Santa came early this year with a very distinguished present to me, and I was lucky that @LGJordan wanted to know what I think of their LG 42LW5700 3-D TV.
The box was even lighter than the other LCD I get, or any others I got before; the real surprises started to unravel themselves when I unpacked the LG TV, it has very slim screen with a matte finish so you won’t be bothered anymore by the reflections typically found on glossy screens. If you take a look at the back, you will find a bunch of ports; including four HDMI ports, RGB port, wired Ethernet, component, Digital Audio output and two USB ports just to name some of them. I just wish there were more USB posts.
It is a flicker-free 3D TV and you can switch between 3D to 2D and vice versa, you can also switch a 2D movie into 3D
It also has TruMotion 120Hz technology so you can enjoy watching sports, video games and high-speed action movies virtually with no motion blur.
It also comes with four 3D passive glasses; they are no need for batteries; thus no need to bother charging them, making them lighter and very comfortable to wear, not to mention less expensive. Unlike conventional 3D TVs, LG Cinema 3D TVs are flicker-free, eliminating any feeling of dizziness. Not only that, one of the main advantages of 3D in LG is you can watch from any angle unlike other 3D brands.
Now the juicy part, a Smart TV , as most of you know I’m a Social Media addict, I read a lot of online articles, and interested in the latest Social Media platforms. Watching TV while being able to check my Timeline on Facebook and Twitter is like having my cake and eat it too.
I‘m so loving this and I don’t know if I can watch another TV if it’s not connected online from now on!
I can also browse the net on check Youtube videos in a superb crisp picture.
There are other things you can watch online such: Al Jazeera news, MLB, Funspot, Elife, Vtuner, Picasa, AccuWeather and AP. There are also downloadable LG apps.
There was a Nero Home Center CD that came with the LG TV, after downloading and setting it up on my laptop I was able to share all my media from my laptop on my LG TV wirelessly
So I was able to watch all the downloaded TV shows that I had stored on my laptop and watch my photos as well
Last but not least ladies and gentlemen may I present to you The Motion remote control which allows you to point at the screen and move a pointer around for more direct input, it actually gives you more direct control than the standard remote, but the only drawback is that it will use up a USB port.
It is one-of-a kind experience, believe it or not, there is nothing better than enjoying your holidays season watching your favorite movies and stay posted with the latest in your online community; it can always get better having to enjoy this while having your family around; connecting with your kids and your online friends ……
