LG 42LE5400 Review » Key Feature Ratings
Price The cost of this LED TV is $36 per inch of screen size. This is more expensive than average and is priced in the top 24% of new TVs.
ENERGY STAR ENERGY STAR qualified. This HDTV uses about 40% less electricity than standard televisions.

Best-Seller Rated highly by consumers and is a best-seller at a national store including Amazon, Best Buy, Sears, and Wal-Mart. - LG 42LE5400 Review
Resolution Designed with 1080p resolution, the highest definition available. Provides nearly twice the resolution of 720p, and allows you to fully utilize 1080p videos or programming.
Side Inputs Includes side inputs that allow you to conveniently plug-in some devices without having to reach behind the TV.
LED Designed with edge-lit LED backlighting instead of standard LCD fluorescent bulbs. LED is more energy efficient and allows for significantly thinner TV designs.
Local Dim This LED television does not have local dimming capability. On / Off dimming of LED zones can significantly enhance the quality of your picture.
Frame Rate Employs blur reduction technology that increases the frame rate to 120 Hz (120 frames per second). The picture should be crisp and clear for sports and action movies.
THX Like most HDTVs, this is not THX certified. THX certification generally indicates that the TV will have high-quality picture performance. - LG 42LE5400 Review
DLNA Not DLNA certified (Digital Living Network Alliance). DLNA promotes interoperability between electronic devices, which makes sharing digital content easier and more convenient.
3D This LG television is not 3D ready. 3D TVs allow you to view 3D content from select video games, Blu-ray discs, and programming, but are much more expensive.
Wi-Fi Wi-Fi capable, but does not include a built-in receiver or external adaptor. Purchase an external adaptor and you can access your home wireless internet service.
Internet You can access internet videos and streaming content via widgets and applications. A wide variety of internet content is available, but you don't have browser search capability.
DVD Player Like most televisions, this LG TV does not have a built-in DVD or Blue-ray player. Most consumers purchase these items separately.
Depth This LG HDTV is ultra-thin with a depth of only 1.2". Provides a sleek look, especially if you can wall mount-it. - LG 42LE5400 Review
Frame Standard, multiple-level design with some space between the screen and the bezel. Single-level designs can provide a seamless look that is preferred by some consumers.
Speakers Speakers provide 20 watts of total output power, which is about average. - LG 42LE5400 Review
HDMI Provides 4 HDMI inputs so that you can connect a cable box and other devices such as a DVD player, video game console, and PC.
