When it comes to 47-inch LCD TVs, there is no shortage of models to choose from. The LG 47LD690 is one of the hundreds of LCD TVs that was released this year. Unlike other LCD TVs in its class, the LG is part of the elite Infinia lineup. It is a name that is synonymous to superb home theater experience.

One of the main aspects that makes the LG 47LD690 stand out from the rest it is design. The ultra slim frame and piano black finish gives the device a very edgy yet elegant feel. What makes the LG’s piano black finish stand out is its ability to blend to its environment with ease. The device’s sleekness and finish makes it an ideal LCD TV for all types of homes. Weighing in at around 40 lbs, the TV can be easily mounted to a wall or moved from one room to another.

Looks is not the only thing the LG 47LD690 possesses. The LG TV features exquisite picture quality that can rival any LCD TV under its class. It is also equipped with a whopping contrast ratio of 70,000: 1. Its color depth is warm and vivid. The overall picture quality of the LG is nothing short of perfect.

Compatibility is an important element for any LCD TV and LG did not leave any room for error when they made the LG 47LD690. The device can handle all types of video formats. It can handle 420p up to the latest 1080p. The default aspect ratio is 16:9, but you can easily change it to 16:10. However, we recommend the 16:9 aspect ratio because it is the industry standard for DVD and Blu-Ray movies.

On top of being backwards compatible, it is also very handy. The LG is equipped with Wireless AV Link that makes it possible to stream HD movies, music, and pictures from other wireless devices. The LCD TV also has a Netcast feature, which let users access HD content via the internet.

When people buy a 47-inch LCD TV, they want something that has picture quality at a good price. However, most of us forget to consider the regular use of the device like watching cable. Most of the time we just watch regular programming and having to turn on the sound system just takes so much electricity.

That is why it is important for any LCD TV to have quality speakers that are powerful enough for regular use. The two internal speakers on the LG are powerful enough for any living room. LG even added Clear Voice II, which helps optimize the quality of the human voice. This would result to clearer dialogues scenes.

Unlike other ultra-sleek TVs, the LG 47LD690 has enough ports in its back to put its counterparts to shame. The 3 HDMI ports are placed conveniently on its side and its USB 2.0 port is compatible with external data storage and flash drives. In addition, the Smart Energy Plus can save you hundreds of dollars every year.

The LG 47LD690 has everything you will ever need in a TV. It has the best picture quality in its class without sacrificing its ultra sleek design. Its design and performance easily makes it a device worth getting.
