LG’s new line of HDTVs has been warmly received by everyone visiting the CES , back in January, and as a result one or two models coming from the company can be found in the top 10 most popular products of 2012 in the first half of the year.
One of the most popular displays is the 47LM7600 model from LG featuring the new Cinema Screen technology. This new mid-range model is dedicated to those looking for high-quality and decent screen size for a reasonable price.
That’s exactly what you’ll get if you end up choosing the LG Cinema Screen 47LM7600 3D LED TV. The most appealing feature of all is probably the price. There are now significant discounts for the two models in the LM7600 series and the 47LM7600 runs for around $1000 (saving you $900), which is a reasonable price if we take a look at the features.
Even when we compare the LG 47LM7600 to the LG 47LM8600, a slightly more expensive model, dedicated to those looking for a bit more quality in their new display, the differences are subtle and the quality in not by any means inferior to it’s higher-end counter part.
LG 47LM7600 Design and Features
In terms of design, LG has done an amazing job this year and you’ll be able to find the thinnest bezel with their LED TV lines compared to other products on the market right now. This means you’ll get a bit more space and a borderless design with the 47LM7600 TV.
In terms of image quality, LG has made it really simple to adjust the settings by offering the possibility of self-calibration. You don’t have to be an expert anymore in order to get the best image quality out of your TV. All you need to do is let this TV perform it’s own set of tests via the LG Intelligent Sensor technology, that will adjust colors and lighting according to your surroundings. There are also more advanced features that you can adjust yourself using ISFCCC technology and if you know what you’re doing you can go ahead and adjust the display settings using the more advanced functionalities.
Everything seems to be set up for an amazing viewing experience. There’s a 1080p Full HD panel aided by LG’s LED Plus backlighting in order to deliver superior clarity, brightness and color detail. The 47LM7600 uses local dimming to deliver deep blacks and a higher contrast ratio leading to the best viewing experience possible. LG uses the TruMotion 240Hz technology in order to optimize fast moving images like those you encounter in sporting events and features a 9,000,000:1 contrast ratio.
Gamers will be overjoyed with the Dual Play feature. This is one of the most useful features coming with 47LM7600 model if you intend to hook up your Xbox or Playstation 3 gaming console to it. Normally, the screen would be equally divided in two parts so you can enjoy a multiplayer game. With the 47LM7600 you’ll be able to view two separate images depending only on the angle of view, enabling to players to see two different perspectives on the same screen.
LG’s 47LM7600 is also a energy-efficient panel and comes in an eco-friendly package. LG uses Smart Energy features in order to let you save money on your electricity bill. The Smart features will adjust the brightness and color settings according to the environment in a room and let you save up to 30% on your electricity bill as a result.
LG 47LM7600 Passive 3D Technology
The features above are truly remarkable but if you dig even further you’ll be able to find the latest passive 3D technology also packed with this display. It is the latest and the best according to LG and we have to agree this time. One of the most important advantages for the passive 3D technology is the lightweight pair of 3D glasses required. The active 3D technology requires active shutter glasses, which are pretty expensive and rather uncomfortable.
The new 3D technology makes the 47LM7600 perfect for movie viewing and you will be able to watch the latest Hollywood blockbuster in the comfort of your own living room. The newest feature brought forward is the 2D-to-3D upconversion used to convert your older 2D content to a three dimensional format. You won’t get the same quality like you normally would with a movie shot in 3D, but you will be able to enjoy your favorite action movies once again thanks to this feature.
LG 47LM7600 Smart TV Features
The Smart features are almost compulsory to any 2012 display and the 47LM7600 uses the LG Smart TV Technology to bring Internet streaming content to your living room. You can choose to rent movies from services such as Netflix, Vudu, Hulu Plus or Cinema Now and enjoy the latest releases with your family, in the comfort of your own home.
This is all possible thanks to the built-in WiFi connectivity which will allow you to browse the web, download apps from LG marketplace and even enjoy YouTube videos as this one features Flash support. The Smart Share feature is another useful treat and thanks to this one you’ll be able to stream content wirelessly from your smartphone, tablet or video camera directly to your 47LM7600 and enjoy it on the big screen.
Last but not least there’s the Magic Remote. This one is a Wii-like remote that’s meant to be used like the mouse on your computer, without a rough surface to place it on. It’s an innovation from LG this year, however you might find that browsing the Internet isn’t very comfortable with the Magic Remote.
The Magic Remote will let you enable or disable the 3D support with one click and will enable you to change your channels with a simple wave of the hand. It’s an interesting feature coming from LG this year and we’ll just have to see how much success it will enjoy.
The LG 47LM7600 3D LED TV is an affordable option for a 3D-enabled TV coming this year and you’ll be able to enjoy all the latest innovation for an incredibly low price of only $1050 if you purchase it. You will also get no more than six pairs of 3D glasses with this purchase, which will be enough for you and your entire family to enjoy the latest 3D release in style.
That means a $900 discount, so if you were waiting for Black Friday or Cyber Monday to get this one, you might not get a better offer than this one.
