Overview

I was always a fan of LG televisions because of the impressive technologies that they introduced to televisions. Out of the four different television models released to the market by LG, I decided to spend my money on LG B6 Series because it is the cheapest product out of all. However, LG B6 Series does not lack any major features or specifications regardless of its affordable price tag.

The LG B6 Series has a decent design and I didn’t have any doubts before placing this television in the middle of my TV lobby. As per my view, the look of this television is brilliantly simple. It is quite impressive to see LG releasing a television with a unique and an innovative design to the market, which caters the aesthetic appeal of customers.

I really enjoyed the features and specifications that were delivered by LG B6 Series. In other words, I consider this as a feature packed television that can be purchased from the market. The ultra HD 4K panel has the ability to give life to the best quality images. It is paired with HDR in order to impress the customers. The Dolby Vision is quite good as well and I don’t have any major complaints about the features offered along with it. I really loved the smart features that came along with the television as well. The all new LG Web OS 3.0 is really good and it has specifically been designed to help the users to stay away from hassle while using the television.

Design

LG B6

As mentioned earlier, the design of LG B6 Series is innovative and unique. The clear stand, metallic finished back and thin screen have contributed towards the design of this television. Unlike LG E6, which is the counterpart of LG B6, users will not be able to see the built-in sound bar. The rear panel of this television has been provided with a metallic gray design, which is associated with VESA 300×200 compatibility. The borders of LG B6 Series are extremely thin and they are associated with a metallic edge as well.
