So when the LG 47LA690V 47-inch Widescreen 1080p 3D Smart LED TV arrived we were pleased. The set up was fairly straight forward, enough glasses came ( And they were comfortable to wear) As I said the other day my wife was a little concerned about having such a huge screen in the house, but the way the actual screen is framed it does feel as though it is less cumbersome and intrusive than the old big box we have donated to my gaming son.

Well when you turn the LG 47LA690V 47-inch Widescreen 1080p 3D Smart LED TV on the LG logo glows in the bottom bezel… before this you would hardly even notice the 1 cm strip of plastic is there. it most certainly does not detract from the viewing experience.
Like I said The Set up and connection process was painless… It was actually worse disconnecting all the stuff we hadconnected to the old set than it was connecting up here.

Hmmm may be I need a few more lessons … it is certainly better than learning sirri! I think we will get the hang of it, but why I need to when this set comes two controllers
Again from The LG Blurb

I think we are learning… word of warning here though, if you have furnished your kids with smart phones. Mine found out pretty quickly that they can download universal smart phone controller apps and had great fun confusing Dad from behind my back… I could not work out the hysterical shrieks when the channel I choose kept reverting to Bloody Holyoaks! Great fun when I found out just what was going on… but if you have smart kids then watch out for this with smart TV.
LG 47LA690V 47-inch Widescreen 1080p 3D Smart LED TV – Gaming
My younger son is a gaming devotee, loves it, and is now spending a lot more hours at work… I thought it strange, as I really thought we might have endless battles for time… but no, he is actually doing extra shifts as a kitchen hand in the local pub to save up for an LG 47LA690V 47-inch Widescreen 1080p 3D Smart LED TV of his very own… I have to say the Graphics are spectacular. We gave him the old panasonic, for his room as we knew that GTA5 was due and didn't want huge arguments… we have had his x box plugged in for a while…to test the graphics and screen responsiveness… wow does nothing to express our feelings here… but then he was banished upstairs… but, he is so impressed with the new set that he is spending far more time at work than he has every has done before … ( Result!)
