LG 50UN80006LC : a middle range Direct LED television set

Presentation of the LG 50UN80006LC

The firm LG is deciding today to launch a new mid-range model with its 50UN80006LC.
This television is delivered with a  Ultra HD 4K resolution.  It could be said that this model gathers all the expected characteristics. Whether we consider its aesthetics or its size, the engineers of LG have developed a television admittedly a middle-range one, but a quality one anyway.
Why can we consider this 50UN80006LC as convincing in spite of its mid-range position ? This is what we are going to discover in this article.

50UN80006LC from LG – Design

Sober but in line with current trends. LG has asked its design office to make a product that tends towards the top range, but remains affordable.
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.
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 50UN80006LC is revealed.

50UN80006LC from LG – The screen

The LG has a correct and well-calibrated image quality, but you have to do with a limited native contrast that is suitable for daytime viewing; forget about home theater programs in the dark.
With this new 50UN80006LC LG, the company makes an assumed technological choice. The quality of the LED gives an excellent rendering. 
The LG television set displays a Ultra HD 4K resolution. Beyond its size, we are still in front of a beautiful quality screen.
Designed with a frequency of 50 Hz, LG has marked its work. The delay in the display of the previous models has been largely reduced. In game mode, the delay between the action performed on the controller and its repercussion on the screen is almost imperceptible. In cinema mode there is no impact on the viewing of the film
Note that with advanced technology, this TV gives you a Ultra HD 4K quality picture .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.

50UN80006LC from LG – The sound

The sound quality is correct but nothing more. The typical low-medium and mid-range sounds are far from what the competition offers. The sound of the 50UN80006LC still has the advantage of not being saturated. In any case, the installation as presented ex-factory is just sufficient for this television set
The television set is equipped with  two speakers and provides a sound power of 10 W.

Finally, if we have to summarize the sound of the 50UN80006LC LG, it is the word correct that comes out.
