4k, 3d on an IPS panel, sounds fantastic, I just wish it was a bigger screen.

4k is worth the money, the picture is way better than 1080p

Can the naked eye really pick up more info than 1080p!!, think 4K is a bit of a gimmick at the moment and there is hardly any media available. Spend your money on a decent 1080p screen and pocket the difference!

Don't buy if wanted for gaming, has bad input lag but great for any other use.

on my macbook i notice the difference between 1080p and 1440p.

Depends on the distance from the screen and size of screen. Buying a 42" 4k TV from a distance of 5ft or further probably won't seem much different to most people. On a macbook or laptop or pc, because you are closer, it's a big benefit having higher resolution displays.

If your looking for a huge TV, you want 4k for a much better picture. I think 49" may be hit or miss depending on your distance from couch in my opinion. But many will be able to notice differences in quality with higher resolution.

I'm waiting for a 60" myself

Was only a few quid more for for the 55 inch from Pixmania £872.03

4 times better you might say ;-)

Sony 4k is chroma 4.2.0 @30hz whereas LG can do 4k chroma 4.4.4 @60hz on hdmi3 and Sony spec on hdmi1/2 sockets. The 4k bluray spec has not been set yet.
Then there's HDMI v1.4 & 2.0 plus hdcp 2.2 to throw into the mix.

Waiting for spec to be agreed before buying but to anyone buying make sure you know what you're buying will meet your needs both now and in the future.

Same price at Richer Sounds -

richersounds.com/pro…50v

So I would imagine that John Lewis will soon be dropping their price ...

And this TV supports the standard via its HDMI 3 connection which is the only 2.0 HDMI connection on the set.

not sure this is strictly true. There appears to be 4 HDMI ports capable of supporting 4K at 60 Hz http://tab-tv.com/wp-content/uploads/HDMI-4K@60Hz-e1420295818714.png.


HDMI 1.4 introduced the kind of bandwidth required to deliver 4K video, but HDMI 2.0 can dole out 4K video without compromise, at 50 and 60 frames per second. In HDMI 1.4, the rate of 4K was limited to 24 frames per second. So wouldnt this mean that 4 x 4K @60Hz = 4 x HDMI2.0 ?

I know that HDMI 3 is the only port to support 4:4:4 though, but thats more about colour range than anything else.

That may be a picture of the 820 model. Pretty certain when I got mine that there was only one 2.0 HDMI, the rest are 1.4 on the 8 and 950's.

nah, this is my 49ub850v so there are defo 4 x 4k@60hz

Yeah you're right, just looked at mine n it says the same! That's really odd as if you look at the avforums thread on the TV pretty much everyone was convinced that only HDMI 3 was 2.0 and it was reading this that made me decide to go for one after being blown away by the picture on one in Currys.

Now the same price at John Lewis -

johnlewis.com/lg-…132

Can't make my mind up whether to buy now or wait to see if the price drops any more ....

What is a DNS code and how would you enter it etc?
