Ordered 50la6970, but the tv does not match the description

Wanted to know if anyone had any experience with this? The bezel is about a 1/2" thick as opposed to 1mm or whatever it's supposed to be, and the base is different than the one they advertise. The base is the one featured on the 50la6900. Did I get the wrong tv? The company i ordered from is trying to give me the run around. Any help would be appreciated. Im pretty sure I received the 50la6900 that is featured on lg.com, not the 50la6970.

Answer: 
The LA6900 and the LA6970 are the same set with different cases. The 6970 is sold at Costco and Sam's Club so the case was changed to the glossier black design that I actually prefer to the slimmer metallic case. The service manuals are the same for these two sets. The internal components are the same; LED Plus edge lighting, dual core processor, etc. The difference is price however is considerable. The LA6900 sells for hundreds more because Costco was able to negotiate a better price by selling a slightly different looking model. If style is everything to you then choose the one that looks the best. I choose the LA6970 both for its looks and its low price.

Answer: 
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this television purchase. It is recommended to check the MODEL/SERIAL label, which is located on the back of the TV itself. This will be the only way to determine for certain what model has been received. If the model is incorrect, then it will be recommended to check the sales receipt and packing forms from the dealer. If the wrong model was received, then this would be a matter to take up with the dealer.

I am considering an LG Model NB3532A soundbar but it has only two optical cable inputs. This model TV does not have an optical output. So how do you connect the two. Duh, the soundbar is also LG. The manufacturer seems to have missed the boat!

I will be mounting the TV over a fireplace

The viewing angle will be slightly off to the left and at a 10 foot distance will that diminish the picture quality?

Answers

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this television. The description you have given seems to be a good location, as long as the TV is a safe distance from the fireplace. The only setback would be that the viewing distance may be too close. The optimum viewing distance, for any 50” TV, is about 12 1/2 feet. The proper operating temperature for this television must remain between 32 and 104 degrees Fahrenheit. It is important not to allow this unit to operate outside of this range, as it would cause damage to the product.
