The LG has a correct and well-calibrated image quality, but you have to do with a limited native contrast that is suitable for daytime viewing; forget about home theater programs in the dark.
With this new 55UM71007LB LG, the company makes an assumed technological choice. The use of LEDs provides an excellent image. 
With regard to the display, the company proposes a Ultra HD 4K resolution. This resolution is clearly better than what is generally done.
With a screen size of 55 inches, this 55UM71007LB is at the top of its range. At the same time, we are dealing with a nice display on the screen.
Designed with a frequency of 60 Hz, we’re looking at a high-end TV. Perfect image and exceptional synchronization in game or movie mode.
Even better, thanks to its advanced technology, the screen of this television provides a Ultra HD 4K quality resolution.
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.

The sound quality is correct but nothing more. The typical low-medium and mid-range sounds are far from what the competition offers.
