Today we get a look at the LG 42LK450, which will not be quite as impressive as the Samsung we saw earlier, but will have a distinctive advantage in the pricing department. It’s not too big, it’s not that impressive…it will, however, offer up a good value.
The LG 42LK450 is a forty two inch 1080p LCD television that offers Intelligent Sensor systems to automatically adjust your settings according to the ambient lighting levels in the room, Picture Wizard II to give you a bit more control over making those very same adjustments, SIMPLINK connectivity that lets you control all your HDMI-enabled devices via the television’s remote, two ten watt speakers, two component video inputs, one USB ports and three HDMI inputs.
You can see what I mean, right off. There’s not much here in the way of bells or whistles. Your older components will do all right here, and so will your newer stuff, but there’s no room here immediately for streaming video, which means this sucker’s going to be obsolete before too much longer, in all likelihood. But the picture does look pretty good, and though the audio isn’t anything fantastic, it’s easily augmented by most any off the shelf home theater system.
But like I said, its saving grace is its impact on your wallet. You can get one of these on Amazon for $495.42, which is actually pretty cheap for a forty two inch television.
If you’re looking for simple, inexpensive, and you don’t mind that there isn’t much going on here with this, but you still want a decent picture, you’ll get along nicely with the LG 42LK450.
