Still on version 5.0. Nothing new in the cue, as yet (public release, not engineering).
Anyone know if LG plans to introduce the Smart TV interface that's debuting on newer sets--such as the LG LA7400--to the LM series (LM7600, LM8600, etc)? With version 5, I see some icons got a facelift, but the overall screen design is largely the same.
As for the LA7400; Unconfirmed initial reports suggest a downgrade on stand design (non swivelling, in favor of a fixed "roller ball" concept), along with the back panel being of plastic construction. Maybe that's a weight and thermal advantage, but could make for a less sturdy frame.
Otherwise, essentially the same set, apart from a few new bells and whistles. You know how those go: To Die For in the eyes of some, needless tweaks to others.
...Always interested to see how things fare with the next generation...
