    Might be good for gaming, but not a good TV for movies. Why?
    * horrible haloing
    *Severe light bleed
    * no side view, only 12/6o'clock
    * no local dimming to counter back light issues
    * this TV only has 1 filter for back light
    * 2019 LG Soundbar will not sink with this TV, horrible voice delay
    * Customer support is awful!!!

    Why did you reduce the colors of your video??? This really makes no sence to me, when you're reviewing a TV! Everything looks grey and washed out and everything just look not appealing. Please don't do that!

    Being hateful shortens your lifespan. Keep it up, there is much too much hate. That's why people are dying everywhere because of hatred. You cannot learn to love others until you learn to love yourself. bring on the hate and the dirty language, it's what I live for. I remember the America where people could agree to disagree, now you just get killed over likes and dislikes, this is what we've come to? I've decided that nothing anyone can say or do will stop me from being happy. I never would have made it to 106 if I was full of hate.

    nanocell,ok nice,i must tell that's really impressive.i went on a store that my friend is working and i managed to play a movie with dark scenes from a usb and honestly for an ips panel is really good,,not so good as va panels but nothing like past years lg some point i would like to see lg tvs with va panel and nanocell,that would be a huge step up for lg and stop using only ips.

    So this just arrived and there seems to be an issue of descriptive accuracy on the box. The outer box clearly says Full Array Dimming Pro right under the model number. So I called LG and they said the box is wrong. Has anyone had the same experience? I researched this on the LG site and it said the 9500 has the Pro dimming but not the lower lines. The 9500 only comes in the 65 inch and this tv is 75 inches. So is it possible the box is printed incorrectly? Is it possible LG has no idea of the technology in its tvs? Or is the box plain wrong?

    Just bought this tv and dark scenes are very grayish looking pretty bad and the screen would display big brown patch on the top right corner and center top that only appeared in low mid to dark scenes. I would of kept it , But the blacks remind me of the cheap U series with major washed gray effect …. LOCAL DIMMING is TERRIBLE is would look like there's flash light at the back of the panel no matter what setting its on I had to keep it off. In brighter rooms this tv is nice you won't notice how terrible the dark scenes are but if you wanna have movie night Dark SCENES look like $h!t
