Best Widescreen TV in Flat Panel LCD HDTVs: LG 47LH90
The LG 47LH90 is a promising contender in the lineup of flat panel LCD HDTVs, which also comes with excellent shadow detailing, and overall black-level performance, just like the Panasonic TC-PV10 series.
It has extensive picture adjustments, and a classy matte screen more than capable of handling the bright lighting superbly. As far as connectivity is concerned, you can’t simply expect more from the LG 47LH90 with its PC input and four HDMI input slots (again same as that of Panasonic TC-PV10 series).
Coming to its design, a sleek glossy-black frame, which is elegantly rounded, encompasses its matte screen, while its semitransparent, blue-tinted stand stalk is also one of its attractive features, which gives a strong support to the panel above the swivel stand.
The best thing about the exterior appearance of the LG 47LH90 is its chrome-edged, illuminated power indicator that has "L E D" inscribed towards the bottom-left portion, along the edge, and a tiny LG logo.
Coming to its downsides, not only is the LG 47LH90 really expensive (costlier than the Panasonic TC-PV10 series and several other comparable models), but also has very ordinary off-angle performance. You notice some blooming, and the lack of S-Video inputs as well as interactive features is also quite a disappointment.
What’s more, the LG 47LH90 fails to separate dejudder and antiblur processing. It has minimalist looks, but awesome picture clarity, thanks to its accurate color and deep black levels.
Despite all the downsides, as a whole, the LED-backlit LG LH90 series is simply an X-factor in the segment of flat panel LCD HDTVs.
Price Range: $1200 - $1800
Note: The LG 47LH90 is also unavailable currently on Amazon, and it is sold by an independent vendor for around $1250 at the Amazon marketplace.
