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.

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.
