LG 49SM8200PLA review

Reviewed

This reasonably priced 49-inch LCD TV is part of LG's high-end NanoCell range, which means it has several extra picture quality improvements that more basic LG TVs don't get. But it also misses out on some features that pricier models have, such as Dolby Atmos sound processing. Does that mean the 49-inch 49SM8200PLA is not worth bothering with? Let's find out.
