Found 20th Nov
Curry's currently selling this at £499 but until tue they will give you 10%off using the code LSTV10 bringing it down to £450! I'm awaiting to see if John Lewis will price match as they've got it with a 5year guarantee, for the money is this a very good tv. Any advice would be appreciated anyone who has this model can you tell me how it performs & also how it looks as I've not seen it physically to look at.

You've put £499 in the title. Maybe change that.

I bought this yesterday from John Lewis and they matched Currys price, waiting for delivery next Friday

Well it's got one thing going for it, its cheap.

Pity its a 3K set in disguise, waits for the blah, blah you wont notice, from the mugs who has already bought them.

Shady LG with this range

Don’t forget to turnon 4K hdr manually.
Plug in your device first,sky q, Xbox etc then go to settings, general then head all the waaaaay down to the bottom and enable hdmi for your chosen device.
Took me a month to work this out.

It's not a 4k panel. Its RGBW.
Its basically a con by LG but in their defence, if you want a picture that looks better than most "normal" LCD panels and can't afford an OLED, these panels are nice.
But not 4k.

Put it this way... My old man has a 6 year old plasma tv that can "display a 1080p signal".
It accepts a 1080p signal.
It displays it on screen.
It's actually a stunning picture.
But it's not 1080p.....
Does this bother him? Not in the least.

Thanks
Is there any way to check RGBW on other TV? This is not mentioned in any specification.

Only LG do RGBW I believe.

That's a video from Samsung's marketing department (lg's biggest rival) posted by a user that has previously admitted he's not even looked at the TVs to see what the end result of the technology is.

It's just hysteria

What matters is the end result. If this TV is better than any other 49/50" £500 TV then whether it uses a conventional subpixel layout or not is irrelevent.

You also have to take into account the impact hdr has on colour and image quality. And by all accounts the LG has better hdr than the samsung

Please feel free to point out exactly where I said I have not even looked at these TVs, oh wait you can't.

So that video is lying and does not clearly explain the pixel structure.

You must be one of those mugs who bought one, bless.

so who actually has this TV and thinks the quality of the image is acrtually that bad?

Rather a good question I've Sat back & took on board what has been said but for £450 is that not a good tv?

The video flip-flops between claiming that pixels are made up of a white subpixel and two others in one scene and then completely ignores the white subpixels and claims it has 2880 pixels in the next. It's not even internally consistent, let alone a sensible overview of how the technology works.

A TV is not a studio monitor, it's job is not to accurately represent the video signal. All TVs mess around with subpixels, change their values and so on, to make the image look better. Everyone would agree that stuff like de-noise processing improves the picture even though it's being less faithfully reproduced!

TVs are judged by how good they make the picture look, not how accurately they can reproduce it. It doesn't matter if a technology is theoretically less detailed if it means the end result can be better - either because it directly improves things or because it allows more budget to be spent on things with a greater influence on the picture quality.

No apology then

2880 is correct for RGB with and additional 960 white.

Except they're used together, not separately, so you can't count them like that when talking about pixels.

Funnily enough display specifications use that terminology too, now who do I believe more...

Ffs it's just a TV Cmon!

So, I'm looking at the 49UJ710v as a potential purchase - can anyone here help me to understand the significant differences from the 49UJ670v? With a fairly strict budget of £500, any other specific recommendations?

People aren't mugs because they want the best picture their money can buy. Granted, some people are TV nerds, and will try and find faults in every TV that is posted on here, but for the everyday person, they just want good quality, picture and sound for a price that won't break the bank. I've been on here browsing at various TV's, and the comments that go along with them, and it's led me on an endless chase, because some fan boy has put negative comments about a product.
Can't we have a poll showing which TV is the best buy for a certain price range without getting all geeky about a pixel! It would help a lot of consumers out.
