Last week, we were graciously invited by the good people from LG to their 2013 Cinema 3D Smart TV Showcase that was held at The P’Club Group and we had the opportunity to take a look and try out some of the LG 2013 Cinema 3D Smart TV that were on display.
The good people from LG were really hospitable and seriously, they really took great care of us. Just look at all the yummy treats from them!
A closer-look at the yummy surprise treats that LG prepared for us.
Life’s Good with LG
The model numbers of the 5 LG 2013 Cinema 3D Smart TV that were on display at the showcase are LA8600, LA7400, LA6620, LA6200, and LN5710 and they are currently available at all major electronic stores as of the time of writing this blog entry. To simplify things, we will be mainly sharing about the LA8600, LA7400, and LA6620 in this blog entry because the other two models, LA6200 and LN5710, are much more simpler in features and we feel that it is better for you to pay a few hundreds more for either the LA7400 or LA6620 and get your money worth.
In recent years, a lot of people have been going for television with sizes that are way beyond what we could have imagined in the past and it is no surprise that people are willing to fork out more moo-lah to get that one special TV that will fit stylishly in their living room at home. Undeniably, the LG 2013 Cinema 3D Smart TV does Look Good in practically any setting and it comes in an array of sizes that will definitely meet your requirements.
Now, let us bring you through to the Smart TV features that are available on the LA8600, LA7400, and LA6620.
Smart TV feature No. 1- Smart Control
The unique LG Magic Remote that comes with the LG 2013 Cinema 3D Smart TV can perform a variety of functions and one of it is the latest Magic Remote Gesture Control that allows you to change TV channel by drawing the channel number on the screen.
You can also perform a Voice Search function that is available on the Magic Remote to directly look for content on the TV and also on the Internet. As the Search Bar showing the results will be displayed in the bottom half of the screen, it makes multitasking possible.
If the Magic Remote is out of reach or is out of battery, the Motion Control is another smart control function which enables you to control the TV using your bare hands and adjust basic settings such as volume, channel, input source and power off. However, this feature is only available for the LA8600 and should you wish to use this feature on the LA7400 and LA6620, you will have to purchase the VC500 Camera and mount it on the TV.
To top it off, LG has even developed a TV Remote App that allows you to control the TV, Blu-ray Player, and Sound System from your smartphone. In case you’re wondering, the LG TV Remote App can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
Smart TV feature No. 2- Smart Share
The Time Machine II is a function that allows you to record TV programmes, save them onto the TV’s built-in memory, and playback the recorded content. In fact, you can also schedule to record a TV programme even when the TV is not switched on. For the LA8600, the Time Machine II has an added feature that allows you to watch two TV channels simultaneously using the in-built twin turner set while you record a TV programme. If the TV’s built-in memory is insufficient for your usage, you can attach an external hard-disk drive to the TV and boost the memory capacity. Conservatively, a 2G storage capacity can have a recording time of about 75 minutes.
The LG Cloud is another function which we found quite interesting and it provides 5GB of free storage space that allows you to share photos, music and videos from any LG 2013 Cinema 3D Smart TV, Android smartphone and personal computers. To access the content on the LG 2013 Cinema 3D Smart TV, you can download the LG Cloud app which allows you to also manage files anytime and anywhere.
What is also new on the LG 2013 Cinema 3D Smart TV is the LG TV Tag On feature that uses Near Field Communication [NFC] technology to make sharing between your Android smartphone and the LG Smart TV possible. All you have to do is simply stick the NFC sticker at a convenient location, download the LG TV Tag On app from the Google Play Store onto your smartphone, hold your NFC-enabled smartphone against the NFC sticker, and then viola, whatever content that the TV is showing will appear on your smartphone for viewing. This is on top of the existing connectivity options such as WiDi and Miracast.
Smart TV feature No. 3- Smart Entertainment
The variety and scope of LG’s smart entertainment ensures that you will never be bored.
Catering to the increasing gaming fans, acclaimed games titles long popular on smartphones and tablets such as Where’s My Water, Air Penguin and many more are available for download on the LG 2013 Cinema 3D Smart TV.
And that’s not all!
Korean pop fans will definitely like the K-Pop Zone where you can watch K-Pop celebrity interviews and music videos, many of which are exclusive to LG’s K-Pop Zone.
Besides the enlarged content pool, the latest 3D entertainment from LG also enables Dual Play, a feature whereby two gamers can play at the same time and enjoy a full-screen independent view through their Dual Play glasses while playing the traditional split screen games. This makes gaming even more fun and exciting because instead of seeing a split screen, each player will see a full screen of his/her own race field without being interfered by the other player’s view, resulting in a more immersive experience and preventing players from “cheating” by peeking at each other’s view.
Thanks to its dual core processor, the LG 2013 Cinema 3D Smart TVs deliver a smooth user experience and superior picture quality.
The LG 2013 Cinema 3D Smart TVs are also built with the enhanced Triple XD Engine that gives the display a more natural color expression, deeper contrast, and better clarity. To complement the most vivid and realistic picture quality and to complete the absolute 3D experience, the LA8600, LA7400, and LA6620, come with more immersive sound through the 3D sound zooming. With the 2.1 Speaker System which comes with an in-built subwoofer, the LA8600, LA7400, and LA6620 produces sound of incredible depth and liveliness, bringing the cinema home with booming exhilaration.
The new LG 2013 Cinema 3D Smart TVs embody LG’s minimalist Cinema Screen Design. Sporting a “vanished” bezel, the LG 2013 Cinema 3D Smart TVs subtly blends in with the surrounding furnishings.
The LA8600 and LA7400 comes with a Magic Stand that enables the screen to appear as if it is floating. Combined with their Uni-body finish, the LG 2013 Cinema 3D Smart TVs present a seamless premium design, becoming a masterpiece on the wall of any modern home and will effortlessly harmonize with any modern interior design, allowing you to achieve completion of your interior design personality.
