just picked this exact tv up from sainsburys tonight now setting it up.
#2
Got mine from Very.co.uk for the same price using a new customer code, with 12 months interest free too. For some reason you can't actually find the TV in the LG support area, but can be found on the general website. Wanted to download the manual before unpacking and setting up to replace an existing wall mounted TV.
#3
Let me know what its like guys. Need to convince the wife we need another TV (_;) sorry about the photo of the shelf edge ticket its not come out too good and don't know how to edit it.

not sure if it helps but the 42UB820V gets a which rating of 74% and is classed as a best buy.
#5
Looks nice; no 3d I assume
#6
Not sure what the difference is between the B or V on the end but there are more reviews on the 42ub820V model. Yes it is 2d not 3d
#7

#8

Good price but going to wait for affordable 4K OLED's.
#11
after using this tv it is great, only negative i have so far is the stand as i had to get a tv stand to fit the tv as this is for my bedroom, games had no noticeable input lag when playing cod, assassins creed or fifa, smart tv works well and isnt sluggish or difficult. its not 3d but that doesnt matter to me. my flatmate is well impressed and wants his own one. sound is decent too. anything else just ask
#12
Got this TV b4 Xmas. Great pic especially the limited 4k content. Even upscaling is great was worried it might not work to well. Sound is fine for me so haven't bothered using my surround sound system. Smart TV is good but has locked up a couple of times and had to restart TV. I only watch HD movies which do seem better on this TV and use Amazon Prime which has just launched some UHD shows - which are likely to have some compression for streaming but the pic looks good.

Carlisle had this last week. Also had a normal HD 42 inch LG for £249

nice find! 3D is pretty much dead in the homes anyway so no need for 3d :)

have some heat sir!
#16
prestwich store being the little one near KFC?
#17
Will netflix stream 4k to this tv? Does it have netflix, iPlayer and amazon prime?
#18
Its got the NowTv, iPlayer, Amazon, Netflix, Demand5, YouTube, Blinkbox, WuakiTv, BBC News & Sport, Internet Browser. NO ITVplayer or 4od. Also you can record live TV with external disk but not tried it as not using any live stuff. I think Netflix has some 4k stuff but again it will be compressed and not tried it as not subscribe to Netflix.
#19
Itv player and 4od available in nowtv app.

Same tv available in sprucefield

Our Tesco is selling one at this price, too.

There is one fly in the ointment, and that is the "fudged" partial HDMI 2.0 upgrade. It seems this set supports 4k60p using colour sub-sampling. This is one of the features of HDMI 2.0, but the set does not support the other features. So it is stuck between HDMI 1.4 and HDMI 2.0 in a mode that is not standardised and that may very well be incompatible with HDMI sources.

The on board HVEC decoder seems to suffer from the same problem, it only supports 30p. So you can probably get 4k Netflix, but only in 30p.

For me, that is a compromise too far.
#21
Thanks OP.

Interesting discussions on 4k.

I'm going to wait for some content to watch
#23
Good for 1080p,but at that screen size,you wont really notice the UHD,need at least a 50" to notice the difference.

Not sure - B is next to V on a keyboard so could be a typo??? Can't see any legit specs, prices or reviews for B anywhere.

Another thing is that it could be a Sainsbury's exclusive model with a teenie weaker spec??? - e.g. it may have one less HDMI socket or it may not include the LG Smart Remote, so worth checking that if you're in store. IF it is in fact the V model and you're near a Richer Sounds or John Lewis, head there and you should be able to get them to price match, and get 5 yr warranty for free.

nice tv and nice comments especially the reviews!

You'll be waiting a while! This technology will be obsolete before it gets cheap. It's too expensive to produce
#27
Comes with Smart remote but you can download LG app for your phone that does all the smart controller does. The box says its a 42UB820V not B on mine anyway. I also read about the no point in 4k if its less than 50", but I sit about 6-7ft away and I've noticed a far better pic than my 42" Panasonic plasma or perhaps I've just fallen for the its a 4k TV placebo effect.

Any point in using a 4k TV, such as this, as a PC monitor? Is it common for laptops to be able to make use of the resolution? Would the resolution be rubbish if your eyes are only 3 feet away from it?

Whats the point of 4k if nothing we watch is 4k?

One of the reviews on Amazon:-

"Such a clear screen it actually felt like i was inside her vagina!!!"
Makes you wonder what they were watching X)
#31
Netflix 4k is a 15.7 Meg stream (if my memory' serves correctly) there should be very little compression involved, I've watched part of a house of cards season two 4k netflix stream & the quality blew me away.

I'm yet to see any scene releases of netflix 4k Rips but they'll come soon enough, so if you use torrents or usenet (as I assume most people do these days) then 4k content will be plentiful.

All that said, I personally wouldn't swap my 1080p plasma for anything less than an OLED screen as I hate lcd/ led screens, so I'll be waiting a while for them to drop to a reasonable price.

If you don't watch loads of sport so aren't bothered by the motion blur of an lcd screen than this is a great deal though, so have some heat.

Do some research, that comment was true a year ago.

If you Google LG M2 OLED factory you'll see they've dramatically reduced prices of production. They can produce 4k OLED 55" screens for the same price as led back-lit lcd screens.
#33
lol at the 3d is dead. Must be on your say so then. Bit of a fleeting statement that. Perhaps you need to check out the BR 3D sales then? I don't know where to get the answer, but I do find it odd that people say so, possibly because you don't buy them. I do.
However heat added as this is a worthy TV for the money.

Upscale all of your favourite entertainment to ULTRA HD 4K-like quality with LG’s True 4K Engine."

According to the Curry's website so it will upscale for you.

LG = Cold from me.

Sorry OP but LG has been lagging behind others for a long time now.

IMO better waiting for the prices of Samsung and Sony to come down in price than buy this rubbish.

because the panel isn't made by LG, made cheaply using a third party company!

I'll take your word for it that its a rubbish TV I haven't seen it working "live" like you have. But I guess there aren't many 4K TV's around at this price.

Affordable 4K and OLED in the same sentance, good luck wi that one:p

Any point in using a 4k TV, such as this, as a PC monitor?
4k as a PC monitor, yes, I think a 4K 28-30" monitor is fine for gaming but a bit pointless as a Windows desktop as everything becomes so tiny by default. If you bump Windows scaling to make it easily readable, why not just stay with a 1080p 22-24" monitor?
I've had this exact TV as a 4k monitor and have been won over by the 40" size, because you can use native Windows 100% scaling and enjoy 4x the pixels and area - useful if you program or have other workflows with many windows. You'll need a decent sized desk though!

This particular TV though isn't great as a PC monitor as it has 4:2:0 chroma which gives coloured fringes and fuzziness, and for sharpness, you really need 4:4:2 chroma which comes on more expensive sets (This TV comes up regularly, and I posted screen grabs so you can see).

Is it common for laptops to be able to make use of the resolution?
No, unless the laptop has mDP or DP output. Normally only 1440p or 1600p rather than 2180p (UHD) which this is. However look for PiP and PbP which enable you to see the outputs of 2-4 computers on the one screen in their own logical windows, so you can hook up your laptop and desktop etc.

Would the resolution be rubbish if your eyes are only 3 feet away from it?
No, just fine at 100% Windows scaling. Only snag I found was the cursor can't be seen. You can sort that by enabling mouse trails and choosing a bigger mouse icon.
