Energy GuideThe LG 42LS5700 42" Smart LED TV delivers a ratio of 5,000,000:1 and TruMotion 120Hz, which makes the 42LS5700 a remarkable TV by any standard. But that's just the beginning. LG hasn't sacrificed creature comforts for strong specs.

Since every room is different, the 42LS5700 automatically calibrates the optimal settings to match the color and light level of your specific space, thanks to intelligent sensor technology. Clear Voice II balances the voice channel in relation to swelling music or background noise, so you never miss a word of dialogue. Selecting features on your TV is as easy as the wave of your hand or using the wheel option to scroll up and down through menu selections. TV remote clicking is soon to be a thing of the past due in part to the magic remote control.

The three USB inputs allow you to share JPEG slide shows and videos (including DivX HD) with your friends. In addition to all of the above, the 42LS5700 is loaded with convenience features like a sleep timer, closed captioning, A/V input labeling and favorite channel programming. Lastly, Energy Star qualified means that you'll be saving money while helping to save the environment.

      Limited instructions on how to use the Majic Remote Control. Had to learn by trial and error. Haven't figured out an easy way to return to previous channel. We are satisfied with the other aspects of the TV.

        Comments about LG Electronics 42LS5700 42" Smart LED TV:

        Great picture after minimal tweaking. TV connected with my WiFi after I gave it passcode, and it downloaded a software update without any intervention on my part. Much maligned remote operates like a mouse. I find it simple and very intuitive. Sound is good for built in speakers (TV is located in a 14 x 18 bedroom), and volume is more than adequate. B&H is a pleasure to to business with. Delivery was on time, and UPS driver commented on how B&H is the only company that adds additional protection to carton.

        This TV is in our bedroom. It has a very good picture quality and sound. We now have two LG TVs and have been very satisfied with their performance. I did not care for the remote that came with the set.
