LG has often put out plenty of good televisions in the past. Some better than others, of course, as the story so often goes, but the LG 47LH90 will not be anything of a disappointment. In fact, it’ll be one of LG’s better low-end large televisions (the big stuff, as far as I’m concerned, really doesn’t start until around forty inches.
The LG 47LH90 is a forty seven inch 1080p LED telelvision that offers the XD Image Processing Engine, 24p Real Cinema mode, a two-way twenty watt speaker system with SRS TruSurround and Dolby Digital, along with five selectable sound modes, Clear Voice II technology, four HDMI inputs, two component video inputs, one component A/V input, two composite video inputs, one RF input, one PC port, and one optical digital audio.
While the picture was about as good as you’d expect–not the best one I’ve seen, but still pretty darn good by any stretch–the sound was the real surprise. Twenty watts AND SRS TruSurround is not a combination I see very often. And the results of that combination are pretty high quality. I really liked the sound quality on this one, and even better, there’s more than enough room here for new and old components alike. And the price isn’t even prohibitive, either–Best Buy wants twelve hundred bucks for it, though that is a sale price down from two thousand bucks.
The LG 47LH90 is a fantastic television, and should cover just about anything you’d want to use it for. You can get bigger, cheaper, and bigger AND cheaper, but you’ll get really solid quality out of this one.
