This is not a 10 bit panel. 10 bit panels are costly and are reserved for the top tier models.

8 bit panel = 256 shades of RED/BLUE/GREEN

10 bit panels = 1024 shades

fake 4k i think with lg
Awesome deal! Heat added

My only reservation would be the fact that everyone complains about that this tv has a RGBW panel, which puts me in two minds when deciding to purchase this or a 49inch Samsung with similar specs @ £450.

Hi. Which 49inch Samsung model do you refer for 459?

Hi. Which 49inch Samsung model do you refer for 459?


SAMSUNG UE49MU6400

It was on offer for £450 easier this month and I currently have the price match option with John Lewis, however I still haven't decided yet.

The SAMSUNG 55' version is currently cheapest at around £580 I think.
currys have it for £529. if you want to store pick up, seems a decent tv for the money. heat added

The title is mis-leading. I read it as accepting a 10bit signal but it can be confused with this TV having 10 bit panel. It doesn't and to be honest it doesn't really matter as the lack of local dimming has a bigger impact of the HDR.
I would be more concerned with the RGBW panel.
Saying that it's a 55" Tv for less then £500
Definitely a steal at this price for a brand name! Do you think Currys or JL will price match?

Where did you find price match for 49 ue 6400 please share I am looking for one
I bought the 670 model in 49”... found it totally underwhelming as I’m used to proper 10 bit and decent hdr, so sent it straight back. The magic remote makes the experience better with the lg sets, but these don’t come with one unfortunately.

Reliant Direct had it on offer for £450 when I got it price matched, I think that's expired now and back to full price for them.

Just do a search on this site and for TV and see what you can find.

Except HDR's extra shades are largely beyond the contrast range of the panel, so giving it more shades within that range doesn't make much difference.

This TV has an on-screen brightness range of say 0.3-300cd/m² (1000:1 contrast) which corresponds to somewhere around 530 shades in the PQ EOTF (shade #100 to just past shade #600). Or would do if it has full colour space coverage. A non wide-gamut TV like this only coverage about 53% XY of the Rec. 2020 colour space.

As a very rough back-of-the-envelope calculation 53% of 530 is 281 shades.

So putting a 10-bit panel on a normal TV like this allows it to reproduce around 281 shades of HDR data instead of 256 shades. And that's not accounting for the way the size of the colour gamut changes at different brightnesses and so on, it could easily be less.


If you want to reproduce more of the 10-bit HDR data then you need to prioritise a good on-screen brightness range (aka contrast), generally created through a local dimming system on LCDs, and a wide colour gamut backlight.


As for the deal this has been the normal sale price for the UJ630 for the last couple of months. Amazon had it two weeks ago for £430
hotukdeals.com/sea…30V

So while it's a decent enough TV for the price I don't think it's a deal particularly.

Got one of these for a relative #not tech savy# when they were £429 on amazon last month.

Took an extra week over the "2 day TV" delivery service to arrive, maybe due to so many
orders of the same item at once!!!

This model is:

LG 55UJ630V
8bit Allstar#BOE panel with FRC
It is also WRGB so has the infamous "missing" pixel filled with white panel

This is a fine TV for around 400-450 but at 500, there are a couple more 55"
choices that may suit better for different applications.

If you do get one, before you start setting it all up, get the new jan2018
firmware update, this resolves a lot of the "dark images" "rubbish colour"
"laggy GUI" issues in one go.

The 4k on this set is very good to start with, great on real 4k input and
handles every format of file you can chuck at it.

With the LG webOS 3.5 / 3.8 operating system, you get a really good
user interface, that is suitable for all ages #relative is 73# and has a
cool, if you have watched this, you might like that recommendation
tab on the right of the screen.

All the apps and 4K streaming content is really good, but what is a
big surprise on this model, is the sound, really clear and has all the
tight treble#bass reflux on the speakers for all content, 4k movies
and 4k rakuten streams really shine.

Boots up really quick ##not like the 850/950## from cold and if you
want a BIG 55" 4k monitor is good for hdmi / miracast / chromecase etc.

Only thing noticed when had a play, is the wifi is a bit naff#seems
very slow, this is not making any difference to 4k streaming side
but when using the webOS internet TV browser / downloading
tasks seems weaker.

Worth £500 no, but sure they will come down to £430-450 as soon
as the new ones are out in march

Anyway, she loves it and now has end to end knitting videos to watch
on youtube!!!

I'm gonna have to disagree with your first sentence and I glanced at the rest of your tech talk.

All Tv's will tone map the HDR signal so TV will always make the most with what they've got. So it does make a difference as it will achieve a higher percentage of REC 2020.
How does this compare to 55uj701v?
RGBW
Not real 10bit

Who cares? A 55" for under £500 is one hell of a deal!
Not that we need it. The 49" LG in our living room is good enough.
I'm trying to find a 47" (or so) for the parents, ideally 4k, very good picture, proper 10bit, think they're looking around £600. Can anyone recommend anything?

There were a few unicorns out there which showed ##some## of the batches did have a true boe made
10 bit panel in them, but not actually seen anyone with one that has. The 800 is also a 100hz panel, the
next ones up #850#950# are true 120Hz.

The V's use a #nano cell# layer so the panel can do more, LG refered to it as super ultra hd.

This is a very good showing of the 800v on the go and worth watching a few times, if you are
interested in the mid-high end V range of panels.


The debate about is this better#worth more#a deal, is really down to what you want
to use the TV for, other than watching TV!

I'd say highly unlikely.

also it's best to go into store John Lewis preferably and watch this model or a close LG equivalent and look at the viewing angles. LG IPS LCD's have really poor viewing angles and not so great black levels either.

And how does tone mapping down to SDR produce a difference? Ok you might see a removal of banding in some particularly tricky shadows (that which isn't caused by compression, image processing or something else) but what else?

You've answered your own question, Colour banding is also an issue.
Furthermore I specifically referred to a HDR signal.

You clearly have knowledge in this area but my understanding is that an LCD's ability to display any colour standard accurately is significantly affected by the quality of its light source in addition to sub pixel structure and CMS.

Manufacturers moved away from CCFL LCD screens due to their poor screen uniformity but crucially they produce the incorrect light temperature resulting in a bluish white light.

LED RGB light source deemed too costly so now we have bright white LED backlights with clever colour filters (Quantom dots, Triluminous)
I would take this over Samsung any day , . But would prefer the SJ series over the UJ models

It's widely accepted that VA are the superior panel hence why Panasonic changed to VA on their mid to high end TV products.

Sony only use VA nowadays aswell as Samsung who are a large manufacture of VA panels.

Must be hard to be civil when you full of resentment. You tried talking to someone about it?
