Just be aware mate I think these must be returns or shop soiled.
Sounds like a good deal. Be careful of you need to return it as it says they charge a £30 restocking fee which seems a bit harsh.
I bought the similar model from CostCo for £683.33 brand new with 5 year warranty last week. I think that Costco have now sold out.

Nothing particularly wrong with the TV, especially for £683.33. I, however, returned it unopened as I read that the TV actually is a 2.8k resolution and not 4k. That apparently does not really matter for films etc.. but may be quite an issue if you wish to watch football on 4k.
Can someone shed some light.....i just bought a Samsung for my so and this has tv plus. I don't seem to be able to get the freeview hd channels...i.e bbc1 hd itv hd etc. This is the main reason I am looking at the LG brand as it seems to have the freeview hd reciever? Am I missing something with the samsung to get the free to air hd channels?

Samsung freeview channels are generally played off he apps. Should be a big coloured button in the middle of the remote to access.

Or if you have a tv box, you can access free hd channels through there.

Shouldnt be hard. Have you connected your tv to your Wi-Fi?

Yes I have it connected to the WiFi for netflix ....but I don't have a tv box...i don't really want to have to buy an extra box to get these free channels.

If you cancel under your consumer rights which is 7 days I think they can’t charge any fee , was distance selling regulations but it’s changed to something else now

Not sure where you got that advice from but it's not right. You'll only notice a difference between HD (never mind 2.8k) and 4k if you're sitting about 5 foot away (literally) from the screen, so resolution is not an issue at all really. It's processing rates (hz) you need to be concerned about if you're watching the footy as a low rate (50hz) can cause motion blur.

Plenty of people myself included can tell a good difference between 4k and full hd content at more than 5 feet at the screen size here, you can't really blame people for not accepting a 4k screen which isn't actually 4k, it's an issue with lots of LG ips "4k" panels, side by side to a genuine 4k resolution panel the lg looks soft and lacks finer details, this is from my own experience not something I've read online.
But this 1 is a true 4k right?

No the Freeview and Freeview HD channels come off the aerial. You're correct in that 'Live TV'' appears next to YouTube,, Netflix Tec on the menu bar, so it does appear to be an app, but if you remove the aerial all channels disappear. Only the catch-up services run via apps.

Well if you believe you can see individual pixels of a full hd screen (never mind the "2.8k" that an LG panel would provide) at more then 6ft away then you're defying all known capabilities of the human eye. To be fair though, you do say it's only from your own experience. That's the beauty of science - it doesn't care what your opinion is.

You seem know your stuff bit confused is this a good TV for the money and in terms of refresh rates I don't do gaming or watch sports but do like action movies, option greatly appreciated

Yes, it's good value for everyday family use but if you're watching movies on your own (sitting directly facing the screen) you might be better off with another option. Generally the benefit of LG screens is that they offer better viewing angles for people dotted about a room and are good in 'normal' day viewing, but suffer in a dark room as they can't offer deeper blacks that the likes of Sony, Samsung, Panasonic etc can. Don't worry about any perceived lack of 'sharpness' that has been mentioned on here. That's just their confirmation bias talking.

Thanks for the info might hold on and see if I can a decent Samsung

I don't recall saying I could see each pixel? However I did say I can along with a lot of people see the "difference" between 4k and full hd.

Can't see any good advice in recommending an LG ips faux 4k TV if you want an actual 4k screen it should at least have the required pixels, you wouldn't buy a 500hp car and accept it coming with 350hp. Or would you?
Science can prove that 350hp is less than 500bhp, it can't prove that your eyesight is beyond that of an eagle.
You said you could see the difference between the LG screen (a mere 2.8k) and 4k from more than 6 foot. I, along with science, says you can't.

Look here's the thing, all things being equal (and not comparing a high-end Sony with budget range Techwood) anyone buying a 4k screen is likely to be very disappointed in the move from a full HD screen because the reality is unless you are sitting unnaturally close to the screen you will not see any benefit. In fact, with standard definition output (i.e. the majority of what's on TV) the picture could actually be worse than your old HD telly.

It's only with genuine 4k output, a huge OLED screen with a 10/12 bit panel and true HDR (costing ££££s) that you're likely to start seeing something of an improvement and even then it's unlikely to be the resolution that's made the difference. It's colour and processing rates. To be arguing the toss over the imperceptible difference between 2.8k vs 4k is a nonsense. It's like the playground thing of saying infinity plus 1 beats infinity or having an amp that goes to 11.

Resolution wise we could go to 16k and you won't notice any improvement in picture because the human eye just isn't good enough to process it. I'd go as far to say that the whole "4k experience" is totally wasted on 99% of the population based on the fact that hardly anyone sits close enough to the screen to appreciate it and the lack of 4k programming. Yes, you're future proofing your TV in one sense, but by the time shows and films catch up there'll be better alternatives out there in terms of your budget.

My advice to most people thinking that they're missing out on the "4k revolution" would be to do nothing, save up and wait for the price of OLED screens to come down.
