LG has released some spectacular TV designs this year, but not all of us can afford 3 grand on a television.
I am Ty Pendlebury, and this is a review of the LG LS4600, and it starts at the much more affordable street price of $700.
While not a design superstar, the TV isn't bad looking with a slim black bezel and a distinctive swivel stand.
The remote control is a fully fledged ball and fairly friendly.
lacks internet connectivity.
So, features are limited to USB Media Playback or connection via 1 of 3 HDMI ports.
As far as picture quality is concerned, the 2012 LGs have been a mixed bag with a couple of standouts and a whole lot of draws.
And unfortunately, this TV fits in the latter.
Black levels are bad.
Even for the price and more shadow detail is good, it is obscured by big backlight clouds and bluish tones.
Color is okay, but there is a lack of vibrancy
that even TVs at half the price can muster.
But at least it has a swivel stand, right?
Unfortunately, the LG LS4600 doesn't do enough of anything at all to justify its high price and is definitely not recommended.
This is Ty Pendlebury for CNET.com.
