The LG70 series is the premium line of LCD televisions introduced by LG in 2008. These sets have a 1080p native resolution and a 120Hz mode similar to the LG60 line. The extra dollars and upgrades come from a better panel with increased contrast ratio and a premium styling for improved aesthetics. Above the LG70s is the flagship 47LG75 which uses LED backlighting technology for dramatically improved contrast ratio.

LG50 and above features

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.

Features Common to all 2008 LG LCDs

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.

Models

The LG70 series follows this naming convention: LG xxLG70 where "xx" are replaced by the television's size.

The LG71 series of televisions contains the same features as the LG70s but adds wireless support which allows you to setup your home theater with a decreased amount of cables for a cleaner look.
