    They stripped a lot of features out for 2012 over the same 2011 model, March 28, 2012

    Review written by K.Watson

    They stripped a lot of features out for 2012 over the same 2011/2010 line/models. The reasons are unclear. I assume to just make more money and fleece their customers even more. They removed so many great features that really made this a great set but they kept the price the same, which I would like to point out is already high compared to other models in the size. There is just no sense or logic in the stripping of these features whatsoever.

    They removed a HDMI port. Now there are not enough ports to hook up everything you need. Deal breaker for most potential customers right there. With just 2 ports, I’ve already had to pull out my set away from the wall several times to juggle between consoles, or if I want to watch a bluray movie or if I want to watch cable. It’s a hassle. God only knows why LG would remove a very much needed HDMI port from us. Even the guy at Best Buy told us that he does not recommend this set to anyone because it has the least amount of HDMI ports of all their sets. He seemed really shocked. So were we.

    Movie quality is now worse. They removed 5:5 / 2:2 pull down from movies. Actually, ANY video content you want to display. 480, 720 or 1080. This means there is a huge amount of video judder / jitter present in any movie you watch. Go google “judder” it’s a bad thing and you don’t want it. But, if you buy this set, you will have plenty of it. Judder makes objects on the screen herky jerky when panning left to right, right to left, any panning whatsoever. Up / down, you name it. Objects will skip along the screen. God only knows why LG took this very basic feature out. It basically ruined this set. Even my daughter noticed the judder in her Disney movies and asked if the game needed cleaning. She is still at that age where she doesn’t understand fully about bluray or dvd discs and thought that if Daddy and Mommy cleaned her “game” the movie would display smoothly. Of course it wasn’t a game but a Bluray disc.

    They took out many many features from the user menu. Gone are many features that could be changed in the 2010 and 2011 version of this set / product line. Basically, at the expense of picture quality. Dozens of features were removed. They absolutely sabotaged this set and mangled what it once was. I know, I own both the LG 32KD450 and LG 32LK450. I apologize if I am being so harsh but LG warrants such a response and I think potential LG customers deserve an in-depth review.

    The night I returned my set to Best Buy, the sales person looked at me, puzzled I might add and asked me, what is so bad about this set? He went on to say two other people had returned theirs as well over the weekend.

    What a shame that LG would ruin such a fantastic line of TV sets by removing so many features that made this such a stand out TV against other 32″ sets from other manufactures. Let’s just hope that LG discontinues this model next year instead of releasing this kind of garbage upon it’s customers. What I really want to ask LG is, why did you not want my money? Why did you remove the HDMI port and all those very important hardware features and menu features that made this such a great TV? Why LG?

    Update: I had a chance to speak with the sales manager from Nebraska Furniture Mart in my area and he tells me LG purposely crippled, removed these features, both hardware and in the user menu to make it’s newer LED based TV’s stand out against this set. He tells me that sometimes manufactures will do this to artificially highlight a TV in it’s product line as having more features , better value, when the truth is, it never did. This is to drive sells in that area.

    I can tell you this LG. You customers are both smart and savvy and will see through this gimmick. I would also like to point out that when your customers are treated with respect, they become “loyal” customers. Pulling these kind of stunts will only drive business and customers away. I returned my set and I will not be looking at LG as a brand I would consider for anything in the future.

    A good but not great set, March 31, 2012

    LG’s lower-mid level sets have earned a reputation for having low gaming lag, great color accuracy, and the most extensive features and picture options of any sets at or even above their price level. The CS560 series still delivers in these regards, but to a lesser extent than earlier models.

    The styling and build quality of the TV are very good overall. My panel is an S-IPS type and most owners on forums have confirmed the same, suggesting that LG may not be conducting a panel lottery (randomly shipping VA and IPS panels for the same model) this year. The buttons are all touch sensitive, which is a nice feature but makes them hard to find in the dark. One complaint to make about the set is that it buzzes faintly unless the backlight is set to 100, which can be a little annoying when using the set quietly at night.

    The input lag at 1080p seems to average around 1-2 frames, keeping with LG’s standard for fast processing time. There is hardly any noticeable increase in lag when upscaling from 480p and I can play timing intensive games and online FPS with no problem. If you’re buying this set for gaming, you’ll probably be pleased with the lag performance.

    The color accuracy also seems to live up to LG’s usual standards, although it’s hard to know precisely how well without measuring with a meter. Every color is vivid and deep without appearing over saturated. The black levels are average at best, but the unbelievably bright white levels help to offset them and create good contrast during bright scenes. The overall picture is extremely clear, vivid and detailed.

    The motion handling is mostly excellent with no visible streaking and very light blur on moving objects in the background. There is, unfortunately, a problem with juddering during camera pans with certain video sources, most notably 24p. Past LG sets were able to handle 24p content smoothly, even models at much lower price points, so this obviously comes as a disappointment. If you intend to use the set mainly for watching blu-ray movies then you may want to buy last year’s LK450 instead.

