Own this and it is brilliant!

Came from a 51" Samsung 3D plasma and the 3D on this LG is so much better, the Amazon video app runs HDR and looks fantastic. Well worth the money if you are looking for an upgrade. Check out the AV forums guide for picture settings as 'out of the box' is dire

Which sammy you had and how do you compare 2d picture quality?
is the 3D feature passive or active?
doggboy10

is the 3D feature passive or active?

This has passive 3D
What's it like with sport? Any banding or dirty screen effect?
This isnt HDR where did you find that info because i cant find it.
Cracking tv bought mine in Richersounds before xmas on a mispriced one off set at £949...
Best purchase in years... No buyers remorse at all
I can confirm set has LG's colour prime which when used states on screen that HDR is present ( only really tested with test downloaded content)
4K picture is superb
1080p is wonderful
Sd is a little lacking
Has Freeview HD and Satellite tuner with very limited epg (but still useful for basic channels including 4K Astra satellite feed)

Bargain at this price
I tried the 3D but wasn't bothered by doing more than testing it



The person in reply #1 owns one and appears to believe that it has HDR...
Going off this post it seems ColourPrime equates to HDR...
Ordered this the other day from RS, but haven't had time to pick it up yet. Do they refund price differences in this kind of situation? Can anyone who owns one comment on gaming as I've read mixed reviews concerning lag and game mode?
pah, why buy this when i saw a boosh one at half the price with twice the pixles (8000K). it had red and blue ones. no greens, but greens are a marketing trick. the human eye can't detect green. that's why it used on snooker tables to not distract the players.

It is HDR, I have it.

the way we know is that before 'HDR' was standardized all companies put their own names on the tech, Samsung has 'Peak Illuminator Ultimate', Sony has ' X-Tended Dynamic Range', Visio has 'Dolby Vision' and LG has....... 'Ultra Luminance'

Please don't throw around comments if you don't know.
Do a google search for this TV model and you will get lots of information from many websites including AV forums, trusted reviews and even some explaining how HDR works like this one digitaltrends.com/hom…ed/

Again, I can confirm it has HDR as I own this TV set and can play HDR content without fault, all settings become locked to the HDR standard and the colour range and brightness is amzaing

I had the PS51D550, the lower end of 3D Plasmas from 4 or 5 years ago. It was a great TV and the black levels were better than this LCD (obviously) but the picture quality on the LG is outstanding.
I haven't really used the inbuilt Freeview or Freesat but can say the picture quality is just alright. With Sky plugged in it is much better, I think it's to do with the way the signal is handled beforehand and how compressed it is when it reaches the TV.
Xbox one is very sharp but has a little more lag than the Plasma, i think it's around the 35ms mark. There is slight DSE on my set when pastel colours are filling the screen, it's not terrible but coming from a Plasma I noticed it, now it's been 4 months of ownership I don't notice it as much.
The colours it can reproduce is brilliant on normal TV let alone when you get some HDR content plumbed into it from Amazon (Man in the High Castle/Bosch/Red Oaks) or locally (test files available online).

If you get one have a look on AV forums for picture setup tips
Just bought it from Richersounds last week, was on sale for 899, bargained for 850 with 6 year gurantee. Amazing telly. Lot of discussion about HDR, people have tested it with Amazon Prime HDR content and the the message on screen shows HDR on. I haven't checked it yet......
Any link for picture setting please....

Many thanks drunken_Prozac (Alcohol and antidepressant !!)
Tempted by this.

Can anybody confirm it will output/pass-through 5.1 from the optical? I need that in order for it to work with my Sonos.
Paid £789 for this a month ago from Rakuten.
(Was on for £829, discount code took it down to £789, also got over 4000 Rakuten points worth £40 and now waiting for csshback claim for another £25 even if that fails I effectively paid less then £750).
Was sold by PRC direct. They took over a week to deliver because they were out of stock which was fine as I wasn't in a rush.

Absolutely brilliant TV was looking to buy when around £1000 and stumbled upon Rakuten deal.

Didn't share deal on here as they're not received very well by many users..

I've never had a problem with them..

Hot anyway at this price with the 5 year guarantee
Singh...u are king if you got it for that price
Got the 49" model from Currys in December for £600 (after cashbacks) and it's great, wouldn't have minded the 55" at this price though.

Bump? Really need to know how it handles football, cricket fast motion scenes before I buy it.

That's why I'm sticking with Plasma for now until Oled catch-up!
Has anyone played an xbox/ps4 on this tv? Any noticeable input lag?

My previous lg tv had around 50ms and I never noticed a thing, need to purchase a TV asap and this is currently top of the list
I think the input lag is bad on these for gaming, around 50/60, god i notice it on my 5 yearold 20ms tv, you would think it would get better with the newer screens, all this fancy processing just adds to it, i think 50/60 is with gaming mode on as well.

​According to reviews it is 32ms on gaming mode and just over 50ms standard. Not as good as Samsung but fine for most games or gamers. You won't get that much better than 32ms on a 4k screen I reckon.

The input lag on this isn't great. Can't remember exact figures, but it's what stopped me buying it a few months back. You need a decent Samsung 4K set if you want sub 30ms.

Edit: 45-55ms according to an owner, looking back on a previous thread on hukd.

Richer sounds price matched & reduced price by a further £10 ... £839 ...
HEAT on size and price reduction [more to come!]

However, this set is the lower end of the UHD scale for colour grading as far as *HDR* specification pass rate
for sets manufactured after Nov 2015..

EG: It has *passed* the needed level to be sold by a manufacturer set by the alliance for UHD-1 [phase1] so
as more sets are released this year and into 2017, the hdr gamma curve availability will increase as more are
passed through the alliance certifications ;-)

Also remember that fast, sporty events, even filmed in raw 4k will struggle with the current batch of hdr sets..
the more going on in the scene you are watching, the more hvs compensation is needed to stop colour bleed
to the human eye.. the luminance range needs extending each ultra update!

In simpler *Curry's / PC World* sales talky talk.. you need a 10bit min hdr tv to see the complete
benefit of uHDR sets.. and even then, motion will be an issue via some sources / apps etc etc..
is there a 65 inch version?
Has terrible blacks due to the crappy IPS panel unfortunately.
Does anyone know if there Is a non-3D version of this TV?

Didnt know any of the above.
Thanks for the information
Had this TV for a month now. Fantastic picture, both on HD and 4K. Very smooth and responsive interface.

Only downside is that I wanted its USB recording to work and it doesn't. For example, Recording HD MOTD results in pixellisation and stuttering. LG support useless. Blamed my signal for being too strong. Funny that the issue never happened in live viewings or now on my BT HD recorder.
I've just bought the 850, what is the difference?
