Description

The LH3000 series provides HD Ready 1080p picture resolution, Energy Saving Recommended, Twin XD Engine, 24p Real Cinema, Invisible Speakers with SRS TruSurround XT, as well as AV Modes for Cinema, Sports, and Games�in short, everything you need to bring the HD experience home.

HD-Ready 1080p
LG HD Ready 1080p (Full HD) provides 1920 x 1080p picture resolution delivering incredible picture clarity and vibrant colours. You'll see up to 5 times the picture clarity and detail in comparison to standard definition and double the detail compared to HD Ready 720p. 1080p television is the only way to fully experience the true potential of high definition gaming and blu-ray which takes you even closer to the action.

Invisible Speaker
LG's Invisible Speaker System has been fine-tuned by world-renowned audio expert Mark Levinson for an increased sweet spot. Breaking through the fixed idea that speaker grills must be exposed, this system provides a fully realized sweet spot, and powerful, realistic sound with speakers integrated into the panel design.

Freeview
All LG TVs come with built-in Digital Freeview making sure you're ready for the digital switch-over. With LG TVs you'll have access to over 40 Freeview TV and radio channels, 8 day on-screen guide and access to digital interactive services.

HDMI 1.3 Deep Color / 3xHDMI
HDMI 1.3 supports 30-bit, 36-bit, and 48-bit colour depth. HDMI 1.3 eliminates on-screen colour banding for smooth tonal transitions and subtle gradations. It also enables increased contrast ratio, and represents many times more shades of grey between black and white.

Wouldn't say 'crap picture' out of the box, but the built in calibrator helps make it look better.


And here's what I post on most of these LG deals, haha -

I posted this info about enabling DivX/MKV on another deal, enjoy -



Don't forget you can enable DivX and MKV (no DTS) video via USB by rolling back the firmware and making the changes in the service menu. NTFS is supported too, so large video files are no problem (link at bottom has info about enabling without rolling back the firmware, with the use of a programmable remote).

Grabbed this from a thread on AVForums -

HOW TO DOWNGRADE FIRMWARE AND ACTIVATE THE USB

DOWNGRADE (read first)

ok , create a folder on your USB stick called LG_DTV and put the 3.15 firmware in that folder (dont put another folder in the folder just the firmware itself) and Insert USB stick into TV, (if it doesnt read it automatically) then press MENU and choose OPTION (but dont press OK) but press the FAV button 7 TIMES to get upgrade screen on and choose firmware to upgrade / OK.... - failing that, repeat but press '7' 7 times instead of 'fav' which will get the basic upgrade screen on
- downgrade the firmware and restart TV

ACTIVATE USB
hold down OK on remote and OK on the TV for about 5 secs (be sure to point remote at TV) then it will ask for password - press 0000 and it will take you into service menu = go to no. 2. TOOLS OPTION 3 and change JPEG to 1 and DIVX to HD (dont change ANYTHING else or you will break TV and NO bluetooth doesnt work unless your TV comes with it)

UPGRADE

following the downgrade guide but put the 3.40 firmware into the LG_DTV folder (deleting the old one) and insert into TV and upgrade, as the firmware is newer than in the TV it may read the USB stick without having to press FAV or 7 seven times...





Just have to find out where to get the firmwares from now.

EDIT:
3.15 FW

Useful site I just found

Currys (Hedge End) have this on offer for £449 (in there yesterday 14/5).
#4
You can also 'hack' the USB with a universal (ie one for all, harmony etc) remote, which doesn't involve messing with the firmware - it just lets you access a 'hidden' service menu therefore letting you turn the USB on.

Pretty good deal for a 1080 hd tv Hooot

Goddang! looking at the review of the LH5000 model at WhatHifi (http://whathifi.com/Review/LG-42LH5000/) (they dont have a review of the 3000) and the Samsung LE40B551A, which is a better set? There both (after qudico etc) the same price.....
Thanks!
#7
The LH3000 is slightly better than the LH5000 looking at the reviews on various sites.

Older model yes, but better than the newer one, plus it has more HDMI connections.

Got one midweek and really pleased with it so far. Just got to hack the USB ;D

I'm tempted to get this, is it true LCD's are crap when the screen size is 32"+?

going by jukkie's post above i'd say it allows you to attach a usb drive with divx or mkv files on it to play straight to the tv

dont believe the scaremongering nonsense
#11
Dang I just brought the 32inch version of this tv from Tesco outlet for £275.

But at least i got the 10bit IPS panel not the cheaper 8bit AOU panel.

Be careful there has been very bad motion issues with the AOU panel in the newer tv's.

You can check the panel make by looking into the back panel vent to the left of the power socket.

If it is a IPS it will say on the sticker LG IPS

Or there is one other way to check if you press your finger against the panel it will change colour if it is AOU panel. (however i have never tested this)

I bought this TV just under a year ago and I am very happy with it. Picture quality is excellent. Yes, if you stick your face 6 inches away from any large screen TV, it will look a bit blocky, but at normal viewing distances, the picture (and sound) is very impressive.

Admittedly, as my set is nearly a year old it presumably has the older IPS panel, which is reckoned to be marginally better than the latest sets, in some respects.

I've recently hacked the usb port on my set and (apart from anything else) I can now play mpeg videos and view jpeg photos directly from a usb sick, which is very useful, I find (although the photos look a bit too 'vibrant' for my liking - videos look great though and are actually smoother and better than when I have burned them onto a disc and played them via a dvd player).

From what i have read on av forums there are a few issues with the new auo panel such as slightly delayed speech using the tv's speakers, and less colour depth using hdmi and there is also a touch of input lag.

If you don't mind a factory refurb with a 12 month guarantee then you can have it for £409! :thumbsup:

Picked one of these up in Tesco Extra Swindon today for £469.00 - Think it was the last one unless they had some more of the display dvd cases that you take to the till somewhere.
Went to Swindon / Haydon Wick Asda Walmart and they only had a display model there at the more expensive price, got them to ring through to Asda West Swindon and they said the only 42" LG's they had were over £600 so not sure if its an online only deal.
Good product though and voted hot. Only plugged in to check its working and stuff - will set up during the week.

Does this model have 100Hz or 50Hz?

50Hz. But I have an 42LH4000 (which is 100Hz), and I switch it down to 50Hz as I don't like the effect you get from 100Hz LCD TV's.

I was in Tesco Extra in Stoke today and they had loads of the 42LH2000's at this price but not the 3000's.

2000's are only HD Ready

took mine back, was like looking through a dirty window, no amount of tweaking made it look as good as it should. Bought a samsung instead for 30 quid more, am very happy with it

Better late than never I guess :)

"HD Ready" means it'll do 720p which is great if you're only using SkyHD or DVD.
Full HD is 1080p and is obviously much higher resolution. Really only useful today for Blu-Ray discs or if you have a PCTV rig capable of playing 1080p movied.

The number refers to the number of horizontal lines in the picture.
For reference, regular PAL TV has 625 iirc but not all of these are "visible" since some are used for sync, etc. so for PAL you get 576 lines. A VHS cassette will give you 240 lines.
