The LG 26LG40 is a standalone, entry-level 26” LCD HDTV that offers integrated Surround Sound speakers, integrated Dolby decoding, and a plethora of connectivity options. Due to its inexpensive price (in comparison to $1000+ units by LG), the 26LG40 is limited by a 1366x768 resolution and a 5000:1 contrast ratio. However, LG ensured the unit would still prove a worthy buy by outfitting it with 3 HDMI v1.3 ports with Deep Color support (which means better-quality picture), a USB interface that accepts a/v content, and component/composite/s-video ports. Included also is SimpLink functionality, by which the supplied remote control can be setup to control any and all SimpLink certified units in a user’s home-theater system.
