Maybe have a look for reviews of 2019's 7000PLC, it's the exact same TV. This model is just a re-release.

Don't expect miracles, it's LG's lowest-end 4K TV. The panel is dim, the contrast ratio and black levels are also quite poor. The UM7400 series is quite a bit better, and around the same price.

Who cares.

I loved the description!
Can’t figure out if it has an eARC HDMI port that is needed to take advantage of a Dolby atmos soundbar (thinking ahead here). It looks like it might be a standard ARC port.

While it seems bizarre in 2020 that a TV wouldn't have eARC the innards of this model are quite a few years old so it seems to be standard ARC.
Do the low end LG 4K TVs still output only 2.8k resolution?

So, TV guys. What’s the best TV you can get for sub £1000? Ideally sub £750! Asking for a friend!
FAMILYGUY12/06/2020 09:39

Nope, 2160p full 4k.

They shouldn’t be advertising as 4k unless it’s actually 4K.

I think they were able to get away with this on some of their old “UHD” TV’s, but only if they didn’t state 4K in the product branding.

This TV isn't 'great', and definitely wont be what OP is after with a budget of £750-£1000

Look out for offers on Panasonic TX-55GZ950B or the LG OLED55B9, both which can be had within your budget.

For that sort of money you want be looking at an OLED panel which most definitely are great, offer an amazing viewer experience and come feature packed

I'm sure LG still did this in 2018 on their sets advertised as 4K UHD.

I'd pop for Richer Sounds Sony 55" - at £699 with 5yr warranty it boasts 100/120hz and a full 10 bit panel and is as top of the range as you're gonna get at that price tbh... and also supports HLG, PROPER HDR10 and Dolby Vision with six years warranty!

Got this TV on a previous deal and am really happy with it. For my untrained eyes it's a major step up from my old Samsung HD LCD, and the OS is pretty quick. The magic remote is also good and I can replicate my main sky+ features on it.
I want a good enough 4k TV with propper HDR that will work well with the PS5 when I end up getting it, I've got a Samsung 49" curved 4K, that cost me £550 about 3 years ago and it's OK but the HDR definitely isn't any good.
Any recommendations under £500?

That's a great price for a full 10bit panel. Only problem with Sony is their buggy OS. Can't touch LG for Web OS and range of streaming apps.

You won't get a decent HDR experience under £500 I'm afraid. Best bet may be to look for 2018/2019 mid range LCD's from Sony/Samsung to see if you can find a deal. Even then I've not seen any near £500.

Regardless I'd take the Sony every day. Easy enough to use a console to handle the rest.. in my case anyway. The specs are easily future proofed to handle the next gens
You get an extra year warranty with Richer Sounds. But after 5 years would you want a bigger better tV? I suppose this comes down to delivery costs and how quickly it can be delivered? Maybe preference of company, I like both of these, John Lewis could do with a hand just now.
No bluetooth? That’s semi-smart. Any deals about that have similar to this with bluetooth capabilities?
Does this come with the Magic Remote?
How does this compare to the one I bought from John Lewis which appeared on here...

Nice tip thx
Don't change their design much do they LG?

Looks same as design from 2019 and 2018.

They look cheap in the flesh and the small legs barely support the weight as they're quite thick too by modern standards.

Looks a good deal, seems pretty poor on energy efficiency though, wonder why that is?
Yeah, perhaps the double refresh and full 10 bit panel pops it up a bit. I'm no expert though, but saving the planet aside I'm fine paying a few £'s extra for leccy bills whilst getting an almost perfect 4K picture with plenty of depth.

Sure beats ordinary 4K.. had a Toshiba with the bells and whistles and I ended up selling it on and going back to my 1080p Samsung purely on it's proper 100/120hz refresh. It's 3D, shame that was a passing fad as it looks outstanding as well...
Is the 55UN81006LB that’s currently at Costco for £665 much better?

Oh I see, don’t think I could notice a difference.
Great deal! Those with employer discount schemes can save about 5%. Unfortunately mine doesn't give me such discounts, but I saved £20 buying this TV by paying for a £1 trial from a company called supercard blue. I will cancel the trial once my tv arrives. supercardblue.com/cmp…ak8
