What is the new LG 43UM7000PLA worth ?

LG is now an important television manufacturer, and proposes this basic model 43UM7000PLA, a possible choice tested by our Laboratory.
First of all, regarding the size of the screen, we are facing a 43 inches.
It is clearly among the other rivals models. No more no less.
Regarding technology, we are facing a model with a Ultra HD 4K resolution.  Even if the product belongs to an entry-level group , the result is serious.
So when you make your choice, you will ask yourself the question : is the 43UM7000PLA a good bargain ? You will be told in this article.

43UM7000PLA from LG – Design

Cheap doesn’t mean ugly. This could be the rule that has been respected by the designers of LG.
No revolution concerning the aesthetics of this 43UM7000PLA. We are in line with market standards. At least we know what we’re buying: a television set.
Could do better. This could be the overall opinion about this television set. However, it is not necessary to criticize too much; remember the price at which it is offered for sale!
The LG 43UM7000PLA is rather flat.
With an interesting size of 43 inches, it has a typical piano black color.
Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support. 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 short, the LG does the right thing on this model. An entry-level TV for which we would have liked more design work. With this LG 43UM7000PLA, no frills. Basic and that’s almost all. It could even be one of those TV sets you turn on to listen to the news; like a radio.

The screen of the LG 43UM7000PLA

This LG is trying to stand out from the crowd with a LED screen.
With this new 43UM7000PLA LG, the company makes an assumed technological choice. 
The LG television set displays a Ultra HD 4K resolution. It’s better than the others for a TV in its class.
With a screen size of 43 inches, this 43UM7000PLA meets the expectations of 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 100 Hz, the fluidity of the images displayed on the television set is not exceptional. In some cases there may even be image shift problems. This also explains why it is placed in the entry-level of its range at LG.
In addition, LG has decided to use its mastery of advanced technology on this device, which allows it to benefit from a high quality Ultra HD 4K image resolution.
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s cheap; with the price that goes with it.

43UM7000PLA from LG – The sound

For those who are not too demanding in terms of quality or sound rendering, this model is interesting. Indeed, the audio system is a little short. Which is normal for this entry-level device.
The equipment consists of  two loudspeakers and provides a sound power of 5 W.
In any case, you have at your disposal a rendering below what you will find in the other models. Maybe if you want to or if you are a perfectionist, you can connect two other speakers with a bass boost to amplify the result.

The sound of this TV is in a word immersive, and you feel like being in a small movie theater.

The sound quality of this TV is in a word mediocre; you feel like you’re back in the past to the days of saturating speakers.

Its connectivity is decent for a basic range. You’ll have little choice.
