With one of the smartest controllers about and great all-round performance, the LG 47LA690V is hard to beat.

CINEMA TV WITH 2D TO 3D CONVERSION


Cinema 3D TV is the popular passive 3D system from LG. It's simpler than the active system but, despite this, in many ways it's superior. For a start, passive 3D TV is considered more comfortable to watch with less flicker. Other technical advantages include a wider viewing angle and brighter images. Then there's the cost and convenience consideration to take into account. The glasses are much cheaper and also considerably lighter to wear. The lack of batteries onboard also means they don't have to be recharged. What's more, with 2D to 3D conversion, you can get the 3D experience with any program you care to watch - whether filmed in 3D or not!

SUPERB PICTURE QUALITY WITH LED PLUS AND 400HZ MCI PROCESSING

Whether you watch in 2D or 3D, the LG 47LA690V offers an exceptional performance. The LED Plus backlight panel is able to dim unused parts of the screen for higher contrast. So precise is the result that this LG is able to offer deeper blacks than you'd believe from a LED TV. As well as the bright, detailed and natural picture quality, the LG 47LA690V offers very smooth motion. Thanks to 400Hz MCI (Motion Clarity Index) processing, 3D images are sharper and 2D has less blur with fast moving action scenes.

DUAL PLAY LETS YOU BOTH SEE THE WHOLE IMAGE

When used with the standard two pairs of special glasses, the Dual Play function lets you play a two-player game without having to split the screen! Special technology ensures each player sees only their part of the game on the entire screen.

ENHANCED SOUND WITH 2.1 SUBWOOFER SYSTEM

LG have worked hard to improve the sound quality of their latest flat screen TVs. Although still not a match for a soundbar or separate home cinema system, the sound quality is excellent by TV standards. With a 2.1 sound system, the 47LA690V uses a separate subwoofer to provide a fuller and richer sound. Added to this, Virtual Surround Plus creates a spacious sound to help make the audio sound less 'boxy'.

SMARTSHARE FOR THE SLICKEST MEDIA INTEGRATION

In terms of smart functionality, the LA690V range is one of the best. As you'd expect, there's a premium range of LG applications, including many popular video on demand apps, such as YouTube. There's also a web browser plus DLNA certification to allow you to stream across your network from other devices, such as your PC or laptop. Yet, the LA690V goes further than this; much further. 2nd display let's you push content from your TV to a second compatible device, such as smartphone or tablet, meaning you'll never miss out on the action! Miracast lets you watch what's on your mobile or tablet, on the big screen - wirelessly. (Miracast requires a WiFi network and Miracast certified smartphone. Smartphone firmware update may be required). Alternatively, for the highest quality video, MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) allows you to link up compatible smartphones or tablets and stream video via HDMI.

THE SMARTEST CONTROL WITH MAGIC REMOTE

With a new design of Magic Remote, the LA690V range is one of the most intuitive to control. Within the one remote control you can point, gesture, wheel and voice control. The scroll wheel is ideal for surfing the web while gesture control lets you change channel simply by 'drawing' the channel number with the remote. Should you prefer, voice activation is also available, giving handsfree control.

SLEEK GOOD LOOKS

With its narrow metallic bezel, the 690V range looks cool when switched off but is unobtrusive when on. At less than 35mm deep, it's also super-slim and looks great on a surface or wall-mounted. New for this model range is a stylish 'boomerang' stand that gives the perfect blend of style and practicality.

With smart good looks and even smarter tech, the LG 47LA690V is a powerful performer.

Rated 5 out of 5áby 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great Tv all round Have the 42" version in my kitchen and was impressed with the tv So when upgrading the living room tv was not a hard decision to make. 27 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great TV Decided to upgrade and this ticked all the boxes. Wasn't too bothered about 3D, but decided to take the plunge and purchase a LG 3D Blu Ray player as well, wow... the details when watching normal Blu Ray films are just amazing and 3D films are fantastic, 3D works really well. Blu Ray is a must..Don't kid yourself with DVD, Go for the Blu Ray option. It brings this TV to life. Details when watching HD TV are excellent, and the magic remote is really useful. Other useful features include the ability to use an I Pad to control the smart features and Internet. Would recommend to connect the TV directly to a router via an Ethernet cable as WiFi can be slow when watching HD content. Only other criticism is the 2D to 3D conversion, not 100% successful. Overall an excellent performer. 24 February 2014
