LG is still playing catch up to Samsung when it comes to the TV market, but they have certainly been gaining ground over the past couple of years. What makes Samsung such a popular choice is superb features, image quality, a huge range and attractive pricing. LG has most of these covered, but has often struggled when it comes to picture quality.
This is not the case with all of their models, but when we have pitted an LG and Samsung TV side-by-side in the same price range, it was often the latter that came out on top. However, we are not certain the result would be the same if you put the LG 55LA6200 LED HDTV up against a Samsung equivalent, thanks to its mix of specs, features design and competitive pricing.
We have shown in the past that the TV market is not all about those models that cost several thousand dollars, but it does seem as though the commercials would have you believe this is what we all want. That could not be further from the truth, as this model, the LG 42LN5200 and even the Insignia NS-39L400NA14 HDTV proves otherwise.
Moving back to the LG 55LA6200 55-inch LED TV; it’s unsurprising that this model offers 1080p and 3D support. This means to get the most from this model you will need a decent 3D Blu-ray player, and you would be better sticking with LG, as you will then be able to link the remotes up.
Some of those main LG 55LA6200 specs include access to online services such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Hulu Plus and more. To help you get more from action movies or sporting events is the addition of 120Hz TruMotion refresh rate, which helps to reduce blurring. However, two stand out features for us would have to be the Triple XD Engine for ultimate image quality and virtual surround sound from its two 12-watt speakers.
The price of the LG 55LA6200 HDTV is currently just over $1,000, but with Christmas fast approaching, we believe the price will be reduced to less than $500.
