Color is its strong suit, but with its lighter black levels and gamma that's not saying much.

I took the browser for a spin and actually found it more impressive than Samsung's, which I had previously called the best TV-based browser so far.

I performed a hands-on evaluation of the 55-inch 55LM6700, but this review also applies to the other screen size in the series.

Its 3D performance was typical for passive 3D TV: excellent in terms of crosstalk, but with some visible artifacts.

Photo/Music/Video. Features The LM6700 is LG's least expensive LED to include its LED+ local-dimming scheme, so you'd think it would offer better black-level performance than non-dimming sets like the LG G2.

contrast ratio

The two sizes have identical specs and according to the manufacturer should provide very similar picture quality.

It did preserve color accuracy well, however.

Reviews Word on the street

Read the review (May, 2012)
The issue wasn't accuracy so much as saturation: colors on the LM6700 lacked the vibrancy and depth of the other displays.

Panel

The LM7600 has a 120Hz panel, which combined with a scanning backlight equals, per LG, 240Hz.

The company's new interface makes compelling use of motion control with multiple "cards" on the home screen: a live TV window and an ad below, a non-customizable Premium card of the best Smart TV apps, one card for 3D World, and another for LG Smart World.

The LM6700 exhibited similar 3D picture quality to the LW5600 from last year.

Content

The app store, separate from the main Premium section, is now called "LG Smart World" for some reason, and as usual it holds mostly junk, with a few useful additions like NBA Game Time/Game Center and XOS College Sports.

Moving lines were rarer than in some other films, on the other hand; the first example I saw was the bright edge of Uncle Claude's bowler (22:41) as he spoke to Hugo.
LG LM670 55" | Rated 57% by by c|net (May, 2012)
The company's content selection is solid aside from two missing staples: Amazon Instant for video and Pandora for audio.

Remote

But until Magic Motion can actually control other devices, like the necessary cable box, it's just an extra remote to clutter your coffee table with.
LG LM670 55" | Rated 57% by by c|net (May, 2012)
People who actually use the antenna might miss having actual numeric keys on the remote, but I didn't.
LG LM670 55" | Rated 57% by by c|net (May, 2012)
I have a Harmony 650 at home, for example, and I don't want to go back to using more than one remote.
LG LM670 55" | Rated 57% by by c|net (May, 2012)

Picture quality

The LM6700 performed worse than last year's LW5600, with worse black levels, a more reflective screen, and inferior video processing.
LG LM670 55" | Rated 57% by by c|net (May, 2012)
I'd gladly accept a few of those to get better contrast and black levels, however.
LG LM670 55" | Rated 57% by by c|net (May, 2012)
In its favor, the LM6700 didn't show the blooming or brightness fluctuations that can be seen on some local-dimming TVs.

Apps

LG includes a Social Center with Twitter and Facebook feeds placed alongside the live TV image.

Smart TV: LG revamped its Smart TV interface again this year, and while we prefer the simplicity of Panasonic's menus, LG's outdo Samsung's and Sony's in terms of customization and making apps easy to access.
LG LM670 55" | Rated 57% by by c|net (May, 2012)
The major apps I'd characterize as worthwhile are grouped in the Premium section (don't worry, they're free).
