I have a 4K 64EF950V OLED in my front room and a 55EC930V ( 1080p ) OLED in my bedroom. I have owned a new tv basically every year for the past 9 or so years and then faulty swaps etc on top of that, so thats lots of televisions. I also spent around 7 years working in a TV / Hifi shop. So I would like to think I have a pretty good knowledge of televisions and available tech.

Simply put, OLED is by *far* the best tv tech around it has perfect blacks, great motion and 180 degree viewing angles with no loss of quality at extreme angles.

I have recently bought a PS4 pro, I have a PC with a pretty powerful GTX1080 and I7 6700K so I am about as 4K ready as you can possibly be. 4K is a huge fad, nothing runs it, content which is not 4k gets scaled and running native resolutions even puts a lot of strain on high end PCs. Media boxes don't support 4K and streamed 4k is barely better than an original 1080p Bluray disk AND this is all at 65" at around 4 meters away.

On this basis, I would highly recommend this television ignore the fact it isn't 4k and enjoy one of the best pictures available for the price!

C'mon people if u want 4k Oled you'd still have to spend twice as much.

This is a 1080p set, why drone on about 4k when it's not relevant to this deal?

If I bought this TV ..or any TV over a grand...I would like it to last minimum 5 years.
It's all well and good saying no 4k or hdr content is around at the minute. The speed things are progressing..and which more high quality content is being released is accelerating. Soon every major channel will be 4k..every TV show shot in 4k....every stream will be 4k...every youtuber will be 4k..every film will be 4k...every major gaming console will be 4k
Today this TV won't be beat..
In a year or two you might be regretting it's 1080p...in 5 years you definitely will.
This is a great TV that you would spend £1k because it has a stunning picture, but is not future proof.
Finally we are a couple of weeks shy of black Friday...now is not the time to buy.
I await the "1080p is enough" fanboy hatred
Personally, i feel HD is absolutely fine for a TV of this size, and if contemplating going to 4k you need to look at a bigger TV or ideally a projector to make the most of it.
As for Black Friday, i very much doubt many OLED TV's will have significant discounts, they are very difficult to manufacture and LG have the market cornered on this technology, 4k OLED is what most people ideally want, no reason to lower the prices too much?
You may be able to find a 4k LCD/LED TV for a good bargain though as the market is flooded with various brands
It's £1000 pounds down the drain as 4k is the current standard. 1080p is already finished. If you already have Oled TV it may not matter. But to anyone buying new TV, please don't buy this old rubbish. If you look on the Internet on sites like eBay and gumtree, you may get perfectly working second hand 1080p TV at much discounted price as every one is buying 4k and trying to get rid of their old 1080p TVs.

What utter nonsense, current standard?? no chance! there is still very little 4k content around, and most people won't see the difference at 55" anyway

My first 4k TV was 55" and i mostly watched 1080i (and lower) broadcasts on it, blurays were of course 1080p
and Netlix doesn't have a massive amount of 4k stuff tbh, so i was barely seeing anything in 4k. What a waste!

There is 4k bluray now and it is ridden with DRM thanks to AACS 2.0, and little chance they will allow PC playback anytime soon, all helping to hamper sales and there are very few 4k broadcasts, will be a good few years yet before this becomes 'standard'.

The problem is people are spending 1k on a poor 4k TV, this TV will outshine most budget 4k LED TV's, it's as simple as that.

Also, they keep finding ways of making your TV obsolete, this time round it's HDR, what next Ultra HDR? then 8k, the technology moves much faster than the content.

Maybe this may have value one day as vintage like they do for very old mainframe computers and cars . First generation 1080p Oled screen made by LG. Now all the boxes are 4k, what will you connect it with without hdmi 2.0, Hdr and hevc?

I'm sure it's perfectly fine provided the viewing distance is right.

Unfortunately some will be sitting 2m from it, A bit like putting 20" wheels on a super mini.

Urm, yeah, they don't make non-4k screen any more and all the other features are mandatorys.. New tech makes old obsolete overnight.

I've been following this model a while and from what I've read and seen this tv is the dogs ****, anyone that thinks there Argos 4K or any other 4K (apart from OLED) is superior to this must be on crack.
Yes it's not bang perfect but for replacing plasma it's best your going to get troops.

I'll await 4K and HDR is better comments ha ha ha

Only 1 year tho is poor but its first time I've seen it this low, Currys were asking £1300 ish a while ago and richer sounds are out of stock now

Rs do have a few in the shops, but i do not think they will match the price due to the 1 year guarantee with amazon? think it has to be 5 year with the seller?

