Item # 68960L7400 | MFR # 60LA7400
This item is no longer available.
With its almost frameless look, LG's 60LA7400 is one of the most striking TVs we've seen this year. And its picture quality is just as exceptional. This model uses direct-lit LED backlighting with local dimming, which responds instantly as scenes get brighter or darker. The result is consistently high picture contrast with deep black levels. The other key feature is TruMotion 240Hz refresh rate, which keeps video motion looking smooth and clear, even with fast-action sports.
LG offers some of the web-savviest TVs available. The 60LA7400'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. A dual-core processor really speeds up web browsing and app multitasking. LG's user-friendly TV/web interface makes navigation a piece of cake.
The 60LA7400 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.
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 47LA7400 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 Cinema 3D is perfect for enjoying theater-like 3D movies and video games with the family. And because this TV is Full HD in both 2D and 3D, you get an extraordinary picture no matter what you are watching.
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.

Average Customer Review(s):
AWESOME T.V.!!!!!!!!! Great picture & features. LOVE IT!
Pros: LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT!!!!
Cons: NONE that we're aware of at this time.
This is an excellent TV. It has a great picture and lots of extra features. The Blu-Ray and 3D is awesome and really brings you into the picture. I purchased this set on scratch and dent, and, as always, I was more than pleased that someone else sent it back for a tiny scratch and I got a great discount! I do agree with other reviews that I have read about the magic remote. While it has its advantages, a regular remote would outweigh those by far.
Pros: Great Picture, Lots of Apps and extras, Excellent Blu-Ray and 3D
Cons: Magic Remote just ok
We are absolutely loving this TV. The 3D is fun and Dual Play is really cool with Black Ops 2! I was concerned at first that the picture modes would be a difficult task to get around, but the switching is already second nature. I really didn't think I wanted a 240 HZ tv but it's great. When we watch the Pixar or other animations the "soap opera" clarity is welcome and when I want a grainy film I can easily switch it off! I think this one is a best of both worlds screen for us. Shawn made understanding everything easy and helped address my concerns.
Pros: Passive 3D is inexpensive and works as well as any other TV I've seen so far!
Cons: None yet.
Great TV . . . .The 3D is awesome our grand kids love it.
Pros: 3D glasses just like Imax. Very reasonable to buy more. Smart TV features
It's an awesome TV. Easy to use, smart functions user friendly

Direct-Lit LED Technology: Direct-Lit LED backlight technology bridges the gap between lower-cost CCFL (fluorescent) LCD TVs and newer edge-lit LED-LCD TVs. LG's Direct-Lit LED-LCD televisions feature LEDs positioned all the way across the LCD panel's back plane (instead of along the side). Unlike "Full-Array" backlight LED-LCD televisions that also feature LEDs positioned along the LCD panel's back plane, the Direct-Lit LED technology uses fewer LEDs. Since there are fewer LEDs, the LCD panel's back plane must be moved farther away from the screen to provide adequate light coverage across the LCD panel, making the TV much deeper than an edge-lit LED-LCD television. Direct-Lit LED backlight technology offers a better picture and is more energy efficient than previous CCFL (fluorescent) LCD televisions, though it requires a much larger cabinet design than newer edge-lit LED-LCD TVs.
Local Dimming: LG provides even greater control of brightness through local dimming to deliver better contrast, amazing clarity, and color detail. Local dimming analyzes the signal of the input video by areas of the screen, and then adjusts the backlight to improve the contrast ratio.
TruMotion 240Hz: TruMotion 240Hz provides clear, smoother images, even during fast action scenes crating a more crisper picture. TruMotion 240Hz 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. You can choose between 4 modes - Smooth, Clear, Clear Plus, or User. The User mode lets you manually adjust the judder and blur.
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.
MHL Compatible: The HDMI 3 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 3 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. The TV's IR remote can be used to control basic playback functions (such as Play/Pause, Stop Fast Forward/Rewind, and Menu navigation). Your MHL compliant device will also charge while connected to the TV's HDMI 3 port. To find MHL-certified devices, go to www.mhlconsortium.org.
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.
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.
Picture Size (Aspect Ratio): You can select a different aspect ratio depending on input source (analog broadcasting, digital broadcasting, video input).
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. This feature takes the guesswork out of picture adjustments.
Picture Modes: The LG LED-LCD TV provides preset, user, and expert adjustment of the television's picture settings.
Advanced Picture Control: Advanced Picture Control allows you to adjust some of the advanced video features of the LG LED-LCD TV.
Picture Options: Additional picture options are available to enhance your viewing experience.
2.1Ch Speaker System: The LG LED-LCD TV features two down-firing full-range speakers and a rear-firing midbass woofer for fuller sound from a thin flat-panel television.
Sound Optimizer: This function optimizes the sound based on the environment in which the TV is installed (Normal, Wall-Mount, Stand).
Preset + 5-Band EQ: Sound Mode lets you enjoy the best sound without any special adjustment using factory presets. Standard, Music, Cinema, Sport, 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).
Audio Enhancements: The LG LED-LCD TV offers various audio adjustments to enhance your overall experience.
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.
Audio Outputs: The LG LED-LCD TV offers an optical digital output and 3.5mm headphone jack.
ARC (Audio Return Channel): The Audio Return Channel in HDMI 1.4 enables the TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to your A/V receiver; increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection. This feature allows audio to be sent from the television to your A/V receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio/video to the television. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to the TV. ARC allows audio from the TV tuner, Network connection, inserted USB device, HDMI inputs, or any analog connected device to be heard through your ARC compatible AV receiver via the television's HDMI ARC input. The audio from the TV's tuner, network connection, and USB port can pass as Dolby Digital or 2ch PCM. HDMI and analog connected devices will be output as 2ch PCM only.
Note: Both the television and the receiver must support ARC for this function to work properly. When connecting an A/V receiver that is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC), connect it to the TV's HDMI 1 input. If connecting a system that is incompatible Audio Return Channel (ARC), an additional audio connection via Digital Audio Out (Optical) is necessary.
Dual Core Processor: LG's dual core processor technology delivers the speed you need for faster web browsing, instant access to internet content, and quicker application processing. The dual core processor also supports multi-tasking, so you can watch your favorite shows and check social networks at the same time.
