Motion Smoothness*(5.63)*


The LG 37LH30 has some issues with motion smoothness. Photos suffer from some minor blurring. On our color chart, we noticed that bold colors tend to leave behind shadows as they travel around. When we performed the same tests with 1080i input, these issues got even worse.

 

Motion Artifacting*(6.00)*


The TV also had some issues with artifacting. Fine lines will create a shuddering effect. The edges of a box staircase a bit when it moves horizontally. We didn't see any issues with color casting. Overall, there aren't great features to have on your set, but the LG 37LH30 isn't tremendously worse than the average TV.

 

3:2 Pulldown & 24fps*(7.00)*


The 37LH30 had some issues with 3:2 pulldown. Fine striped patterns tend to flash, which is an eyesore. There were also some minor instances of a crawling effect manifesting on patterns.

The TV supports 24 fps playback.
