Very good LG OLED TV non-4k with 6 yr waranty. Best price I have seen it for recently. Think the code is only valid to March 20th.

Personally I am hoping it drops to £900 or under though with the recent trend for increased prices for many goods that is looking less and less likely.

Its not 4k so it you pay for expensive 4k quality feeds or are a 4k gamer its not for you..... if on the other hand you appreciate a quality backlight, good colours then its a great TV.

Allot of the new TVs will be highly priced, so does depend how much you want to pay and whether you need 4k or not. Not much HDR material around either again unless you want to extra pay for it.

i just dont buy into cheap old old tech and tbh £1000 is still alot of money for a 1080p set regardless of the fact its oled(1st gen oled too isnt it?)

Tbh for this price I would go LED something like a Samsung KS7000 you get a lot more for your money. The limited brightness on these early OLED screens can be a pain in bright rooms...

​didn't know new ones were coming out. was just about to buy the LG 55uh770v the super uhd set for £692 should I wait then? maybe it will become cheaper or better 4k tv's come down to similar price. Thanks for the advice in advance.

i have that tv and its a great tv but i would seriously wait another 2 weeks for any tv.
the lag using hdr on the LG isnt great and to get the full hdr effect there is too much light bleed in many scenes but using my ps4 pro with hdr turned off is amazing,but it defeats the point of the console and tv doing hdr if the lag is too bad lol.
apart from that with back light turned down to 50 and local dimming off its a cracking set.
i have had it a while though and if i was buying now i would definatly hang on a few more weeks

because there not going to go up in price lol

This is OLED so a much newer technology than most TVs on the market. Just because they're released later doesn't make LCDs with far too many pixels and lots of catchy marketing terms better TVs.

You wouldn't buy one new car over another because it was released this year rather than two years ago.

As a high quality screen for normal TV viewing this is unparalleled at this price. If HDR is important (mainly for gaming right now) then an XD93 might be a better choice but I'd certainly expect most people to prefer this set.

​I've not got hrd source am just thinking to the future for if and when I get something. I have a ps4 but not the pro. I've read about the local dimming issues, would you buy this set or something else if yours packed up tomorrow?

Most people will be interested in OLED rather than LCD so as not to be plagued with light bleed. Sit in a dark room with the two and see the difference even with this 2015 model.

For normal broadcast content all the times I've seen the 910V or other OLEDs of the same generation they've outshone the higher end LCDs next to them.

Sure, the 4K HDR demo reels look great on the LCDs and produce a better overall picture quality, but I wouldn't expect average content to reach that level of bandwidth for fifteen years or more so unless you spend a lot of time watching Blu-ray UHD discs or similar those pictures are meaningless.

I'd much rather have a TV that produces the best picture day in, day out than one that only does so on special occasions.

It has a standard led/lcd back light which is pretty poor when spending over £600; so its poor for watching dark scenes. Do you want to watch the Dark Knight or the Grey Knight?

Very good full hd set, better than most top end 4K LCD. Heat from me

The KS7000 handles dark scenes very well the blacks are black.... I had this OLED and now a KS7000 and would happily choose the KS7000 over this.

Hopefully the price of the newer OLEDS will keep coming down.

Which manufacturers are releasing new TVs in the next few weeks? At the moment I'm looking at a Samsung KS7000, an LG850V and a Philips model. Is it worth waiting to see if they get discounted and what the new models offer?

KS7000 has a known poor backlight. Depends what you want; I had a plasma and can't face going back to a poor backlight.

All of them release new TVs around now although the new models are released at high prices. For example the excellent Sony XE90 that's a KS7000/Q7 competitor is currently £1500 for 49" and £1800 for 55".

There will be some discounts, but I wouldn't expect them to drop to half price or anything like that.

Nothing wrong with mine or anyone else I know that has them. Biggest issue was loose back panels.

^ This.
Was in the same position last week. Spent an hour with these two sets. Both have their positives and negatives. Went with the KS7000 and am very happy indeed.

They use old backlight technology compared to OLEDs; did you check the backlight when displaying a pure dark screen? this shows up the issues with LCD / LED non FALD screens very well. However if you don't watch many films then it may not bother you as much. Each to their own.

I'd say the 2015's are something like 3rd gen OLED. Something like the EC930 is second gen and before that, there is another TV which was crazy £ when it came out.
