Tour & Design

**Front**

Even though the 42LH20 doesn't have the specs of some of LG's other televisions, it still has the same glossy, black bezel design that offers an elegent, stylish look. No controls or labels are located on the front of the TV, except for the LG logo at the bottom of the frame.

**Back**

The back of the 42LH20 doesn't have too many ports, but it has all the essentials. Just don't expect to hook up more than a few media devices to the television.

The back of the 42LH20 has all of the TV's ports.

**Sides**

The right side of the 42LH50 has a strip of on-TV controls with white labeling. The left side of the TV doesn't have anything—not even an easy-access port setup.

The on-TV controls are on the right side of the TV.

Stand/Mount

The 42LH90 uses a stand that looks similar to the one found on larger LG models. The stand has a rounded front and is coated in black gloss. The TV can be mounted, but all the ones on display at CES used their provided stands.

**Aesthetics**

The 42LH20, as with all LG TVs, has a strong aesthetic. The smaller models particularly have appeal due to their sleek style and tiny frames. People looking for a smaller screen TV to display in a prominent area will likely be drawn to the design of the LH20 series. The panel isn't nearly as thin as LG's LHX series, but it still offers a relatively slim depth.
