Conclusion Outstanding HD picture quality, solid 3D, and copious features are all characteristics of any flagship HDTV line, and the LG 55LA8600 doesn't disappoint. It may not get as bright as the more affordable Panasonic TC-L55ET60 and its picture...

After you hit Play, for a bigger and better resolution image, click the round "gear" icon and choose 720p and then pick Full Screen.
