LG 42LV5500 LED LCD HDTV Review
The positives on the LG 42LV5500 LED LCD HDTV definitely outweigh the handful of flaws.
The LG 42LV5500 ($1099 MSRP) is packed with a lot of fun features that may sound good, but can distract from what a TV is supposed to do: deliver a good picture. Fortunately, the color performance cannot be beat. The poor implementation of local dimming certainly drew our ire, but the positives on this TV definitely outweigh the handful of flaws.
