LG 26LE5300 Review » Key Feature Ratings
Price The cost of this LED TV is $21 per inch of screen size. This is priced about average.
ENERGY STAR ENERGY STAR qualified. This HDTV uses about 40% less electricity than standard televisions.
Efficiency Estimated annual electricity use is 2.8 kWh per inch of screen size. This is more energy efficient than your average ENERGY STAR TV.
Design Incorporates 5 key design features that impact its functions and performance. This HDTV has an average number of key features.
Best-Seller This TV is not a top best-seller at a national store including Amazon, Best Buy, Sears, and Wal-Mart. – LG 26LE5300 Review
Resolution Equipped with 720p high-definition resolution. While this is not the highest resolution available, it may be adequate on smaller TVs or if you don’t need to connect a PC.
Side Inputs Includes side inputs that allow you to conveniently plug-in some devices without having to reach behind the TV.
LED Designed with edge-lit LED backlighting instead of standard LCD fluorescent bulbs. LED is more energy efficient and allows for significantly thinner TV designs.
Local Dim This LED television does not have local dimming capability. On / Off dimming of LED zones can significantly enhance the quality of your picture.
Frame Rate Uses a standard 60 Hz (60 frames per second) which is adequate for many programs and movies, but you may experience slight motion blur during fast action scenes.
THX Like most HDTVs, this is not THX certified. THX certification generally indicates that the TV will have high-quality picture performance. – LG 26LE5300 Review
DLNA Not DLNA certified (Digital Living Network Alliance). DLNA promotes interoperability between electronic devices, which makes sharing digital content easier and more convenient.
3D This LG television is not 3D ready. 3D TVs allow you to view 3D content from select video games, Blu-ray discs, and programming, but are much more expensive.
Wi-Fi This LG HDTV is not Wi-Fi capable. You cannot wirelessly connect to your home-based internet network.
Internet Internet access is not available with this TV. You cannot view streaming internet videos, widgets, or applications that are available with many brands.
DVD Player Like most televisions, this LG TV does not have a built-in DVD or Blue-ray player. Most consumers purchase these items separately.
Depth This LG HDTV is ultra-thin with a depth of only 1.4″. Provides a sleek look, especially if you can wall mount-it. – LG 26LE5300 Review
Frame Standard, multiple-level design with some space between the screen and the bezel. Single-level designs can provide a seamless look that is preferred by some consumers.
Speakers Speakers provide 20 watts of total output power, which is about average. – LG 26LE5300 Review
HDMI Provides 3 HDMI inputs so that you can connect a cable box and two other devices such as a DVD player and video game console. Do you need to connect a PC as well?
