umm trustworthy site?
Is this a true 4k or one of the fake 4k tv's that LG are offering, or is that faux 4k. That's the one with the extra white pixel which cannot offer true 4k according to the experts.

My post was actually a question and not a statement. However, after more research it would appear that the 770v does not have the extra white pixel and therefore is a true 4k screen. Some other LG's are not. You can read the reviews below. First review would be for the US version of the 770v which is the UF7700 over there. It doesn't give a very good review tbh although plugging fancy equipment to a tv can sometimes not relate to what you see with the naked eye. The 770v looks absolutely amazing in Currys when running the manufacturer's 4k video on usb. However, when I changed it over to BBC1, channel 1 and channel 101 it was not quite as good as the 1080 Sony it was next to. I thought it was better than the Samsung UE50JU6800 that was on the other side of it though. Had I been buying that day I would have bought the Sony or the LG 49UF850v which was the same price as the 770v.

Read the review below for the UF6400 which would be the 640V over here. It's under resolution.

I suppose it's how you view it but personally I think if you pick a tv you want to buy, try it on terrestrial television in the shop. Yes you can do this in Currys if you ask. If you like it, buy it and who cares if its 4k, 1k, smart, android or it has a magic remote. It's all down to individual taste and budget.
Thanks smartguy1 just looked at the link to hdtvtest news regarding the extra white pixel, was not aware of that. Would the other two who commented on you like to say something?

​well said
When did buying a TV get so complicated??

I followed the link from the LG 49UF640v deal and now I'm in a pickle again.

Would anyone please be able to tell me why I shouldn't buy the other one? (It's a wedding/house warming present for someone). Thank you
The 770v is a true 4k and the 640v isn't. The 770v is a better tv in comparison but personally I would buy the 850v from Currys at £629.00 or the Sony KDL-50W805 or 807 or 809 as i think the picture quality of the Sony is better on SD and HD freeview transmissions.

Excuse my ignorance but how can it not be a true 4k?(what decides if something is true 4k or not).

Out budget is £450-£500 - I couldn't push it to 600 unfortunately. Do you think I should just get the 640 or look for a different 4k smart tv that's 49"+?
(I'm going to now google the cost of the Sony ones but I can't see them being affordable. )

It would be rude of me to think you ignorant so please see the link below. It is an ongoing debate.

You can also refer to my post number 7 above.

The tv has some good reviews but personally I would prefer a higher spec 1080 tv such as the Sony. Whilst the Sonys are about £599 to £649 at the beginning of the month the 809C 50' Sony was £549.00. I doubt if you will get a Sony at 50" for £500.00 or less. Remember that tv prices always come down especially when new models come out. I bought an LG exactly one year ago today in Currys sale at £499.00 for a 50" smart tv. I thought I got a cracking deal but to be honest the tv is ok but nothing special. It's an LG 50LB650V. It has a nice screen but the WEBOS operating system is awful and the smart facilities are rubbish. After buying an Amazon Fire tv box recently I don't really see why people insist on having a smart tv as the dedicated boxes are so much faster and take up no space at all.

What I really wanted at the time was the Sony W829 but it was another £179.00 and couldn't justify the extra expense so bought the LG. Two months later the Sony was down to £549.00, fifty quid more than I paid for the LG and a far better tv in my opinion.

If I was you I would probably save myself some cash and buy the LG 50LF561v at Currys for £329.00 and an Amazon Fire TV box or the slightly better model LF580v at £379.00. Please note that both the 561v tv and the UF640v only have two hdmi sockets which wouldn't be near enough for me although on the money you save an hdmi splitter would be easily affordable. They are about a tenner.
