The LG LM6700 is a striking HDTV, sporting the nearly bezel-free design pioneered by Samsung and now adopted by most TV manufacturers. As a 2D set, it offers good, but not outstanding, picture quality, with black levels that aren't as deep as they could be. 3D is passive, which means glasses are cheaper (the LM6700 ships with 6 pairs), but also means you'll need to view the set head-on to get the best 3D out of it. LG's quirky, motion-based, remote may also take some getting used to. Ultimately, this is a decent HDTV, but there are better options available.

LG's good-looking 55-inch 55LM6700 3D LED HDTV is loaded with features, but you'll have to get used to its quirky remote.

The LG 55LM6700 offers a big screen, great streaming options, and a revolutionary remote control. However, picture quality is disappointing, and the remote has major shortcomings.

While this set may be the lowest model of LG’s top-tier Cinema Screen TV series, we think it offers an absolutely stellar combination of beautiful form-factor, features and performance.

- Picture Quality The PQ is meager...right out of the box that is. It will take some adjusting to get it to look fantastic, but fantastic it will look. The settings I found here - http://reviews.lcdtvbuyingguide.com/lg-lcd-tv/lg-l... - work great and provide good...
