I think this is awesome and nearly bit. I seen somewhere people talking about no HDMI 2.0 and it is not a smart TV. but can you not just buy a fire stick or equivalent to make it a smart TV? looks a bargain to be if so

There's no end of ways to make the TV into a smart TV; but once you have a smart TV it really isn't that great.
The best and most effective way imho is to buy a Now TV box as it gives you all 5 terrestrial channels iplayer and equivalents which a lot of native SMart TV do not.

​in which case this is a cracking deal. about £200 extra for a smart 49 inch usually?

I's not shown as having an IPS screen on LG's website. Seeing as LG push their 'LG's unique IPS panel' you would think they would at least put it on their website. Checking the boxes in Currys the other day the only tv which says it has 4k IPS on the box is the UF850V.

For the record my LG bought in January was advertised (and still is) on LG's website as having the LG unique IPS panel. It hasn't. It has a A-MVA panel by AU Optronics. So even manufacturers LIE, I mean make mistakes on their websites.

Lots of savvy consumers are buying Chinese brands they`ve never heard of (not TV`s mind), in their droves. Aldi (major supermarket chain now) offer a 3 yr warranty on the Bauhn. I mean, you could buy a Panasonic or JVC or Hitachi..... you`ve heard of THEM , right? (_;)

I haven't seen one review for the Bauhn 48" TV. The only review I've come across for a 50" one is dreadful. Someone claims to have seen one review in the comments section for the 48" as well. Which is one star and don't bother basically.

Both HDMI's are 2.0. You can buy either a Fire TV Box for £80 which offers 4k at 30hz or a NVidia Shield for £150 (Inc a free £40 remote for a limited time) for £150 which offers 4k 60hz viewing. However for full 4k streaming you will need superfast bandwidth and currently both Netflix and Prime stream at just 30hz (also prime isn't available on Nvidias box).
Or simply pay a bit more and get a 820 or 850 that has the smart features built in...

Bauhn have apparently told one member that the TV on offer is different to the previous models. Looking at the picture on the thread the TV certainly differs from the previous model if indeed that is the TV they are actually selling.

The problem with apps built into TVs is that manufacturers do not keep updating the built-in apps to be able to keep working with the constantly updated APIs of these apps by the app owners. I have yet to see a Smart TV whose apps all work perfectly 2 years after purchase (correct me if I'm wrong). Buy a Now TV or Fire Stick and you'll have working apps for a far longer timescale. Even better a Chromecast as that's even more futureproof.

Further, there is no financial incentive for TV manufacturers to keep supporting built-in apps in older TVs when improvements in smart functionality by itself is billed as a USP in their newer product lines.

All true. Once consumers begin viewing SmartTVs in a similar way to Smartphones, things may change - anyone buying a phone these days will expect their phone to get regular updates (and if they don't... well, just ask Motorola). It won't be long before they'll expect the same kind of commitment from TV manufacturers.

The spec also says it has an IPS screen. I think you will find that it hasn't, at least not an IPS panel by LG. There is no reference to this model tv having an IPS panel on LG's website yet other models clearly state with "LG's unique IPS panel". Even then though that could be a lie as my own tv is still advertised on the LG website as having an IPS panel and it hasn't.

brought a 49in Sony Bravia for £400. seriously considering taking it back at this price. HOT

You my friend sure are worthy of your username![/quote]


Unfortunately not in everything but thanks for the complement. I have to admit it took me a long time to source the information but found it in the end. Please bear in mind though that LG could change this anytime although the information was up to date as at 2014. My own tv has a December 2014 production stamp on it, was made in Poland and it all checks out with the references in my previous post.

The main reason I wanted to find this info is I purchased my current tv in January believing that it had an IPS panel by LG. In casual conversation with another member it was pointed out to me that the panel in my tv did not have an LG IPS panel as all of the replacement parts for my tv pointed to AU Optronics. To cut a long story short I started to do my own research and have learnt quite a lot on panels, manufacturers etc etc. The tv I have is still advertised on LG's website as having LG's Unique IPS panel. It doesn't. They have deliberately misled people on the website leading people into thinking that there is no panel lottery on my particular model which must be a major selling factor. With reference to this my purchase for the LG may have swayed me from Samsung who openly admit they outsource panels for their tv's.

I also think that false information may be given to retailers as after checking all of the LG's for sale on the JL website, sad I know, but just about every single LG tv that is not OLED on the JL website is advertised as having an IPS panel. This does not correspond with LG's own website and saw yesterday a post pointing to Amazon for the UF770V, again being advertised by Amazon as having an IPS panel but not confirmed on LG's website.

These models may have an IPS panel r they may not but at least the list is there for people to check and it would be interesting to see which tv's have which panel in them. I should start an LG blog......Most people possibly don't care, are happy with what they have bought or just assume that if they buy Samsung, Sony, Panasonic or LG that it has the manufacturer's panel in. Not so I'm afraid, not even with Sony.

Just for the record Currys who I bought my own tv from said it was too late for me to complain of the 'mis-selling'. I beg to differ however I have decided not to pursue my claim further with them.

