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

Just bought one from Marks Electrical cause they have 5 year parts and labour but Currys, Argos, Amazon have also matched.

Probably the best TV at this price. Voted "Best buy" by Which.



See the properties of light controlled with pinpoint precision by watching the LG 49SM8500PLA 49 inch Nano Cell 4K UHD Smart Television.

Nano cell technology is all about enhancing contrast, colour and clarity to its most refined forms, even at wide viewing angles.

It calls upon particles that are one nanometre in diameter, which act as colour purifiers that absorb unwanted light sources for meticulous brightness levels.

The direct full array backlighting system positions rows of LEDs all over the screen, which sit behind the LCD panel and nanoparticles.

Local dimming groups these LEDs into zones which can be illuminated, darkened or even turned off as the source signal dictates.

Reds, greens, bright whites and dark blacks form part of over a billion colours, with more than 1,000 shades of each primary aspect, that can be expressed.

High dynamic range can produce a greater field of luminosity by widening the gamut, with tone mapping for smooth transitions.

The multi-format 4K Active HDR delivers scene by scene adjustment through LG's own 4K Cinema HDR, Advanced HDR by Technicolor and HDR10 Pro.

Additional remastering for live broadcasts is supplied by Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG), which emulates light displays as they change without requiring dynamic metadata.

Dolby Vision and Atmos are powerful versions of HDR, that can provide a truly cinematic experience when watching movies.

This retains its accuracy for up to 60 degrees away from the television, thanks to an IPS 4K panel that can move around molecules in the LCD display to expand the viewing area.

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are contained within the second-generation A7 Processor, which has a deep-learning algorithm.

Motion Pro ensures free-flowing footage in the native 4K frame rate of 60fps, with black frame compensation for better handling.

The A7 Processor also has upscaling properties, which effortlessly sharpens and updates lower definition content to near 4K quality whatever the source.

The webOS operating system provides access to plenty of video streaming services and apps, plus management of connected devices.

Gaming is great in 4K HDR, with low input lags, providing crystal clear settings for the players which respond as quickly as they do on LG's most-advanced LED TV.

People will complain its an IPS panel, possibly that it's LG, not as good as last years model, local dimming isn't the best etc, etc.

What's it like for dark viewing, you hear horror stories (are they blowing things out of proportion) about the black contrast and potential light bleed when the lights are off on these panals

Also what's the code, have you tested it? I'm not a member so I will have to join, I just want to make sure it works beforehand

If anyone owns this TV, I read the viewing angles are poor is that true.
Also are there any problems or shortcomings

Very happy with it, blacks aren't as good as an OLED, but it's not OLED prices. Also sent an email to Crampton and Moore if they would price match the eBay promotion, theysaid no but offered to sell the set for £500, including 5 year warranty.

Viewing angles: VA < IPS < OLED. That applies to all TVs. Also, IPS panels have better viewing experience than VA in a bright room. Reason is the VA blacks shine when the room is dark.

Personally, I bought this for my kitchen and will be viewed at all angles and in bright conditions so I leaned towards an IPS panel. If I was buying for my living room I'd choose a VA or OLED (budget permitting). This specific TV has great reviews plus it has magic remote, their easy-to-use webOS and good sound. Can't fault it for this price tag.

I was going to get the 55" version from argos for £649 but the the legs are 107 apart and my TV stand is 105. So if I bought this I would have to buy a new TV stand for about £150 to £200 which would put the cost to around ,£850 so I have had to pass. Bit gutted really but it would feel like I am paying £850 for this tv lol and it's not worth that much. But I would defiantly would of had it TV stand permitting.
really want this set but think the price may drop on black friday xmas new year lol but worried it may the last of them there getting rid off

Just installed it on the wall and gotta say the TV is great. You can have Netflix open in a few seconds which is crazy fast compared to my 4 year old Samsung, the magic remote is very easy to get used to and most importantly the colours and contrast on the TV look great. Been watching on it during daytime today and no reflections whatsoever. Wide angle viewing loses brightness and quality slightly but thats expected on a LED tv
Is this same as the SM8600PLA? Just with a different stand?

I may be wrong but I think I red on a previous thread that you can remove the legs and purchase generic replacement ones that are not as wide. If true, it might be cheaper than buying a new stand.
On paper this TV ticks most the boxes for a good price. I ordered the 55" from Amazon for 584, I look forward to seeing how it is in person.

Do you have this TV? I ordered the 55" from Amazon this week (for £584) and seeing conflicting reports about the HDMI 2.1 Many sites say 2.1 (even currys) but LG site says 2.0.
I bought the Sony Bravia 55" for £579 instead as we were in store yesterday as it's an Android system and can load Kodi direct, plus the picture ace and sound didn't need a sound bar.

Is Samsung Q60/Q67 better than this one?

Is Samsung Q60/Q67 better than this one?


Yes all the Samsung Q series are premium certified so for HDR content are superior,still a great price for this set heat added.
I have the 55, very little bleed along lower edge, only noticeable when room is in darkness. I am supremely happy with it, especially the 1440p 120hz performance when gaming on it - Xbox one X supports this natively. Along with HDR10, Dolby Vision.

If it helps its a Which best buy. The one draw back of the TV is the viewing angle unless you are looking pretty much straight on the colours go a little washy.

What kind of stand are you looking for? if its a glass one then you can pick one up for around £60.
I been waiting for a TV however for this price range I believe the Samsung QLED are much better 49inch model rest are too pricey. The ambient mode does it for me.

Thank you but it's to late lol already bought a new TV now lol
Was looking for a good deal on a living room TV, not fussed about how it looks in the dark size/price/quality seems very reaonable - unless anyone has any horror stories I'll probably pull the trigger on this one?
I think full array is only from SM90 series, correct me if I am wrong? Also saw currys had a SM82 one showing as full array, its wrong i think?

I'm repeating myself but its a great TV. Really can't go wrong with LG unless you buy budget TVs and this one is definitely not one of them.

That's correct. Edge Local dimming only on this one. Then again 9000 series is £200 more which is basically 40% over this one

I've also seen the 49" Samsung RU8000 at £529, which seems well reviewed.
