I purchased this TV to replace a 42″ LG in my master bedroom (which replaced a 40″ Sony XBR6). (FWIW, both of those TVs were purchased from Amazon. I have purchased six 40-47″ TVs from Amazon and have never had any shipping problems or damage.) I originally started with the 42″ version of this TV which was returned to Amazon due to some screen uniformity issues (more later). Due to the LA6200′s thin bezel, the 47″ worked in my space. I’ve had it for 4 weeks and I’m quite pleased with it overall. If I could give half stars, I would award it 4.5. I can’t and on balance I thought it was more fair to give it 5 than 4.

APPEARANCE:

This is an impressively styled display. The dark gunmetal bezel is quite attractive. I was glad to see LG left off the silver accents that are creeping into more of their models. I view those as unnecessary styling elements that detract somewhat from the overall appearance of the set. LG designers did a great job on the LA6200.

Several have commented this TV is much thicker than some of the very thin models on the market. That is necessitated by the back lighting system LG utilized on this model line. All LED TVs have LCD panels. LCD panels, unlike plasma displays, are incapable of generating their own light…they must be back lit to produce a visible picture. The very thin TVs are edge lit. The LEDs are placed on the left and right or top and bottom of the panels and mirrors reflect the light onto the panels illuminating it to provide a picture. This configuration allows for a very thin TV, but there are compromises. The primary concern is called flashlighting. If there was a scene with a bright moon against a dark sky, the LEDs on the edge of the panel would have to light up the moon.
