LG 55LHX LCD HDTV First Impressions Review
The most impressive aspect of the LG 55LHX is its wireless connectivity features with its media box.
The most impressive aspect of the LG 55LHX is its wireless connectivity features with its media box. It will surely attract people with lots of peripheral media devices and who are concerned about the abundance of cables that comes with them. Since the wireless features are new, it's difficult to say how well everything will actually work once the television is available to consumers—is there really no loss of quality? Is the transmission range actually 30 feet? What is the chance of a dropped signal? Even with all these questions, LG should be commended for its revolutionary concept and intriguing implementation.
The LED backlight and 240Hz refresh are quality features that put the 55LHX into upscale television territory. The 0.98-inch width of the panel is extremely thin and makes the television a splendid looking device as well as a high-level performer. The price and release date of the 55LHX are currently unavailable, but LG reports the TV will likely be open to consumers in late 2009.
