Input Ports*(4.5)*


The LG 32LH20 has ports located only on the back of the television. Here you will find two HDMI inputs, the RF input for antenna or cable, one component and one compsite video input with associated analog audio inputs. You will also find a VGA input for connecting the television to your computer, along with a 3.5mm audio input for connecting computer audio to the TV. There are also two service ports on the back. Missing is an S-video input, which we're finding many manufacturers are leaving off newer televisions.

Output Ports*(1.0)*


The only output port on the LG 32LH20 is the optical audio out found on the back of the television. Unlike most HDTVs there is no analog audio out, although we are finding that newer televisions are leaving this option out in greater numbers.

 

Other Connections*(0.0)*


There are no additional connectivity options on the LG 32LH20.

 

Media*(0.0)*


The LG 32LH20 does not have any media connetivity features like a USB port or memory card reader.

 

Placement*(7.5)*


All of the ports on the LG 32LH20 are located on the back, in a large grouping just right of center when viewing the back. The ports are well labeled, but we do wish that there had been some ports arranged on the side of the television for easier access. That said the 32LH20's small size and rotating stand do make getting to the ports on the back relatively easy, but if you have it mounted on a wall they will be much more difficult to access.
