Page 1 of 16 LG LA7400 – Why It Is The Best LED 3D HDTV To Seriously Consider If you are looking to buy a big screen 3D HDTV, you must check out the LG LA7400 By FunnerMontag Find out where to get the lowest price and read everything you need to know about the LG LA7400 3D LED Smart HDTV here. The LG LA7400 is the best LED 3D Smart HDTV to seriously consider if you are looking for a gorgeous internet ready 3D HDTV with crisp vibrant picture and amazing depth that also delivers full bodied audio. I will take you through the technology that is used in the LG LA7400 models in the simplest possible layman terms. By the way, there are three sizes for you to choose from; namely the 47 inch, 55 inch and 60 inch models with the model designations of LG 47LA7400, LG 55LA7400 and LG 60LA7400 respectively. However I will just refer to them collectively as the LG LA7400. Then I will take you through the "supporting" components necessary for you to use the internet ready LG LA7400. I will also highlight the negative and positive aspects of the TV so that you know that you are making an informed rather than an impulse decision when you buy the LG LA7400 TV. Finally I will also show you where to buy the LG LA7400 so that you can get it at the cheapest price.
  2. 2. Page 2 of 16 What is the difference between LED and LCD HDTVs? Can you tell me what is the difference between the two? When you go to the shop you will probably hear the salesperson telling you about this LED TV and that LCD TV and it becomes really very confusing after a while. So, let us find out the difference between the LED and LCD technologies and you can better understand what you will be getting in the LG LA7400. What is LED technology? And how does LED technology work? The LG LA4700 HDTV uses both LED and LCD technologies. LED stands for Light Emitting Diode and LED is the next generation LCD technology. LED provides a better brightness because it uses a back lighting technology. This technology allows the TV to perform extremely well in both light and dark rooms and at the same time delivers some of the best color levels and contrast ratios. On top of that, LED TVs generally uses less power than their LCD or plasma counterparts. Due to the technology, LED TVs are also thinner, have better picture quality, longer lifespan and faster response time.
  3. 3. Page 3 of 16 What is LCD technology? And how does LCD technology work? LCD or Liquid Crystal Display on the other hand, is in a way a slightly older technology as compared to LED. It generally consumes less energy than plasma TVs but slightly more than their LED counterparts. However it is cheaper. Generally matte screen models (most LCD screens are matte) perform reasonably well in bright rooms and have minimum glare problems. You don't see the glare because they are heavily suppressed and hence you don't notice it. As they do not have back lighting, the pure LCD pictures don't look as good in dark rooms. On top of that, they also do not have a true black picture quality and have a narrower viewing angle. Generally pure LCD is much cheaper than LED TVs. So what technology does the LG LA7400 use? Is it LED or LCD? The LG LA7400 uses a combination of both technologies to give you the best of both worlds - in terms of cost, picture and viewing quality. Generally when most people see a TV labeled as an LED TV, they will naturally be led to think that it is a "pure LED" TV. Unfortunately this is not so as the majority of TV manufacturers actually advertise their LCD TV with an LED backlighting as an LED TV. In the case of the LG LA7400 as advertised in Amazon, Amazon more accurately referred to it as "LG Electronics 55LA7400 55-Inch Cinema Screen Cinema 3D 1080p 240Hz LED-LCD HDTV with Smart TV and Four Pairs of 3D Glasses" - this is the name you will see at the Amazon site.
  4. 4. Page 4 of 16 See the LED-LCD in the name of the product? Why the LED-LCD in the name is because the LG LA7400 HDTV is actually an LCD HDTV that uses LED for back lighting; as are most of the similarly called LED TVs in the market. Those LED TVs are also LCD TV but with different methods of LED back lighting. I supposed the manufacturers have to balance the cost by combining the best features of the current technologies in order to sell their products. On the LG LA7400 HDTV, LG uses the edge LED back lighting to add brightness, clarity, color details and deeper blacks. Coupled with its LED Plus technology, LG provides greater control of the brightness and better contrast with its edge LED lighting control system. Now you have an idea on the screen technology, let’s find out more about the 3D technology. What is 3D technology in your HDTV? How does 3D works in a HDTV? A 3D television or more commonly referred to as 3DTV is a TV that let you perceive depth by using techniques such as multi- view display, stereoscopic display, 2D plus depth or other techniques to give a perception of depth. The 3D feature of your HDTV allows you to enjoy your favourite 3D content from the comfort of your home. To view the 3D content, you will need a 3D content component in the form of Blu-ray videos on a 3D player (e.g. a 3D Blu-ray player, PlayStation 3, or cable box) or content accessed through the television networks - generally on a subscription basis. The majority of newer 3DTVs use a polarized 3D system or active shutter 3D system. You will need a pair of 3D glasses to enjoy the depth of the 3D content. Some HDTVs such as the LG LA7400 also has a 2D to 3D conversion feature that allows you to convert traditional 2D content to 3D. As to be expected, the converted 2D contents will not generally be as good as contents that are created
  5. 5. Page 5 of 16 specifically in 3D. Due to the technology used, the LG LA7400 2D has quite an amount of depth even in 2D that will make you think that you are watching a 3D movie without even using those 3D glasses. What do you need to get the internet ready LG LA7400 connected? What are the additional components required So what is an internet ready TV? Well, it is a TV that allows you to connect directly to the internet either wirelessly or through a direct cable connection so that you are able to access contents from the internet (for example the 2D or 3D movies) or use features like Skype to make video or voice calls and surf the internet without using your tablet, computer or smart phone. With internet ready TVs, there is also a tendency for manufacturers to bundle services from different third party content providers. Some of these are free and some are pay per view or subscription based. In order to use the internet ready LG LA7400 to access content from the internet, you will need the following:  A broadband internet connection. Very high chances you are already subscribed to some sort of service. However if you plan to stream movies, you might want to review the bandwidth and speed that you have subscribed and upgrade those if your subscription to those services are at the lower end  Sometimes the internet service provider will "force" you to rent a cable modem from them. Where possible, I highly recommend that you buy your own cable modem because it will save you money in the long run. A highly recommended cable modem to look for is the Motorola SB6121 or the newer Motorols SB6141.
