Tour & Design

**Front**

The LG 60PS80 doesn't look much different than its LCD counterparts—it has the same smooth, black frame found on the LHX series, the 55LH90, and the rest of LG's 2009 HDTV lineup.

**Back**

Ports are located on the back of the 60PS80, as is the power input. The rest of the back is made up of a variety of screws, fasteners, and metal panels.

**Sides**

The left side of the 60PS80 has a little collection of ports—one Component Video and audio input, one HDMI input, and a USB port. The right side of the television contains the on-TV controls.

**Stand/Mount**

The stand on the 60PS80 looks good. It has a long arc on the front side and a straight, smooth back. It felt sturdy and it swiveled easily when we moved the TV around a bit.

The stand on the 60PS80 is shiny, sturdy, and swivels with ease.

**Aesthetics**

The 60PS80 has a very appealing aesthetic. Its 60-inch screen looks sharp surrounded by the glossy black frame, and the flat, rounded TV stand is stylish, sturdy and well-proportioned. For a 60-inch screen, the 60PS80 is also quite thin on the sides. It can't match the ultra-slim, 0.98-inch depth of LG's 55LHX LCD TV, but it still offers a fairly slender panel.
