Audio Quality*(6.0)*


The speakers on the LG 32LH20 did a reasonable job. Audio was clear, without any distortion, but it did lack a bit of depth. The simulated surround sound feature added a slight amount of depth, but it wasn't very noticeable. For people who aren't audiophiles the 32LH20's built-in speakers should be fine. Those who really need high quality audio will want to invest in a set of external surround sound speakers.

 

Menu Interface*(7.0)*


The LG 32LH20's menu interface is the same as we've seen on other LG televisions. The first interface you see when you press the menu button is an array of six icons on the screen that give you access to six different menu interfaces.

  • When you first enter the menu you get this top-level interface. *

Selecting one will take you to a more familiar tabbed interface with the menus arrayed along the left and the menu options on the right.

  • The picture menu on the 32LH20 offers expert controls._ *

The LG 32LH20's picture menu is particularly well equipped, with advanced options allowing you to control things like gamma, and directly control RGB. There are also two 'expert' presets, giving advanced users access to features that most regular users probably won't need. The other menus available are Channel, Audio, Time, Option and Lock.

 

Manual*(6.0)*


The LG 32LH20 ships with two manuals, one thinner paper version that helps you setup the television. If you need more information, you'll need to access the complete manual on the included CD. This electronic version of the manual is very complete, with informationa bout all of the televisions features. You can find the LG 32LH20's manual online here.
