So, I recently purchased an LG 55UH770V primarily for gaming and general usage (Movies/T.V./etc.) after getting home and set up it had an awful halo effect around the edge of the T.V. which just killed the experience for me, I'm a little OCD so couldn't help but be drawn to it.

After being told by Richer Sounds, this is normal with edge lit setups, which I don't accept, it's going back for a refund. Does anyone have a recommendation of a T.V. that won't have any halo effect and fits the bill with a budget of around £1,000? Ideally would like some form of HDR support, but I appreciate the 2016 models aren't going to give the true HDR experience for a no. of reasons.

Any help is appreciated, would also prefer a 5/6 year guarantee with the telly!

Thanks,

Paul

I love my Sony KDL50W8 which i bought nearly 3 years ago. Tech has moved on since then, but i'm pretty sure this still has one of the lowest input latencies on the market. I've been looking at getting a 4K tv in the near future for when project Scorpio is released, but it seems that all 4K tv's currently have massive input latency, or cost an arm and a leg. It seems we may have to wait until OLED tv's come down a bit more in price.

It is, although according to reviews the LG's is a rather poor implementation and particularly noticeable. Have you tried turning off the local dimming?

An real HDR LCD with no haloing is the holy grail and there are only one or two examples in the market, neither of which are in budget.

Your best bet is either to go for something that's better tuned so the haloing is less noticeable like a Sony XD93 or Samsung KS series, or forget the local dimming entirely.

The most similar screen to your LG for the latter option would probably be the Sony XD85 which is another high quality IPS panel.

The ue55KS7000 is great. Can be had for £830-899.

It's 10-bit hdr
