Power cord is too short so can’t even turn it on...
After all the effort of wall mounting the tv and install the cable management it came time to turn on the tv which was a gift for my son and the power cord is barely 1 meter long. This doesn’t get from the cabinet to a power board so I can’t tell you anything about the rest of the tv at all.
I was intending to buy the Samsung equivalent but good guys didn’t have the 55 inch in that model so they price matched for the LG. After contacting LG customer service I wish I just kept driving to JB and stuck with the Samsung however I was also concer...ned about remote interference with another Samsung tv not far away in a lounge area. LG customer service offered no real assistance aside from to point out it’s not faulty and that’s how it was designed. My problem is, if they are so cheap that they need to save a few cents on a proper sized cable, how crap will the rest of the tv be?? Very disappointed in LG. Should have stayed with Samsung... I will edit my review if I ever manage to get it turned on.

Difficult not to find anything wrong with this 75 inch TV, as every function and setting on the remote seems fast and accurate after playing around with the TV settings when playing 4K bluray movie for example, while Panasonic 4K player HDMI setting is on RGB standard, TV settings are maximum for backlight, contrast and colour on cinema user mode for incredible cinema film quality picture and sound. Black bars above and below the movie can be removed by the TV's vertical zoom setting.
Super UHD is definitely better than standard UHD and I am g...

Good colors but black bleeding is an issue
Its a good TV if you are watching bright pictures. When the dark (Night scenes/darker indoor scenes) needs displaying, TV fails miserably. For a ~ $2000 TV, I think it is unacceptable. Black bleeding is an issue when you try to enjoy a movie. All dark areas are covered with white lighting it is painful to watch.
On a positive note, colors are vibrant and its has a nice display. OS is very good and easy to use. Dolby ATMOS and Dolby Vision works a treat ! If you are looking for a media room TV, then I suggest to look elsewhere as the darker th...e room, worst the darker scenes look. I have contacted LG to investigate the issue and it is under review at the moment. I will post an update when I hear back from them. The tech came to look at the TV agreed it is an issue. Updated on the 06/01/2020 According to LG, the TV is within the manufactures standards. This confirms my worst fears of poor quality of the TV. Please refer to the pictures and make your own judgement. IF that is acceptable,I wont be touching another LG product with a 10m pole. Poor customer service and even poorer quality products according to LG standards. Please dont wast your money, if you want a TV buy a Sony or similar quality TV. My 7 year old Sony TV and the new TLC 4K TVs I have at home dont have any of these issues.. I am extremely disappointed with the outcome.. Final Update 02/03/2020

Great tv for bright living room.
Happy with tv, bought for a bargain price of $1095 in the eBay 20% off sale. Bright picture, good content and webos very easy to use. I use it in a bright living room so picture is great. As it's an IPS panel at night time the blacks aren't super black but it's great for my needs. Limited apps in the lg app store for Australia. Missing Optus sports , kayo etc... Have used a Chromecast to get around this but would prefer more native apps. Sound is loud, rarely have the tv above 25 don't need a soundbar with this tv unless your want to fully utilise the Dolby Atmos features.
Netflix 4k and YouTube apps all work great. Even the standard fta channels are reasonable, the fta HD channels look great too.

Such a big tv!!
The TV is so large and great! It has amazing sound and picture quality. Now having Netflix and Stan, it is so easy to watch. It was also very easy to mount on the wall.

Questions & Answers
I was thinking of buying the 75 inch Ultra HD TV but saw a very poor review where the buyer experienced poor blacks with white streaks , ghosting (?) which forded them to get a refund from JBHiFi. But other reviews seemed OK ?. So can you comment please. Thanks, Steve
Similar issues with my 55” although it doesn’t bother as much as it’s in my sons room. I’d get the Samsung equivalent if purchasing again.
Which Samsung model would you recommend ?. I’ve done so much on-line research given the amount of cash needs to pay out nowadays I’m becoming a tad confused !
I want to play movies from a usb stick. Can you pls advise:
Usb 2 or 3?
Max size for Usb stick?
Usb stick format Fat32? Or NTFS?
Type of video file? Mp4 or avi or ?
I can’t find any info in the manual.
Sorry Keith, I have not tried to play movies from a USB. Unfortunately the TV is mounted on the wall so I can not even test it. As an alternative, if you have a Bluray player plugged in, try doing it via that. That's the only thing I can think of. Hope it helps
Don't use USB to play movies. Still got old Panasonic 3D bluray player to record movies on TV channels. Also play 4k/ bluray movies on Panasonic 4K player. Or play movies bought from Google movies and TV shows using inbuilt app on LG TV.
