LG 42LK520 42-Inch 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV Customer Review

Updated on October 6, 2011

Is this the best LCD TV available?

This hub has a look at the LG 42LK520 42-Inch 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV. We review the pros, cons, technical specifications, and customer reviews of this LCD TV. Before we delve into these details, let us first review the implications of getting a LCD TV.

Why did you choose a LCD TV? And not a Plasma or LED? First, let's make sure you are getting the right type. In terms of overall picture quality, Plasma TVs tend to have an edge due to their technology. However, the quality differences are not so significant. When it comes to fast-paced images such as sports and video games, you may want to have a Plasma TV, because there is a lower likelihood that you will experience motion blur. That said, LCD TVs tend to work better for functional usage. For example, if you want to hook up your laptop or gaming device then a LCD or LED TV will more or less display a better picture quality. With LCD and LED TVs, you also do not experience light glares. Therefore, plasma TVs are only suited for people who have rooms that can be turned dark. So now that you have the general idea of the plasma vs lcd vs led debate, let us have a look at the LG 42LK520 42-Inch 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV.

Firstly, the LG 42LK520 42-Inch 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV is equipped with TruMotion 120Hz Technology. What does it do? Simply said, it will improve the TV's ability to display less motion blur for sports, video games and high speed action movies. This TV model is also energy star approved. Therefore, this TV will consume less energy when used. On that note, Plasma TVs tend to consume a higher amount of electricity than LCD or LED TVs. Therefore, if you care about the environment (or simply want a cheaper electricity bill) then you may want to consider this TV. The picture wizard II feature enables the TV to automatically calibrate the contrasts and colors. For example, if the scene is really dark then you will get to see finer details with this automatic feature.

So what did customers have to say about the LG 42LK520 42-Inch 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV? One customer commented that the improvements in dynamic contrast was noticeable when the TV was compared to earlier models. Also, he commented that this TV provides clear HD pictures. You may even hook this TV up with a Blue ray DVD player if you wish to.

Another commented that it was great value for money. It was also easy to set up (took less than twenty minutes). He also appreciated the simplicity of the TV design. With no clunk feature, he was able to place the TV seamlessly into his living room without having it stand out. Unfortunately, he also commented that the remote control looked cheap and boring. Therefore, if you are a remote junkie then you might want to equip yourself with a better remote control. So what do you think about the LG 42LK520 42-Inch 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV? Would you purchase it? Let us know.
