The motion handling of the LG 32LJ542D is decent. It has a fast response time, so there is only a very short blur trail behind fast-moving objects. But it may appear irrelevant for someone for this, not a big deal though.
It supports motion interpolation up to 50Hz and has a Black Frame Insertion feature to make the image crisper, but it does not work very well.
Native Refresh Rate: 50 Hz
Variable Refresh Rate: No
The sound quality is great with 20 watts Dolby Digital Decoder speakers to deliver powerful sound with enhanced bass performance on LG 32LJ525D, making your listening experience as immersive as viewing.
Enjoy a cinematic experience at home with the Bollywood mode feature. For better sound, dedicated speakers or soundbars are recommended.

The LG 32LJ542D is a budget model available only in 32 inches. Price-wise it looks attractive but unfortunately, it has below-average performance in terms of picture quality.
The only positive point is a good viewing angle. The sound quality is good though. You can buy the last year’s Sony KLV-32R302F model, Sony KLV-32R302E. With this, you will get similar sound quality and better picture quality at almost the same price.
