When it comes to television sets, I don’t ask for much. Just give me a crisp, clear picture, reasonably decent sound quality, and controls I can understand without remedial classes at Roxbury Community College.
So I’m reasonably happy with the 55-inch TV by LG Electronics that I’ve been testing recently. Perhaps I’d feel differently if I had to pay for the set, which carries a $3,600 base price, though you can find it elsewhere for a still steep $2,800. Still, for straight-up TV viewing, this big, brilliant set is as good as it gets.
