No 4K

Hot for being OLED under a £1000.

Shame it's curved but like the fact it's not 4K as unless you are watching or playing games in 4K 1080p upscales normal tv viewing better!

I have to admit i don't even notice the curve , Best TV i have ever owned.

Id rather a 1080p OLED than a 4k non OLED. To me the jump to OLED is far more impressive than the jump to 4K.

Banding issues.

So put the grand towards an OLED 4K set.

You're welcome

​at this price hahaha good joke

The 4K one is probably one of THE best tv's out there for around £1500. OLED seems to be the way to go for stunning blacks better than the KURO plasmas from years ago.

Hot , can't wait for the 65 to drop below 2500 mark

I know great isn't it; especially if one has no 4k feeds.

oh dear you must like mottled dark grey very much; personallly I prefer to see black when it should be black and dark grey when it should be dark grey but each to their own.....at least you will have 4k dark greys...

Well nearly. privat.bahnhof.se/wb1…jpg

I was ready to buy an LG OLED until I saw that picture from a Pioneer Kuro telly from donkeys years ago, which produces a fraction of the 'nits' of a modern telly. Tell me which one you think looks better?

KURO definitely! However OLED is still at it's infancy in terms of big screen TVs. I still watch my baby sized Sony OLED and imagine the day when OLED will be as good as the KURO. Panasonic's new beaut OLED is matching the KURO, nearly, but paying near 10k for a telly? it's no longer the high roller days for people like me

Yeah, ditto. I've got a £3k Panasonic in the back bedroom gathering dust, does a lovely native 480p

Oh man hindsight is such a bitSh

55" OLED TV, for under £1k.
I've never seen a OLED TV for this price.
Why is this not super hot?

Here's a decent review, which goes into detail comparing 1080p vs 4k.

OLED TV should be far better than any LCD TV out there.
But, can you link me to this 55" 4k Sony tv for £900.
I'd like to see how the Sony LCD compares with the LG OLED TV.
Edited by: "sunama" 1st Jan

Damm 4k and I'd of pulled the trigger.Still a stunning TV if you've never seen one in real life.

2016 4k Oleds got a huge bump in life expectancy of the panel

Just like plasmas though, don't leave static images for more than 60 minutes

D
oled tech is glorious and to be honest, if you aren't a gamer, you probably don't need 4k for a few years

This deal is hot

I'd personally wait a couple of months to see what Samsung's QLED models are about and how much their price may be. Samsung's answer to OLED

​Me too love the new hdr Samsung tvs.Prefer Samsung but wish they would do oled

Great TV but in the end I went for a Sammy 7000 as I couldn't handle the curve. If this was flat then that would have swung it despite 4k and proper HDR on the Samsung. The blacks are very good on this years LCDs but not quite as good as an OLED.

I think you mean the 'dark greys are very good on this years LCDs'; they only do black if the set is switched off.

Can't believe people moan about the curve .Yes I actually own the model and the curve is very slight indeed .,its also the best looking TV bar non with no surround on it.The picture is better than a 4 k Samsung I own without worrying about lack of 4 k content.
Only thing I would advise is get a 5 year warranty if paying a grand

If you have to choose, OLED > 4K
There's no contest.
Although 4K OLED would be near perfection.

I've got this and depends on where you position it for the curve to be a problem or not - it reflects light in twice as many places. It's really not a positive in any instance.

That said, this TV is the best I've ever had in terms of picture - by a long long way. The only TV's I've seen that are better are the newer LG OLED's. With the OLED you get perfect blacks - everyone knows that, but you also get near-perfect viewing angles and none of that weird smearing you get with LED TV's. It really is a brill TV that is let down by a single tuner and a slow interface.
I bought mine for £1000 with 5 year warranty and am pleased as punch.

Just replaced a Samsung KS7000 which had motion issues for this and picture quality is much better, the blacks are perfect and although it lacks the brightness of the KS7000, I found the HDR content on that washed out due to the overpowering brightness and lack of actual depth to the colour. If you are unsure on a TV to get for £1000, I would say go for this. A cheap 4K set will have more detail (if you look closely and have 4k content to run on it) but the motion, colours and black levels of this TV wipe the floor with anything else (apart from 4k OLED and maybe £1500+ leds).

Wait a second.....

You traded in a HDMI 2.0 / HDCP 2.2 set in for a HDMI 1.4 set? (Correct me if I'm wrong but pretty sure the LG is 1.4 HDMI)... Just find it bizarre, unless of course you're happy to drop another £1000 in 12-18 months.

I've also pounced on the 55KS7000 - no judder or stutter and truly fantastic blacks (no bleed either), used the avforums "day" KS7500 settings.

OLED is amazing, I absolutely love it. It is however in the same infancy period Plasma had, in 2017 they will likely nail some good peak brightness. Samsung will move to OLED eventually, their current Quantum Dot TVs are fantastic and in many ways give OLED a run for its money or best it... But in 2 years LG will run away with it and their won't be any route for Samsung to respond without going the same. Plus they'll be the only major manufacturer not doing so soon.

In 2018 LG will have worked out all the kinks and I believe that'll be the time to jump on board... Late 2018 / early 2019 once the sets they show at CES 2018 drop a little in price. Although might be late 2019 / early 2020 before we can all buy a reasonably price set which can achieve 4000nits. It'll be at that point you won't need to buy a new TV till a new format change... I'm not even sure we'll see consumer 8K TVs either, think even the marketing departments will draw the line.

I don't doubt that oled is better than the Samsung's for deep blacks. if it's just TV your watching or blue rays this may be a better buy. but people with new hdr 4K games consoles you would be mental to buy this. oled 4K on the other hand is another story. But the thing is even for the base b model oled it's double the price of the samsung ue557000 with worse input lag. I'm a gamer and in an ideal world I'd love the LG e series oled are the oleds really worth 2,3,4 times as much as the Samsung 7000 series? I didn't think so so I went with the ue557000 and I'm very happy at that

If you're happy then good, but it's widely known that the ks7000 especially the 55" is a real lottery as to whether you get a good panel one or not. It puts me off with the terrible QC of Samsung these days. Reading the thread on AvForums makes you wonder why it's so popular, but then some are happy but it seems to be down to the panel manufacturer - swapping out TVs 3 and even 4 times to get a satisfactory one is not my "cup of tea" time is to short. As you say if you do a lot of gaming then it's probably attractive but for general tv viewing then oled is a much better route even at 1080p.

Yes it is only hdmi 1.4, would be pretty nonsensical to stick hdmi 2.2 on a 1080p set. It's great to hear you got a good KS7000 set, I had 2, both were terrible, looks like you won the Samsung lottery and I lost!. I am just comparing my experience, and my opinion is that I get better value for my money (and my usage) out of this OLED, than the Samsung set.

Just looked at the LG OLED W series on Youtube, oh my word - they are summin' else! W stands for wallpaper which gives you idea of what it's like. No word on pricing but I won't be able to afford it, I know that much.
I see that Sony and Panasonic are bringing out there own OLED's too , which is nice - though the Sony set uses an LG panel I think.
