IPS is as IPS does. The LG LA690V has faithful colours and great 3D image quality, but it has such low contrast and response times that how we could we possibly give it more than three stars?

Great 3D image with no crosstalk
Natural colours (Delta E 2.1)
Media player reads lots of file formats
Wireless connectivity (WiDi
Miracast)
Very low contrast 610 1)
Poor sound quality

Could do with more catchup TV services
Standarddefinition performance is below par
