Are you happy with it? If yes, ignore the tech chasers. If not, maybe that's why.

You watch the TV, not the spec sheet!

This is the reason LG can't advertise the 'UHD Certified' logo.

Basically all the LG LCD 4K TVs under the 850v model use an RGBW panel rather than an RGB panel.

Why not proper 4'


Basically the RGBW panels have a third of the resolution of a UHD panel, they only resolve 3840 x 2160 pixels on a black and white checkerboard test pattern (as far as I remember). It's debatable on how much this will affect real world content, but it can be most noticeably seen through use with PCs and text.
well thats misleading then...
So any ideas what the difference is between this and the 49UJ630V for £399 on Amazon?

Yeah the 850v and I think there is also a 950v are the only two I know of other than the OLEDs that do not have an RGBW panel and the 850 only starts at 55".

I have the UH850V, it's a fantastic TV in most areas and the operating system is very responsive, but I'd recommend that if you like watching movies in the dark, it might not be the TV for you. During the day or at night with bias lighting it's great, but it struggles when the lights are off (most LCDs do).

I currently have the LG 49UF850V. To be honest more than happy with it despite any argument of not true 4K.... Not sure I could tell the difference if next to a true 4K either? Be good to know if an obvious difference or not?

I was looking at the 55SJ850V but personally it's more than I want to spend at the moment....

I think the point is that they can’t say ‘UHD Certified’ as it needs to meet a specific standard to be able to display that logo and the lower end 4K LG TVs don’t meet it due to the use of RGBW.

I think your TV has a proper RGB panel anyway, it doesn't have a RGBW panel.

​That's not a UHD certification. That's just a name from LG.

This is the UHD certification.

I’m not disputing that the res on this TV isn’t UHD, I’ve seen those articles, however the pixel dimensions you’ve listed there are 4K UHD. I haven’t seen a single TV with 4096x2160, and this is commonly referred to as Cinema 4K because it’s so rare.
My Samsung is phew

Certified UHD

Watch films as though you were part of the action. The Samsung UE50MU6120 50" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TV lets you experience beautifully vibrant colours with exceptional clarity and contrast to fully immerse you in your favourites programs.
I bought this tv from Sainsbury's for £420 last week and I think it is a great tv, the picture quality is good on streaming videos, virgin, and PS4 I really couldn't care less what the tech geeks say, I think it is good value tv for the money and would recommend it, I'll also add that as we headed for the checkout another shopper said they had bought one before Xmas and it was a great tv. Hope this helps people unsure.

Unfortunately 4K and 2K (which often gets confused with 1080p) to some extent are misused phrases by manufacturers to promote televisions, services and devices. 2K* is 2048 x 1556. 4K* is 4096 x 3112. When UHD became popular there was a shift by manufacturers to introduce the 4K label alongside it (I guess it tested well with market research), so we have 4K UHD Blu-rays (that have a resolution that's technically not 4K) and 4K (that's not 4K) UHD TVs.

The just aren't many consumer displays that are 4K 4096 x 2160 (or 3112) because there's no need for them, the industry standard for consumer televisions is 16:9. Professional and Cinema standards are just another kettle of fish. So we have UHD which is a broadcast standard and consumer disaply standard given the "4K" monikker.

*These resolutions are used for 2K and 4K scans and workflows before they get mastered into 1920 x 1080 or 4096 x 2160 et cetera.

I have the same TV! But have yet to open and use it, it is definitely UHD certified though, right? Also, if what you're saying about the imagery is true, I can't wait to get it up and running! 😃
So is the resolution of my TV UHD certified? It's 3840 x 2160???
Is this the 10-bit v 8-bit+2 argument or something else ?
same price at John Lewis and 5 year warranty
LG has broken HDR especially in game mode. The latest update makes it super dark for no reason. LG say working as intended. So no fix in sight. Thought I mention if anyone wanted this for gaming
