    LG 47SL80 - Picture Settings

    (Page 3 of 4 )

    The picture settings on the LG 47SL80 are very good and should satisfy even the most hardcore picture tweakers. They are accessed via controls on the bottom right panel. To make things easy for beginners, the TV comes with a Picture Wizard, which provides users with on-screen reference points to help with calibrating the different settings, such as the backlight, contrast, brightness, sharpness, color, and tint.

    The Picture Wizard feature is great for those who lack experience or knowledge when it comes to picture settings; it takes a ton of the guesswork out of the entire process. It basically makes calibration so easy a caveman could do it, by giving you pictures on screen and allowing you to tweak the controls until the adjusted picture matches that of the recommended picture setting.

    There are eight basic picture preset modes in all, and each can be adjusted to your liking. There are some more advanced expert modes. To save time and extra work, the modes are independent per input, too.

    If you are more versed with picture settings, the 47SL80 offers plenty of advanced settings as well, via the aforementioned expert control setting. Through this setting you can adjust noise reduction, dynamic contrast, gamma, black level, edge enhancement, color temperature, and more.

    One interesting setting is the Intelligent Sensor mode, which automatically adjusts the backlight according to the brightness in the room using a built-in ambient light sensor. In terms of aspect ratio settings, you get four different modes for standard sources and five for HD sources. One possible negative within the 47SL80's feature set is that it lacks the interactive features found with many newer televisions, but as a stand-alone set, it gets the job done.

    If you are big on “going green” or saving the environment, the 47SL80 is Energy Star compliant. In addition to its compliance, however, it also has four Smart Energy Saving settings that you can employ to not only help save the environment but save on your monthly electric bill. These settings help conserve energy consumed by adjusting the television's brightness. There is also a built-in auto-off feature that turn the television off if there is no video signal present.
