£270 LG 32LH5000 32 inch LCD TV 1080P HD Ready Freeview

Taking the picture first and the 32LH5000 is one of the most comprehensively equipped TVs for its class. Want 1080p resolution? Check; it's standard. 100Hz scanning? Yes, TruMotion 100Hz is onboard. What about an intelligent light sensor that doesn't just alter the picture to suit lighting conditions but helps save power, too? You guessed it; this impressive LG has that too. To this list you can also add the latest version of LG's XD Engine. The XD Engine offers faster, more accurate picture processing than ever before with some amazing results to show for it. Match a screen response time of just 2ms with a brightness of 500cd/m2 and a stunning contrast ratio of 80,000:1 and it's clear to see that this is a TV that's anything but average. In short, whatever you're watching will be crisp and detailed with superb resolution and the ideal brightness.

As usual, we would always recommend using a separate home cinema system but if you're using the LG's built-in sound system you might be pleasantly surprised. Using an invisible speaker system with Clear Voice II the 32LH5000 sounds bright and precise. Furthermore, the SRS TruSurround system creates a spacious sound that avoids the typical TV boxiness.

In terms of connections, the 32LH5000 is top flight and up there with more expensive TVs. Triple rear-mounted HDMI, and one side-mounted, sockets allow for the connection of 4 High Definition sources, such as a PS3, HD-TV box, HD camcorder and Blu-ray. In addition to this, the 32LH5000 boasts twin SCART sockets and component connections for your analogue sources. Furthermore, the PC input makes this attractive TV the perfect complement to your home computer. Topping off the wide range of sockets is a digital optical sound output - ideal for connecting this LG 32 inch 100Hz LCD TV to your home cinema for a useful upgrade in sound quality.

As the wise men of What Hi-Fi said, "Handsome and amply specified (1920 x 1080 resolution, four HDMI inputs, 100Hz motion processing, USB 2.0 socket for MP3, JPEG and DivX playback, for example), it's got a stack of showroom appeal." Thanks to the latest technology, it's also Energy Saving Recommended. For a 32 inch, 1080p, 100Hz LCD TV, the LG 32LH5000 is the only number you need to know. The LG 32LH5000 is available from Richersounds for only £270.
