What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A totally immersive presence in the room The equipment is an engineering marvel, but the picture is unbelievable. Deep rich blacks and brilliant vibrant colors captivate you. It dominates the room, you can't take your eyes off of it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great value for a 79 in. UHD TV easy to set up and has great features. picture quality is excellent when the proper color and other settings are applied. sound quality is excellent with the built-in HK speakers - better than most comparable TVs. replaced my 52 in. Sony HD LCD and no comparison except the colors on the Sony seem warmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value Excellent image and sound quality. Magic mouse makes using Smart TV features very easy. It is the best I have seen. Skype speed is bit slow. It is missing HBO-GO. Voice commands do not work well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing TV You will not regret buying this TV, it has an amazing picture, even over the air HD looks great. I have owned several LCD/LED TV's and this is by far the best. I had read the reviews, watched several youtube comparisons, in store demos, and was ready to buy, but was still uneasy about spending so much on a tv without seeing what everyday non 4k looks like and 3D. I found the 55in LG 4k at a warehouse store for a great price and replaced my familyroom tv. My rational was if I did not like it could be easily returned and I would look for another tv. I was amazed by the 55 in, 4k is stunning, 3D will wow you, everyday HD from Satellite and over the air is fantastic. Needless to say after a few days with the 55in I went out and purchased the 79in, now I have 2 great tv's. The interface for the tv is easy to navigate, I was a little worried about the remote, it is like a Wii controller you move the pointer to get to menu options etc. It will also allow you to click through options and screens with remote buttons, both ways are easy to use. Never used the smart functionality of a tv, I always found the interface to be clunky and slow, would use an external device like a gaming console, not so with this tv, it is easy to use and fast, can switch from netflix to Hulu to youtube and back easily. There is voice and gesture motion control for this tv as well as a built in camera (have not used Skye yet) Sound is very good from the built in speaker bars, surround mode gets me every once in a while, most with water features in a movie or show, I think for a second that there is water running somewhere in the house. Could babble on for days, I cannot not say enough good things about this tv, it is an outstanding value, many cool features, amazing picture and 3D. This TV will be the showcase of any room and will not disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic value in a 79' HDTV We couldn't be more pleased with out purchase of this big screen TV. Out of the box, the settings are way too bright. Once toned down, the picture with an HD signal is fantastic. No issues with high speed action such as sports. What little 3D we have tried looks good as well. The speakers have only been used when we have watched a little on-line content. They sound as good or better than any sound bar we have tried. Another plus is side view quality, great when we entertain

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantasic picture, easy to use This was an upgrade from a 65" rear projection tv. It is a whole new world of enjoyment. Great picture in all modes, the built in sound is better than most. I have it paired with a 4k upscaling dvd player and all my movies look so much better. Can't wait for baseball season to start. Only negative, you can't use wireless headphones and the built in speakers together. I am hard of hearing and really like using the headphones, my wife would rather just have the tv speakers on.
