Decided to pull the trigger. I believe it's probably as good as you can get in this price range and stocks are running low.
I with lg's 1080 oleds would drop to this

I have just done the same and agreed when I read your post.
Do SD channels look okay?

Is there any motion blur during gaming or fast action programmes?

Thanks
Great tv, only issues after 4 months of owning, doesn't like connecting to Internet through a switch, can see vertical banding with football/cricket/blue skies, if watch in dark because edge lit white titles on black screen lights up half screen turning from black to grey otherwise great tv
Hdr works with Amazon for example, anyone bought an ultra HD blu ray player that can confirm works over hdmi?

​Currently it is only HDR for the in built streaming apps. It is not HDR for Ultra HD Blurays as the HDMI connections are 2.0 not 2.0a. LG haven't announced any planned updates.

​Didn't know that. Although it's a good price, I would still want full HDR compatability.
I went for the new 8000 series for the full HDR. This one was tempting but not being specced to take full advantage of the next 5 years of films I buy on bluray 4k would be silly. Happy to pay £1499 for the 49"
Fantastic TV, I've had it for a few weeks, use it for gaming, watching football, movies and 3D, absolute bargain!!!!

Try using a static ip, and set DNS to 8.8.8.8

I have the 60 inch version been playing gears of war 4 beta and it looks great not blurring and watched footy and no problems really pleased

You can achieve this by going to the TV Menu > Network/Wifi (or Wired Connection) and then going to the advanced settings and select Edit to change the IP, Gateway and DNS values. You should probably look in there to see that the IP settings are automatically detected first, if they're not then you have a network fault somewhere.

I've setup loads of these 55" and 65" models at work for use as display screens in our meeting rooms. Fabulous TV's, picture is brilliant and we've had no problems networking both wired and wirelessly. Don't really get used much for video's normally, but in the interests of testing I've had 4K video streaming from YouTube quite happily and very impressively.

I would also add the interface is miles better than my Sony smart tv I owned before the magic wand is brilliant
Richer Sounds seems to state the TV can handle Ultra HD Blu Ray as their website states the HDMI connections as:3 (HDCP 2.2 - 3)...so is this TV fully HDR capable?

Apparently the 5 year warranty is provided by ukwarranty.com. I asked via the Crampton and Moore live chat. Does anyone have any experience of this warranty care provider and the service care given?

Is there a smaller sized version of this TV with the same features?

I was previously looking at the Sony KD49X8005CBU deal for £499 via a John Lewis price match. Apparently JL are getting more stock in a few days time and the email price match is valid for 28 days. Now I am not so sure which TV would be be a better investment. I'd be hoping to keep the TV for a few years. Well at least 5 years due to the warranty cover.

I'm felling rather bamboozled which TV to go for; or whether any other makes or models are worth considering.
Bought this with a view to replacing it in 3 years for a oled TV when the tech becomes affordable. I really see no point in spending big on a TV at the moment.
Just bought from Richer Sounds today with a price match and 6 year warranty, great TV.
I'm not a hardcore gamer, but is this tv good for gaming?
how to unexpire this thread?
I've spend days researching 55" 4K 3D TVs around the £1,000 mark and the spec / reviews on this model are awesome. I believe it to be the best deal around - so I've just bought one. The deal is definitely still current and TCB worked for me

Vertical Banding problems with sports and fast motion, old spec.
Save a bit more and get a HDR set.

Not certified as it doesn't meet 1000nits of brightness. The new series starting @ £1499 do. I bought the £1499 one.

4k OLEDS are dropping! £2699 at last count. Nearly down to my favored price of £50/m on 3 years credit lol. Give it 6 months!
Seems these are the go to TVs before OLED becomes more affordable.
Bit on this, thanks OP for making me spend money!

This was Twice its current price last year too. UF models are LG's 2015 models and have already been replaced, they are clearing out stocks now.

No 4K is any good for gaming unless you've got something powerfull enough to run games at 4K (basically a super, super high end PC), which rules out all consoles (including the new PS4.5 - which will play back 4K video but won't have the power for 4K games).

Without that you're left with up-scalling which will add loads of input lag. Gaming on a TV? Stick to 1080p.
