It seems the hot trend for TV now is 3D. This makes the $2000 LCD TV we bought back in 2009 obsolete. If you’re shopping for a new boob tube, it’s worth looking at what market leader LG has to offer in terms of next generation 3D TVs.
First you gotta have 3D glasses. LG claims their Cinema 3D glasses are light and do not need batteries or charging. They also use Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) technology that do not make one dizzy the longer you use. There’s a polarized film on the TV screen to deliver different images for the left and right eyes. The images jive with the Cinema 3D glasses to bring about pictures that are flicker-free.
Another good feature of the LG 3D TV we found is its easy 2D to 3D conversion feature. Just key in your favorite local show and you will enjoy watching in 3D depth.
Likewise, the Magic Motion Remote Control shows the TV’s ease of use. Instead of pushing buttons on the remote, users will simply access the menu with a single click, pointing the onscreen cursor like they would on a computer.
Locally, LG has teamed up with Sky Broadband to deliver premium content to users via iwantTV. Sky customers with at least 3mbps subscription will be able to enjoy their favorite TV shows even if they missed it just by logging on to iwantTV.
Files on the LG Optimus Tab, Optimus 2X and LG notebook can also be viewed freely on the Smart TV just by activating DLNA and Smart Share.
LG’s new generation Cinema 3D TVs will be on sale in leading appliance centers starting this month. Prices start at about P99,000 for the 42-inch category.
