LG 55EG910V 1080P OLED TV: John Lewis and Richer Sounds

17
Found 28th Nov 2015
This has dropped to £1,399 after dropping to £1,499 yesterday.

I know it's not 4K but I'll be hard pressed to notice any difference between 1080p and 4K on a 55" screen at a 10 ft viewing distance - so a 1080p OLED beats any 55" LED available at this price point.

It's the cheapest I've seen this 55EG910V model, which replaces the 55EC930V model.

Comes with a 5 year guarantee with John Lewis and 6 years at Richer Sounds.

Might be nice to say where from? I'm with you though a 1080p oled has to be better than a 4K led. There's just too many TVs to choose from though!

How are you going to feel if this time next year you can have OLED and 4K for the same price?

I'll not have any ill feelings anyway because, like I say in the OP, the difference in quality between 1080p and 4K is barely noticeable from my viewing distance unless I go for a much larger screen.

At the end of the day, there's always going to be new technology just around the corner and, if I want a new TV and can afford it, I'm not going to wait forever for the price of the latest technology to drop in price.

You would have paid £3500 for a 1080p OLED just last year so most of the price drops have already taken place.

The link takes you to the John Lewis site but your point is taken and I've edited the title.

I notice a massive difference and I have a 49inch 4k

That's the only way to look at technology, isn't it? you'll wait forever for the price to come down, which it will, but what do you do in the meantime!

So a 55" OLED for £1400 - looks like OLED is becoming a reality

But what are you comparing the 49" 4K TV to - usually, people are comparing it to their old tv which was overdue a replacement due to being 5+ years old. I can guarantee you that you wouldn't notice the difference between a 4K TV and a modern 1080P at the same level of the range unless you're sitting EXTREMELY close to the TV.

I'd love to hear an honest opinion from you if your were to compare your 49" 4K TV to this 1080P OLED side-by-side.

The one exception is where you're watching passive 3D - and is the only reason I'd consider paying extra for a 4K tv at 55".

Of course, I expect a lot of people to disagree with the above facts - just like a fully expect people in 5 years time to argue that they notice a big difference in quality between their 40" 4K TV and their 40" 8K TV.

In my opinion, they shouldn't even be making 4K TVs below 50" but the manufacturers need the latest buzzwords on their specs to increase sales.

Great deal - nice spot OP!

Looks nice but my LG 4k TV will take a lot of beating

I have the latest Samsung 48 inch and honestly if you stream 4k at 60 frames on YouTube, the difference is amazing compared to 1080p

Whilst this truly is an excellent deal, people should consider that fact that we're five weeks away from CES 2016 now.

Some may prefer to wait to see what's announced at that. Others may be happy to go ahead and purchase, what truly is, an amazing TV.

Price matched at Richer Sounds with 6 year warranty. Also, 55EC930V now available for £1,349.

I saw this in JL today and the picture is excellent, the blacks are really black (and not grey) on the OLED screen and wipe the floor with any LED screen I compared it to.
I just wish the 4k version of this set wasnt £2249 ! The clarity on the 4k set was even better but not worth the extra £800 imo.

oled all the way I have the 4k one. buy this is a very good deal

this tv will guaranteed


Think I will save up for the 4k OLED though

Bought this last week from John Lewis £1499 on Black Friday, then reduced to £1399 on Saturday. Rang them to get the difference back without a hitch. Delivery was wed between 2pm-9pm, driver rang to say doubtful if he could get to me as he had a lot of drops, and hey presto No TV. No communication on there part, day off work for nothing. Rang customer services open till midnight earlier, "they knew nothing"very poor from John Lewis. First and last order
