LG 60PH6700

Take a thrill ride in your living room

In any TV maker's lineup there are always a couple models that occupy the sweet spot — the best balance of performance, features and price. In LG's 2013 plasma TV family, we like the 60PH6700. It's a lot of TV for the money. Straight out of the box you'll enjoy a ridiculously good 2D picture, plus the option for an even more immersive 3D experience when you add some of LG's 3D glasses.

Up-to-the-minute Smart TV features

The 60PH6700's built-in web apps give you instant access to a nearly limitless selection of entertainment — streamed video from services like Netflix®, Vudu®, and Hulu Plus™, music from Pandora® and Rhapsody®, social networking, and lots more. LG's user-friendly TV/web interface makes navigation a piece of cake.

LG's latest Magic Remote is no ordinary "clicker"

The 60PH6700 comes with LG's redesigned motion-sensing Magic Remote. We liked last year's version, and this new one is even better. The gesture control capability makes it easy to search and select web entertainment just by pointing and clicking. It's very similar to using a wireless videogame controller or an air mouse. Other nice touches include a scroll wheel and a built-in microphone for voice commands. The Magic Remote really shines with this set's Smart TV features. When you're used to navigating your computer screen with a mouse or trackpad, an old-school button-based TV remote feels kind of clunky in comparison.

The pros of plasma

If you're into picture quality, and you want a cinema-like home viewing experience, you owe it to yourself to check out plasma for your next TV. Plasma holds the edge when it comes to smooth motion and rich colors — high-def movies and TV shows look effortlessly real. Plasma's superior picture contrast and deep black levels are best enjoyed in rooms without a lot of windows or lamps, where you can dim or darken the lights.
