I bought this TV recently from Richer sounds for £520. At this price I'll be getting another for the bedroom. I got this a couple of months after buying a more expensive LG set for the other room. At first I was a little underwhelmed by the usage of some plastic on this as the more expensive set was all metal. But I soon got over that and decided that this set actually offered a better picture and less light bleed than the more premium set. Unless you want the absolute best of everything, and are willing to pay for the privilege, this set will do everything you need and look great doing it. I can't recommend it enough and the smart features work well, I mostly use the YouTube and Netflix apps with no issues at all. Richer sounds are by far my chosen store of choice for anything like this as they actually know what they are doing and will sort any issues you have down the line. I appreciate that this set is the same price at other stores now, but the 6 year guarantee is worth it's weight in gold imo and I have used it in the past. My only gripe is that I got used to the magic remote and this set doesn't include one. Still, for this silly low price and a whole 6 year guarantee, it's hard to complain...

Amazon didn't offer anything like a 6 year warranty.
Was on Amazon for £249 just before New Year. I realise it doesn't include a 6-year guarantee, but that's a pretty big jump.
What premium set are you comparing this too? I have both this and the LG 49SJ810V and i think the latter is better in every aspect.

To be honest, I can't remember the exact set which is why I left that aspect vague. I will check later.

It is, I didn't see any past deals for this in those kind of price ranges. For now, this is a very good deal compared to what I paid for it. I will say however that Richer sounds are really good to deal with, they will price match if you can find it cheaper. If you're cheeky, they may even knock a bit off anyway. I think I got £20 or so knocked off of this when I boight it back in September...ish.
Got this when Amazon had it for £299 last week.
£299 mentioned at Amazon is max acceptable price for 43" tv which shouldn't be called 4K due to RGBW panel

Not sure how you've come to that conclusion. But don't forget the 6 year guarantee also which places like Amazon do not offer. It has saved me hundreds in repair bills over the years via RS and I'll happily pay a premium for it. We are however all different of course.

A mistake on their part I think. It was around £550 everywhere when I purchased my first.

Lol back in your box. Don't trust everything you read online.

RGBW is really not that big of a deal. It has some minor disadvantages, but also has minor advantages (whites are better, more energy efficient).

Compared to the pitfalls of budget Samsung's and other budget tv's its a minor compromise. If you want true 4k, then you will need an oled which are way more expensive.

Would rather pay £350-£370 for 40" MU6400 from Samsung which is a great tv than same money for 43" 3K LG with some extra white sub pixels
I have one of these. Bought it from Richer Sounds when it was £349. It's OK, but picture quality is no where as good as an LG should be.
Wouldn’t touch Richer Sounds,got the father in law a TV from there and the back had clearly been opened up....damaged screw heads,took it back on the basis I paid for a “new” TV,store guy got another one out and that had marks on the casing....he then told me that they do sell refurbished models,which is fine if they are sold as such but they ain’t!!!!
This is why in general they are cheaper!
Got a refund and went elsewhere.

£249 was a different (similar, but inferior) model. This model was £299 at Amazon, though only with a one year warranty.

I ordered this for £299 from Amazon when it was OOS but they've given me a delivery estimate of end of January or sometime in February. Weighing up whether or not to cancel and order from Richer Sounds instead. £80 for an additional 5 years peace of mind??

No mate, you hop back in your box.

1. RGBW actually presents as a 3K image, 25% less resolution than a standard RGB set. That's 25% less picture, less detail, less everything. You can't dress it up.

2.True 4K needing OLED? You're talking BS. 4K as a resolution has nothing to do with screen technology, it's a pixel count and therefore has nothing to do with OLED, VA or IPS. If you're talking about contrast (i.e HDR) OLED does pure black but suffers in peak brightness, QLED for example are the inverse.

Either way, this TV is cheap and it's cheap for a reason. It's compromised. If you have a good FHD screen, wait for a decent higher end screen, save some cash and do it right to begin with - assuming of course this is your primary viewing TV, and not something for the bedroom/kids room/kitchen in which case these cheap TV's are more than adequate.

Why is a poorer picture OK as long as it's in a different room? Curious logic - mate!

