[Costco] LG - 65UN7300 - Smart 4K UHD TV - $797.99

LG 65UN7300 is back in stock online at Costco for $797.99.

A great TV with all time low price at different retailers (Walmart, BestBuy, amazon,...) but I prefer Costco because of the warranty and the 90 days return policy.

it's even 10$ cheaper if you buy from a Costco location near you.

Rtings.com wasn't in love with this tv, with that said we are talking about a sub $800 65 inch TV so expectations need to be set. Though I feel like 6.8 is still somewhat low at this price point.
Yeah true, but not terrible either. I think the price is appropriate and proportional to size and value. Biggest drawback is lack of HDR10+ or Dolby Vision

I had the Samsung 65Tu8000 and returned to get this LG. IMO I find the LG has better picture quality and brightness.
The picture on the Samsun was dull and even the sound was not that clear as the LG TV.
Tried Netflix UHD on for me it looks like the LG is better.

Was at the local Costco with a couple friends, we looked down the aisle of TV's in the 65" row and then each of us agreed that the 4th TV in the row was the best (regardless of price etc) - it was this LG (based on actual picture quality/brightness/sharpness etc).

Don't forget members get 2% cash back at the end of the year for Costco. Only amounts to $16, but if you're weighing options with Visions/Amazon/Best Buy etc. it's a consideration on top of their return policy.

This tv looks pretty thick compared the the 8000 series Samsung which is around the same price, anyone who has this wall mounted: how thick does it look from the side?

Also: this TV or a TCL QLED 65 inch? (For best picture quality and overall quality)?

Thanks

I can talk about the thickness. I had the TU8000 and now I replaced it with this. It look good and you won't notice the difference.
The LG allows more space in the back to reach for ports or even place the apple TV behind it.

Only Executive members get that.

If you're talking about the newer 5 Series TCL, like the 65S535, the TCL has a better overall picture, including Local Dimming and Dolby Vision HDR10+ support, things the LG in the OP are missing

Yes and no. I would say overall PQ should still be the deciding factor when you purchase a TV. Having the new Xbox Series X, I am still waiting for solid 60FPS@4K, on AAA titles let alone 120. Maybe in the future

Agreed, the PQ should be the deciding factor, but usually the higher refresh rate and PQ go hand in hand, especially when you're looking for a TV around $500. Also, NEVER buy an Edge-Lit LED TV. Only buy Direct or Full Array LED TVs.

For me, a big deciding factor is the Smart TV platform. IMO, LG has the best ones with WebOS. It's easy to flip to the US region and get the US apps if you use a VPN or have a SmartDNS configured on your router.

Any other larger TV suggestions for someone who just got a PS5? Sub $1000 preferred

What tv has HDR10+ or Dolby Vision near that price point? Genuinely asking.

The TCl I have mentioned in the previous post, or the Q7G from Hisense, both also available at Costco.
And I do agree with 120Hz native panel, I have one right now, and even my previous TV model, and they definitely help with sports and in general are higher end panels, but these TV sets will be at a different price range

Thanks for the info on the TCL QLED

one more question, might sounds like a dumb question but are you able to connect your phone via Bluetooth to the tcl? On my current tv (lg) I can connect my youtube from my phone via bluetooth to play on my tv, was wondering if this was possible on the tcl?

Thanks.

Are you sure about Youtube via Bluetooth? I've personally never heard of such standard feature unless it is very niche for a given TV/phone.

Typically, you would use a feature called casting (ChromeCast, Miracast, Netcast or similar features) to connect connect a phone to a TV. There are different ways of casting. Some apps support native casting (like Netflix, Youtube, Chrome) from a phone and other ways would be complete Screen mirroring/casting.

The TCL is Roku based and I believe it does support Youtube casting natively.
