These have the same HDMI2.0 rather than HDMI2.0A sockets needed for HDR material from a HDR blu-ray player?

I just purchased this TV from currys 10 days ago for £1999, anyone know if they will refund the difference if I contact them? I know amazon do.

I am sure with such big box items they would have a record of the serial number, unless you're brave enough to swap the serial number stickers too! oO

Great price though. However, the sweet point for me is when the 65inch version drops to £1500. Don't mind waiting for a couple more years.

You're referring to the curved variant of this TV (EG960V). This one has the HDMI 2.0a ports. Fantastic TV. I had been holding on to my plasma for years saying I wouldn't buy another TV until 4K OLEDs came below £2000. Bought this a couple of months ago and love it. Picture just blows everything out of the water.
Next one up with better picture quality is over £3000.

I've had my Pioneer plasma for 10 years but this is really tempting. The 5% Quidco makes it even better.

Got in touch with customer services, they told me usually they can only do so within 7 days of purchase but in this case as a goodwill gesture they would send me the difference on a giftcard. Happy days

If you know someone in the health service you can buy Curry's vouchers through healthservicesdiscounts for 5% off. You can still buy online and use quidco.

Thanks for the advice. It sounds like you're really happy with your tv. Saw the TV on display in Currys and HD and 4K looked amazing. What's the SD picture like? And have you tried using a PS4 or Xbox One on it? Any issues with the response rate?

Connectivity: HDMI 2.0 x 2,

I was a bit worried about SD pictures after reading the AVforums discussions. They look great however. I sit about 10 feet away from the TV and am slightly short sighted so that helps. The colours are amazing though and it was such an eye opener to see how much the display on my 6 year old plasma had faded with near constant use.
You can load up some SD contend onto a USB stick and take it to Curry's if you're concerned. I haven't played any games on the TV

​In relation to SD, Iwas dead set on getting a 910v when the price dropped to £1099 however, since I didnt act spontaneously and have missed the boat on that one, I am seriously considering this set.... we sit about 9-13ft away.

Most content will be SD then streamed or HD. I know most source material is garbage but am contemplting curve vs flat considering the price difference is now a few hundred as opposed to several hundreds. Decisions, decisions!

tempted can it play HDr content from 4k players ? can it be wall mounted ?

Yes, and yes, though for the second one, I believe you need a specific LG branded wall-mount which costs around 80 quids.

Though just today, the guy at PC World told me that's not the case and a 'normal' one should work, so a clarification from someone in the know here would be awesome.

How many 4k devices do you need to connect to it?.....

I've used my standard VESA mount that I had from my plasma. You can use it but the TV only had space for two screws/bolts. It's fine and secure for a standard mount but I wouldn't use it for a tilting bracket. Sure it would be fine to tilt but it took me enough convincing my wife just to let me get this one let alone the replacement for the one I didn't put up properly.

Are you sure? According to LG there is again a ZA and a ZD model, the latter having the HDMI2.0a ports.

I may be completely wrong but I still think you're thinking of the 960v(the curved one) not the 950v. The AVforums review has it down as 3 x HDMI 2.0a ports and there are comments in the forums saying that it doesn't have a za and a zd model.
In any case, happy to be proven wrong as I don't want to be giving people bad advice. One point though Is that regardless of the ports, HDR works perfectly with Amazon instant video. Haven't tried it on Netflix yet

even the cheap vestel's do come with 4 full functioning 2.0 hdmi connections. 2 only seems ridiculous on a tv of this price and I associate it with a cheap tv apart from the fact that LG is nothing special.

Nothing special? This is pretty much generally regarded as the best TV set currently available.

Oh and you'll be lucky to get more than 1 2.0 HDMi never mind 2 2.0a ones from a Vestel!

Not sure if applies to this set but do not expect much in terms of quality at this price. Lets not forget, they used to be called GOLDSTAR, lol
