42-inch LG SL80 240 Hz LCD HDTV reviewed, dubbed good buy
Despite the fact that LG Electronics produces some home theater gear with top-notch features, the company still doesn't have the brand equity of Sony, Samsung or Panasonic. The company continues to pump out good product reviews on a consistent basis though; something to keep in mind next time you're looking for a new HDTV or Blu-ray player.
The latest review, of the 1.8-inch thick LG 42SL80, comes to us courtesy of the folks at PCMag.com. The 42-inch set is not only an aesthetic pleaser, but also quite the performer. It has a handy Picture Wizard that helps the average home theater user calibrate the set to perform maximally. It delivers good color quality and 240 Hz refresh, though the latter doesn't cut all of the motion blur common to faster, action-oriented flicks. On the downside, its standard-definition performance is lacking. Its deinterlacing performance isn't earth-shattering either.
Overall, the LG 42SL80 appears to be a solid buy, receiving a score of 4/5 from PCMag.
