In the Smart TV, there is a Home Dashboard that allows easy navigation through multiple options. The performance compliments the good looks and features.

The left bottom has a power indicator and there are a few sensors that include a small camera, embedded within the frame. It comes with a camera for use with Skype. One demerit is the display when turned off, because the glossy screen reflects and can be irritating, although its gorilla glass coating provides extra protection, thus ensuring that you won’t ever see it scratched.

The back panel also has plenty of connectivity options, such as four HDMI inputs, two rows of connectors, along with D-Sub to connect older PCs. Also, there is no component or composite connection on the TV itself. Presence of large vents on the back allows ventilation, and so kept it from heating up at all.

It costs 60k more than LG Cinema 3D TV, but the 3D effect, especially with increased depth is the best in the current lot.
