LG 47LM6200 Review
The LG 47LM 6200 LED edge lit LCD HDTV is perhaps the best current value on the market today! With a razor sharp crystal clear picture, the absolute BEST 3D passive system available and wireless connectivity coupled with web browsing and limitless apps and 3rd party video content providers, you just can’t beat it!
I find a 47 inch HDTV to have the SHARPEST picture obtainable. The larger the screen, the farther apart the pixels are placed and the less cohesive the image becomes. Unless you plan to sit 10 ft or so away from your television I honestly think a 55 inch screen doesn’t provide the best picture quality. Perhaps when OLED displays with 4k tech become the norm that will change. But for now, all 3 of my LG flat panels are 47 inch and for a good reason.
Let’s start with the picture quality. The video ‘engine’ inside provides you with a beautiful 1080p rendering from any source component. Whether it is your HD DVR , your Blu Ray Player, or your Standard DVD or even VHS machine, the LG 6200 will up-convert your video signal and present you with the best possible rendering. The color decoders LG provides are top notch. With just a small amount of user calibration you can dial in near perfect color rendering and with the correct backlight/contrast/brightness settings you can obtain previously unheard of contrast ratios that look GREAT in any amount of light.
Don’t even get me started on passive 3D. For me, it is the only way to watch 3D. No eye strain, no heavy expensive glasses and a fully enveloping, crystal clear viewing experience. And LG has passive 3D down to a science. It is the very best I have seen. Period! (the 6 pairs of included 3D glasses don’t hurt one little bit either!)
I can honestly say that a television with this picture quality and feature set would have cost 10 thousand dollars or more just 6 years ago, had it been available then. Build quality, by the way, is excellent. There is nothing cheap or flimsy about this TV in any way. From the HDMI connectors to the included stand it is quality all the way. Just about the only thing I can possibly complain about is the power cable which is attached, but my higher priced LG 7600 also has that little niggle. (in fact, MOST TV’s do)
The included web browser and user apps, coupled with the vast array of premium content, You Tube accessibility and more makes this an ‘All in One’ entertainment center. Use the included magic remote in the same way you would a Wii game controller. The cool factor is high with this LG! Don’t forget about wireless connectivity to your internet router. (Look Ma, no wires) Really, it is amazing what you get for your money with this 6200.
I recently purchased their new 7600 which is 2 models up from this one. The only major difference is a slightly different bezel and cabinet styling, plus the 6200 gives you a 120hz refresh rate, verse the 240hz rate of my 7600. Nine times out of ten the average person simply can not SEE the difference between those two refresh rats and let’s face it, a 120hz rate is TWICE AS GOOD in that critical department as our old school CRT tube televisions were. The visual quality of the edge lit back-lighting is spectacular and in my opinion LG has edge lit LED TV’s nailed! My 7600 has quasi local dimming that LG calls ‘LED Plus’, but honestly in almost every real world situation it is NOT a necessary thing to get excellent performance out of an edge lit set. And believe me, this 6200 gives you TOP edge lit performance, of that there can be no doubt at all. If you can afford to spend another 2 thousand dollars on a full array local dimming LED TV then by all means do so, but if you are looking for the best value and picture in a very thin edge lit HDTV, then LG is simply the best in that department bar none!
I was just watching a PAL Columbo DVD (an old 1971 episode) and was thinking to myself about how great this TV can handle standard DVD resolution. A good trick is to engage the Mpeg Noise reduction to the “LOW” setting (found in the Picture options sub menu) and make sure your super resolution is turned on. I have been able to get near HD results from standard DVD’d doing this. Great digital tool box in this TV and at no extra charge!
I am a huge LG supporter. This is the 3rd LG LED 47 inch TV in 2 years. I have been impressed since day one with both the picture quality, amount of features and mature well thought out software implementation provided. The functionality and maturity of the software control systems are a MAJOR plus with LG. This is not a Beta tester product. Everything has been well thought out and executed to give you the highest quality performance. Things work the way they should, due largely to extensive research and development and TESTING on LG’s part BEFORE they ship their products to you.
Bottom line: This LG looks, sounds and works the way you WANT it to!
At the current price, the LG 47LM6200 represents one of the very top values in HDTV today. Read my caveats at the very end of this review, but otherwise you just can’t beat this TV for the price. IT currently resides in the master bedroom , connected to a Fios HD DVR and Oppo Blu Ray player but could easily be the center of ANY living room entertainment center or home theater set-up. I truly believe it smokes the competition and as such I recommend it very highly!
*** Check customer images for a few PICS I uploaded showing how this TV looks in the ‘real world’ !
In the interest of full disclosure and fair play I am going to include a small list of shortcomings that befall ALL edge lit HDTV’s. This is the same thing I posted at the end of my LG 7600 review and it is also applicable to THIS model.