  6. 6. Page 6 of 16 If you do not have a cable modem or is looking for an upgrade, I would recommend that you just go with the Motorola SB6141 as the difference in price between the two is not much. However, if you are interested to see how they stack up, then check out the comparison article below. Motorola SB6141 or SB6121 Which Of These Cable Modem Should I Buy  A router - you will need a router to route the content from the cable modem to the LG LA7400. If you are looking for a good wireless router, you may want to buy the Asus RT-N66U The Asus RT-N66U Router Is Giving Me Excellent Performance  A cable to connect from the router to the TV. Most people will however use a wireless connection to the wireless router for that purpose because the LG LA7400 has a WiFi capability build in. With the WiFi capability build in, you do not need a dongle to connect to your router for internet access. Now that you have a good idea on the underlying technology used in the LG LA7400 and what is required for it to access content from the internet, let us look at the TV itself.

  7. 7. Page 7 of 16 What are the negative points of the LG LA7400? What is not so good about the LG LA7400 HDTV? All products will have their pros and cons. Most times these pros and cons are quite subjective and it really depends on individual tastes as the saying goes "one man's meat is another's poison". I thought it would be a good idea to get rid of the negative points first so that we can focus on what is good about the LG LA7400.  No Amazon VOD - at the point of writing, Amazon VOD is not available. However the understanding is that it will be made available in a matter of time. If you are not a subscriber of Amazon VOD, then this no issue at all. However, if you really need Amazon VOD, then just add a Roku to it. It should set you back less then $100 only.  Spotify is also not available yet. A Roku should also be able to help you solve this lack.  You will need a HDMI conversion kit if you need to connect more than one DVD player. However I think most of us will not have this problem as the LG LA7400 is a networked TV with internet access. So most times we will be getting our content from the television networks or video providers and would very rarely need to connect to more than 1 DVD player As with all electronic products, you may sometimes also be the unlucky one to get a unit that is not working well even though all those units will have to go through a quality control process. As such it is important for you to buy from a reliable retailer that provides good after sales service that allows you to make replacements etc if you happen to get one that is no good. You could also take up extended maintenance, insurance etc to cover the unforseen... So I will not consider this type of hopefully isolated case as negative unless there are reports of defects in massive number of units that I get to hear of later on.
  8. 8. Page 8 of 16 What are the great stuff on the LG LA7400? What makes the LG LA7400 a great 3D Smart TV? Depending on your requirements, sometimes if a product has even only one or two features that you really need, then it would be a great product for you. However with the LG LA7400, it has many features that makes it an outstanding product for anyone. Here are some of the features which I felt that added together will make the LG LA7400 an excellent HDTV that you must seriously consider if you are going for a big screen SMART HDTV. Here are the 10 points winning points: 1. Elegant design screen that will fit in nicely anywhere LG's Cinema Screen has an elegant, stunning design that looks beautiful, on or off with its ultra narrow bezel. It will fit in very nicely anywhere. The thin black bezel sometimes makes the TV look as if it is just floating in air with no frame at all! Just look at the picture on the right and you will know what I mean. 2. Excellent Picture quality The LG LA7400 comes with LG's LED Plus and full HD 1080p. As such it produces a very good very vibrant crisp quality picture with very high levels of detail. 3. Rich and full audio
  9. 9. Page 9 of 16 If you have an existing home theatre set, then you can still continue enjoying the sounds like you used to. If you don't have, the you will find that the LG LA7400 comes with a Rich, full audio in a 2.1 sound mode. With that you can experience a brilliant opus with a powerful sub woofer adding depth and liveliness to all of your favorite shows without spending additional money to get yourself a home theatre system but still get an excellent sound to enjoy your movies. 4. 3D capability This is a 3D HDTV. Apart from blu ray 3D movies, there are more and more 3D movies that are available online at a reasonable cost. A $5.99 subscription from SmartTv will allow you to stream excellent 3D movies such as Monsters, Brave, Wreck-It Ralph, Step Up, Up, Alice in Wonderland, Finding Nemo, Frankinweenie, Bolt, Hana Montana, G-Force, Mars Needs Moms, Tron, Tangled, and many more to keep you and your family entertained. 3D Glasses You can only see the 3D effect with 3D glasses. The lightweight 3D glasses that come with the Lg LA7400 gives you cool 3D effects and great pictures. These battery free and flicker free glasses are also more comfortable and cheaper. Even though 4 are provided with the set, you can easily get more without hurting your pocket if you have many friends or family members coming over for a movie party.
