LCD TV Buying Guide Commentary
For 2010 LG brings us the local dimming LED backlit LE7500 series. LG's TruLED local dimming technology will improve contrast and color performance when compared to traditionally backlit LCDs or edge lit LED televisions.
The 1080p, 120Hz panel can be confiured for optimum performance with LG's Picture Wizard and Clear Voice II will enhance the sound. We are split on the benefits of high refresh rate technology in LCD televisions, since the 120Hz and 240Hz TVs have hit the market we have found in our reviews that while the technology does indeed reduce motion blur t also imparts other effects to the picture. Most notably it seems to reduce both depth of field and natural motion blur from film sources resulting in a picture that lacks depth and can make such things as cheap background set pieces stand out drastically changing the look of film sources such as movies and broadcast tv shows. AV Mode II gives custom settings and perfomance for multiple sources such as sports, movies and video games. Wireless HD capability will help clean up the spaghetti of cables behind the TV.
LG's NetCast service will allow access to your NetFlix instant queue, Skype video conferencing, Napster, Youtube, VUDU on demand video service and Yahoo! Widgets.
