  • The LG 42LW550T is capable of displaying images with a genuine sense of 3D but its pictures failed to get us excited. LG 42LW550T is tagged with LG, 42LW550T, review, 3D, LED television and 42-inch. Select a tag (LG, for example) to find everything on...

  • Contrast ratio not quite perfect (1005:1), More crosstalk visibile thanon a plasma 3D TV, Media player doesn't support M2TS or MTS files
  • The LG LW550T television only just misses out on a four-star rating because it can't quite deliver the same image quality as its big brother the LG LW650S. That doesn't take away from the fact that it's a great 3D TV....

  • Abstract:  You no longer have to pay through the nose for a cutting edge, big-screen TV. For less than a £1,000 you can bag a remarkable new set that’s slimmer and smarter than anything that’s gone before. From net-connected IPTV portals to 3D, potential buyers...

  • LG managed to produce a 3D TV that is both effective and practical for the majority of consumers. Even though the 47LW550T cannot resolve 1080 vertical lines in 3D mode, it is quite capable of delivering compelling 3D experience without a premium price...

  • Top class upscaling, user interface, clean and flicker-free 3D, seven pairs of 3D glasses
  • Soft 3D images, some Edge LED blotching
  • Those after sports on Sky, Virgin, Freesat and Freeview should look no further. At its core a darn good 2D set boasting superb 2D Blu-ray, excellent upscaling, a brilliant online dimension, great iPhone app and a silky smooth user interface, this engag...

  • The 42LW550T improves dramatically on all the issues that upset us about the 55LW650T. Admittedly much of this improvement might be down simply to the relative smallness of its screen, but improvements are improvements however they happen. And in this ...
