Sometimes you can catch a good bundle deal on the web and create a whole home theater for one price. Sometimes, it just pays to make a few extra clicks.
Recently, we found a few retailers offering a package with the LG 47-inch 47LM7600 3D LED HDTV, LG’s BP620 3D Blu-ray player and 12 pairs of 3D glasses, for anywhere between $1,299.99 and $1,499.99. Then we went to Amazon and found all of the goodies available for $1,218.94—which includes free shipping for all.
The HDTV comes with six pairs of glasses in the box, so you can save another $100 off by alienating a few friends. After all, do you really have the room (and the snacks) for you and 11 other people?
Also, let’s remember that this is a 47-inch HDTV, so it’s not like you’re going to have some giant Cineplex. Still, it’s a nice HDTV, with passive 3D technology, a 2D-to-3D conversion feature, and 3D depth control. It’s also a nice 2D TV, with a 1080p image (in 2D), LG LED Plus backlighting, TruMotion 120Hz technology, four HDMI inputs and three USB ports.
This HDTV is one of LG’s 2012 Smart TVs, so it delivers on-screen access to thousands of videos, songs, and other apps. Those goodies are easy to find via built-in WiFi and the included Magic Remote control, which allows viewers to navigate through content with the wave of a hand.
Now, that BP620 Blu-ray player also has built-in WiFi and Smart TV features as well—which is nice if you want to put it elsewhere in the house. However, it’s the perfect complement to this 47-inch HDTV, because it can play 3D and 2D Blu-rays, as well as DVDs and CDs.
Just remember that you’re going to need to build your 3D theater through Amazon, which means you have to click on each item and add it to your shopping cart. If you buy through Amazon (and not one of the retailer’s third-party outlets), you’ll score free shipping on each item, as well as a few guarantees on the TV. Amazon prices change often, so these may go up without notice. Start building that theater soon!
