For the ultimate home theatre experience, either a projecor or a really large television is the key. Projectors come with the additional requirement of a large screen to project on. They are also a bit fragile, so consumers usually prefer large plasma or LCD TVs. LG has one such model under the LM9500 lineup called the 72LM9500 which scales a crazy 72-inches. Displays this large aren't officially sold in India so here this big boy has no competition.
LG's most ambitious LED TV in stores, yet
Design and build quality
The first thing you notice is obviously its mammoth size. The box is massive and the TV itself requires four to five people to get it out of the box. Even though the 720LM9500 is an LED-backlit TV, it’s nowhere close to light. It weighs a massive 65.5 kg in weight, so it’s not very easy to shift and move around. Wall mounting may not be an option either.
The back of the TV made of solid metal, adding to its 65kg weight
The TV isn't very slim at 6cm in depth, which is way more than most LED backlit TVs. It would be difficult to imagine a sleek and slim 72-inch display. But its sheer size is the major attraction. We had a steady stream on people peeking into our labs to check out this massive display.
The stand is heavy and sturdy to support the weight of this display. A thick column connects the display to a wide, sturdy base. The stand allows you to rotate the TV, but it won’t do a complete 360.
A somewhat thicker bezel than on most premium TV models
The bezel on the display is thicker than most other TVs and it’s nowhere comparable to the ones you find on comparatively smaller displays from LG and its competitors such as Samsung and Sony. Still, one has to remember that this is a massive display and the weight and build is there to hold up the massive screen without compromising on the structural integrity of the product. Unlike other TVs, this one is mostly made of metal. The entire rear of the TV is made of metal and it’s very sturdy.
There’s nothing too different about the remote control that comes with the TV. It’s exactly the same design found on the current line of LG TVs. Not too heavy, it has a predominantly glossy-finish plastic with large buttons for the primary navigation. Multimedia controls for the Smart TV feature can be found at the bottom.
There’s also a dedicated 3D button that lets you switch from 2D to 3D mode. In case of non-3D content, you get the option to quickly enable 2D-to-3D content conversion.
The standard remote control - no different than the other models
There’s also a separate motion remote called the Magic Motion Remote, which is designed more to be held in the hand. Apart from the basic buttons that you find on regular remote controls, there’s also a scroller in the center. It too is made up of roughly the same quality as the primary remote but this one is better ergonomically designed.
LG has been pretty successful with 3D, primarily because of the passive 3D glass technology. Typically, active shutter glasses have some flicker and this results in eye fatigue, especially if you’re watching it for more than half an hour at a time.
The passive 3D glasses - lightweight and lacking need for batteries
LG has worked on the exisiting 3D glasses to make them sleeker. They’re made of plastic and look like any other pair of glasses, without batteries on them.
