LG 65LA970W

 

First Review: LG enters the 4K fray and it's another outstanding entry

Arguably the best native UHD picture quality to date ; Fun 3D picture quality ; Excellent sound quality

Limited effective viewing angle ; Only three HDMIs, and none are built to the latest HDMI spec ; 500 dearer than some rivals

The set’s contrast controls need to be handled with care too, but this is best addressed in the picture quality section.

LG 65LA970W

 

The picture doesn't have the impact of the top 4K TVs, but it's still a fantastic watch

Vibrant, lively UHD and Full HD picture ; Good black depth ; Interesting speaker design

Colours can appear overcooked ; Struggles when upscaling SD ; Limited catch-up TV

Overall, then, it’s a mixed bag for the LG 65LA970W. The 4K footage is an inevitable eye-opener, but other 4K TVs we've seen do better with detail and depth.

LG 65LA970W review

 

LG's debut 65-inch Ultra HD TV costs £500 more than key rivals from Sony and Samsung, but might just get away with it.

Seriously pretty looks ; Stunning native 4K pictures ; Good audio ; Magic Remote interface

Very limited effective viewing angle ; Occasional light blocking ; HDMI uncertainties ; Average native panel contrast

So long as you can stand the price, the LG 65LA970W is another spectacular example of what UHD is capable of.

LG 65LA9700 Ultra HD TV review

 

The LG LA9700 is one of the most impressive TV's on the market

Ultra HD content looks superb ; Built-in sound bar is a nice touch ; Upscaling full HD content works well

Premium price ; Some backlight bleed on edges ; Smart TV interface could be improved

There's a huge lack of 4K or Ultra HD content to view on it, and it's priced well out of reach of many consumers, but the LG 65LA9700 Ultra HD TV is one of the most impressive on the market. If you're willing to spend big, the LA9700 comes highly...

LG 65LA9700 review

 

While LG's LA9700 is an oustanding LED TV, a lack of 4K content and lofty price point are deal breakers for us.

LG deserves recognition for developing an LED LCD TV that can hang with the best of them. Its picture quality is outstanding and its 4K performance is dazzling. And while it isn’t LG’s fault that there’s no 4K content to enjoy on its Ultra HDTV, that...

Outstanding UHD and HD picture quality. Good audio output. Loaded with features.

Very expensive. Some backlight blooming. Little native UHD content available. Only three HDMI ports.

LG 65LA9700 4k TV Review: 8 Million Pixels and Drop-Down Speakers

 

The LG 65LA9700 packs an enormous amount of entertainment power into a moderately sized package that will leave you mostly satisfied with your purchase. Featuring 4K Ultra HD visual specs that give you a 3,840-by-2,160 pixel 4k resolution which packs...

Awesome 4K/UHD picture quality ; Renders regular HD superbly ; Motion rendering is smooth at 240 Hz ; Full wireless and cable connectivity ; Sleek elegant screen design ; Retractable speakers with very good 50W audio quality ; Crammed with interactive...

No real difference between 4k and 1080p/HD for normal content viewing ; 4000 is a lot to spend for enjoying still scarce 4K content ; Lacks an external connectivity box ; Hardware/software upgrade features are lacking ; Problems with backlight bloom ;...

4K TV content is almost guaranteed to keep expanding in scope and variety, so if you want to be ready for this growing trend, then you really can’t go wrong with the LG 65LA9700. However, even amongst its own 4K counterparts, the LA9700 lacks an easier...
