Last year one of our most recommended mainstream LED-based LCDs was the LG LW5600 series, which combined very good picture quality with solid features at an attractive price, especially toward the end of the year. As the spiritual successor to that TV, the 2012 LM6700 should be just as good, but it's not. This TV takes a step or two backward from its predecessor in picture quality, with grayish black levels and a glossy screen that hampers its image in bright rooms. Yes, I do like the 2012 feature set better and its styling is an improvement too, but neither of those factors can overcome its flaws.
