I have the panel number off mine and cross referenced the panel database to get this info. So hopefully stop that debate cropping up on here again
Excellent deal. Highly recommended. Voted hot.
Is this on par with the Samsung Mu7000 ?

No...55MU7000 is a 10 bit VA panel...

I've been comparing this to the mu7000 and it appears that the Samsung wins on everything but sound.

Definitely RGB/4K.
Great TV and excellent price.
I think Richer Sounds offer the same priced TV but with a 6 year warranty?
For people wanting to compare against the MU7000, avoid reading displayspec site as I think some of it's data is incorrect.

Use these reviews;

rtings.com/tv/…500

&

rtings.com/tv/…000

I have the MU7000 and it's a gorgeous TV but I kinda wish I'd gotten the SJ850 as it can be used as 1080p 120hz on PC gaming. Also the input lag is the lowest I've seen, so great for Console FPS Gamers.

If your an average user, both TVs will suit you just fine and both are around the same price now so it would be purely design choice.

I have the 55MU7000, its an amazing TV, the black levels and contrast are much better than The LG's IMHO, yes you do sacrifice some viewing angle with the VA panel, but unless you are way off to the side, its negligible. The only thing you are giving up is support for Dolby Vision. Also, the Samsung can record and playback a different channel if that's a useful feature for you.

Not sure how accurate the comparison is.
The Samsung picture is incorrect (not a biggie) it states Samsung has 3 HDMI ports, but it actually has 4.
IPS plus 8bit panel, seriouly?
WTF is "Super UHD"?

I'm really struggling to keep up with these marketing terms.
I got this tv f last week for £719 from "very" you get 20 percent off if it's a first order. You just have to wait for the generic email for 20 percent off first purchase

I picked the lg over the Samsung mu7000, no regrets. I couldn't ignore the fact that it has dolby vision (for Netflix's hdr output) and harman karden 2.2 sound (.2 being 2subs) and great viewing angles
Great tv suffers from light bleed out of the box, needs calibration then it shines,recommended to go to rtings.com/tv/…ngs had this for 3 months now very happy for the price and same 5 year guarantee

Hi so are the Black's as bad as they say?? I returned the Samsung ue55mu700o due black drop outs. Is the sound good?
Bit of newbie here, so any help/advice would be really useful.
Been reading the forums / expert advice across the board for a few months for a decent value 65 inch 4K TV.
Samsung MU7000 / Sony XE8/9 series come up in the good value range.
I know 10bit panel and edge lit is considered good for viewing
But my usage will be predominantly SKY Q content ( 1TB box) so not Ultra HD content and the occasional online streaming, no gaming , no Blu Ray.

Also most channels, content would be SD/HD channels so probably a TV which can upscale normal transmission to 4K

Is this LG a good buy for above viewing or is there a better one with good value compared to hisense??

Appreciate any advice!
I purchased the LG for £850 at Christmas and am really happy with the picture quality. It was my first slimline flatscreen and the drop off in sound quality was noticeable but against friends sets comparatively good from the TV itself. I did however upgrade with a HEOS sound bar which gives s fantastic setup and blows the socks off anything you could achieve from any tv integrated speaker. Picture quality on SD was noticeably better and the HD really crystal clear. The remote is nicely compact and easy to use, offering functionality which controls your TV box (Virgin in my case) and has direct Amazon and Netflix buttons plus track wheel for quick navigation. I’d recommend!

Hi would you say the blacks are okay,? What's it like for gaming?

Thanks
I have been considering buying the LG 55UJ750V 55" model, is this one better? Have found the 750V on Hughes for about £610 but with the Very 10% new customer discount this one would only be £100 more? Is it worth it? Thanks

Blacks are good, better than my last tv but it took a lot of tweaking and finding a vid on YouTube to get it right but the sound harman/kardon® fantastic at any volume even at 100% this tv is a super uhd (nano cell tech) if I was to compare it to a Samsung it would have to be super uhd tv (Qled) not a standard uhd
