LG 55LM9600 3D LED LCD HDTV Review$2,999.00
Like many HDTVs, the LM9600's HDMI and USB inputs are located along its left side. There are 4 HDMI ports and 3 USB ports, with the USB ports serving different functions: one is designated for a hard drive connection, the second is for a media device, and the third for apps updates.
A recessed area on the back of the TV houses the rest of the ports: component and composite inputs, PC input, cable/RF input, PC audio input, optical/digital audio input, and a wired (LAN) input can all be found here.
Other than its dedicated USB update and wired LAN inputs, the LM9600 does not have a plethora of multimedia ports; that is to say, it has the basics, but nothing we'd call "fancy." Still, it allows for firmware updates; picture, music, and video playback; and portable hard drive access.
The ports on the LM9600 follow a standard design scheme, with more commonly accessed/changed ports (HDMI and USB) located along the left side, while the rest of the available ports (composite, cable, audio inputs) are located within a recessed area on the back of the TV. This has proven to be a good port set-up in the past, and is doubly ease to use when combined with a display that swivels.
