Our take on the LG 22LS3500

Need a compact high-quality TV for your kitchen, office, or bedroom? LG's 22LS3500 is a great one, due in part to its LED backlight. One of the biggest advantages LED has over a fluorescent backlight is superior picture contrast — it allows the screen to display a wider range of gray tones from deep black to brilliant white. So, an LED-backlit TV is a smart choice for rooms where the lights are on while you're watching — especially the overhead lights that are common to kitchens. The 22LS3500's picture won't wash out under these conditions. LED backlights are famously energy-efficient, too.

22" LG 22LS3500 television

Pete L. from Thompson, CT on 1/7/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We had bought a 47" LG LED TV for our living room about a year ago and are very pleased with the picture quality, etc. When replacing our old "kitchen" TV we figured we'd stay with LG, even though this model had only 720p resolution. When initially hooked up to a pig-tail (analog) off our cable the picture was noticeably poorer in quality than the large set. We opted to get another HD box from the cable company (5$/month) and the picture quality now rivals the 1080p set. Even though we have only had the set for a short time, we are pleased with this model. Thanks, Crutchfield.

Perfect Size For The Bedroom or Kitchen

Geoff from MN on 11/27/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I rated the LG 22LS3500 only four stars since I've not owned it very long. LG put a bit more effort into the built-in speakers compared to other brands. This makes it ideal for a small bedroom where a separate sound system is not practical. The picture is very nice with all the controls you'll ever need, although I must confess that I haven't run a High Def signal through it yet. The picture is really very nice with just a standard definition satellite receiver hooked up. I cant speak to the tuner either, but I do know that an external antenna is your best bet. Direct line-of-sight if possible. All in all, a very good buy for the money, if it holds up. There are certainly cheaply made brands out there, but this LG seems to be a notch or two above them.




PETERMAZ from NEW YORK , N.Y. on 9/26/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this LG for my kitchen it has a great picture and acceptable sound. I was able to squeeze 3 more inches over the 19 inch Insignia that was there before. The bezel is narrow compared to the other brands except for Samsung which also has a small bezel. I have a Samsung 55 inch in my living room so I did not want the remotes to collide with each other. I am very pleased with my purchase, it was delivered within 2 days of order.

Pros: Great picture, compact, loud and clear volume, looks great.

Cons: Side viewing just ok.

  • Intelligent Sensor: Let the TV do the adjustments for you. Intelligent Sensor automatically optimizes the picture to the lighting and color conditions in the room for a more enjoyable viewing experience. The LG LED-LCD TV's Intelligent Sensor automatically optimizes the picture to the lighting and color conditions in the room for a more enjoyable viewing experience. Unlike other sensors which can only sense brightness of ambient light, LG's "Intelligent Sensor" uses 4,096 sensing steps to evaluate its surroundings.

The result is a picture optimized for its surroundings, more pleasing to watch and which can also save up to 50% in power consumption.
  • Presets: Easy to use factory presets for picture mode settings include Standard (provides optimum viewing for general use), Vivid (maximizes the effect of the video by strengthening the contrast/brightness/color/sharpness), Cinema (optimizes video for watching videos), Sport (optimizes video images for dynamic action scenes by emphasizing colors such as white/green/blue), Game (provides fast response speed for fast gaming system).
