The list is longer than I'll type here.

One's a HDTV, the other has all those apps and other features.

Frankly if a retailer will not go over the differences, they don't deserve the sale.

The mainstay differences
by Re_Sword / June 16, 2012 12:16 AM PDT

So, what are "those features" exactly? (just the cornerstone ones)
I need an expert opinion, something i can not get from the TV catalog

Let me become more specific:
1- Is there is any difference regarding the visual experience/ image quality?
2- What can i get from the internet feature rather than just browsing and playing videos from here and there, are there - for example- certain 3D channels that i can access through the internet for free?
3- What are the software programs that come with the smart TV?
4- is there is any difference Regarding 2D to 3D conversion ability?

A question by the way, does any/both TVs can emerge and read subtitle file with movie? (like PC)
Thanks again

1. Find
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / June 16, 2012 6:26 AM PDT

I'd see the set in person to make a call on display quality. In fact my not expert opinion is to not pay a dime for "Smart TV" since the HDTV makers have a long ways to go today. For example, no Hulu.com, and bugs aplenty that you can't get them to fix. Example? Read

2. There is some new 3D content on some of the players (YouTube) but the brutal fact is this is in its infancy so you have to have a thick skin and accept the failures.

3. Again, the list is too long for me to list. It is at the LG site so why not look?

4. NO! NOT ONE HAS DONE THIS LIKE A PC! There is no PC inside and no player I've seen has the capability to work as well as your common PC.

From your post it appears you want a PC connected or inside the HDTV. Let's be clear that there is nothing like a PC in these Smart TVs so far. All are shadows when compared to a PC.

smart feature

You can view the comparision here.

As far as I can see from the chart, the major differences are:

one, 6690 has smart feature together with a 3 mode magic remote.

two, 6690 has Dual Play mode together with 2 pairs of dual play glasses though they both have 3D function.

Picture qualities are similar so I guess it all depends on how much you rely on a smart TV.

In reply to: smart feature

Thanks R. Proffitt & perterhannity very much Happy
I have found an installment offer from B.TECH called "the minicash system"
So i find my self in front of 3 options:
1- Buy 32LM6690 CINEMA 3D SMART TV ( which i can pay for it cash)
2- Try to "squeeze" more on my wallet and go for 42LM5800 Full HD LED 3D TV (only about 160$ over 32LM6690 CINEMA 3D SMART TV )
3- Accept the offer and take 47LM6690 3D SMART TV (but i will have to pay for B.TECH monthly for 2 yrs ugggh Angry )
Any advisement ?
& thanks guys again for your concern

In reply to: Thanks

personal opinion: No.3
TV is not a pair of shoes which you might throw it away a year later. It's better to invest the money wisely in a good TV like 47LM6690

The main difference that anybody could tell is probably the design. Another thing is the remote. LM5800 doesn't have the magic remote which is what makes the LG TVs stand out amongst other smart TVs. If you have the extra $150 then definitely go for the LM6690.
