Updating post with new low price £899 - thanks Smelly_Pickle

This is a great tele. I bought one and been playing around with all 'Smart' features for two weeks. Besides the price, things of interest are:
- Deep colour: two HDMI ports can support 10bit YUV 4:4:4
- HDMI 2.0 & HDCP 2.2
- Multi Channel Audio out / pass through via ARC to AV Receiver
- Can use LG 'EZ Adjust' (service mode) to adjust many features; one of them is to change region to US and download apps only available in US (e.g. Hulu Plus) and then revert to UK for normal use - the apps from other regions stays.

Look here for full feature set: http://www.lg.com/uk/tvs/lg-55UF860V

They are not same. High Dynamic Range or Deep Colour (10bit Cclour depth for Video compared to conventional 8bit) is the key difference. Samsung's JS9 and JS8 series are the other products with same feature - but twice expensive. One has to play deep colour video to realise the difference. Manufactures has different name for this technology; Samsung refers it as 'Nano Crystal Color' and LG refers it as 'COLOURPRIME' - both in lay man terms means wider gamut of colour.

Any professional reviews?

2 HDMI ports....... why don't they make it at least 3 as standard on new tellys

I couldn't find any professional reviews for this model. I personally tested Samsung JS9000 (at work) & LG UF860V (at home) using demo contents from http://www.demo-uhd3d.com/categorie.php?tag=10bits & http://www.demo-uhd3d.com/categorie.php?tag=hdr

It has 3xHDMI ports but only 2 of them are HDCP 2.2 as per LG customer care - I am not authoritative on this info though.

I was choosing between this model and the Sony kd55x8509.
In the end went for Sony as lg had slight motion issues from what I was seeing. Viewing angle seems better on lg as I'm sure they are using ips panels. Sony uses va panel so you need to be seated closer to the middle of the screen to get best image. Problem with ips panel is that it takes a hit on the black levels.

Because if you can afford this much for a tele then use it properly. You only need one hdmi and everything goes through an av receiver or splitter.

This is much more efficient as wires are easier to manage (just one plus power cable to deal with even with 5+ HDMI devices), particularly if the tele is wall mounted or similar

How are you finding the Sony? I've got one coming tomorrow.My main concern is banding and backlight bleed with it being Edge Lit.
#13
Pic quality is very good on Sony.
The edge bleed is there but not as bad as the lg. But be warned the set is a little buggy with the android software. But firmware updates are regular. I've heard some features like USB recording don't work and satellite tuner is not great. But I don't use those features. I'm having problems with WiFi. But I think mine is ip related. Free playstation controller if ordered with in the next few days.

The KD55x is a great set in comparison to LG and Samsung equivalents. LG's panels are dire even at 4k and their smart driven content is really poor, I wouldn't touch one of these with YOUR ten foot barge pole, they also seemed to have spent all their R&D budget on a Nintendo Wii style remote and not put any other money into developing their smart driven content OR their panel picture quality. The GUI finish is also a tad clunky and pixellated for my liking and just reminds me *shudder* of a Minecraft style finish. Not good LG (perhaps they should re-brand to "NG" instead of LG?).

Whilst Samsung's SUHD TV is a nice panel, in comparison to what Sony get out of their panels, there isn't much to compete with. The ironic thing is that Sony buy their panels from Samsung, but their boffins and processors manage to tweak the panels just that little bit better for quality of colour and contrast depth. With Samsung, if you have a dark scene in a movie, it is really dark, whereas Sony can get a better contrast and detail out of an equivalent dark scene from their panels. Sony have a USB recording firmware update planned for before Christmas and the YouView function is due imminently. I've recently spoken to a rep from Sony about this,and,even though it is slightly overdue (Sony said Summer 2015) they said that a firm release date for a firmware update will be inside of this month. Sony are very very good at releasing firmware OTA updates and also will spend a lot of time with you doing firmware updates etc and system tweaks if you have a problem. Plus, their sets are pretty much futureproof with the inclusion of an Android O.S, whereas you might lag a little with Samsung due to their own custom O.S. Whilst some people may have problems with their Android O.S, I myself haven't encountered many system fallovers or hangs with their Smart range (I work with these sets every day in sales). Samsung, whilst very good with their 8-88yrs Smart driven content just haven't seemed to have made that leap for user cross platform compatibility.

Sony are taking massive chunks out of the Smart market at the moment and Samsung could be in danger of going the way of LG and Panasonic (yeesh) if they're not careful. Yes, they have 8k and 16k planned for release and some MONSTER sets also planned for release (110" 16k was the last offing I saw from them in the latest Tech news), but with not many people being able to afford the monster price tag to go with the monster sets, I think that they're driving areas of their AV business that may be a little White Elephant.

Notice I haven't really mentioned Panasonic? There's a good reason for that....

Well done for introducing no technical knowledge to the thread and instead falling for a marketing gimmick.

SUHD isn't a thing, it's just a branding exercise carried out by Samsung to label up their higher tier models. The S doesn't stand for anything, much like the Galaxy S phones they also manufacture.

So this is one of LGs best non OLED, flat TVs, so by spending "this amount of money" on this TV you are in essence getting LGs equivalent to a Samsung SUHD TV, it's instead called a ColorPrime UHD TV.

Also this model despite specifications stating otherwise supports HDR content.

Absolutely fantastic TV (it's my second venture into UHD TVs) and couldn't recommend it more.

I also wouldn't touch a PR emium Samsung product with a barge pole as they're all built from the cheapest flimsiest components and materials going.

I'm pretty sure time doesn't have any relevance to factual incorectness. But thanks, I do try! ;)

This will be a bit late but I manage to snag this from John Lewis for £799 as a display model. While I am a big Samsung fan and watched the Martian with HDR on a Samsung curved TV at the time, the price and picture of the LG was outstanding. If this deal does pop up again I couldn't recommend it more. My only grip would be SD TV does look weak on it. But I stream most things using Plex Netflix or Amazon so very happy.
