    The tv is good there are a few Lil dislikes. One is the lighting is a little uneven in the corners. But the tv performs well especially when gaming!

    Great picture and lots of awesome features to play with. Beautiful colors! The best option to get close to the OLED quality. Would not recommend for a room with lots of light or windows because it does have a bad glare. If the lights are off though, it looks amazing! The 1st one had a white light coming from the top of the screen, but I called Best Buy and they were awesome about bringing out a new one and picking up the original.

    Blooming Off the Charts

    I have done extensive research for my next new TV to buy since my old LG 65UF6450 screen broke. I was stuck between Samsung Q6FN and This TV the LG SK9000 due to the price range matching for both tvs. I purchased This TV instead of the Samsung Q6FN since I decided to stick with the Brand I love thinking the TV will be better. I love the web OS as its hands down the best Operating System TV I ever have seen, and with the remote moving cursor it was so smooth it felt like a luxury remote. The Picture is great however The Blooming and Black Uniformity of this TV was hands down the worst I have ever seen and so distracting even with the Local diming set to off. I tried everything I could to get rid of the Awful Blooming. The Blooming was affecting everything from solid to multi-color in any picture that contained black. Felt like someone was flashing a light on on the object causing it to bloom. It's like LG did not even try on this tv and wanted you to go straight to OLED which is way out of my price range for a TV. I am unfortunate, and it has forced me to switch to exchange this TV with the Samsung Q6FN 65 inch.

    Initially I loved this TV when I set it up. Set up was easy. The interface was one of the best I've ever used. The first thing I watched was a basketball game, which looked good and motion was great. Something my tcl 6 series struggles with. Next I started wonder woman in Dolby vision just to see how the picture looked and I was pretty impressed. A little after that we had company over and they had requested bohemian rhapsody which was only in hdr 4k and not Dolby vision supported. So I selected the movie from the lg vudu app and sat back to watch it. A few minutes in I started to mk notice a black cloud on the left hand side that would appear and then shrink. Even in a super dark scene it would illuminate picture so hard in the center of the screen the light would bleed into the cinematic bars. After going through every picture setting and looking up calibrating tips I got nowhere. I'm not sure why this only occurred in hdr with all movies I tried, but since you cant choose the format the studio presents the movie in I'd have to say it wasn't worth my money to keep the t.v.. I'd say if this is an isolated incident I'd reccomend it based on the features that worked. If it's a common issue I'd say avoid it until there is a fix.

    Not a bad TV overall, just some serious flaws

    This TV was on my radar when I needed a new larger TV for my basement. I primarily use it for my Xbox One X but I also watch movies on it as well. I looked at the Samsung Q6F, Sony X900F, the Vizio P-Series, and this TV. I actually bought the P-Series 65" and loved the look, the picture, and everything about it. And it's great value for the money. But it broke after 2 weeks. I returned it not wanting to take the chance on a new one breaking outside the return period. I saw this was the same price as the Q6F but offered full-array backlighting, Atmos support, and a $200 gift card back as well. In the store it certainly looked nice. Not quite as vivid as the Samsung, but I thought I'd see. The one thing you notice first about this TV is the contrast. Or I should say lack there of... I'll say it. It's terrible. Blacks look gray in dark scenes, there is a LOT of flashlighting (halos around objects in dark scenes) and terrible banding where a whole side of the screen will light up in dark scenes because the auto-dimming is so terrible. I don't think there are many dimming zones on this TV. When loading menus with white letters and a black background on games, literally a third of the screen would be lit up beaming around the words. Even in dark scenes (playing State of Decay 2 at night in the game), the banding would seriously darken a third or more of the screen and it would be obvious it was trying to up the contrast (badly). I have no idea how a full-array backlight TV can be so bad at dimming and contrast. I tried other games and movies and honestly, the picture isn't the clearest either. The TV does get bright for HDR and the colors look good but once a shadow or dark scene come up, you definitely notice the low contrast. If you watch this TV in a bright room you might not notice it as much. But dark room viewing? Don't waste your money. I decided to get the Samsung Q6F and love it. Deep blacks, unbelievable colors, and smooth motion. The Sony is a little too expensive but looks sensational too. It's almost like LG wants you to take this TV back and say 'okay, give me the OLED instead' after seeing this TV's picture problems.
