Smart TV-easy way to access limitless content Selecting features on your LG TV is as easy as the wave of your hand with the Magic Remote Control. With just a point and click or use LG's unique Voice Mate, capable of recognizing how you naturally speak to change channel, volume or find something to watch. Plus control your Blu-ray, home theater system, set-top-box and sound bar with just one remote. Now, you can spend less time navigating and more time on your entertainment. (Disclaimer: internet connection & certain subscriptions required and sold separately. The Magic Remote does not come equipped with all LG Smart TV enabled TVs and a separate purchase may be required. Content and services vary by product and are subject to change without notice.)
Share your media, your way LG gives you multiple ways to browse and share files from external storage devices on your TV screen, or access files from your PC, tablet or smart phone via Wi-Fi. Whether you create a network with your compatible devices, access content stored in your LG Cloud or use an NFC tag to connect, LG makes it easy for you to share content with friends and family. (Disclaimer: internet subscription required and sold separately.)
LG cinema 3D Immerse yourself in vibrant colors, stunning detail and amazing depth - that’s what you get with an LG Cinema 3D experience. With LG Cinema 3D glasses (4 pairs included) it’s easier than ever to share immersive 3D images. Battery-free, flicker-free, low cost glasses, just like the ones you get at the movies, allow users to outfit family and friends for an affordable price. Additionally, LG’s 2D to 3D conversion automatically converts shows and movies into 3D. (Disclaimer: for a small percentage of the population, the viewing of stereoscopic 3D video technology may cause discomfort such as headaches, dizziness or nausea. If you experience any symptoms, discontinue using the 3D functionality and contact your health care provider.)
LG Plus Technology LG’s LED Plus technology provides even greater control of brightness through edge LED lighting control to deliver better contrast, amazing clarity and color detail.
TruMotion 120Hz technology See sports, video games and high-speed action with virtually no motion blur with LG’s TruMotion 120Hz technology. Now your TV can keep up with the fastest moving entertainment.
Double the detail With almost double the pixel resolution, Full HD 1080p gives it superior picture quality over standard HDTV. You’ll see details and colors like never before.
This review is from: LG 55" Class (54.6" diagonal) 1080p TruMotion 120hz Cinema 3D Smart TV 55LA6900
Pros: Clean, crisp picture. vibrant colors, dark blacks. The (almost) edge to edge screen makes the TV appear larger than it is. There is about 1/4 inch band around the TV, maybe smaller, that's it.
3D conversion (2D->3D) Obviously this isn't going to be perfect - but it's still really good, especially on 1080 movies (For instance Ender's Game - b/c they didn't shoot that in 3D for some reason??). Normal 3D - beautiul - simply put. Add to that the glasses don't require batteries and can be viewed from any angle in the room (within reason).
Smart Features; So far, I haven't had a need to use much of them as I run a Media PC to this TV. But what I have used, on screen cable remote, a few of the apps, couple of movies, etc - they've been pretty nice. I mean, I'm not ordering pizza from my TV, but I know it can be done - so that's cool...
The Magic remote is pretty cool - I think the remote with the keyboard would have been better (that comes with the LG Google TV), but this one is pretty useful in it's own right (such as being able to setup your cable remote to the LG remote).
Cons: There's not many, but the ones there are - are pretty significant in my opinion. . .
1) Built in Wi-fi; is horrible. My TV is less than 20 feet from my router, and when streaming anything, such as movies, I get about 3 minutes in and the buffering begins. My wireless tests at 17 Mbps, so I know it's not network related. This occurs if I'm using the built in offerings that LG provides for movies/3d movies, or Netflix - it's flat out horrible, in my opinion. However - I went Ethernet and wired straight in to alleviate that issue altogether.
2) Movie selection is limited on the LG options. To like 5 at a time? maybe they've added more over the past few months, but I stopped checking b/c there wasn't anything on there worth the money to rent.
3) "App store" should be considered "non-existent" since there's nothing of use on it, really. I mean it comes with Facebook, Netflix, (I think) Twitter - but that's about it. nothing more.
Other Thoughts: I know that I have more Cons listed than Pros. Having said that, I would definitely buy this TV again. Especially at the $ I got it on sale for. The TV, as a TV - is something quite awesome. The TV as I have it setup, (hard wired to the network with a media PC setup with it) - spectacular. Being that the Cons were very noticeable, I had to take one star off.
