New LG Smart Tv series 2013
LG returns this year with a new range of TVs, designed to keep the korean brand among major players on the market.
Today we’ll present a middle class model from LG: the LG 3D Smart TV LA641S.
The TV is a robust one , with a metallic look and a much thinner frame than the 2012 series had. The stand of this LG has been redesigned and has a more classy look.
Rear connections were redistributed, and now the LG LA641 benefits from 3 USB ports on the side.
We watched a few reports, video sequences and a set of images on the LG LA641.Image is clearly improved comparing it with previous models. We have more natural blue tones and the usual small problems due to a weak signal , are resolved through intelligent processing ,so that even the SD images are converted and present no major flaws.
The image is a little darker than similar LED from Samsung or Philips, and although we have tried various settings we never managed to solve this problem.
Of course in most apartments, a slightly lower brightness reduces the fatigue of the viewer, so we can overlook this small issue.
MCI 200Hz-is the LG system for calculation of the frames per second.
Normally 200Hz are fluid enough for a picture, but for the LA641 model , frame completion isn’t done efficiently , so that the fast images appear to have mild stuttering.
Lg preserves this year the passive 3D technology with wich they have accustomed us, further supporting the idea that passive glasses offer a brighter and less bothering image. As a improvement we can see that the corner areas on the screen are much clearer and have less blurring than the 615LM series for example.As always we have 4 pairs of free glasses with the TV.
Smart TV LG LA641
Like other manufacturers such as Samsung, the people at LG have created a new interface for working with the SmartTV.
We have a full suite of applications from Youtube to games and 3D content through the 3D world application.
LG LA641S can play movies from external memory, and good news keep coming :
No more : “Audio codec not supported “ error when playing video files ,the new 2013 LG TV’s will play MKV with DTS audio codec.
LG LA641 also comes with the TimeMachine II feature : you can record programs, shows, you can pause during the movie , or you can replay your favorite programs-Timemachine records live on a external memory , so that you can rest assured – you will not miss any action.
The LA641 SmartTV brings support for keyboard and mouse, along with the Smart TV app on Google Play or Apple Store.This feature is welcomed, we tested the Logitech or Microsoft keyboards and those work perfectly with LG LA641.
Connecting and sharing files with other devices is extremely simple and the built-in WI-DI allows direct playback of HD movies from the laptop , without cable TV (if your laptop has Centrino technology).
Tag ON is another novelty feature presented in the video below which allows playback of what we see on the smartphone directly on the screen of LG LA641.
Overall LG TV LA641 is a very complex TV, which brings many new features but with some flaws on the image and media player that can’t go unnoticed.
