The Good The LG LA6200 LED LCD TV features thin, attractive styling with narrow bezel and sleek swivel stand; a capable, customizable Smart TV suite; accurate color and uniform screen; and is 3D-compatible, with four pairs of glasses included.
The Bad Subpar picture quality overall with light black levels, worse video processing than a typical "120Hz" TV and a middling bright-room image; surprisingly poor 3D image; cluttered Smart interface.
The Bottom Line The midrange LG LA6200 LED LCD TV gets points for looks and smarts, but loses even more due to its picture quality.
Smart, pretty, but lackluster performance
In the cutthroat world of midrange HDTVs, where the profits and growth are even thinner and flatter than the LCD panels, a beautiful face and long list of bullet points only gets you so far. You'll need a good picture at a fetching price to make your mark.
The LG LA6200 looks great when turned off, with its modern, thin, aggressive silver exterior, and just as good on paper, with extensive Smart TV extras and 3D capability. Its performance is another matter. The picture quality of the LA6200 just doesn't match up to other sets in its price range, like Panasonic's E60 LED LCDs, let alone like-priced and even cheaper plasmas, such as Panasonic's S60.and
If you love its looks and smarts, particularly if you invest in an optional motion controller remote, the LA6200 might be worth a second look. But for most TV shoppers in this price bracket, better values can be had elsewhere.
