8 Bit with 10 Bit Dithering, but don't let that put you off - this is a cracking tv
Bought this at Xmas after always having Panasonic TVs. Seriously impressed with it. The remote and mouse cursor on the screen makes things so much easier. Picture is excellent.
Better than Samsung KU6400 and Panasonic TX50700B?
Just a warning for those wanting to pick up the last of the 3D sets on the cheap. I had the last years version for a week and the 3D is excellent for 75% of the image with bad ghosting on either the top 25% or bottom 25% depending on your vertical viewing position. I returned my set for this reason and then looked at many others which all suffered exactly the same. This years version also has exactly the same issue when I've viewed it in store.

I've now gone for the OLED C6 which doesn't have this issue whatsoever. If you want the best 3D TV, this is your cheapest bet.

Its almost as if LG have purposely misaligned the 3D filter on the LED screen to make you pay more fore the OLED. Don't take my word for it, test both LED and OLED out in store. Keep an eye out for ghosting at the top and bottom areas of the screen.
i have an older LG49YB850V which you cannot get itvplayer but that runs WEBOS2.0. can anyone confirm that WEBOS3 does actually get itvplayer as an app?

​i have the 55" version of this TV and don't have any ghosting at all. i bought it as there aren't many 4k TVs with 3d any more.

Consider yourself lucky. I've seen about 10 of these TV's at both 49" & 55" and all of them have had the issue to varying degrees. Its strange how the OLED's don't seem to be affected.
If this has Dolby Vision does it mean it does HDR1000? Isnt that one of the most important aspects of HDR?
Aren't the blacks not meant to be that great?
Did some reading, apparently this uses an IPS panel which has good viewing angles but the blacks suffer in low light / darkness, they appear grey as opposed to a VA panel which appears to be the oppposite.

Only for an OLED really, for an LCD the limitation is usually the ability to apply the extra brightness range to the small highlights. This does have local dimming which puts it one up on most TVs at this price but it's a pretty poor implementation. You'd still want to spend more if HDR was your main reason for buying a TV.
Thanks for posting. Saved me £50. I've been waiting for it to come down from £900 to the £700 mark. Happy it went to £650.
I love mine, absolutely superb and leagues ahead of my previous Samsung 40" smart TVs
decided to grab this at that price, heat added
What a great price - a lot of TV for your money. I went for the 55" version for the extra £125
does anyone know if they will allow this code instore? I have one on reserve and collect , I tried calling Currys 'help' line but they told me the code didnt even exist!!
