LG 49UB850V - 49" 3D LED 4K TV - Smart TV - Ultra HD only 769.90 for 23 hours only.

Been researching TV'S over the Black weekend in hope of finding a great steal but turns out most of the TV'S are old stock and not future proof (4k)

Finally came across this deal of 769.90 on Pixel mania.

This TV is 3d, 4K and Smart, just what I needed.

If you check the following links you can see that this TV is still selling for 900+:

Thanks g4gazmo. I did ask Currys today prior to ordering and even though PixMania is 77% owned by British Dixons Retail plc who own Currys, they could not match the price. It is definitely worth speaking with John Lewis.

I got a 55" Samsung from Pixmania for a good price but there are a few caveats to beware of. The TV's are grey imports. Mine was shipped from France, went to Germany and then finally to the UK. Because they aren't made for the UK market they don't receive DVB-T2 (I think that was it). It basically means that you can't get the Freeview HD channels, only the SD channels. Didn't matter to me as I'm using a Sky box anyway. The other issue is that it came with a foreign 2 pin plug meaning I had to buy an adapter for it.

And the final issue for me was the length of time it took to arrive. Ordered it on a Friday and finally arrived over a week later on the Monday. I'm overlooking the above because I did make a substantial saving over the UK price but do be aware of the above issues as they may persuade you that it's better to get a UK sourced TV.

Thanks for the information Parva4. Although I will be connecting a Sky Box, I do hope that the problem with receiving DVB-T2 is not the case as they have included "DVB-C, DVB-S, DVB-S2, DVB-T, DVB-T2" in the product specification list. If this is incorrect information I may well ask them to lower the cost further.

I will keep you updated when it arrives :)

Ah, you may be ok then as mine only listed DVB-T so if you're does list DVB-T2 then you may well be ok. You will need a 2-pin socket adapter though, either that or cut the plug off and wire a new 3-pin plug up. I just got an adapter because it was easier than messing about. :)

If your looking for some sort of price match try Richer Sounds. They will get a close as possible plus sign up to the VIP club free and get the 5 year warranty included. I think they may be able to get within £50.00 of the TV which is worth is if the 5 year warranty is included. I have never had any problems with the warranties ever. hopefully this helps.
#18
Anyone had any luck price matching yet?
#19
research this tv b4 you buy,they aren't to good by all account.One even took it back after a few days.hence the price being so low

Contacted PC World / Currys, Richer Sounds and John Lewis not of which are willing to price match this offer....

Thank you for the feedback jumpinoffthbed, I have contacted LG direct and they have confirmed that this TV does infact come with a 1 year manufacturers warranty direct. Also the advisor was kind enough to advise me that this is infact a UK model as the last four digits determine this "850V".

Lastly the advisor confirmed that the TV is eligible for extended warranty. He said either fill in the slip that is included with the TV for free extended warranty or if this is not inside the box you can purchase the extended direct from LG (Domestic and General).

Kind Regards

Did he say how many years the extended warranty is and how much it costs if not in the box? A five year warranty is essential on a TV costing this much in my opinion

I completely agree.

To be honest, I completely forgot to ask the extended warranty period. I will wait for the TV to arrive and call back with the serial number for an accurate quotation. As soon as I pay I will let you know :)

Hi Anthonysinclair, they all stated that they would not price match online only retailers...or that particular retailer wasn't on their price matching list..... . It was worth a try though... Think I'm going to chance it and purchase one from pixmania.... Especially after your comments about your telephone call to LG.... Thanks for your updates....

Thanks for letting me know, LG confirmed it is covered by a 1 year manufacturers warranty, you are eligible to take out extended warranty and it is a UK model. Thats the most important information you need if you are considering this purchase. Also you will be protected by the Sale of Goods Act 1979. It says goods should be of satisfactory quality, fit to do the job intended and last a reasonable length of time. This time varies but approximately 6 years.

States in description "This television is an imported item".

Following their page to what this means for UK buyers it states:

"Because this is an imported product, it may present some minor differences to products designed for your country. Below is a list of these differences:

- your country’s language may not be available in the menus;
- your country may not be available in the settings;
- if you receive channels through an aerial, they will be in standard resolution as opposed to 1080p (DVB-T tuner and not DVB-T2);
- you may need to manually set the order of channels. If you receive channels through a set-top box, this won’t be necessary;
- full smart services may not be available;
- the product manual may not be available in your country’s language"

Thanks for pointing this out coolboy101, Its really weird as this contradicts what LG advised over the phone regarding the model number. Also in the product description it states: Ultra HD (4k), 49 inches (123 cm) 16/9, 1000Hz, Freeview (DVB-T2), Cable (DVB-C), Satellite (DVB-S2), 3D Ready, Ethernet, HDMI x4, Time Shift, USB 2.0 x2, USB 3.0, Integrated WiFi

DVB-T2 is used in Britain for Freeview HD "As of 2014, it was implemented in broadcasts in the United Kingdom (Freeview HD)"

Will give them a call tomorrow.

Anthonysinclair,

Did you contant LG?? Did they give you anymore info...

Does anyone know if the smart functions from an imported TV will work normally in the UK? I know there can sometimes be issues with licensing. It would be a shame to get a great TV at a great price but find you don't get the same smart functions as f you bought a UK model.

Also I don't know if it helps but Samsung have additional prefixes to the model number the signify which country it was original intended for.

For example UE48H8000 is a standard international Samsung model number but The full model number UE48H8000SZXZT signifies it is an Italian model. I wonder if it is the same for LG?

Sorry I meant suffixes not prefixes!

Hi g4gazmo, I contacted both LG and PIXMania.

This TV is a EU/UK model which means the warranty can be extended. My product is now being dispatched.

To be honest, so far so good with Pixmania, they have been polite over the phone and the process has transitioned well.

Looks like that is because it is being sold by IPERPrice through Pixmania and not by Pixmania direct

Received a call from the courier, will be delivered this week ! Excited is an understatement ;)

Ill let you guys know full details when it arrives.P.S Pixmania have sold out and price has drastically risen.

The LG 49UB850V is not only the worst 4K TV we’ve tested, it’s also one of the worst-performing televisions we’ve reviewed to date in terms of image quality. Its subpar picture performance is made all the more difficult to accept by the display’s retail price of £1500. Sure, it’s 4K (even that’s not strictly true considering the significant drop in resolution with movement), but there exist many other critical elements of picture quality including contrast ratio, shadow detail and motion handling, and the UB850 flunked the majority of them.

Image-wise, the only two positive things we can say about the 49-inch UB850V is that its viewing angles are wide by LED LCD standards, and that bright scenes look fairly good in a room with a moderate amount of ambient light. If LG harbours aspirations of establishing itself as a premium AV brand, the company needs to quickly understand the importance of video accuracy before it can change public perception and be taken seriously by the videophile community. Maybe that’s why LG are the only manufacturer ploughing ahead with OLED TV (and we applaud them for it) – it’s almost as if they HAVE to, given the severe contrast limitations of IPS LCD panel.
