  • The back of the TV contains the majority of the inputs*

Output Ports*(2.0)*


All of the output ports are found on the back: there's a digital audio out optical port and a set of analog audio out ports. These are the standard output ports.

Other Connections*(0.0)*


The 32LG40 doesn't support any other connections, like wireless or Bluetooth.

Media*(0.0)*


The 32LG40 doesn't have any other media input outlets, such as an SD card slot. It should be noted that, while LG claims the TV has a USB port, it's for service only. Plugging in a memory stick or peripheral won't do anything.

Placement*(7.0)*


The 32LG40's port placement is pretty good. The ports on the left side are very accessible, and most of the ports on the back can be accessed with relative ease. The TV can swivel slightly as well, which aids in reaching the ports around back. The ports are pretty well labeled and organized.
