It's 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.

love it and hate it at the same time

miguel d from los angeles, ca on 8/16/2012

the google (android) interface is nice and fairly familiar to use. there aren't too many apps but i'm sure more will come. netflix works well but doesn't have some features that the ps3 version has (like auto starting next episode). the remote is tricky to get used to but channel surfing is terrible. you only get channel up, channel down. the closest you have to tuning directly to a channel is using the scroll wheel to cycle quickly. even the recall button (view previous channel) is missing. you can flip the remote and use the tiny digits on the far left and enter on the far right but doing so in the dark is very hard. the remote could use a backlight to help. the mouse cursor is extremely annoying when you try to watch tv from the bed, any movement makes the cursor appear on the screen. we were able to use the remote from our second lg tv, but recall doesn't work when used on this remote, direct channel surfing works and using arrows to navigate googletv interface works too. if the remote had normal digits in the front and used the extra space to make the keys a little larger (and no second set of digits on the back), then the remote would be 100 times better and more usable. lg messed up on this one the speakers rattle at low volumes 12 of 100 so sound quality is terrible at best. i've never had a 3d tv before nor really seen many 3d movies, but i've used it a little on this and it works fine. i find 3d makes me dizzy so i could care less. it comes with 3 pairs of glass

Pros: google tv, downloadable apps, netflix works, good web browser, creative remote control

Cons: poor sound, remote control could be a little bigger and have a backlight and a switch to disable cursor

Video Features

Edge-Lit LED Technology: LG's edge-lit LED technology provides a slim profile and delivers amazing brightness, clarity and color detail, as well as greater energy efficiency compared to conventional LCD TVs.

Triple XD Engine: The LG Google series (G2) LED-LCD TV utilizes LG's exclusive Triple XD Engine video processing system for optimum picture quality. The Triple XD Engine delivers a dynamic contrast ratio of 6,000,000:1 for stunning colors and deep blacks, so the TV's images are crisp, rich, and vibrant.

TruMotion 120Hz: TruMotion 120Hz provides clear, smoother images, even during fast action scenes crating a more crisper picture. TruMotion 120Hz technology lets you see sports, video games, and high-speed action with virtually no motion blur; letting the LED-LCD TV keep up with your fast- moving entertainment.

HDTV Tuner: The TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Digital Cable (QAM) tuners, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.

1080p Video Resolution: The LG Google series (G2) LED-LCD TV has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080. All of the television's video inputs are displayed at 1920 x 1080 (1080p); regardless of input signal. The LG LED-LCD HDTV features HDMI (v.1.4), Component, and Composite video inputs.

  • HDMI (v.1.4 with Deep Color): The four HDMI (v.1.4) inputs can be used to connect a DVD player, Blu-ray player, or satellite/cable box with an HDMI output. The HDMI 4 input can also be used to connect a device with a DVI output (a DVI-to-HDMI adapter cable is necessary). If a DVI-equipped device is used, a separate audio cable will also be needed from the device to the "PC/DVI Audio In" 3.5mm stereo audio jack. No audio cables are needed for an HDMI-equipped device. The HDMI jack will accept 1080p (60/24Hz), 1080i, 720p, and 480p video signals; as well as support Deep Color, x.v.Color, and 3D content. The television's HDMI inputs do not accept 480i video signals.
  • Component Video: The Component Video input will accept 1080p (60/24Hz), 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.
  • Composite: The composite video input will accept 480i only. The composite audio/video terminal consists of an AV 3.5mm connector and a 6" mini-to-composite video/stereo RCA adapter.

24p Real Cinema: Makes video clips recorded in a film look more natural by eliminating judder effect. DVD and Blu-ray movies are filmed at 24 frames per second (fps). With 24p Real Cinema, every frame is consistently processed 5 times in 1/24 of a second producing 120 fps with TruMotion or 2 times in 1/24 of a second producing 48 fps without TruMotion, thus totally eliminating the judder effect.

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: The included 3D glasses (6 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 with Depth Control: 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).
  • Two-Player 3D Gaming: Gamers can enjoy two-player 3D 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 (sold separately; not included).

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.

Picture Size (Aspect Ratio): You can select a different aspect ratio depending on input source (analog broadcasting, digital broadcasting, video input).

  • 16:9: Resizes the image ratio to fit 16:9 screen.
  • Just Scan: Displays high-quality image without loss. Only available in DTV, HDMI, or Component (over 720p) mode).
  • Set by Program: Depending on the input signal, screen aspect ratio changes to 4:3 or 16:9.
  • 4:3: Resizes the image ratio to fit 4:3 screen.
  • Zoom: Resizes the image to fit the screen width. The top and bottom parts of the image may be cut off.
  • Cinema Zoom: Formats an image to the cinemascope ratio (2.35:1) and zooms in on the ratio.

Picture Wizard II (Picture Control): This feature lets you adjust the picture quality of the original image. The LG Google series (G2) 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. This feature takes the guesswork out of picture adjustments.

Picture Modes: The LG LED-LCD TV provides auto, preset, and manual adjustment of the television's picture settings.

