Should be *real* 4K - the ones to avoid are the UH6100 and UH6400 series:

No LG does 'real 4k' due to their odd pixel array.

RGBW is fine - it just means you have four sub-pixels per pixel - the problem is with certain LG models where they replace some of the RGB sub-pixels with a W sub-pixel - if you read the article:

In the case of the three LG TVs mentioned above however, the RGBW mechanism is used instead and with this, instead of adding a white subpixel to its regular range of RGB subpixels in each of the UH6100, UH6400 and UF6800 TVs, LG completely replaces every fourth red, green or blue subpixel with purely white one in these TVs. As a result, out of every four regular full pixels in the TV display, three are missing whole key colors for quality ultra HD image rendering.

OK - I will be the first to admit, I have no idea about TV's.

I need a good display and hdmi ports.

Both my BT and Sky Q boxes apparently do ultra HD on at least one channel.

Our current TV is around 10 years old however is a good flatscreen Samsung that cost just over £1000 then.

However I see this is 599 or 499 for the 49 inch - is the extra 6 inches really worth £100?

What however is the difference between this and the £999 Samsung UE55KS7000 - both are Smart 4k Ultra HD HDR - so to me (and probably the wife) they are the same!

I am leaning towards the LG as it is much cheaper, and whenever we stay in hotels LG screens tend to look much brighter.

Thanks!

The 55ks7000 is a uhd premium certified tv with a 10 bit panel, hdr 1000and uhd dimming technologies to give you great blacks and shadow detail. The LG is a basic 4k tv with fake hdr and possibly rgbw pixels. I would say the ks7000 is a far better television and what hifi have given it the award for best tv under £1500

You can't really compare a £599 TV with a £1500 TV though, different price range.

Get the £599 LG, it's not just the screen size, the pixel counts is higher as well. Just went into Currys today and was in the same dilemma. Ended up buying this tonight after seeing it in store and was impressed with picture quality.

It's not *proper* HDR - that requires a 10-bit panel (to show 1 billion colours rather than 16.7 million so no more banding) and also 1000-nit brightness - this TV will be under 400. This TV will recognise an HDR signal and alter the picture but it can only display within its limitations of 8-bit panel and lower brightness.

got the which review on the tv base on it being £799. Odd that the smaller size panels get higher scores ahich I think is due to them being cheaper, i'm getting used to the TV from a plasma, black is not black and I don't have the 1000's to get an oled which is a shame. On the whole it sounds good and picture is nice.

Fails to meet high expectations 59%

Launched 01 April 2016

Tested 07 October 2016

While it's far from the most expensive TV in LG's 2016 range, the 55UH668V doesn't scrimp on features. With support for 4K HDR content plus access to the Freeview Play system, there's hardly a thing missing. But does it impress in the lab? Find out in our expert LG 55UH668V review.
Pros
Loads of features including Freeview Play, straightforward to use
Cons
Lacklustre picture and sound

For a TV in this price range, this LG has an impressive list of features. But a TV can't be judged on this alone. When it comes to performance, the picture and sound quality are rather lacklustre.

What is it?

A 55-inch non-curved LG. You'll find higher-end TVs in LG's line-up, but you still get support for the latest 4K content on this one - that's the ultra-high definition resolution that's becoming more widely available on streaming services and Sky Q. You can also watch 4K HDR (high dynamic range), which is designed to give brighter whites, darker blacks and more subtlety of tones in between. But supporting content for this format remains sparse - you'll only find a few shows on Netflix and Amazon, and a dozen or so films on Blu-ray, which require a compatible UHD Blu-ray player.

The built-in wi-fi receiver lets you access the set's smart features, such as catch-up and streaming apps, straight from the box, without the need for a dongle - but note that subscriptions to these services come at an additional cost. The TV has both a Freeview HD tuner and Freesat-licensed satellite HD tuner. If you connect a USB storage device, you can use the PVR (person video recorder) feature to record the shows you miss.

