Pros

  • Cinema-style passive 3D has some advantages over active-shutter 3D

Cons

  • We don't know yet

Bottom Line

LG's LW4500 entry-level Cinema 3D LED TV looks to be an impressive piece of technology. We liked the look of the 'Cinema 3D' passive 3D playback when we saw the TV at LG's launch, and including it in a relatively low-budget screen is a smart move from LG.

The LG LW4500 looks like it's going to be the company's cheapest LED TV with passive 3D. LG calls this technology Cinema 3D, using a screen setup not too far from the kind you'll see at your local movie theatre.

It's disappointing to see that the LW4500 doesn't have LG's range of Smart TV Internet access features, especially considering the strong competition in Internet-enabled budget televisions from Sony — we're specifically thinking of the cheap-but-feature-packed Sony BRAVIA KDL-32EX420 LED TV.

When we get our hands on one, we'll let you know what we think of the LG LW4500.

The LG Cinema 3D TVs are the best 3D I've seen outside a movie house.
The passive glasses stop the irritation of the shutter type, and no head-aches.
The depth and natural looking picture is amazing.
In South Africa, the downside is the prices, of both the TVs and the glasses.
This is definately the route to go.

Pros
Best 3D experience on a TV.
Cons
A slight judder is what I see sometimes in a fast moving scene.

I have been using this product for over a month now. 3D experience is very satisfying. Picture quality and color tone is good as well. Only issue that I felt was, there is a slight judder (wont call it blur though) in a fast moving scene. This is evident on SD as well as HD channels. The tru motion setting doesnt seem to help in this case. Not sure if its just my set or this whole product range. Nevertheless, everything else is very upto the mark and fun.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
