For the price, you get the size, Dolby vision and Atmos, HDMI 2.1
Is a steal
Yeah but I dont think I will ever use hdmi 2.1... but for the size and features... looks good. Not sure how this compares to the LG 82um7600 as well.

Is the older set a IPS panel ?

Wow, super large TV prices have come a long way, I got the 75" LG in early 2018 for 3.5k and was already very pleased, now for same or less can get 82"!

My experience with LG is that the UI is super good, very easy to use and the magic remote is really convenient (nvr used Samsung one so can't comment). I'm using a Panasonic 55" in my MBR and the UI, trying to key in the name of videos I want to watch on youtube with the default tv remote is just a pain.

If LG ever does a trade-in promo for their >80" TVs i will surely consider upgrading. Once you go big, you can't go back

Size matters, it's like a projector screen kind of size... and most PJ setups don't have that great a light control..

Haha this tv is very new and so much discount Liao?
Think by end of the year can see below 2.5k.

For those who bought this, how is the picture quality?
PQ is good IMHO, Im pleased of the fluidity and contrast and vibrancy.
Sound is definitely good now, as it allows pass through of Dolby Atmos to my soundbar.

Im still getting used to the gigantic size 😅

Do take into consideration your distance as well.
My sitting position is around 250cm from the TV.
With the 65" TV, watching Japanese anime and Korean variety/dramas are already on the edge of watchable due to the subtitle size and positioning not being easy for the eyes to look up and down with as compared to a smaller size TV. So something to consider when going for a bigger screen. I wanted to go bigger because I love the immersion but man... watching anime, and Korean shows like Running Man, I am glad I can modify the subtitle size for some shows depending on the website. (I watch my overseas shows on Viu or Netflix. So nothing illegal )

So take into consideration whether you have platforms that allow you to make it easier for you to watch and read subtitles without having you to move away from the video itself just to be able to read the subtitle from a huge screen. It's not fun at all and quite distracting since you'll miss the scenes as you are reading the subtitle from one end of the TV to the other if the subtitle is big or too small and low on the screen from the scene. It's some of the annoyances I experience ever since getting a bigger screen while still having that same distance.

75 will fit easily
