and contains the detailed standards necessary for professional calibration of brightness, contrast, tint, sharpness, color levels and much more to meet local lighting conditions for both day and nighttime viewing. Settings are added to preset Expert 1/2 modes for easy access from your LG remote.

Advanced Picture Control: Advanced Picture Control allows you to adjust some of the advanced video features of the LG LED-LCD TV.

  • Dynamic Contrast: Adjusts the contrast to keep it at the best level according to the brightness of the screen. The picture is improved by making bright parts brighter and dark parts darker.
  • Dynamic Color: Adjusts screen colors so that they look livelier, richer and clearer. This feature enhances hue, saturation and luminance so that red, blue and green white look more vivid.
  • Preferred Color: Fine tune Skin, Sky, and Grass color independently.

Audio Features

Digital Audio Output: The optical (toslink) digital output terminal will output Dolby Digital (when available) or 2 channel PCM. The digital optical output terminal only sends an audio signal in Dolby Digital when receiving Dolby Digital surround sound from a digital broadcast channel through the TV tuner or Dolby Digital content loaded onto USB. The optical digital audio output will only output in 2ch stereo from sources connected to the television via HDMI or RCA.

Note: This TV does not offer an analog audio output.

ARC (Audio Return Channel): The Audio Return Channel in HDMI 1.4 enables the TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to your A/V receiver; increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection. This feature allows audio to be sent from the television to your A/V receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio/video to the television. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to the TV. ARC allows audio from the TV tuner, Network connection, inserted USB device, HDMI inputs, or any analog connected device to be heard through your ARC compatible AV receiver via the television's HDMI ARC input. The audio from the TV's tuner, network connection, and USB port can pass as Dolby Digital or 2ch PCM. HDMI and analog connected devices will be output as 2ch PCM only.

Note: Both the television and the receiver must support ARC for this function to work properly. When connecting an A/V receiver that is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC), connect it to the TV's HDMI 1 input. If connecting a system that is incompatible Audio Return Channel (ARC), an additional audio connection via Digital Audio Out (Optical) is necessary.

Sound Optimizer + AV Sync: This function optimizes the sound based on the environment in which the TV is installed (Normal, Wall-Mount, Stand). If the video and sound of the television are not synced, you can adjust the delay of the audio output to match the video.

Preset + 5-Band EQ: Sound Mode lets you enjoy the best sound without any special adjustment using factory presets. Standard, News, Music, Cinema, Sport, and Game are preset for optimum sound quality. You can also adjust the TV's sound manually by using the 5-band EQ (100Hz, 300Hz, 1khz, 3khz, 10kHz).

Audio Enhancements: The LG LED-LCD TV offers various audio adjustments to enhance your overall experience.

  • Virtual Surround Plus: Virtual Surround Plus delivers a simulated surround sound effect with just the TVs two speakers.
  • Clear Voice II: Clear Voice II enhances and amplifies the frequency range of the human voice to help keep dialogue audible when background noise swells.
  • Smart Sound Mode: Smart Sound Mode provides optimized sound adjusted for each source input. Smart Sound Mode automatically adjust Preset/5-Band EQ, Virtual Surround, and Clear Voice II.
  • Auto Volume: Auto Volume makes sure that the volume level remains consistent whether you are watching a commercial or a regular TV program. Because each broadcasting station has its own signal conditions, volume adjustment may be needed every time the channel is changed. This feature allows users to enjoy stable volume levels by making automatic adjustments for each program.

Network/USB Functions

LG LED IS GREAT

Written By CARLO, MANCHESTER, CT on Thursday, July 03, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I replaced a Sony Brvia 40 inch lcd tv with the LG 42 inch led Smart tv. I couldn't be happier. The picture is better and the viewing angle is greater.
Pros:
light, thin, attractive, built-in wi-fi and web access
Cons:
none so far

Really Nice Smart TV

Written By George S., Harrisonburg, VA on Wednesday, June 18, 2014
 
I'm really enjoying my LG Smart TV. It set up easily with a few quirks with the direct TV box. The picture quality is alot better than I've gotten used to and the sound is fine. I'm sure a sound bar would improve it greatly, but it's not in my present budget. The remote is a kick since it's really different from any remote I've ever used. It's fairly intuitive and gets you around TV, web, Netflix, Amazon, etc with a fair amount of ease. I definitely happy with my purchase and with the price and service from Crutchfield.
Pros:
Great picture; interesting and intuitive remote, thin and light, easy to set up.
Cons:
Sound could be improved
