LG UF6800 or Samsung J6300

Dec 30, 2015 7:27AM PST

Budget wise, these two tvs mentionned in the title are the same or really close to each other. From different site and other references, I understood that the J6300 was better overall but as the UF6800 has 4K resolution, I'm questionning myself if at the same price, it wouldn't be a great idea to have the 4K feature as well as 120 Hz feature instead of 120 motion.

I will watch it from 12' away when in the living room and 18-20' when in my kitchen (open area). The room will have normal to a bit more natural ligthing (windows) than usual. I like to watch sports and movies more than anything else.

Thank you!

Bob's advice is good, plus one more issue to look at

The Carleton Bale chart is a good one to use for a ballpark idea of what might make sense for equipping a HT space.

That said, even *more* important is the overall PQ comparison between the two HDTVs. Which looks better, regardless of which specification is supposedly 'newer' or 'better'/'higher', etc.? That requires some more digging, and don't forget to take into account content from a specific type of input (e.g. Comcast cable box for movies & sports, vs. Netflix streaming services). I highly suggest you also post the same question over at AVS forum to see what other tidbits may be gleaned from others who have owned/purchased either of those two models.

Good luck.
