TV design presentation LG 49SM8600PLA
The LG 49SM8600PLA with its simple design is an interesting alternative for anyone who wants an elegant television set in the mid-range segment.
Innovation. This seems to be the key word given by LG to characterize the 49SM8600PLA.
The shapes are balanced and the overall rendering is beautiful to look at. A successful mid-range model.
The LG 49SM8600PLA is simply flat. With a size of 49 inches, it has a typical piano black color. As far as the base is concerned, there are also things to say.
Indeed it has a double base, in which we have a division where each part of the base has its place. With this, the TV is exactly the same on both sides, thus creating a very symmetrical and stylish TV that can be enjoyed in any room.In addition, its support is of the pedestal type.
The interest of the 49SM8600PLA is undoubtedly its technology Slim Metal Design.
This TV could simply be one of the best in terms of design for mid-range. It has nothing to envy from its competitors. Even when it’s off, you won’t get tired of looking at it; only happiness!
TV screen presentation LG 49SM8600PLA
The LG could hardly do better than this 49SM8600PLA with a Edge-LED screen.
LG remains anchored in its technological choices and decides to equip its new television set with it.
It’s Edge LED display and that’s too bad. Due to its age and new possibilities such as the led, you will feel like you are going back 10 years. The image is poor.
A sum of characteristics that places it among the best in its range.
This model has a Ultra HD 4K display.
It’s better than the others for a TV in its class. With a screen size of 49 inches, this 49SM8600PLA belongs to the series of large models in its range.
In the end, it is interesting to note that beyond the size, the screen is well made. A point to add when choosing between this model and other competitors.
Designed with a frequency of 120 Hz, this television is therefore less well placed than its competitors. Shifted image and lack of precision make this model a low end of the range.
Even better, thanks to its advanced technology, the screen of this television provides a Ultra HD 4K quality resolution.
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.
The sound of the LG 49SM8600PLA
A brief listening allows us to see that it does not work miracles. The sound is far from exceptional. That’s enough for TV shows, but not for home theater showings.
The equipment consists of two loudspeakers with 10 W at output.
Basically, the final rendering is fine.
However, we will recommend to add speakers that will allow a better experience.
The sound quality of this TV is average. Don’t push the volume too hard, you’d be disappointed.
