The LG50 series is the least expensive line of LG LCD televisions introduced in 2008 that offer a native 1080p resolution. These sets are a step above the LG30s, which have a native resolution of 720p, and come below the LG60 series which add the 120Hz display mode. Above the standard features found on most entry-level 1080p televisions the LG50s add USB support for digital media, which is usually found on the higher end lines of other manufacturers, and a built-in light sensor to automatically adjust the brightness of the television depending on the amount of light in the room.

Intelligent Sensor - this is the marketing name for the light sensor that automatically adjust the resulting picture on the television depending on the lighting conditions in the room.
USB2.0 port - connect a USB mass storage device to the television to access stored images and music. Format support is limited, so this isn't a replacement to a full digital media box or computer.
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 LG50 series follows this naming convention: LG xxLG50 where "xx" are replaced by the television's size.
