Remote Control


The LG 32LH20 has a small and nondescript remote, in matte black. There's a large directional pad towards the bottom, with volume, channel and number pad arranged above it.

  • The LG 32LH20's remote is small. *

 

In The Box*(7.5)*


The LG 32LH20 ships with a remote, including batteries, a cleaning cloth and both paper and CD manual. The television does require some setup out of the box as you have to connect the display to the stand. This is a simple process and only requires a single person.

 

Aesthetics*(5.0)*


The LG 32LH20 is nothing to shout about from the looks department, but it's not an ugly television either. If you don't mind glossy black you'll have no problem with the 32LH20's looks. There's even a small element of style with the wave-like protrusion for the indicator lights at the bottom right.
