LG is one hard working company, always keeping the media in the loop amongst other things. They have newer and better signs each year, and also cool sounding and looking features. Performance wise they are more than decent too, and this time they have taken things a step further with the introduction of Bluetooth in a TV. Cross hybridization of technology is inevitable, and when it does happen it's always fun to check out. So let's check out this new Plasma TV by LG, with a couple of brand new features, called the LG 42PQ70BR.
The connections available are part of the full fledged bouquet, with 3 HDMI inputs, 2 component ins, PC input (Mini D-Sub), composite ins( 3 in total), plus the all important USB 2.0 input. One point needs mention here: the USB can play MP3s, JPEGS and also Div X, MPEG 4 movies, stored in FAT32. There is no head phone out, and comes with inbuilt stereo regular speakers that output 15 watts of power each at their loudest. __STARTQUOTE__Moving images in 720p were obviously the best, as that is closest to the native resolution__ENDQUOTE__
There is a new feature called 600 Hz sub field driving introduced in this series, that helps in very precise motion video rendering, meaning there will be less motion blur, and so LG claims less optical fatigue. The response time due to this new tech is quoted as 0.001ms. Of course the other new feature is Bluetooth, so one can connect wireless headphones and stream media also to playback on the TV. They have not mentioned whether it's Bluetooth 2.0 or not, we are not assuming anything yet. In the performance we’ll see how it fares.
The unit is actually a 24 kg machine though it looks much lighter. It’s a 42-inch screen, with native resolution of 1024 x 768, which is typical of plasma 42 inch screens. The brightness is 1500 Cd/m2 and dynamic contrast ratio is 20,00,000:1, a very high number, we cannot say how it is rated so high.
