Yesterday, I posted that this is my dream TV and now, I can say, dream come true. 🙂

Editing this because they charged us 36k for 12 months. Not really what we discussed on…too bad we don’t have the charge slip anymore. See more here.

LG Scarlet LH70 Mini Review
The main reason why I picked this TV over the recent models was the design and the look. LCD TVs are usually colored black so when I saw it in red, the want desire grew in me.
It is very easy to use. You flick the power switch at the bottom of the TV then press gently on the glass circle switch (very classy). Changing inputs (TV, AVI, HDMI) can be button with a single button and the same goes for the energy saving back light (you can set it to auto but I find it very dim on nighttime).
You can change a few settings in the video / audio or pick a pre configured settings such as cinema and games. For example, the Games setting would give a sharper look while the cinema setting would give a yellowish tone. I can’t make out the difference in audio though.
I have tried playing some movies via the USB port of the TV but it can only play only AVI files (XVID video, MP3 audio). Newer video formats such as MP4 or MKV can’t be played (although they say the European model of LH70 can). I noticed that the TV gets hotter then usual when using the USB so I won’t be using this feature.
I have yet to test the HDMI portion as I don’t a player capable of giving HDMI output.
Overall, I like the LG Scarlet and I’m proud to have it.
