Ultimate Father’s Day Gift – LG 55” Cinema 3D LED Smart TV

Oh the things I do in the name of being a blogger… like the painful task of having a 55″ inch LG Cinema 3D TV for only 30 days as a review unit, but one lucky reader will get to win one of these AMAZING TVs!

You might comment like 1 in 100 movies and there are no TV shows in 3D but thats one great feature the LG 55LM7600 has is the ability to take 2D shows and make them 3D (some shows work better then others).

This is not just a TV but its a work of art… I can only wish to hang one of these sets from my wall instead of having it on the table top.  Using the wifi connection for updates to the firmware is cool but having access to netflix, youtube, and its skype-ready.

Since this was the hunt for content – I started looking at the blurays I’ve collected and never had use for since I didnt have a 3D tv till now, but really made it a breeze was the time warner on demand channels like HBO 3D on-demand.

The tip for parents is if I owned a TV like this with the glasses, I would have to pick up a container to store the glasses in out of the reach of the kids. These glasses are pretty slick looking – which also means I fear that they’ll break too but oh well… I believe you can also use the same glasses you get at the movie theater (but thats just internet rumors).

  1. This TV sounds amazing and considering I’m moving next month it would make a perfect addition to my first home as a single mom. That being said, as a single mom I play Mom & Dad to my son so the reason this “Dad” needs this TV is because I haven’t had a TV for the last three years. We watch Netflix, DVDs and TV online since I havent been able to afford the luxury of a TV yet. This one would be a dream come true!
    Plus I’d let you come over and watch it since you seem to miss it so much already 😉

  2. My husband..”Dad to our 3 kids” needs a new TV because he is watching an old 56″ projection TV. It has seen better days…colors are not what they should be and he deserves an amazing TV to watch all his favorite shows and sports on @cnaes.

  3. Daddy (me) needs a new TV so I can replace my old 50 inch Plasma, We have been looking at 3D TV’s for a few months now and I would love to win this plus my kids would love to watch 3D movies at home.

  4. dad needs a new tv because our current one always needs rescanning to get the stations he wants, and he doesn’t know how to operate that

  5. Daddy needs a new t.v because the one he has right now it’s old and not close to be a smart tv. I know he would go crazy if I got him this one, plus he would be able to watch his games and favorite shows in the big screen! twitter: @cdhabolt email: carito_rmz(at)hotmail.com

  6. Our Daddy needs a TV because we just moved across the country and we werent able to bring it with us

  7. My dad needs a new tv because they are still using one that they had when I still lived at home over 14 years ago.
    What a great surprise it would be for this to show up on their door step. Thank you for the chance.

  8. Daddy needs a new TV because that is what he loves – TV! Ours is ok but he sure would love this one! Plus my birthday is the 10th – would be fun to win this!

  9. Daddy needs a new tv because the only one we got my twins have taken over it!! He has no chance getting even close to it, its two against one =] He works to hard and when he gets home he wants to watch his favorite shows and is stuck either watching cartoons or staring at a wall. He will flip over if he gets the tv of his dreams, the smart tv =] Thanks for the wonderful opportunity!!


  10. Daddy needs a new TV because his isnt even HD ready- meaning that he has to use a converter box in order to even watch TV! It seems everything else comes first- you know stuff like food, car maintenance and he has been waiting patiently for a very long time. It would be so nice to have him watch his beloved football this fall on something that isnt from the stone age. Thanks for the chance!

  11. Daddy sure could use a TV that isn’t filled with children shows for the kids and reality shows for the wife. I can just imagine how March Madness would look on this TV….
    moving on I am now a facebook fan / following on twitter / subscribed to email rss feed.

  12. Daddy needs a new tv because his kids and I have taken over the only one in the living room…He needs on in the bedroom so he can watch his shows.

  13. Why does daddy need a new TV? So that I can stop competing with him for the best TV in the house – I’ll gladly watch our older one and he can have this one. 🙂


  14. Daddy needs a new tv because a)I’m too broke to buy him one and b)I’m not a big enough blogger to get one for free. The man doesn’t ask for much but he really wants a new tv

  15. @Tracy P., oops forgot to leave contact info………its the same for fb and twitter @tracyparral and Tracy Parral on FB thanks for the oppurutnity

  16. Daddy needs a new TV because he didn’t get mommy anything for Mother’s Day and we need to rewatch Game of Thrones in its entirety on a ginormous screen…

  17. Poor daddy needs to win this TV so he can watch sports!!! He is always complaining that he can’t watch any sports. This would make the best dad’s day gift ever!

