Enjoy a huge range of entertainment in spectacular Ultra HD with the LG 55UH661V TV.

Soak up a stunning 3850 x 2160 resolution that gives you a viewing experience so lifelike that you'll feel like you're right there at the heart of the action, whether it's a rom-com, your favourite soap, the big match or a Hollywood blockbuster!

LG have taken this even further using HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology that extends the range of colours for enhanced realism, delivering brighter whites, darker blacks and stunning levels of contrast.

The clever 4K Upscaler feature also converts lower resolution entertainment for added detail, so your Blu-ray movies and other HD content will look near 4K quality.

As well as being a looker, it's also Smart with easy-to-use internet features. Use that deluxe 55 inch screen to watch YouTube videos or keep up with all your social networking via Facebook and Twitter through the browser feature. You can also watch TV shows via catch-up services such as the BBC iPlayer and Demand 5.

Thanks to its simple user experience and set up, you can switch between live TV, apps and your external devices using the Launcher bar and Live Menu.

There's access to NOW TV, where you can enjoy a selection of films, including Sky Movies titles. You can also watch both Full HD and 4K Content through the likes of Netflix & Amazon.

This is a very good deal for a very good tv. £100 more in costco, and another £100 more elsewhere. Good spot

Great find - just got Richersounds to price match to get their 6 year warranty

Been trying to get any real user reviews of this UH661V model... I have read that it needs setting up as out th box it's not set right and colours, etc are way off. Also saw it in RS next to a Samsung and it wasn't as bright as the Sammy. Any thoughts or anyone own one here?

Have 55'' Worth of heat my friend. oO

Ditto, would love some thoughts on this. Very tempted to order. Is it good for Xbone gaming?

How's the input lag for gaming on this set?

Another piece of RGBW nonsense from LG. Has no right to be called 4K. Only buy if you advocate and are happy to support their dishonesty and fraudulent claims.

Here's a link to explain what RGBW means for non-experts such as myself! news.samsung.com/glo…-tv

Just reserved a 43" version of this from my local JL (43UH661V) for £399.99, which is also around £100 less than everywhere else.

I thought it was only the low end LG TVs which use the rgbw arrangement. Are you sure this set is one of them?

Definitely rgbw http://www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/cebd4ef
Can you really tell though when watching?

It's not really the point if you can tell when watching. No, if you have no other TV as a reference you won't notice, but it's the principle. By buying these TV's, you are giving LG permission to keep making them and essentially lying about the specs. RGBW is NOT true 4K, but essentially we're living in the wild west when it comes to TV specifications. Manufacturers are pretty much allowed to say whatever they want reference 4K and HDR, despite a TV not being either in respect to achieving the required standard to display it. As long as people remain ignorant and keep buying them (ESPECIALLY after they are told) then nothing is going to change. On one hand it's selfish, but on the other it isn't because most people are buying an inferior product and don't even know it. That's the sad part. And for those that do know, even if you say you don't care, you are further contributing to the problem as it is undeniably having an overall negative effect on the industry and how TV's are sold to the consumer.

Thanks for this. I'm not in the market for a 4k TV just yet but when I am, hopefully next year, I'll be instatnly dismissing anything with RGBW.

Agreed get a quality Hisense set!

FYI, the LH 50/58UH635 is one of the few LG sets to use a VA panel, so that is worth considering. Only the LG IPS panels will be RGBW.

Interesting.
RGBW vs RGB.
It looks like RGBW is effectively a 3k TV.

BTW, if you like good quality blacks, then try and stick with VA panels. I have only used plasma TVs, so blacks (and motion handling) are very important to me.

Personally, I am waiting for OLED TVs to get a little cheaper, before I replace my plasma TV.
LCD tech is inherently a poor technology when it comes to image quality (assuming image quality is important to you).

I've just bought this Tv same model but the 49" from Very for £480 in the Black Friday deal got delivered Wednesday, was easy to take out the box and install the stand which is curved fits on my stand just fine.
Set up was easy few selection screens and setting up the wifi etc.

Really like the sound and main smart page were you can pick what u want to watch now tv amazon etc.

I don't have a aerial input only standard sky but the the HD pictures look really good, it's says it's 4K but as I don't have anything to test that I don't know need Sky Q for that ? I did read you get it with some 55" tv's I think 6-12 months sky q included ?

Otherwise good picture easy remote

Faux K, no thanks...

What is the difference between this TV and LG 55UH770?

Is LG 55UH770 worth the extra £250 in John Lewis?

Have 55'' Worth of heat my friend. oO


are you from the elephant family?

oh for 4k's sake don't do it

Invest in a 'SUHD' (Super Ultra High Definition) that's 10 bit.

Investing in anything just 'UHD' - 8 bit or below is the equivalent of getting a 'HD ready'/720p screen 'last generation'.
I.e SUHD is kind of the equivalent of 1080p for 4k.
