TV design presentation LG 65SM8600PUA

The LG 65SM8600PUA with its simple design is an interesting alternative for anyone who wants an elegant television set in the mid-range segment.
No revolution concerning the aesthetics of this 65SM8600PUA. We are in line with market standards. At least we know what we’re buying: a television set.
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.
The 65SM8600PUA adopts a standard shape with a flat screen.
Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support. Indeed, it has a simple base, which fits perfectly into the decor, giving you a sense of unity and elegance.The shape of the base is of the arched type.
A noteworthy innovation for this model is the use of the Slim Metal 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 65SM8600PUA is revealed.

TV screen presentation LG 65SM8600PUA

The display of this 65SM8600PUA is handled with care. This will allow connoisseurs to enjoy a quality rendering in home theater mode. The colours are faithful and deep black.
With this new model, LG confirms one of its technological choices. 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.

This model has a Ultra HD 4K display. This resolution is clearly better than what is generally done.
In addition, with a screen of 65 inches, the 65SM8600PUA is at the top of its range. At the same time, we are dealing with a nice display on the screen.
With a frequency of 120 Hz, the television’s fluidity is at the top of its 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.

TV sound presentation LG 65SM8600PUA

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.
The equipment consists of  two baffles and a power output of 10 W.

In short, the sound is enough to cover your everyday needs. The 65SM8600PUA LG is not designed for home cinema. That’s not what we are expecting.