  10. 10. Page 10 of 16 5. Skype capability If you are an avid user of Skype and you like to Skype with the video on, then you would probably want to look at the LG LA8600 model. The LG LA8600 model range of this HDTV comes with a build-in camera, otherwise you can still chat on-line with the LG LA7400 but without the video. More on LG LA8600 with build-in camera 6. Connection to the internet The LG LA7400 is referred to as a smart TV. It allows you complete access to the internet and you can have access to wealth of online features including streaming media, web browsing, games, and applications like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube - just as if you are accessing the internet on your tablet, computer or smart phone. The LG LA7400's dual core processor technology also enhances access speed to Internet content and application processing
  11. 11. Page 11 of 16 7. Upgradable Firmware The TV comes with a firmware that is upgradable. You can set the TV to update automatically if you want to. Having the ability to upgrade the firmware is a big advantage because Companies are adding new content to their services at breakneck speed. This will allow you to have the latest firmware that may have bug fixes, additions or fixes for you to access and make use of newer technologies or new services that they offer so that you will not be left behind. 8. SMART and easily configurable TV The LG LA7400 is considered a smart TV with the functionalities of a traditional TV integrated with web capabilities. It allows you to use the TV as a computer or tablet and you can use apps, browse the net, connect with wireless devices, and stream content from the providers on the internet. LG has designed the SMART features to be user friendly with intuitive interfaces like that of a Mac. In fact, many consider the LG SMART platform to be one of the best in the market today. With the LG LA7400, hooking up the HDTV to devices like the smart phone, notebook computer, computer or tablet is as easy connecting it. The DLNA connections to PCs and smart phones work flawlessly. 9. Easy to access contents For me, the ease of accessing contents is very important as I do not want to buy a TV that only a technically inclined person is able to figure out how to access those contents. With the LG LA7400 you are able to easily
  12. 12. Page 12 of 16 access a very wide range of contents such as YouTube, Hulu Plus, Netflix, Pandora, Picasa, Facebook and many others However if those are still not sufficient for you, then perhaps you may want to attach a Roku to it. More on Roku 10. Energy saving This is a nice feature to have especially for those people who like to keep their TV on most of the time. It will save you money in the long run as once dimmed, the TV will consume only a little energy What about the remote? I have not forgotten about the LG LA7400's remote but am saving the best for last The magic remote does not look like your traditional remote but a magic mouse and you will be very comfortable with it if you have been using the Wii. This remote is very intuitive and it makes the navigation of complex menus and screens a breeze. It turns on if you shake left to right or touch the 1 of 3 designated buttons closest to your thumb. You control it by moving it around in your hand and it does not need you to point directly at the TV like the traditional IR infra-red technology remotes. Press the voice button and a cartoon girl in a tight red jumpsuit will appear. Ask for a video or a website and the girl will get it for you most of the time! You can also use the voice command to launch a comprehensive search for contents.
  13. 13. Page 13 of 16 Your voice search for a movie or TV show will direct you to where you can get that particular selection, and how much it costs to rent or buy. The Magic Remote allows you to control your Blu-ray, HTiB, Set-Top-Box and sound bar so that you only need that remote for each of your different media devices. For example, if you have cable and while you are watching a live TV, you can just hold down the scroll wheel to draw a number on the screen to change the channel. How cool... You can also pair your NFC enable device to the LG LA7400 and use your device as a remote. See a demo of this in the video below. Find out more on this amazing remote by Linus Sebastian of NCIX

It was extremely easy to set-up the remote and wireless internet (just enter the router password and voila! connection). The picture quality is unsurpassed and the voice command is really cool. You can watch one channel, but tell the TV "change to AMC when The Walking Dead is on" that way you don't miss the first 10 minutes of because you didn't notice the time or got distracted by re-runs of SVU..."
