LG UH7700 Review

Color brightness is the one flaw in the LG UH7700 series — and that comes down to subjective ‘taste’ as to what is ‘bright enough.’ For average TV watchers, the LG UH7700 series provides excellent content upscaling for a superior versatility of entertainment choices with superb motion speed for video gaming.

LGUH7700 – the ‘LG’ might as well stand for Looking Good because that’s what the UH7700 model accomplishes for the eyes. Thank the LED backlighting and the 4K screen sharpness with frame per second refresh rate processor speed of 240 Hz. All the wanted features in big screen luxury at prices that look good also. All screen sizes under the model series UH7700 contain the same technical features to make your shopping experience so easy. Consider the LG UH7700 TV series as the best value for a quality cinematic viewing experience for DVDs, cable TV, movies, and sports and video gaming.

Pros
  • No motion blur due to 240 Hz processor.
  • Low input lag of image transmission.
  • Smart TV web OS 3.0 with free Channel Plus streaming content and voice-activated universal remote.
Cons
  • Color brightness not too bright, even with HDR technology.
  • Contrast ratio is average and thus not recommended for viewing in low light or dark room settings.

Best For
  • The LG UH7700 is best for the unique metallic-looking frame border and stylized, wide footprint, stand along with thin case design that mounts flush to wall or stands secure atop a tabletop. Best also for wide-angle viewing without color distortion and for upscaling all older content to 4K screen resolution.

LG UH7700

Overview

When shopping for the latest high-end, large screen, UHD LED Smart TVs; the common thought that runs through most minds is: “some wanted tech feature must be given up in order to make UHD LED TV affordable.” Tut tut, don’t sweat. Let me share what the LG UH7700 TV series has to offer in terms of the latest TV technology built-in, no matter which of the three cinematic screen sizes are chosen.

Cast eyes first on the metallic-like shine of slim border of TV and stylized wide footprint stand designed to bring a pragmatic sturdiness to design aesthetics. It isn’t metal, but a lightweight plastic material. The latest 4K screen resolution that will fit the soon to be commonplace 4K content makes this model TV a long-term sustainable investment. The color is the latest Dolby Vision brand as used by Hollywood in creating film. The Smart TV is top of the class with Magic Remote that calibrates sound as needed and has voice activation. Channel Plus technology provides a full array of free entertainment content such as sports, outdoor adventure, comedy beyond the normal TV channels or cable. There is the 240 Hz processing speed plus Tru Motion technology that eliminates motion blur to any fast action scenes as found in sports or video gaming. While the color brightness isn’t best, all these amazing tech features with abundant streaming content that are so much more costly in other brands makes the price tag quite good for the average household budget.

Design

LG UH7700

LG – ‘Looking good’ TV design. Tired of same old black plastic case and border as found on most TVs? LG understands and created a dazzling brushed metallic (plastic) border with wide stylish, yet stable, stand. The LG UH7700 outshines other TV brands for this unique border design. The thin design of the case makes this perfect for flush to wall mounting. With wall mounting, however, some back connections would not be easily accessed. The three HDMI and three USB ports were well designed as side inputs. The screen itself is semi-gloss and does not reflect average room lighting on screen.

Picture Quality

Good exterior design is nice but does the LG UH7700 model series hold up to the all important picture quality standards of good screen resolution, which is the number of color pixels that form an image and the contrast ratio, the lightness and darkness of images that define detail? In terms of the screen resolution, the 4K resolution creates sharp images and up- scales all older content well. The contrast of light to dark images is average but ok when viewing TV with average room lighting. The speed that images come to screen is above average with little ‘motion blur’ making it perfect for sport fans. All things combined, LG UH7700 TVs do provide a quality picture with price affordability.

Sound Quality

The LG UH7700 TV series has an average frequency response enabling a 75 – 85 decibel range. The mic on remote does assist with sound calibration. The G-R-RREEAT! of Tony the Tiger won’t roar from the set but the snap, crackle, pop of exquisite color and technology balances out average volume.

Look for the three side HDMI ports and three USB ports for connecting audio, Smart Phone, DVD devices. The Channel Plus feature provides 50+ streaming channels of latest entertainment. There are the usual apps of Netflix, Amazon Video, and YouTube with easy toggling navigation. You’ll never say ‘nothing on TV’ with LG UH7700 series TV. Smart TV, smart YOU!
