I am fine with my PS3 and my dumb TV and with laptops coming with HDMI/Display port you can get a very smart TV very easily now adays... but I have to admit there is something to be said for the convenience factor of built in apps, especially for the non tech savvy.
i have a roku, however still want my next tv with built in apps, the roku is a PITA sometimes.
This. A $50 roku box will make your HDTV infinitely "smarter" than the built in widgets for which people pay hundreds extra
I was under the same impression. Ended up buying LM6700 for $100 more. I own PS3, 360, Revue GTV, Sony NSZ-GT1 GTV, PBO. LG's PLEX client (Media Link) is superior than any other streaming client I used. I can use TV screen as a second monitor for my Laptop via wifi (WiDi) to stream Hulu in 720P. I can staream directly to TV using NFC enabled andriod devices. I had the ability to do most of these with differnt devices, but having all of them one unit makes this the best 100$ upgrade I ever did.
I just brought the same TV from Best buy and they matched the Walmart price. I brought additionally a LG blue ray player with WIFI to make it smart TV. I will receive the delivery after 3 days. But 55" screen with 3D ability and 2D->3D ability looks good for price.

I have the 47LM4600 and it is a pretty nice TV. Yes, it's not a SmartTV but I already have a PS3, xbox360, wii, 2 tablets, computers, laptops, etc... I don't need a 10th way to update my facebook. The picture quality and color is good. The black levels could be better. I don't notice any back light bleeding during normal operation. Only in a dark room with a pure black screen; even then it is barely noticeable. I paid $550 for the 47 inch version and I'm happy.
PS: I have a 5 year old LG LCD that's been used for at least 8 hours everyday and it still works perfectly (only the power LED light went out). I've never had any LG problems but that could be just luck.
