What about the new LG 32LM560BPTC ?
LG is now an important television manufacturer, and proposes this basic model 32LM560BPTC, a possible choice tested by our Laboratory.
A quick glimpse at the specification sheet : 32 inches.
In spite of this size, the rendering and the picture result are good, without a doubt by means of the technology used .
In addition this LG displays 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.
Is it worth buying it ? This is the question we are going to answer.
The design of the LG 32LM560BPTC
The first thing we always do is to analyze the design since it is the first thing that is obvious and also because it is important.
The design of the LG 32LM560BPTC is largely inspired by the other models in the LM500 series.
Who said that entry-level products could not benefit from quality design? That’s the thought we can face each other with this TV set. That nothing is impossible for LG.
The 32LM560BPTC is rather flat.
With its screen surface of 32 inches, it has a typical piano black color.
As far as the base is concerned, there are also things to say. 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.In short, the LG does the right thing on this model. An entry-level TV for which we would have liked more design work. With this LG 32LM560BPTC, no frills. Basic and that’s almost all. It could even be one of those TV sets you turn on to listen to the news; like a radio.
32LM560BPTC 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 32LM560BPTC LG, the company makes an assumed technological choice. It’s LED and that’s good because the image result is excellent.
This model has a HD display. In addition, with a screen of 32 inches, the 32LM560BPTC belongs to the series of small models in its range.In the end, it is interesting to note that beyond the size, the screen is well made. A point to add when choosing between this model and other competitors.
By providing it with a frequency of 60 Hz, this television is therefore less well placed than its competitors. Shifted image and lack of precision make this model a low end of the range.
Finally, LG has chosen to put advanced technology on this TV, which makes it possible to have an HD image quality .
In conclusion on the display, with the 32LM560BPTC LG helps you to choose a low-end TV set, which will be perfectly at home in your kitchen.
32LM560BPTC from LG – The sound
The speakers are of average quality and, therefore, the result does not work miracles on this point. Voices, for TV shows, are well reproduced; but for movie or game mode, you may have saturation and distortion in the sound.
For the sound part, the television set is equipped with two loudspeakers and provides a sound power of 5 W.
In summary, the overall power is correct, but without magic. And for those who are always more demanding, adopt a few more speakers. The home cinema experience is yours with a sound that resonates right into your living room furniture.
In short, sound is not the characteristic that will make you buy the 32LM560BPTC LG. Low quality; enough choice to listen to the news or let children watch their educational programs.
