Among the brands that we find in the television market, the South Korean LG has shown a very favorable progression reaching the peak of OLED panels. The LG 55UP77006LB television falls a step behind by not having the aforementioned panel. But it is an economical proposal and that meets what we ask of a television. Also known as the LG 55UP7700, it is a 2021 model that includes a 55-inch processor with AI functions and supports HDR10 standard content. We review all the features of the LG 55UP77006LB.AEU , one of the cheapest mid-range proposals for this year.
Design and materials
It does not matter to the range to which the LG television belongs, they always tend to comply with a good aesthetic finish and with a correct choice of materials. In the case of the LG 55UP77006LB, we once again have a compact body for placement on the living room furniture or a wall bracket. Thanks to the VESA mount holes and its thickness of 5.7 cm , the TV fits perfectly into the home. Even if your living room is small, the TV will not be a hindrance. It is also necessary to highlight its narrow screen bezels, resulting in a panel that takes advantage of 93% of the front.
In addition, another noteworthy aspect is the choice of two legs instead of a base. Therefore, it allows the placement of a sound bar with an approximate height of up to 6 cm. The brand recommends the use of its LG SP8YA bar . It is true that the choice of plastic is something we expected, but it feels robust. The LG 55UP77006LB.AEU mounts a 55-inch screen, resulting in a width of 123.5 cm. For this reason, we recommend choosing it as long as we have a minimum distance of 2 meters from the television. Finally, it is accompanied by the Magic Control with integrated microphone to activate voice assistants and quick access buttons to services such as Netflix or Disney +.

Despite not being one of the most cutting-edge models of the brand, LG has committed to integrating several interesting technologies without its price skyrocketing. Therefore, the LG 55UP77006LB equips an IPS panel with a 55-inch diagonal 4K resolution. Therefore, its pixel density stays around 80 dpi, thus showing well-defined images on this diagonal. The display is 10-bit (8-bit + FRC), with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a brightness level of 300 cd. Specifications that make it suitable for integrating high dynamic range.
That is, despite its price, it is compatible with the most popular standards such as HLG and HDR10. However, as is already the case with the LG 65UP80006LA , it lacks Dolby Vision. However, it does incorporate HGiG , a standard that optimizes HDR results in video games, one of the most demanding content with this technology. Another key feature of this model is its Quad Core 4K processor with advanced Artificial Intelligence functions. For this reason, the panel looks really good with noise reduction, intelligent scaling of images in resolutions below 4K and allows you to take full advantage of the color accuracy of the panel.
Connectivity, Smart TV and sound
The connection section is too limited for most users. First of all, we note that we only have 2 HDMI 2.0 connectors , a limited number if we plan to connect devices such as Blu-Ray Disc players or game consoles. However, this can be remedied with an HDMI switcher . But luckily one of the connectors has eARC and ALLM return audio which reduces latency in video games. We continue with a USB 2.0 with DTT recorder function, optical audio output and Ethernet. On the other hand, wireless connectivity is maintained from other models with Bluetooth 5.0, 5GHz WiFi and DLNA.
This LG 55UP77006LB comes equipped with the Smart TV webOS 6.0 with AI functions. A renewed interface of its well-known system that replaces the bottom bar to show all installed applications, along with recommendations and access to other devices linked to the home network. In addition, for home gamers , it includes an optimized game mode with different settings to improve the visual results in our games. As we discussed earlier, with the use of our voice, we can manage searches and other functions of the television.
After seeing the connections section, we cannot expect anything remarkable in the sound either. Once again it incorporates a 2-channel audio system with a total power of 20W . Along with the usual content profiles and the equalizer, it integrates AI to offer a sound quality adapted to the content we view and the space we have.
