The most important features of a 3D TV are picture quality and included features. The LG 3D Google TV combines clear picture quality and other features that go beyond 3D technology. With this LG LED TV, you get one of the top 3D TVs on the market, though it comes in few size options.
LG is a well-known manufacturer of quality LED TVs. In fact, LG manufactures many TV displays for store brand TVs. The LG 3D Google TV has a very good-looking display that falls just short of some of the best 3D TVs out there. Unfortunately, this 3D LED TV only has 47-inch and 55-inch sizes. If you want a bigger screen, you will need to shop a different TV.
This LG device runs passive 3D instead of active 3D. Passive 3D does downgrade picture quality a little, but most consumers barely notice a difference. Passive 3D separates the right and left side of the screen, the images are combined by the glasses. Your eyes are tricked and that’s how you experience the 3D. Passive 3D glasses tend to be more cost-friendly than the active 3D counterparts.
As this is a Google TV, it comes with Wi-Fi connectivity and smart TV functions. Web apps give you access to video streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Instant Video and Hulu Plus. Having access to these streaming services eliminates the need for extra devices, keeping your home entertainment system nice and tidy. This TV also has a powerful L9 dual-core processor, which keeps the 3D conversion and smart apps running smoothly.
The LG 3D Google TV is backed by the LG company. LG offers its customers a variety of ways to contact support for help – from live chat on the website, a toll-free telephone number, email and a FAQs section for independent research. You can also connect with other LG customers in forums for other support inquiries.
This LG LED TV does more than just display 3D content. The LG 3D Google TV heavily features internet streaming with built-in Wi-Fi and included web apps. The full high-definition display looks vibrant, although not as impressive as the best 3D TVs. However, the picture is good enough to display passive 3D without too many problems and still looks good in a home setting.
