The LA's biggest extra over from LG's LG 55LA8600 LED TV sets is its built-in camera. A manual slider allows it to pop up above the TV or back down when not in use. Unlike Samsung the company didn't yet implement gesture control despite what we saw at CES or facial recognition, which isn't a terrible omission considering how borderline-useless those functions are. LG didn't completely redesign its Smart TV interface forbut it did add some improvements. In most ways the system is even better than Samsung's own similar "On TV" offering.

The Magic Remote can be used as a pointing device, similar to an air mouse, to navigate the menus, change settings, and select Web apps, but it takes some getting used to.

After 15 minutes or LG 55LA8600 LED TV I got the hang of the remote, but like the PN60F's touchpad remote, it can have a frustrating learning curve if you're not patient.

Underwater scenes from the movie Piranha on Blu-ray appeared sharp with good shadow detail, and the picture was squeaky clean with no noticeable background noise. Motion blur was also non-existent, so there's no reason to crank up the TruMotion de-judder settings.
