LG’s LM7600 LED CINEMA 3D Smart TV
From a design perspective, the LM7600 features LG’s new Cinema Screen design which is a nearly frameless look, giving it a streamlined, modern feel, while also providing a more immersive viewing experience. But that’s not all; the fact that it’s an LED TV means it produces better overall picture quality. The TV also offers a TruMotion 120Hz refresh speed, meaning there’s virtually no motion blur with fast-action content, and its CINEMA 3D technology provides a comfortable 3D effect and theater-like experience using light-weight, comfortable glasses (six pair in the box). In addition, LG’s Smart TV offers access to online content like Netflix, Hulu Plus and more, as well as Internet browser and loads of content sharing options. All is available via built-in Wi-Fi. The LG LM7600 LED CINEMA 3D Smart TV comes with a gesture-based Magic Remote which acts as an air-mouse with scroll wheel for easier navigation.

KIDDE Worry Free Smoke Alarms
Kidde Worry Free Smoke Alarms offer the millions of Americans who rely on battery-powered smoke and fire detection 10 years of continuous protection – without those annoying 2 am low battery chirps. The only chirp you’ll hear from the Worry Free alarm is at the end of the alarm’s life when it’s time to replace the entire unit.
There are four models of Kidde Worry Free smoke alarms – each alarm is designed to address location-specific needs. For example, the Kitchen Alarm includes Intelligent sensing technology to minimize nuisance alarms caused by cooking. The alarms are powered by a sealed-in, long-life lithium battery for 10 years. The entire Worry Free line is maintenance free – you never have to replace a battery during the alarm’s 10 year operating life – which saves you up to $40 in batteries over the life of the alarm. The Kidde Worry Free Smoke Alarms are exclusively available at The Home Depot. ($25 to $49; www.WorryFreeAlarm.com )
