Features:

HD RESOLUTION
High definition television is the highest performance segment of the DTV system used in the US. It’s a wide screen, high-resolution video image, coupled with multi-channel, compact-disc quality sound.

AV MODE
LG HDTVs include 3 AV Modes, preset to optimize picture and sound settings based on “Cinema”, “Sports” or “Game” content. AV Modes can be easily set with a convenient button on the remote control.

CLEAR VOICE TECHNOLOGY
Automatically enhances and amplifies the sound of human voice frequency range to provide high-quality dialogue when background noise swells.

INVISIBLE SPEAKER SYSTEM
LG’s 2008 line of TVs include a unique invisible speaker system, tuned by renowned audio expert, Mr. Mark Levinson. Speakers are embedded in strategic spots behind the front cabinet and use minute vibrations to turn the entire front bezel into the speaker system. The result is a clean, polished look, and enhanced audio by increasing the “sweet spot”, giving a wider and richer sound field.

LG SIMPLINK
Allows for convenient control of other LG SimpLink products using the existing HDMI connection.

      LG service is outstanding.

      Never met a better service organization to replace my original defective LG LCD; from dial up response, standing behind their product on warrantee, to communication & problem resolution.

                For the money, this is an excellent product. The picture is wonderful, and I love being able to change the aspect ratio for different broadcasts. I have had the TV for four months and have discovered all the channels my cable company provides both in low and high definition. I would love to have a blue ray disc player to see high-def movies on this set. The audio output signal to my stereo is at a constant level and does not vary when changing the television speaker volume. It really should be variable so it can be muted with the TV remote.

                    We needed a new TV for our kitchen, and after looking at the pictures and features of several, we decided to try the 26LG30. We had never purchased an LG TV so were somewhat hesitant, but it has proved to be excellent! We have had absolutely no problems with it, the picture and sound are excellent. The tuning and graphics are easy to use and work well. Even though my wife's kitchen chair is very close to it, the picture is still above average. We find the remote works well and is easy to use, also the buttons on the set. The swivel base is VERY handy, and the connections on the back very accessible. We highly recommend it!

                                "I picked this tv up over this past weekend to put in my master bedroom. I had to go to three different stores to find it as they were sold out almost everywhere. Anyhow, got the tv home, hooked it up to my standard def Dish Network receiver and my OTA antenna. HD from my antenna looks unbelievable. The picture on this tv is very good. Colors are bright and the picture is so clear. Even standard def from my dish looks pretty good too.

                                  This TV is the best for the money. The picture can be adjusted to meet the needs of every person watching. The colors are awesome especially when using an HDMI cable versus an analog cable or SD cable. The only problem I have with the TV is the sound which could be due to the location of the speakers
