The LG UP7000 is an excellent TV for most use-cases, thanks to its wide viewing angles, fantastic upscaling, and superb reflection handling. However, it is somewhat held back because of its lack of HDMI 2.1 and VRR.

Overview

The LG UP7000 is LG’s entry-level 4K TV released in 2021. It boasts an IPS panel that can theoretically deliver wider viewing angles compared to VA TVs.