This LG comes with the so-called 'magic' remote, which uses voice commands and a motion-sensitive cursor. It also has sound designed by audio specialist Harman Kardon - a feature found on some of LG's higher-end sets.

What's the picture quality like?

Fairly mediocre across the board. The LG will hardly blow you away with stunning colours. Although there's plenty fine detail in both HD and 4K pictures, the contrast is a little too soft to really make that detail pop. Instead, the shadows aren't dark enough and the highlights aren't bright enough, leaving it looking a little foggy - like your well-worn favourite T shirt after it's been through the wash a few too many times.

It displays motion fairly well, though; it doesn't struggle with fast-paced sports or even long panning shots, so should be fine for everyday TV watching. The viewing angle is also nice and wide if you want to invite friends over to watch a film or the football.

How about the sound?

Pretty poor. Without the depth in the bass, the sound is sharp and shrill, lacking the richness that's needed for atmospheric drama scores. Instead, everything sounds like a generic game show jingle - think less Broadchurch, more Blankety Blank.

That said, it is easily improved using the HDMI ARC port or digital audio output, via which you can simply plug in a sound bar or home cinema system. There's also Bluetooth, so you can connect a compatible sound bar wirelessly.

Is there anything I should look out for?

Getting started is fairly straightforward, and you'll have few problems tuning in the Freeview channels and sorting them into your preferred order.

The electronic programme guide (EPG) is sluggish to load but, once it's up and running, the layout is nice. There's a picture-in-picture display so you can follow what you were watching while browsing the guide and detailed information on what each programme is about. This TV also gives you access to the Freeview Play system, which integrates catch-up apps and seven-day scroll-back into the EPG - the complete system will be available from winter 2016.

You get only one remote, but it's LG's smart remote. It's nicely designed, a good size and fits in your hand comfortably. The buttons are well labelled and arranged, with plenty of physical keys so you don't have to rely on the sometimes-fiddly on-screen controls. The pointer feature, which works a bit like an on-screen mouse, is useful for clicking on icons and tabs. If you misplace the remote, there's a four-way cursor key on the front of the TV, giving full access to the main menus.

Is there anything else I should know?

LG's webOS smart-TV service, which debuted in 2014, features a colourful launcher bar that pops up when you press the smart button, giving quick access to new and recently used apps in clickable tabs. Navigation is simple and intuitive but, while it's easy to recognise apps such as Netflix, other services and features, such as the EPG, aren't so readily recognisable at first.

You get only three HDMI ports, rather than the four that most premium TVs offer. There's no Scart socket, so bear that in mind if you want to connect an older, standard-definition device such as a VCR. The connections aren't very well placed, particularly if you wall-mount the TV, as you'll need to reach around the back of the screen to find them.

If you connect a USB storage device using one of the two USB ports, you can use the single-tuner PVR (personal video recorder) feature. Despite a woeful introduction to the functionality, once you're up to speed, it's nice and easy to schedule recordings or find recorded programmes to watch (by date or alphabetical order). You can also pause live TV.

Should I buy it?

With competition in this price range from the superb 2016 Samsung 6-series TVs - all of which are either Best Buys or very nearly Best Buys - the LG needs something special to mix it with the pack leaders. In reality, its performance is disappointing, with lacklustre picture and sound quality from a TV that promises a lot more.

I purchased mine two weeks ago for £599. I had to do an 80 mile round trip to another store to collect as local Currys had no stock.

Overall very impressed for the price. This was to replace a 5 year old 42" LG 3D smart tv. This unit wipes the floor with the old one. I like everything about it. The Web os 3 and smart remote work really well and a lot of thought has gone into menu systems. Movie playback is great, can format an external hdd and record onto it. Have played Xbox One Call of Duty infinite warfare and although input lag is obviously not like a gaming monitor it is no where near the delay of my old set which made fps games virtually impossible to compete. I have tried a couple of 4k demo snippets and they look stunning. I would recommend this tv for anyone looking for a large screen with good connectivity and good smart system. If this gives me 5 years of good service like the last one Oled sets will be close to these prices by then.
