RGBW, so more like 3K apparently, but at this price what do you expect
Edited by: "powerbrick" 19th Nov

Just bought one of these from Currys and my Xbox One X looks great on it.

Well I was looking for a sub £400 TV and am very happy with the HDR10 and the 4K - it’s not a massive screen but is big enough for the size of my room - worth going into Currys and looking at it next to the other TVs - I purchased in store and got advice from the independent rep who didn’t work for Currys (think he was from Panasonic) - essentially it stacked up better than the other LG models going for £369 and whilst the gaming mode seems to darken the picture a little compared to the other modes the sharpness is spot on and there is minimal blurring on Tomb Raider when I spin the camera around - had to turn the HDR10 on the TV on separately which after being impressed for a few hours of play was even more impressed when switched that on as well

Worked out the HDR10 whilst watching the Insects X enhanced free download on Xbox Store - the colours and clarity on that blew me away and there was no dimming of the screen watching that at all - definite heat for TV quality at this price

Can't get 10%?

Is this good for gaming btw?

So glad to read this as looking for a TV £350-400 tops and love my old LG as it's a 9yr old but between my boys/OH it hardly goes off. If it's not paw patrol then it's call of duty/FIFA and if anything I use it for background noise. However, I was really worried about previous LG models being fake with bad quality ect but i am hoping to see it today. How do you find the sound volume/quality?

What about viewing angles? I had bought the 43UJ630V and was disappointed by viewing angles. Wasn't bright & clear, unless you were sat right in front and in line...

Well, I wish I could tell you for sure. My crappy 630v had direct lighting & this does too. Only difference on paper seems to be that this one has 4 HDMI ports & mine had 3 and the stand is different. I would wait for OP to reply my comment or go to currys or some local shop (if they have this) and check it out (from different viewing angles).

Specs here: https://www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/f6c4b2a

Thanks it's quoting 178 the same as the Samsung I was looking at, so that's reassuring.

Spec says refresh rate is 60 while store details says 50

Confusing

Specs can be overwhelming and confusing. Best thing to do is find the nearest high street retailer who sells the tv you are interested in. Ask them to put something on that shows off the detail of the screen then view the tv from various distances and angles. I saw this tv at my local Currys yesterday and looked very decent.

I am happy with the sound quality but use a headset on my Xbox anyways - others mentioning viewing angles I have no issue with these in my room / seating location. It’s an investment so would always recommend going and having a look before you spend any money - I was going to purchase off Amazon for the extended warranties but as I was in Currys looking at the televisions decided to take it home and if any issues outside of the store guarantee just taking my chances with the fact these things should last a reasonable time and have confidence in my abilities at complaining :-)

Sorry no_sunshine not sure if you meant me to reply as I am not the OP just a commenter who bought the TV on Friday - visiting angles are fine if you did mean me to respond - as said to Loopylottylou definitely best bet to go down and have a look before investing I think but I am v happy 😊

I have the Hisense m43300 would it be worth going for this or would I not see much of an upgrade?

Loopylottylou2 h, 13 m ago

I read up on this TV a bit after I had purchased it (wrong way round but had looked at the lower priced ones and hadn’t intended on purchasing this one) and apparently the model was two years old but got a refresh earlier this year. The person who was explaining the differences said that it had everything that the others had but improved sound and better refresh rate - I get confused with all the specs so just took a step back and looked at them all next to each other and they had Xbox adverts and some videos playing on them all so was able to see differences and this one looked the part so just said “we will take this one” - good luck in your search for a new tv!

I was upgrading from a 1080p Toshiba so was always going to be worth upgrading. Not sure what specs your Hisense has but as others have said best off going to the high street and having a look and getting an informed decision before taking the leap and then thinking “I didn’t really need that”

I got it because just invested in the Xbox One X and I am very pleased with it - just remember to turn the HDR10 on as I didn’t work it out for a little while lol

Thank you.. fingers crossed

Just signed up to quidco and it's saying 15% cash back. How does this work? I followed Currys via the quidco link but nothing shows in checkout. Is it 100% the discount will work

Has this telly the ability to record if you plug in a USB hard drive?

Iru7862 h, 31 m ago

50Hz is what it'll produce for regular TV (UK and Europe broadcast at 50Hz) while your gaming and PC's will display at 60Hz.


So it's capable of both as all TV's have been capable of for the last 20 years or so.
Edited by: "spannerzone" 19th Nov

it says it has bluetooth... is that to transmit sound to wireless headphones or to receive audio to playback (hope not... bound to sound tinny).

and is it an easy link? was in john lewis yesterday and staff showed me a damned expensive samsung that you had to drill down about 5 levels of settings to find the bluetooth connection to link...

would appreciate it if someone with the model can tell me if they use headphones with it and hoping you say it's an simple icon on the sound settings.

ta...

Mine is 4k and has hdr but I believe its 8 the colours look a little washed out on assasins creed origins and seems to ruin the draw distance a little as your too busy looking at the washed out effect when the sun shines.

Samsung mu6400 can be had for £399 too which is meant to be better for HDR

If HDR is looking worse than SDR then that's down to the TV's software doing a poor job of mapping the HDR data to the capabilities it has (tone mapping) and nothing to do with the hardware.

Not really, all screens quote 178 degrees. It's typically when the contrast has fallen down to 10:1 which is laughable as far as image quality is concerned. You'd better off looking at somewhere that actually tests it, or better still makes a video so you can see for yourself: For example this is rting's result for the UJ630:

This gets wide gamut which will benefit HDR sources, better speakers and technically a local dimming system too, but it's pretty rubbish.

What do you think would be better at £399, this LG or the Samsung UE40MU6400?

Yes, my bad, I meant your kind self. Thanks for responding

If standing right in front of tele is 90 degrees, we were not getting clear picture once we were past 120-130 degrees on either side of tele. As this is an IPS panel, the viewing angles are supposed to be 178 degrees and our 4 year old LG full HD had no problems displaying clear & bright picture no matter what angle you looked at it from - while on this one picture became quite unclear & dark/dull.

Must say I'm impressed by both.. Samsung ue49mu6470 and LG 49UJ701V! No problems with viewing angles and minimal difference even when displaying gaming 🤔 Seems as I'm paying for it and mainly use it for background noise.. looks like LG again 😊
