FYI--
This is a cheaper RGBW panel and not a RGB panel which is the better of the two.

RGBW's have a white bulb so it makes more light colors

According to rtings, this is not "real" 120hz. native 60hz.

Does anyone know the difference between this model (the 55UH6090) versus the 55UH6030? The latter is currently on sale at Microcenter for $550.

Isn't the 50UH5530 better, I don't mind paying double for electricity if my TV doubles as a monitor?

That's a 50" so I guess it depends.

If looking at a 50" I absolutely recommend this Hisense:

Just a bit of info as just a few months ago we finished a long investigation that resulted in us picking up a 6030 on special at Fry's.

First, on paper the RGBW panels are indisputably worse than RGB. The easiest way to think about it is that typical LEDs can convey both hue/color and value/brightness "information" whereas the the white diodes can only convey brightness. Ultimately our seating positions are far enough away that the human eye isn't even capable of discerning the level of detail depicted in a 4k image at 55", so the fact that this panel is technically more like 3k or 3.5k wasn't an issue for us at all, but it might be for you.

Second, the 6030 6090 6150 and 615A are all basically the same (there are also some comparable models like 6100 that don't exist in a 55" but have the same/similar specs). There may be some slight differences in number of HDMI or USB ports, ours (6030) has optical audio out which I'm not sure is true of every model, and I think they all have WiFi and Bluetooth but YMMV. Ultimately what I'm saying is picture quality is identical on all these LG models until you get to the 65XX range. Also worth noting that none of these cheaper LG models come with the new "magic" remote.

And then the question that everyone seems to want to know the answer to, how does it match up to the Samsung 6300? To me, the real question is VA or IPS panel, and the answer is entirely contingent on your use case and viewing environment. Do you watch a lot of movies at night with the lights out and hate when a night scene that's meant to be black is sort of a washed out grey? Then this TV isn't for you and you shouldn't even consider anything else with an IPS panel either. On the other hand, if you're like us and have a wide living room with seating positions out to 45 degrees on either side of the TV? Then any VA panel, including the one in the 6300 is going to look like garbage for the people sitting there and you basically have to get an IPS.

We're very happy with our decision. In a different room under different conditions I do believe the KU6300 offers a better quality image (though I still prefer the LG smart OS), but for our purposes the LG was the correct choice. (And even though the black levels aren't perfect and it only nominally supports HDR, The Man in the High Castle looks outstanding in 4k, which is good enough for me.)

Good find, im considering switching for the warranty alone. But I need to know if it supports chroma 4:4:4
