LG is one of the most eminent consumer electronics manufacturers of this century, so their television sets generally weigh up to expectation, and they host some of the best LED TVs in the market. Before you head off to purchase one however, you need to be aware of the three broad options you will have to choose from: 3D TV, SmartTV or just an HDTV?

A 3D TV is the thing for you if you intend to use your TV for 3D gaming and be ready for when 3D movies become prevalent. At the moment 3D movies are still quite rare, but 3D TVs display great 2D content too.

Once you figure this out, decide what resolution you'd like to have. LG High Definition TV resolutions begin from 720p and go higher. Typically in screen sizes less than 50" the boost in picture quality from 720p to something higher is hardly discernible, so a 720p/768p resolution would get you that vibrant picture quality for a relatively lower price.

Speaking of resolution takes us to the next important factor that affects viewing experience, which happens to be the screen size of your tv, something that's entirely dependent on the size and seating arrangement of your TV room. Expert opinions typically recommend a viewing distance of 2.5 times the screen size, so you do the math.

In addition to the above mentioned factors however, the caliber of a good LG LED TV is also contingent on the contrast ratio and refresh rate. Put tersely, contrast ratios of 4,000,000:1 or more and a refresh rate of 120Hz or higher provides for vibrant video and lack of motion blur respectively and are worth looking out for.

Below is the Reviewgist list of the best LG LED TVs derived based on the top rated LG LED TVs on the market. You'll find a gamut of models that include a range of A/V input ports and implement the best audio technology to complement the dynamism of your high definition video.

  • Although its lovely frame is packed with well-executed features, the flagship-priced LG LA8600 series LED LCD TV has the picture of a midrange model.


  • We really enjoyed the LA8600, even with its slight color temperature issue and yawn-worthy black levels. And while we easily say this is a terrific display, its huge asking price of $2,699.99 for a 55-inch model is a bit steep. Yes, you get a beautiful TV that will make your in-laws jealous, but you can also do that with Panasonic's DT60 and Samsung's F7100 for less. If supermodel-thin bezels are your thing, definitely consider the LA8600 if you find it on sale. Otherwise, do some comparison shopping.


  • The LG LA8600 series of HDTVs offers beautiful aesthetics, sharp 2D and 3D imagery, and rich color reproduction at a premium price. You get lots of features with this series, some of which are of questionable value.


  • The LG 55LA7400 promises to be a pretty good seller for LG with the excellent Magic Remote, 3D, and faster 240Hz processing speed, and superior sound quality. Competition is from the Samsung UN55F7500 and UN55F7100, as well as many plasma TVs such as the Panasonic TC-P55VT60. Overall the TV has lots to offer though as of this writing may not be the best value on the market at around $2000.


  • Picture quality like this on a TV half the price would be one thing, but a price just shy of two grand is another story; the 47-inch LA7400 carries an MSRP of $1799.99. Definitely look for this on sale - we found it online for about $1200. Sure, much of what you're paying for is features - but that's exactly the point. If you're looking for top-dog picture quality, move on.


  • If you are after an LED set, the LA7400 performs well compared to other LEDs in its price range. The 55-incher reviewed here is $1,600 at Amazon, and the 60-inches comes in at $1,900. The pre-calibration image was OK, but the calibrated image was often beautiful, with great color saturation and a nice, natural look. The black level/contrast ratio is similar to other edge-lit LED LCD models (as in, only OK), but it offers some of the best 3D IĆ¢?? ve watched at home.


  • The midrange LG LA6200 LED LCD TV gets points for looks and smarts, but loses even more due to its picture quality.


  • This is one of the best features of the 55LA6200, value. At $1100 it's tough to beat in the 55" size for value. It competes with the Panasonic TC-P55ST60. Samsung's answer is the UN55F6400. The LA6200 is one of the best value buys in the market.


  • If you need a bigger panel without a price tag to match, the LA6200 series is a pretty decent bet. This isn't an exciting TV - the black levels are middling and the controls are downright spartan. But if you aren't a picture purist and fancy features like apps and 3D are important to you, you could do a lot worse.

    My advice? Do yourself a favor and take a look at the Google-powered TVs from LG this year instead.


  • The 42 inch 42LN5700 is a great value piece if you want that great LED edge lit backlighting from LG and tons of features sans 3D at around $650. And since plasma TVs are not produced in the 42 inch size range anymore this is a standout in terms of quality and value for 2013/2014.


  • We feel that an investment in the LN5700 series would be wise. This entry-level series from LG is capable of producing a finely colored, motion-friendly picture that - while a poor choice for a dark room - nonetheless looks high quality in moderate to bright lighting. The TV's contrast ratio may be a bit narrow if you're looking for the best quality picture, but the average user is going to be entirely satisfied by the images this TV produces.
