Amazing Picture, But..
Posted by: OldNAchy from: Fairfax, VA on
I was looking for a tv this size to replace my failing bedroom tv. I came into the store intending to buy the 43" Sony 4K Smart tv (XBR43X830C), but decided on this one after comparing the pictures side by side in the store and noticing this one had a slightly better looking picture while costing $200 less than the Sony.
I would have rated this a 5 except for the disappointing non-intuitive setup.
-- Good price.
-- Picture quality is outstanding -- when I finally figured how to calibrate it (more on that later). I was able to perform set up on this tv very near to my on the wall Samsung 4K Smart TV (UN60HU8550FXZA) and using similar calibration settings was able to duplicate the picture quality of the Samsung. Not bad considering the price difference ($600 vs $2400). The tv is receiving 2160P video input from my home theater receiver which upscales any signal to 4K. So my cable 1080I signal looks much better -- not quite true 4K but close -- definitely better than 1080P. The tv itself upscales to 4K but I did not test this because I really didn't need to.
-- There are a number of useful smart options -- Netflix, Hulu,Youtube, for example. Once I got familiar with navigation the functlons were easy to inititiate.
-- 4K native resolution is stunning. I tested this by selecting a test 4k resolution video on Youtube and was blown away.
-- The initial set up for this tv beyond language, location, and time is pretty bad.
-- For inputs, there is no clear choice for HDMI input. It appears that set up "pushes" one to the antenna input and digital channel set up. If one uses over the air broadcast, this is ok, but for those like me who use cable or satellite, then setting an HDMI (or even component) input is apparently not available in the initial set up. One can get an input list by pushing the "input" button on the remote to bring up a list or to push the Home button and scroll over to the HDMI symbol and select it, but these should not be necessary in initial set up.
-- Getting to picture settings is also not intuitive. Pushing the settings button brings up a vertical set of choices on the right side of the screen which includes Picture, but selecting that only allows for selecting one of the presets -- no way to adjust settings to calibrate to one's own preferences. However, if one selects All Settings at the bottom then selects Picture, individual picture settings become available. Believe me, I was almost ready to box up and return the tv when I found this. Glad I didn't.
-- The user guide -- both paper and online -- is very simplistic and almost useless.
The above is very disappointing for an LG tv. Earlier models of LG Smart tvs had and have a much more intuitive and easy to use set up process as well as a more useful user guide. It is as if the set up process took a major step backwards or even worse that one has to select a more expensive model to get a reasonably usable set up function.
Regardless, one should be able to overcome these shortcomings and setup and enjoy this tv at a very reasonable price and I do recommend it.

Great Price, Mediocre Screen
Posted by: SteveinOmaha from: on
I purchased this online. I have always owned Sony and Samsung TV's. The price on this was great, considering it's a 4K TV, so I am tempering my review a bit with that in mind. The reviews on this were quite good (I always read reviews), but I didn't check this out in the store to see how I liked the picture. I probably should have. 43" TV's are not easy to find anymore, and this one was the perfect size. I really wanted to like it.
Assembling this TV was easy, just two screws per leg and a Philips screwdriver required to attach the feet, but note this TV takes up a wide stance (28 or 30") and so ensure your table or stand is wide enough to accommodate it. Was very light, and easy to lift and carry.
The good is that this has a pretty responsive remote, good app interface, and you can connect to the net via ethernet (my choice) or wirelessly. I had no connection issues with my ethernet connection, and Amazon and Netflix both loaded and performed well, though I did have to install several updates upon first use. Sound quality is decent (I don't play any TV I have that loudly), and settings are reasonably easy to access.
The bad - I found the picture to be lacking sharpness and have a yellowish tinge to it. I played with the settings all day and just could not get it to my liking. I have a 40" Samsung and a 48" Sony, and both have excellent pictures with perfect color saturation and great blacks. I just couldn't replicate that on this TV, and the backlight and sharpness settings on the LG don't correspond to what they are on the Samsung, as an example. Motion is very noticeably fuzzy and the "Motion 120" just doesn't perform as well as I expected. I should note that my Samsung and Sony were similar in price to this one (all bought within the past year), though the Samsung and Sony are not 4K TV's - but they have much better pictures.

