We are faced to a rather large screen.

No revolution concerning the aesthetics of this 65SM8600PUA. We are in line with market standards. At least we know what we’re buying: a television set.
A good overall score for this TV; it corresponds to design in the spirit of the times. A quality of materials and a visual aspect that does not make you insensitive.
The 65SM8600PUA is rather flat.
As far as the base is concerned, there are also things to say. It is perfectly integrated with the screen and gives a general feeling of balance.In addition, its support is arc-shaped.
A noteworthy innovation for this model is the use of the Slim Metal Design technology.

The LG could hardly do better than this 65SM8600PUA with a Edge-LED screen.
LG remains anchored in its technological choices and decides to equip its new television set with it. Although of lower quality, an Edge LED Edge-LED is used for this TV.

With a screen size of 65 inches, this 65SM8600PUA is at the top of its range. At the same time, we are dealing with a nice display on the screen.

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.

It is the custom to say that a good sound comes from a device with a lot of watts, however LG has managed to combine average audio system power with very good sound quality.
