When it comes to display size, the majority just wants more —on mobile phones, televisions or laptops. But big can cause a headache too, especially televisions when you are sitting in front of them for prolonged periods and at a short viewing distance. This is because the larger the television screen, the more your eyes move. This in turn may cause eye strain, which is a source of headache. Small can be beautiful too! After all, quite a few of us have grown up watching classic Doordarshan entertainment—Hum Log, Buniyaad, Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi, Ramayan, Mahabharat—on the 21-inch small screen. Recently, the South Korean electronics company, LG Electronics sent across their 32-inch LED TV for a review. Nowadays when consumers and vendors prefer larger display, the LG TV brought back a taste of the past. The world's leading TV producer, which also manufactures various other gadgets including laptops, multimedia players and home cinema systems, combines the latest in style and technology to offer some of the most innovative televisions and its 32 LN5650 LED TV is testimony to that. Pulling the TV from its box revealed a relatively slim machine, outlining a minimalist design. Here's my first reaction when I played National Geographic channel via my TataSky on the LG LED TV—it's superb high-definition and in your face. The setup too is simple. The LN5650's succinct design strikes a nice aesthetic, and looks good on its stand or mounted on a wall. The LG TV's most eye-catching feature is its panel. Just as the quality of the beans determines the quality of the coffee, the quality of the panel determines the quality of the TV. The IPS (in-plane switching, a <![if !vml]><![endif]>screen technology used for TVs) panel used by LG is the reason why its LED TVs have clearer, more consistent, and sturdy screens. In the case of the LN5650, the IPS offers a colour impression that is most identical to that of the original image. The colours are quite comfortable for the eyes. Among liquid crystal display panels, it is visibly clear that IPS shows the most consistent colour and contrast from all angles. Free from colour wash and contrast loss, it is the ideal panel for all purposes. IPS is decidedly superior to the competing panels in the clarity of its pictures during fast motion display, allowing blur-free, crystal-clear pictures. IPS panels are stable and sturdy, and resistant to damage, as opposed to weak competing panels; just try a simple knock or poke at the screens to see for yourself. In my test-run, after some modest adjustments to backlight, colour, hue, and tint, the picture was consistent across all inputs. Among other attractions, the 32-inch LG TV has a resolution upscaler feature by means of which viewers can enjoy any content in high-resolution. Very often is the case that external content from the internet or devices look bad on TV due to low resolution of the files. LG provides a solution with its resolution upscaler, which magically improves the resolution of original content and makes them look good on the big screen as well. LG's latest and most advanced Triple XD Engine brings the highest level of excellence in colour, contrast, and clarity for the best picture quality and performance. LG folks reckon that their new TV has been designed for Indian weather conditions. It saves power upto 60% and is equipped with features for protection from lightening, summer heat and humidity. Also, with this TV you can now experience a great and superior sound as it is blessed with 1200 watt PMPO sound quality. The sound output is delivered from 2.2 speaker system. Two front and two sub-woofer speakers are used, each delivering 300 watt PMPO and an overall sound output of 1200 watt PMPO. You can connect and watch high definition content on this 32-inch TV via simply connecting your phone or other mobile devices to the LN5650. The phone is also charged while it is connected. You can also connect your USB or external hard drive to the USB port to play its contents on your TV screen. My takeaways: great viewing experience, awesome sound and the TV hardly occupies any space on the table or the wall. I think that LG has struck a nice balance of quality and affordability with the LN5650. It's definitely worth considering.
