“Although its overall picture quality falls short of the best 240Hz LCDs, the LG LH55 series offers plenty of picture tweaks and accurate color.” (CNET, 2009)
“The 55LH55 provides owners with a vast number of picture quality adjustments, the majority of which create excellent color accuracy. Its overall picture is excellent for a mid-range LCD, but the sound package leave something to be desired. If you can handle the minor sound issues and are focused on the LH55’s video quality and energy savings, this is one of the more tempting LCDs available on the market today.” (CleverReviews, 2009)
“The LG 37LH55 looks to be priced a little out of its class. There are several larger sets available for less money that are comparable or offer better picture quality. The 37LH55 is capable of a 240Hz refresh rate, which is a nice feature, but the majority of people will be just fine with a 120Hz set.” (TelevisionInfo, 2009)
