    LG is underrated., August 5, 2010

    This review is from: LG 42LE5400 42-Inch 1080p 120 Hz LED HDTV with Internet Applications (Electronics)

    I had quite an ordeal over the last month attempting to purchase a new HDTV. I was looking in the sub $1000 range, wanted a 40-42″ LED-Lit model and did a lot of research before settling on the Samsung UN40C6300.

    I originally settled for Samsung over LG due to in-store picture comparisons and quite frankly, Samsung’s great reputation over the past years. They were the pioneers of LED edge lighting and for a long time remained king of HDTVs. When my set arrived via Amazon (which was super simple by the way) and I set it up, I was instantly shocked and disappointed. The samsung model had the worst backlight bleeding I have ever seen in any LCD TV/Monitor.. ever.. Upon researching the issue further I discovered that Samsung now outsources panels and I got stuck with a horrible Chineese CN02 panel while the model in the store happened to be using a Samsung Branded IPS panel. I can’t say for sure whether stores always get the better panel for display purposes, but this sneaky bait and switch should be illegal. Needless to say, the viewing angles on the horrible CN02 panel and the awful bleeding (spots the size of softballs scattered through the image). Furious, I set up an immediate exchange with Amazon and went back to researching.

    Digging deep in Amazon’s search, I stumbled across the LG 42LE5400 which was only $4 more then the previous Samsung model. What caught me about this TV over the previous was the following:
    1) Same exact price.
    2) Research indicated NO panel lottery and LG using superior IPS panels.
    3) 2″ Larger Screen
    4) NetCast Apps (Samsung’s only supplies these on higher-end models)
    5) Wider range of inputs including composite-in
    6) Matte screen (Yes glossy looks nicer, but I’d rather not watch TV in a mirror).

    The exchange through amazon was painless and I am always impressed by their policies and understanding. After the horrible Samsung model was dragged away and the new LG panel dropped off, I set it up and was pleased.

    The picture was just as nice as the Samsung in my opinion (though a bit less crisp due to matte screen instead of glossy, but that was to be expected and actually ended up being preferred due to lack of reflections). I confirmed a genuine IPS panel by the orientation of the pixels and the push-test. I cannot comment on the sound since I always use a home theater receiver and have never used the built-in speakers. The Set comes with tons of calibration options, eco-sensors (which I disabled as I found it preferred to darken the screen too much. Why have an LED screen when you dim it down to nothing). Even the lighting on the power and function buttons has a neat animation and full control of turning off pesky logo lighting when watching in the dark, a nice touch.

    The only gripes I have on this panel are the following:
    1) There is some mild backlight bleeding around the top right and bottom left corner. This tends to make blacks in that general area a bit more grey, but nowhere (and I mean nowhere) as bad as the Samsung. I suppose this is just a limitation of Edge-lit panels.
    2) NetCast does NOT include Pandora even though it lists Pandora all over LGs website. I suppose they only include that in their receivers/blu-ray players, a major disappointment. Should be called “NetCast Lite”.

    I really rate this panel a 4.5/5 due to the mild backlight bleeding. I feel more care should be put by all brands regarding this issue, but this panel was much better then others thus why I’m keeping it. I’m also a bit put off by the differences in NetCast.

    Other then that, I’m glad that I finally have this whole fiasco behind me. LG came out of the woodwork for me and blew me away with a far-superior television then the comparable Samsung model with no surprises, tricks and included many extras for the same price range. Unless something goes wrong (or they start getting sneaky with bait-and-switch like Samsung), LG is my new television brand.

    Great unit, but delay lag problematic for video games; audio sync fixable, July 20, 2010

    This is a great TV: awesome picture and features.

    - picture brightness is great: I’m using it in a bright living room (with windows on either side of TV), and the LED screen is bright enough to watch w/o problem.

    - overall features great: Assume I’ve gushed on about the picture quality, the number of inputs (including several on the side for easy access), the neat ‘video mute’ feature (under energy saver) so I can play a music CD on my DVD player and not have to see the DVD’s stupid music screen, and so on. (Hmm, I guess I could play mp3s on a thumb drive directly from the tv itself; I haven’t tried that yet.)

    - Audio sync problem fixed via firmware: As others have mentioned, after 45min-1hr, the audio became noticeably out of sync from the picture; this seemed to be equally true for all inputs. It wouldn’t get *worse* after more time, but it was bad enough that it looked dubbed. My initial hack was to switch to a different input then switch back to the program, and it would re-sync. However, after upgrading the firmware via the internet this problem disappeared. A few notes:
    ~ getting the internet connected took me a bit; even though DHCP should have happened at plug-in, I had to turn my wireless hub off/on in order to get the TV to get its IP address;
    ~ In order to trigger the firmware update, I had to press ‘netcast’ or ‘widgets’ on the remote; I think it was at that point that the TV automatically sought out the update.
    ~ it took two firmware updates in a row to reach the most recent version (6.0.something, I think).

    - Noticeable delay lag for video games: about a tenth of a second or even a bit more (after some measurements and calculating). This is acceptable for many games, but for Wii Music every note I play is off beat, and for Dance Dance Revolution a perfect step scores between “great” and “good”. (This is a lag between when the signal is received and when it actually gets displayed — it doesn’t matter for normal TV since you’d never notice if your entire movie is shifted back 0.1s. N.B. “Delay lag” is *not* related to “pixel response time”.)
    ~ [Delay lag on other models: I dragged my Wii Music down to Best Buy and tried it on several similar models I was considering. The Samsung LEDs I tried also had ~0.10s lag; Sony Bravia LEDs had ~0.06s lag (still noticeable); no noticeable lag on LCD Viera or Sharp Aquos *LCD*, but (weirdest part) the Sharp Aquos *LED* did have lag (~0.10s). All the models I tried were 40-46"; most were 120Hz. I hope all the time I spent measuring helps out somebody else!]

    This is for a 42″ LG5400; 2010.Jul.15.

    Picture quality is good but Wireless Ready feature is useless, August 30, 2010

    So far, the picture quality is good to me, who never had LCD or LED tv before. So anything better than CRTV is kind of a “wow” to me. So, I dont want to write too much about picture quality.

    There is one thing I felt betrayed about. There is nowhere in the product description tells that the “Wireless Ready” feature works if and only if one uses USB wireless adapter made by LG and no other USB wireless adapter. I purchased this “Internet Ready” TV with a hope that I would use a different wireless USB adapter that can be purchased for just $15. Now, I am shocked to learn that I will have to use only LG adapter that one can buy for about $80 in amazon.

    So, when you purchase this product,keep in mind that you will have to spend another 80 bucks to make Netcast and netflix work. Although other option is to hook your computer to the TV by HDMI or AVI.

    I hope this review help you make informed decision.
