Great tv for bright living room.

published

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.

Overall happy.

Purchased in August 2019 at Ebay- videopro for $1,095.00.

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 had an issue with LG SM86000 65 inch. After months of efforts, got a refund. Please have a look at my review for details.
If you do not mind the black bleeding, other colors are very good.
I bought a Samsung QLED Q80 65 inch. It works very well. None of the issues like the LG.

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.

You can play from usb stick or usb drive upto 1Tb. BUT it needs to be formatted by TV first. Then copy files to it with windows. Some osx might mess up the formatting. mp4, mkv is best. avi is ok but is huge for 4k.
