The LG LM6200 Cinema 3D Smart TV series is part of LG's 2012 LED TV lineup.


Officlal Product Page:
http://www.lg.com/my/tv-audio-video/...-tv-LM6200.jsp


Available sizes:

42", 47", 55", 65"


Latest firmware:

3.20.31


Key features:
  • "Passive" 3D - comes with six pairs of glasses and built-in 3D demo apps
  • Glossy screen
  • 4 HDMI inputs
  • Built in wifi
  • 120 Hz
  • LG's "Magic Remote" (a Wii-like remote control)


I own the 55LM6200, which I purchased from Fry's Electronics in April. The TV shipped with firmware version 3.02.83. I have it hooked up to a Windows Media Center HTPC, an Xbox 360, and an Apple TV.
  • Nice picture!
  • I have some edge flashlighting, only visible during dark scenes/transitions
  • Built-in wifi works great with both my 802.11n and 802.11g networks
  • Works with my Harmony remote to switch inputs and power on/off the TV, but not navigate apps/settings (you still need the Magic Remote for this). The Harmony software recognized the TV model number.
  • If you bump the Magic Remote, a cursor will appear on the screen for a little bit and then disappear - this is a bit annoying at first but I got used to it
  • The stand is flat black plastic, not silver-ish as it might look in the product photos. The TV does swivel on the stand.
  • No problems with lag on my Xbox 360 as far as I can tell

Finally an official thread for this "sleeper" LG model lineup.. I'm considering the 65" version and weighing it against the SHARP 70847U. I haven't been able to view 3D on the SHARP anywhere, but at BB, LG passive, to my eyes, just pwns the abysmal SONY active model display.


I'd love to hear owner impressions of 2D picture quality on this line..

I really like the 2D picture. This model is way better than my old Philips 42" LCD from 2006, both in crispness and brightness, and I have yet to try to calibrate the TV. I was worried about seeing any kind of soap opera effect, but I don't.


When I was shopping, I looked at the Samsung D7xxx and the D8xxx lines, as well as the LM7600. From the Best Buy and Fry's showrooms, I thought I could tell that the Samsungs and the LM7600 had a slightly better picture, but couldn't justify the difference in price.

Not many are buying this model I think.. most of the LG user-base is on the 7600 and above models. I wonder why!

And your theory is.....?

Looking at Amazon this is the only LG model that comes in 65".

Those of us who are shopping 60"+ screens are stuck with a relatively lower model in LG's lineup only because the higher models don't have a 60"+ set.


It's a shame really.. To my eyes and mind, passive 3D looks great! However, from the few reviews on this site, jury is still out on the 2D PQ for this model line.

Just placed an order on one. Hopefully it is better then a TN panel monitor I'm using now. Football is coming and I need a tv to pair with my new surround sound.

You are spot on. After a year of watching the 65LW6500 and an email from LG confirming the 72LM9500 would not be released in North America this year, I caved and bought the 65LM6200. I really wanted that 6 footer in the worst way, but I wasn't about to miss out on another year of 3D films at home.


I'll post some opinions of the 65LM6200 next week.

I was in exactly the same boat. Got my parents the 55LW5600 last year and was eyeing the 65LW6500 since december. the lack of 72LM9500 and the price drop to just a hundred above the 6500 got me to go 65lm6200 on the 19th.


Delivery happened on Wednesday. Unfortunately, they gave me a broken tv. There was a huge dent on top and the screen itself was visibly bent. Didn't even bother powering it up, it just went back to the delivery truck. The vendor's shipping me a replacement, but it won't show up until next Wednesday.

Where did you order from? I was pretty surprised that I was able to order on the 29th, and Amazon (Pilot) delivered on the 31st. I was guessing at least a week.


Despite the horror stories I read online, Pilot delivery was pretty seamless. They unpacked the box, assembled the stand, put the tv in the stand, and then placed the tv where my old one was. Afterwards they reviewed the paperwork and asked if all was satisfactory.

Same, Amazon + Pilot. The delivery folks were awesome, and the damage was totally not their fault (as far as I can tell) since the damage didn't match any damage (none) on the box holding the TV.


Replacement enroute will be Eagle/CEVA... hopefully they'll be as good.


Did you notice that amazon had a notice that the delivery people aren't going to assemble the stand nor place it anywhere you want? I saw that written in my paperwork.

Yes, I also received an email stating the same. I was sure glad they assisted though. I live by myself and would have had to wait for a friend to come over otherwise. Tough to lift a 65" screen solo.

Quick update. Got the set on Monday and have been too busy watching it to post



The delivery service sent 1 person to deliver the TV which made it difficult to get up and running, but I'm just glad the TV is in pristine shape.


In case anyone is wondering, DirecTV has the 65LW6500 remote codes in their system, but not the 65LM6200 (as of when I set it up Monday, haven't checked since). I had the DTV box program the remote and it worked like a charm. No more twitching the magic remote, except when I want to turn 3D mode on/off.


watched Cars 2 in 3D off the PS3 for a little bit, then tried Halo Reach dual play on my X360. DIY'd two dual play glasses by sacrificing 2 of the 6 3D glasses that came with the TV. You have to cut and trim the lens to swap them, unfortunately, so there's a small gap near the bridge, but otherwise worked ok. Noticed some crosstalk though, but otherwise I'm looking forward to some full-screen 2 player gaming.


My DirecTV subscription has three 3D channels and made mention of summer olympics being broadcast in 3D. Definitely looking forward to that in a few months.


2D-to-3D conversion is pretty darn good. I watched some shows and it feels very natural, if you can get used to having an extra pair of glasses on. Luckily the 3d glasses fit over my prescription glasses just fine.


All in all, I'm a happy camper.

got the 65" from Frys on Monday, delivered Tuesday. amazed that the pic was so good right out of the box with no adjustments. old vizio 55" had good pic too but the LG is better. Only issue I have is with the smart home screen function. when I press home button on remote all I get is black screen with tv audio. no other buttons work except power and volume. all other quick menu apps seem to work ok. have to turn tv on and off to get back to regular tv viewing. Still researching for a fix but probably will have to do a factory reset. otherwise, I couldnt be happier. cant wait for football season to get started.

Just picked up a 47lm6200 from Frys in their crazy sale this week. Overall pretty happy with it. Really like the built in DLNA feature works great with my media server. Wish the tv had a pandora and amazon indtant video apps, surprised it didn't have pandora.
