Found 21st Jun 2016
Great price for an oled TV comes with 6 Years Warranty.

Also available at John Lewis, both 910 and 930 models.

Popular question answers, before we get silly comments:
Yes, this is 1080p, not 4K.

Yes, it is not cheap, but it's OLED.

No, 55 inch Bush TV from Argos is not better than this.

Yes, there are still a few issues with LG OLED TVs, but picture quality is superior and cannot be compared to LCD tvs out there.

Thanks

not 4k why?
£1099 for a 1080p TV am I missing something? Seems expensive. I would have imagined it would have been 4k aswell.
micsey

not 4k why?



Because there's not a chance you're getting a 4K OLED for anywhere near that
micsey

not 4k why?



​because it cost £1000 ad oled and add another £800

It's an OLED, last year those were selling for £2500
micsey

not 4k why?


Coz the computer says no
Very good price heat added
Excellent price.

But expect cold votes from Samsung chavs who will be like.. not Bling / doesn't Beeb/ not quadroon Dom/ bling tech ect..

This is quality.

Not SUHD... Quantum dot ect.. which is just rubbish being marketed as something..
getting very tempting at that price...
I do not believe that Organic LED TV is much better than ordinary 1k TV let alone 4k ?
It is just a way from LG and Panasonict to allow them to sell their TV on premium price.

You must be blind then. OLED is superior in every way to standard LED.

OLED is similar to Plasma but actually better. OLED > Plasma > LED / LCD
Ho Guys

Di you notice that I said

You could get 55" 1080p LED for les than half of this price. It is difficult to justify to pay double for not much improvement. Is it not better to invest in 4K just, it more expensive but you could play 4k movie properly ??

didnt some cherry healy show tell everyone larger screen size is only important if you want to sit further away..

i was thinking you could get 5K 27" apple mac for £1450 - so you get good computer with 1 terrabyte hard drive as well as better than 4K screen

am i missing something?

I'd rather have 1080p OLED over 5k IPS, IPS glow does my head in. Hell, I'd take VA over IPS.

then you've evidently never seen one in operation.

i still have a seven year old plasma tv because lcd is, quite frankly, crap. you get motion blur, you get poor contrast ratios, and plasma beats it into a cocked hat.

oled, on the other hand - you get the power usage and colour saturation that you're used to with lcd, but the motion and contrast you get with plasma. it's the best of both worlds. and yes, i know from personal experience - my dad has this exact tv in his house, and it's superb.

as to 4k - complete waste of time, unless you have a screen that's over 65" and/or you sit less than 8ft away from it. the eye is physically incapable of resolving beyond a certain point, and 95% of households sit less than 8ft away. does it make a difference? sure - if you're going to sit close enough to resolve the pixels. most people are borderline for 720p vs 1080p anyway, and that's before you even consider 4k source material availability (next to nil at present) and the fact that HDR has two competing standards at 4k so that's not decided either, and you've got a 50% chance of guessing right.

put it this way: *cinemas* still use 2k (2048x1080) on their screens, which is only a little bit higher than the 1920x1080 (1080p) used for home screens. have you ever thought that a cinema looked grainy? of course not. and those are on comparatively *huge* screens.

tl;dr version: 4k is worthwhile for a few limited use cases, but for 95% of home use 1080p is plenty good enough. you're better off having a high quality 1080p set (OLED, for example) than a 4k crap LCD.

and as for this tv - it's a worthwhile upgrade from any LCD tv (except maybe at the very top end - but then you're talking £3-4k on an LCD, and there are better OLED sets available at that price), but it's a sideways step from plasma. i'd swap my plasma for it, but mainly because it's a larger diagonal, thinner and lighter, and uses a lot less power. picture-wise, though, it's very close. plasma still just edges this set out on fast motion (although in fairness i've not been allowed to switch off all of the pointless image processing!), but the colour range is much better on the OLED.

I went into a TV shop last year and looked at about 30 TVs at standard distances, trying not to look at the specifications, pay too much attention to the brand etc.

The TV that stood out by an absolute league ahead of everything else was the LG 1080p OLED. I stood there for about 15 minutes struggling to comprehend just how much better these things are than everything else including all of the 4k, quantum dot and everything else being toted....

God only knows how good the 4k OLEDs are.....

​banding, ghosting, dirty screen effect, poor blacks, you clearly have no clue what makes a decent picture in terms of a tv.

oled is superior in every way. like comparing rolls royce with lada

Well, people are selling their 1080p 55" plasma on ebay for less than £200. If you play a waiting game You could even get it for less than £100 collect in person as not many people want it and it is difficult to p&p it.
People do not want it as it is very heavy and the energy will cost them a fortune.

I am aware that OLED is LED so a siginifaicnt improvement but cost twice as many as no organic LED for the same size ... Is it worthy to invest ??

Don't know where you'll find a good 55 plasma for 200 quid. Last panasonic plasmas are still selling for 1500 quid. People are selling 50 inch 10 year old pioneer Kuros for 600-800 quid.

OLED is a new technology that delivers a superior picture quality. At this price, the TV is a steal, to get anything close to that picture quality in 4k you'll need to spend at least twice as much.
Got this very same panel. Excellent TV for the money.

There is very little 4k material as it is, and no 5k or a few years.


absolute bargain. I've had one for almost 5 months and I paid 1799. only TV I would swap my plasma for, stunning picture. Have to agree with bladesUK.
The 930V is also on sale for the same price,

​BT and Sky are coming with 4k boxes. Playstation and xbox are both coming with 4k ray. All the new movies and shows are being recorded in 4k. 1080p is already history.
Plasma is finished. That's why no new TVs come in Plasma and all plasma factories closed. It is electricity waster and bad for eyesight. Just go to any rubbish collection . Lots of Plasma for you you to collect from there for free and flog for a profit
