LG released a few new TVs  this year and obviously there will be options for the medium and high range, however, we are going to analyze the first category with a model that attracts attention due to the features it integrates, which together seem to provide a good performance. We are talking about the new LG UR78 that appears as a striking proposal for those looking for good quality, yes, its price goes up slightly due to its size.

To be honest, the LG 75UR7800 does not change almost at all with respect to other models in the same range, even speaking of those of past years. This for some may be something negative, however, it means that its aesthetics have been well received. In this case, the first thing to consider is its 75-inch size, which forces us to place it in the right place because of how big it is.

Obviously it will look better in large rooms or rooms, you can even improve its appearance by using the VESA mount and placing it on the wall, yes, it is a tool that is purchased separately . But perhaps it is worth it to continue improving its appearance, and having it in this position causes its front to stand out due to the thin bezels that it integrates.

These allow the presence to be better, even reaching a certain elegance. It will also be necessary to highlight the rear part that shows a small space, which generates a slim appearance almost completely . It does not become a modern or minimalist design, but it defends itself compared to other models of its competition that remain a duty in this section.


Use only the necessary connectors, this to avoid excessive use of cables and give a better order that also contributes to the design theme. In this case we have three HDMI 2.0 inputs that allow the transmission of audio and video from compatible devices. There are many options, but among the most common we find consoles, computers, laptops and players.

For its part, the two USB 2.0 ports that it has allow us to play multimedia content from units that are compatible thanks to the player that it integrates, obviously accepting the most popular formats. In the event that one is not available, you can convert said file from pages that exist on the Internet. We do not know if there is the possibility of recording content.

The rest of the physical connections are the typical ones that we will see in most televisions, therefore, we do not make a specific mention of them, however, we leave them in the specifications table so that you know what options you have. In this table you can also find the tuners that will be compatible. At the wireless level we have options such as Wi-Fi , Bluetooth 5.0 and DLNA .

Image quality and functions in general of the LG 75UR7800

The LG 75UR78006LK has an acceptable image worthy of the mid-range, so don’t expect something amazing either. For this model there is a 4K resolution that by its own power tries to make the details more precise, however, it does not happen due to other factors that we will mention. The most important is that it has a Direct LED backlight .

It is not a complaint as such, since most televisions within this range use said panel. However, we must take some care of the environment where we have the television, since it can present some quality losses in very dark or bright environments. The idea is to find a place that has somewhat more balanced lighting. Luckily it has improvement technologies.

But before talking about them, we must mention that it integrates an IPS panel that, as advantages, offers better viewing angles, that is, regardless of your location, quality is maintained, obviously there will also be weak points such as low levels of contrast and brightness, without However, these problems are solved with the best ones that work precisely on these parameters.

They won’t be many features either, but they do a good job of enhancing the viewing experience in terms of color, contrast, and brightness which are the essential aspects of an image. Let’s not forget its compatibility with HDR10 Pro and HLG , formats that also add to the quality improvement, although its operation becomes dependent on the compatibility of the content.


The power of its speakers is what we have left to owe, especially on a large television like this one. It only has 20W that for content with a higher demand will be left to duty. Luckily it integrates important enhancement technologies that generate a better experience, however, perhaps they are not enough and it will be necessary to use an external sound system.

Software analysis / Smart TV and more noteworthy features

The LG 75UR7800 integrates the most recent update of its own system, known as webOS 23 , which we must say does not change much compared to the previous version, except for certain improvements in optimization and security to deliver a more intuitive and fluid system. In terms of features, there are few changes, but it is always appreciated that you implement new functions.

Its app store is still good at including the most popular options. In the same way we can control certain functions through voice commands thanks to Amazon Alexa , thus we have a better order and we facilitate the use of the television. One of the most interesting features is the creation of profiles that is excellent in case several people are going to use the television.

So each user can customize their profile as they like without anyone interfering or moving the selections you make. We also find it important to mention that it works with Apple AirPlay 2 and Apple Homekit that allow you to stream content from an iPhone, iPad or Mac. Smart devices can be controlled in the same way. It includes some technologies to improve gaming.
