LG LF6000 Series 1080p 120Hz LED TV via Amazon
LG Electronics LF6000 series is the 2015 release 1080p Full HD native 120Hz direct LED backlit TVs with 16:9 image aspect ratios, VA panels, with 50 inch 50LF6000, 55 inch 55LF6000 and 60 inch 60LF6000 model options without Smart or 3D features as many people don’t need or want them as they have Apple TV or ROKU. What sets the LF6000 series televisions is the outstanding picture quality with deeper blacks and more vibrant colours at an affordable price. They have 2 HDMI ports (side and rear), 1 USB 2.0 port (video, audio and photo), 1 RF, 1 Composite, 1 Component, 1 Optical Digital Audio Out and RS232, RF In (Antenna/Cable) as connectivity options.
LG 55LF6000 is 400 x 400 VESA wall mountable, has thin gray bezels weighs 40 pounds and measures 48.9 x 10 x 30.4 inches and comes a stand that consists of two small feet- it is light, compact and slim thanks to the LED backlighting technology with very small light transmitting diodes to the picture, rather than the older CCFL technology and you’ll experience clear and sharp images on brighter display as well as fine details and vivid colours (blacks and white are great), also partly due to the Triple XD Engine that processes picture with much greater accuracy resulting in more realistic images- better contrast, colours and motion and Full HD resolution with 1080 progressive lines of resolution on the screen. 120 Hz refresh rate is actually LG’s TruMotion rate and it is an indication on picture rendering rate on screen and you will see minimal blur when you’re watching sports, action movies or playing games and the picture quality will still be very clear and input lag is also very little.
Sound quality is quite good for a HDTV as it comes with the Virtual Surround System that gives you the impression that it comes from all around you and 2 speakers x 10W for a total of 20W sound output- you’ll get high volume and clear sound no matter how loud it is and has Clear Voice II and Dolby Digital Decoder. Build quality seems to be great like most of the other models of LG, is easy to set-up when you first take it out of its box and operate. Cons include poorer gray uniformity and less than ideal viewing angles but we like that black uniformity is superior, it has very little reflection and greater contrast ratio. It doesn’t come with features that many people may not need and it is just a good quality TV with sharp and clear picture with little motion blur and decent sound. As an Energy Star qualified TV it consumes 97 kWh a year and 0.3 watts in standby mode with an estimated annual energy cost of 11 dollars (50LF6000 consumes 82kWh and 60LF6000 110 kWh). It comes with the standard 1 year warranty by LG and you may consider extra protection from Amazon.
