Dont get very good reviews this tv



The LG 40UB800V offers good picture quality and deep blacks, a rare thing on LG's LCD televisions. However, just like most entry-level UHD models, it really lacks responsiveness; any fast movements cause a severe loss of detail. What's more, to keep the price down, LG decided to put in just one LED strip for the backlighting.

Voted hot - as OP says a great second tv or as a pc screen.
Super price for a 40 inch 4k by a reputable brand.

I am after a decent not expensive 4k 55" TV. Can anyone recommend one. Ideally samsung under £1,000

...the only samung 55 4k below £1000 is samsung 55hu6900 (£800) but it has mediocre motion rate only 200hz

I can't but Google can

400Hz my ****. It laggy an unresponsive, the actual pixel refresh time is probably >5ms GtG so in rality it only refreshes 60Hz at best no matter what signal or processing it is being fed.

Why would they make a 4k tv in just a 40" just seems a waste to me

Why? ...you could use it in small room, kitchen or bedroom watching it from close distance and enjoying all extra details.

Don't really understand why the OP shows (prime) in the title and then again in the body, surely this is available from Amazon, not from Amazon (prime)?

Possibly because not everyone has a large front room to have a screen more than 40" without it looking silly

From a review site (first one that came up in google searching for this tv):
"We couldn't possibly recommend this TV for FPS online gaming. We measured input lag at 60 ms in game mode."

Pointless! 4K at its worst.
Buy a decent HD now and upgrade to 4K in three years when it's cheap and usable.

For free? Unless you've got a trial active I'm pretty sure that should be reworded

I wonder if I would use amazon more than Flubit if I had prime and next day delivery for no extra cost (it's actually £79 a year). As it stands I use Flubit 9 times out of 10 and have saved hundreds so chances are I'd still use Flubit more.

..you can reduce input lag on LG TVs using "old trick" renaming the hdmi you are using with your console as "PC" that will switch off all picture improving systems and reduce input lag, it definitely worked with previous models (just google it) I can see no reason why it wouldn't work with this one.

how future proof is this? can it receive 4k channels on freeview?

considering freeview still only broadcast 720p we are probably a decade away from 4k boradcasts, but this TV is compatible with 4k on netflix and Amazon instant video

One of the best Hevc's on the marketplace, would not worry about freeview 4k in anyway, freetime hd will be with most tv manufacturers before freeview 1k, let alone 4k gets anywhere near the UK!

This TV connects to everything at hdmi 2.0 & 2.2 so all the new gadgets coming in Q1 & Q2 2015 will work as will all the stuff that is 4K 60p

4K broadcast is closer than you think. I work in TV and film and I can tell you that I have recently set up a 4K studio (initially to shoot static music videos and news). They use a combination of LG and Samsung TVs for playback and as fake "windows" in the studio. I must say the LG looked better in comparison but that could be down to settings. Now that Blackmagic are producing a seriously cheap 4K broadcast camera, this will catch on very quickly.

will dvb-t/t2 tuner work with 4k transmission or do we have to buy a set top box?

The telly would have packed in before you would ever see 4k freeview on this.

Will this run at 60fps with 4k resolution with my Macbook connected to it?

Are the moaners kidding me?! This is a TV that until recently couldn't be found anywhere for less than £500. It's the first time a decent 4k TV has dropped below £500 and has knocked straight through the £400 barrier. This is a steal in anyone's book.

I've seen this TV IRL and picture quality is the same as cheaper LGs, the difference being when you watch 4k content, even at a distance there is a 3d characteristic to the picture that easily beats any TV <£500.

Decent, not expensive, 4k, 55", under £1000?

Not possible I'm afraid. But as soon as you forget about 4k you can buy a top of the range Samsung or Sony 1080p set.

Why do you need 4k? Even if you upgrade TVs say every 5 years there is little point getting 4k at this time. Buy a decent 1080p set now and get 4k or whatever will have replaced that next time.

Except it isn't a steal. It's false economy as are all cheap 4k sets. They all review poorly. Think about how much better a TV you could get at this price if you forget about 4k.

Broadcast HD in the UK is 1080i, not 720p. I'm not sure why everyone seems to get this wrong.

It's not hard to understand why. It was only June 1st 2012 when Freeview HD was upped to 1080i

In case anyone is interested this TV uses a VA panel and not IpS. apparently not good for gaming according to this review:

digitalversus.com/tv-…tml

Hmm, I was tempted. But I notice it's Edge Lit LED. Which in my experience looks a bit crap.

No it wasn't it went from 1440 x 1080 to 1920 x 1080. It was still 1080i.

For the moment the question should be will this TV be giving all the feature and quality a similar priced 1080p TV would give around this price. The reason being most of the footage you will watch on this TV will be 1080p, and it will be for atleast another 2 years unless Netflix and Amazon video can get more content. Currently the 4K content available is barely enough to fill a weekend.

4k will become massive this year. It's in the grapevine that LG are mass producing OLED 4k televisions cheap that will blow comeptition out of the water. I'm holding back to see what happens.

You buy a TV to last 5-6 years, so you want to be buying the next generation now, all the 4k will be appearing this year, some channels and Netflix etc.

Pointless buying a standard TV set only to replace it in 1-2 years because it is outdated.

Doesn't this attempt to upscale non 4K content? Therefore surely buying a 4k TV would be better anyway? Obviously it will not match watching actual 4k content but surely be better than a full HD TV. I might buy for the end of the bed! Shame can't get a decent warranty Thanks OP.
