$1199 | LG 75 inch 4K TV (Model: 75UK6190) HOTT??

Saw this on the front page of the Best Buy boxing day flyer.

Apparently $2399, but now down to $1199.

Anyone have any input on this model? Thinking of setting it up in my main living area as the main tv. The only difference with this and the previous 60" it'll replace is this has a refresh rate of 60hz, whereas I now have 120hz supposedly, but I don't think it's true refresh rate, and more so software, so I won't notice much?

This is the rating for the higher end version (not good), I think the M65 or M70 (which is more money) are far better options but if you want a cheap big TV maybe it will fit the bill.

So let's get serious for one moment, here are the minimum acceptable panels from three makers:

LG UK6300
Samsung NU7100
Vizio E Series F01 (2018)

Make no mistake, going below this threshold is only advisable if the TV is used for guest bedrooms, geriatrics, or rough-and-tumble tweens.

God bless.

It seems all these cheaper LG's use a RGBW style panel, which generally gets less than stellar reviews. I saw a 65" version at London Drugs last week for $799, so price vs size its pretty cheap, but I guess if you're after better picture quality look elsewhere.

Isn't it $1199?

That's the price I see on the front page of the flyer here: Best Buy BD Flyer

I have personally been using that TV for more than 2 months (purchased at 1899$) and this is simply an amazing tv set for the value. I did a lot of shopping in that range and it was a great deal at the price point i paid. Did some calibration adjustments and picture is great.

I had a Christmas party with 14 friends over and everyone fell in love with the TV too. Honestly, you will not find a better tv for the price. Interesting to note too that the SmartTV interface works great, and i use it mostly for Netflix and Plex streaming + use the tv for PS4 gaming and really nothing negative to say.

@aasoror is the horse whisper of dumpster fire TVs. I believe he might have some good advice for calibrating this TV if you decide to jump on it.

I personally would go with the Vizio E-Series (brighter and better colors IMO) and a Nvidia Shield, but that's just me.

You did good. If you prefer to downgrade your panel for a slightly larger screen and limited warranty, have at her.

I agree for $1199 (Boxing day price at BB) this is a solid deal. Although this "Refresh Rate TM120 (Refresh Rate 60Hz)" found in the product description worries me.
I don't think it is native 120hz at all....
