The display of this 70UN74006LA is handled with care. This will allow connoisseurs to enjoy a quality rendering in home theater mode. The colours are faithful and deep black.
LG remains anchored in its technological choices and decides to equip its new television set with it. The use of LEDs provides an excellent image. 
This model has a Ultra HD 4K display. Whatever the characteristics, it is still a beautiful screen. On this point, don’t worry.

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 in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.

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.
For the sound part, the television set is equipped with two speakers for a sound power of 10 W.

In conclusion, the sound of this TV will give you the majority of the sound spectrum. It’s average, but not of poor quality.
