I bought the 65" version of this from a local Target a few weeks back. I unboxed it, set it up, fiddled with the settings, watched TV for about 2 hours or so. By the next day, I had it boxed up and ready to return.

It's a budget TV. I knew that before buying it. But I thought it would at least be comparable to my 8 year old 46" Sony LCD. I was wrong. Picture quality was so bad that I actually preferred to stick with my old Sony (despite it being nearly 20" smaller).

Biggest complaints
- Poor picture quality
I tried a variety of source material, almost everything looked bad. Even the "best" stuff was average at best.

- Dim panel
If your TV will be in a room with light, the panel will look dim. If you watch in a dark room, maybe this won't be an issue.

- Poor light uniformity
I watch hockey. When the camera is panning around on huge sheets of white ice, defects in the panel become readily apparent.

Best description i could find from LG customer support.

Our TVs have a tier system and the UK6090PUA series TVs are the entry-level TVs for our 4K HDR Smart LED UHD TVs. The series does not feature our ThinQ® AI technology which has Google Assitant built-in on the webOS Platform and it doesn't support Bluetooth so it will not be compatible with the LG Magic Remote. There next two series after the UK6090PUA series will be the UK6190PUB series, followed by the UK6200PUA series. Then the UK6300PUE series will be the next level that features our ThinQ® AI technology which has Google Assitant built-in on the webOS Platform and it also supports Bluetooth so it is compatible with the LG Magic Remote which has to be purchased separately. The introduction of the ThinQ AI (Artificial Intelligence) enables the implementation of hundreds of voice requests utilizing webOS, our own award-winning open smart platform, as well as third-party AI services and it combines the simple and fast webOS Smart TV platform with integrated Google Assistant and a deep learning technology to create an AI capability that uses voice commands to control TV functions, search for content over-the-air or on various streaming partners, or control other connected IoT devices in your network...^IFV

Bought it last night, the UK series is apparently quite new, as is the 50" model. I imagine its comparable to other budget models that are reviewed over on Rtings.

I am eyeing this LG and the Sharp:
https://www.bestbuy.com/site/shar...Id=5746805

Not sure which one to choose. The Sharp has great reviews, not much on the LG.

I was just going to post the same question. Is the LG $30 better than the Sharp - 50" Class - LED - 2160p - Smart - 4K UHD TV with HDR Roku TV Model:LC-50LBU591U ?

One difference I see is that the Sharp only has a framerate of 60. The Sharp also lacks component input, it has just a single composite input; the LG has 1 component, 1 composite and 1 that does both.

What do people think about WebOS vs Roku? I'm looking for something that will be usable by a technophobe.

I bought it and took it back to get the 49" on a Black Friday sale. The 50" is a VA screen where as the 49" is IPS, which I am happy with. It only looked good at dead center, much worse than I expected. The uk6090 is a down grade from the uk6300, which has Bluetooth, magic remote among other things. I think the retail price of $499 is a bogus black Friday promotion because you can get the uk6300 cheaper than that

Where did you get the information regarding what panel they are using? Im curious if that Westinghouse WD55UB4530 i bought last friday is going to look better or worse. My vision sucks.

I had to look into this further, LG is advertising the 50" or any UK6090PUA series TV as having an IPS (In Plane Switching) panel. https://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-50UK...-4k-uhd-tv

Where do you see that? I didn't see any reference in the specs and at least 2 questions says the 50UK6090PUA would be VA. Eg: LGJoel said 22 days ago:
Quote :
The LG UK6090PUA 4K HDR Smart LED UHD TV series is offered on screen sizes of 65", 60" 55", 50" 49" and 43". The LG UK6090PUA 4K HDR Smart LED UHD TV - 65" Class (64.5" Diag), Model # 65UK6090PUA is an IPS Display as you noted as are the 55", 49" and 43" screen sizes in this series. The 60" screen and the 50" screen for this series are VA Panels...^IFV
BestBuy has both the 49UK6090PUA (IPS) and 50UK6090PUA (VA) for $329.99.

The feature list on the BB page for the 49" brags about IPS; the 50" does not.

Most of the VA/IPS/TN discussion is for gamers. For people just watching TV or movies would IPS be the clear winner?
