Is It Worth It?: The LG LF5600 "boasts a flashy, vivid picture that makes content like cartoons, news, sports, and video games look excellent — especially in a well-lit environment," says Reviewed. However, in dark rooms the shadow details are a bit too luminous, which makes this set better suited for rooms with a lot of light. The Editors' Choice LG 42" 1080p LED-Backlit LCD HD Television features 1080p resolution, LED backlight, and two HDMI ports.

Is It Worth It?: The LG 60" 120Hz 1080p LED-Backlit LCD HD Television is a bare bones 60" TV with LED backlighting and 1080p resolution.
