Among all of the 3D glasses I've tried I liked the LG's best overall.

I performed a hands-on evaluation of the 47-inch LG 47LM7600, but this review also applies to the other screen size in the series.

The others we reviewed were 55-inch models, whereas the LM7600 I tested was a 47-inch, and the artifacts associated with passive 3D are more obvious at larger screen sizes.

Watching the very dark scenes from the "creation" sequence of "Tree of Life" (chapter 4), it outdid the depth of black produced by the Sony KDL-EX640 and the Samsung ES6500 in every scene, and fell short of the inky depth created by the Panasonic TC-P55ST50.

The vanishingly thin bezel around the screen makes the TV seem nearly all picture, and the few areas that are visible exude elegance, from the black frame touched with silver edging to the sweeping U-shaped stand.

From off-angle the LM7600 wasn't too bad, which was a surprise for me considering past LGs' poor performance in this area (maybe the more effective dimming helps).

Colors on the other sets, in particular the Vizio, the Samsung ES8000, and the Panasonic plasma had a richer, more pleasing look in my side-by-side comparison.

Panel

The UNES8000 and the Vizio were markedly brighter, however, which made their 3D images overall punchier and higher-contrast - 3D on the LM7600 was dimmer than on the other LEDs.

Color fidelity from off-angle was also good, right up there with the Vizio and better than the rest.

When watching "Hugo," my favorite 3D reference material, I saw the same jagged edges and moving lines as on the 55-inch Vizio placed next to this LG, although I'd say they were slightly less obvious on the smaller LG in comparison (my seating distance was about 7 feet from both).

Picture quality

It's not every day that we encounter a television that has better picture quality than the more expensive version, but the LM7600 produced better image quality than the flagship LM9600 we reviewed earlier this year.

That's no small feat since active sets have a large advantage in apparent black level because you're basically wearing sunglasses.

Details in shadows, such as the face of Mrs. O'Brien kissing young Jack in bed (48:23), were rendered well enough, and while they did appear a bit more obscured than on the Samsungs, they weren't too dark as I saw on the Sharp.

3d

Color on the LM7600 was poor in 3D however, with reddish skin tones and an off cast to many areas in comparison with the other sets, especially the Vizio and UNES8000.

Content

LG doesn't include a normal remote with the LM7600; the little wand replaces a standard multibutton remote's cursor with Nintendo Wii-like motion control.

Remote

Previously I've complained that the motion remote suffered in comparison with a real universal clicker like those from Harmony, but the LM7600 makes it possible to control your other devices using an IR blaster built into the TV and controlled by the little wand.
