Consumer test and review of the compact 28 inch HD LED TV LG 28MT49DF

I will start today’s review straight to the conclusion – the LG 28MT49DF is a fine 28 inch TV, with build quality better than the average in this class and very good picture quality for the price. This conclusion is based on looks, performance and value for money. In the next few lines I will explain more about it.

Design and looks

LG 28MT49DF has a simple design, decided entirely in black plastic but not feeling cheap by any means. The TV stand is stable and does not look ridiculous like in some of the recent panels we’ve seen.

The frame is not very thin but does not look intrusive at all. Overall, the 28MT49DF looks simple and is solidly build which are two very important things for any budget LED TV.

Performance

LG 28MT49DF received some very good online reviews from customers in UK (that is where this TV is mostly sold). Its viewing angles are also pretty good. Here is a full list of its features and specifications that pleased consumers:

Price

LG 28MT49DF is sold in UK for around £180-200. In the rest of Europe you can find this TV priced at around 200 Euros.

Verdict

Like I started in the beginning of this review, the LG 28MT49DF is good looking and good performing small LED TV. I would recommend it for its very nice HD picture quality, good sound and for the solid build quality. The LG 28MT49DF is also quite reasonably priced.
