Is there a way to know which 4k TV are doing this, because they obviously don't advertise it do they. It borders on fraudulent

I am sorry not. But once at home a simple 4-4-4 chroma test can be performed and if not perfect it means it is affected. Anyway, usually the cheaper one

Yes, if you check displayspecifications.com/en/…517 it shows this model has an RGBW panel.

I think any 6xx series LG 4k tv's are the "fake" 4K (i.e. would include this one). You need a 7xx series 4k TV for the normal rgb pattern.

On balance, it's a good sized screen, with high resolution, plenty of useful features and connection and crucially 6 year guarantee.. for a modest £550.

I knew it would start the HDR/Pixel debate but it's not sub quality even for that money.

Yes the display spec website does say on some displays if its rgb or wrgb, but on some of them that field is blank or missing

Even then I think you could only tell if doing a side by side comparison next to a display known to be full 4k rgb

towards the bottom it does state 2880 RGB and 960 W... which gives you the 3840 needed for 4K

As far as I'm aware all of LG's RGBW panels are IPS and according to the site that HiSense TV is using a VA one instead so there's a fair chance it's normal RGB. But you would be best to try to find a unit to demo somewhere as the picture quality will depend on much more than just the sub-pixel structure.

Glad to see so many here are now wise to LGs cheaper so called 4k TV lines, brings a tear to my eye.
You'd be seething if you bought a BMW M5 V8 but found that only 6 cylinders had spark plugs.

Well, now that depends. If I got that BMW pretty cheap and spent say £30 per spark plug for a full set then I would still consider it a deal

​My current 42" LG LCD screen has been going strong for 10 years without any major issues. I'm waiting for it to stop working so I can justify buying a new one but the resilient **** isn't giving up.
While I appreciate this a far more expensive product, I've bought the below...

Amazing TV so far...if I get 5/6 years out of it I'll be happy...no doubt by then OLED would have dropped and people will be commenting how OLED is rubbish compared to the next new thing they bring out! lol

Do you really think 95% of consumers would notice the difference between the two? As such, who the hell cares as long as the picture is great. I've got the 49" version and its brilliant.

not really would put it down to Brexit and then try to get our own back on the them for a similar thing..:p
It's 8 bit , not real 4k
Can get the Hisense M7000 for £609
If your so set on buying a LG atm don't bother with anything less than a UH850V

The 770v is 8bit+2bit dithering. Only the 950v is true 10bit and of course the lg oled 4k range.

Tbh guys unless you got a 4k player its worth keeping what u got. Only a few films are in 4k and you will soon watch them and nothing else to use 4k for. Yeah maybe so colour is more vibrant and sharper and thats what your paying for

Of course if u got the budget for it. I just got the m7000 hisense for £609 with ao after price matching and discount code plus £5 for next day delivery. I am not entirely happy with it. Bit slow on starting up, compared my UH750 I had. EPG is slow. Tried watching catch up slow and doesnt connect. Might send it back and get the 49" LG with dolby vision
* EPG solved via software update provided by Hisense but you lose freeview play for the benfit
