Been after a 4K (max £500) for a while, this seems like a pretty good spec.

Would love some comments on this, got one reserved but haven't collected yet, I've had a 50" lg plasma for 8 years but could really do with a tv that has no glare (new home/windows)

Same situation here but after 65 inch 4K 3D.
No glare sounds good

HDR could only be for downloading contents only, so it might not work from an UHD blu ray player. Even if it does do not expect anything amazing, must be of a low brightness compared to the lastest Samsung or any premiumTV-HDR. Brightness for proper hdr must me at least 600 nits (older proper HDR TV's) and latest premium TV's must have 1000nits brightness to be called premium. Also, do not trust LG that very much, chances also are that it is a faux 4k TV used by LG only and on the lower models:

If you using it with the pc it is fine but you can buy better and for less, Do not be carried out by excitement, if you already got a normal 1080p tv that will be better for watching SD and HD. Wait until prices will come down and eventually the premium tv will be a more affordable standard. Do not forget that you do not get any 4k tuner included at the moment.
If you cannot wait at all just go ahead, I am on my 4th 4ktv already in less than 2 year,lol.

4 TVs in 2 years ? Have they gone wrong ?

I've been tracking this TV for a few weeks, and the price drop has now tipped me over into a purchase. I've also gone for RnC, so should be picking it up later.... But still don't get why the price is so low? Is it a particularly poor TV? It seems reviewed well, and decently enough specced

​how do they fake it? Resolution states 3840 x 2160. Surely they can't state that if it doesn't have that many pixels?

I really thought this was the one, but it seems you never see a tv on here that people more or less agree is good.

NO, 2 returned as they were crap including Samsung and Panasonic, one sold for a profit and now a cheap hitachi (vestel) wich I use as a pc monitor. Incidentally the cheapest and the one that I am happy with

Samsung is the best for upscaling. Only returned because despite being hdmi 2.0 it did not do chroma 4-4-4 and I wanted to use it as a pc monitor at the time. Spoke to a Samsung adviser recently at currys. he said that upscaling picture is been improved on the 2016 models. Sony upscaling should also be good. Do not buy older models.
Samsung does not make it official but at least the top models do have a 4k satellite tuner, can already pick up 4 or 5 4k test broadcast. It did the one I had 2 years ago and was also the lowest model at the time

By using a White pixel to fill in the gaps, it makes the panels so much cheaper to manufacture apparently.

Ive had this TV for a few days now, and couldn't be happier. For the money I've paid, happy with the upgrade for sure!

Same here.

Got this TV today, and at the price you really can't complain.
The picture quality is excellent, and a real upgrade on my 42" LG 3D 1080P set that I've had for the last 4 years.
Can't wait to have Sky Q fitted next week to get even more out of this set.
Fake 4K or not, seriously impressed for under £500
