The 32LJ573D LED TV is an ordinary TV with impressive Smart features. The TV has lots of apps and a web browser. Unfortunately, the picture quality is not very good. The remote has dedicated buttons for Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.
The picture quality is not good. Contrast ratio is low due to the IPS panel. The colours of the TV are insufficient due to which the picture looks washed out. The edges are darker and this is clearly visible while watching the TV. The screen is not very bright and thus reflections can cause problem while watching the TV in a bright room. There are no advance features as available in mid to high end models like local dimming, HDR etc. But the motion looks good and clear. Viewing angles are also perfect and the TV is good for a wide viewing room. The picture looks sharp and there is less blurriness visible despite of the fact that the TV is only HD Ready.
Peak 2% Window : 258.4 cd/m2
Peak 100% Window : 258.0 cd/m2
There is some improvement in peak brightness in the new models but still it is not sufficient for a good bright room performance. At this level, it is not sufficient to fight the glares visible on the TV screen and this makes the picture difficult to watch with reflections from the back creating distractions.
Max Colour Dev. (50% pattern) : 2.0
Avg Luminance Dev. (5% pattern) : 16.77%
The colour uniformity is good in the middle but it is bad on the corners. The edges and the corners are dark and this is very much visible while watching the TV.
Luminance uniformity is also good. The flashlighting and clouding visible in test picture in not much visible while watching the TV.
White Balance dE : 0.33
Color dE : 1.39
Gamma : 2.27
The picture mode is changed to ISF dark room. This has pretty much improved the picture quality. The TV has all the advance features to adjust the white balance and colours. Thus, the resultant picture is quite better than the original.

The LG LJ573D is a good budget Smart TV. Although the picture quality is not very good but the amount of features available on this TV are hard to beat and that too by a leading TV brand LG. There is better picture quality available in this price range but then the Smart features are not available. So, overall it is a good value for money TV.
The LG LJ616D is also a very good option with even better picture quality and a Magic Remote.
