The LG 43UJ6300 review shed the light on the entry-level 43-inch TV from the UJ6300 series that has been available since 2017. The series is remarkable for its 4K resolution and good upscaling of low-quality content. Besides, it’s based on the WebOS 3.5 smart platform featuring plenty of advanced options (color or contrast calibration, for example) and a wide range of the preinstalled apps.
The picture quality is flawless in a well-lit space. Low contrast ratio results in poor black uniformity and makes black look gray in a dark room. The TV can be viewed from aside saving its color accuracy, but still, the brightness starts fading away at an angle of 250 and more. The shutdown of the Power Saving mode enhances the TV’s screen brightness.
One of the noticeable LG 43UJ6300 specs is its low input lag. It takes the unit only 12.5ms to transfer from the moment when a button on the controller is pressed to the moment when the result is visible on the screen. The lag is a bit noticeable in fast-paced games (first-person shooters, for instance). The model’s fast response time of 16.7ms means a low motion blur that also contributes to a seamless gaming experience.
In general, the sound is loud and clear, but sometimes, it’s imbalanced and produces too loud background sound. For example, the crowd noise in sports is louder than the announcer's voice so it is hard to hear. Good external speakers can handle this issue and provide the TV with some more benefits (more bass, volume, surround sound, etc.).
The unit is flat, thick, and it has thicker than average plastic borders. Some of the inputs are on the side of the TV, but some of them are on the rear panel. So, it’s designed for installing it on the horizontal surfaces rather than on the wall.
This model lacks a swivel stand. The plastic legs are on the ends and might seem flimsy, but they support TV well. Since the distance between legs is large, consider installing the TV on a wide surface. The LG 43UJ6300 remote could have been larger and backlit. However, it features the Info button to tell the users the pixel definition of the show they are watching.
