Review If design is the most potent weapon in a TV manufacturer’s armoury right now, LG is wielding a pretty big shooter with its new Cinema Screen line. Offering corner to corner glass, a 10.5mm bezel and what the brand calls a ‘floating metal ribbon stand,’ these 2012 flatties are genuine head-turners.

Looking Smart: LG's 47LM670T

The first in the range to arrive on the Reg Hardware test bench is the relatively affordable 47in LM670T. It lacks the high-end picture tech packed into step-up models like the LM960V and LM860V but doesn’t skimp on build. From the taut plastic back plate to the wraparound metal trim, this is an extremely well made TV.

Quality construction

The good looks extend onscreen. The TV features a completely redesigned dashboard which integrates net streaming services such as iPlayer and YouTube with other sources of content, from terrestrial TV to network devices. As you scroll horizontally from one screen to another, tiled boxes pop open, inviting you to explore. It’s a smart, contemporary approach to UI design.

Input menu list

While the Smart TV interface may have evolved, there’s no change to the sheer breadth of content offered on LG’s portal. LoveFilm, Blinkbox, Acetrax, Box Office 365 and Dailymotion are all present, alongside social media apps and causal games.

MP3 playback transport

Streaming from local USB and across a network is similarly extensive. MKV, WMV, AVI, MP4 and MOVs all play, as do MP3, AAC/M4a and WAV audio tracks; the TV displays any album art provided. You can also timeshift programmes to an external USB drive. Overall, it’s a strong feature set.
