Conclusion: LG's 42SL80 is an attractive 42-inch LCD TV that delivers a sharp HD picture but struggles with standard-definition content. The set features an intuitive Picture Wizard that can help you achieve optimal image quality without professional calibration.
Pros: Sleek, edge-to-edge glass design. 240-Hz technology. Good color quality. Easy setup wizard.
Cons: Soft standard-definition quality. Some visible haloing. Weak deinterlacing performance.
Excerpt: This TV is available in two sizes, 47 (LG 47SL80) and 42 (LG 42SL80) inches. I got the latter for review in my labs but this review will apply to the other one too since the internal hardware components are the same. Only the size is different and hence it makes no sense to write another review for it. This panel looks really sexy and it is made for people who value looks a lot. Colleagues in the my office couldn’t stop staring when this TV came in labs for reviewing.
