LG 47LX6500 3D LED LCD HDTV Review

LG’s first attempt at 3D, with poor results (though strong 2D performance).

$2,699.00 MSRP 47 in.


The LG 47LX6500 ($2699 MSRP) has a lot of intriguing features, most notably the 3D display. It's LG's first attempt at a 3D TV (along with the LX9500 series), and we're sorry to say that it's a poor result. Sure, it's a very good 2D performer, but who wants to pay the 'early adopter tax' if the 3D effect is a headache-inducing mess?
