    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
  • AV Mode
    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
  • Clear Voice Technology
    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

          This has to be one of the best TV's that were available at that time. With 3 HDMI inputs, this has been a great addition to our Entertainment System. The picture is way above what I expected & sound through the sound system makes it an Indoor Theater. I will look again in the future for a LG TV every time.

                  Pros: Great picture quality, even when viewing analog CATV channels. Very user-friendly menu system. Cons: After approximately 2-years, the blue power on indicator stopped functioning, however, this does not seem to have negatively impacted the TV's performance otherwise. After approximately 4 years, the remote control started acting funky, even with fresh Alkaline batteries it became necessary to stand no more than 6 feet from TV to get the remote to function properly.

                      Love the TV! Great picture, great sound, great features! However, recently, it has a squealing noise that I have contacted LG about. I am currently awaiting a response from tech service on this issue. I shall revamp this review after hearing from them.

                          This was my first LCD television. At the time, these models were just coming out and extremely pricey. I have not had a single issue with this television, whereas I have had problems with other brand names without near the amount of usage this has. Very proud to still have this television, and continue to watch it on a daily basis.

                              I love my TV. We bought it about 2 years ago. The only issue I have with it is the volume. Sometimes it seems we can't get it to turn up loud enough. But this is a fantastic unit.
