LG 42CS570 Review
42" 1080p LCD HDTV
by Jack Burden, Reviewer
Though they have moved out of offering large sizes with top tier features in fluorescent backlit LCD televisions, LG is still making some true LCD HDTVs like the 42CS570. This CCFL back lit LCD television has a 1080p, 60Hz LCD panel but it is not 3D nor does it have Smart TV onlie features.
LG's LCD televisions have had good picture quality for the last few years and it gets better with the 2012 models. The CS570 has good contrast and black levels and color quality is realistic and rich. You probably wouldn't expect a picture this good in a value priced model.
Side Angle Viewing
Side angle viewing isn't a strong point in most LCD televisions but LG has outperformed the competition in this regard. The area in front of the screen where the picture retains it's full contrast and color is wider in the CS570 than in most of its competitiors.
