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 😊

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.

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

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!

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?

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.

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.

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”


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.

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.

Great! Appreciate your help!!
According to Digital Foundry, you're not going to get decent HDR on any budget TV. It'll support HDR but basically it shouldn't be called that as it just doesn't have the hardware to reproduce the desired effect to a decent level. I think that's a shame as you're looking at either spending £600 at the bare minimum or upgrading simply for the 4K. Or the third option would be wait until the technology (proper local dimming without an edge lit LED, wide color gamut) does come to the budget TV's. Whether Digital Foundry and FlatPanelsHD have extremely high standards and are difficult to please, I'm not sure. But I'm yet to find a TV under £600 that's supposed to have decent HDR, unfortunately.

thank you, onetime! went into currys and asked same question and the chap insisted it was only compatible with sound bars... and when i asked why he said 'it just is!;

final question for anyone: the small harddrive in the tv, is that for limited recording for pause and rewind or can it store some shows (i'm assuming one can add a flashdrive regardless...)
erm... DOESN'T THIS HAVE 15% OFF THROUGH CURRYS BLACK FRIDAY OFFER WITH QUIDCO?

sorry for shouting but i kinda thought i oughta mention it!

apologies if wrong...
so has anyone trieed buying it through th currys black friday link at all and has anyone had notification of cashback being recorded?

thanks.

apologies... should've scrolled down a little!
If you mean forza horizon 3 it wont be patched till January bud.
How does this compare to the john lewis lg tv? Also John Lewis gives 5 year warranty compared to curry’s one year !
