3D Technology Checklist
This product is 3D-related. To help you get a great 3D experience, use the checklist below to ensure you have everything you need. 3D viewing requires:
|A Display |
First, you'll need a 3D-ready display--whether it's a 3D HDTV, 3D projector, or 3D computer monitor. These displays have more processing power than standard 2D models for displaying 3D images in rapid succession.
|A Source |
Your display may be ready for 3D playback, but you'll still need a device to read 3D content. This can be a cable box with a subscription to a 3D channel, a 3D Blu-ray Disc player, or a PlayStation 3 system.
|3D Content |
3D content--the actual entertainment, in other words--will be played back using the source mentioned above, whether it's a 3D broadcast from your cable provider, a 3D Blu-ray Disc, or a 3D video game.
|3D Glasses |
For now, the vast majority of 3D HDTVs require glasses for 3D viewing. Many use powered "active shutter" glasses, others polarized "passive" glasses. You'll need one pair per viewer, and they'll have to be compatible with your display, whether they're the same brand, or a pair of "universal" glasses designed to work across brands.
|HDMI Cable |
To connect your source (such as a 3D Blu-ray Disc player) to your display, you'll need a high-speed HDMI cable. Cables with this designation feature bandwidth speeds up to 10.2 Gbps (gigabits per second), for carrying the 3D signal without any loss of quality.
If you want to get more information about 3D, shop our 3D products, watch videos, or interact with other customers, we invite you to visit 3D 101, our customer center about everything 3D.
Internet-ready TVs use your broadband connection to deliver dynamic content, whether it's streaming video from Netflix, new music from Pandora, or a quick glance at today's weather forecast.
Although there is overlap, each manufacturer offers a unique bundle of free or paid services, including streaming video and music, social networking apps, online photo galleries, news and financial updates, weather info, sports scores, and a variety of other smartphone-like applications.
Manufacturers continue to add new content to their offerings, keeping customers current through firmware updates, and making a bit of research a prudent step in your buying decision.
Learn more about Internet TVs, how they work, what services are offered by different manufacturers, and exactly what you'll need to get started at our Internet TV 101 customer center.

SAVE MORE THAN ENERGY.
Earning the ENERGY STAR means a product meets strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy. For TVs, it means they save energy both in standby and active (when they're on) modes. ENERGY STAR–qualified TVs use about 30% less energy than standard units.
FIND THE PERFECT PICTURE.

VIEW IT IN THE RIGHT LIGHT.
Let your TV do the adjustments for you. Intelligent Sensor automatically optimizes the picture to the lighting and color conditions in the room for a more enjoyable viewing experience.
WISE AND NOT WASTEFUL.
With our Smart Energy Saving Features, you can conserve money and energy.
LG's ISFccc Ready HDTVs contain the detailed standards necessary for professional calibration of brightness, contrast, tint, sharpness, color levels and much more to meet local lighting conditions for both daytime and nighttime viewing. Settings are added to preset modes for easy access from your LG remote.
^ Wireless Internet connection & certain subscriptions required and sold separately. The Magic Motion Remote does not come equipped wtih all LG Smart TV enabled TVs and a separate purchase may be required. The Hulu Plus service is projected to be available via a firmware update in June 2011. The LG web browser does not support Flash 10 or HTML 5, therefore, access to certain web content may be limited or unavailable.
** For a small percentage of the population, the viewing of stereoscopic 3D video technology may cause discomfort such as headaches, dizziness or nausea. If you experience any symptoms, discontinue using the 3D functionality and contact your health care provider.

Top Customer Reviews
Bought this TV because of its glowing reviews and it did deliver, as expected.
Picture Quality: Above Average -> Great. It's on par with Sharp's and Vizio's best models. Edge LED lighting leaves a little bit to be desired in terms of artifacts and black/white levels, but I'd be surprised if its noticed by the average viewer. It's does light and colors really well. Local dimming and tru-motion makes movie and TV watching an absolute blast.
Sound: This TV surprising packs some wallop behind its audio. Definitely not surround sound material, but on par with basic soundbars. I was impressed to say the least -- quite possibly one of the best out-of-the-box audio for thin LED TV's.
Passive 3d: The bonafide specialty of this set. LG does not lie when they say they do the best 3d around -- it really is exceptional, even with just using its 2d-3d feature. This can make even Netflix streaming pop out of your screen. And did I mention it can make YouTube videos look absolutely phenomenal? If you're after 3d, I doubt you can get much better than this set for the cost in the foreseeable future.
Gaming: It's fatal flaw. Keep in mind it does have a game mode, and if you turn every feature off, you can get between 20-50ms input lag. While this is acceptable, perhaps even barely noticeable for most casual games such as RPG's, Adventures, etc, it borders between tolerable and annoying for fighting and FPS games where player input timing is more strict. Sadly, I'm the latter type of gaming fan.Read more ›
The drawbacks aren't very many and they're not too much of a game-changer. One, there are no audio outputs from the tv other than an optical output. If you have a legacy sound system that doesn't have an optical input, it's not the end of the world. For an extra ~$25 or so you can get a stereo adapter that transfers the optical signal to coax or composite RCA analog. $100 to get yourself one that'll do dolby surround (which I had to do). It was a bit off-putting, and I was tempted to just get a new home theater system, but it was necessary for me to get (and save a couple hundred more dollars) who has a ton of extra gaming and video devices that I use. It's easier to just run an audio out from the television to the home theater system and plug everything into the tv to not have to mess with too many settings. I think you'll find audio output sparsity with most newer sets anyway. Digital age is taking over, I suppose.
The 2D to 3D features on this set are, well, hilarious. I have to commend the programmers who designed this set as I'm sure trying to write code to fit every visual situation will have a few coding hiccups, and over all it is a great feature. With very well-defined images, i.e. a strong foreground, a background, a middle ground subject, the forcing of the 3d image from a 2d image works amazingly. It doesn't bring anything towards you, mind, but will definitely push the backgrounds back for a pretty believable and often stunning picture. But, there are times when the image on the screen gets kind of confused and makes an approximation. This happens particularly often with women's shirts with words on them.Read more ›
I'm one of the people who don't like the active shutter glasses. primarily because I wear glasses already and adding a heavy second pair bothered me. My cousin purchases the sony 3d tv with active shutter glasses and I can say first hand that after watching 2/3 of avatar 3d I had a splitting headache. this pretty well told me active shutter wasn't for me. I blamed the headache on the weight of the glasses more then the shutter. however I can't prove that. what I can say is that after reviewing the differences in 3d I decided that passive 3d was for me. my reason for this is that I was able to watch 3d avatar at the theater without getting a headache so I thought since it was the same technology it should work. well it's been 3 day since i've had the lg passive 3d tv and after watching avatar, despicable me, and tangled I can say NO headaches!!!!!! I can also tell you the 3d quality may be equal to theater real3d but doesn't have the sharpness of active shutter 3d. I know I gave up quality for no headaches or eye strain. But i'm ok with that as I think the quality of passive 3d is of more value to me then having to wear heavy 3d glasses. There is also a large bonus of being able to bring home the 3d glasses from hoyts and reagal theaters to have spares.
what I didn't expect:
in the past I have owned sharp, samsung, sony and now an LG tv. in all previous cases I always used my bose theater system for sound as I'm sure everyone can contest tv's suck for sound. there isn't any depth or quality and usually they sound like talking into a can.
with LG I was seriously surprised. the sound quality was far better than my samsung 40 led tv. is it as good as the bose system? Heck no!Read more ›
