LG's slim and stylish 55GA7900 harnesses the power of Google to create one of the most intuitive and engaging Internet-on-your-TV experiences yet. It uses some of LG's most advanced screen technologies to produce a fantastic picture, and wraps this high-performance package in one of this year's most visually striking designs.
Who knows more about making the web organized and accessible than Google? You can quickly search for content on your TV using Google Chrome. Connect to Google Play and now your music, books, movies, and apps from the Android market are all in one place.
Built-in apps give you instant access to a nearly limitless selection of entertainment — streamed video from services like Netflix®, HBO GO®, and Amazon Instant, music from Pandora® and Rhapsody®, social networking, and lots more. And surfing the web is a breeze with Google's Chrome browser.
The Google TV remote has controls on one side and a QWERTY keyboard on the other.
The 55GA7900 includes a special web-friendly remote control that provides a smarter Smart TV experience. Imagine a remote, a mouse and a keyboard all rolled into one. This is a motion-sensing remote, so you can wave and click to select apps and navigate menus. And you can type on the remote's QWERTY keyboard, which is really helpful for searching. Want to really impress your friends? Just say the name of your favorite website into the remote and there it is.
Enjoy the immersive 3D experience of the movie theater at home with LG's Cinema 3D technology. The 3D effects are impressive, and with 2D-to-3D conversion and 3D depth control, you get to choose how strong the 3D effect is. LG's passive 3D glasses are comfortable and lightweight, and 4 pairs are included with the 55GA7900 so your family and friends won't miss out on the fun. And don't forget that LG's 3D TVs are wonderful for 2D video, as well.
LG's latest screen technology also means that you can now enjoy two-player gaming on the same TV without the need for a split screen. Two players can compete independently and see the action on a full screen. Note: Two-player gaming mode requires LG's special AG-F310DP glasses which are sold separately.
Reason #1: Awesome picture quality. The LED backlights in these higher-end LCD TVs can give you better picture contrast and more lifelike colors than sets with typical fluorescent backlighting. Reason #2: They're more energy-efficient than plasma or regular LCD TVs, helping you lower your monthly electric bill and helping the environment.
picture looks pretty good. don't really see light bleeding like i had on the 8600. i have 5.1 LG surround sound system so i have not tried the tv speakers at all. very easy to setup. i like the new interface but i wish that it would hurry up and upgrade to the latest android OS. i have noticed that when i do a search in prime time, it doesn't pull up anything in nextflix, just google play. I'm not sure if im doing something wrong but that's what i noticed. There is a slight delay when going to menu screen. 3d looks good. Dual play feature is great as always.
Pros: picture quality, UI, features
Cons: delay when accessing menu, not the latest android OS
Excellent picture quality out of the box. Very easy setup. No pixelation observed during fast moving scenes in 2D (i.e. soccer, nascar). 3D picture quality is one of the best I have experienced. The 3D glasses are light and comfortable. Remote control one of the best I have seen. Nice keyboard layout. Fast response with Google TV. No noticeable delay so far. Very nice design (slim and frameless).
Pros: Picture quality in 2D and 3D, Remote control functionality, design, fast response with GoogleTV, audio quality
Cons: No lighted keypad on remote control

Edge LED Plus w/ Local Dimming: LG's LED Plus technology provides even greater control of brightness through edge LED lighting and local dimming to deliver better contrast, amazing clarity, and color detail. LED Plus analyzes the signal of the input video by areas of the screen, and then adjusts the backlight to improve the contrast ratio.

Video Inputs: The LG LED-LCD HDTV features HDMI, Component, and Composite video inputs. All of the television's video inputs are displayed at 1080p.
MHL Compatible: The HDMI 4 input is MHL compatible and designed for the connection of select mobile phones and other portable electronic devices. Simply plug your MHL compatible smartphone into the TV's HDMI 4 port using the HDMI cable that is included with your mobile phone. MHL allows you to display full 1080p video and still images on the LG TV from your mobile smartphone.

LG Cinema 3D: LG Cinema 3D offers amazing 3D depth with a brighter picture and better motion quality, plus flicker-free glasses, just like the movie theater. You get the same technology that powers the 3D films in the movie theater, right in your own home. LG Cinema 3D gives you wider viewing angles, meaning you get the same immersive 3D experience wherever you sit. The LED-LCD flat-panel TV's 3D picture begins with LG's proprietary Film-type Patterned Retarder (FPR) panel, which optimizes the separation of images for the left and right eyes. This polarized film is applied directly to the TV's screen enabling delivery of optimized images for both eyes. The images are then filtered through specially designed glasses to give you truly crisp, blur-free, flicker-free 3D images that leap of the screen. As a result, the 3D image looks 1080p and is clearer, brighter, flicker-free, and more comfortable to watch.
Note: This LG TV can display in 3D via 3D broadcasting or when the TV is connected to a 3D compatible device; such as a 3D-ready Blu-ray player with 3D content. The TV must be connected to your 3D source via HDMI (v.1.4) and you must wear the included passive 3D glasses in order to see these images in 3D (three-dimensional) format.
