for those wondering the lag input on this is about 40-43 ms in gamemode which isnt good.

i have an LG tv and its lag was about 40ms and i was ok with it but onlinei struggled at times,i got a projector with pretty much zero lag and WOW,the different is crazy in reponse to input.
so with gaming i wouldnt recomend an LG,but if its just for films/tv then there good

Why's every deal about tvs got someone on blasting motion blur and raving about projectors, how big does your room need to be for a projector, surely you'd have leads running up and down walls in your living room going to the projector just curious I've seen a lot of these posts recently.

Nice tv for the money heat added

I'm going to live with the leads up the wall to the projector I'm going to get when my interest free credit card arrives!

I take it the sound is terrible on these units with the very thin frame? I'm tempted by this but only worried about the sound......

i have an LG and its really thin,the speakers are underneath and aim down at a funny angle and making some things hard to hear,but then again any led/thin panel tv needs soundbar for anything more than news/jeremy kyle.

they will prob be fine for mose people but its a shame if u have nice picture and bean can audio

yeah LG have been poor for me in past regarding a lag/firmware issue(they advised i googled help with the issue)
so wouldnt get one again,but there cheap and mostly good product for many.
on another note i have found Sony to have best service.

regarding currys they want u to have there whatever happens cover otherwise there a total pain to deal with also because once they have your money,politeness and care stops

I'm sure I'll be corrected, however after purchase is the warranty and any issues with the product, is it not with the retailers within the first year and the manufacturer after which.

Personally I'd go back in to your retailer, ask to speak to the manager (no one else) and explain your situation, then if that doesn't answer any of your questions advise you'll be going to Citizens Advice for some clearer advice, I'm sure at that point he may become your friend.

Currys are dreadful at taking any responsibility for faulty products after you have bought them - they just shift it back to the manufacturer. Had a long discussion in store, even escalated to the manager and they would not do anythign to assist.

Currys are a lot better now, especially if you have an out of warranty issue. the trick is to make them aware that you're clued up on your consumer rights.

I wouldn't touch an LG - chances are you'll get one with bad DSE or banding and end up exchanging.

tried curry's due to under warranty would not touch told get in contact with lg and asked to speak to a manager as complaints procedure not worth trying as never answer emails

have been to cab just waiting for lg to contact me now

Do Currys offer buy now, pay later on TV's?

Yes on products over £250 for 6 months interest free credit with a £25 settlement fee if you choose to pay it all off at the 6 month mark

This TV is a steal at £399 (£379 with o2) as it still sells elsewhere for £410 refurbished and £475 new. Saying that, as most people choose to enjoy games these days on large screens, I would recommend not looking at TV's with anything more than 35ms, unfortunately this TV is at around 40-45ms going by reviews.

Most people don't understand input lag but it's basically the time that the TV takes to produce an image on your screen, obviously the more MS you have, the longer it takes for the image to appear. During a game of BF4 for example, if you have a 40ms+ television, it could seem like you're shooting at somebody's head but in fact you are lagging behind and are not actually shooting them.

Obviously for the "average" single player gamer, this isn't a deal breaker, but to somebody who actually enjoys being at the top of the leaderboard or being allowed to actually see the game in real-time, you want to aim for a set that produces the lowest MS possible.

There, their, they're

Send them a letter / e-mail so that you have a paper trail.

If that doesn't work, send them a "Notice before Action" letter warning them that if they don't resolve it within 7 days, then you will issue a court claim. Send this letter recorded delivery.

99% of time they will back down at this point, but if not, then issue an online court claim (cost £30) and they will settle before it ever goes near to court.

I'm not voting cold but if your a stickler for picture quality I would stay clear of LG or any TV that uses an IPS panel.

They might have excellent viewing angles but the equivalent 48" Samsung with a VA panel will destroy it contrast ratio wise and will deliver infinitely deeper blacks. IPS panels are well known for their grey blacks and slow response time. That coupled with the high risk of receiving a TV with banding, DSE and clouding (seems to be quite common with IPS panels) makes it too much of a risk.

I'm not talking out of my rear end when I say this (most of the time haha) I've had a number of LG TV's or TV's that have used an LG Panel in the last 18 months and they've ALL been below par with noticeable screen defects.

Hmm, I picked up this last week
hotukdeals.com/dea…388

And Argos is right next to Currys. Do I return the 47LN5400 and get this instead? £320 vs £400...

cold as gandalf would say you fools its 50 hz

This telly does not have 4 x HDMI ports, it only has 2. I was in Curry's earlier looking at this set. The in-store description cards and Curry's website are both wrong, as I pointed out to the staff. The LG website confirms this.

Argos is 1080p, same as this one.
So looks like this one has a thinner bezel, and a couple of cm thinner overall, but not too much else to recommend over the Argos one...?

Is the input lag a concern for just watching HD or SD tv?

Agreed, that is horrendously bad for gaming.

no wont affect tv,but i would still always look towards a sony tv for anything as the build quality is far better and customer service great.

My advice for anyone buying a TV is not to look for advice on HUKD. You will get a plethora of opinions telling you all about VA/TN/IPS/LED/Plasma panels and get no closer to making a decision. And not forgetting the old Vestel remark which pops up every so often on budget TVs.

Don't forget the HDMI cable debate: £40 v 99p....

I bought one, it is fabulous. Absolutely perfect for gaming - Destiny & Fifa 15 have already had about 20 hours played (PS4) on this and the input lag being "horrendous" is utter nonsense. To clarify, we also have a tv with half the response time, 500hz processing, and the difference is infintessimal.

Colours are good, strictly/x factor etc are fine, sound bar hooked up nice and easy. Honestly. for £399 this is a riduculous deal. 1080p on a 47" from a well known brand - nothing to dislike (except it is 2 HDMI not 4).

Oh and it's 100hz, not 50. Not sure why Currys can't get their facts straight.
