Up for Review: LG 60LD550 LCD TV. Giving you the freedom to choose content from a number of sources, LG’s NetCast is no doubt heading towards popularity. LG stunned with its line of products at CES 2010 and is planning to release the new products one by one into the market. This set is a cost-effective model that incorporates many of the latest features unveiled by LG. Though it still has the CFL backlight like any regular model launched by LG, this one boasts of high-end features like TruMotion 120 Hz that controls any kind of blur caused due to fast action sequences. TruMotions’s faster refresh rate had much better effect on broadcasted content than with the DVD content, so LG is expected to have done some improvements with the sets to be launched this year.

The Cinema Mode comes with pre-calibrated D65 standard white to give you a true theatre like experience while the Sports mode is rich in primary colors and the Game mode comes with more edge advancement and higher black levels. With the Clear Voice II feature you can automatically reduce and increase the frequency of the human voice to make every dialogue heard clearly. It also promises higher surrounding sound effects.
