When LG took their massive 55LX9500 back, I was devastated. It was almost like letting go of a good friend or family member. But soon after that we got a delivery from VU – another 55-inch LED TV, the LEDN55T28R LED TV. Now VU is supposed to be a luxury brand, so I was quite excited to see what this TV had to offer. Sure, it doesn’t have 3D like the 55LX9500, but I’ve never been too keen on donning a pair of uncomfortable glasses to watch something come out at me from the screen. I was hoping this TV would be a nice one to review. So what’s the deal with this TV?

Design and features
The box that the LEDN55T28R came in was huge; even bigger than the one the 55LX9500 came in. This TV is massive, and weighs quite a lot. It’s also a task and a half to set up, and it wouldn’t have been done without the help of my colleagues. One thing that struck me as odd was the size of the stand, as it is massive. One would think that a stand this size would at least support the TV properly, but it wobbled quite a bit even after it was securely fastened to the base.

The TV itself looks quite ordinary, although it is quite thin. It has a pretty thick border with a glossy black finish, so there’s no need to dust for fingerprints at this crime scene. Unlike most TVs, the power switch is located at the bottom right side of the TV, and when you turn it on, the feather touch menu buttons light up red.

As far as connectivity goes, the LEDN55T28R is quite sorted. It has everything you could ask for; well almost. Here’s what it has:

Lots of connectivity options

  • RF input for Cable TV :1
  • RCA AV input for Satellite TV or DVD Player :1
  • RCA component Video input for Video Games :1
  • RCA AV output for multiple LCD display :1

The USB ports playback JPEG, MPEG2, AVI and MP3 formats, but this TV can’t play MKV files; something I was hoping the LEDN55T28R would have.
