LG 42" 1080p 120Hz Edge-Lit LED LCD Television - 42SL90

LCD LED technology for incredible picture quality in a design that sets a new standard in style. The SL90 features a seamless, edge-to-edge panel and an ultra-slim cabinet depth for a look that's sure to turn heads -- whether your TV is on or off.

Features:

  • Smart Energy Saving
  • Single Layer Design: A seamless, edge-to-edge panel of glass over an ultra-slim bezel highlights a sleek, elegant design that will make everything else seem just ordinary.
  • TruMotion 120Hz: You can see clearly now! By responding quickly to color changes, TruMotion technology combined with LG's unique IPS panels, virtually eliminates motion blur and improves picture quality at different viewing angles.
  • Full HD 1080p Resolution: Enjoy twice the picture quality of standard HDTV with almost double the pixel resolution. See sharper details like never before. Just imagine a Blu-ray disc or video game seen on your new LG Full HD 1080p TV.
  • Invisible Speaker System: Fine tuned by renowned audio expert Mr. Mark Levinson, LG TVs utilize a unique speaker system that delivers a clean, polished look and enhanced audio with a wider sound field.
  • LED Mega Contrast 3,000,000:1: This series employs an edge-lit LED system which produces superior image quality, with deeper blacks and a wider color gamut, and allows for an ultra-slim design with a 3,000,000:1 Mega Contrast Ratio.
  • Intelligent Sensor: Automatically optimizes the picture to the lighting conditions in the room for a personalized and enjoyable viewing experience.
  • Picture Wizard: Enables easy self-calibration by providing on-screen reference points for key picture quality elements like black level, color, tint, sharpness and backlight levels. Now you can take the guesswork out of picture adjustments and you won't need to purchase separate calibration tools.
  • Clear Voice II: Automatically enhances and amplifies the sound of the human voice frequency range to help keep dialogue audible when background noise swells. Can also be personalized with a new 12-step adjustment level.

      I purchased the LG for the LED lighting and slim, attractive design to use in a smaller home theater set up. After setting up the TV and hours of tweaking, the picture was very grainy and somewhat out of focus. HD sources were an improvement, however, picture quality still resides at the lower end of LCD TV's. I took the unit back to abt and customer service was fantastic in helping me exchange for a Samsung LED with backlighting. The cost difference was well worth the upgrade IMHO. [...]

                  I love this TV. It looks great whether it is off or on. The picture quality is spectacular, and it does a great job even with standard definition inputs. The controls are easy to understand and use, and having two remote controls is genius. I am very pleased.

                        I’v purchased lots TV sets before. Comparing to their functions, I think there are no difference among them; however, I changed my mind after I bought LG LED TV. This amazing invention gave me a totally new experience ever before. Not only because it’s outlooking ,but also the esay operating for the old man in my family. Now we all enjoy the fun LDC brought us. Thanks to the LG company produced such a high quality product which can be my best purchase ever.

                              This 42LH90 is my first venture into HDTV. It really has a fantastic picture. I did lots of research on many sites and this is the one that best met my wants and desires. It is certainly the best picture of any HDTV I considered. And it is very adjustable so I can match it to my viewing preferences -- easily. And it's design is very good. I was a bit tentative at first since reviewers talked about the blue edge, but it isn't the least bit objectionable -- quite subtle. I would have liked an ethernet port and the ability to label channels -- there are so many duplicate channels these days with TV CATV, HDTV, etc. Overall this TV has well exceeded my expectations.

                                  We are happy with our purchase. Liked the eco feature. We still use an antenna (w/booster) and it picks up a lot of DTV stations. Picture is very crisp! It's in a well lit area so LCD is better for us. Would prefer matte over glass as reflection can be a problem though.

HD sources were an improvement, however, picture quality still resides at the lower end of LCD TV's. I took the unit back to abt and customer service was fantastic in helping me exchange for a Samsung LED with backlighting. The cost difference was well worth the upgrade IMHO. [...]

                                      We bought a large screen for a small room and it works beautifully. Color, definition, and sound are excellent. The remote works just fine.
