not bad as it's been £899 since before xmas

I am dubious though as i think it's a currys exclusive model

10 bit panel or 8+Frc?

Who cares? They're close enough in practice that any differences are lost behind the much bigger differences in HDR performance.

In terms of more important HDR hardware it has good colour space coverage for a 2016 model, but limited local dimming ability. Ten or so full height local dimming zones that the TV doesn't manage to control very well causing noticeable brightness bands even on the low setting.

​I care don't buy it is 8bit wait for few months 10bits models price will drop

Any codes for the LG 49UH850V?

this seems to tick all the boxes for my new TV requirements. kids wanted 3D passive TV, i want 4k.
i currently have a 52" plasma LG smart TV that i live but this does seem like a great upgrade.

Yes its 4K and passive 3D which should be game set and match. However, on the LED's, the 3D filter is too sensitive to vertical angle. In the real world this mean you always get a great 3D picture with no crosstalk on 75% of the screen but suffer awful crosstalk on 25%. You then adjust your viewing position up or down and the same happens but vice versa.

The OLED's on the other hand don't suffer this issue. Its almost like LG have purposely done a bad job to make you pay the extra for the OLED. (Worth it though)

is this model one of the RGBW 'fake 4K sets?

I have this tv bought in October, the 3d is much worse than the LG it replaced and maybe it's just my panel but the screen uniformity is appalling, watching football really causes a dirty screen effect. Yes the colours in dolby vision are great and the uhd is decent but the back light undermines everything!

Buying a TV based on whether it's 8-bit or 10-bit is like buying a car based on whether it has 5 gears or 6.

It's a difference and worth considering between two otherwise very similar models, but generally you'd concentrate on more influential elements like the engine.

And much like a gearbox a lot depends on the implementation, a 10-bit set can have more banding if the equivalent of gear ratios are badly chosen.

No, the UH770, UH850 and UH950 use the standard RGB pixel structure.

I agree, I had the model before this for a week I also suffered from DSE.
