LG 55LM9600 3D LED LCD HDTV Review
A great TV overall, but smart buyers might want to wait on a price drop.
Our first experience of LG's foray into 2012 was the 47LM6700, and it was a revelation for internet content, 3D application, and space-age appearances.
As we expected, the 55LM9600 is no slacker either. The 3D is still just as good as it was, with comfortable glasses and even more comfortable content, and crosstalk problems appear to be a thing of the past. Likewise, the Magic Remote is still in full force, making it extremely easy and intuitive to navigate LG's content-heavy Home menu, use the built in internet browser, and change settings and inputs on the fly.
Like the LM6700, the LM9600 is also a strong core performer, though not quite as effective as its sister model. Its got a good selection of ports, a sensible design, and the same great menus and software features that we found so pleasing about the LM6700 series. The whole TV makes for a winning package, and if you can get past its somewhat irregular appearance, the LM9600 may be one of the smartest buys of early 2012.
