The remote control features are pretty straightforward, while the menu options are really easy to navigate. Even though this is not a new model from 2017, in fact, it is 5 years old; it can still compete with some of today’s new models. There are many things you’ll like about this TV, and its benefits definitely outweigh its deficiencies.
There are some black level and screen uniformity issues, but the TV excels in many other fields. Its primary strength is the color performance, which is pretty smooth and even. Also, it has a pretty wide viewing angle as well as great screen size (55 inches) meaning the LG 55LE5400 is a great choice for wider rooms.
Design – Good Looking TV with a Sturdy Base
Being a 55-incher, the front of the TV is mostly screen. You might find it a bit annoying that the frame around the screen is pretty reflective so you’ll probably see ambient light gleaming from the frame. Along the bottom of the screen is a series of indicator lights and onboard controls.
All the ports on this TV are located on the back. Some face the side, and some face out of the TV. This model is really thin meaning there is no room for controls or ports on the side. The stand feels quite sturdy and is pretty heavy. The same shiny plastic that covers the bezel covers the stand as well, but there is a metal core.
There is a metal yolk when you attach it to the panel. That shinier, darker plastic on the back of the LG 55LE5400 is just covering hiding the metal. Despite its size, this TV panel can swivel on the base. The controls along the TV’s bottom are not push-able, hard buttons, but nice, touch-sensitive areas. However, the slightest touch will leave fingerprints on the shiny plastic, so you’ll probably wish to stick with the remote. Speaking of remote control that comes with this TV, it is fairly good.
It is light and thin, with comfortable buttons. Overall, considering the TV is 5 years old, people can still appreciate its thin frame and giant screen.
