The LE8900 LED TV from LG has been showered with accolades including a 4 star review from Home Cinema Choice, 5 stars from What Video & HD TV, a ‘Highly Recommended’ accolade from AVForums, a 5 star review from What Hi-Fi Sound and Vision and a nomination for TV of the year at the T3 Gadget of the Year Awards.
If somehow you remained unconvinced after such a wealth of excellent reviews TechRadar have got their hands on one for a full review. Their verdict? 5 stars of course…
The first thing noted by TechRadar is the inclusion of direct LED backlighting in a TV so slim (a mere 35mm in depth) you would be forgiven for thinking it is edge-lit. And the picture quality does not suffer for being fit into such a stylish and slim exterior, with the black level response, rich colour palette and especially the natural, darker colours all singled out as strengths.
Further highlights picked out by TechRadar include the comprehensive list of calibration aids, including preset calibrations from THX and an official endorsement from the Imaging Science Foundation. This means the TV has been confirmed as suitable for professional calibration to produce optimal results in both dark and bright conditions.
It would be easy to go through the review re-hashing everything TechRadar said, but instead I will let you read the review for yourself via the link below, instead closing with a quote. “Being able to focus solely on its 2D quality and cheaper price point means we can find precious little negative to say about the 47LE8900, leaving us feeling confident that it’s LG’s finest TV yet.”
