Outstanding price for an OLED, beats most 4K TVs for picture quality and motion.

I recently bought this for £999 to replace a Samsung KS7000 due to motion issues, and this far surpasses that in all ways bar peak brightness. Colours, black levels and motion are considerably better making for a much more pleasurable watching experience.

This is also a very competent TV for gaming, the only negative spec is input lag, which I have never found to be an issue. Gameplay is so much more responsive and smooth on this compared to the KS7000 which is supposed to be one of the best TVs for gaming (but is choppy and jerky down to terrible motion handing).

I had real reservations paying 4K TV money for a 1080p screen, but I can honestly say I don't regret it, unless you are going to pay £1600 plus for 4K OLED (I would if I could), then this really is the best TV for the money. Watching grand tour on this on 1080, was every bit as good as 4K on the Samsung, although a very small amount of visible detail was lost, colours and motion are more important to me. By the time 4K content is readily available I'm sure the 4K OLED tech will be affordable anyway!

Just couldnt recommend any new tv that isnt 4k / hdr enabled, even if you have to wait another 12 months for 2016 oleds to come down in price


People get far too hung up on resolution alone, the picture quality on this is far better than 90% of 4K TVs at this price. Even if your TV was 8K it doesn't guarantee good accurate blacks and colours as well as decent motion handling.

Great TV.

Wow! I'd be told off for buying a TV as mine is only about 2 years old but I'm hoping this time next year the current B6 or E6 OLED are this kinda price
#3
If only this were a little smaller :( I'm looking at 49" max, ideally 43"ish - if anyone has any buy now recommendations (other than sit tight for the post CEX discounting) I would be grateful. Would be happy with non-4k Freeview HD and even non smart if need be. Like this supersized monster.

great price, going to wait a bit longer on the b6 for the hdr, nice to hear thoughts on the ks7000, reviews are so good but i noticed in store the demo was juddering all over the place. Does sd footage look very good on these? Currently on a 42 inch tv so bit worried 55 inch will look to stretched

Great TV.


This will always have pixellation error due to big size of the pixels. Watch near it and see squares rectangles, trapezium and other quadrilateral shapes in perfect colour without seeing the actual picture. If you sit far away the mosaic might make sense in its entirety.

Hi, as you probably know any SD content isn't going to look amazing at this screen size, although what I can say is that the SD content is far more watchable on this than both 4K TVs I returned. The hisense k5510 I had first was abysmal, the Samsung was also very poor. I would say that SD content looks good, but only good (although SD TV is the only source of this, haven't tried DVDs ect.) HD content looks great though!

Why would you sit close to a 55 inch TV oO

Heated, good price but if you are interested in 4k Netflix, Amazon, tivo v6, sky Q, xbox one s and PS4 pro you might quickly regret buying one

You"ve convinced yourself so nothing i say will matter, 4k content has gone from a dribble to a trickle and soon a flood, hdr is as important if not more so than the last resolution uplift. Not all 4k tvs have judder issues and black levels are massively improved in new models.

In another 4 months with launch of 2017 tvs, i think 2016 4k hdr oleds will be sub 1k at 55inch size

Ive said in a few threads all current tv tech has faults, i think all a bit of a con at minute, its limiting as many of those faults thats important, i would take resolution over better blacks personally

Each to their own! If OLED 4K TVs drop to below £1k I will be picking one up!, but I'm not so sure. As LG are the only real OLED manufactures they can set the pricing. And only when models are discontinued such as this will we likely see discounts. Sony and Panasonic have released an OLED TV both with LG panels I believe, but are even more expensive. As for 4K content, I really don't see it becoming more mainstream for a few more years. We don't even have many 1080p channels and a lot of the country still doesn't have access to internet fast enough to stream 4K. What do we know anyway, no one can predict the future. This is an excellent TV regardless!

Great price recommended this to a friend last year who paid £999 one of the most impressive TV's at the moment. 4K is not worth it until you get native 4K quality and we still will be waiting sometime before that is the norm.

