The design of the LG 65SM8500PLA

A very elaborate design and quality technical elements, make this LG 65SM8500PLA a top-of-the-range TV set.
The design of the LG 65SM8500PLA is largely inspired by the other models in the SM850 series.
A positive opinion overall. This TV corresponds to what is expected of a top-of-the-range TV, both in terms of materials and visuals.
This new LG 65SM8500PLA is quite standard, flat.
With an interesting size of 65 inches, Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support. Indeed it has a double base, in which we have a division where each part of the base has its place. With this, the TV is exactly the same on both sides, thus creating a very symmetrical and stylish TV that can be enjoyed in any room.
A noteworthy innovation for this model is the use of the Slim design technology.
LG signs a screen with an extraordinary design. It offers a sober presentation, however, but with materials that enhance the feeling of quality. It is top-of-the-range while its price remains reasonable.
