A 60hz panel is fine for gaming and no content is going to be over 60hz anyway.

120hz is only relevant if you plan on utilising motion interpolation and frame insertion. Most people like to turn these off or on minimally but that's up to you.

And between the wrgb and rgb panel it doesn't really matter if you aren't going to use the tv as a computer monitor and reading it's text up close.

Left field comment here...I was in Currys yesterday looking around and the guy in store had me compare the Sony screens to everything else and they did indeed look great, but I'm honestly not sure if this was the case or I was just swayed by the sales pitch :P anyone any opinions on the better TVs in the £600-700 range?
I demoed this in Richer Sounds before purchase and in the price range I think it’s among the best for screen quality and the OS blows the others away. I specifically asked for football as motion and colours are always easy to see any problems and it handles both well. It’s pretty good for gaming, although for some reason the gaming screen setting is always greyed out. Had it 6 months and apart from having to buy a Central stand (£25 on Amazon) because the legs were too far apart for our lovely glass TV stand, it has been a brilliant TV. And that was to replace an amazing Panasonic plasma which was always going to be hard to replace! At this price you won’t regret it. Sound is reasonable too, although we have a soundbar for the films.

While the TV generally gives a good viewing experience Android OS is painfully slow and it ruins the experience. YouView is a gimmick as it lacks some features such as recording, the interface is slow, but it has to be enabled to allow access to some catch up services.


Im using it for PS4 pro and movies so maybe I could bypass their os as much as possible. Thanks

For movie viewing I'd definetly go for something other than this, as this uses an IPS panel (as do all LG's LCD TVs), which offers a greatly inferior contrast ratio and black levels compared to the VA panels that most other manufacturers use. It's fine in a brightly-lit room where the ambient light hides most of the difference, but you'll really notice it in dimmer conditions.

The Panasonic EX750 that's also been all over the site today would be a much better buy for your purposes IMO. Equally, I wouldn't worry too much about what you see in-store. The settings are usually nowhere near what you'd want for home viewing.

I chose an IPS panel for the better viewing angles,VA is better if your directly in front of the screen but move off centre a little and it all goes pear shape.

The Panasonic is good and definitely a nice pic but annoyingly does not have Dolby Vision and more and more UHD movies are presented in Dolby Vision now..

A vast exaggeration. You have to move at least 20 degrees off-centre before VA's weaknesses in terms of viewing angle become apparent, and the picture remains decent well beyond that. In fact, what VA loses out the most on off-axis compared to IPS is its black levels - but that only results in the same greyish blacks that IPS has no matter where you sit. At least you can be in a position where black actually looks black with a VA panel, whereas you're stuck with IPS' compromises permanently.

Of course, that's just my opinion and for brighter content it won't matter. If your main purpose for the TV is having people around to watch the football, IPS is just fine. As someone who regularly watches movies at night though, I'd never consider an IPS panel.

All Blu-rays with Dolby Vision also carry a basic HDR10 presentation, and on TVs in this price range you're really not going to see much, if any difference between the two. Dynamic metadata is preferable, but it doesn't suddenly turn mid-range TVs with peak brightness under 500 nits and very limited, column-based local dimming into HDR beasts. Dolby Vision actually demands a lot more in terms of specs than basic HDR10 for a true representation, despite its incidental benefits for helping with tone mapping. At best on a TV like this it would result in slightly less clipping on already pretty dim highlights, but you're not going to be seeing the HDR presentation anything like the way it's supposed to be without spending a fair bit more.

Apologies it was Tesco, currently £27 Universal one. It’s great quality though and easy to put together, blends in well with our black unit: tesco.com/dir…tch

No this is the vast exaggeration "which offers a greatly inferior contrast ratio and black levels compared to the VA panels that most other manufacturers use" 20% off centre is nothing and the perfect picture goes grey.

Decent tv with nano cell display I'm sure and dolby vision. Either this or the Panasonic 750 that's going for 599 would be my choice. Both 2 good tv's.