Brilliant post - so, which letter/display is the best one? Which ones should be avoided?[/quote]


Well I am not an expert but it's probably one that's not in the list lol. Television viewing is very much a personal thing. The experts will sl*g off LG's for it's poor blacks (Light Graphics) is what they nickname LG. . My next tv however is unlikely to be LG but that will depend on what is available, spec, price etc.

If you have a look at rtings.com you can see a good range of 2014 and 2015 models they have tested. LG's always score low because of the blacks but rather than getting some fancy equipment out and seeing how they do in test, I prefer just to test with the naked eye.

I bought our 50LB650V because it was advertised with having an LG panel. 10 months later I find it hasn't. It has one made by AU Optronics. IWe also have another LG which has the CHI MEI panel in it. So much better than our old LT75. It's ok. The forums seem to criticise this manufacturer but to me it has a good picture.

The AU Optronics panel in our living room tv shows good display in HD and copes with fast motion very well. F1 is amazing to watch. However. On some programmes it is quite twitchy, jerky or juddery usually with small movements of people's heads. Something that was not there on our previous LG from 5 years ago although that one didn't cope anywhere near as well with fast moving objects. It's a bit annoying and maybe common in the new tv's although this could be the way the programme is transmitted and perhaps not the tv or the panel processing as it only does it on some programmes. It's a nice quality picture on HD. The AU Optronics panel would appear to be a better option than the CHI MEI panel according to the forums.

With such a choice of panels available on LG's and Samsungs it would be nice to be able to pick the manufacturer's own panel. In my opinion I think their panels will always be superior but would I notice the difference. Perhaps, but my gut feeling is that an LG with an LG panel or a Samsung with a Samsung panel will always be better. Is there truth in the rumour that Samsung ensure their tv's have their own panel in the tv when it goes for a technical review. Now why is that. Because it's better and Samsung know it.

Hope this helps but to add my son's Samsung had a beautiful picture and it has a Sharp panel in it. Unfortunately the panel failed after 2,600 hours of use. That's 2.5 hours a day in the 2 years 9 months. Currys repaired it free of charge though thanks to our 6 year consumer law and my son being able to use it to the letter.

And another short post from me !!

I hope sky are going to send me a christmas offer of 50% off for the next 12 months as I think I need to be watching more tv.

I am so tempted to get this TV to use as a monitor for editing my photography on. The reviews are awesome. It's interesting how often 4K tv reviews don't rave about how good the picture is which lets be honest is THE main feature whereas all the reviews I've seen about this TV all say how amazing the images are. What if it drops in price after I buy it though? I've been saying that about 4K tvs for about a year now - time to take the plunge methinks. gadzooks!

It's not shown as having an IPS panel on LG's website if this is something you are after. Best have a look at a display one in Currys and check out the product code and compare it with my list. Fourth letter from the right hand end of the product code gives you the manufacturer.

Hi, thanks for the advice, Smarguy1. Just to clarify - will all of these LG ULTRA 49UF675V 4K tvs have the same product code on the back? (sorry if it's a dumb question, I just don't want to get caught out!)

The product code may be different depending on a few factors, mainly where it's made and who's panel LG decide to use. I see a few retailers advertising this tv with an IPS panel. They are either getting incorrect information from their supplier or LG have put the CHI MEI IPS panel in and therefore don't want to say on their website for the model whether it is IPS or not. A physical check on one in store will confirm. If the 4th letter from the end from the right hand side is an 'H' then it is IPS but made by CHI MEI.

Note that on the LG website any models with IPS state that they have LG's unique IPS panel. If a panel is made by another manufacturer then it cannot be LG's unique panel can it. I will have a look in Currys next time I am in there as it will be interesting to see.

This looks like prime fodder for Beeb's Watchdog...

This looks like prime fodder for Beeb's Watchdog...



I was thinking about it but proof is needed. LG are not adverting with IPS but JL, Tesco, Amazon and other retailers are. Here is the link to the set on LG's site.

lg.com/uk/…75V

At no point in it's description does the manufacturer state it has an IPS panel. Following is the link to amazon and tesco which says it has an IPS panel

amazon.co.uk/LG-…LHE
tesco.com/dir…prd

Here is a link from LG's website which does have an IPS panel according to the website. See how it advertises the LG IPS panel.

lg.com/uk/…60V

So if the set posted has the 'cheaper CHI MEI IPS panel then the tv is correctly advertised by the retailer and LG know for sure who's panel is in the tv. Obviously not LG as they would have stated it on the website as it's a feature. However my own experience is shown in post 29 above. I wonder what Watchdog would make of that as Currys refused to offer any refund or exchange as I had the tv for 10 months even though it was advertised incorrectly.

I doubt anyone at Watchdog would even understand what the issue actually is.

"But as long as plays EastEnders, what's the problem?"

The Trade Descriptions Act 1968
The Trade Descriptions Act makes it an offence for a trader to make false or misleading statements about goods or services. It carries criminal penalties and is enforced by Trading Standards Officers, making it an offence for a trader to:
apply a false trade description to any goods
supply or offer to supply any goods to which a false trade description has been applied
make certain kinds of false statement about the provision of any services, facilities or accommodation

This has probably been superseded but the facts will still remain.

As for Eastenders.......no comment.
