LG LM9600 review: LG LM9600

 

LG LM9600

The ; TV is an incredibly striking piece of furniture with one of the slimmest bezels we've ever seen. Color reproduction is excellent, after a bit of tweaking. The Magic Motion controller has its quirks but is the best Smart TV navigator out there....

The LM9600 doesn't perform up to its flagship TV pricing or the expectations created by its full-array local-dimming backlight. Its black levels are significantly worse than those of last year's LG flagship, it suffers from blotchy uniformity, and in...

While it's got supermodel looks and pricing to match, the LG LM9600 is unfortunately only an amateur performer.

LG 55LM9600

 

The LG LM9600 series is an attractive and full-featured line of LED-backlit LCD HDTVs, but the picture quality isn't worth the high price.

Beautiful design. Plenty of online services and apps. Comes with six pairs of 3D glasses.

Expensive. Middling picture quality. Disappointing 3D.

The LG 55LM9600 is one of the most attractively designed HDTVs we've seen this year, but its high price and middling picture quality make it a much less appealing screen than both similarly priced and much less expensive HDTVs. The Samsung UN46ES8000F...

LG 60LM9600

 

The 60-inch LG 60LM9600, the second-largest installment of LG's LM9600 series, has a local dimming LED backlight and improved passive 3D technology. As it's a relatively high-end model, it's also decked out with the Smart TV platform, which includes a...

The 84-inch 84LM9600 got a lot of the press at CES, but rest of the LM9600 series has nothing to be ashamed of either. The LG 60LM9600 gets points for its thin 5mm bezel, dual-core processor and Smart TV suite. LG has improved its Magic Remote from...

LG 55LM9600 3D LCD HDTV

 

LG recently launched a new range of local dimming models with full LED backlighting carrying the Nano designation. This technology imbeds the LED clusters in a membrane behind the screen and is said to produce the benefits of full local dimming,...

A great TV overall, but smart buyers might want to wait on a price drop.

LG 55LM9600

 

Excellent picture quality. Very good network content including "2nd Display". Excellent 3D crosstalk rejection. Great "Magic Motion" remote interface.

No analog audio output for use with external sound system. Subjectively smaller 3D picture due to need to sit farther away.

LG's top-of-the-line 2012 TV, the 55LM9600, features extraordinary style, excellent picture quality and some cutting-edge new technology.

LG has produced the season's style stunner in the 55LM9600 television. But is its performance equally beautiful? Oh yes.

LG's 55LM9600 TV is the best yet from that company, and in many ways challenges the best available from any other brand.

Excellent performance with 3D, Extremely good 2D picture performance, Lots of network features, Clever Dual Play for dual-play split-screen gaming, Good IPTV selection, Attractive design

Reduced vertical resolution when watching 3D content, Narrow vertical viewing angle for 3D
