LG 42SL8000 (SL80) review

Another nice display for you to consider in your purchases. No web integration or apps though, which is a disappointment, but quality appears to be solid.


SL8000 really impresses me with a beautiful and rich, detailed picture. SD quality is better than on most LCD-TV out there today and far better than on previous LG LCD-TVs. Analogue signals from analogue sources are still weak. 42SL8000 has excellent color reproduction. I examined different colour gradients and with exception of some of the semi-dark colours 42SL8000 did a fantastic job. HD is beautiful, too. The HD picture is very detailing, even in fast paced sports scenes. The TV also handles 1080p24 signals correctly.
