LG LH70 42″ HDTV + Blu-ray Theater System

This is by far the biggest and longest unboxing I’ve ever done. Took me over 2 and a half hours to carefully unbox and setup this theater system — a 42″ LG LH70 Full HD TV (LG Scarlet) and a 5.1-channel Blu-ray Receiver System (HB954TB).

The new LG Scarlet (model LH70) was unveiled last June 3 with sizes ranging from 32″ to 47″ and above. The test LCD TV I have here is 42″ and only 1.56 inch thick on the side, the thinnest of all LG TVs ever.

Perfect Slim 39.7mm
TruMotion 120Hz
Full HD (1920 x 1080)
Picture Wizard
AV Mode
24p Real Cinema (24p 5:5 pull down)
Expert Mode
USB 2.0
HDMI ports
Intelligent Sensor II
Smart Energy Saving Plus
Clear Voice II
Invisible Speaker

The Scarlet LH70 has a starting price of Php49,990 for the 32″ and Php89,990 for the 42″.

Along with the TV, this home theather system is also called Scarlet so I guess they’re a combo. A 5-speaker and 1 sub-woofer system with Blu-ray player, it comes with a built-in iPod dock, 2 HDMI input and 1 HDMI out, USB with a total power output of 1,000 watts.

The LG Blu-ray Home Theater System (HB954TB) retails for about Php69,990.

    (off topic, just bumping up my question.. sorry! thanks!)

    Sir Yuga, do you have any news on the Samsung i8910 Omnia HD? Will it be available soon here in the Philippines? And how much?

    I don’t know if I will buy Omnia now or wait for Omnia HD. Thanks!

    Does anybody know where I can buy quality but cheap Omnia here in Manila? Okay ba sa Greenhills o buyer-beware? Salamat!

  9. Jhay says:

    Not bad for that price tag. It would be a shame to put on pirated DVDs on this system. ;)

  10. yuga says:

    @andre & wha – no, they stay with me for 2 weeks, then return them or some other tech journo reviews ’em.

    @techme – yup 70k for the 5 speakers, subwoofer, and blu-ray player

    @carl – i think it’s a bug in the system

    @JDSalinger – my sala, the bedroom is already full!
