CONCLUSION 3/5

The LG 65UB950V is the 65" version of the 55UB950V that we reviewed in full. The LG 55UB950V could have reigned supreme if not for its Nano Full LED backlighting system. The latter didn't impress us like the LG LEX8's did in its day. There are too few LEDs and the blacks are washed out. The image processing is good, though, and the viewing angles wider than on most other TVs.
