For a 32 HDTV set with a superb spec, take a look at the LG 32LH4000.
Taking the picture first and the 32LH4000 ticks every box. Want 1080p resolution? Well, the 32LH4000 has it. What about an intelligent light sensor that doesn't just alter the picture to suit lighting conditions but helps save power, too? You guessed it, this impressive LG has that too. To this list you can also add the latest version of LG's XD Engine. The new Twin XD Engine offers faster, more accurate picture processing than ever before with some stunning results to show for it. Match a screen response time of just 5ms with a brightness of 500cd/m2 and contrast ratio of 50,000:1 and it's clear to see that this is a TV that's anything but average. In short, whatever you're watching will be crisp and detailed with superb resolution and the ideal brightness.
As usual, we would always recommend using a separate home cinema system but if you're intent on using the LG's built-in sound system you might be pleasantly surprised. Using an invisible speaker system with Clear Voice II the 32LH4000 sounds crisp and precise. Furthermore, the SRS TruSurround system creates a spacious sound that avoids the typical TV boxiness.
In terms of connections, the 32LH4000 has everything you'd expect plus more besides. Twin rear-mounted HDMI (and one side-mounted) sockets allow for the connection of 3 High Definition sources, such as an HD-TV box, HD camcorder and Blu-ray. In addition to this, the 32LH4000 boasts twin SCART sockets and component connections for your analogue sources. Furthermore, the PC input makes this attractive TV the perfect complement to your home computer. Topping off the wide range of sockets is a digital optical sound output - ideal for connecting this LG 32" LCD TV to your home cinema for a useful upgrade in sound quality.
Featuring a gloss black surround with subtle blue accent and elegant stand, the 32LH4000 looks as good as it performs. Thanks to the latest technology, it's also Energy Saving Recommended. For a 32 inch 1080p LCD TV with an unbeatable spec for the money, the LG 32LH4000 is top of the pops.