I'm surprised to read this, I've used them for as long as I can remember and I have nothing but praise for them. I wouldn't go anywhere else (Maybe unless it was for a huge discount that RS couldn't match) They always seem to go out of their way to help and unlike many other stores, they actually know what they're on about. Or my closest store does at least. They do indeed sell refurbished items for a discount, they often have them in store also, always clearly marked as refurbished. Seems a mistake was made somewhere, either by them or yourself. But I would recommend giving them another try as your experience definitely goes against my own, and that of others.

Delivery estimate of early Feb as OOS. Have always been impressed with LG, and at that price, would have been rude not to treat myself
Heated up and thanks for posting ....so many good deals on at the moment.

I managed the get the rather nice hisense n5700 for 279quid from Amazon last week, so not in the market now but any deal where a set is reduced significantly is great, especially for those who do not have access to the all important hukd time machine!

That's for you to clarify.

I speak of my own viewing practice... if you watch a glut of 2.5hr movies in your kitchen, then I guess you better save up for 2x proper Tv's, mate.

If that challenges your logic life must be heavily confusing, my sympathy.
I bought the 49” version when it was 379 from amazon. It arrived today....opened it up, connected Xbox, virgin, played some 4k discs, rips, iPlayer 4k etc... wrapped it back up and it will be returned. Totally underwhelmed by it to be honest. Not sure if it’s the lack of 10 bit but it seemed washed out/Matt kind of looking with no pop at all to colours. HDR was non existent. Back to the drawing board.. I have an OLED in the lounge but missus isn’t keen on me Xbox’ing on it!!!
I bought the cheaper LG 43UJ630V for £279 last week and honestly, the TV is great in my experience. The colours and brightness are fine for viewing in my bedroom, and the RGBW layout isn't as bad as you might think. I mainly game on this TV set and the input latency is probably the best I've ever seen on a TV as large as this, totally beats the hell out of my older Samsung 4K screen. Also, I was totally blown away by the smart features with webOS. I have a PS4 so I thought, why on earth would I need smart features built in the TV? Well, the built in apps load quicker than the PS4 and having shortcuts on the TV remote means it's super easy to watch online programs in no time at all.

I've seen a lot of comments dissing this TV, but I'm quite picky and overall I'm pleased with it. It did take me some time tinkering with the settings to get the best picture, however it was worth it as it looks very good right now! The only thing that I've found is an issue with this TV is the viewing angles, they're pretty poor. That's not something that matters to me though, and for the price, it was a very good buy.

Been reading samsung news? I suggest you go to an actual shop, stand your actual viewing distance from this tv and realise that you can't see any picture quality deterioration.

You are correct, 4k describes the number of pixels. But this tv has the same number of pixels as any other 4k tv, just with a different array of sub pixels.

It is true, some colour definition will be lost locally through replacing a coloured sub pixel with a white one. For close work on a pc monitor, this rgbw arrangement is therefore not ideal. However, for watching tv or video from your sofa, the difference is literally invisible to the human eye, due to those localised losses continuously moving around the screen, coupled with a reasonable viewing distance.

An advantage is that whites will appear much brighter and better with this arrangement than on a rgb panel, which IS noticeable from your sofa.

My point is that yes, this is a budget tv and therefore it won't be the best quality out there. And you may want to blow much more money to get a better tv because that's what's important to you. But comparing this to other 4k tv's around the same price point, the rgbw compromise is far less significant than the compromises made by other manufacturers. I can guarantee, to get a better quality tv you will need to pay significantly more.

As a final point, if rgbw is so bad, why did LG continue it in their 2017 models? They can't have had too many returns/complaints to warrant it.
Just ordered one. Thanks for posting OP.
Help me out here HUKD folks - do I stick with my £299 order from Amazon with one year warranty, or cancel and order from Richer Sounds for £379 with a six year warranty?
Chillbo11 h, 42 m ago

Cold. Was 299 at Amazon last week.


Is it still £299 at Amazon? If not, and it's not available cheaper than this deal elsewhere, then voting cold is not the way to go?

Read Pavels post and the link within.

I won't argue with you that black is white, you have a vested interest in defending something you've purchased, I do not.

If you think RGBW gives a quality image, you probably don't need a 4K TV in the first place.
