There are more controls available on the lower end of the screen. There’s a bar of controls which offers users, quicker ways to access media. It would be great if these were prominently marked and accessible directly from the remote rather than having to go to it, via the interface.
Youtube interface - slick, minimalistic and well designed
The TV also has a unique feature called Dual Play, which lets you use the 3D glasses, which are seperately marked as A and B, to view two different views of a game using a single TV. It works by using a split-screen game on a PC or a console, then using the Dual-Play view to view the entire screen with one view.
The TV comes with all kinds of enhancements enabled but for the sake of the test, we disabled all the colour and smooth motion enhancements to get the most natural and unmodified view of the content. There’s the same level of customisation that you find on other high-end televisions, so tweaking the television to the final step is possibe.
Video quality in general is good, as long as you sit a good 5 - 6 ft away from the screen. Any closer than three feet and the larger pixels can be seen. In fact, if you really stand close to the TV. One of the biggest complaints we have is the backlighting. With the lights turned off, and a dark screen, it’s easy to see large patches of backlight bleeding in the corners of the screen. However, this isn’t obvious when you’re watching movies on it. Black levels otherwise are pretty good.
Coloured glasses - for dual-view modes only
3D is a nifty feature and it works alright with this TV. Even with the 3D content provided in the online channel, there’s hardly any depth perception with the glasses on. A full-HD movie with 2D-to-3D conversion turned on does a much better job at it. There’s less eye strain than you would find on most other active shutter glasses.
Audio quality is average and it’s nowhere close to as impressive as the visual quality and the massive size. The speakers aren’t round or very clear and they appear to be facing the rear. With a rather thick bezel, we would’ve preferred to have speakers facing us. Still, this is not an issue. If you’re going to be spending so much on a television of this size, it’d be wrong not to buy an equally impressive sound solution.
Some of the social networking and apps available to you
Media playback performance is good. Quality of the videos is decent and jumping from one video to another happens effortlessly. Skipping and fast forwarding videos is also well done. Fast forwarding can be done by moving the playback point to the place you want to get, then skipping to it.
Verdict and price in India
The really massive LG 72LM9500 3D LED-backlit LCD TV
The LG 72LM9500 is a one of a kind television, no doubt. It’s expensive - an MRP of Rs. 7,00,000 in India. It’s large and very impressive to look at and it’s a good buy if you have that kind of money. Sure, it doesn’t have the absolute stunning over-the-top quality that we’ve seen from some of the other flagship TV models from other brands, but the size really makes up for it. If you’ve always wanted a large display and didn’t want to go in for a projector, this might be the correct alternative for you.