Beautiful display and sound quality!
Posted by: Logan from: on
I purchased this TV just recently and I love it! So far it has a beautiful display and amazing sound quality. There are a few negatives with the TV, but the positives outweigh them by a lot.
So I bought this TV because it was the best purchase around the $500 price range that I wanted. Of course I had to pay extra for the new HDMI cord and tax, but that was all worth it in order to run 4k quality (mainly upscaled). The best thing about upgrading to 4k TVs is that you get a much better brightness and contrast upgrade. For my TV, the more vivid colors are much more clear and it makes objects seem more realistic when you look at them. I've been watching the TV show, Lost, lately and the quality looks much better on a 4k TV.
The negatives: for one thing, this TV has a remote that doesn't light up at night. I know it sounds a little silly that I would complain about this, but mark my words, in the middle of the night there is no seeing the buttons on the remote. I usually wait till a bright scene on my Netflix TV show comes on and then look at the remote, but that gets annoying after awhile. Other complaints I have and hope to find a solution is the brightness issue with the color yellow and gold, and also the fact that WebOS doesn't have Spotify. For some reason the color yellow or gold doest not come up very well at all, so be wary that if you play games on this TV that the color yellow/gold will not come up clearly. I play Overwatch and I have seen that the Gold Medal that you can earn at the end of a match tends to look a little more orange than gold. It's a very bizarre glitch maybe, but be aware of that. And the Spotify issue is the thing that annoys me most. Why the heck doesn't WebOS have Spotify? I don't know, but I hope it gets fixed soon.
Overall this TV is fantastic and if you want to game on it then you'll be absolutely stunned. I play Overwatch and The Witcher 3 a lot and both games blow my mind away! I hope you enjoy this TV as much as me, and I will definitely give it a new review later on in case any problems occur. I just hope the TV has a long lifetime. I hope this helped!

On my 2nd return and another bad TV!
Posted by: Disgusted from: on
After working almost a week both TV's turn off and will not turn back on. Then they come back on after about 20 minutes. Thank goodness this is a free return period because I won't be bringing home another LG 43" smart TV.

This is a great TV. Much better choice than Vizio, Sharp or store brands. I think the 4K Sony and Samsung TVs are great choices as well, but Samsung does not offer a 43" UHD and 48" is too large for my bedroom. Sony has a 43", but I do not think the picture is any better and it costs $200 more. LG is a solid brand and this is a solid TV!

Great 4k TV
Posted by: Antonio from: on
I was in the market for a monitor for my computer. I came across this 4k TV
and I'm very impress with the purchase. If you want 4k at 60 fps make sure you have a gpu that has a hdmi 2.0 because you will get only 30 fps. Just make sure you do some research because the manual for the TV is not so great.

The TV is a bust.
Posted by: Choosy from: on
After trying twice I gave up and put my old TV back. The first TV worked great for 2 days then started turning on and off by itself. I called the Geek Squad (who were great) and they couldn't get it running without replacing something so I took my 1 week old TV back and got another one. Again going through the setup etc. The 2nd TV worked great for 3 days before the same thing happened. I didn't want to go for 3. It must have something to do with the upgrade after the installation because it was shortly after the upgrade that both TV's became weird and started turning on and off without me pushing a button. Plus, when the TV went off, I could not get it to come back on.

Looks great and works with Xbox One S HDR
Posted by: projectxmatt from: on
I bought this to use with the new HDR features on the xbox one s. I was told in store that it did not support HDR10 like the One S needed. Good thing I didn't take their word for it and took it home to try my self. Once I got home under settings -> general -> HDMI Ultra HD Deep Color enable this for your HDMI port and it works great the Xbox one s now reports full HDR support except for at 50hz which is fine. Great tv and great companion for the one s

I'm using this as a 4K computer monitor. The colors are pretty good, but not the best IPS i've seen by far. Suffers moderate to extreme black crush. It's a RGBW panel which means text isn't as clear as a RGB panel. It does have 4:4:4 though. Motion response is pretty good, and handles FPS with ease. It will power off after not detecting input after several minutes, which is good for a monitor. I wish it would power on though when it detected input.
