Screen Features and Technologies:
To start off, the screen for this LG NetCast LCD HDTV measures 52-inchs. This is an excellent size for a big screen LCD HDTV. When you combine the screen size with the screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels you’ll be able to enjoy full HD through 1080p formatting. This is the highest grade of high definition as of 2010.
If you enjoy playing video games, then you’ll love the 2.4 millisecond screen response time. This will reduce image blur during high action scenes. One of my personal favorite features is the wide viewing angle. The screen can be viewed from 178-degrees horizontally or vertically. Basically, you do not have to sit directly in front of the screen in order to get the best view unlike older models.
This LG 52LD550 LCD HDTV features a contrast ratio of 150,000:1, which is high but definitely not comparable to similar televisions that feature over one million to one contrast ratio.
Audio Features and Technologies:
The sound quality for this LG 52LD550 LCD HDTV is quite impressive. It is powered by the Clear Voice II Audio System. This advanced audio filtering system enhances human voice frequencies from on-screen actors and reduces background noise so you can clearly understand dialogue. This is a great feature for intense action movies where the background noise can overpower dialogue. You will have a total of two 10-watt speakers for a total of 20-Watts of power. One of my personal favorite features within this LG 52LD550 LCD HDTV is the Infinite Sound Surround Sound System. This virtual surround sound system organizes audio frequencies and delivers them in various levels to trick your ears into hearing multi-level audio for a true surround sound experience – without the need for external speakers.
The NetCast Entertainment Access Package within this LG 52LD550 LCD HDTV allows you to instantly connect to the Internet so you can stream online TV shows, movies and videos in 1080p formatting. Take note that you must subscribe to the NetCast Service in order to enjoy this feature (monthly fee subscription).