So tempted! Don't think I'd be able to get away with spending near £1K on a TV though :( Might've taken my chances with the Amazon Warehouse one if it was still available.

I think you'll find this is third generation, not first. It is the successor to the 55EG930V, which was LG's second generation model.

The colour reproduction on this more than compensates for the lack of 4K.

Xbox One S and other uhd players can play 4k blue ray. 4k blue ray can play original 4k Hdr content without compression. All the new movies now come in 4k /uhd blue ray format. Also compression is not all that bad as all the media content on Internet is compressed to save bandwidth.

And the adoption of an Xbox One S is?.....The point im trying push here is that everyone says oh you need 4K this and HDR that...Fact is there is no real 4K standard still and nor is there for HDR so why the rush to get one?

Then you've got the issue with the content available, everybody isn't going to go out to re-obtain their entire collection are they...then you've got the issue with streaming services not really doing a true 4K experience...Yes its compressed...and its not THAT bad but if you're buying a 4K tv surely you want a proper 4K experience not a sort of 4K....Just saying.

The dots on 1080p screen will not get any smaller even with the best 1080p screen to accommodate for more information in the 4k signal. Also it will be incompatible with all 4k format as it does not hdmi 2.0 or displayport which has higher bandwidth connection between the box and TV. 4k tv can show 1080p brilliantly but it is not the other way around. Now all boxes are 4k so it is like throwing money down the drain.

No need to spend on 4k Oled. Mobile phones come with both oled/amoled and Lcd yet no one hardly cares as they cost the same. In TVs oleds are very expensive and apart from LG and Samsung no one makes them in bulk , so some people with lots of money buy them to differentiate them from everyone else. I don't see lot of difference in picture now as I have 4k tv. If you not rich to buy 4k Oled today , then just buy a normal 4k Lcd TV with Hdr and you can watch everything out there and connect with all 4k boxes available today and tomorrow. Once tv oled screens are mass produced like TV Lcd screens today and have price parity like in mobile, you can buy either.

4k is a set of technologies. Apart from the 4k screen, the connection between the box and TV is also better due to hdmi 2.0.. The content is in hevc format. It is protected by hdcp 2.0 from piracy. 4k tv can play 1080p but not the other way around. All the boxes are 4k now. You won't want to miss the action because of slow Internet connection as movies have started coming in 4k blue ray format. Internet speed is only relevant when streaming . If you are just downloading and watching or watching 4k blue ray , you can watch the same with slow connection speed.

So take me for instance, I'm a Pioneer Kuro owner...I have the DEEPEST blacks pretty much of any LCD...why would I go to a 4k panel with inferior blacks to my Kuro, which years down the line most LCD's still can't beat (check hdtv test)???

Why would I invest in 4K if the standards aren't set yet?...You look at all the different standards including HDR..you can't future proof anything in 4K..

If you watch any standard blu ray film or stream (which lets face it, most of us do in 1080 here, not 4K, 4K 3D, etc, you WILL notice a difference between OLED and a LCD panel at 1080p.

In my eyes if you need a TV for RIGHT now, you get the best 1080p you can get Kuro, VIERA TX-50CX802B or OLED...If you must have 4K for some reason, you're walking into a period of uncertainty where you don't know if Dolby Vision is the new standard or HDR 10, or what constitutes as Ultra HD.

I play Dark Knight movie on my Kuro and everyone is in awe...my mate plays it on his Bravia X85..The blacks look grey....Just saying...

Come on seriously, I know it's my opinion against yours but the picture quality on all these oleds is stunning. More isn't always better and these screens will keep working until they break.
4K and HDR is the future yes, but we're still not there yet and these won't be incompatible with anything. There's no mandatory 4k, Sky, consoles and any other source will still work perfectly and give a great picture.
When was the last time a new version of HDMI or HDCP actually forced anyone to upgrade their TV?

There a plenty of 4k screens on the market with a massively inferior build quality and image quality to these.

What if you were in the market for new TV and choice was between this 1080p Oled and ordinary 4k TV with Hdr . Then 4k is definitely better. But as you can wait for more time as you have a very good TV, then you are ok as you are. But those looking for new TV today and cannot wait for the rest of their life or even few months néed to make decision soon. Who knows what will happen in 5 years time with 4k as technology keeps on getting better and 4k Oled may cost the same as 4k Lcd today.

I've got the ec930v which is essentially the same model which was a released a year before.

Excellent TV, OLED is in a league of it's own. Movies look spectacular and even everyday mundane shows like X Factor or the Chase look breathtaking.
