LG 55LE7500 LED TV
This LG LED TV has a great picture quality if you can avoid reflections
- Great picture quality, attractive video-on-demand offerings, looks stunning when polished
- Very reflective, cloudy backlight when brightness is boosted
The LG 55LE7500 is a 55in edge-lit LED television that has a very glossy front panel. It looks excellent, but it is very reflective. This can prove annoying if you're watching in a room with a distinct light source. Couch potatoes will be pleased, though - LG's video-on-demand features are extensive and very well implemented.
Price$ 3,999.00 (AUD)
The LG 55LE7500 is a 55in edge-lit LED TV with Internet video-on-demand features and a thin, glossy design. Its picture quality is impressive, and the television's access to BigPond Movies on Demand is excellent for a lazy night in. However, the glossy screen picks up any and all reflections — which could be a major inconvenience for some people.
LG 55LE7500: Design and connectivity
Like the LG 50PK750, the LG 55LE7500 has a sheer, single-sheet glass fascia and slim profile. We think that LG has done a great job with the design of the 55LE7500, and indeed its other 2010 televisions.
The super-glossy front panel of the LG 55LE7500 looks great when the television is turned off, but if you're in a room with any discrete light sources (such as lamps) you may have problems with unwanted reflections. In a well-lit room — our fluorescent-lit test environment is roughly as bright as a sunny day — you'll be able to see your surroundings mirrored back at you. If you're in a dark room, this problem is significantly lessened.
The LG 55LE7500 has the usual complement of analog and digital video and audio connectors: Four HDMI ports, two component, composite, USB, and single VGA and Ethernet connectors.
LG 55LE7500: Internet features
We really like the Internet features of the 55LE7500. Called 'NetCast', the system allows users to access weather, Picasa, YouTube and BigPond Movies on Demand. The last feature is the most useful, allowing couch potatoes to sink further into their favourite recliners and order up a swathe of movie content. If you don't want to spend extra money on a media streamer or Blu-ray disc player, the BigPond Movies on Demand connectivity really is useful.
LG 55LE7500: Picture quality and visual performance
The LG 55LE7500 is an edge-lit LED television of the same basic type as the Samsung Series 7 (UA55C7000) and Sony Bravia KDL-46HX800. LG claims a contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1 thanks to local dimming of LEDs, and the 100Hz panel of the 55LE7500 has a native Full HD resolution of 1920x1080.
When it comes to displaying high quality content, such as a Blu-ray movie — if you're able to get rid of any unwanted reflections — the LG 55LE7500 does a great job. We'd definitely lower the backlight as much as possible to reduce unwanted light bloom, where the screen's light source is displayed unevenly across the screen. We found LG's Cinema preset to be the best default mode for watching content with.
Contrast was generally good, with plenty of detail found in darker areas of the screen in our The Dark Knight Blu-ray test. The picture of the LG 55LE7500 also consistently looked vibrant and vivid, without destroying detail in saturated scenes.
LG environment policy
LG's environment policy outlines some of the company's sustainability efforts, including minimising its carbon footprint and producing greener products.
The LG 55LE7500 is a mixed bag. It's got great Internet features and great picture quality from its 55in Full HD panel, but the glossy panel severely restricts its usability in bright areas unless you can position it perfectly.

The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
