 LG 43UM7000PLA TV review
Is buying the LG 43UM7000PLA worth it in 2020?

LG 43UM7000PLA
is the first TV we will be taking a closer look in 2020. It is a new year and we are expecting a lot if new models and innovations not only from LG but from all TV manufacturers. But today we will start with more or less a basic television which is budget oriented and will suit most TV needs of the average consumer.

Product overview and main features
As highlighted above the LG 43UM7000PLA is a 43-inch 4k Smart LED TV that comes at a relatively cheap price.

The design is also quite basic, colored in black, made of what we would say is far from premium plastic. The frame is thin but could be a bit thinner for even more compact size (we don't expect frameless in this price range of course).

Picture Quality
 LG 43UM7000PLA is not a premium TV and therefore one shouldn't expect the highest quality 4k picture. What  the 43UM7000PLA offers is a very good picture quality and image processing with nice set of features offered on a very good price. 

Offered in UK for under 290 GBP the LG 43UM7000PLA looks like a good deal for a 43-inch 4k television. Having the built-in WiFi and quick setup for Netflix and YouTube in addition to the good picture quality confirm the good impressions.
