It comes mounted on a sleek desktop stand. This is a Smart TV which runs on WebOS. It supports 5 Indian languages and comes with its own e-manual. The LG32LH602D is available at a price of Rs. 29,203/- in India. Let us take a closer look at this television in the following review.
The LG 32LH602D has a big 32 inch display, but it is not a big TV. The bezels surrounding the display are almost non-existent and allow for wide viewing angles. It comes mounted on a table-top stand which gives it a stable position. The mounting stand can be removed if the TV needs to be mounted on a wall or any other flat surface. It is equipped with ‘Flexi Mount’ wall-mounting bracket. It is flexible and allows the television to be rotated at any angle, within its flex range, to allow for a comfortable viewing angle.
All the controls of the television are located on the edge. In addition to the controls, there are 2 USB ports and 2 HDMI ports on the sides for easy connectivity with plug-n-play peripherals. There are more IO ports located at the back side of the television. They have; 1 RF In, 1 (Composite/Component Common) Component In (Y,Pb,Pr + Audio), 1 HDMI, 1 Digital Audio Out (Optical), 1(H) Headphone Out and 1 LAN port. The television is only 71mm thick. The LG 32LH602D weighs in at 5.46kg with the stand and 5.32kg without it. The design review of the LG 32LH602D finds it out to be a well-built, well-designed television.
The display of the LG 32LH602D is ‘only’ HD Ready with a resolution of 1377 x 768 pixels. Surely a full HD display would have made more sense on a 32” Smart television. But it is not a bad display at all. It has the Triple XD Display Engine which enhances colour, contrast and clarity of the content. Active Noise Reduction function works in real-time to reduce the noise in the content being displayed. Dynamic Colour Enhancer corrects colour discrepancies and works to clean and brighten any dull colours in the images.
The LG 32LH602D supports 5 Picture Modes; Vivid, Standard, Cinema, Cricket and Game. The Aspect Ratio has 7 modes; 16:9, Just scan, Original, Full Wide, 4:3, 14:9 and Zoom1. With so many utilities and tricks up its sleeve, it can be forgiven for not being equipped with a full HD display. This display fully justifies its inclusion on this Smart Television.
