Because 32" TVs are often chosen for smaller spaces like bedrooms, offices, and kitchens, people may end up watching from a shorter distance than with larger screens. Well, you can sit as close to LG's 32LS3450 as you want — its picture remains beautifully crisp and clear under any conditions. Its LED backlight provides exceptional picture brightness and contrast while using a very small amount of electricity.
Too many people carefully choose their new HDTV then settle for a sub-par picture because the TV's settings for contrast, color, etc. can be hard to find or tricky to use. LG's Picture Wizard II cuts through that confusion with easy-to-use adjustments and a quick self-calibration feature.
Overall great pics and a good buy.

Overall great pics and a good buy.
Simply a fantastic LED TV. At first the image was dark and blurred and the settings were acting odd. THEN we found the proper window to adjust and it instantly became a perfect image. "User Error" as they say. Your tech help service is second to none. Along with the LG quality (we have another LG) it was the very helpful life time tech support that made us want to order (again) from Crutchfield. My old ONKYO receiver came from you guys MANY years ago and your help has been fantastic when I needed it. THANK YOU.
Slim and light TV. It suffers from a lack of inputs and outputs, particularly the lack of an audio output for a soundbar. The TV was free with the purchase of another TV, but would not purchase it otherwise.
Pros: Slim and light, good picture
Cons: Lacks audio outputs
A good picture for the price

Pros: Everything, great comunication, fast shipping. Thanks for the great service.

Direct-Lit LED Technology: Direct-Lit LED backlight technology bridges the gap between lower-cost CCFL (fluorescent) LCD TVs and newer edge-lit LED-LCD TVs. LG's Direct-Lit LED-LCD televisions feature LEDs positioned all the way across the LCD panel's back plane (instead of along the side). Unlike "Full-Array" backlight LED-LCD televisions that also feature LEDs positioned along the LCD panel's back plane, the Direct-Lit LED technology uses fewer LEDs and do not offer local dimming. Since there are fewer LEDs, the LCD panel's back plane must be moved farther away from the screen to provide adequate light coverage across the LCD panel, making the TV much deeper than an edge-lit LED-LCD television. Direct-Lit LED backlight technology offers a better picture and is more energy efficient than previous CCFL (fluorescent) LCD televisions, though it requires a much larger cabinet design than newer edge-lit LED-LCD TVs.
Triple XD Engine: The LG LS3450 series LED-LCD TV utilizes LG's exclusive Triple XD Engine video processing system for optimum picture quality. The Triple XD Engine delivers a dynamic contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 for stunning colors and deep blacks, so the TV's images are crisp, rich, and vibrant.
HDTV Tuner: The TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Digital Cable (QAM) tuners, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.
720p Resolution: The LG LS3450 series LED-LCD TV has a display resolution of 1366 x 768. All of the television's video inputs are displayed at 720p. The LG LED-LCD TV features HDMI, Component, and Composite video inputs.
Picture Size (Aspect Ratio): You can select a different aspect ratio depending on input source (analog broadcasting, digital broadcasting, video input).
Picture Wizard II (Picture Control): This feature lets you adjust the picture quality of the original image. The LG LS3450 series TV's Picture Wizard II (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 auto, preset, and manual adjustment of the television's picture settings.
Picture Improvement Technology (Advanced Control): Advanced Control allows you to adjust some of the advanced video features of the LG LED-LCD TV.
Additional Picture Options: Additional picture options include:
Infinite Surround: Infinite Surround is a patented LG proprietary sound processing technology that delivers immersive 5.1 surround sound with just two front speakers.
Sound Modes: Sound Mode lets you enjoy the best sound without any special adjustment using factory presets. Standard, Music, Cinema, Sport, and Game are preset for optimum sound quality. There is also a User Mode which allows you to adjust the television's Bass & Treble.
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.
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.
Screen Off: You can turn the screen off and only sound is played through the television's speakers.
No Audio Output: This TV does not contain an analog or digital audio output.

The USB storage devices must be formatted as FAT 32 or NTFS file system.
