our Verdict

The Element G Series has a great HD 4K picture with crisp images and vivid colors. It’s perfect for those new to Smart TVs or looking to add a second TV to a room. You’ll be happy with the picture quality for streaming apps and most games. Plus, you can use voice commands with Alexa or Google Assistant. But experienced TV buyers may be let down by the lack of local dimming, Bluetooth, lagging with live TV, and below-par sound quality. And no input button on the remote can be a hassle when you want to switch platforms.
