LG 43UN71003LA 4k Smart TV

LG 43UN71003LA - product price, features and specification

LG 43UN71003LA 4k Smart TV

Just couple of days before Black Friday 2020 we will take a closer look at another good value for money product - the 43-inch 4k Smart TV LG 43UN71003LA (related models: 43UN71003LB and 43UN71003LC).

This LG TV comes at a very good price and offers nice, clean design and nice set of features like HDR and Smart TV.

As usual we start the review with detailed product specifications:

From the specifications listed above we can confirm that the 43UN71003LA checks all the boxes in this price segment... 4k, Smart TV, HDR, 3x HDMI, Bluetooth.

One thing that we definitely didn't like when we checked this TV in the store is the thicker frame (compared to some Samsung alternatives like the UE43TU8072) and the stand which looked really cheap and somewhat not as stable.

LG 43UN71003LA - product price

Prices for LG 43UN71003LA vary around £250-300. We also saw some stores that are trying to sell the 43UN71003LA which is quite a lot for this TV and we would recommend you to skip these and research for cheaper. This is a mid-range 4k TV from LG, not their premium line after all. 

LG 43UN71003LA - our opinion
LG 43UN71003LA is a good mid-range and mid-sized LED TV which has some strong competition mostly from Samsung. Sony's offers in this segment are some 10% to 20% more expensive so we wouldn't consider them as direct competitors for the 43UN71003LA (43UN71003LB and 43UN71003LC).
