By the way this tv has 3 HDMI ports. It has 2 on the back and another one on the side. Also I am a bit confused it seems like there are 2 versions of this tv. I found this image of the Lg 42lm3400 which shows a SD card slot? and ethernet port, not for smart tv, but for connecting to computers on the network to stream videos, pics ect from pc to the tv.
Edit: I just got the tv and the above image isnt the same unfortunately as the one I have. I am very disappointed in the picture quality of this very thick LED with crazy amounts of backlight leaking through the blacks. Too bad you cant return tvs at Frys!

I think the size is the biggest factor, 50" for that price you can't go wrong. When we first got our 50" a few years back it seemed big in the room, but we adjusted quickly to the size. So for the bedroom, we went a little bigger and we don't regret it.

I think its been confirmed here on SD( via an HD guru article) that the 4600,6200 and 6700 are all 60hz panels
you might have to get the 7600 to geta true 120hz panel wit LG
As for 240...real 240hz that is...I believe that is currently a Sony and Samsung exclusive
perhaps reflected in their pricing....

There are 4 main differences. 1) The LED is 1080p, if that makes a difference to you. 2) The LED uses passive glasses that come with the TV and not active ones (the plasma you have to buy them separately and they are about $45 each. 3) 42 inches versus 50 inches. 4) Plasma has richer color and deeper truer blacks usually than LED, and the 600 vs 60 can make a difference at times in sports viewing. In the end you will have to decide which is better for you and what you plan to view.
In the end, I went with the plasma. Have not had a chance to really test it as I just bought it Wednesday night. So far so good though.

LED is brighter picture with a lot less energy usage. It is only 60Hz compared to Plasmas 600Hz which matters for gaming and less blur during motion pictures.
Plasma seems to be a little darker, but richer in some colors. It also uses a lot of electricity and therefore puts out less heat. Early plasmas had the problem of burn in, but the newer ones are much better at avoiding the problem.

|timlot||Best Buy has a 50" LG Plasma 3D Smartv 720p on clearance for $399. Would this 42" 1080p lcd be a better purchase?|

|ParticleJG||If WalMart is that cheap, I'm thinking hold off. Anyone with me? (Frys "deals" are always lower than the others by quite a bit)|
