LG CS560 TV is cheap but meh
I'm Ty Pendlebury and this is a review of the LG CS560.
While LG has had some stunning TV designs this year, the company has largely been unable to compete on performance or price.
The same trend continues with the CS560, only without the stunning design bid.
The LG CS560 is a budget LCD TV and while it is serviceable looking, this blue accent at the bottom is a little bit weird.
remote control that comes in the box is compact and fairly good though.
The TV doesn't really have any features and it ships with a bare minimum of ports including 2 HDMI and 1 USB for media playback.
While in the past, you couldn't expect too much from budget TVs, brands like Toshiba, Vizio and TCL have shown you can get a really good TV for under 500 bucks.
But a good TV, this LG is not.
It has 2 main problems.
For while color is very good, black levels are pretty terrible for TV even this
And the backlight intrudes on black scenes causing big gray clumps.
If you are looking to spend very little on a TV, might I suggest looking at the TCL L40FHDP60 instead.
