The piano end body is all plastic, similar to most 42-inch TVs out there. Additionally, the display screen has a matte end, a giant plus compared to among the overly reflective shiny screens provided by different distributors.
The again continues with the shiny end and the stand meeting is fairly straight ahead. You get the same old provision to connect a wall-mount. The wall-mount brackets are part of the package deal.
