This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Been looking for a while to get a good quality UHDTV without going into the OLED territory. This one looks pretty good and is rated high on Which? and pretty much covers all variants of HDR. John Lewis had it for £699 with a £50 reduction which I thought was pretty good then a bit of searching here and there I found it for £599 and a previously posted deal (which has now supposedly expired) suggested a further reduction with the code "FACEBOOK". It worked so it gets the price down to £539.10 and you can have free delivery too if you can wait 3-5 days.
Crampton & Moore are a good company too from what I can see and have several "bricks & mortar" shops in Yorkshire

50HZ refresh rate only I believe

50HZ refresh rate only I believe


Up to 60Hz, and irrelevant for me, and probably for most*. I've ordered one, it was this or Sony XF90, but the interface is just too poor/slow on the Sony, despite the better picture.

* rtings.com/tv/…0hz

Fantastic price - It’s either this or the 49sk8500 which I can get for 680.

The Sk8500 is FALD but I will only be using this for my PS4 PRO - could anyone shed any light whether the extra 150 is worth it for 49SK8500?

This TV seems to sinking like a stone lately!

Looks like your mention is true 10 bit and has a 200hz refresh. Personally I wouldn't be spending over 500 for a tv with less than 100 BUT it depends on your needs. If just for watching Netflix then 50 is fine
These deals make me sad haha

I bought the 49SK8500PLA (next model up?) on release at £1200 in a "deal" with £100 cashback. Granted it was a brand new model when I got it (and exclusive to PCWorld) but I really wasn't expecting it to drop to £749.99 within a few months.

Ahh well, it's a lovely TV. Few definite niggles here and there, but very happy with it overall.

very close to buying this TV. When you say niggles would you mind mentioning what they were?

Ill be using for PS4 PRO gaming and the FALD is a major appeal but there very limited info on it as like many Currys tv exclusives
Been researching these TVs along with the current crop of competing models. These LG ones are good, very low gaming lag, have a good OS, but they're IPS panels meaning their contrast ratio is somewhat lacking for HDR. Their peak brightness is not anywhere near say the Sony XF90. This is the compromise here. The Sony ones have their OS as a major weakness however. This is an edge lit TV so will have light bloom during dark scenes. The 8500 series is rear lit with array local dimming but far fewer zones than many competing models.

Hey,

My main niggles with the TV are related to things like the ThinQ "Smart" technology - which is next to useless lol. To get (e.g.) Alexa to turn off the TV you have to remember a specific phrase such as "Alexa, ask LG if it wouldn't mind terribly to actually listen and turn off the TV" - Even if you remember the phrase it rarely actually works. To be fair some of this integration lies with Amazon side of things too, but generally speaking it seems weak for £1200 2018 technology.

I also purchased a 2018 LG SK5 with this TV, and run it via Bluetooth. The way the TV "remembers" which devices you use the soundbar for is increasingly frustrating. (If I switch from PS4 to TV for instance it inevitably selects built-in speakers rather than the soundbar I have it linked to. Basically not a massive deal, but c'mon. Both expensive items, both LG, both brand new yet don't function well together = meh)

In terms of FALD (The main difference between the 8500PLA and the 8100PLA) I'm not a great authority, or that fussy when it comes to screen brilliance. But as I understand it the 8500PLA is as close to an OLED in terms of blacks and contrasts that you're going to get for the money. (especially now it's £450 cheaper than launch!) I understand there are "better" FALD options out there with more dimming zones, but I couldn't tell you which they are.

All I know is my last TV was an LG and lasted happily for 10 years and I still sold it for £150 when upgrading to this one. LG is a brand I trust. To my knowledge many of the big manufacturers (Sony, Panasonic etc) use their OLED panel tech in their own brand TV's because they create the best out there. If you can't justify stretching to an OLED (I considered it, but didn't want over 50" panel) you can do far worse than the SK8500PLA. That said, is it worth £200+ more than than the 8100PLA? I don't know. I guess it depends how fussy you are with colour gamuts, luminance and the FALD.

Hope this helps in some way. I'm sure both screens are great. I've just started playing RDR2 on regular PS4 (waiting for a BF deal on PRO) looks lovely from where I'm sitting.

Switch to google assistant. Ask it anyway you want as long as you use some variant of language meaning off. Today I said “hey google, turn this crap off”......and it did.

Alexa poor. Google good.
do they use an RGBW panel on this model?

This for this feedback - really appreciate it
Code doesnt work anymore
Just spoke with Peter at Crampton & Moore (Tel : 0114 246 7635) and the 10% off was honoured via a telephone order. Hope this helps someone. TV comes with a 5 year warranty, as noted in the post.
Thanks. I got JL to price match the 599 price. I had 520 to spend with them due to warranty issue with my last samsung

No worries mate, hope it helped with your selection.
My trusty 11+ year old Sammy Model: LE40B53P7W decided to finally quit on me (goodbye, Sammy and thanks for wonderful service you'd give) and I'm giving its last rites tomorrow.

I'm a complete novice so I decided to fork out One whole Pound (£1) to get some expert advice by subscribing to Which magazine.

Which gives out some do's and dont's (and in-between for this old timer to really understand). Anyway Which gave an extremely good review so I decided to go for the LG 49SK8100PLA. After researching the best deals I found were with John Lewis @ £599 (5 year guarantee) and also with Richer Sounds (6 years guarantee). But as RS offers 'we don't just match but beat the price, I opted with RS and they beat the price by £10 to £589, I know £10 may not be a great reduction, but to an OAP who's had his pension increased by all of £0.39p per week, £10 is a lot !!


I'm sorry I can't give sound advice whether its good for the latest plug-in electronic gadgets but this OAP can advice you to spend £1 and get yourself Which report/s, and don't forget to cancel your membership before £15.75p following month's subscriptions hit your bank.


Good luck in your quests


COBRA
Thanks Glen_Curtis
