The bigger picture
Above all else, the LG manufacturers justifiably placed great emphasis on picture quality when they put together this sharp LG Electronics 49LF5500 49-Inch 1080p 60Hz LED TV model. Most TV show fans are already accustomed to the refined visual quality they’ve come to expect from major TV networks. What this LG model does well is simply enhance that quality experience. Picture quality is perfectly attuned for television shows and movies.
Color can be adjusted in accordance with personal preferences, but on the whole colors are clear and sharp. A standard picture setting does not mean that picture quality is dimmed. But picture setting is done with little or no effort anyway.
Unfortunately, the sound system is not of the finest quality. But to compensate, hearing impaired users will love this product. They can continue to rely on a very good picture with closed captioning.
Aesthetic design is also sharp. The TV frame is silver and sleek, and the center makes a welcome entry to the living room as a decorative effect.
Life’s still good
To repeat, manufacturers here have juxtaposed advanced technology with simplicity very well. It is all about creating a convenient ambience for the home entertainment customer. Setting up the center is easy for starters. And the added convenience here is that settings are never complicated and can be manually manipulated, even turned off when not needed.
Using lower settings also saves on power usage. Speaking of which, the application of LED technology is pleasingly becoming the new normal. Not only is the set a lot cheaper than its peers, but also users will be saving a lot of power.
Keeping things simple
Knowing what to look for and finding it at the same time does make things easier for the consumer. The no-frills approach adopted by LG is welcome. Not even gaming fanatics will be disappointed because up front they already know that this product deliberately has no smart functionalities. Here it becomes necessary to remind shoppers of LG’s mission. The target market is budget-conscious and no frills folks. Also, busy minds are not preoccupied with settings because this has been kept to a minimum.
