LG 47LG90 review

Friday, March 20th, 2009

After LEDs were being used in TVs it actually benefited the environment by reducing the use of toxic chemicals like mercury and also improving efficiency. Therefore the all new 47 inch LG 47LG90 is the first LCD TV from LG to feature a backlight system that consists of a range of LEDs and the outstanding picture result from this has proved to the best so for from the company. The LED based LCD TV are typically more costlier compared to the fluorescent drives ones but this TV set is also the best budget deal you can find around.

Being alighted on a half moon shape swivel table stand the new 47LG90 is designed with a glossy black frame to match with its rubberized blue material thin strip that accents on its outer edge. The touch sensitive on-display controls of the TV are entrenched in the blue material and it is probably less fingerprint magnet compared to those on the glossy face of Samsung LED TV. You will find the power indicator light locator fixed at the bottom right hand corner of the face of TV which is pleasantly passive and the strip of blue tinted acrylic cut along the bottom edge of the set offers it’s a stylish look.

The LG 47LG90 is well equipped with the typical rear and side input panel layout and it offers a total of 4 HDMI inputs which include RF input, VGA and two component video inputs. Being very usual among HDTVs the audio outputs of 47LG90 include both coaxicalcoaxial and optical digital connections. The rarer still was actually the ability of the TV to pass 5.1 Dolby digital audio from all the connected sources to the compatible A/V receiver. Apart from this the 47LG90 TV is also designed with a serial control port which you can use with home theatre automation products and there is also the side mounted USB port whci hiswhich is compatible with several flash storage devices that include JPEG and MPp3 multimedia files.

The LG 47LG90 is mainly configured for home viewing environment and the picture setup of the set can default to the super bright Vivid preset that adds white outlines to objects and artifacts related to elevated sharpness levels. The standard presets of the TV prove much better for daytime watching which reduced ringing artifacts while also maintains sufficient brightness. Similar to other HDTVs the CinimaCinema preset of LG 47LG90 however came close to matching the detail and colour standards that are used in HD video productions even though its measured colour outputs were slightly oversaturated when compared with a nearly perfect result given by LED lit Samsung TV.

The HD video examinations which include the viewing of satellite video material and Blu-ray were remarkably detailed but with a few disturbing artifacts. The motion performance of LG 47LG90 was among the very best you might have come across in 120 Hz LCD techynologytechnology as the TV almost matched the performance of Samsung A950 with detail scanning enhancing backlight features enabled although the LG 47LG90 TV lacked a few its features.