    The feature set is another startling disappointment. The TV only has 4 inputs- 2 HDMI, 1 RF, and 1 component input- and no VGA or audio outputs whatsoever. The component input functions as a joint composite input, meaning that you can’t use both cable types at the same time. Users who have a lot of different sources will find themselves having to use adapters or receivers to handle most of their connections.

    Some of the advanced picture options have also been cut. There is no longer a color filter option available, which means that color and tint calibration now require a pair of blue glasses to set. The 10-point IRE calibration has also been removed, leaving only the option for 2-point. The picture wizard seems to have defective patterns for brightness and contrast, giving you white and black levels that are wildly off target when compared to any other test pattern (fortunately, the picture wizard’s color and tint patterns still seem to work accurately).

    Several other small features from the expert menu such as “eye care” and the like have also been omitted, giving the CS560 the most limited menu of any LG I’ve seen. However, the CS560 still has a much fuller range of adjustments than most televisions in its class.

    My own opinion of the 560 is that it’s an excellent looking TV but one that grinds right along the border of “minimal” and “cheap”. The set has been scaled back significantly compared to past models in response to the advance of LED, which seems poised to become the default backlight technology of LG’s TV lineup. If you have simple tastes and just want a good looking set for gaming and occasional movie watching, the 560 is a great value and will perform well enough. If you’re a more serious film enthusiast with a large blu-ray collection, then you may want to seek out an LK450 or choose a different brand to avoid the judder and limited inputs.

    Highly disappointed . . ., March 25, 2012
    Racer J

    Do not buy this TV expecting to get the same quality that the 32LD450 and the 32LK450 had. While it may be the 32LK450’s replacement, it certainly doesn’t live up to its predecessor. The only area of “improvement” is that they will all allegedly have IPS screens. The one I purchased was an S-IPS (I would have chosen A-MVA if I had a choice), the other unit on the shelf had the same AUSY code, and so did the display unit. The IPS is only an “improvement” though if you were playing the panel lottery with the 32LK450 and trying to find an IPS panel instead of the A-MVA panel. The TV I got has a very minimal amount of backlight bleed on the bottom edge slightly to the right of the center. It’s not very noticeable with the backlight down but if you have it high, it stands out and has been getting worse. Initially there was no banding on the DVI>HDMI signal from the PC on various test pages but, that has started to show up as well for some reason. Speaking of tests, do not bother using the “Picture Wizard” on the TV as it will crush your black levels and it is impossible to make the which image look like the recommended example unless you increase the brightness and wash out your black levels in the process. There is something fundamentally wrong with the “Picture Wizard” and/or the TV.

    Several of the options in the TV menu have been removed and are as follows:

    Picture Mode:

    Photo (this was model Dependant)


    This was model dependent but it’s allegedly in the 32CS560 yet there is is no setting for it in the menu.

    Screen RBG PC:

    This is obviously missing as the CS560 series does not have a VGA port

    Advanced Settings/Expert Control:

    Dynamic Colour (this is missing on Expert 1 and Expert 2)
    Skin Colour
    Digital Noise Reduction (Noise Reduction is still there)
    Clear White
    Eye Care
    Real Cinema/Film mode (24fps video has to be playing to gain access to this)
    Colour Gamut (EBU, SMPTE, and BT709 have been removed)
    xvYCC (I haven’t seen this but, that type of signal may not be getting put out)
    Colour Filter
    Expert Pattern
    Color Temperature (is not available on expert and it has been changed to only go from W50 to C50. All methods except 2 point have been removed and 2 point is under the Expert Control on all video modes including Expert 1 and Expert 2. The 10 point IRE settings have been removed)

    Option Settings:

    ISM Mode (this was used to remove ghosting from stationary images and it has been removed).

    In addition to that, the 32CS560 does not process 24fps video content correctly. There is a judder/jitter/stutter every time the camera pans up, down. left, or right. You have to have “Film Mode” on to make the judder/jitter/stutter not look like a bunch of zig zags but it doesn’t stop it from happening. You need ot reduce your contrast setting to 20 or less to reduce the judder/jitter/stutter and that will seriously degrade your I/PQ (image/picture quality) as it will leave it dim/dingy/dirty/etc. as if there is a film of dirt/fog on your screen. There is absolutely no way to correct this issue and to make matters worse, you can not use “Film Mode” when the 32CS560 is hooked up to your PC. This issue has been reported by two other owners as well.

    Speaking of the PC, you are able to have the 32CS560 do 4:4:4 chroma without renaming the input label but, you have to do the EDID override if you are using a Nvidia video card. When it comes to video games (PC and console), there aren’t a lot of complaints as myself and two other owners didn’t notice any issues. When it comes to video though, the TV’s flaws are there in full force just like they are with a DVD player.

    I will be returning this TV for a refund (purchased locally so I didn’t have to wait for shipping) as I have absolutely no interest in an exchange as the issues are present with other owners.
