It has an 8 bit panel and is RGBW also last years model. The 58UH635V is a much better buy at around £650 as it has a MVA panel so decent blacks and is a proper 4k tv

HDR10 is a content format and while it'll accept that it doesn't have anything in the way of extra display hardware for HDR. You need to spend a lot more if you want a TV with an actual increase in dynamic range.

To be honest, you are only going to notice that if you have a component signal without chrome subsampling. Most entertainment devices supply a signal with 4:2:0 chrome subsampling, and then the RGBW display does not make any significant difference.

It also does not have a DisplayPort input, which is an indication that it is not meant to be used with a PC.

Id say stay away from any low end LG tv like this as the lip sink problem is horrific on them, from personal experience

You know your stuff. More people need to be aware of this. Keep spreading the word. There is a specific 4K logo that are on true 4K screens. Is it the gold one?

Sadly even the £1000+ 2017 screens are rgbw, only a couple of models are safe.

It will, you just won't see the higher contrast and more realistic lighting of the HDR content. Depending on how the TV adapts the HDR signal to it's capabilities it may be a small improvement over non-HDR or it may be a combination of dynamic contrast and vivid mode. Fortunately TVs that do the latter generally have an option to turn it off if you're not feeling psychedelic.

This is a relatively cheap, large TV that avoids (most of) the downsides of budget sets. Don't treat it as anything more than that and ignore all the marketing buzzwords. I certainly wouldn't replace a perfectly good TV of any age with this unless you just want something bigger.

I disagree, it's just one trade-off among many in a lower mid range TV like this. It's not even one that's of particularly large impact so I don't know why people are singling it out.

HDMI 2.0 though? Still, buyers should somehow penalise manufactures for basically lying through their teeth.
Not that Samsung and the like don't do it (QLED, a nice play on words with OLED, and their tvs are not even QLED yet, they just use this as a marketing scheme)

Or just stay away from LG all together and let them know RGBW is not acceptable
I do find the TV reviews funny, I bought one of these a few months ago for our family room and I also bought a Sony 65" which was twice the price. Although the picture on the Sony is marginally better (marginally), the software on the LG is much better and much more responsive. So much so that I'm still complaining to Sony and PCWorld about how crap the Sony product is. Basically, unless you spend all your time analysing the picture quality rather than watching the content, this is a perfectly good TV. Plus it's got built in Netflix, NowTV and Amazon Prime

Yeah, I've got a 49 inch 4K LG and a 60 inch HD Sony. The Sony is so unbelievably slow that I thought something was wrong with it. Even the lag on getting up the input list is bad. Love my LG, RGBW and all. I can look at technical explanations of AV Forums of the evils of RGBW all day long and nod along with how terrible it is but it doesn't change the fact that UHD BD (via an XBox 1 S), 4K Netflix and 4K Amazon Video looks great on the set
I'll never buy an LG tv again. Got a 55 inch in 2015 from John Lewis and it developed a line through it within months. LG tried to pass it off as dirty screen effect by looking at a picture you have to send them. John Lewis could do nothing as the first year is LG warranty. After a year I hot to trade it in for the 58 inch panasonic which is a bit bulky but premium hdr 4k and all the bells and whistles. I'd go samsung before LG but last year's models all seem to be lame for premium hdr. Unless you plan on spending big bucks.
Could we expire please - we are no longer able to get this product in.

Many thanks!

You can call in 4K if you like, but the TV won't display true 4k resolution, still if you're happy with the picture that's what counts.
