I'm planning on buying a 3D TV with smart features. Is it be a good decision to buy one of the LG's LM series models?

I don't really know what you look for in TVs so I can't say if it's a good decision but it's definitely not a bad one. Lot of people like the magic remote on LG's smart TVs and their interface is very simple. Some of the basic apps include Netflix, Hulu Plus, Youtube, Facebook, and few more other social networking apps like Picasa and Twitter.
Each 3d tv top producers provides pretty much the same basic apps which are those apps pink mentioned above.
The aspects you should pay attention to before you buy a smart TV might be the simplicity of its UI and the convinience of its remote
I don't think I need to introduce how simple the LG UI is. It's an obvious answer from every tech site.
The LM series you talked about all come with a magic remote.(except 9600, 8600 has a 4-mode remote which has a build-in mic, others has a 3- mode one )
The user feedbacks when it firstly came out was mixed but I found out these days, most people are prone to be positive about it.
Smart tv apps
Though there are many applications manufacturers are introducing in their smart displays. I was reading smart TV reviews last week on Engadget, I found that LG had introduced a '3D world' smart 3d apps store to its 2012 LM series passive 3d models. Viewers can access to multiple 3d movies, games and other entertainment apps through this apps store.
LM7600 recommended model
Wonderful plan! Recently my friend bought the 47LM7600 last weekend I went to her home and both of us enjoyed 3d for around 3 hours along with fresh butter corns and some drinks.
I just love the PQ of her TV; sound quality was like beyond my expectations from any TV screen.
Smart magic motion remote control was working flawlessly, I was not able to inspect her whole TV but, still enjoyed couple of smart apps. Twitter and YouTube make me crazy its in-built Wi-Fi had a nice streaming coverage.
I would recommend this model to you else, there are couple of more models in this series you can have a look on them as well.
Basic smart TV apps.
Well, the smart TV applications are being implemented by manufacturers on a regular basis.
The one you mentioned has got some amazing applications. LG had introduced many smart apps in its 2012 TV few of them are VUDU, Netflix, CinemaNow, Napster, Facebook, Twitter, LG Cloud and 3D World.
seems to be a good idea ~
I have used LG mobile phone for 2 years , it still works well and no problems, I like the products of LG brand . when i shopping in supermarket , lots of LG TV are on sale, bis screen is really a feast for eyes, high definition picture and clear sound , so your decision seems to be a good idea~ thanks
LG Smart TV
Well, from what I've seen on mine, you have your basic Twitter and Facebook integrations and such as your most basic applications. But I'm sure that as LG's smart TV application store gets under way (I think it's relatively new), you'll be able to find almost anything.
All LG smart Tv's offer the basic applications. Facebook, twitter, napster, hulu plus (which was added last month), netflix, google maps, MLB, NBA, NHL etc. But after using the basic applications for about a month, I heard about how many more applications there are after I upgraded. I was hesitant at first because of the price. I talked it over with my family and decided to upgrade. Best decision I've ever made after purchasing a new tv. My children loved the games (educational, yet fun and simple to play) In the end, basic applications are great to use and all the essentials are there, but upgrading it has really added a lot of fun into our lives.
