We had purchased a 65 in Samsung for our Den about a two years ago and have been please with its performance. At that time, this set was the bee's knees....until now. We decided to prematurely upgrade the 65 in and wanted something bigger. The choice was the 78 in Samsung curved (nice but pricey), 75 in Samsung flat (did not seem as good a picture), Sony 75 in flat (nice colors) or the LG 79 in panel (great all the way round). I really was leaning towards another Samsung, but saw a demo between the curved Sammy and the LG side by side. I am a big fan of Samsung, but based on the picture quality and vividness of the LG, plus the motion enhancements for live action scenes, we decided to go with the LG 79 in flat panel.
So far, this TV has exceeded expectations, and is way more than we expected. It fills up the wall perfectly, then we realized how small the 65 in Sammy was :( OK, that is fixed now.

I Bought one from walt's TV ; Miles Bouchard was the rep that sold me the TV ; he was awesome and answered all my questions ; he was extremely knowledgeable and very helpful and made the experience of buying a very expensive item over the phone/web hassle free ; the delivery guys were awesome and they treated the TV during the white glove delivery very carefully ; this tv is huge and heavy and u need white glove delivery with this item; I bought from Amazon an innovex 83" TV cabinet with steel frame to put TV on it and it supported the TV very well; when they unpack the TV u need to use the styrofoam packing on the front and back of TV to lay it on its back to attach the stand that comes with it; the guys have to hold the TV to lay it on its back and later stand it up with out touching the front panel which can be a bit tricky ; The picture once u use it will blow you away ... I have this tv in my man cave ... I have watched avatar 3d and pacific rim 3d in IMAX and...
I have the 84 inch UB9800.
I also have a 65 inch Panasonic Plasma, which at the time of purchase 3 years ago was the best you could get and it still produces wonderful imagery. However, when you are sitting 10 feet from the LG 84UB9800 and watch Netflix 4K content....you are there.
There is no other way to describe it. I had a brief visit from a friend who saw the 4K content, he could not believe the picture, two hours later, he called to say that he had just bought two of the smaller 55 inch versions for his home. That is the type of impact this TV has on people.
If you are sitting on the fence.......oh well...... watch out for the grooves.
