LG 49 Inch 4K UHD Premium Certified IPS TV £749 @ Amazon

Edited by:"Anand7"Found 24th Sep 2017
The cheapest true 10 bit panel with UHD Premium Certification. Supports both HDR 10 and Dolby Vision. Has LG's "nano cell" tech which is meant to produce more accurate and vivid colours. Haven't been able to find any true 10 bit panels cheaper than this.

Bingohomer - "Same price at John Lewis + 5 year guarantee - johnlewis.com/lg-….ds

It is also this price at a few places, including AO.com, who are doing 10% off all 4k TV's I think at the minute, so would actually bring the price down to £674.10"

Wonder how long it'll be before someone quotes 'RGBW Panel'
Will also leave the link to the specifications here, as I know that usually gets dropped in on most 4k tv deals at the moment - displayspecifications.com/en/…b16
RGBW panels are actually a real scam, and yes, this TV has one.

Thanks @Bingohomer even better deal
I don’t think a 100 Hz refresh rate worth the price on a 49 inch, surely the 700B Panasonic is a better deal, isn’t it?!

That series of TV's from Panasonic uses 8 Bit panels with FRC as far as I can see. Not a bad deal at their price range but this is a true 10 bit panel.
Pretty sure these are 8bit (+FRC) as per the richer sounds spec too, and read someone confirmed it with LG... so not true 10bit but will accept/display a HDR10 signal.
Why are people so keen on 10-bit panels? I haven't seen a single test where 10-bit panels exhibit less banding than a good 8-bit implementation at current colour volumes.

The most influential factors for HDR performance onan LCD are local dimming and tone mapping performance. LG's LCDs don't do terribly well, but to be fair nothing does at this price.

p.s. This model is not UHD Premium certified:

According to displayspecifications .com this is a 10bit panel there is a LG49SJ810V model that is 8bit +FRC and the only other difference from the SJ800V is the stand is central type comparison here displayspecifications.com/en/…044

Yeah I saw that site when looking into this set before but don't know where they pull their info from or if 100% reliable?, on the official LG site both the 800 & 810 are just listed as HDR 10 with no further details on it but I read on another thread somebody called LG to check and they said the 800 was 8+FRC. Doesn't really bother me but if it did anyone else I'd double check this with LG first.
This is pretty chool

Why is that a bad thing? I'd assume someone pointing out that this is RGBW would be useful to those people wanting to buy a TV?
man am i the only one whose head nips when all these different specifications are advertised, read out, then disagreed, with and deliberated about

its as if the manufacturers are trying to con you into buying something substandard

Because most people probably won't even notice the difference between the two, and they're usually cheaper than the RGB comparators.

People just like to use the RGBW as a reason to slate the LG TV's
Probably the same people who say stuff like "but for £50 pound more you could get 'x' which is much better"

I think the reason that it gets pointed out is that LG and retailers don't make it obvious that it's not really 4k, so people who don't really understand all the technical jargon think they are getting something that they aren't.

They still deliver a decent picture, but they aren't as good as a real non-RGBW 4k set which is why they are cheaper. If you can't notice the difference between these panels and a 4k one then great, go for the cheaper versions. But if you want 4k and can tell the difference, I think it's only right for it to be pointed out that these models are not what you should be looking at.

if you can't tell the difference betweena RGB and RGBW screen,

don`t bother with 4K get a cheep 720p screen,

and save money up for lazer eye surgery.

Yeah okay , I suppose you're one of these people who would demand nothing less than 144hz for gaming and 1ms response time maximum on a monitor too...

LG's '3k' panels aren't as good, usually much cheaper but it'll still be way better than 1080p .

The differences are only really apparent when they're side by side and not many people will have two 49" TVs next to each other in their rooms.
To clarify the 10bit issue on this set, and if displayspecifications info is correct.. LG themselves replied:

"Thank you for your query regarding your LG TV; I would be more than happy to assist you with this query today.

We have it listed as a 8bit+FCR panel. However we have recently noticed a decent number of reviewers and external technical websites stating this is a true 10 bit panel. This is a mistake on their end. This should be an 8+2 FCR panel."

just so the correct info is out there.

So just too clarify, you recommend this TV as long as you don't compare it with any other TV, WOW JUST WOW.
