Key Features:

  • Full HD 1080p Resolution
  • 15,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
  • 3x HDMI™ V.1.3 with Deep Color
  • Intelligent Sensor
  • AV Mode (Cinema, Sports, Game)

    • Displays HDTV programs in full 1920 x 1080p resolution for a more detailed picture.
    • Unlike other sensors which can only sense brightness of ambient light, LG’s “Intelligent Sensor” uses 4,096 sensing steps to evaluate its surroundings. Using a sophisticated algorithm, the LG processes picture quality elements including brightness, contrast, color, sharpness and white balance. The result is a picture optimized for it’s surroundings, more pleasing to watch and which can also save up to 50% in power consumption.
    • The AV Mode optimizes the picture into Cinema, Sports, and game Mode according to the video and audio content. The viewer has the ability to quickly choose the correct mode for the picture they are viewing.
    • Automatically enhances and amplifies the sound of human voice frequency range to help keep dialogue audible when background noise swells.
  • ISFccc
    • This TV contains the detailed calibrations necessary for professional certification by the Imaging Science Foundation. The resulting ISF “day” and “night” modes will then be accessible by the user to experience the best their LG HDTV has to offer.

Channel Delay sucks

    Comments about LG 52" Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

    I would not buy another LG TV without confirming that they have fixed the delay when you change channels. When you want to hit the recall button to go between two channels there is about a 1-2 second delay so you cannot just go back and forth without missing something. Also had a power supply go bad after about 9 months but I called them and they sent someone out to the house and fixed it (I did not purchase a warranty service plan)

    very satisfied with this tv

    By winsum

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about LG 52" Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

    I bought online, but only after looking at a LOT of TVs in stores. For me, the major selling point for this LG was that the screen is very bright and still has good contrast, making a very nice picture -- I didn't see anything better for anywhere near this price. The PC and USB inputs are very useful bonuses, which are missing from some of the cheaper 52" sets.

    We purchased this for a Hotel Lobby seating area. Our guests love the clarity and sound, and we have caught some employees stopping their work and just standing in front of the TV and enjoying even the Weather Channel!
