Our take on the LG 42LK530

by Steve Kindig
LG

Advantages of LCD TVs?

Super-popular LCD TVs offer bright, detailed images and thin, lightweight panels. Many LCDs have anti-glare screens that cut down on reflections, so they're a great choice for brighter rooms. Unlike plasmas, LCDs come in smaller screen sizes to fit in a kitchen, office, bedroom or den. For the clearest picture with fast-moving sports and action movies, look for LCDs with 120Hz or 240Hz blur reduction.

By displaying full 1080p picture resolution, the 42LK530 lets you see every bit of detail in your high-definition TV shows, Blu-ray movies, and video games. And sports fans will love the way LG's TruMotion 120Hz processing tackles motion blur without losing the sizzle of high-speed action.

LG's latest TVs give you more web access
The 42LK530 is an Internet-ready TV, and LG's NetCast™ feature brings some of the best online video sources directly to your television. You can watch movies from your Netflix® Instant Queue, or choose from over 3,000 high-def on-demand titles from Vudu®, all from the comfort of your sofa. If you have a wireless network in your home, just add LG's Wi-Fi® USB adapter to enjoy all that online entertainment without running a network cable to your TV.

Plenty of high-def connections
Several high-def inputs are distributed on the back and side panels, including three HDMI inputs and two component video inputs. Connect a Blu-ray player, an HD satellite or cable box, and a high-def video game console.
