Very, Very Good - now includes Amazon Instant App
We really like this set. Size-wise, this is perfect for our room - 55" was the way for us to go. However, if you're on the fence between 55" & 60", look at price as well - as of June 2013, there is minimal difference in price between the two - this may help with a decision. Picture quality is fantastic, and the interface is very fast.
Despite a lackluster contrast, content looks great on this TV
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.
Excellent panel and image
If we had any real complaints, they were around a few of the smart TV elements. The voice search worked OK, but it had one or two issues understanding us, and, as we said, the layout wasn't the slickest we've seen.
Weirdly, if you're in settings mode at all, the set exits back to the TV channels by default, rather than taking you back to the smart TV area if that's what you were in. The same goes if you click the exit button on an app.
Superb 3D visuals, powerful sound
With the LG 55LA8600 and Samsung UA55F8000 both priced at S$4,899, it was a very close fight between these LED TVs. An alternative would be the Sony Bravia KDL-55W954, but take note that it is pricier at S$5,699. In the end, the LA8600's functional design, extra features and solid 3D visuals became the deciding factors, giving the LG better overall value and performance. If you're looking for a strong all-rounder, this model should be your first choice.
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.
Offers plenty of apps to deliver content, news, and games
The TC-L50E60 fits nicely into the E60 series. This 50 inch 1080p TV is a good candidate for those not interested in 3D playback. It's got a native 120Hz panel, so sports and fast action aren't going to be a problem. The Viera Connect suite is present with built in wifi. This solves any problems when it come to getting content on your TV. This TV gives a lot of bang for the buck.
Picture quality looks very attractive
Not everyone can afford a company's top-of-the-line flagship model, so it's nice that Panasonic offers the E60 series, with its wide array of big displays. If you have giant TVs on the brain, but your billfold needs a break, the 50-inch E60 (MSRP $1149.99) can be found online for $1,000. Picture quality like this doesn't exactly make my heart skip a beat, but on a 50-inch display with ample streaming options and a tame going-rate, this is a solid value.
Viera Connect provides good selection of internet streaming options
I must say, that I enjoyed my time with the Panasonic TC-L42E60. It not only provides a very good viewing experience for TV programs and Blu-ray/DVD content, but its abundant internet and network streaming capabilities opens up a lot more entertainment possibilities that can be accessed via the very easy to use customizable menu system.
Impressive return on invested dollar
Summing up, based on picture size and quality for the price I paid, I'd have to give the Vizio two thumbs way up! The true test will be over time but for now, I have no problem in giving the Vizio 5 stars. Something else I found interesting is there was no detailed manual that came with the Vizio, only a quick setup guide which was handy. In order to get the big manual will require you to go online and download all 45 pages or some such.
Lots of options for image-tweakers
Which is better: a mammoth TV with a mediocre picture, or a smaller TV with a great picture? If you're in the camp that believes size trumps all, Vizio has just the LCD. The Vizio E601I-A3 spans a whopping 60 inches, yet sells for under a grand. Your budget wins, even though your eyes will wish you'd spent a bit more.
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.
Curiously charming for an entry-level unit
The Sony Bravia KDL-32R400A (MSRP $330) was one of those really disappointing TVs to review, because it came so close to being excellent. The contrast ratio and color quality I tested were well beyond the expected level of performance when dealing with entry-level, but egregious motion and viewing problems really count this TV out.
While it's not a theater shoe-in, a Kuro killer, or even a smart graduation present, the R400A is not without an audience.
