Item #: 68932L5700
This item is no longer available.
LG's 32LN5700 has more capabilities and features than many 32" TVs. This model uses a "direct-lit" backlight, which means the panel isn't quite as skinny as you find on edge-lit models, but picture contrast is just as impressive. To enhance this set's versatility, LG boosted the speed of the onboard graphics processor for a better gaming experience.
If you're placing a standalone TV in a bedroom, den, or kitchen, the 32LN5700 is a smart choice because it's a Smart TV with Wi-Fi®. Built-in apps give you easy access to loads of entertainment — streamed video from services like Netflix® and Hulu Plus™, music, social networking, and lots more, all without connecting any components. A dual-core processor really speeds up web browsing and app multitasking, while LG's user-friendly TV/web interface makes navigation a piece of cake. You can either use the supplied remote, or download a free app to control the TV with your smartphone via Wi-Fi.

The TV met my expectations
Pros: easy to use remote, good picture quality
I love this tv... The picture quality is great! The blacks are deep dark blacks and lines are crisp and sharp. I installed this tv in my bedroom, the size is perfect. The set up was a snap, very self explanatory and easy to use. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for this size of a tv this model. Will probably buy another one in a larger size to replace my main tv soon.
Pros: Sharp images, easy to understand set up and remote control activities
More than satisifed with the LG TV from Crutchfield. We picked this rather smll size (32") to fit an old but elegant TV cabinet with doors. The LG fits wonderfully. fills the cabinet and it looks lice. Aside from the TV performance that was a big plus for us. Now to the TV. Set up was about as trivial as you can make it, and the picture quality is quite astoudning in our opinion compared to other TV''s we have the newest of which is 6 years old. Whatg an improvement in that time. IK would recommend this TV without reservation. FOr the price, I beleive most anyone would be more than satisified.
Pros: Picture quality better than I expected without moving up to 120 hz refresh. Easy set up. solid stand once attached
Cons: None so far.

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 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).
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.
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.
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.
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 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 preset, user, and expert adjustment of the television's picture settings.
Advanced Picture Control: Advanced Picture Control allows you to adjust some of the advanced video features of the LG LED-LCD TV.
Picture Options: Additional picture options are available to enhance your viewing experience.
Sound Optimizer: This function optimizes the sound based on the environment in which the TV is installed (Normal, Wall-Mount, Stand).
Preset + 5-Band EQ: 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. 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.
AV Sync: If the video and sound of the television are not synced, you can adjust the delay of the audio output to match the video.
Audio Outputs: The LG LED-LCD TV offers an optical digital output and 3.5mm headphone jack.
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.
Dual Core Processor: LG's dual core processor technology delivers the speed you need for faster web browsing, instant access to internet content, and quicker application processing. The dual core processor also supports multi-tasking, so you can watch your favorite shows and check social networks at the same tim
Wired or Wireless Network Connection: This TV can be connected to your home network via its Ethernet (LAN) port or built-in WiFi. If both options are available in your network, the wired Ethernet connection is recommended. Either network connection offers access to your PC movie/photo/music files, LG Apps, and the Internet.
