TV design presentation LG 60UM6900

The LG 60UM6900 with its simple design is an interesting alternative for anyone who wants an elegant television set in the mid-range segment.
No revolution concerning the aesthetics of this 60UM6900. We are in line with market standards. At least we know what we’re buying: a television set.
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.
This new LG 60UM6900 is simply flat.
With an interesting size of 65 inches, 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 60UM6900, we prefer this kind of solution that guarantees that the television will not fall out of its place.
A noteworthy innovation for this model is the use of the Slim design technology.
In short, the LG has really succeeded the design aspect of this TV, which does not go unnoticed no matter where it is installed. If when turned off it has such an effect, the sensations take on a whole new dimension when the screen of the LG 60UM6900 is revealed.

60UM6900 from LG – The screen

The LG could hardly do better than this 60UM6900 with a Edge-LED screen.
With this new 60UM6900 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.

This model has a Ultra HD 4K display. LG presents this 60UM6900 with a screen of 65 inches; this television is among the greatest. Whatever the characteristics, it is still a beautiful screen. On this point, don’t worry.
Designed with a frequency of 60 Hz, we’re looking at a high-end TV. Perfect image and exceptional synchronization in game or movie mode.
Even better, thanks to its advanced technology, the screen of this television provides a Ultra HD 4K quality 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.

The sound of the LG 60UM6900

A brief listening allows us to see that it does not work miracles. The sound is far from exceptional. That’s enough for TV shows, but not for home theater showings.
The equipment consists of  two loudspeakers and provides a sound power of 10 W.

The sound quality of this TV is average. Don’t push the volume too hard, you’d be disappointed.
