CES 2014: LG LB7200 is an LED TV with a nifty design

1:24 /

It doesn't offer fancy OLED or a swanky curved screen, but this relatively humble TV still looks tempting.

At CES 2014, we've seen some incredible TV technology, from curved display, OLED 4K, even screens that let you choose whether you want your TV flat or curved. But the problem with all of those things is that unless you've recently discovered oil in your back garden, you probably can't afford them. So, we're gonna look now at something a little bit more modest but really impressive, as well. It's the LG LB7200. Okay. So, this is a 1080p LED TV. It's got a really nice design. If you look at the bezel around the edge, it's really, really slim. I particularly like, as well, the attention to detail on these front-firing speakers. And there's a subwoofer built in to the back, as well. It uses LG's passive 3D tech, which means if you need to buy more 3D glasses, they're quite cheap and they don't require batteries, either, which is a definite plus. Meanwhile, apps and other smart TV features are powered by LG's new WebOS platform-- which hopefully, you should make using those smart features a little bit more intuitive. It's coming out in the first half of this year. I'll be interested to see how it holds up under our scrutinous review conditions. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET here at CES 2014. Check out CES.
