South Korean consumer electronics giant, LG, have come out with some pretty innovative televisions over the past few years.
LG's Smart TVs are manufactured in the broadest range of sizes going from 32 inches all the way to 84 inches. You also get to choose between plasma and LED backlit LCD panels.
LG's LED smart TVs typically offer local dimming for better contrasts, while their plasma sets are fitted with an Anti-glare filter so they're watchable even in average lighting. To know more about which panel is best for you, visit our
LG until recently endorsed only passive 3D technology and since this isn't possible on a plasma television, most of LG's plasma Smart TVs are just 3D-ready. Their LED Smart sets however, are typically passive 3D and come with flicker-free glasses included.
LG in terms of Smart TV
The best of LG's Smart TVs are rich in terms of fancy features, from multi-function remotes to the android platform.
Magic Remote: LG boasts a very impressive remote with a QWERTY keypad behind the standard remote control functions. The neat voice option button means you can speak into your remote and have your Smart TV take you just about anywhere on the internet without having to press a dozen buttons.
LG, like most Smart TV manufacturers gives you a host of sites to pick and watch or stream your favorite entertainment from. Whether it'ss Youtube, Pandora, Netflix, Facebook, Twitter, Vudu, Amazon and even MLB TV. LG's SmartTVs are also great to have true-to-life conferences over Skype, since they come with a built-in camera and Skype compatibility.
Connections: LG connects to the internet using an inbuilt wi-fi so theres no need for cables anymore.
Google TV: LG Smart TVs implement the well known Android based platform, Google TV which gives you access to complete freedom on the internet via its Chrome browser. Nevertheless, this awesome interface isn't fitted into all of LG's Smart TVs and many of them still use LG's own platforms. Moreover, LG is also considering teaming up with HP for their WebOS, so Google TV doesn't look like it's going to be their chief operating system.
LG Smart TVs are a great investment since you get almost all the contemporary SmartTV features for a lighter price tag than many of their competitors.
