LG 47LB2RF

The Good 1080p support; styling; simple menu system.

The Bad Lack of Freeview; standard-definition picture quality; motion blur.

The Bottom Line A very stylish set with support for 1080p high definition that's let down by variable picture performance, lack of built-in Freeview receiver and high price

LG 47LB2RF

When CRT ceased to be the dominant force in the living room, something wonderful happened to televisions -- they became pretty. The LG 47LB2RF is one of the best examples of this, a stylish and attractive television that will look good in the corner of any room.

The LG 47LB2RF is a 'Full HD' screen, which means it can support the 1080p format via its 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution panel. This will guarantee maximum impact for your HD DVD or Blu-ray movies.

While we like the styling, the same cannot be said for its standard-definition performance, which we found unimpressive, with images blurry and subject to judder. Hi-def material looks great overall, but there was still some blurring around moving objects or during camera movement.
