Television set LG 28TK420S-PZ : new reference Direct LED ?

28TK420S-PZ from LG – Presentation of this Full HD

LG is now an important television manufacturer, and proposes this basic model 28TK420S-PZ, a possible choice tested by our Laboratory.
Let’s have a look at the size. It’s a 28 inches.
It is a small model. It will be more complicated for you to watch films or matches with all tour friends around.
Regarding technology, we are facing a model with a Full HD resolution.  From our point of view it is interesting. Given the price, this model appears as a good choice. Not too expensive but anyway it is made with elements which we think will withstand in the long run .
So when you make your choice, you will ask yourself the question : is the 28TK420S-PZ a good bargain ? You will be told in this article.

The design of the LG 28TK420S-PZ

The first thing we always do is to analyze the design since it is the first thing that is obvious and also because it is important.
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.
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!
This LG 28TK420S-PZ is simply flat.
With an interesting size of 28 inches, it has a typical piano black color.
As far as the base is concerned, there are also things to say. Equipped with a double base, LG has chosen security. The TV holds well, nothing moves thanks to this system. And whatever the price of the 28TK420S-PZ, we prefer this kind of solution that guarantees that the television will not fall out of its place.In the end, we’re on an entry-level product. Even if at this level, when it comes to design, we could simplify it by saying that it is cheap. Materials of poorer quality and ergonomics identical to what was done 5 years ago, make this LG 28TK420S-PZ a just acceptable television set.

28TK420S-PZ from LG – The screen

Even on an entry-level model, the display restitution on this LG works very well. The image is faithful and allows to benefit from a clear rendering, without distorting the original source.
With this new 28TK420S-PZ LG, the company makes an assumed technological choice. The use of LEDs provides an excellent image. It is one of the best devices in its range.

The LG television set displays a Full HD resolution. In addition, with a screen of 28 inches, the 28TK420S-PZ belongs to the series of small models in its range.Beyond its size, we are still in front of a beautiful quality screen.
With a frequency of 50 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 Full HD quality resolution.
To conclude the display part, we could say that it is average; but what more could be asked of a low-end device.

28TK420S-PZ from LG – The sound

In general, the sounds are well reproduced; but you have to forget about bass and low-midrange. It will be preferable to use an external system to enjoy better audio immersion.
In terms of sound equipment, the TV is equipped with two baffles with 5 W at output.
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 quality of this TV is in a word mediocre; you feel like you’re back in the past to the days of saturating speakers.

Presentation of the Smart TV part of the TV set LG 28TK420S-PZ

Unfortunately on this model there is no smart TV. However, it can be considered as good news; indeed, you should have paid more for this TV set for a use that some of you would not have had. For the others, all you have to do is buy a TV-Box.

28TK420S-PZ from LG – Its connectivity

LG has ignored the number of ports and inputs available for this model. Probably a choice related to its entry-level positioning.
With a number of connections below the average of its range, you will have to choose which appliance(s) in your home you need to connect to your TV.

This model has a total of 4 connections, not too bad. The LG 28TK420S-PZ is at the bottom of its range. Not great compared to its competitors.
In detail here are the available connections:
1 USB port, 1 HDMI port, 1 audio output, 1 audio input

To conclude on the LG 28TK420S-PZ

Finally, this new LG 28TK420S-PZ is the TV to buy if you are not very careful about the options, or if you are looking for an alternative to troubleshoot.
To say the least, it’s complicated for a manufacturer to offer a model without smartTV. There are some among the competition, and at the same price. By choosing this 28TK420S-PZ you know where you stand.
A Direct LED panel animates this television. The rendering is good, even very good.
In parallel, it will be necessary to add an important parameter: the price. You have here a television set whose price is very competitive compared to its competitors. In other words, including your final decision, you will have to take into account the fact that this is a television set that displays all your video sources correctly and allows you to have a very well defined image in all circumstances.

In short, many positive points that make this TV a very good product. The following 3 points should be remembered:
the screen size, the sound power, the depth of the colours.
