Cons

TruMotion doesn't seem to be necessary, picture is fine without it, can create the "soap opera" effect on some video

1 agrees

rear-facing speakers force the user to turn them way up, lack any detail in the sound

1 agrees

Intelligent Sensor tends to make the screen too dim even in a dark room

The 42LD520 is a 42" LCD HDTV from LG's LD520 Series.  The TV is a step up in size to the 32LD520 and features a widescreen LED-backlit display with a Full HD native resolution of 1080p.  It offers a TruMotion 120Hz refresh rate for reduced motion blur and smooth high-speed images.  The LD520 Series is a step down from the LD550 Series since it lacks the NetCast Entertainment Access and WiFi connectivity which comes with the LD550 models.  The TV is expected to be released in the first quarter of 2010.
