Not sure why this hasn't been posted yet, but been looking around today and this looks like an excellent deal, which I nabbed. I can't find anything that beats it.

Although the model isn't specified, I believe it's this one: 60UH650V

At 60" 4K isn't really pointless. I know there's a lot of hype, and it depends on viewing distance, but at this size it should be pretty good and with the HDR.

My neighbour Nelly, has this TV. We call her "4K Nell"

This is ultra HD which isn't as good as super HD, clear as mud from lg marketing.

It's probably an rgbw panel so isn't really "proper" 4k

If I'm wrong then this is a bargain, depends how picky you are though so could still be seen as a bargain if you'd never notice this

Is this likely to be the same (I.e. not a great 4k panel)? Got it for 399 earlier as part of prime day but now worried it won't be very good?

​yeah that looks like the same type of panel, might just be film buffs that would notice so try out first to see what your think of it?

This puts me off these panels though as it's a pretty damning verdict of the technology used in them.

"We’re confused by the purpose of an RGBW LED LCD TV. Yes, it can resolve 3840 pixels horizontally and 2160 pixels vertically (though not both at the same time), but that’s beside the point. The diluting effect of the additional white subpixel damages colour fidelity irreparably: by trying to shoehorn RGB video signals into an RGBW matrix, colour information is lost, and users will never be able to enjoy movies in the manner intended by the director"

Was this price the other day aswell, it would be good to hear from the people who bought them on the quality.

Are we certain on the model yet? Not so concerned about the RGBW. See this as the death nell for my Sky Sat package as it has Now TV built in along with Amazon, Netflix and all the terrestial Catchup.

LG 4k is pretty good. I am pleased with mine. I would be interested in this one but I'm saving up for OLED version

Are there brands that don't use these types of panels? For example is it better to look it Samsung, Sony etc? Or is it simply that all entry level 4k TV's do this?

I was so tempted by this but held off by the lack of model number. A skeptic would say it was left off on purpose
The comment about RGBW may have saved me from a BIG mistake, thanks so much!

This is a pretty good deal. Personally I'm holding off til a 55" oled is available for around this price cos I miss the inky blacks of plasma & have two couches at right angles to the screen so viewing angle is compromised by any led set.

For a lot of people this may hit the right buttons for their needs at a great price though. For that, have some heat.

​I've only read that these 2016 lg budget panels are using them but other manufacturers could be. I only researched the lg panels because of the prime deal as was interested in this myself. The other factor is Amazon only listed these models early this month at the pretend "rrp", dropped it a few days later and then again for prime day. It seemed deceptive to me...

Original Poster

The other model isn't the same. Look at the stands. I was aware of the rgbw post, but still decided to go with it, as there's always going to be some reason not to buy a TV, and I don't want to spend £1,500 (and we don't know it's definitely rgbw)+. 60" should give the wow factor, and I reckon the picture quality should be really good (I hope). The WebOS 3.0 looks to work well too.

The marketing of these TVs is terrible though across the board. They don't make it very clear at all.

​I'm the same and have the last plasma penny made the st60 the black levels and motion are second to none so I can't go to any lcd screen 4k or not would need a back step .got my eye on the 4k oled lg for £1799 but just seen the new 2016 lg 4k oled at £2799

hopefully the first 4k oled will drop around £1000 by xmas fingers crossed as unsure I can justify the near 3k for TV

You're pointless.



​lol for sure . guess they used this comment when 1080p came out

Just been reading this about the 2016 line up of LG TVs

flatpanelshd.com/art…php?subaction=showfull&id=1459247590

"Another thing that you have to be aware of when browsing LG’s LCDs is that an increasing share of the LCDs, basically all the non-“Super UHD” models, come with what LG calls M+ panels. These are RGBW LCD panels where one white subpixel is shared between each cluster of RGB pixels (unlike on LG’s OLEDs where no subpixels are shared). The jury is still out on these panels but initial testing shows that part of the 4K resolution is sacrificed to reduce power consumption. We have indicated which LCD TVs use M+ panels for each model in the overview."


UH65

UH65 is another 6 series TV. It is more or less technical identical to UH66 but has a different design and base.

43” LG 43UH650V
49” LG 49UH650V
55” LG 55UH650V
60” LG 60UH650V

IPS LCD (M+ panel)
4K resolution
HDR processing
Ultra Luminance (not in 43” and 49”)
110% Rec.709 color gamut
100 Hz panel
webOS 3.0
USB recording (only in Europe)
HEVC
VP9
20W speakers
Wireless Sound Sync
WiFi (ac standard)

​4k and ultra hd are the same

Ultra HD Premium = 4k oled sets with hdr .ie your £1700 sets and upwards

​Yes but it's a way to tell which panels are rgbw from lg as most of their UHD TV's in 2016 are, according to a website I read so don't take it as gospel, as you shouldn't from some guy on a forum who just used Google to look into a telly

Technically not. 4K is the projection standard and has a slightly higher resolution than UHD.

Do you guys think that LG55UH615V has tje same problem as the 60inch above?

My apologies. I misread your comment so I've deleted my previous post.

Interesting info though guys. When I get the TV, I'll post back to let you know what I think, as I'm sure others will find this post in the future.

If the picture quality is crap, it'll be going back!

At the moment though I'm quite confident the quality will be fine, as from the hdtvtest results they summarise that the resolution looked the same as the rgb panel, but to their eyes the colours were not as accurate.

Ordered 10 for eBay, thanks

Yes, of course I saw those pictures, along with the text of:

"To be fair, the slight loss in resolution detail on the RGBW display wasn’t really visible in most real-world content except for fine text not looking pin-sharp from a 4K PC."

Yeah I read it but as philljp says it might not be noticeable with day to day viewing, if using it as a PC monitor then yes it will be horrible. Missed the deal now but interested in philljp's opinion as I may get one if they go on offer again, I don't expect it to stay at £1300 for long

Just confirmed the model number with Amazon 60UH650V. Put in my cancellation, waiting on confirmation.

Thanks for adding this, but why'd you cancel though? We knew it was that model number anyway.

Has anyone received it yet? Mine still not dispatched. Been searching for reviews on this model but no user reviews.

Have you tried searching under the American model number UH6550. I bought the 55 in the deal and theres loads of reviews on the American sites.

Yeah thanks I have just done that. Reviews are average so I guess I'll have to wait for it to be delivered on Monday. I hope it's up to my expectations otherwise it'll be going back

Mines been dispatched today, due for Monday.
