2015 1st OLED generation set with all the bugs and baggage. -No HDR and poor sound. All the manufacturers have dropped Curved sets (apart from Samsung) and even LG admit they got it wrong with curved.

For this price range, go for a top end LED 2016 set with HDR and Ultra UHD Premium credentials

2016 sets look the biz, but at a considerable premium.....

​Utter rubbish. I paid £1200 for the 930v and I've not seen any LED come close to it's picture quality. I don't even miss the 4K on Netflix because just the HD picture is stunning. Give me OLED any day over LED where it just cannot match the blacks of OLED. Also so many LED screens suffer horibble backlight bleed. Just read reviews of OLED and you'll get the picture.

Nope your wrong, check out the LG 2016 signature range, their built-in sound is full 10-bit HDR dolby and has had musicians and movie bods drooling with envy...

So, the fact you fail to mention the banding issues, poor colour accuracy and motion blur/jagged edges, the god awful upscaling of SD content..... It's ok, naturally you're going to try and justify your poor choice.

What would you recommend for sub-£2000?
Worth waiting or splashing out for 2016 models. I've been waiting for an OLED too. hdtvtest.co.uk/new…htm

£1200 bargain and I have not found one fault with it yet. you talk garbage.
I still can't decide on one of these. It's either this or the Sony 9305 which is getting decent reviews.

Oh and I suggest you read up on HDR..... a tv from 2014 doesn't just magically update to HDR with a firmware upgrade.

​That's right and still knocks the pants off the 2015 plastic cheap build backlight bleeding Samsung LED.
Best thing I ever did was get this prehistoric OLED.
I bought this TV last November. Staggeringly brilliant picture and a bargain at that price. Sound quality is not an issue as I use a sound base, but that is the only minor criticism I can give this excellent TV.

As far as I'm aware you need one with a later ZD build code which is HDR compatible.

It's a bit odd how keen you are to slate these TVs. The latest models of this have HDR support and if you are spending 2k on a TV you may as well get a sound bar.

I have been researching for months and the overwhelming reviews from professionals and consumers have been fantastic about this TV, so I would rather go with the overwhelming opinion of those that actually own it than you.

TVs will be improved every year so of course 2016 models will be better, but if you are worrying about that you will need to buy a new TV every year...the 2014 non 4K model is still holding its price at £1,300 so I certainly wouldn't expect much more movement on this.

I am pretty sure for this price, this is the best TV you can get.
Currys and PC World are also selling the same model for the same price, with the 5 year guarantee.
However, they are also offering the Cash for Goals on top, where you get £10 cashback for every goal scored by your chosen UK or ROI team in the European Championships.
Also 1.5%/1.57% Quidco/Topcashback.

nick, the reason they are holding their price is because no other manufacturer is doing LED at this price and LG actually raised the prices of their older OLEDs (like this one) for that very reason.

Price does not = quality in this case, its simply because have the monopoly of OLED right now.
These are last years models, there is no HDR. Only the 2016 LGs have HDR etc.

I'm slating them because people like you are vomiting misinformation on these 2015 LG OLEDs

As pointed out by a reviewer, if you get the model ending ZD you get HDR.

This TV scored 9 - 9.5 out of 10 on all the review sites I have looked at, please tell me a better TV you can get for this price? The newer models are going to cost you a lot more.

Do you have sky running through it? How do you find it? I'm reading that the compression is exacerbated by up scaling to 4K?
Also long term use of these TVs has yet to be realised and there are reports of colour fading after as little as 3 years. So 5 year warranty is a must!
Good price yes but it would be crazy to buy something now without HDR

​Whatever I watch on this TV through virgin media I'm totally satisfied with. I Had an expensive LED and it was pants against this. I buy a tv for picture quality not sound. Couldn't give a stuff about HDR. Right here right now OLED is the **** and totally satisfied with my purchase.

As mentioned previously, you are wrong. The ZD builds of this tv have HDR. Its the older ZA builds that do not.
ZA has HDR via streaming but not HDMI. ZD is both. The 960 does not have Dolby vision HDR which the 2016 models have. A lot of misinformation in this thread. Those with ZA boards have been getting free upgrades to the ZD board via LG which is commendable.

Loooolll. Samsung owner? Panny vt owner?
Soundbar? I went 7.1 and amp and 500w sub to do the picture justice. This tv is a movie/gaming dream.
I had my heart set on OLED when it first arrived to buy. Later with research and instore test found curved screen rubbish, fine for above 55" models but brain cant accept it. Bought Samsung UE75000, satisfied with it so far but looking forward to hdr+suhd+oled infuture.
