    Not a bad TV overall, just some serious flaws

    Posted
    LordBern

    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.

    Great TV Unless you are sensitive to blooming

    Not much else to add that isn't said elsewhere. I bought this unit and enjoyed for a few days until I watched a few dark scenes with bright objects. As mentioned elsewhere, the very crude backlight local array dimming on this unit is quite poor at dealing with dark scenes. For one, dark background seems to always be gray rather than black. Bright objects in dark scenes bloomed terribly, even when settings were adjusted to help reduce this. For me this was a deal breaker. I returned the unit. If you don't notice or care about this, then this might be a good TV for you. Colors are vivid and the panel is bright with great viewing angles. The LG remote and user interface is the best in the business in my opinion.

    First off, I had the 65" model. Set it up and saw a really nice 4k picture, throw in the Dolby Vision and its a really, really nice picture. I was told this tv was a great alternative to an OLED as you could get. Unfortunately this wasn't true. It wasn't leaps and bounds better than my 55" Samsung 4k. In a dark room you could see halo effects from the curser or anything white in the screen. I thought it wouldn't be a big deal but it started to annoy me. Halo meaning in a dark room anything white on the screen seemed like it was glowing, that includes the remotes curser. This tv can do all forms of HDR(HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision). Long story short, I exchanged the tv for a 2017 LG OLED and paid the difference. OLED's, wether LG or Sony, are the best tv's on the market. If you're upgrading to your first 4k tv this tv is very good. But if you've had a nice 4k tv already this tv won't impress that much.

    Decent TV but falls short (Not as advertised)

    I had this tv for about a week. This tv is not a good buy for the price. Blacks are grey. Doesnt get bright enough. Dark scenes in movies are virtually unviewable. Football has bad motion blur. The OS and magic remote are outstanding but not worth it for the subpar viewing capabilities. Viewings angles weren't as good as advertised. I expected better side viewing from my wide room. I tweaked and retweaked and I just could not get the consistent performance and contrast that I was expecting. I returned it and bought a Sony X900F for a few hundred bucks more. Night and day. Everything I noted as wrong with the LG is corrected with the Sony. I would not recommend this LG TV at this price point. Get the Samsung Q6F for the same price or spend a bit more and get the Sony X900F.

    Complicated remote control . Too much to have to sit things up. not as good a picture as the Samsung 8000 I wished i had got it! The App Store is useless I'm used to Android Google Play. The sales guy said this was a better TV than the Samsung but I don't think so I should have stuck with my gut

    Tis LG was a replacement for another brand. Set-up and interface with other components was not as simple as the previous brand. I have a LG player as well but it doesn't interface well, odd you have to use the players remote to operate, LG TV remote will not control the player.. very odd to me. Second thought on this purchase.

    I didn't find the difference between LG's cheaper 4K UHD TV and this model in terms of resolution however, it's double the price you pay. I would either recommend to go for the cheaper model or the expensive OLED but not Super UHD. It's not worth the money you spend.

    Tv struggles to upgrade to 4k. If it is a standard picture it looks horrible, It halos as well. Like the software it is very good. I gave it too much of a chance, and if I could I would take it back.

    We liked the price, but the TV has less entertainment options.
