Soundstage: Limited stereo separation due to speaker placement.

Dimensions 57
Style The design of the LG B9 is outstanding. Overall, it resembles the design of the 2018 LG B8, although this year's model feels a bit less premium.
Back & Borders: Wall Mount VESA 300x200 & Borders 0.35 inch
Thickness: Max Thickness 1.89 inch
Build Quality: mainly due to its plastic stand that allows more wobble and the plastic housing of the electronics that flexes easily.
Longevity: This is a more biological term referring to the length of life of an organism.
Stand: The stand of the B9 OLED is plastic and looks very similar to last year's B8 which, however, was made of metal.
Included Components: Basic user manual, Remote, Composite breakout adapter, Batteries, Power cable permanently attached to the TV (not shown)
