    "When you test as many new TVs as we do, you always get a bit excited when something new and different comes in through the door. That was the case when we finally got our hands on two much-awaited new LCD TVs: a new Google TV from LG, and Vizio's extra-wide 21:9 set. And in general, we liked what we saw.


    These new models are included in our latest TV Ratings. We previewed both of LG's G2-series Google TV and the Vizio CinemaWide TV earlier, and we've now completed full testing on both-picture quality, sound quality, ease of use, and so on. While neither TV was without its flaws, in general both performed well, with either very good or excellent high-definition picture quality and decent to very good 3D performance.


    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."

    Correct, nobody said the LG Google TV set is 21x9 and nobody said the 21x9 sets included Google TV.
