A couple weeks ago we told you about a killer sale on LG Google TV’s happening at Amazon.com. We wanted to update you that the sale is still in effect, but with slightly different prices. The 55-inch LG has an MSRP of $2300, but is now $1334.00. The 47-inch has an MSRP of $1700, and is now only $1099.00.
It is not clear how long these offers are going to last, and the prices do appear to be fluctuating. If you want to take advantage of this great offer, hit up the links below to check out the deals.
Consumer Reports, a leading non-profit magazine that publishes reviews and comparisons of consumer products, has stated that LG’s G2-series Google TVs performed well in their test labs. From the report posted last Friday:
LG’s G2-series LCD TVs are notable for being the first TVs we’ve tested with the revamped Google TV software(Google TV 2.0), which provides a more streamlined interface, more comprehensive search capability, and access to Google Play, the Android apps market. We tested a 55-inch set ($1,700) that uses the company’s passive 3D technology. It’s loaded with features, including an edge LED backlight, built-in Wi-Fi, and of course a full Web browser (Chrome) and access to online content, including streaming movies and TV shows from several services.
In case you missed our post from a couple days ago, both the 47-inch and 55-inch LG G2-series Google TVs are over 40% off at Amazon.com, priced at $999 and $1382 respectively. It’s not clear how long the sale will last, so if you’ve been eyeing one of these TVs you may want to take advantage of the amazing price drop while it still lasts.
Have you had your eye on one of LG’s 3D-ready Google TVs, but avoided pulling the trigger because of the price? If that’s the case, you should know that the 47 and 55-inch 3D Google TVs are marked down over 40% at Amazon.com. The 55-inch LG was originally $2300, but is now under $1400. The 47-inch was $1700, and is now only $999.
It is not clear how long these offers are going to last, so if the deal sounds appealing to you it may be best to order while the price is low. Hit up the links below to check out the deals.
LG’s Google TV 2.0 was set to hit shelves as early as this past weekend. LG, which will be offering their 3D LED TV model in both 47 and 55-inch sizes, with pricing set at $1600 and $2100 respectively, is postulated to be getting a jump on the competing sales of Apple TVs, which should be released later this year. While LG also has its own smart TV software called “Netcast”, only the version carrying Google TV software will be making an appearance this week, and LG will likely cling to the combined market power of Google TV as the threat of Apple TV approaches. Will brand banding be enough to push Google TV past Apple TV? Stay tuned, we may know soon.

It looks like LG is stepping in where Logitech has bowed out: LG is preparing it’s first Google TV for launch at CES 2012 in January. The move is a follow up to when LG was in line to demonstrate Google TV products at CES 2010 before stopping production plans at Google’s request, a request that saved LG from the first round of Google TV disappointment. Back with a vengeance in version 2, Google TV is in need of new hardware partners since Logitech’s recent vow not to replace or further produce the Revue.
The specifics of the new LG Google TV are unclear at this time, as sources have only said that it will be a TV set with Google TV 2.0 integration. Hopefully LG will tread lightly, not making the same pricing and large-scale production mistakes as Sony and Logitech did in the first round. We will keep you posted as the LG Google TV devices hit shelves.
