LG 47LA6200 Review

This TV is considerably cheaper than our pick from LG, the 47LA7400, and performs quite well in both 2D and 3D, according to LG 47LA6200 reviews. However, a reviewer at CNET who tested the 55-inch model says there are better deals available. He gives this TV only 2.5 out of 5 stars. The LA6200 series can use the same fancy wand remote that the LG LA4700 series uses, but it's not included -- you have to buy it separately -- and the CNET expert mentions that the menu is hard to navigate with the included remote. The black levels are pretty light even for an LED TV, according to his review. The TV exhibits some blurring during scenes with fast motion and the 3D suffers from a good deal of crosstalk, as well as artifacts such as jagged edges. The color is accurate and uniform, however.

An LG 47LA6200 review from LCD TV Buying Guide, on the other hand, commends the 3D performance for rich color, good contrast, and excellent depth. An expert from Reviewed.com considers the color on this TV detailed and accurate, although its black levels are lacking. The 50-inch model the site tested has nice, wide viewing angles and the reviewer likes the many streaming options and apps available. This reviewer didn't address the TV's 3D prowess, unfortunately.

The LG LA6200 series of 3D TVs is available in 42-, 47-, 50-, 55-, and 60-inch sizes, the widest variety among any we researched. The 47-inch LG 47LA6200 (starting at $783, Amazon) is a smart TV with a 1080p high-definition screen and passive 3D technology. It uses LG's TruMotion 120 Hz technology to reduce motion blur. This LED TV includes three HDMI ports, three USB ports, built-in Wi-Fi, an Ethernet port, and a component input. It also comes with four pairs of 3D glasses.

In general, the LG 47LA6200 seems like a pretty solid TV for 2D content with excellent color at a cheap price. Its black levels are lacking, but it makes up for that to some extent with incredibly accurate, rich color and extra-wide viewing angles. Its 3D prowess is questionable, though, so if you're keen on 3D content you may want to choose another TV.
