LG LH30

The Good Accurate color; extensive picture controls including unique Picture Wizard; adequate connectivity with three HDMI and one PC input; energy-efficient.

The Bad Reproduces relatively light black levels; below-average uniformity and off-angle viewing; no S-Video input.

The Bottom Line While its black levels and uniformity mark the LG LH30 series as an entry-level display, its extensive picture controls allow the color accuracy of a flagship model.

The 2009 entry-level LH30 series of LCD TVs re-establishes LG as the king of picture controls. Last year the company offered the most extensive suite of user-menu color adjustments available and this year there's even more to tweak--from gamma targets to color filters to a Picture Wizard, designed for nonexperts, with built-in test patterns that actually work. The end result is highly accurate color. But other major picture quality factors, namely black level and screen uniformity, are generally beyond the reach of controls, and in the LH30's case those two factors weigh heavily.
