The LG UM7300 is a great and affordable TV from the new UHD TV series of the South Korean tech company, which supersedes the UK series from last year. It has several strengths – and weaknesses – which we will explain thoroughly on this page. The UM7300 especially scores with a very budget-friendly price and good performance in very bright rooms.

Design and material quality of the LG UM7300

With regards to its price, the design and build quality are decent. The TV is mostly made of plastic. Note that the feet of the LG UM7300 are mounted very close to the sides of the screen. With the smallest screen size this is hardly a problem, but with the largest model the base must be as wide as the TV itself. So if you’re not planning to hang the UM7300 on the wall, be sure to be careful.

Additionally, the base should be flat, otherwise the TV will tilt back and forth slightly – similar to a wobbly table. If it is stable, the TV only wobbles slightly when nudged, which is great.

Great picture quality for well lit rooms

The LG UM7300 has an IPS panel, like most LG TVs from the affordable ranges. This panel technology provides a very wide viewing angle and sufficient brightness, however, there are also disadvantages: The blacks aren’t displayed very well. Dark areas on screen have a slightly grey touch, which is especially noticeable in dark environments.

Also, the contrast is rather limited, so HDR content doesn’t look as impressive as on expensive OLED TVs, so it’s no big deal that no dynamic HDR formats are supported. Therefore, this TV is more suitable for bright rooms with a large couch. So you can look at the TV from any corner without having the picture change.

Please note that the 70 inch version of the LG UM7300 uses a VA panel. Here the properties are completely opposite to one another: blacks and contrast are much better, however, the viewing angle is limited. If you look at the screen at an angle, you will notice that colors quickly lose their luminosity.

Motion handling and gaming

Fast moving content is displayed without any major issues. The response time is about 5 ms and is therefore fast enough to avoid motion blur. Unfortunately, the backlight flickers at 120 Hz, which cannot be avoided. Low fps content can be interpolated up to 60 Hz. There are also different modes to remove stutter and judder at different frequencies.

For gaming, the LG UM7300 is a great and – above all – affordable choice. The price and performance ratio is especially good here. It performs equally well in PC gaming as well as with consoles. The input lag is 11 ms at 1080 @ 60 Hz and 10 ms at 4K @ 60 Hz. Gaming at 120 Hz is not possible. There is an Auto Low Latency Mode, which is only activated by using the correct HDMI port. Unfortunately there is no VRR. There is also no HDMI 2.1, which would allow 4K @ 120 Hz. This is reserved for the higher quality NanoCell series and OLEDs in the higher price range.

Sound quality should be improved

The sound quality of the LG UM7300 is not particularly great. Occasional users who have a movie night every now and then or enjoy watching the afternoon program won’t complain – on the contrary: dialogues are clear and the TV is loud enough to be heard well in the living room.

Enthusiasts, however, will find many reasons to complain: There is no HDMI eARC, so neither uncompressed Dolby Atmos nor DTS:X can be processed. Ordinary DTS and Dolby Digital are supported via HDMI ARC, so that the use of a HiFi system or a soundbar is possible. We strongly recommend this, as the TV is particularly lacking in bass.

Smart TV features of the LG UM7300

The smart interface LG webOS 4.5 works very well and is easy to use. Initially, the handling might be a bit complicated, but you will find your way around very quickly. People that do not have a hand for technology will have no major problems. Another advantage: The selection of apps in the LG Store is extremely large. The classics, e.g. Netflix, Amazon Prime Video or YouTube are pre-installed. Other popular apps can easily be downloaded within seconds.

We were pleased to find that the affordable LG UM7300 has the same high-quality remote, the LG Magic Remote, that is also included in the top OLEDs, for example the LG C9. The remote control has hotkeys for Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, a microphone for voice control via Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa as well as the LG Virtual Pointer, which works like a computer mouse on the screen.

Different model names for different sizes

Please pay attention when choosing the right screen size for you. Not only the panels differ, but also the model vary ever so slightly and may cause some confusion.

Great, affordable LCD TV for beginners in the world of 4K

The LG UM7500 is a great contestant for all those who look for their very first 4K TV. It is especially suitable for bright rooms, inexpensive, delivers a pleasant brightness and scores particularly well with its very wide viewing angle. Even with a very wide seating area, colors are bright and clear when viewed at an angle. It is also an interesting choice for gamers, as the input lag is very low. What is special is that the 70 inch model has a VA panel, which makes this variant also suitable for dark rooms. For newcomers to the 4K world, the UM7300 range offers the right devices for a beginners' needs.
