The LG 42LV4400 is fairly light, generating it simple to setup by oneself. The stand appears sturdy adequate, but a little extra weight would happen to be comforting. The stand doesn’t offer you any tilt and does not swivel also nicely. The inputs are…streamlined: there’s 1 component input and no composite inputs besides; no dvi. The three HDMI inputs are ample though and the USB port is usually a great addition. The buttons on the Tv will not be in the most hassle-free location, being recessed on the side by two.5″. The buttons really feel low cost, but are responsive. The majority of people will use the remote anyway, which can be extra from the very same. The remote feels inexpensive too, but looks okay and works fine. Given that there are not a ton of capabilities on this Tv, the remote is very simple sufficient. There is certainly no ethernet nor wi-fi.

==Motion Handling==
One solution I constantly look for proper away is smoothing out motion (at times separated into blur and judder). Most LCD’s have difficulties making clear, smooth, flowing video of motion. This is a major disadvantage vs. plasma, which will not suffer the identical dilemma. The refresh rates (120Hz or 240Hz as an alternative to 60Hz) are utilized to adjust the way your eyes see the motion on the television. Within the most effective Television sets, the video is processed so that there is certainly no stuttering and also no “Soap Opera Impact,” an issue introduced when there is certainly too substantially processing that can make any video appear unnaturally smooth as the processing tries to correct the regular variations in speed that us living items usually do so significantly when we move about. Regrettably, using the 42LV4400, you have got practically no manage over the motion handling, apart from deciding on a picture mode (Cinema, Game, Sport, and so on). In Game mode, the motion handling is turned off to reduce input lag. In Sport mode, it is turned all of the way up, so you can see a football gliding from the quarterback to receiver with out too significantly choppiness.

In the event you plan to calibrate this Tv yourself, you’ll be sorely disappointed. My older 42LH90 has settings for 10-point IRE gray scale and color/tint settings for primary and secondary colors. Such capabilities as those may well only interest videophiles using a spectrometer at their disposal, however the 42LV4400 totally lacks the capability to adjust the gray scale. Most other TV’s I’ve come across within the final handful of years a minimum of possess a 2-point IRE gray scale adjustment. I assume a lot more calibration settings are accessible within the service menu, but I haven’t located ways to access that, despite reading by way of the manual on the included CD LG 42LV4400.

==Other Features==
The picture menu lacks some crucial settings, but does let you make a fairly convincing picture overall. See the finish in the critique for my settings (even though each and every panel is different). Parental controls are well laid out. The Game mode seems to function nicely enough to play FPS, although a game like Rock Band might still will need some adjustment in-game. Sound is okay, but I’d recommend working with external speakers with any Tv. Sadly, the USB access will only let you view images. You can’t view films or listen to music from the USB port like you could on some other LG models. Also, I did run into a peculiar problem where this Television failed to input any signal from my DVDO video filter. Each functioned usually when paired with other devices.
