LG's UM6900PUA is an entry-level 4K TV from early 2019. It has a lot of great features, but its biggest feature is being under $500 for the first time. The TV includes 4K resolutions and can upscale current content to Ultra HD levels. It also supports Active HDR, which is tech that allows for scene-by-scene picture adjustment. You'll find support for HDR10 and HLG with LG's tone-mapping technology.

There are a ton of smart TV features, too. It has LG's webOS, which is a smart platform that brings together tons of popular streaming apps like Netflix and Hulu. Plus you can use LG's Channel Plus app for access up to 70 premium internet channels. The TV also has built-in Wi-Fi and some integrated apps you can use for streaming. Amazon's Alexa and Google Assistant can be used through voice control on a compatible device to play content. It's also compatible with Apple HomeKit and Siri, which means you can control it using your iPhone or HomePod.

Other features for this TV include an TruMotion 120, which provides high-speed motion clarity with a 120 Hz refresh rate, and two 20W speakers, which are decently powerful. The LG has a quad-core processor that helps you access everything quickly and reduces distracting video artifacts. The IPS panel has superior viewing angles and color accuracy, which is important because some of the LG UM6900 series TVs use VA instead of IPS, which improves color contrast but sacrifices those viewing angles you want in a TV meant for a living room. You'll also get three HDMI inputs and two USB ports to use with external devices.
