The Power of One Infographic

Sonically, the set is nothing if not adventurous, with five preset sound modes (Standard, Music, Cinema, Sport, Game), and LG’s ‘Infinite 3D sound’ which attempts a faux multichannel experience from stereo sources - all from two downward firing 10W speakers. Play with them all you want, the sound is never more than functional.

Spend some time optimising the image and it proves quite a good all-rounder

Verdict


There’s no doubt that LG’s passive attack throws a different light on the 3D TV revolution. Using almost disposable 3D specs certainly has its appeal and it’s debatable whether there’s enough material available in 3D to make passive’s image quality drop much of an issue. As a regular 2D TV, the 42 LW650T is a reasonable mid-range option. Once calibrated, its images are perfectly acceptable and LG’s ‘net connected Smart TV hub is definitely a step in the right direction. ®
