LG 55inch 4k TV Richer Sounds instore only with 6yrs guarantee £549 @ Richer Sounds

Found 27th Jun
I was looking for a 49inch 4k tv and planning to buy the Hisense but after reviews decided to opt for another make and came across this at Richer Sounds. This is cheapest I have seen comparing to Currys and Argos but comes with 6yr guarantee as added bonus.

This spec is as follows
LG 55 inch 4K Ultra HD HDR Smart LED TV Freeview HD 615V

A top-brand, HDR 4K TV for less - this LG 55 inch offers a full spec at a bargain price.
4K Ultra HD TV - Ultimate Detail
With 4K UHD screen resolution, this 55 inch LG TV gives a stunning picture quality. Has 3840 * 2160 pixel resolution, 1200 refresh rate
HDR Pro - High Dynamic Range for superb contrast - states HDR10
The best smart interface is better than ever with webOS 3.0
Freeview Play for catch-up TV
New "Magic" tech
Linking in with the new webOS 3.0 system is a range of "Magic" features.
Has 3 Hdmi but only 1 USB? - not sure if this is correct?
See the bigger picture, clearer than ever.
Is this a good TV to buy?

The model states LG 615V

If it's the 615V it has really bad light bleeding. Just had mine refunded after having it 11 month and bought a Sony instead. The smart features completely stopped working even after rebooting it wouldn't work.

Why cant you but 10bit, FALD, HDR10, Dolby vision, 60" TVs for £549.

tech is moving so fast these days be lucky to keep this TV 2 years never mind 6

I read this comment and it conjured up images of throwing it out of a hotel window from several stories up. Although 2 years would be a long time to take to hit the ground if it really were going fast.

Rgbw kills it for me.

can't believe they can get away with calling RGBW TV`s 4K.

​fake 4k ...ffs never heard that one before lmao..

But the specs state HDR 10 bit?. So are some saying both LG and Richer Sounds are lying and making false representation of the HDR on this model?. I might be looking for a new TV soon and don't want to get caught out by false manufacturer and retailer claims.

I've been looking to make an upgrade from my Sony 50W809C to a 4k HDR TV but every time I think I've found a decent TV, it turns out to be ****. Is there even any point upgrading unless it's a £1500-£2k OLED TV?

1,200 elephant refresh rate?

So, if my budget is say £600 limit, is it surely better to ignore the HDR side of things as a pointless feature at that price range and just go the the best reviewed 4k that budget allows?.

As seems everything at this price range is likely only an 8bit HDR panel with more 10bit HDR comparability?.
