​ not the same model

Is this better than the Samsung ku6400 that was recently posted? More looking to use as a PC monitor.

Is this the one that has issues with the PS4 pro drm?

HDR my ****.

No HDR????

Why are the manufactures putting HDR on sets like this that have no chance of supporting it, HDR has become a marketing tool to flog more sets if you want HDR at a decent level you need a set that has Premium UHD certification that means spending double the cost of this set.

No HDR????


It'll accept a HDR signal, probably as cba to check, but what you get out the other end will be anything but.

Thank you for this, how is the clarity at even higher resolutions, I'm trying to replace a 3x1080p set up. Also does this support 444?chroma?

Looks exactly how your would expect 4K - Perfectly clear & no ghosting. My 780ti doesn't cope well with 4K so never go that high. I have no idea about subsampling so wouldn't know.

this tv has HDR (HDR Pro)
you can read more on http://www.lg.com/uk/tvs/lg-43UH650V
Bought this tv 3 days ago, tested and have to say It is really good tv. upscaling is amazing and 4K content looks stunning.
it also has 3d sound effect I am using it as my bedroom tv and for that price I really can not complain.

''When something is shown in HDR there is a dynamic range on display that is closer to the huge range of colours and shades that your eye can process. Sun glistens off water, stars shine brighter in the sky - your entertainment comes to life. Content producers are already producing HDR entertainment and LG UHD TV is ready for this content. ''

Just not this set it's peak brightness is far to low in fact nearly 3 times less than the minimum set for Premium Certification also you need some form of dimming this set has none whatsoever why HDR was even added to it is puzzling.

No such thing as a 1080i set, probably the odd projector or an early CRT thing. And if we're still on 1080p, its because only a couple of sets at present are capable of doing HDR justice, and even then the oled (imo the only ones to consider) sets only go to 500 nits so HDR premium spec had to be fudged to allow them. If 2017 oled models manage 1000+ nits then I imagine more people (like me) will adopt them. Looking forward to Sony's oled offerings.

If it has the same panel as 620V then the video quality is ****. 95% of LED full HD non-4K TVs will have much better picture quality than this one.

why do they complicate tvs.........I want a tv for about £50, 40" and above, smart tv and possibly a curved one as well...... dosent need to be 4k because I will never have anything that lets me watch anything in 4k.. All I want is the best picture available....one that I cant watch when the lights are on in the room, and one what the sun reflection dosent effect!!! A couple of hmdi ports and usb port, possibly a scart port as well..... If someone could find me one I would be over the moon because I know nothing about all this techie stuff...... PLEASE

Looks like this tv: http://uk.rtings.com/tv/reviews/lg/uh6500

As a monitor it can do 444 chroma at 4k 60hz with 35ms lag. This is good. HDR is not available with 444 chroma though. The RGBW pixel structure means small (only colored?) text will be a bit less clear than a regular RGB panel. Not sure how significant that is, depends how close you are I suppose. I suspect mostly not a big deal. Also see the Samsung available from right sounds for 349: uk.rtings.com/tv/…300 (ku6300 is the US version of the UK ku6000). Or the Sony X830C.

I'm also looking for a big monitor. Any info welcome.

​the 444 chroma makes a difference. you can switch on uhd colour to get the most of it. is rgb full better than 444? confuses me abit

can someone help me please?

Give it a rest you lot. Every time you come into a HUKD thread about a TV it's same old nonsense. Once peace has been achieved in the world, there will still a group of HUKD users still moaning about 4K, HDR, 10 bit, 12, bit, PS4, PS56, XBox78.... yawn.

£50? or £500

Your best option is the Samsung UE40K6300AK it's just inside your budget and is a decent set best bought from John Lewis or Richer Sounds as you will get a 5 or 6 year warranty thrown in and both have very good customer service.

444 means pixels behave as regular, independent pixels as on a computer monitor. TVs (non 444) often discard information when showing an image, as video content is usually compressed in this manner anyway it's not an a major issue for video, but make them less clear for showing text.

RGBW means you don't have a traditional square grid of pixels. For displaying text (black/white) it may not have much effect, but for colored text (use sublime text editor?) it will make a bit of a pig's ear of it on the pixel level. http://www.overclock.net/t/1602203/lg-43uh6500-any-good

TLDR Samsung ku6000 seems like a better bet as a monitor.

Let me hijack this thread while hoping the "experts" are still here. I have to purchase from Currys - yes I would prefer RS e.t.c.
I don't have a huge budget so I know I can't afford a 10 bit screen - read up a tiny bit.
I want to watch Sky football, F1, Nat Geo stuff and stream Amazon plus the usual dross on tv - Movies won't be from Sky
I can't find the diffference (other than price) between LG 49UH620V & 49UH668V then to throw a spanner into the works I see Samsung UE50kU6020 is now reduced and top of budget. Any advice on these three models please.

RGBW basically means it isn't a 4k set. And with no HDR either means its a waste of money. Buying a rgbw set just encourages manufacturers to lie and confuse customers so please don't do it!

Just wondering as you own this TV does it output sound via the speakers and headphone jack at the same time or does it cut of the speakers when headphones are plugged in? Also does it support Bluetooth headphones?