  18. Daddy, (Me) needs a new TV because I’ve been waiting for 5 years to buy a new one. I couldn’t buy one till I got a new house for the family. I’ve been in the house for almost a year now and it is time for the new TV. Too bad I just bought one. However it is going to come on the 13th so I can send it back if I win this one. 🙂

    I wasn’t sure if the FB one counted so I posted this here too.

  19. This daddy needs a new tv because I’m still hobbling along on a 1999 27″ sony tube that refuses to die.

  20. Daddy needs a new TV because he never gets to watch his. 🙁
    His children are always watching Nicolodean & Disney Channel(after doing their homework) and Daddy has to watch TV on his small laptop with no 3D. (Yeah I am a sucker for my kids and your kid’s wants and needs always come first – every Dad wants their kids to have the best!) Sports and movies just are not the same. Daddy needs a new TV(or his old one) for his bedroom or basement or wherever he is sent so he and his kids can both be happy and family movie night will be like going to the movies in full 3D! (minus the sticky floors) 🙂

  21. The daddy in my house (my husband) desperately needs his own tv. He has a very stressful job, which has caused high blood pressure 🙁 his own tv would allow him some time to unwind and relax. The tv we have now has been taken over by the kids. My husband goes to bed early so he never gets to watch tv. This tv in our room would allow him to relax while catching up on some important shows and sporting events. @bouz76

  22. Daddy needs a new TV to enjoy in the bedroom. The one we have is smaller and doesn’t have a bright, crisp picture. This upgrade would make an excellent Father’s Day present!

  23. I need a new TV so that my Wife, Boys and I can put away the old box tube TV that we use to watch all those fantastic shows like Wow Wow, Diego, Cat in the Hat, Caillou, etc. Makes for good cuddle time. Always wanted to buy a newer one but always find things such as bikes, scooters, balls, and such to spend money on instead. Being a Dad makes you understand that even though you’d love a nice big TV for yourself, you’d rather your kids be happy.

  24. I would love to surprise my husband with this! He’s working super hard to finish his degree, while continuing to be an awesome dad and husband. He’s a football fanatic, so I know he would enjoy watching the games this fall… Thanks for the chance to win!

  25. I commented on the top comment form. Not sure where we’re supposed to comment on this section or the other one…

  26. I \\My fiance needs a new tv becuase our kids scratched up the one we have now, Next one is getting hung on the wall where they can’t touch it


  27. Papa needs a new TV because in 2012 no grown man should be using a tv that has a built in VCR for Pete’s sake!

  28. Daddy needs a new tv because we havent had a new one in forever. Our cable guy laughs at us everytime he comes to work on something and the only way to hang it on the wall would be on a very large shelf. We need an upgrade.

  29. “Daddy” needs a new TV because we’re actually moving in a couple months and could use a new TV in our living room (old one to go in the basement!) Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  30. My husband definitely deserves a new tv because he has been so patient and putting up with the old one that we have had since before we were married and lived together in a tiny apartment. This year is his first father’s day and he is an amazing dad and I would love to win this for him!

  31. My Dad desperately needs a new TV because he’s been using the same, OLD big box TV he bought in the mid 90’s. E-mail listed up above!

  32. The dada in my house needs a new TV because he deserves to sit back and relax when he isn’t protecting everyone else (he is a police officer and a USMC reservist)! 🙂

  33. My dad needs a new tv because Im tired of seeing the old tube tvs coming home from the second hand store. One after the next he brings them home and they break down. He needs something awesome and up to date. Something that will last a good deal of time and is technologically correct for the year 2012. He works hard making everyone else happy. i want to make him happy, 3D would blow his tubes right out the door!

  34. My daddy needs a new TV because he may have the oldest TV… plus your eyesight starts failing after awhile 🙂 I would love to get him a TV where we could actually see the ball during the sports broadcasts

  35. We have a wall in our basement that is waiting for a TV and we’re just waiting to save up to afford to get one. Would love this!

  36. The daddy in this house needs a new TV so I don’t have to watch college basketball (girls! and boys!), pro basketball (every team there is!), college football (Dukieeeeeessss …sorry, I’m over you.), pro football, baseball, golf, tennis, wrestling, NASCAR, all of the ESPN channels, YES, “JAWS” for the trillionth time, “Grease” for the trillionth time, “Friday the 13th” the trillionth time, “Halloween” for the trillionth time, the “Wizard of Oz” for the trillionth time, …you get the picture.

