I had heard so many good things about LG's latest 3D HDTVs that I couldn't wait to try one myself. The 55-inch LG 55LM6700 (estimated $1650 street price as of 7/30/2012) is one of the company's new midrange LED edge-lit sets, offering a 120Hz refresh rate, passive-glasses 3D viewing, an impressive range of connected features, and a motion-controlled remote. It's also a pretty set to look at even when it's turned off, with a thin silver bezel that acts as an ultraslim frame for an edge-to-edge picture. Alas, what I found when I reviewed the 55LM6700 was unexceptional image quality and a revolutionary remote control that caused more problems than it solved. I was left disappointed. Lab Tests: Picture, Sound, and Energy Consumption The five judges in the PC World Labs' image quality tests found that the 55LM6700 displayed good but not great pictures. In particular, the set had problems when those pictures moved quickly. In our motion test, in which a blueprint pans horizontally across the screen, the image was, in the words of one judge, "as clear as mud."
LG's potent 55LM6700 slices out price-boosting filler for lean and mean performance from one of the best edge-lit LCD panels we've seen yet.Last year Samsung put LG on notice as it introduced its D8000 series of 3D edge-lit LED TVs. We reviewed the UN55D8000 and found its near-absence of bezel appropriately stunning, but were a little disappointed by some inconsistencies in the set's brightness and some rather obvious bleeding of light at the (almost non-existent) edges.LG has now answered back with the introduction of its new Cinema Screen line of TV's. Sporting a bezel thickness of just 5mm, the four models in the line just barely manage to “edge out” Samsung by a mere .003 inches. As cool as that may be, the TV has to do a lot more than look pretty while mounted on the wall in order to get a good rating from us. Does the 55LM6700 manage excel where Samsung's model fell a little short? How about the passive 3D performance and ease-of-use considerations? Read on to find out how this new set from LG fared during our evaluation.We get nervous at the thought of an expensive display making a cross-country voyage in the hands of one of the nation's big shippers.
LG's 55LM6700 is a 55-inch LED-backlit HDTV oozes style and is packed with features. You get passive 3D with six bundled pairs of glasses, integrated Wi-Fi with LG's myriad apps and streaming media services, an almost completely flat front panel, and a unique new motion-based remote. At $2,299.99 (list) it's not cheap, but its large screen, satisfying picture, and many features make it very appealing to anyone looking for a do-it-all big-screen HDTV. DesignWith a single, flat pane of glass that sits flush on the front of the HDTV, the 55LM6700 is almost without a bezel. Its only exception is the very thin metal the frames the glass on three sides, which is a bit thicker at the bottom edge of the screen. Besides those details, the HDTV is smooth and flat. You'll find a group of controls on right side of the set, behind the screen's edge. Inputs live on the back of the TV facing left and down. Four HDMI and three USB ports, the latter of which are conveniently marked HDD In, USB Hub, and USB Apps, face left for easy access, and optical audio, cable, component and composite video (both 3.5mm ports that use included adapters to RCA connectors), VGA, and Ethernet ports face down. This set offers plenty of connectivity options; none of the connectors faces directly back, so it's easy to wall mount.
