I looked at this yesterday. Surprisingly thick for a new set. Put me off it. Good price though.

Same here. It’s far better than the LG 630 selling for £549. They were side by side and on the same settings

What makes it better than the 630? I was looking at getting the 630 or 635 but not sure whether to wait for more deals leading up to friday!

I'm guessing it was side by side in a shop your talking about! I'd take that with a pinch of salt how it really looks. Set up in your own home with a bit fiddling about they'll look completely different. Shops just take them out the box, stick them on a stand and thats it, they look horrible in shops.
I usually take a USB stick with me which has a few HD pictures and 4k content on to have a look at the quality, staff don't seem to mind.

I couldn't care less how thick it is. The fact hat despite the thickness, it's still an edgelit display kills it for me.

I’ve been looking at this and the 635 but according to the net it appears that the LG’s use IPS panels which have their problems and lack of screen formity, my existing Sony has a VA panel which I chose due to excellent black levels. I’m confused on what 4K set to even look at due to a tight budget and I don’t want to jump from into a fire even though I’m currently not in what you’d call a frying pan.

I am in a similar position to yourself and, despite the fact that my aging 10 yr old Sony is on its last legs and I was intending to buy a good deal TV this week, I am beginning to lean towards trying to hold off for another 6 months.

I think OLED's are beginning to fall faster than people expected and that it, in itself, will help clarify the market for what TV to buy. Retail sales in the UK and US have also plummted so we appear to be heading into a recession which, inevitably, results in retailers cutting the prices of electronic goods considerably.

On a side note, I just bought a roku box and it has improved the image of my TV considerably - presumably a lot of the processing of the image is being done via the box. I was surprised at the improvement.

My Sony W829 is not quite that old, 2 years I think, my Kuro is older but still a cracking picture. I’m thinking I need to stay away from the IPS panels and maybe wait for the Jan sales or when JL start getting rid of this years old tech!

Yep, that would make sense.

The big TV makers have invested heavily in OLED production and we will start to see bigger supply hitting the streets around March I reckon. I can't help but think that we are still being asked to pay premium prices for tech which will definitely be on the way out within 6 months.

My 10 year old Sony has a cracking picture but the transcode board is going on it - that is why I was looking to buy now but, well, the more I think about it the more I am of a mindset to keep it until it dies - which could be today or a year from now - and then buy. I really like the image that several of the LG's produce but reading about their tech I can't help but think that I am being a bit cheated in buying one of their supposed 'not quite 4K' 4K panels. But are the other brands any better? I am not so sure.

Im not sure how this is £100 better than the 635 model at £497?

From what I read, there isn't much difference at all.

I bought one a couple of weeks back. Cracking tv to be fair. Picture quality is great. Running sky hd, Wii u, PS4 or through amazon prime uhd.

Can’t fault it at the moment

It’s £699 now?

Even though it says the res at the bottom it then states RGBW, any idea which is right?

That photo is from these specs

Went with the Samsung 55", 7000 series for £699 at Hughes. 10bit panel.
I like that it comes with a media box that can be changed.