  • Intelligent Sensor: Let the TV do the adjustments for you. Intelligent Sensor automatically optimizes the picture to the lighting and color conditions in the room for a more enjoyable viewing experience. The LG LED-LCD TV's Intelligent Sensor automatically optimizes the picture to the lighting and color conditions in the room for a more enjoyable viewing experience. Unlike other sensors which can only sense brightness of ambient light, LG's "Intelligent Sensor" uses 4,096 sensing steps to evaluate its surroundings. Using a sophisticated algorithm, the LG processes picture quality elements including brightness, contrast, color, sharpness and white balance. The result is a picture optimized for its surroundings, more pleasing to watch and which can also save up to 50% in power consumption.
  • Presets: Easy to use factory presets for picture mode settings include Standard (provides optimum viewing for general use), Vivid (maximizes the effect of the video by strengthening the contrast/brightness/color/sharpness), Cinema (optimizes video for watching videos), Game (provides fast response speed for fast gaming system).
  • User Adjustment: This mode allows you to adjust the video quality settings manually. Backlight (adjusts the brightness of the backlight behind the LED-LCD screen), Contrast (increase or decrease the gradient of the video signal), Brightness (adjusts the base level of the signal in the picture) Sharpness (adjusts the level of crispness in the edges between the light and dark areas of the picture), Color (adjusts intensity of all colors), Tint (adjusts the balance between red and green levels), Color Temp (set to warm to enhance hotter colors such as red, or set to cool to enhance cooler colors such as blue).
  • Expert Mode: The LG LED-LCD TV is ISFccc Ready and contains the detailed standards necessary for professional calibration of brightness, contrast, tint, sharpness, color levels and much more to meet local lighting conditions for both day and nighttime viewing. Settings are added to preset Expert 1/2 modes for easy access from your LG remote.

Picture Improvement Technology (Advanced Control): Advanced Control allows you to adjust some of the advanced video features of the LG LED-LCD TV.

  • Dynamic Contrast: Adjusts the contrast to keep it at the best level according to the brightness of the screen. The picture is improved by making bright parts brighter and dark parts darker.
  • Dynamic Color: Adjusts screen colors so that they look livelier, richer and clearer. This feature enhances hue, saturation and luminance so that red, blue and green white look more vivid.
  • Clear White: Makes the white area of screen brighter.
  • Preferred Color: Set the Skin, Grass, and Sky color independently.
  • Super Resolution: Provides a crystal-clear picture by impr0ving the details in an area that has a blurry or unclear picture.
  • Gamma: You can adjust the brightness of dark areas and middle gray level areas of the picture.
  • Color Gamut: Maximizes the utilization of colors to increase color quality.
  • Edge Enhancer: Shows clearer and distinctive, yet natural edges of the video.
  • x.v.YCC: This feature produces richer colors from x.v.YCC compatible sources.
  • Expert Pattern: Patterns used for expert adjustment.
  • Color Filter: This function filters specific colors in the video. You can use the RGB filter to set color saturation and hue accurately.
  • Color Management System: A tool that allows you to make adjustments by using test patterns; this does not affect other colors, but can be used to selectively adjust the 6 color areas (Red/Green/Blue/Cyan/Mgt/Yellow).

Additional Picture Options:  Additional picture options include:

  • Noise Reduction: Reduces screen noise without compromising video quality.
  • Digital Noise Reduction: Removes noise caused by compressing video.
  • Black Level: Sets the black level of the screen to the proper level.
  • Eye Care: Adjusts the brightness of the screen to prevent the screen from being too bright. Dims extremely bright pictures.

Audio Features

Sound Optimizer: This function optimizes the sound based on the environment in which the TV is installed (Normal, Wall-Mount, Stand).

Virtual Surround: Infinite 3D Surround is a patented LG proprietary sound processing technology that delivers immersive 5.1 surround sound with just two front speakers.

Sound Modes: Sound Mode lets you enjoy the best sound without any special adjustment using factory presets. Standard, Music, Cinema, Sport, Vivid, and Game are preset for optimum sound quality. You can also adjust the TV's sound manually by using the 5-band EQ (100Hz, 300Hz, 1khz, 3khz, 10kHz).

Clear Voice II: Clear Voice II enhances and amplifies the frequency range of the human voice to help keep dialogue audible when background noise swells.

Auto Volume: Auto Volume makes sure that the volume level remains consistent whether you are watching a commercial or a regular TV program. Because each broadcasting station has its own signal conditions, volume adjustment may be needed every time the channel is changed. This feature allows users to enjoy stable volume levels by making automatic adjustments for each program.

AV Sync: If the video and sound of the television are not synced, you can adjust the delay of the audio output to match the video.

Digital Audio Output: The optical digital output terminal will output Dolby Digital (when available) or 2 channel PCM. The digital optical output terminal only sends an audio signal in Dolby Digital when receiving Dolby Digital surround sound from a digital broadcast channel through the TV tuner or Google TV. The optical digital audio output will only output in 2ch stereo from sources connected to the television via HDMI, RCA, or USB.
