Aesthetics

The LC-52BD80U is an average-looking set. It has a glossy black frame, which is what most TVs have nowadays, and a gray plastic strip running along the bottom edge. The TV is pretty thin, which bumps its cool factor up a bit. Since thin TVs are quickly becoming the norm, we're not sure how quickly the novelty will wear off. Overall, however, the TV looks nice, it just doesn't look exceptional.
