The LG 42LE4500 brings the advantages of LED back lighting to a whole new class.
At the heart of the LG 42LE4500 is a stunning LED screen. Backlit LED TVs produce a shaper, more detailed picture with greatly enhanced contrast. Take a look at the plasma-equalling contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1 and you'll see what we mean. The result is images that, when combined with 1080p Full HD definition, are richly detailed and incredibly life-like. This edge LED lit TV from LG doesn't stop there, either. With a response time of just 3 m/s the 42LE4500 is one of the fastest to respond in its class. This makes it more responsive when gaming and also helps reduce motion blur - especially with fast moving sport and films.
As usual, we would always recommend using a separate home cinema system with a TV of this size but if you do use the LG's built-in sound system you might be pleasantly surprised. Using an invisible speaker system with Clear Voice II and LG's Infinite Sound, the 42LE4500 sounds crisp and precise. Furthermore, the 10w + 10w power output gives it enough drive to fill larger rooms, too.
In terms of connections, the 42LE4500 has everything you'd expect from a quality 42 inch LED TV. Four HDMI sockets allow for the connection of 4 High Definition sources, such as an HD-TV box, PS3, HD camcorder and Blu-ray. In addition to all this, the 42LE4500 boasts a USB connection. This lets you watch digital media from your camera or phone and is even compatible with HD DivX.
As well as its life-like picture, the 42LE4500's LED technology allows for a super-slim casing. At just 35.3mm it's over a half the thickness of conventional LCD TVs, making it even more attractive whether switched on or off. Added to this, the slim frame and gloss black finish give the LG an air of sophistication that the brand has become renowned for.
For a picture that's bigger, brighter and simply better than the rest at this price, take a look at the impressive LG 42LE4500.
