Excerpt: It may lack the snazzy red-tinted case of some of its larger siblings, but this 26-inch LCD serves up color where it counts: on the screen. The LG’s video processors scored well, too, scrubbing out noise and reassembling even the hairiest interlaced sources without a ton of visual artifacts.
Pros: Input labeling lets you select “Xbox 360” instead of “HDMI 1.” Simple, classy remote. Active audio equalizer brings out dialog when you’re using the built-in speakers. Menus are easy on the eyes.
Cons: Some added noise in skin tones. Doesn’t smooth out jaggies the way many larger sets can.
