But as I use the TV basically to gaming (xbox one and ps3) I would know how it performs compared to my actual model, since the content I actually use is just 1080p at maximum.


We actually reviewed that model back in 2012 :) So based on what I remember; the two TVs actually have more similarities than differences (both use IPS), but LM7600 had deeper black levels. Input lag on LM7600 is around 30-40 ms in the game mode.

If you mostly use your TV for gaming my advice would be to keep your current TV. There is no point in having a 4K TV when the Xbox One and PS3 cap out at 1080p (and usually go lower).

I dont think merely setting the picture display to "game" is the fastest option for this model. I'm curious if you guys could redo the lag test and give results with the input chosen as a "PC" or "Gaming Console" , possibly one all 3 of the HDMI ports?


Sometimes you can get lower input lag by setting the HDMI input to "PC", yes. We should probably have taken one more "PC" reading. Unfortunately, the TV has been returned so I can't do more.

I'm tempted to buy a Leo Bodnar device myself just to see how it measures up against the sharp and samsung models I have since I've used them all as big screen monitors for the last few years.


Remember that the Leo Bodnar device outputs in HD. You might get lower input lag with a true 4K60 PC signal since there is no scaling. We measure input lag mostly to determine console gaming performance.

Hi Thanks for the answer!

:) Seens like the 4K TVs aren't good enough to gaming so far, somehow I knew it! I read in another websites that the upscaling are 'good enough' from HD sources on 4K TVs, then I thought would be good to 'upgrade' to a new 4K model!


I found the review of my model here in the channel and really the results are pretty similar, and the black levels looks better comparing the numbers.

Well, looks like maybe I'll wait for the next generation of games to switch to a 4K model!

#7464 Hi guys, after reading your review (congrats for the good work) i went and bought the EU version 60UF850V, as it was the best the budget could get in 60inches.

All is fine and dandy and Netflix 4K is just mind blowing!
I did this color test patern yesterday from Youtube

i noticed in white color page, the left side of the panel is pink-ish.
see photos from my camera below:

Then in movies, when it has white colors i can notice it there too slightly.

As I have 3 more days to return it (10 days return free period) do you think i should replace it, or it will get better by time?
