The LG 42LE5500 is 42 inch LED LCD high definition television set to be released sometime in 2010. The television combines LED technology with LG's LED Plus technology that was new to their 2010 releases. LED televisions provide a higher dynamic contrast ratio, resulting in clearer, truer blacks and a richer visual display while still keeping a slim television design. LED Plus expands on this and allows for higher picture quality by adjusting 16 addressable segments on the display to tailor picture quality. In addition to displaying in full 1080p resolutions, the 42LE5500 includes a connectivity package of DLNA compatibility, an Ethernet jack, and access to NetCast Entertainment which opens up such services as Youtube, Netflix, and Skype to be used directly on the television. Wireless functionality can also be expended to Blu-Ray players, cable and satellite receivers, and video game systems to avoid using wires to connect them with the television.
