Not bad, but you can buy a 4k capable TV for this sort of money.
60” rare size
RGBW pixel structure so not even real 4K. Should be illegal to sell this junk but LG still get away with it.

Can you give a few examples please ?


Hisense do a decent 65" around the £750 mark.

I think you might be right about the RGBW pixel structure,so if anyone can give more conformation about that besides jams80 and myself ,it would be appreciated.All this talk of rgb v rgbw is quite a hot topic of debate,from the RGB,s point of view this tv is really a 3K tv,regardless of the pixel count of 3840x2160,because you lose roughly 25% because of the white replacement sub pixel arrangement,which when factored in gives a true RGB count of 2880x2160. also a reduction in brightness,darker and distorted color reproduction of original source material when viewed, will occur.In RGBw,s point of view they say you will get a softer pastel colour reproduction which is very pleasant for mood lighting,which i,mm assuming refers to when viewing material in a darker environment.apparently its a bit more friendly on the eyes to because the white sub pixels softens all the rgb color palette range.i not going to get into a debate about this,i,mm just putting it out there from what i have managed to source.if anyone has more knowledge that they could add to this,then all the better for our members.myself personally i,ll stick to RGB.

Can you guys talk in English please
Given the lack of 4k content available for free, 1080p full HD suits fine, and unless you are close to the TV then can't see 4k anyway

could you tell us how you see the difference? When u watvhing tv from some distance? Are u able to see the difference even just on the static photo on display? Dont think so... Same thing doing Samsung with his Qled, which pretend to be a OLED display... QLED - OLED smart trick from them side, but u can easy show real black picture and the fake one, when we talking about RGBW and 4k its impossible. You wonna add something?

If you look at the side by side of RGBW vs proper 4K, the difference is VERY obvious. Even if you don't compare, why would you pay for something you're not getting?? Where is the sense in that? RGBW is NOT true 4K, this is a fact. Just KNOWING you've been lied to is surely bad enough? Or are you OK with that, while others profit from those lies?

Regardless, whether you can see the difference or not is SO not the point. If you have no other TV as a reference, you probably won't notice, but it's the PRINCIPLE. By buying it, you're giving LG permission to keep making them and selling on a lie.

We're living in the Wild West when it comes to TV specifications. Manufacturers are allowed to say virtually whatever they want regards 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. So unless you hold stock in LG, you really have no reason to defend this. It impacts YOU negatively, whether you realise it or not.

As to Samsung QLED, it's not pretending to be OLED if you read the spec. If you do that, it's obvious it isn't. LG aren't calling this a 3K TV, they're calling it 4K, when it isn't. This isn't the same thing as Samsung are not blatantly lying. Not that I'm condoning Samsung... it's cheeky and potentially a bit misleading, but it's not the equivalent of the fraud LG are pulling.

Yes, instead of just adding a full individual subpixel for RGB and then a W subpixel as well, LG have simply replaced every fourth subpixel of the normal RGB count with a white one. The result is a major reduction in color saturation, a reduction in black level depth and, even more crucially a reduction in perceived resolution. They can really only get away with calling them 4K because their total number of pixels and subpixels remains the same, but by cutting out that crucial fourth subpixel for either R, G or B and replacing it with a white one, they have made the screens weaken in how they deliver the fine multicolored details of image resolution. Side by side comparison with a regular 4K set highlights the inferiority very clearly.

I've not read anything about it being pleasant for mood lighting, and if you have issues with your eyes and need the image softened, well, that sounds like the person has vision problems of some sort. I would suspect anyone saying anything positive about RGBW is simply trying to convince themselves after being conned in to buying one. RGBW is just flat out inferior, and the sad thing is most people have no idea they've been had.
I have the 75" version of this tv......rgbw.....what a crock of s##t....the picture looks superb in hd and uhd, I'm sick of hearing this week after week from people who Don't have this tv .

1 year manufacturers but you can extended for 3 years for a reasonable £57.51 and for 5 years for a less reasonable £139.56. That also includes accidental damage cover.
Guys;
How do you know if your set is a real 4k or not? I find the information is not also available. I have 55UF860V in my guest room. The picture seem good to me but I will really like to know if it is a true 4k or not?

Here it is on LG's website

Thank you. You have put my mind at rest
However, I can't see anything that gave it away on that site. Looking at the spec it seem almost identical to the one the guys are saying is not a true 4K (LG 60UJ750V) on this thread

If you scroll down the specs page for this tv displayspecifications.com/en/…b18 you will see RGBW structure 2880 RGB + 960 W listed.

For your tv this is not shown.

I am assuming this means your's is a proper 4K RGB panel however you can always contact LG tech support to be sure.

Plus a review expertreviews.co.uk/tvs…50v. No mention of RGBW on the 60 inch.

I think you are safe.
