LG 42LW5300 LED LCD 3D HDTV Review

All things considered, for the price you could do a lot worse than bringing this LG 42LW5300 home.

$899.00 MSRP 42 in.


With good color performance and somewhat affordable 3D capability, the LG 42LW5300 is a good buy if you are looking for an entry-level 3D TV at a great performance to cost ratio. The tradeoff? No internet connectivity whatsoever. If you want to stream anything to this set, you're going to have to buy a separate streaming device.
