Design

This TV has an outstanding design. It has a stand that supports the television well but makes a bit of tilting if you mistakenly push the television. The stand is nearly as wide as the television. The build quality is decent and you shouldn’t have any issues with this tv.

The borders are narrow and are not distracting in any way. The LG SM9000 has an average thickness and can sag slightly as you wall-mount it.

The overall design for this TV feels premium.
