Product Details

LG 42" Black LED 1080P HDTV, Model 42LN5400

Getting the superior image quality of an LED TV doesn't have to be an expensive affair, thanks to the LG 42LN5400 LED TV. Part of the LG 5400 series, this 42-inch LED TV takes advantage of technologies from more advanced sets, and puts them into a model perfect for the average user looking for a great viewing experience.

The heart of the 42LN5400 is the LED backlit panel, featuring a full HD 1080p picture. LED backlighting produces a picture with better brightness and colors than a traditional LCD television, so your favorite movies will have clarity like never before. LG's proprietary Triple XD Engine helps reduce noise and increase contrast, for cinema-like picture quality. For sports fans and gamers, TruMotion 120Hz technology greatly reduces motion blur, keeping the picture sharp when the onscreen action speeds up.

LG understands that some people just want to enjoy watching TV, without worrying about tech specs or fiddling with settings. To that end, the 42LN5400 LED TV comes equipped with Picture Wizard II, a simple on-screen calibration system. This easy-to-use feature uses images and diagrams to guide you through a calibration process, giving you the best picture output without needing a PhD in technology. An LG SIMPLINK connection lets your other LG devices communicate via a single cable, allowing easy system integration and control. And because it's ENERGY STAR qualified, the LG 42LN5400 can end up saving you money compared to an older TV.

            Very fast delivery and free shipping is the best. I have bought our last 5 televisions from Abt and have not bee disappointed. This one replaced a 40" Sony Bravia 720p that came with our 5th wheel. The difference in picture quality is like night and day. Great Buy!

              I purchased this for my son to use with his new play Station 4 and it has performed flawlessly. Often times you get pixelating with fast moving games and the picture quality is not that good. Nice and bright picture even in low light conditions as well. There is a slight glare however if there is a light directly above the TV. For the money you can't go wrong with this unit.

                  This is the first flat panel TV I've owned. I'm very satisfied overall. ABT delivery/pickup service was great. The sound is fair which I hear is common among flat panel TV's and is why I purchased the sound bar. I was able to wean myself off cable TV for local/basic channels with the HDTV antenna, and the streaming player helps for other content.
