£350 to £375 ...You'll be waiting a while

Excellent advice.
My John Lewis TV died after 4.5 years. They gave me a choice of 2 TVs comparible cost with 1 year warranty, or if I picked my own TV of increased value (I picked one £20 more) then I'd get the 5 year warranty again.
Can't really ask for more than that.

Finally somebody who speaks sense! I tell people all the time a modern TV with 1 year warranty is insane. You need a 5 or 6 year as they don't make em like they used to.

My last LG had screen issues just after only 11 months of owning it... LG replaced the screen, another 11 months down the line and it happened again! RicherSounds offered a like for like so I added some money and got a bigger better Samsung which touch wood is working fine apart from the 3D stopped (never use it anyways).
Cheapest this telly has been according to price spy, previously £449 was cheapest. Voted hot
Looked at this in Currys 2 days ago. Stand is very flimsy, ok if wall mounted.

Rolls Royce make better cars than Lada.

True!
John Lewis offered this TV to me after my 3.5 years old 47la620 TV stopped working (screen). Happy with replacement but I wouldn't buy it myself. Very thick like 10 years old tv
saw this one at a john lewis and as others have mentioned it is very flimsy indeed. feels cheap as well. does anyone know if the panel on this one is a rgbw?

When you say comparable cost - do you mean the price you paid 4.5 years ago? Or what it was now worth after 4.5 years?

Just curious
The better 750V was little more than this last month through coop, so not sure why this is such a good deal. Probably priced about right. We need a Luke warm button.

I bought the original for £750, 4.5 years later they allowed me £650 against another, which I thought was very generous considering what you could then buy with that money.

It was £459 with coop last month. Just don't think this is an amazing deal compared to that.

I'd quite like OLED but don't want 55" (49" max) .... Therefore I cannot seem to have it!

Yes. All the LG non OLED sets are rgbw apart from the 850 series upwards. If the last 3 digits before the V are less than 850 it has a sh*tty non 4k capable panel, both in quality and colour accuracy. That includes some TVs that cost near a grand.
Problem with 4k tv this small you have to sit no more than 6 feet away to see its full potential

I don't know, but reckon I could get a Lada for under £400
Not really a 4k tv. A quarter of the pixels are white to give increased brightness/contrast but effectively this means it can only resolve a 3k picture not 4k. Just look up RGBW pixel structure.

I have a RGBW panel myself and love it but I love it because its a 3D set and like 3D content on occasion both movies and games. However without passive 3D support I'd personally rather have a full 4k tv. The only other issue for low cost panels is some which have a RGB pixel structure have much lower brightness. I saw a Hisense model on here recently stated as HDR and yet only has a brightness of 200cd/m2 which is lower than my non HDR 4k (3k really) TV. I'd take the LG over Hisense for reliability, but maybe Hisense over LG for case quality but neither this set or the budget Hisense models are really serious 4k HDR sets. Saying that my next upgrade is OLED anyway I expect.
Need a new Xbox one any about?
Bought and returned. I use a TV for gaming, YouTube and an occasional movie. The huge flaw with this TV is the brightness. Whatever I did to tune the picture quality I just could not make it better. I know that brightness and vividness might be a personal preference but cmon. Added additional £80 and bought he MU6400 from Samsung...different world.
PS: Gaming mode makes the picture even dimmer...just terrible for gaming imo

LG is an IPS panel with the benefits and disadvantages that brings. It's also a budget RGBW panel. I guess the main reason you would buy a IPS panel nowadays is the much wider field of view so if you have a wide living room with people placed at higher angles to the tv display it would be the preferable type. For brightness IPS panels are less because they have a lower contrast range so if you put the same power LED backlight behind a IPS and VA panel the VA panel would almost always give a brighter high contrast display for those directly in front of the screen.

I don't think LG is developing IPS at the same rate as VA either. It's clear OLED is a much better display but currently much more expensive to make. I'm sure LG are more focused on improving and bringing that technology down to lower price point. Don't get me wrong there are LG IPS tv's that perform overall better than VA panel tv's but most of the time the reverse is true on a similar price basis.

Prefer it to be thicker...more likely the sound will be fuller and not need a further £150 worth of sound bar just to make the set audible.

I like your optimistic logic. It could be true but this is a budget LG set. It's possible to be a oversized case with worse sound unfortunately. I just don't think a company would be happy with their budget sets sounding better than their mid range and higher end models with thinner cases.
Not sure if anyone else has had delayed delivery on this?

It was supposed to be delivered to me yesterday, but wasn't. Today the tracking shows that it went from Rugby to Crewe and then on to Warrington, when I am in Birmingham!!

So, as the 49" Sony in todays Amazon deals is only an extra £20, I cancelled the LG and ordered the Sony.
Amazon are using muppets to deliver. Received a completely smashed LG, yes the order I had cancelled. No sign of the Sony TV. Absolute joke really.

I think a lot of that is due to Amazon being busy around this time of year , and contracting work out to Eastern European delivery drivers , who TBH couldn't give a flying s**t about handling goods in a way they're not going to be damaged.

The same thing has happened to me twice now, not impressed!!
