Review of LG – 32LS4600 (and 42ls4600)

Slim, Superb connectivity options and Full HD, do you need anything more?

One of the greatest thing about LG-32LS4600 is Edge LED. Means it’s super slim, and knocking on the surface does not bring distortion (like Samsung TVs) and acts as a protector.

Next, i would give 5 star rating for connectivity options. 2 components input, 3 HDMI and 2 USB ports. Also the placement of 1 HDMI and 1 USB in the side make it truely awesome for quick connect and you do not need to struggle between the wall and TV.

I picked this TV as we do not need Internet/Apps on TV. Other features of this TV are –

  • Full HD – 1080p/i: Most 32-inch LED TVs come with lower 1,366 x 768 resolution. The full resolution of the TV is 1920x1080p
  • The TataSky HD delivers 1080p resolution for it’s ten HD channels.

  • DLNA – It is network ready and Windows Vista/7 can share media files with the TV. I was able to successfully browse shared files on Laptop and play on this TV. However, controlling playback (play/pause/stop) directly from Media Player did not work. There is a LAN port at the back of the TV to connect to sub-network. I was able to connect to Netgear n150 router and able to connect to DLNA server.
  • DivX ready – played almost all of my video files.
  • Edge LED: This brings better control over contrast ratio. The TV is super slim.
  • 3 HDMI, 2 components, 2 USB ports: You can connect your xbox, HD set top box, and a DVD player to three HDMI ports. The USB port is 2.0
  • LG’s free installation: LG offers free installation. I called in the morning and they were at my home on the same day for installation. This free installation includes wall-mount only.



Price in India: MRP of LG 32LS4600 is Rs 46,000 (listed on LG website) however it is available in retail shops at around Rs 36,000. (At Bajaj Electronics in Punjagutta, Hyderabad I was able to get more discount.) Note: Price mentioned here is indicative only and is subjected to change on manufacturer/retailer’s will.

Rating: 4.5/5

    Hi Ankit,

    I bought this LED TV two weeks back. Design and Look wise it is very good. But I am facing one problem. When I am trying to play .mkv movie of 4.6 GB through USB pendrive(8GB).It is playing around 1min and then showing me a message USB loading… I dont understand the issue. Is it regarding TV or not!

    Hi Ankit,

    I had bought this TV two weeks back.It is very good in looks wise.But I am facing a problem while playing a .mkv movie of size 4.6 GB from a pendrive(8GB). It is not playing continously. It is playing around a minute and saying disconnected, a new pop is coming saying that a pendrive is ready for use. I dont understand the issue. Could you throw some light on this issue?

    Thanks,
    Venkat.

    Hi! I saw the TV today was impressed by the looks however on doing some research online I found Cnet has not given very good reviews. Secondly my other choice is samsung Eh5000 46″ or Panasonic ThL42e5. What is your opinion? What is your experience so far?

    One is on the side, other is on back. Though there is no options for 3.5mm or 5.1, but I think optical audio aout supports 5.1, not sure.
