RTINGS Review:

2018 Flagship IPS TV.

WARNING: This is an IPS panel with decent viewing angles but relatively bad contrast ratio compared to VA panels with so so viewing angles but great contrast specially if viewied in front of the set such as Sony X900F, X950G, Hisense H9F, H8F, TCL TVS, Vizio P, PQ, PQX, etc.

LG 65" LED SK9500PUA Series 4K Ultra HD HDR Smart TV 65SK9500PUA

$ 967.00

This is the 2018 model and compared to the SM9500 of this year (2019), it doesn't have HDMI 2.1 that is able to do real 4K@120Hz and the 2018 SK9500 supports less resolutions for PC use. Check resolution segment in RTINGS review below for SK9500 vs SM9500:

LGSM9500 2019 is currently around $ 1,700 but will probably come down closer to $ 1200 during the upcoming holiday sales.

There is a certain crowd out there that absolutely hate VA panels for their bad viewing angles and don't want to pay premium for the OLEDs. I guess this TV is for them Smilie

I never understood the weight put on bad viewing angles. If you're entertaining THAT many people, just get an additional TV. Hell, even waaaaaay back in the 80's, I'd just put out 2-3 spare sets for our bigger parties. Otherwise, I'm struggling to envision having a problem, unless your viewing area is somehow 30 feet wide, but only 5 feet deep.
Yeah I don't understand why most people prefer to buy a TV with decent viewing angles, as opposed to just having 2-3 spare TVs around... they must be nUtS!

There's something I don't understand concerning the IPS vs VA debate. For computer monitors it seems that IPS is preferred. I understand that VA has ghosting problems and higher response times for gaming, but it also generally accepted that IPS computer monitors offer a superior visual experience to VA in terms of color reproduction. So why is that IPS TV's are always shunned on Slickdeals? Is it because IPS TV's aren't made very well?

From what I've seen it's more people repeating tropes and generalities and not understanding the tech. VA generally has better contrast while IPS has better viewing angles. Both can have great color. The quality of the panel is going to make more of a difference than the type in a lot of applications. VA panels have gotten faster (I game on one, it's fantastic), IPS glow has gotten less obvious. Personally I like a VA panel for a computer monitor since I sit right in front of it and the better contrast is good for a darker room (my office). I think doing research and reading multiple professional reviews is the best way to get exactly what's right for one's usage.

This TV actually gets insanely bright, I worked in magnolia ht when it came out and we put some Kingdom of color demo on it and i could feel myself getting a tan, beat everything around it at the time, for brightness that is, blacks are not very good though only 100 zones or so and high contrast scene + high brightness x IPS= gray level not black level. Viewing angle, color good contrast not so much, so sports good movies bad

On the IPS vs VA debate - I feel like computers are used for a lot more than media consumption. Contrast shows in gaming, but it really really shows in high-res media. I've used IPS and VA panels exhaustively on computers (desktops and laptops), and do notice the contrast on media - but it's generally situational (pop on a video splitscreen at my desk or watch something on the laptop while traveling) and doesn't really bother me. If I'm consuming media every day looking head-on I will absolutely notice contrast (all my TVs are VA and OLED).

Not saying I 100% agree, but I can see the argument - lower contrast is magnified on a very large screen, and color saturation tech (quantum dots, etc) make VA colors match or beat IPS (and most TV buyers don't care about 100% color accuracy like on professional IPS comp monitors)