PLEASE READ ON IF YOU ARE TECHNICALLY MINDED and SUPER PICKY about your VIDEO:
***A word about Flashlighting, Vertical Banding, Clouding and Dirty Screen Effect. These are the artifacts or ‘defects’ that plague ALL edge lit LCD/LED panels. Some brands are better than others for keeping them at bay. The exact same model of TV may vary widely from unit to unit. My TV may have more artifacts present while another may not.
Basically you need to evaluate your own TV for what you might consider an ‘acceptable’ level of any or all of these things. By the very nature of an edge lit displays design you just can not escape this, but manufacturing tolerances vary greatly and although you may need to possibly return one or more units you can eventually end up with one you can live with.
The flashlighting on this 6200 is VERY slight, but it IS there and more noticeable during certain types of program material. Keeping your backlight down in the 50-55 range with your contrast in the 85 to 90ish range will GREATLY diminish any flash lighting you may experience. On horizontal pans of light background material you WILL see Vertical banding of varying degrees. I also have SOME dirty screen effect (Google it) and just a BIT of clouding depending on the program material. This is NOT a product defect, but to be expected with an edge lit LED HDTV. Again, it is very slight and not overly noticeable to most people.
Just be aware that ALL these things are inherent in Edge Lit displays. If you just can’t live with them (in my case, hardly ANY but still….) then you need to consider a plasma or a full array backlit LCD/LED not an edge lit TV. Also, THOSE types of TVs ALSO have problems, just different ones. (halos, screen uniformity issues, stuck pixels, buzzing, excess heat, burn in, etc.)
BOTTOM LINE: With the exception of possibly the new Sharp ELITE models ( more than 5k to start) there is currently no such thing as a perfect display. Do not set your expectations higher than the technology will allow for. I am VERY pleased with this 6200. It offers an increased level of fine detail that was not present in my Pioneer Kuro Plasma from 4 years ago. The picture quality is on par with my LG 7600 , a TV costing a good 400 dollars more. The color accuracy is REALLY good and motion handling extremely good!
A word about adjusting your picture: As a rule of thumb, RESIST THE URGE to put your backlight to 100! The mistake many people make while trying to get a good picture is not understanding how to properly find the ‘sweet spot’ on their TV settings. You want to leave yourself plenty of ‘headroom’ and not clip the visual dynamic range and end up with everything looking positively radioactive!
Put your backlight down around 50 and crank up the contrast to around 85 , and play with your brightness control so that things are neither too dark or washed out. The more brightness you use, the more color intensity is needed, but adjust them in SMALL increments and test them on all types of material. Your cable box/dvr will need a different setting from your Blu Ray player. Every device sends a differently calibrated signal with different ideas of what constitutes a ‘nominal’ value. I STRONGLY urge you to invest in the Disney Worlds of Wonder, Digital Video Essentials or the Spears and Munsil calibration disc. Do the best job you can , then let the electronics ‘burn in’ for around 100 hours or so and do it again. It is a tedious process but you will be rewarded with the best picture quality on your block and a much more enjoyable viewing experience! I am currently enjoying overall the BEST picture on ANY HDTV I have ever owned and can thank the Spears and Munsil disc for much of it.
**As always, there ARE a small % of tech failures in electronics and purchasing an extended warranty would be a smart move as no matter how expensive something is, electronics DO fail and at the worst possible times.
Thanks for reading my review and ENJOY your new LG 6200. For the money, it can not be beat! Seriously!
Review by Adam.
Well, it’s time to upgrade the TV as the old 42″ Toshiba LCD is going in the bedroom to replace the 27″ tube set.
I have to admit that I really didn’t do much research on this purchase; I did that 4 years ago when I got my first LCD, so going into this, I knew I wanted an LED LCD display (plasma is out; the room is too bright), I wanted to go larger than 42″ but no more than 50″ and it had to have built in wi-fiw with a cost of under $1,000.00.
To my surprise, my options weren’t as limited as I thought for the price point I was looking at, but I was able to quickly narrow it down to this and a comparable Samsung. The LG and Samsung were identically priced, but this had 1″ on the Samsung and 3D capability. While I wasn’t really interested in whether or not the TV could do 3D going into the purchase, it was a nice extra feature and it made the deal for me.
Stand/base assembly was quick and easy, and setup was a snap. I thought the idea of a Wii like remote was going to be kind of strange, but I’ve gotten used to it and it’s actually quite nice to not have to mash buttons to go through all of the settings; the on screen cursor made life just that much easier. My only gripe here is the stand appears to be a little flimsy as the TV is easily wobbled when touched. I mean, it seems sturdy enough, I don’t think it’s going to just break on it’s self and the solution to the wobble is simply to not touch the TV, so it’s really not that big of a deal.
