Pros:Polarized Glasses
Wider Viewing Angle
Magic Motion Remote
Full Web Browser
Free Apps

Cons:On screen keyboard can be hard to use.

The Bottom Line: An excelent TV for the price with very few flaws.


This TV is very easy to use and has many features that, in my mind, put it a step above the competition.  LG is currently one of the only brands using the polarized glasses as opposed to the active shutter glasses.  Polarized glasses do not use batteries and allow for a much wider viewing angle of the 3D TV.  Because the glasses are polarized they are also much cheaper than active shutter glasses.  Where Samsung glasses are $50.00 each for battery powered glasses and up to $100.00 each for rechargeable, LG glasses are only $25.00 for two sets of glasses.  Also, LG is one of the only brands that include glasses with the TV.  Most companies are requiring consumers to purchase glasses separately.  LG is including four pairs of their glasses with the TV.  Another feature that I am pleased with is the entire Internet interface.  LG has a lot of apps that can be used for free as well as additional apps that can be purchased.  It also includes a full web browser with a magic motion remote, which is similar to Wii remote.  The magic motion remote takes the place of a mouse to a computer.  Instead of dragging a mouse around on a desk, you simply aim the magic motion remote at the screen.  When the arrow is over whatever it is that you want to click on, you hit the "select" button. It is very easy to use and makes the internet browsing, as well as a lot of the apps, much easier and much more fun.  The only thing that I was not thrilled with is the on screen keyboard that you have to use to type.  Using the magic motion remote to aim at each individual letter that you want to type can be an annoying and tedious task.  This is where Samsung got a leg up on LG.  On some of the higher end Samsung TVs, the remote has a full QWERTY keyboard on the back.  Their is an app for both the Android and Iphone market that allows you to use a full keyboard with the TV, but they have not worked out all of the flaws quite yet.
