The LG 42SL90 is an advanced 42” backlit-LED HDTV that utilizes an edge-lit LED system to produce superior image quality with a contrast ratio up to 3,000,000:1. As a competitor to the xxLX6500 series, the 42SL90 adds along an S-Video interface while maintaining LAN connectivity, but ditches its counterpart’s WiFi compatibility. Like its peers, the unit provides a full 1080p resolution and includes TrueMotion 120Hz & 24p Real Cinema technology to ensure Blu-ray disc and DVD media are presented without any motion blur or unwanted color changes. More importantly, the LG 42SL90 is outfitted with many additional connectivity options, including HDMI, Component, AV, and USB. Plus with the LAN module, users can stream Internet content.
