LG’s 47 and 55-Inch Cinema 3D Smart TV’s With Google TV Marked Down $700-$800 [Deals]

I’m not even in the market for a new television but I’m starting to second guess if I really need another. Remember those LG Smart TV’s that were announced at this year’s CES 2012? In case you forgot, let me remind you. These are the LED tv’s that come with all the bells and whistles you could ever want in a television like Google TV, 1080p full HD, WiFi, 3D (passive), 6 pairs of glasses and uber thin bezel. I wont even lie to you. I was there for the unveiling, but I knew there’d be no way, in a thousand years, that I would ever be able to afford one of these.

Well, a thousand years wasn’t quite as long as I thought it’d be, seeing as how these amazing televisions have suddenly fit into my budget. If you head on over to Amazon, LG’s Cinema 3D smart televisions have been marked down by as much as 41%, almost halving their original pricing. The 47-inch model was previously $1,700, now marked down to $1,000, while the 55-inch, originally $2,300, can now be had for $1,500.

LG 55-Inch Cinema 3D 1080p 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV with Google TV $1,500

LG 47-Inch Cinema 3D 1080p 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV with Google TV $1,000

The only downside is that these are the “lower-end” of the Cinema 3D line featuring a 120Hz refresh rate and bezel (the higher-end models have virtually no bezel), but all the other included bonuses should more than make up for these shortcomings. Both tv’s comes with a keyboard remote control for easy surfing of the Google Play Store and promised Onlive compatibility in the future.

This is a damn near impulse buy. Before you start with the LG hate, keep in mind these are televisions — not Android devices — and something LG excels at (current owner of an LG LCD TV). Anyone already thinking up good excuses for when the wifey finds one of these big boys on your doorstep?

        You got ripped off…

    • Raymond Rodgers

      If I had the money, I’d have bought them at the previous price point! I know a lot of people aren’t into 3D but frankly it’s better to have the feature in the TV and not need or use it than is to want or need it and not have them.

        I hear ya. The best part is the passive 3D on these televisions is amazing. I saw it firsthand at CES earlier this year and was blown away. With 6 glasses coming with every TV, now my whole fam can enjoy a 3D movie or 2 :)

    • JRomeo

      just wait until black friday, last year i purchased a 65inch 1080p HDTV from walmart for $995

  • NIGHTSCOUT

    Honestly, makes me mad i just spent $1,000 6 months ago on a much lesser quality TV.

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      I spent $500 about 6 months ago on a 42-inch LG lcd. Loved it, but now it’s going on Craigslist!

        Chris could you please explain with no tech words this part

        ” The only downside is that these are the “lower-end” of the Cinema 3D line featuring a 120Hz refresh rate and bezel (the higher-end models have virtually no bezel)”.

        I would appreciate the info I really would like to understand this downside part since I am really interested in getting one but I just want to be 100% SURE before spending a thousand bucks.
        I also would like to know if this tv would be compatible with WIDI (Wireless Display) for a Sony Vaio Laptop using a Netgear Push2tv Hd Adapter??
        here is the link if you want more info about the laptop I own.

    Waiting for around Christmas to jump on a 60 in plasma from Panasonic

    • Eric Silva

      I’m with you. I am eyeing that 60″ ST50!

  • DavidVarghese

    Thats mighty attractive

  • godrilla

    I want the samsung 55es8000 TV with motion and voice control puts this to shame.

    • Ljnemesis

      Not worth it.Already had to send back two very bad tv.. I fell for all the b***s*** but it turned out to just be garbage

  • Brian S.

    what is the best type of screen now days? Honestly l e d tvs look weird to me. I know there’s also plasmas lcd and et cetera.

    this might sound weird but I haven’t owned a tv set in over 5 years. I never watch tv.

    • Robabobbob

      IMHO LED but there are a number of factors.

      Plasma: Pros: Deeper blacks, Cheap. Cons: Bigger, becoming rare, shorter life span.
      LCD: Pros: Cheap. Cons: Bulky
      LED: Pros: super thin, low power usage. Cons: Cost

      There are other arguments between the types but these are the main issues.

  • Robabobbob

    One of these sounds perfect as the refresh rate is not an issue as I think 3D tv’s are the biggest gimmick since, well 3D movies. All the other features rock, it’s just a shame that’s there is no UK release and no google TV over here :(

  • MrDSL

    Maybe I’m just spoiled but I can’t do anything under 60″

  • http://twitter.com/belogical2 Be Logical

    purchased :) thanks for the heads up.

  • Steven Skwarkowski

    Im cheap (or a good shopper, depends of your perspective). I picked up a used Samsung 47″ LED (7000B-Series) TV that was nearly new for $450 off Craigslist. I just cant see spending 2-3 times as much.
