TV design presentation LG 55SM8500PLA

The LG 55SM8500PLA appears as a real masterstroke of the brand regarding both its interior and exterior design.
The design of the LG 55SM8500PLA is largely inspired by the other models in the SM850 series.
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 55SM8500PLA is quite standard, flat.
With an interesting size of 55 inches, 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.
A noteworthy innovation for this model is the use of the Slim design technology.
A mid-range television set that relies heavily on its design and the quality of its materials; arguments that LG has been promoting for some time now on these products. All this for a price that stays contained.

With this new 55SM8500PLA LG, the company makes an assumed technological choice. 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.

With regard to the display, the company proposes a Ultra HD 4K resolution. In addition, with a screen of 55 inches, the 55SM8500PLA belongs to the series of large models in 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.
By providing it with a frequency of 120 Hz, we’re looking at a high-end TV. Perfect image and exceptional synchronization in game or movie mode.

To conclude the display part, we could say that it is interesting and effective; it is a mid-range TV that is worth the detour.
