The LG LF6000 is an affordable 1080p LED TV with great contrast and little reflection. Its significant amount of motion blur is a deal breaker if you plan on playing video games on it.

Because it doesn't have an IPS panel, this is one of the rare LG TVs with a great contrast ratio.
This is a direct-lit TV, and due to the small number of LEDs, you can see a grid pattern on solid colors, creating a lot of dirty screen effect.
Due to its VA panel, the colors lose saturation when you are off-axis.
Update 01/06/2017: We have changed the methodology of testing. Since this is an old TV which we don't have anymore, we extrapolated the results from 2016 TVs.
The black uniformity is really great - one of the best we've seen for an LED TV.
The reflections on this TV are well under control. You don't need to worry about having a few lights in your room.
The LG LF6000 can't get bright at all, which will be an issue if you have windows in your room and plan on watching TV during the day.
The motion blur is pretty bad on this set. There is a long trail on fast-moving objects.
Movies over a 24p input have no judder. However, it doesn't do the reverse 3:2 pulldown for movies over 60p or 60i, resulting in a slight judder.
You will need to label the input to 'PC' to get marginally lower input lag of 35.9ms.
- 20% 1080p @ 60Hz @ 4:4:4
- 20% 1080p @ 120Hz
- 20% 4k @ 30Hz @ 4:4:4
- 20% 4k @ 60Hz
- 20% 4k @ 60Hz @ 4:4:4
To enable chroma 4:4:4, label the input as 'PC'.
Note: Sound Quality test for TVs reviewed before 2017 was performed at 75dB, 85dB, and Max SPL. Starting 2017, the target SPL levels have been changed to 70dB, 80dB, and Max dB SPL.
Decent bass extension for a TV, but poor frequency response which gets even worse as the volume increases. It doesn't get loud either. Significant pumping when the TV is pushed to its limits.
Good distortion levels throughout, without a significant change under heavier loads. But the TV doesn't get loud.
Conclusion SEE PRICE
The LG LF6000 is a good TV for movies or TV shows, thanks to its great contrast and little reflection. Its lack of smart features is also fine, provided you don't need them. However, if you plan on watching sports or playing video games, you will see a lot of blur on fast-moving objects.
