Sophisticated TV with a great picture

Waldo from Wintergreen, VA on 10/2/2013

We wanted a smart TV for a bedroom, and got one that may be smarter than we are, with a great picture. This TV has it all, including the ability to stream netflix, etc., and to surf the web. The remote has conventional controls plus a virtual pointer and a keyboard. It takes a little while to get the hang of the controls, but then it works great. Only issue has been the speed of the processor for web activities. You have to have a really good wi-if connection for everything to work smoothly. Picture quality so great. Well suited for a bright room with the LED screen.

Pros: Good picture, lots of web capabilities

Cons: Difficulty figuring out remote, web signal strength.

The LG 42A6400

WillB from Shreveport, LA on 7/8/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Ordered this TV to replace a 40 inch Samsung which fell on bad times. Nice looking and setting it up for the first time was not easy since the instruction manual is not very well done. Trying to maneuver thru the e-menus took too much time and would have been much easier had a slightly more detailed printed explanation been included in the box. The remote control is fairly complex and searching the e-manual was frustrating for help. Having had the TV for almost a month now I am able to navigate much better but again this could have been done better. As far as the quality of the picture, fantastic. Sound quality is OK with the included speakers but when connected to the stereo receiver it has excellent sound. As for the apps from LG/Google for the TV there aren't many but will probably increase. The 3D is very good and I like the fact that the glasses are the passive variety. I like the ability to view 2D in 3D. Not as good as movies filmed in 3D but better than expected. I also liked the fact it was on a swivel and helps with viewing. If you need to have a PC connected it must be an HDMI compatible PC as attempts to convert the computer VGA to HDMI on the TV was not successful.

Pros: Great picture with very good 3D

Cons: Setup is difficult and after a month I'm still learning.

Good TV not so good smart TV

Dr.R. from Puerto Rico on 6/25/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Its an overall good TV. Not too eficient to surf the web. The browser got limitations. I call service they confirm that got limitations on pages with flash. The sound is ok but could be better. The 2d to 3d is less than impresive.

Pros: Good simple tv

Cons: Limitations as a smart tv. Not so good sound.

Triple XD Engine w/ 1080P Resolution: The LED-LCD TV utilizes LG's exclusive Triple XD Engine video processing system for crisp images and rich, vibrant colors. The LG LED-LCD TV has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p).

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.

  • Four HDMI Inputs: The four HDMI inputs will accept 1080p (60/24Hz), 1080i, 720p, and 480p video signals. The HDMI inputs not only allow you to connect your Blu-ray/DVD player or Satellite/Cable receiver to the TV, but also a laptop or computer.
  • Component Video: The Component Video input will accept 1080p (60Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals. The component video inputs consist of a 3.5mm jack and a 6" mini-to-component video adapter. This same component video output shares the audio signal with the composite audio/video terminal.

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.

  • Included 3D Glasses (AG-F310): The included 3D glasses (4 pair included) are just like the ones you get at the movie theater, so they are very lightweight and comfortable to wear. The 3D image formatting is done solely on the TV set, so the 3D glasses are passive (no batteries required) and don't need to be synced, enabling you to enjoy 3D images anywhere in your room and free from the interference of other objects. The passive 3D glasses design also lets you enjoy 3D images from any viewing angle; whether you are sitting on the couch or laying on floor.
  • 2D-to-3D Conversion: 2D (two-dimensional) images can be transformed to 3D (three-dimensional) images. If you are watching a 2D program, the television can transform those two-dimensional images to virtual 3D images (you must be wearing included 3D glasses).
  • 3D Depth/Viewpoint Control: You can adjust the 3D Depth between the foreground objects and the background. You can also adjust the 3D Viewpoint, making the 3D images closer or farther from the viewer.
  • Two-Player Gaming: Gamers can enjoy two-player 2D gaming on this one TV without the need for a split screen. Now, you and a friend can compete against one another independently and catch the action on a full screen. This feature requires special glasses (AG-F310DP, sold separately).

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.

  • 4:3: Resizes the image ratio to fit a 4:3 screen.
  • Zoom: Choose Zoom when you want to view the picture without any alteration. However, the top and bottom portions of the picture will be cropped.
  • Cinema Zoom: Choose Cinema Zoom when you want to enlarge the picture in correct proportion. This enlarges an image with cinemascope aspect ratio (2.35:1) without distortion.

Picture Wizard II (Picture Control): This feature lets you adjust the picture quality of the original image. The LG TV's Picture Wizard II (Easy Picture Calibration) offers self-calibration with on-screen reference points for key picture quality elements such as black level, color, tint, sharpness and backlight levels.
