I had the old uh850 model, was an awesome TV till kids broke it, this should be even better. 1500 nits of brightness, local dimming, launched at £1800. Only negatives were blooming which have been addressed in firmware updates, and lack of hdr10+ which other than Samsung, no one really gives a toss about. Comparable to the Q9 QLED sets, they give better blacks, these have much better viewing angles, and as the TV is going in the corner of living room it's perfect.

Has the blooming issue definitely been fixed though?

Not fixed, just improved. Despite 100 zones it doesn't have the best backlight dimming. Rtings seem to have an updated review showing (to my eyes) blooming to be acceptable

Now I'm looking at the "Black Uniformity" bit. This is where I assume the "blooming" is based? To me that looks okay.

How's HDR on these? See they have Dolby Vision. I do really like webOS.

I have this TV.

The HDR is very good and bright.

Still messing with PQ settings, but I'm really happy with mine, and the blooming is pretty low level.

I had a look instore at a 8500 (so expected it to be worse) but it was so bad in person i was really put off. Blooming is expected with any direct lit but the alogirthm they used is really sub par with the likes of sony or samsung.

Not sure how up to date currys keep the display tvs (i assume they never update them).

Not voted either way as im on the fence. If it wasnt for the backlight issues i would grab this in a hearbeat. WebOS is nice and the rose gold trim round the edge is a nice design touch.

Would you go for this …Would you go for this reliantdirect.co.uk/HOME/Product-Detail/Samsung-QE55Q6FNATXXU-55-6-Series-Flat-QLED-TV_QE55Q6FNATXXU.htm or the LG


This has got wider viewing angles and support for Dolby Vision. Local dimming. WebOS.

Samsung (iirc) will have the Apple App so you can purchase 4K movies off iTunes.

Personally I’d go with the LG for wider angles, vision and webOS. But it’s down to personal preference. I’ve seen the 9500 in store and does loom bright. Maybe worth checking both out if you can?

All depends if you want FALD. It does help with HDR on the TV. Especially with Dolby Vision. Guess it's a personal preference to what you want in a TV.

The Q9 series is the equivalent Samsung line (despite competing with OLED on price). Q9 as you should expect for the price has better blacks and goes brighter so HDR will be superior in a bright room. But doesn't have Dolby vision which makes it outdated already, they're pushing the betamax style hdr10+ format. If you have an Xbox one get the LG over the samsung, otherwise Dolby vision feature is wasted.
You can get the 55" LG OLED for £1050 in Richer Sounds - a different league for not much more money plus a 6 year warranty. This SK9500P is not worth £749 by comparison. Just my opinion but I bought a high-end HDR LED TV and the backlit picture was very patchy; I changed it for OLED and the difference is literally incredible with amazing picture quality.

Parents have that set after my recommendation, it's fantastic once setup properly.

The 9500 has better colour range and can go much brighter which as mentioned above makes it great for HDR viewing. Also the 49" 8100 set doesn't have a 120hz panel, not a problem in most cases, might make a difference if you want to use it for gaming or watching the footy.
9500 has better built in speakers, again not much of advantage if you have a sound system already.

If you just intend on watching Sky or blu rays still, get the 8100, if you have a DV compatible player, Netflix subscription and a decent 4k library then the 9500 is worth a look (or wait for a £900 OLED b8 deal!)

I agree if just watching mainly for films. If you have kids like me who might end up spending a day on the Xbox the thought of an OLED set still worries me.
how big is the difference between this and oled? worth the extra ~150? i want to mount one on my wall. complete tv tech newbie here. f
Does anyone know what kind of warranty is offered with Selfridges? Couldn't see anything on their web page. Also anyone have any insight on which TV would be better to get, the Ops LG SK9500 or Panasonic TX55FX750B for about the same price with 5 year warranty? I would go Oled but the TV will mainly be used by the kids (Us adults occasionally), so wouldn't trust them with static screens and burn in. Tia.

Depends on what you're after. The LG has Dolby Vision good for 4K Netflix and movies off iTunes. The Panasonic supports HDR10+. Not many content providers are supporting HDR10+ at the moment, I think Amazon Prime Video are showing some content in this HDR Format.

I'd imagine it only has 1 year from Selfridge's.

Both TVs have wide viewing angles, being IPS panels. The Panasonic doesn't have full local dimming. Just edge dimming, compared to LG'S full local dimming. So you'll get better HDR performance from the LG.

Now I would love an OLED. But that risk of burn-in for me is too much. It may be a small risk of it happening. Personally I can't trust other members of the house not to look after it.

Deffo the reason I’m still unsure about OLED. Plus I will have the odd binge session on Fifa or such like with static HUDs. Most say don’t worry and their sets are fine but my luck would be burn in on the first week

Yes it is, but it all depends if people want to have to baby sit their TVs. If people watch a lot of news with tickers on the bottom they may not find an OLED ideal incase there's that risk of burn in.

I'm not saying that... Personally (as previously mentioned) I'd love an OLED. But as I have kids and a Mrs who won't look after the TV (I'm sure there could be other households who share this situation) an OLED may not be the ideal choice especially as warranty doesn't cover burn in.

Also how many people will make use of OLEDs potential? We can argue that there's not enough 4K content out there for some people to spend so much on a tv.
I got the 49" version and believe you get a better screen with the 55" version.
The things that I don't like about the TV is the Dark corners which can be very distracting when watching a full screen. The Blooming to me is pretty bad. It has improved with firmware but it's still very distracting more over my old edge lit TV.

The Good Things:
The Sound is really good for built in speakers and don't worry about a sound bar.
2018 model of LG has very good input Lag. The Linus review someone posted above is the 2016-2017 model.
In a bright room this is TV really good and the darks are fine. The Blooming is only a problem in a dark room.
Viewing angles are great on the IPS screen.

However if I was honest I would now look at the 2019 TV's and forget about getting the 2018 models
would this tv be good for average household watching films, sport and casual xbox 1 use? If not what would be better around the £500-£750 mark? 50-55in size.

It will be wall mounted as well if makes difference

thanks
