I'm looking at 60" 4K sets, and have been trying to figure out what differences exist between the LG 60UB8200 and the (apparently) just coming out 60UF7700. Info on LG's site is still very sketchy for the LF7700. It sounds like it is at least somewhat upgraded from the UB8200, being 240 Hz. (or is it "Truemotion 240", which is more like 120 Hz?), having WebOS 2.0, and also including the Magic Remote in the price (versus being an extra accessory for the UB8200). But I'm unclear on whether there are any other differences. I'd also be interested in experiences with either set. For a variety of reasons I am looking at 60", but not 65".

I have a 55" LG 5600 something or other (I forget the letters), which is edge-lit, with the "pseudo" local dimming, which I've been pretty happy with. It's a 3D set, but I don't really spend any time watching 3D content, so I don't view 3D as a requirement for the new set. (The 55" LG set will be moving into another room, where it will be replacing a 12 year old "big box" 55" Mitsubishi rear-projector 1080i set that has an intermittent problem developing.)

I checked out rtings and it seemed like it had some things that almost matched up to the big boys and some that fell short. If you want a deal though, it looks like Frys is having a sale this weekend for sub $2k and they pay the sales tax. (assuming you have one near you)

As a bit of a follow-up to my original post, I bought the 2014 model, LG 60UB8200, at Fry's for a very nice price, $1099, and no sales tax. (So, $1099 out the door. Actually, it was $1104, since they add on a $5 recycling fee.)

All else being equal, I would have preferred the 2015 60UF7700. But the price was far from equal, and the various advantages of the UF7700 were not worth it for me.

Very happy so far, although I am still playing around a bit with the white balance and color management adjustments a bit. I am very picky about color, and in my experience, LG sets get "close" when you only use the Picture Wizard and the main settings. But they are also very tweakable, and benefit from the more complicated adjustments in the white balance and color management "expert" menus.
