Which Size HDTV is Right for My Room?
LG 32LD520 LCD HDTV
With standard-definition TVs, the rule used to be that viewers would feel comfortable watching a set from a distance of 3 to 6 times the screen size in inches. With HDTV, the resolution is so much better that you can sit closer to a larger TV without noticing the pixels. So with HDTVs, the rule tends to be you can sit anywhere from 1.5 to 3 times the screen size (in inches) for the best experience.

If you know the size of the room you have already, where you want to sit, and where your new HDTV should go once you get it, you can figure out the size HDTV you should get.

  • Minimum size = Viewing distance/3
  • Maximum size=Viewing distance/1.5

LG 32LD520 HDTV Reviews

My old Samsung DynaSlim had begun making a high pitched sound (A problem very common to the model) and I decided LG 32LD520 was time to finally upgrade to a flat screen. I looked through the latest issue of Consumer Reports to rate Flat Screens, and this model received very high marks. LG 32LD520 is a 32 inch with 1080 and a refresh rate of 120. C/Net also said that right now LG TVs are in their prime. As a bonus, LGs are one of the very few who still include a headjack with their sets. This may not seem like a big thing, but it makea a difference for a one bedroom apartment when one person wants to watch TV and the other wants to do something else. The TV arrived superfast in a box that came with a handle (what a concept!). The first thing my spouse noticed was how lite it was compared to the Samsung DynaSlim. I am not mechanically inclined, but it was super easy for me to install the TV on its stand. The whole thing is so light I could lift it with one hand. In addition to the aforementioned headphone jack, it comes with 3 HDMI connections. It was very easy to hook up my Tivo and DVD player. Now came the moment of truth-setup. It was a breeze. Although I was initially discouraged when I noticed that instead of a thick manual the set comes with a CD (sign of the times I suppose), it did come with a quick cheat sheet. Of the many things I like about the set is the volumne control. Unlike the hold Samsung which was just a line across the buttom, this is a large graphic circle in the buttom right hand corner. Everything about interfacing with this set is very graphic. And now for what everyone wants to know-the picture. Its amazingly crisp and sharp. The first show we watched on it was HOUSE and it was amazing how much crisper and sharper the image was now. And unlike the Samsung (you can tell I was ready to ditch it), it silently turns off and on (the Samsung amde an annoying beep sound). The remote has large buttons on it and is very easy to use. Among the many features the TV has is the ability to make human voices stand out over background noise, and to control the volumne of noise from channel to channel. I occasionaly will notice some minor pixilation here and there, but its negligible for me. And once I go through the CD instructions, I probably will figure out how to do away with this entirely. The 32 inch set is just the right size for our apartment set-up-big without overwhelming the room. And the headphone jack has made life easier. I like this set so much I showed it to a friend who is considering it for himself now. I am VERY Happy!

These LG TV's (we bought two) arrived on time, damage free, and upon easy installation produced excellent picture and sound immediately. I've installed other brands of TV's and other electronics, and I was very pleasantly surprised at how easy the installation went. I hardly needed installation instructions.

I would recommend this TV to anyone, and I would buy another LG product.


32LD520 Reviews

I just got this TV today and have been fiddling with 32LD520 for quite a while now and I figured out how 32LD520 works and what is great for it. This TV is a great deal and in my opinion rivals more known brands.

I love how easy it is to set up your picture the way you want it. Sure there are pre set ones like sport, cinema, game, and the intelligent sensor, but I used the picture wizard and I got the exact kind of picture that I wanted in around two minutes. When I tried the Intelligent Sensor I didn't like it. I like a well lit room unlike some people and the TV screen went too dark for me to see so I used the Picture Wizard and I love it.

When watching cable TV I loved the feature it has to make the human voice sound better. 32LD520 like the sitcom is in your living room almost. I fiddled with the sound to the way I wanted and the Infinite Sound with Dolby Digital makes this TV sound like it already has a surround sound system. I won't be getting a surround system anytime soon because the speakers on this TV are just that good. The bass is very deep. Watching movies are going to be a blast.

I also own a PS3 (HDMI also) so I played a couple games to see what the picture and sound was like. I played Grand Theft Auto IV and God of War II so far and wow is it great. I saw GTA like never before. The 120hz makes this game look more like a movie (I'm so used to 60hz I didn't know this was possible) and the sound makes the footsteps, gunfire, and cars etc. sound spot on lifelike to real sound. God of War II was good also but GTA experienced much more change.

Alright here are my pros and cons for this TV

Pros: Easy set up
Picture Wizard is a must try
The full 1080p resolution is phenomonal
The speakers mimic surround sound Quality
DOLBY DIGITAL
Makes human voices more dynamic and seem like the person is in front of you
Easy to navigate menus
Great for cable, movies, and games
120hz is a fast refresh rate
Less expensive than other brands with similar features

Cons: Intelligent Sensor didn't work very well for my lighting style

Conclusion: If you want a TV with a lot of bang for your buck, give this one a look.

I ordered this TV after reading Consumer Report ratings. We wanted a 1080p 120 Hz flat screen but not a large one. This 32 inch is great. LG 32LD520 has excellent picture quality, is easy to program and totally adaptable to our DirecTV system. We don't have access to cable tv but DirecTV made the necessary HD changes for us. The TV arrived on time in Utah and was well packaged. This LG model has great sound. There are plenty of optional connections for DVDs and computers. The price was great. LG 32LD520 was totally worth it. I've done a lot of business with Amazon and have never been disappointed in the companies and products they offer.


LG 32LD520 HDTV

We have had the TV for a short time, but the picture is very, very, good, and we have had no problems with the set. The sound is good, but not outstanding. Off center viewing has been no problem either. I rate this as a very good purchase. Wished 32LD520 had WIFI capability.
