Summary This tv looks amazing hanging on the wall. That is why a purchased it. When you look at what is offered by this set compared to Samsung, it was a no brainer for me. I essentially purchased it for the sleek form factor. Yes, it has a unique remote, it has "smart" features, it has 3D, but those aren't quite the reasons I purchased it. I am not a hardcore videophile, nor an expert on picture quality. So coming from an average watcher, the picture looks great! That is really all I have to say about it since it's all that matters. The specs can say whatever they want, but at the end of the day, the only thing that matters is what your eyes see, and if they like it then you are golden.
The reasons for buying a tv are purely subjective to the person buying the tv. In my case, I wanted something that looked good when the tv was turned off as well as when it was turned on. The housing being aesthetically pleasing, was high on my tv priority list, and had major pull for me buying either this one or the LM7600. There again simply came down to aesthetics and we preferred the stainless finish of this one over the darker graphite look of the LM7600. Both are essentially the same TV under the hood. A minor TruMotion hz bump from 120 to 240, and better "blacks" (whatever that truly means), but my eyes can't tell and I don't even know if I am that satisfied with these smoothing technologies anyways. I guarantee you, when this tv is the only one you see (most homes have only 1 tv in their room), you will think it looks good.
There seems to be a huge difference from seeing this tv in a brick and mortar store vs seeing it in your own home. It really shines when it is alone. The tv also looks tiny in the store, but huge in your home. 47 inches is PLENTY for me and I sit about 15 feet away from the thing on average. That is of course a subjective feeling too, but for me it seems just fine. The remote works fine, and I wouldn't complain about it. It serves its purpose and I will use it for the smart functions. I use a Logitech remote for most of my A/V equipment, but for "smart" functionality, this magic remote will shine. Its kind of a conversation piece. I wouldn't call it a gimmick as it does work quite well, and is a decent alternative to the standard tap 50 times to input your wireless network key. Yeah you all know what I am talking about too. When you can point to the letters you want on the screen instead of tapping over to each one, you will like the magic remote.
I am sorry this is running longer than expected, I just want to hit most of the bases. The stand is not "overly distracting" as others have noted. I am not using the stand because I wall mounted it. I did set it up on the stand to make sure everything worked and it looked nice sitting there. The stand matches the silver bezel and looks very modern. This may not work for a rustic home, but it isn't overbearing. The minimal framing around the tv is the reason I purchased it. Makes you want to be delicate in handling it, but it does feel very solid.
A quick note on screen reflectivity. It does reflect, but not like a mirror as some people have stated. You can tell efforts were taken to semi gloss the screen. What people need to realize is that when you have a 47"+ piece of glass or plastic staring you in the face, you are bound to see some reflection. The thing is that you want some gloss because this is how you get the clearest picture. I don't know about you, but I have seen iPhones where people put the scratch resistant, finger print proof, anti reflective screen protector on and it greatly reduced their overall screen quality. The iPhone looks best without screen protection. This is the same principle when they put a matte finish on tv screens. The picture will be dulled somewhat to cut down on reflective light.

In conclusion, I hope this review has been somewhat helpful. I aimed to answer some of the questions I had going in. Thank you for reading and have a great day!
Pros Fantastic picture with great lighting, local dimming works very well.The bezel on this tv is small and the design is beautiful,The 3d glasses are actually really comfortable and very light and Passive 3d is excellent
Cons Slightly glossy screen but doesn't affect me even in a relatively bright room
Summary CNET's review does not seem to be fair, I don't trust reviews even if its by CNET. So far most of the people are happy with the LG 55LM6700 don't let(CNET)ruin a nice TV. This tv has a great picture with decent blacks, I do not really agree with the cnet review. I think that the black levels are not as bad as they make it seem and the settings used during the CNET review seem way off from what most people have posted.
Pros Easy to operate
Nice picture quality & sleek build design
Very neat & direct interface
User friendly & responsive Magic remote
Free Streaming 3D content like concert from Kpop app
Play rmvb file through thumb drive plugin (surprise me)
Cons Need to improve on speaker quality but same time I don't expect much from speaker built into such a slim TV.
Summary I really don't understand why Cnet rated this LG 47LM6700 so badly. I always trusted their review and always depend it on my purchase but this time round it's really really wrong .... Bad judgement.
For me, I would really recommend any of my friend & those who's looking for a Smart TV. Worth for money since I'm paying SGD $1,799 for such a performance Dual Core 47" Smart TV with so many nice features. Their 2D to 3D conversion is amazing, the image remain sharp doesn't give me headache when watching them and I had them tested on video files from USB thumb drive, Set-top box programme & Apps video.
"Passive 3D ROCKS!!"on by EdgeOne
Pros Beautiful design
Magic wand, TV menus & intuitive interaction
Internet Apps, downloadable content (rent 3D movies), free streaming 3D content
2D to 3D usually works really well! (spongebob in 3D?! YES!!)
Crisp vivid picture
Cons The onscreen arrow pops up every time, even when just changing volume or moving the remote
The screen seems to be highly reflective (like a plasma)
Wish is swiveled further
EnergyStar on by default - screen dimming is ridiculous with it on
Summary You have limited options when it comes to passive 3D, Vizio, LG, one Panasonic model that I know of. LG nailed passive 3D! So fun to take all kinds of 2D stuff and see what its likes in 3D! Spongebob in 3D is hilarious! Primetime, sports, Dreamcast, Wii, Sega... it doesn't always work, but when it does its magical. When it doesn't, its kind of funny to see how the TV trys anyways. Auto detected Star Wars Kinect's 3D mode and activated automatically - so cool!! 6 sets of glasses for everyone to enjoy, lightweight, no headaches, no charging or batteries... sooo much better than active 3D. As for picture quality, I know its not a reference picture, but its a very good, bright, crisp, vivid, colorful picture! I have a THX certified Plasma, and its great, at night, with lights low.. but in my well lit family room I want something that zings in broad daylight and this TV delivers!
Pros TV is nice in respect to its picture quality, sound quality, design and price. Its passive 3d glasses are extremely comfortable and good looking than any other 3d glass.
Cons It should have thinner bezel similar to LM8600.
Summary Paying for this TV set was the best decision I have ever made by myself for any electronic purchase.
Its magic motion remote architecture is wonderful.
I was shocked when I unpacked my bundle and saw 6 sets of passive 3d glasses inside.
Its smart interface is user friendly though, I haven't tried many of its features yet.
