LG 22LV2500 Review: 22” LED LCD HDTV
Up for Review: LG 22LV2500 LED TV. Among the advanced LED, LCD and Plasma TV series, LG also previewed the LV2500 series of LED TVs. The series included two models with a set of almost basic and traditional set of features. You will surely miss the advanced features like full HD or 3D support and efficient options to access internet. A user will like to give the set a miss due to the lower resolution, refresh rate and a 22-inch TV screen.
The video related features included in the model are normal and are not suited to the viewing of the latest television shows and movies. Most of the recent programs are being made with a 1080p resolution and full HD support. So for watching the different programs being aired across various TV channels, a viewer need to a use a set offering the same resolution. But this model offers only a 720p resolution and makes itself suitable to watch the normal shows like news and weather.
The lower resolution is also backed with a normal 120 Hz refresh rate. A viewer cannot watch the fast moving sports and action scenes requiring a higher level of motion and speed. This is also the reason for the model to be unpopular among the kids. They will start complaining by being unable to enjoy their favorite sports and action shows on a TV set offering such lower refresh rate and coming with a smaller screens size. So you can consider the set only for watching news and similar programs occasionally.
LG 22LV2500 Features and Specifications Review:
- LED Backlighting
- 10000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
- 720P Resolution
- 120 Hz Refresh Rate
- Picture Wizard II
- Intelligent Sensor
- Smart Energy Saving Options
- ENERGY STAR® Qualified
A user will definitely like the set due to the energy saving features included in its features. It comes as ENERGY STAR qualified and a set of smart energy saving options. But these features are not the basic criteria for considering a TV set for buying. The set also scored much lower on the various connectivity options. There is no traditional or wired method to access internet and the online contents. However, the poor video quality and 22-inch screen will not encourage viewers to use the TV set to access internet.
However, the smaller screen size provide buyers with an option to use the model as a spare TV set at home or keep it at office. He can use the same occasionally to watch the news, weather, and current affair related shows. These shows can be watched on a lower video quality, as most of the people watch these programs to gather information. Also, a modern person hardly finds any amount of time to watch TV programs at office. He can keep the set at office and use the same rarely to watch informative shows and programs. There is no other purpose or reason to consider buying the TV set.
