Seems a good price.

Been looking at TVs around this size. Trying to hold off till black Friday though.

This is tempting.


Its an 8-bit panel with 60hz refresh rate. Think I'll wait till black Friday.

I'll wait for the 49"or 55" to drop because 43" for the front room seems on the smaller size!
but i think this is perfect for the bedroom...

oh don't forget these aren't really 4k displays but still does ok job! and you get that magic remote so not bad.
if it was sub -£350 I would of gotten this regardless!

49" - 49UH668V

These TV deal posts get clogged up with someone saying "This TV is not real 4k" or that it's "faux K" . It's quickly followed by someone asking what exactly that means.
I think there should be a sticky somewhere explaining panels for people to refer too.
I also think the industry needs simplifying coz it's too confusing for your average Joe

i guess your taking risk with this uh668v TV models as its not a basic entry level model. faux 4K on LG models seems to be on late 2015 entry levels! regardless I think at the moment the price is ok. but if its £350 then it would be a steal!

5% quidco with currys so less than 399

It is a RGBW panel according to the displayspecification.com site.

Do people realise how close you need to sit to the tv to benefit from 4K ?

not that graph again. 4k does give you a better picture even outside of these viewing distances, which vary very widely. just because you can't see the individual pixels doesn't mean it isn't beneficial.

just watch digital foundry's latest 4k information video or other sources which talk a about the overall benefits not just pixels.

that being said, if you use only 1080p content and don't have a good up scaler on low end 4k tvs, then getting a high end 1080p with a better panel etc may suit you best

I think some people don't know their4k from their HDR! Yes some TVs have a faux version of HDR. But, there's no arguing whether a tv is 4k or not is there? It either has enough pixels or it doesn't? oO

got this model in 55inches version and i can say it a good offer. Picture is sharp, got 1600mhz panel(55inch) and on console games working smoothly. In this tv is 1200mhz but for this size of the screen is enough. Pixel dimming option working well, and you can achive really black colour. Its a 8 bit panel so HDR working not very good but doing job if you gonna use our own settings before watching netflix.

My opinion

People I can confirm this is one of LG faux 4K panels. HDR is not full HDR so can’t display all the colours and only limited sources like straight from Netflix not everything will be display in HDR. But regardless of not being real 4K or not being able to process full HDR, you won’t notice the difference due to the size being too small.

Its better to purchase http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/sony-bravia-kdl48wd653-48-full-hd-smart-tv-with-freeview-hdd-rec-usb-playback-energy-2540272

Anyone know if due to the twin tuners, whether you can record two things at once onto a HDD, or record one thing and watch another?? Really been wondering whats the point in the twin tuners on a lot of these TV's. Would be a nice feature if you can do that!!

Thanks!

Basically normal displays have RGB sub-pixel arrays, whereas these cheap LG displays are RGBW, yet each pixel is still formed using three sub-pixels. It means normally pixels are RGB RGB RGB RGB, whereas these are RGB WRG BWR GBW. It means only one in four pixels can actually display all colours. It's actually pretty much fine for movies and TV, but small text in games can sometimes look pretty bad and they'd be terrible used with a PC.

It depends how you define pixels - they have the correct number of sub-pixels and therefore complete pixels (see above), but the number of sub-pixels that actually display colour is reduced by 25%.

If everyone gave a **** what these people say about viewing distances we'd still be watching CRT.
I have a 43" Sony 4K at a viewing distance of 7ft, the picture looks amazing in 4k from netflix and youtube. And yes I can see the difference over 1080P :p

Not really. The reason CRT died was because the size. In most cases the LCD picture quality was worse than CRT at the onset...but everybody wanted that thin TV that didn't hulk.out the corner of the room.

TV's in this price range really should a minimum of 4 HDMI ports. Anything less is poor and shortcutting IMHO.

Really tempted by this model purely for the Harman Kardon speakers, if it had 3D as well I'd be sold at this price. Heat added anyway.