The picture quality is quite amazing, and I was actually a little surprised at how much better it looks than my 4 yr old Toshiba. The second surprise was, it didn’t look terrible out of the box, but I am slowly tweaking the picture settings to get it just right. I was a little worried about this not having local dimming, but “flashlighting” or bleeding hasn’t been an issue. The 3D up-conversion is actually pretty cool and done well. The only issue that I’ve seen so far is while watching cable, there is an occasional stutter in the picture, like everything is in slow motion for 2-3 seconds. I’ve only watched on DVD so far and I didn’t notice this stutter, but it could have happened… I just don’t know if it’s the TV, the cable service or the HDMI cable. Another plus is the viewing angle is much improved from my last yet, very happy about that.
Despite all of the negative things I’ve read about the on-board speakers, I found them to be acceptable, although this is really a moot point as most often, the sound is diverted to my receiver, even for casual viewing.
Otherwise, wi-fi setup was painless – I just punched in the code and off I went. I haven’t used the apps much, but I did poke around on Netflix a little and I really like how it’s laid out. Much better interface than the Netflix app on my Blu Ray player. I also vied a few You Tube videos and all was well, so I’m sure the apps will not be a problem and Netflix will get used heavily.
I can’t really complain; this was priced rate, it’s feature rich, it’s larger than my old TV and it looks fantastic! I really didn’t take brand into consideration when I made this purchase, but LG did a really nice job and I’ll look to them when I’m ready to get my next TV.
Review by D. P. Taylor.
Okay, so I’ve had this literally sitting in the box in my living room for two months (!!!). I needed my husband’s help to assemble it and he is now finished with school. So yesterday we assembled it (pretty easy) and hooked it up; we’ve been playing with it ever since. Here are our observations:
1) The picture quality is amazing! Many movies look more like you’re watching a live play (think Playhouse Theatre production) instead of a movie; the people are dimensional, their shadows are so lifelike–it’s like nothing else I’ve ever seen. We’ve tried the 2D-to-3D, and neither of us is wowed by it; maybe for an action movie it will be cool, but the regular picture in 1080p is awesome–SO much better than our former 720p Samsung.
2) The viewing size (47″) is perfect for our living room; my husband can watch sports from our dining room with ease.
3) The sound is very clear and crisp. We don’t have any external speakers hooked up to it and are happy with the different available settings for the sound.
4) The fact that we were able to connect wirelessly to our home network is pretty darn cool, even if we don’t use it much. I’ve seen that LG now makes a Google TV with a keyboard; don’t know if the keyboard would work with this set but I’d be very tempted to get one if it did.
I fear my husband will watch even more television now that we have this set since the quality is so fantastic!
1) the lack of good instructions/manuals with the set, especially for all the settings, is disappointing. With our previous Samsung we had a booklet that explained all the settings and options. With this set we’ve had to simply explore everything which is pretty time consuming. We discovered that by leaving ON the Energy Saving option, the picture got darker after awhile–so we turned that off.
2) When we set it up yesterday, it appeared we would have to use 2 remotes: the Magic Remote to change channels, and our Verizon Fios remote for volume and other functions. Then I remembered that we had to “tune” our Fios remote to recognize the LG TV (ours used code 3145) and now we can use the Fios remote for everything related to television viewing. We still aren’t sure if we’ve got our DVD player connected right; will test that this week.
3) we tried Auto Tuning the set but it didn’t recognize any channels so that’s why we are simply using our Fios remote. We’ll call LG customer service to get that straightened out. Because of that when you move the Magic Remote to the top of the screen, there is no info on what channel you’re watching (although clicking on “Info” on the Fios remote tells you).
4) After reading a review here, I noticed that everything we’ve watched is coming in at 60Hz, NOT 120Hz. We’ll also ask the LG customer service about that, and when the upgrade will be available. It DOES seems a little like false advertising if it’s not using 120Hz right now. Even at 60 Hz, the fast action shows we’ve watch have been smooth, with no pixel degradation. I’ve read it isn’t as big an issue with LED (like this one) and plasma TVs as it is for LCD TVs.
5) Another thing about the Magic Remote having no manual, we haven’t figured out (if we decide to use it) how to switch from one channel to another specific channel since there isn’t a numbered keypad on the remote. KWIM???
I see that this set also comes in “aluminum” which I think is preferable; this black is a dust & fingerprint magnet. In fact, we are going to put our old swivel base under the TV so it will turn much easier with fewer reasons to grab the TV itself.
All in all, this is a wonderful TV with fantastic picture and sound quality.