    I need him to win. It’s a sanity thing.

  37. Our daddy needs a new TV because when he gets home from his military job he can watch our videos we made him on it.

    Kawaiichan59 @ yahoo.com

  38. I’ve been researching TVs lately to replace our rapidly declining non – HDTV. LG has been highly recommended and this particular model would be an amazing upgrade to an HDTV.

  39. Ohmygoodness! Daddy needs a new tv for father’s day because our four wonderful children broke our family tv and we’ve been watching on a 19″!!!

    I’m @thmommytsunami or available on email!

  40. Daddy needs a new TV because he let the kids take over his for the Wii..now he may not get it back ever LOL
    and he deserved it too!

  42. I want a new tv cause this one is so sharp.I did all the required rules.

  43. My dad needs a new tv SO BAD! He has had the same tv for over 12 years. It was one of the original “flat screens” that’s about 2 feet thick and weighs at least 200 pounds.

  44. dada needs a new tv- ours is old- lets put it this way- weighs a ton and need a box to have anything from 2000 and up hooked up to it- would be so nice to have the capability to see 3d at home without crowds, or breaking necks in theatre seats or having to actually go out.

  45. Hey there DaDa Rocks! Daddy needs a new TV because he’s an amazing Dad! He always thinks of his family first… working hard and foregoing golf to take the little ones to Chuck E. Cheese! That’s love!!! Thanks so much for the chance to give him this incredible gift for Father’s Day! 😀 @VectoringMomma

  46. My husband deserves a tv because we live with my in laws and he has to sleeP in his childhood room. he moved us to Ohio to give us a better life then the company that hied him closed. He has a good job now and is working so hard to take cars of us. He deserves a BIG treat!

  47. Daddy needs a new TV because his 3 wonderful children are always watching their shows on our one TV. Daddy never gets to watch his shows!


  48. my husband who is a dad needs a new tv because he’s such an amazing dad that always gives up his viewing time for his 3 kids to watch their own shows. He never gets a chance to watch programming that interests him during the day because one of our kids always wants to watch a cartoon of some type. I think that it would be really amazing for him to get a TV of his own for Fathers day

  49. Daddy needs a new Tv cause our current TV is one that I won in a contest working at Ponderosa Steakhouse about 20 years ago! LOL…yep…it still works…but so old! He would love a bigger newer TV that is not ancient!
    landfjacobson @ charter.net (and Carter who is 2 years would also LOVE Elmo to be a bit bigger on the TV LOL)

  50. This daddy needs a new TV. This is my first Father’s day (my baby girl Jovi just turned six-months-old). We still have and use the 32in Toshiba Regza I bought five years ago, the speakers buzz on certain noises, but it is a good TV.
    I also Followed on Twitter, Liked on Facebook, and subscribed by email. oh, and tweeted as directed above.

  51. Daddy needs THIS fabulous LED 54.6 in 3D tv so we can watch action movies with the family & experience them on a whole new level! Watching movies is our main source of entertainment & I can’t even imagine owning something so amazing! A built in camera so we can Skype with family & friends (we do weekly) is huge and the built in wifi (we do daily) would be awesome to have not to mention the 4 HDMI ports, and love the swivel feature too!

  52. the color is really distorted on his current tv and it’s over 15 years old
    tbarrettno1 at gmail dot com

  53. Daddy needs a new tv because he is a 3 time Iraqi War veteran that is still using an old tube tv. I wish I could afford to give an amazing set like this to my husband, but I can’t. He is a war hero, loving father, and amazing husband, and it kills me that we can’t afford luxuries like this. Here’s to wishful thinking.

  54. Daddy needs a new tv to replace his 1991 big tube tv that belongs in a museum. My dad has worked as a factory worker for the past 20 years, so humble, kind, thinking of others always before himself, and giving back to the community be it through church services or being a volunteer firefighter. I’d love nothing more than to surprise him with this set on father’s day and give him an enjoyable experience every time he watches tv from now on instead of having to watch his shows on this clunky big tv that has a shrinking picture, gives off tons of heat, and is a power hogger. Please help me make my dad’s day!

  55. Subscribed to twitter and emailas well as FB. What an awesome giveaway! Ithought Id completely be out of luck for a 3D tv, especially one of this quality, when I lost in Boored Atwork’s contest. Congrats to who ever wins, and I hope everyonehas a great Fathers Day! It will be EXTRA special for one father out theres when this baby gets delivered! (Hey maybe it’ll be me and I’ll actually win! Congratsagain to the winner! – [email protected]
