Looks like a good deal for a LG55"

Don't go crazy if it's not as I'm no tech expert

it's a good low range model. Can accept and process HDR content but as it does not meet UHD Premium certification you won't get the ideal experience.

Samsung 6400 I think is comparable

this might help- UHD vs ULTRA HD

Technically, "Ultra High Definition" is actually a derivation of the 4K digital cinema standard. However while your local multiplex shows images in native 4096 x 2160 4K resolution, the new Ultra HD consumer format has a slightly lower resolution of 3840 X 2160.

​they realised 3d just isn't worthy for another 20 years or so. decent quality picture in 2d comes first

What?!! Stop the press. Shocking!!

Then again don't know anyone who has one and if it's anything like the cinema just a complete waste of time IMO

Can't find and decent 4K UHD 10bit 55" + TVs for under £1K at the moment. Dam Brexit.

WOW didn`t realize that the technology had become that thin, do they use special connectors on these due to the thinness?

I have the LG UH55661V which I bought for £600.
It looks like this is a very similar spec, and in my opinion mine is an excellent TV. If this has web os 3.0 then you will be able to use the LG app to replace the remote by using a smartphone which avoids looking for remote control in the dark! Overall a great TV!

HDR Pro.... Ok...

UHD premium just means 10 bit. for a 10 bit panel you're going to pay lots more.

This is 4k Res (3840 x 2160)

For the price this is hot!

Having bought my similar 50"UH635, I've realised what nonsense this whole 8 vs 10 bit 4K nonsense is! The grand tour in 4K looks stunning as does pretty much everything else I can watch on it so it's hard to see how it can be discernably better IMO. Given 10 bit sets cost hundreds of pounds more, it's madness to keep bleating on about what flavour of 4K youre buying as the image quality for 95% of people will be as good as they can imagine.

Great deal...heat!

I have the Samsung UE55KS7000 - got it when it was £899 (with a discount on top of that).

I really dont think any 4K TV should be allowed to put "HDR" in it's features unless it meets the Ultra HD Premium specifications. Frustrates me. Had several people at work who got 4K "HDR" TVs over Christmas who are underwhelmed with it and question why they bothered.. It makes people think HDR isnt worth the investment, when it really is when you've got a TV and content to show it.

Watched Life of Pie Ulltra HD Bluray on my KS7000 last night, i wouldnt want to watch that film on anything less now.

This isn't a 4k TV. Has rgbw panel, a 3k TV would be more accurate.

Actually, the UHD Premium standard specifies resolution, colour depth, colour gamut, peak brightness and black levels. LG are part of the UHD Alliance, but in 2016, only their OLED screens made the Premium standard.

For me, Avatar and Gravity were two of the best experiences I've ever had at the cinema.

Yea but the main point is 8bit vs 10bit.

For the price this TV is a steal.

Is it true this isn't a true 4k set?

Is it true this isn't a true 4k set?



Depends on who you ask. a 4K TV screen has 3840 x 2160 addressable pixels. On a 'standard' panel, each of these pixels is made up of three dedicated sub-pixels - one each for Red, Green and Blue (RGB).

The LG screen that is the topic of this thread has an RGBW panel; where W stands for White. LG arrange the RGBW sub-pixels in a pattern that means that some sub-pixels are shared between pixels. Sharing sub-pixels allows LG to make a panel with less sub-pixels. A screen with less sub-pixels is cheaper to manufacture, which is one reason why these TVs are cheaper than the 'true' 4K sets.

So, because this RGBW panel has less sub-pixels than an RGB 4K panel, some people claim that it is not a true 4K panel.

On the other hand, the international body that sets the UHD 4K standard has said the RGBW sub-pixel arrangement is fully compliant with the standard - otherwise LG wouldn't be able to put UHD 4K on these TVs.

You can see the pattern of RGBW sub-pixels here: http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/rgbw-201510084189.htm

Note that Samsung used a similar trick to reduce the sub-pixels in some of their 'pentile' AMOLED screens.

i've been waiting 11 years for 10-bit with local dimming. Saw an early prototype made by Brightside who sold the IP to Dolby. The LEDs ran so hot it needed to be water cooled.

​What the...? I'd just written off finding that set in 55" for anything close to reasonable! Bought the 49" for £800 a couple days ago. Still not sure if I'll cancel the order.
Where'd you buy that?

I didn't see this post, but hubby noticed it was reduced on Amazon and we received it last Friday. Seems OK but not as amazingly bright and vivid as I was expecting from a UHD TV, especially eg on Netflix. It suddenly seems like a dark veil has gone over the screen. Really odd. Does anyone have any recommended settings or should I try to speak to LG?

Cold not KS7000.
