Tour & Design

**Front**

The LC-52XS1U-S is set in a metallic frame, attached to a long, thin speaker that runs horizontally. The on-TV controls and power LED are located on the bit that bridges the gap between the frame and the speaker.

The *LC-52XS1U-S's face is a bit plain.

**Sides**

The sides of the LC-52XS1U-S are an inch thick at its thinnest parts. Therefore, there isn't a lot of room to put features. This being said, on the right side, there's a small input area that accepts a USB cable and has a reset switch.

With a thickness of 1 inch at its

thinnest part, the LC-52XS1U-S is hard

to identify when turned to the side. 

**Stand/Mount**

The LC-52XS1U-S can be wall mounted or attached to a stand. 

 

Aesthetics

The LC-52XS1U-S is a great looking TV. It has a metallic frame, with the speaker below and parallel to the screen's bottom. It's an interesting design and one we definitely like. Not only does it have a unique look, but it's thin as well, and won't have many cords running away from it since the cords will all be located on a separate box.  looks a bit plain, at least from the front view. The glossy black plastic bezel makes it it look like any other understated TV. The large screen size coupled with a thin form factor does bump up the cool factor a bit, but overall, there isn't much to this TV that grabbed us.
