The LG 60-inch LCD television with SmartShare has regularly received great reviews from professional testers and average consumers as well. In short, the LCD panel screen delivers amazing color, great detail and simply unparalleled viewing angles. With such great features and because it’s made by a big name brand like LG you might expect to pay a lot but that’s simply not the case. This 1080P, sixty inch LCD television is priced to move and works well in any room of the house—even in rooms with a lot of light!
Perhaps the only downside is the fact that the 120Hz setting cannot be disabled. While some may not consider this a problem this is about the only con that there is to be mentioned.
Samsung UN40F6300 40-Inch 1080p 120Hz Smart LED HDTV
With a name that is almost as long as its screen is wide the Samsung UN60F6300 60-Inch 1080p 120Hz Slim Smart LED HDTV is comparable to the LG 60LN5400 in a number of respects. Perhaps the biggest surprise is that a number of people have found the UN60F6300 to be uniquely suited to use as a screen for computer and gaming consoles—which is saying a lot due to the higher refresh rates required of both. In short, this television provides amazing picture quality and no motion blur once it has been correctly tuned.
Sony BRAVIA KDL-55EX500 Series 55-Inch LCD TV, Black
Sony is a name that screams quality in the realm of electronics and the 60-inch HDTV with Full HD 1080p resolution and Motionflow 120Hz technology is no exception. Strangely enough, however, of the televisions we’ve so far reviewed the Bravia has received the least favorable ratings of all. Most likely this is simply a response to the price tag of the Sony which is, unsurprisingly almost twice the price of the LG. Yet, for that kind of money it seems that there is no question about the superior quality of the product.
Sceptre X408BV-FHD 39-Inch 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV (Black)
You may have never heard of Sceptre before and, to be honest, neither had we when we began our review. The Sceptre is a full fifth of the price of the Bravia and less than a third the cost of the LG. So, who could blame us for being skeptical about the quality of the Sceptre. Notwithstanding the incredibly low price, however, the Sceptre performed admirably well. Despite complaints about the Sceptre’s “out of the box” configuration being set to Power Saver mode it still delivers outstanding picture quality and color depth once it has been correctly tuned.
Turning now to some of the cons, it has been noted that the sound is lackluster but what can you expect from a sixty inch television that can be had for a mere four hundred dollars? In addition to poorer reviews for the sound quality many customers found the fact that it automatically switched to 1080i settings for HD television broadcasts but this may have been, in all fairness, a user error.
