Beautiful set, Pretty pricey but you pay for quality
I'd highly recommend this tv to anyone who is looking to buy a quality set that provides a good at home cinematic feeling. If you can afford it id recommend buying this sets big brother LA8600. Which comes equipped with a built camera, that allows you to use skype and/or control the tv through finger gestures.
Voice Control through Magic Remote speeds selection process/browsing
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.
TV's design is nothing if not unique
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.
3D is so good
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 Iâ?? ve watched at home.
Fantastic TV for the price!
I went from a 32" Philips LCD TV to this and I have to admit the Black level of the Vizio isn't as dark (probably a byproduct of the edge-lighting). However, don't be scared of Vizio because some people have had excessive edge-lighting issues. If your unit has a lot of this issue, then exchange it within the return period.
Dark scenes have vibrant color with excellent dark shadow detail thanks to the high contrast
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.
Slim bezels with a quiet, gunmetal finish
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.
I love this TV
The smart: while waiting for the cable modem to reboot, I clicked on settings, and the TV connected to my wireless network faster than a new Mac does. A click on the "smart tv" remote button, and I was in business. The YouTube app connected easily with my iPad, so I was instantly able to play videos I bookmarked. The TV software then remembers the videos you've recently played so you can go back to them easily.
Excellent Value/Price vs. Quality Offering
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.
A bright, color-true picture
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.
Excellent Smart 3D TV from LG!
This TV has Dual Core processor and I can see the difference immediately. The moment you press menu or home, it hardly takes a second to launch (The previous gen single core processor takes a good 2 or more seconds). The Magic remote is shorter/sleeker and easier to handle. I like the new voice search. Along with internet, it also searches and lists the files in DLNA shares. This TV also has in-built 2.1 sound.
Good Quality Color performance from the semi-clear coat screen
The LG 55LA6900 is certainly going to compete well in the value area given the Magic Remote strengths and solid picture performance combined with incredible looks. Pricing is $1499 or more and that gives you a nice discount from the 240Hz 55" models on the market. Competition is from the Samsung UN55F7100, and the Panasonic TC-L55ET60 as a couple of comparisons.
The 55-inch LA6900 retails for about $2000, though you could likely find it for less online. That said, I really don't recommend purchasing this TV unless you find it at a serious discount. I had high hopes for this LG, but its core performance just isn't strong enough. It has all of the usual weaknesses attributed to LCDs: A poor black level and blurry motion handling.
That's not to say it's without uses. As far as pure color production goes, the LA6900 is great.
Solid, not perfect, picture quality
We may be halfway through 2013, but Sony is just getting started with its TV lineup. If the W802A is any indication, this is going to be a good year for the Japanese electronics giant.
There are many things to like about the W802A: It looks good enough to make your in-laws jealous, it produces a solid picture, and has vastly improved smart features compared to last year. So is this the right TV for you? That depends on how much you're willing to spend.
Excellent treatment of standard def content
Sony's W802A proved to be a formidable TV for everyday use - particularly for viewing in daylight - providing a sharp image, a feature packed smart interface, and that telltale Sony appeal, all wrapped in a handsome frame. We enjoyed the TV for sports, gaming, and most other content. However, its difficulty with 24fps film content and the issues we experienced with its "frame dimming" feature make it feel a bit unfinished, lacking the luxury experience we expect from Sony's second in command.
Great TV gets better with GOOGLE TV
TV picture itself is great, like most TV's today. With OTA the quality is amazing, but cable still looks great too. The are a ton of options to fool with the picture that I have yet to tackle except for true motion which I turned off (Like every TV that has this, makes any show look like a soap opera)
Play a little nicer with the internet
The 55 inch GA6400 is the second largest model in LG's mid-teir Google TV seires. It has the standard Smart TV feature set that is included in most of LG's TVs and Google TV as well. Those two things alone mean it is a feature packed television. Google TV means it will play a little nicer with the internet, as well has having a wider choice of apps. LG made sure the picture quality was not going to disappoint either.
Commendable color performance
The GA6400 series delivers an attractive picture, convincing passive 3D, enjoyable web-browsing, and streamlined access to content. Searching for movies through several providers is easier than ever, and LG's Magic Remote takes the headache out of web browsing on a TV. Effective voice vontrol, efficient gesture functions, a handy scroll wheel, and a full remote keypad combine for a tasty shmorgishborg of easy interfacing.
This size is an excellent value offering for the screen space and picture quality at the price
We are impressed to see it toting a 120Hz panel for fast action performance. It is quite the plus for a budget model and a good reason to give this set another look. The LN5400 series is the perfect candidate for those who view 3D and Smart TV features as unnecessary bells and whistles but still want a full HD resolution picture.
Clunky and plain... but it could be worse
The LN5400 series does a lot of things right: the menu is stuffed with options; the Picture Wizard calibrator is a useful addition to any display; the simple design avoids fashion faux pas; and the colors on-screen are accurate and perfectly balanced. Unfortunately, this entry-level line-up is more focused on usability than picture quality.
With a very narrow contrast ratio and permanent 120 Hz motion enhancement, this is not a TV for movie lovers.
I have owned three tv's (this is my second JVC)and it is a definite step ahead of any previous set I've owned. I'm very pleased with the ease of setup (3 minutes from box to TV stand)! The picture size is the factor weighing the most in my decision to purchase this product-I have issues with my eyes-and I'm not regretting buying it at all. The 3D sound wasn't for me, but I had it all customized in minutes and haven't had to tweak anything. Kudos.
Color integrity, motion performance, and viewing angle are actually above average
Right off the bat, we feel it's necessary to point out that $800 for a 47-inch LCD is pretty fair. You'd pay about the same amount for a 2012 Samsung of the same size. This TV is very basic, but if it's within your budget range, it will get the job done.
From a picture quality standpoint, this isn't the top-tier of tech, but we've seen much worse. This JVC offers the full range of colors, accurately and richly, without any bunk processing or oversharpening.
Google G3 TV
The overall experience of using Google TV is same between the two models (I have written a review for GA6400 already), so I will list the advantages of this series:
1. Definitely better looking and more sleek. It's all black with a very thin black bezel around it. My initial impression was its the 42 inch screen, since the overall size is markedly smaller than GA6400 (that has almost an inch of silver bezel all around).
2. Superior sound quality with 2.1 speakers.
Smart TV + Google TV
This 55 inch model is part of LG's greatly expanded line of LED televions equipped with Google TV. This enhances the user experience of the TV in a big way. Google TV adds the full Chrome web browser, searching ease, voice recognition and more to your TV, making for a fuller online experience to your living room. The 55GA7900 even has access to the Android marketplace so many apps you use on a smartphone or tablet can be run right on your TV.
