LG UP77 Review: Great gaming TV with Eye-catching design

LG continues to expand its catalog with more complete models that want to give war to all those who have been dating in recent months. This time we want to talk to you about the LG UP77 that presents us with an interesting number of features, and that we are talking about the mid-range, which is not usually as equipped as others.

We could say that the LG UP77 is closer to the entry-level high-end due to the benefits that we find in its operation. Of course, its cost could be considered a bit high, although after doing certain tests we can determine that its value is in accordance with what is offered, so, we are going to know in detail what it offers.

Exterior design of the LG UP77

Design that stands out for offering a slim appearance in almost all its construction

It has an interesting appearance that easily stands out in any place where it is located, therefore, it will have a suitable integration with the decoration that has its surroundings. In this case we are talking about the 50-inch model, which due to its size is recommended for medium-sized rooms. Its black color allows us to enjoy a greater presence .

To increase the elegance offered we have a front with slim bezels that look perfect regardless of the angle from which we view the television. In addition, this also allows the reproduced content to have better dimensions , since the useful screen space is greater and reaches 93% of the total area that is used to view the images.

The back also offers a good view thanks to its minimal thickness and maintains a thinner appearance, in addition, it shows cleanliness and better workmanship than those seen in other models . Without a doubt, we will consider its aesthetics as a positive point. In this case, how the least remarkable can we mention that its construction is weak.

Connectivity

We will not have a large number of connectors as it used to happen in previous televisions, however, we will have those necessary for an acceptable experience. For example, we have two HDMI 2.0 inputs to connect external devices such as laptops , consoles or players . Another important option is its USB 2.0 port that allows you to play content, however, its main benefit will be the possibility of recording directly from the television.

We have other physical connections that are also very useful, such as its Ethernet port, its satellite input, its digital audio output and its RF type antenna. Another benefit is that this model is compatible with a notorious variety of tuners. At the wireless level we are also well covered by its Wi-Fi Direct to make use of the internet from a distance. With its Bluetooth 5.0 we can connect certain devices without having to use cables.

Image quality and general functions of the LG UP77

The LG UP77 is a good option to enjoy our favorite content, as it offers certain benefits in image quality. To begin with, we have a 4K resolution that provides four times more power than Full HD , therefore, we will have a greater amount of detail that later becomes more realistic images.

It has a Direct LED panel that is not as powerful as we would like, therefore, the backlighting that we obtain is regular , and this could cause certain difficulties in darker or brighter environments. Here the main recommendation is to look for a suitable placement, however, the inclusion of technologies greatly improves this point.

Here we highlight having Dynamic Color that seeks to give us a broader spectrum of colors that have a more natural tone, which a priori allows us to see more vivid and intense images . The contrast is also benefited by LG Local Contrast that seeks to put it in a sharper state to the degree that it does not need as much lighting.

In case the content we are going to view is in a lower definition we should not worry, since through 4K Upscaler we get it to raise its quality and approach 4K . For its part, Noise Reduction allows us to enjoy scenes with more fluid movements. It is also compatible with HDR10 Pro and HLG .

Sound

We have a regular audio quality that could seem its weakest point, however, you must remember that we are talking about a model within the mid-range. Therefore, we cannot be too demanding at this point. Here we are going to find two speakers and a total power of 20W , in addition, certain improvement technologies are included.

In fact, thanks to the integration of these functions, we can enjoy a sound with a little more quality. If you want to know all that it offers you can find them in the table that we leave you above. In this case, we can highlight that it has Clear Voice , Dolby Digital , LG Sound Sync , Sound Mode Sync and Ultra Surround technologies .

Smart TV / software review and more highlights

Enjoy a complete system that provides great benefits for your entertainment

The LG UP77 offers us its own operating system that is known as webOS in this case the most recent version is included, therefore, we will have better optimization and security . It is also an intuitive platform that any user would know how to use. Likewise, it has an extensive application catalog.

Obviously it has the most popular of the moment such as Netflix , Prime Video , YouTube , Disney + and Apple TV . They are perfect options to enjoy thousands of movies and series. Another benefit that we cannot forget is its compatibility with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa that allow us to control the TV using only our voice.

Another application that we cannot forget is Apple AirPlay 2 that allows us to stream content from devices such as iPhone or iPad. Thanks to this we can view photos, videos and even listen to music in a simple way. This TV also features good optimization for gaming thanks to Game Optimizer and Low Input Lag .