Which is a valid point, however ppl tend to keep tvs for about 5 years if not longer, so cant recommend this as out of date with current specs, if was a throw away product its a great buy but £900 is a heavy investment

There is no reason why this can't be used and enjoyed for the next 5 years. People are still using their 8 or 9 year old 720p plasmas because of the great picture quality they provide! Is that any different to this?

I wouldn't have recommended that either! Just as i wouldn't have recommended you buying the hisense and i can def pick fault with the tv i have as well! Im not an oled hater, i like the tech but as i said if had to buy right now would buy resolution over black levels at this cross over point, or as said if you can wait for the 2017 tvs and see what the discounts are on the 2016s

I do agree, I contemplated on just going all out and getting the C6, but the reality for me was that I couldn't justify the £800 difference for my intended uses. Out of interest what TV do you have?
Like you after going through a 55" samsung x2 terrible light bleed, 55 inch lg 850v no light bleed but no hdr over hdmi, settled on panasonic 58 dx802, love the 58inch size, 65 to big my lounge especially with 104inch screen from mem 4 for projector. I got the panasonic for 1k and i know only 8 bit panel and not brightest for hdr and suffers a little dirty screen effect but no lightbleed, 6 months ago was best compromise as wanted 3d and really liked the os and didnt want to spend over 1k

I'm extremely tempted now to take my Samsung ue557000 back for this. bought a ps pro and Xbox one s then the TV for the 4k gaming. didn't know what hdr was so took the plunge on the Samsung being a great TV. I must admit it looks very good as a gaming TV but when I watch TV on it the colours look very washed out. I can see lots of backlight bleed on the blacks if not looking directly at the screen. since reading about the motion stutter and blur online I'm seeing it allot of it now. personally I don't see what the point of hdr is. it just hurts your eyes more. I'm trying to convince myself this oled may be a better bet. would it be right right to downscale back down to 1080 if I'm going to use the TV allot for gaming on the PS pro and xbones with no hdr?

A lot of ps4 pro game updates allow for 1080p with added textures so you would still get a benefit.

My samsungs were the worst ever owned for lightbleed i couldn't watch a movie as drove me mad, wife never noticed!

Oled arent greatest for gaming, tend to suffer more lag but depends what you play, how much you play notice.

I have always bought my tvs from john lewis as their cs is fantastic, always replaced tvs with lightbleed with no questions unlike some

To be honest the colours on this are great and really pop! I don't think you'd regret it. The only thing that would tempt me to upgrade to a 4k oled would be if the prices came down a lot next year, and the project Scorpio was a true 4k console (which I have reservations about).

That's me with the 8 yr old 720p plasma! I'm only looking at a new TV because the fancy gizmo technology is out there available, not that I need it or will ultilise all the functions. SD quality is superb and no complaints about 720p HD quality either. Best bit is I keep the £2k in my pocket.

If you only watch sd terrestrial tv, it will look better on your 720p plasma as less upscaling, sd on 4k tvs is really soft especially at anything over about 43", if you have sky hd no issues with it being upscaled to 4k

I was lucky enough to pick up the LG 55EC930V from John Lewis yesterday at only £450 (It was ex demo), and I imagine these are fairly similar. From what I have witnessed it is a great tv and freeview HD looks very good. I've not tried bluray or DVD's yet but I'm sure they are equally as good. Despite the lack of HDR and 4K I would happily recommend it to anyone not particularly bothered about those)

Very nearly got this but went for the Sammy KS7000. No juddering on any sources for me and 4k plus HDR is amazing. Wall mounted so the curve on the LG and non-standard bracket swung it. A great HD set though, just not the best for my requirements.

Bargain, the 910v is the successor to that TV, although I doubt the differences are substantial, especially for almost half the price!
#37
I've had the 930v for a while now and wouldn't change it for anything yet. 1080p OLED is plenty wonderful enough for me.

For 1080p content is this better than the KS7000?
