The LG30 series is the entry level line of 720p LCD televisions by LG for Spring 2008. These sets, similar to entry level offerings by other manufacturers are intended for people that want to get into the HDTV market without breaking the bank. Since HDTVs are relatively mature technology the 2008 models start with features considered high end just a few years prior. Multiple HDMI inputs, improved contrast ratio, and "hidden" speaker system are some of the upgrades made for 2008. A minor upgrade above the LG30 series is the LG50 series which jumps to a native 1080p resolution.

Invisible Speaker System - LG has done away with traditional speaker drivers and instead places actuators inside the bezel that surrounds the panel itself. LG claims this creates a "wall" of surround sound.
Clear Voice - the television dynamically enhances the audio frequencies used in human dialog in an attempt to make voices clearer even during scenes with loud background noise or music.
SimpleLink Connectivity - when the TV is hooked up to other LG devices through HDMI that support the same SimpleLink technology, you can control them directly from the TV itself.
1080p support - The sets support 1080p content at 60Hz/30Hz/24Hz through both HDMI and Component inputs.
The LG30 series follows this naming convention: LG xxLG30 where "xx" are replaced by the television's size.
