This LG UH7700 has superior build quality compared to the Samsung QLED line up. Don’t believe me? Simply go to the store and touch the screen. The Samsung TVs flex easily with the slightest touch and emit that bright spot that tells you that you shouldn’t be touching it like that. Now touch the LG panel and it feels solid, thick and substantial. This will not affect how your content is displayed, but it’s comforting to know the TV wasn’t slapped together with the cheapest materials and construction methods. Plus, it just *feels* better.
Now when it comes to getting a good picture, this TV looks terrible out-of-the-box. In my opinion, every TV does. To calibrate this TV, the first thing you want to do is turn OFF every picture enhancement feature available. That includes: Energy Savings, Dynamic Contrast, Dynamic Color, Preferred Color, Super Resolution, Noise Reduction, MPEG Noise Reduction, Motion Eye Care, LED Local Dimming, and TruMotion. If there is an option that cannot be turned off, set it to “low”.
Why turn off all these options? Because there is no such thing as an image enhancement without some side effects. For example, Dynamic Contrast/Color will make your sky look more blue, but diminishes the details of the clouds. Noise Reduction will remove some noise at the cost of a muddier picture. TruMotion makes the frame-rate buttery smooth – just like a Soap Opera! Once all these settings are off, it’s time to dial in your colors.
On my particular unit (and yours may very), I found these settings to be most effective in maintaining a balanced picture:
Color Temp. W14
Other than that, the only Picture enhancement I turned on was Super Resolution. I set that to “low”. Nearly every issue mentioned in the negative reviews are addressed when using these settings as a starting point.
Now if you’re anything like me, you’re probably wondering about Brightness and Contrast since this TV has less of it compared to the Samsung KS8000 and the LG OLED TVs. First off, let me share a little background about myself. I am a professional photographer who works on a professional 10-bit color accurate monitor that costs 300% more than this TV. One thing I need to stress is that “Contrast” is not the end-all measurement for picture quality. You can have the brightest whites and darkest blacks but none of that matters if the pieces in the middle suffer. The OLED TVs go deeper into the blacks, but also “crush” shadow detail. So there are details in the shadows that should be seen, but are not because they turn completely black. On the other hand, the Samsung QLED TVs are capable of going MUCH brighter than the LGs. This looks nice in a big bright store like Best Buy, but I prefer not to have my eyes assaulted when I’m watching a movie at night. So consider your viewing conditions when comparing brightness specifications. I also find the Samsung TVs (and phones) to be over-saturated by their default settings. If you are wary about the contrast ratio of this panel, think about the last time you were in a movie theater and ask yourself if the blacks were not black enough or the highlights not bright enough. If the picture in the movie theaters was acceptable to you, this TV will not let you down.
The LG uses an IPS panel which is the reason it has a lower contrast ratio than the competing Samsung (VA Panel). The upside LG's IPS panel is a wider viewing angle. This feature was a big influence on my decision to go with the LG UH7700 since my livingroom consist of an L-shaped couch.
LG supports HDR10 and DOLBY VISION. Content creators who master their films in Dolby Vision are held to a much higher standard than those who master for HDR10. Fortunately, Netflix and Amazon offer both, but will prefer Dolby Vision when it is available.
This is one of the big reasons I picked the LG over the Vizio M65. This panel is slightly narrower thanks to thinner bezels. So it fit perfectly in place with no room to spare. The back of the unit is also slim and clean. The Vizio is clunkier which is a trade off due to full-array LED backlighting. Vizio offers a great Tv but lacks style. Beauty is subjective, but you really shouldn't buy an ugly TV just like you wouldnt buy an ugly couch.
I never intend to use the SMART features, but I went ahead and set it up anyway. I was actually shocked at how fast and fluid the Operating System is. The User Interface is fluid, responsive and easy to navigate.
Like all other flat panel TVs, the built-in speakers are a joke. At the bare minimum, get a sound bar or a home-theater-in-a-box solution. But a picture this nice deserves a true surround sound solution to complete the experience.
Due to edge lighting (the technology that allows the TV to be so slim) there is some unevenness in the backlighting. This is most apparant on pure white screens. None of my 5 housemates notice it on this panel. They also did not notice it on my previous TV which was much much worse in every circumstance. Chances are, you won’t see a different unless you have an eye for it.
The TV remote has a pointer thing that works much like a Nintendo Wii controller. I don’t think it adds any value to the experience and I personally prefer to use the “arrow” buttons to navigate.
The stand feels a little bit wobbly when you are trying to move things around. It also does not swivel.
in a nutshell, this TV offers:
- a competitively priced TV
- exceed build quailty and materials of competitors
- does not serve you advertisements (Unlike Samsung!)
- wider viewing angle than comparable TVs
- Slick and responsive Smart TV operating system
- HDR10 and Dolby Vision compatibility
- Beautiful hardware design
I've always had smaller TVs, waiting for the latest technology to get cheap, and join the pack late in adoption. This time I decided to really treat myself, and get (some of) the latest technology with a beefy size.
Criteria: 4K display > 60" for use with media sticks (Chromecast, Amazon Fire, etc)
- Read lots of complaints about "truemotion", "motionview" etc that caused the image to look jump. Some TVs let you disable this, others dont. (the technology is suppose to make live action "sharp")
- Overall image quality. Used mostly for movies, I want strong colors and deep blacks.
- Decent price. I've never spent more than $400 for a TV, so $2000 tvs were out of the question. That rules out OLED screens at this time.
- Reputable brand with track record of service.
- If smart features are present, how up to date and user friendly?
I relied on consumer reports, pcmags, and the like as well as user reviews on sites like amazon. LG had consistent showings in most all "Top TVS of XXX" comparisons, and usually led or placed in rankings.
I was at first comparing the lower models (6150, 5500), but the 7700 seemed to have all of the important quality features, stopping short of 3D and other high end addons.
Sony had some very nice models at the 60/65" size, but were usually a few hundred more for comparable features.I have a fridge from samsung and love it, i love that fridge. I think that fact and their competitive pricing did give me a very hard choice to make.
EVen though I have a firestick and chromecast I decided to test the smart features today and was impressed. The experience was nearly identical to hulu/netflix on my phone and firestick. The apps also each required an updated, which is good, it shows the vendor is actively adding love to the app for this TV platform.
Picture is crazy sharp and clear, it sometimes feel like it kills "the magic" in cinema, its just too real, like your watching some friends trying to act in your living room... I don't know hard to describe.
Anyway, love this TV, and have been more pleased with my choice as I use it. Early in my ownership, but I will update if anything goes sour! (no news is good news!)
Top reviews from other countries
As available technical reviews explain, the difference between FHD and 4k is only visible if you are watching from close up. Usually looks great in the store when your are 3 ft from the screen, at home from 15 ft no difference. I'm watching a 65 inch TV from 6 ft and flipping back and forth between the regular HD channel and 4k there is a difference.
One reason I chose this is because of the IPS display which tends to be better when viewed from an angle, not straight on. If several people are viewing close up "home theatre" style, the ones at each side are going to be viewing from an angle. It does look better ( full brightness etc.) from the side compared to my older TVs.
I got this on a deal and love it mainly for the slim casing but as you can see the picture specs are great for a somewhat older model.
While I'm here, I had yet an older LG model and had to claim warranty on it, which was a 6 week ordeal with LG warranty department. I had to buy this in the interim.
