Good Technical Features

A number of LG 32LD450 owners thought it had good features. Six years ago Pcmag.com said on PC Mag “Period." The company's no-frills approach to HD television is somewhat rare these days, though there are some features in this TV uniq” in their LG 32LD450 review. Expert review site Techcrunch.com said “People spend thousands of dollars to buy the latest, fantastic TV with more features”. Techcrunch.com also wrote “Great picture, no features g”.

Good High Def TV

One person mentioned in their reviews that it was good at displaying high definition TV.

Across all the mid-size TVs that are a comparable age to the 32LD450 the display brightnesses range from 160 cd/m² to 3,000 cd/m². With a display brightness of 500 candellas per square meter, the 32LD450 has one of the brightest display brightnesses amongst mid-size TVs of this age.

9 Reasons Against

Running Costs Are Very High

The 32LD450 is one of the least economic to run TVs of a similar age and spec that we have looked at for 5 year running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the 32LD450 is £138.

Very Slow Refresh Rate

Across all the TVs of this type and age the refresh rates range from 50Hz to 1,600Hz, and the average refresh rate is 180Hz. The 32LD450 has one of the slower refresh rates (only 50 hertz) amongst comparable spec TVs of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 50Hz refresh rate televisions currently available including because of it's better review score, the LG 47LV3550, or the Samsung 40D5003.

If you want a TV with a faster refresh rate then you might want to consider the 47PFT6309 (60Hz), or the 32PHK4509 (£233.54) (60Hz) both from Philips or the JVC LT-32C461 (£179.98) (60Hz) which also has a higher rating.
