We review the LG 37LH20 – The LH20 series from LG has been a popular choice for consumers looking to get high definition video and sound quality at a reasonable price. This 37″ LCD flat panel television produces images in 720p high definition quality, making it a great choice for most consumers. The maximum screen resolution is 1366 x 768 and with a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9, viewers can watch programming and DVDs with excellent clarity in a familiar theater format. The 37 inch screen is a great fit for most rooms and works well as an only television or a second television for the bedroom or family room. Like all LH20 televisions, we were impressed with its sleek and simply design.
The LG 37LH20 has a built-in HDTV tuner that allows viewers to simply attach an HD-capable antenna to receive any broadcasts over-the-air. The set can also be attached to a cable or satellite control box for standard or high definition programming. LG provides 3 color temperature modes and 3 A/V modes to customize picture and sound for movies, sports or games. We were pleased with LG’s inclusion of its Picture Wizard tool that allows viewers to initiate the start up process and the television set calibrates itself to optimal viewing standards. The Picture Wizard will take a lot of guesswork out of the set up process for most owners.
Color, brightness, contrast as well as decreased signal noise are actively managed on by the XD Image Processing Engine technology system. The XD image system displays true-to-life images and video. The 5 ms response time also ensures that action sequences are not blurry and seem life-like. The LG 37LH20 also provides other image enhancing technologies like 30,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and brightness up to 450 cd/sq.m. The system also produces tens of millions of colors and a Super IPS panel.
The LG 37LH20 provides two HDMI inputs for any high definition components like satellite boxes, video game consoles, or DVD players. The 37″ LCD also provides a number of other audio and video connectivity inputs for other applications.
The LG 37LH20 incorporates a 2-way, built-in, 20W speaker system with Dolby Digital sound decoder and provides a great sound experience. The surround sound system on the 37LH20 was created by SRS TruSurround XT and viewer who utilize this amazing system will be very pleased! The audio system give the viewer ample control to adjust bass, treble and balance controls and provides 5 pre-determined sound modes. The implementation of Clear Voice II lets viewers better hear dialogue during movies and TV shows and underemphasis background sounds.
