It is clearly among the other rivals models. No more no less.

TV design presentation LG 49SM8500PLA.AEUD

Sober but in line with current trends. LG has asked its design office to make a product that tends towards the top range, but remains affordable.
Nothing has changed in the design of this new model. LG continues to ride the wave of its design to which we are now accustomed.
A product that is correct in view of its price. A sleek but effective design. It has the potential to compete with other TV sets on the market.
This new LG 49SM8500PLA.AEUD is quite standard, flat.
With an interesting size of 49 inches, 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.
A noteworthy innovation for this model is the use of the Slim design technology.
In short, the LG has really succeeded the design aspect of this TV, which does not go unnoticed no matter where it is installed. If when turned off it has such an effect, the sensations take on a whole new dimension when the screen of the LG 49SM8500PLA.AEUD is revealed.

49SM8500PLA.AEUD from LG – The screen

The LG could hardly do better than this 49SM8500PLA.AEUD 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.

The LG 49SM8500PLA.AEUD is available in the Ultra HD 4K resolution. Which puts it among the above-average TVs in its range.
In addition, with a screen of 49 inches, the 49SM8500PLA.AEUD meets the expectations of its range.Beyond its size, we are still in front of a beautiful quality screen.
With a frequency of 120 Hz, the television’s fluidity is at the top of its range.
Note that with advanced technology, this TV gives you a Ultra HD 4K quality picture .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.

TV sound presentation LG 49SM8500PLA.AEUD

It is the custom to say that a good sound comes from a device with a lot of watts, however LG has managed to combine average audio system power with very good sound quality.
For the sound part, the television set is equipped with two loudspeakers and provides a sound power of 10 W.

In short, the sound is enough to cover your everyday needs. The 49SM8500PLA.AEUD LG is not designed for home cinema. That’s not what we are expecting.
