TV Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The LG 42-LN540V 42" LED TV offers high-definition picture and a range of high-quality entertainment and usage features in a cleanly-designed black frame.

High-resolution LED screen

With Full HD 1920 × 1080p picture resolution, this 42” LG TV delivers amazing picture clarity and rich, vibrant colours that will enhance all your films and TV programmes.

The high pixel count radically improves picture quality – on standard definition TVs there are just over 400,000 pixels, but HD can offer over two million, giving it an amazingly life-like appearance.

Eco-friendly as well as high-definition, the 42-LN540-V 42" LED TV is edge-lit for a sharper, fuller-looking picture with impressive contrast ratio and naturally smooth on-screen motion with a refresh rate of 100 Hz.

Enjoy up to five times the sharpness and detail of standard definition and twice the detail levels of 720p HD Ready TVs for definitive home entertainment. Full HD television is the only way to completely experience the full potential of HD gaming and Blu-ray content, taking you closer than ever to the action.

Free access to high-grade entertainment

Brace yourself for free high-definition TV entertainment thanks to the Freeview HD tuner built into the LG 42-LN-540V Full HD TV. You’ll enjoy the best of BBC, ITV and C4 in gorgeous high resolution.

Freeview is an exciting collection of shows and channels that will keep you glued to your screen and talking about long afterwards. Up to 50 digital TV channels and 24 radio stations are yours free of a subscription fee, and many channels are now available in incredible high definition with Freeview HD.

A big step up from standard definition Freeview, Freeview HD ramps up your viewing experience for exciting, high-quality TV watching.

A TV with clever functions

Enhancing the environmentally-friendly nature of the LG 42LN-540V 42” HD LED TV is fitted with an Intelligent Sensor, which automatically controls the brightness, contrast and colour of your TV picture, cleverly reacting to the lighting in the room to deliver the finest image quality, while protecting against eyestrain and cutting down on wasted energy.

Three HDMI input allow you to connect up a range of high-definition devices, be it your games console, Blu-ray player or home cinema system. You’ll truly experience an HD experience with this brilliant connective facility.

The TV also offers DivX HD playback, so you can hook up your digital camera, MP3 player or flash memory drive to the USB 2.0 port to display and enjoy your most recent photographs, music collection or high-def DivX films.

Rounding out its connective flexibility, there’s a trusty SCART port, a component video input and a composite video input (shared with the component jack) that enable you to connect all manner of peripheral devices, from retro games consoles to DVD players and compatible cameras and camcorders.

Enjoy the finer things in home entertainment with the LG 42-LN540V Full HD 42" LED TV, boasting superior picture quality and intelligent functionality for a device that’s as efficient as it is engaging.
