Product Information

Most advanced technology in the most beautiful style.

Looking to bring true cinematic experience into your home? Well with its strong graphics and colour depth, the 42PG3000 is the very set to do just that.

Packed with features normally associated with a more expensive set, the 42PG6000 is a 100Hz, 720p set with a remarkable high contrast ratio of 20,000:1. Also included are some clever additions by LG themselves.

Clear Voice for instance, alters the sound balance to emphasise human voices by reducing the background noise. All input sources (RF/AV/Component/HDMI) as well as Stereo and Mono broadcast can be controlled by Clear Voice.

 

This LG TV has 3 special preset AV Modes which provide the best suitable image quality and sound for specific types of content.They are easily accessible using the AV MODE hot key on the remote control.

And finally LG have replaced the normal speaker grill with an Invisible Speaker system. The speakers are embedded in strategic spots underneath and around the front bezel. They enhance the audio by increasing the ‘sweet spot’ to give a wider and richer sound field.

So if youre looking for a plasma TV with looks and brains, this Lg will do the job nicely.
