LG 24MT49S-PZ : What is it worth?

24MT49S-PZ from LG – Presentation of this HD

A new model from LG. They have just decided to enrich their range with a cheaper television , the 24MT49S-PZ.
Let’s have a look at the size. It’s a 24 inches.
In spite of this size, the rendering and the picture result are good, without a doubt by means of the technology used .
Beside, this television is equipped with a HD resolution.  Its characteristics are basic, but as we said it already some of them could even be considered as mid-range.and so we are left facing an interesting television set.
If you are considering buying the LG 24MT49S-PZ, read on to see if it is really worth it.

The design of the LG 24MT49S-PZ

Cheap doesn’t mean ugly. This could be the rule that has been respected by the designers of LG.
Could do better. This could be the overall opinion about this television set. However, it is not necessary to criticize too much; remember the price at which it is offered for sale!
In the end, we’re on an entry-level product. Even if at this level, when it comes to design, we could simplify it by saying that it is cheap. Materials of poorer quality and ergonomics identical to what was done 5 years ago, make this LG 24MT49S-PZ a just acceptable television set.

24MT49S-PZ from LG – The screen

Even on an entry-level model, the display restitution on this LG works very well. The image is faithful and allows to benefit from a clear rendering, without distorting the original source.
With this new model, LG confirms one of its technological choices. The use of LEDs provides an excellent image. 
The LG television set displays a HD resolution. With a screen size of 24 inches, this 24MT49S-PZ is at the bottom of its range.At the same time, we are dealing with a nice display on the screen.
With a frequency of 50 Hz, this television sets itself below its competitors. The game mode is to be avoided, as well as the cinema mode, due to the delay that can occur in the image.
In addition, LG has decided to use its mastery of advanced technology on this device, which allows it to benefit from a high quality HD image resolution.
Thus, the LG 24MT49S-PZ allows you to have a device in another room (the kitchen for example), without too much affecting your budget.

24MT49S-PZ from LG – The sound

For those who are not too demanding in terms of quality or sound rendering, this model is interesting. Indeed, the audio system is a little short. Which is normal for this entry-level device.
For the sound part, the television set is equipped with two speakers for a sound power of 5 W.

The sound quality of this TV is in a word mediocre; you feel like you’re back in the past to the days of saturating speakers.

24MT49S-PZ from LG – Embedded intelligence

On the software side, the LG 24MT49S-PZ is equipped with the operating system webOS 3.5 installed; it allows you to explore a whole universe of entertainment.
This TV offers you the choice of connectivity: Whether through its Wifi function, or through the local network with other devices or computer devices (fixed or mobile computers, NAS synology for example), your TV 24MT49S-PZ is communicating.

The connection system of the LG 24MT49S-PZ

Due to its small number of connectors, it will penalize some users.
You will need to carefully choose the devices you want to connect to this 24MT49S-PZ. The reason? there are few choices in terms of available connectors.

It is with 8 possible connections that this 24MT49S-PZ is presented. The LG considers that with the24MT49S-PZ the consumer will have to make a precise choice because he won’t be able to connect many devices at the same time .

You have the following connections at your disposal:
1 USB port, 2 HDMI ports, 1 audio output, 1 audio input, 1 antenna input, 1 component plug (Video), 1 composite plug (Y/Pb/Pr)

24MT49S-PZ from LG – The conclusion

With the intention of making a difference this new 24MT49S-PZ LG intends to make a difference. Well thought out and well finished. This mid-range is a wise choice.
In addition, it is worth noting that this 24MT49S-PZ is equipped with smart TV technology. Thanks to this, you have a top-of-the-range device in its category, which makes it a relevant choice.
This model uses Direct LED technology for its display. The result is good: the lighting is uniform and the contrast is pleasant.
This TV has the correct resolution, nothing more. Producing and marketing TVs today in HD is often sufficient and well suited for ‘basic’ uses. But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time. It is therefore a temporary and/or occasional choice. You’ve been warned.

Finally, we will note all the positive points that are to be added to the credit of this television set. Here are 3 that I find interesting:
the sound power, the display frequency, the screen size.
