Up for Review: LG 26LN4500 LED HDTV.
With the growing penchant for LED HDTVs by all consumer groups, the electronics industry is trying hard to deliver cheaper alternatives to the market while keeping the basic functionalities intact. While the leading LED TV manufacturers are trying their best to capture the market sales by introducing innovative picture technology and great design sense, the LG 26LN4500 is silently brewing its popularity among the average income group under a cheap price tag without sacrificing much on the features and specifications front.

- HD 720p Resolution
- Trumotion 60 Hz refresh rate
- LED Plus Technology
- Picture Wizard II
- Smart Energy saving

The new 26LN4500 is a blend of basic features and a highly advanced picture technology required for day to day use. Since most users cannot deal with the plethora of features and functions that come along with the TV, the manufacturers have resorted to a simple interface with minimum functionalities in order to be appreciated by a large portion of the masses using LED panels.
This LED panel fares well from the display quality standpoint. Compared to the other TV brands within the same price range, this 26 inch LG panel has successfully managed to maintain a decent level of imagery with its patent Picture Wizard Technology. The self calibration of on screen reference points scheme offered by this TV efficiently adjusts the contrast, brightness, tint, sharpness and color levels for a crisp, detailed and vibrant viewing experience. Moreover, with a matching 60 Hz refresh rate and 720p resolution the panel produces better high definition videos when compared to simple HDTVs.
Owing to the economic built of this TV, it has been carefully designed for average households and consists of simple, broad, glossy black bezel bordering the panel.
Designs apart, the connectivity facilities of the LN4500 are meager though quite reasonable. However, those who have had a look at those smart TVs with Wi-Fi, home theatre systems, app sores and google TV interfaces are likely to find this panel a tad bit disappointing. But then with a price tag as this, you really have nothing to complain about. Inspite of this, the TV does a great deal to provide additional entertainment through the HDMI and USB ports by connecting external equipments like surround sound setup, disc players and much more.
If you are looking for a small LED TV to be mounted on your bedroom wall with minimum features to worry about and just plain entertainment, the LG 25LN4500 is a clever choice both economically and aesthetically.
