Introduction

We have spent the past few years maligning 3D technology. We used our vastly creative negativity to rebuke what we felt was the most expensive and simultaneously worthless "innovation" in television history. Scathing reviews were written about 3D imaging for the following reasons: reduction of resolution, reduction of refresh rate, reduction of contrast, heavy crosstalk, very little content, possible permanent eye injury, headaches, nausea, exhaustion, distraction, boredom, and a general lack of interest.

We were ready to deflate the LG 47LM6700 ($1799 MSRP), a 2012, 1080p, LED, 3D, Smart TV, with our routinely forked tongue, but instead we sat down to a delicious meal of crow. With a new technology that debuted late last year, LG shows us that 3D can look really good, and without most of the problems mentioned above. In addition to opinion-changing 3D images, the 47LM6700 has a newly improved Smart TV menu system, and a remote that makes navigating the ever-expanding sea of content less of an odyssey.

But these extra features are just layers of icing on a cake. Scrape all of this away and you still have a television that needs be tested. We ran our usual battery and the results were certainly appealing. There are a ton of features on this LG, and we cover them all in this review.
