LG 32LG5000 Reviewed

LG 32LG5000The new LG 32LG5000 looks to be a very attractive mid size HDTV. The 32LG5000 has a nice price point of around £525, and it’s design speaks for it’s self. The high gloss black finish with subtle sliver line at the base makes the set look very much at home with highend, high price point HDTVs. The LG 32LG5000 has a 32-inch LCD screen resolution of 1366×768 pixels which is more than enough for a HDTV of this size.

It also supports 1080p/24p from it’s three HDMI 1.3 inputs. 24p support on the set will provide smooth, true 24fps playback of film content for the best viewing. The HDMI 1.3 inputs also support Deep Color encoded content. A very high quoted dynamic contrast ratio of 50,000:1 provides a very good range of colours with deep black levels, while LG’s XD image processing engine does a great job of both upscaling SD contact and accepting full 1080p HD signals. TrustedReviews say, colours are enjoyably intense during a play of Rainbow Six Vegas 2 on the Xbox 360 too, yet tones are also pleasingly natural when watching more ‘naturalistic’ video footage, such as a standard def drama. The 32LG5000 offers far more design and feature appeal than you’ve any right to expect for under £600.

For a very well priced HDTV the LG 32LG5000 also offers a nice selection of video inputs. There are three HDMI 1.3 inputs, along with component, s-video, scart, a PC VGA input, and also digital audio out for an external sound system.
