Over Labor Day weekend, I purchased the LG 32LN5310 from Best Buy for $259.99 +tax. Here is my review of it.
- Assembly of the base was easy
- Good auto channel detection
- Seems to use Direct LED back-lighting instead of edge-lit
- Excellent viewing angles
- Has an Optical Audio out
- Eco mode seems to be too dark and I can't seem to find a way to increase the backlighting without going to normal mode since it is automatic
- Does not appear to support HDMI 1.4 and Audio Return Channel
- Does not support local dimming and 3D, but at this price point not to be expected
- Switching the tv from Eco to Normal mode and adjusting the brightness down gives an excellent picture
- I know that 1080p at this tv size does not make any difference, but at the same price it certainly doesn't hurt :-)
- This is the perfect size for a bedroom (or small living room)
- I cannot find the tv on LG's website, but the best theory I have found is that it is just a rebranding of the 32LN5300 to be a Best Buy exclusive.
