LG are known to use RGBW in their panels. However, the TV is this deal doesn't use RGBW.

Maybe for the screen tech yes, all comes down to personal preference. Some users will turn off any kind of frame interpolation when watching sports etc while others will swear by it...

Either way, other TV related specs such as screen resolution, contrast ratio, and panel type will have more impact on the image quality while the TV’s response time & input lag is usually more important for gamers.

Sounds like Dolby Vision could be useful with Netflix.

If this is the full array back lit model it's awesome. I have one not the same model but the speakers on mine are so loud and clear I don't need a sound bar.

Meh.. the addition of Dolby Vision, a built in sub, much better frame refresh system running along with the motion refresh being double and the extra years warranty plus there's a few apparent extra nice to haves which don't really come into it.. but I'd still personally opt for a full 10 bit panel as opposed to the HDR10 on this which is 8+2bit HLG so it still looks nicer than 1080p but doesn't have the proper HDR wow factor in comparison to a 10 bit panel.

Of course if you're just after a telly buy the cheapest option and don't worry about it :-) generally full 10 bit panels aren't sub £600

Hi, if you check the professional reviewa they all say poor black performance, especially in a dark room as they will appear grey. Ips screens have good viewing angles but poor contrast ratio and blacks. Va panels are better is watching straight on without a doubt.

Bought the 55’ version from JL for £649. It’s switched itself on twice during the night. Checked timer, remote but batteries are brand new. Think it may be off button sticking but st a loss.

Anyway, the deal is for the SM8200 so no need to discuss a different model.

I didn't say I mentioned the model someone else did. As long as your happy that is what matters.
The only thing that will always stop me from buying an LG tv is simply down to not being able to cast without having to use their LG app. Little thing to most people but to me it’s a game stopper!
The SM8200 has built-in AirPlay 2 and LG will bring their Apple TV+ app to selected LG televisions this year not sure if it will come to this model but that’s pretty awesome to have if you use Apples ecosystem.
i just bought this model (49 inch 8200) in Denmark for 2799 DKK.

Disable the WiFi auto on option through settings. This may help prevent this happening. This option is usually (re)enabled whenever the YouTube app is updated I've found.
How many hdmi it has?
I have this TV and yes the black is quite poor. Unfortunately I read the Which review which didn’t mention the poor black level which does appear grey and local dimming is horrible.

However it does have AirPlay 2.

IPS TVs don't have good contrast and are not that good for watching movies, they're overrated by Which who must review all their TVs in a bright room in the daytime or something.

If you're dead set on an LG, can't afford OLED and want better contrast, then you're better off getting one of their VA sets which are their 50" (not 49" which are IPS), 60" and 70" TVs.

All their 55" are IPS I think.

Samsung have more choice with VA TVs though as most of their TVs are VA.

Yes, if contrast is an essential factor for you, don’t go for an IPS-based TV, although the picture itself won’t look very bad but when compared with VA, there is always a stark difference

However, IPS is not all bad as they excel more in viewing angles compared to an average VA-based TV which is an important factor to consider in any TV.

And of course, IPS panels do focus more on technical improvements rather than picture details and gaming is one of them, as input lag can be key to someone purchasing a TV as well and obviously the lower the input lag, the better.

Samsung's VA TVs are usually rated best for gaming, they have low input lag, that's not an advantage of IPS TVs.

The advantage of IPS TVs is as you say better viewing angles and arguably, better colour accuracy.

I would say that VA has more advantages though with better contrast, better panel uniformity and less clouding.

I've got an LG, 43inch. Got it last year. Blown away by how good it is. I'm gonna get this one. So the £50 off promotion ends tomorrow? Will that include all day tomorrow then? :/ As that's when I'm gonna get it. Also anyone confirm what the viewing angle is like? That's what I love about my 43 inch LG the most well great picture too.

If that's true, then I'm with you on that issue.
Switched from LG to Samsung.

The viewing angles were fine but contrast and blacks are so much better. Response times to games on my 7400 Samsung is 13ms. Tv and remote are better. Used to swear by LG and have one in the bedroom and kitchen. Found the LG works better on reconnecting Bluetooth on sound bars. LG software updates are abysmal though. While Samsung are still updating my friends 4 year old set.

Get a VA Samsung HDR10+ 7400 55” price matched at JL £479. 5 yr gt.

I used to be always Samsung but the last ones viewing angle was so bad I decided to get an LG after a recommendation from which for it being a great TV. I think the blacks are fine if not great but the overall picture is great. I'm not too fussed truthfully aslong as its a good all-rounder. Like game response times have never been an issue on any TV for me. Also this TV will not be used for games. I'll probably head down to currys and look for myself as its always tricky picking a new TV. I'm so impressed with my current LG that I'm heading that way. I don't mind spending a bit more for a better TV. Which are saying this is the best for me however. How reliable are which?

Not that great with TVs I don't think.

Here's a review of the TV from a Dutch site.

translate.google.co.uk/tra…rch

I think if you need a TV with good viewing angles it would probably be better paying a bit extra for the 8600 so you get Dolby Vision and 100 Hz refresh rate.
