Nice selective quoting. Let me try!

"At a time when ultra high-definition is just taking off, this sort of product does nothing to regain the trust of sceptical consumers who have been burnt by passing fads, planned obsolescence and limited upgrade path. To market an RGBW LED television as 4K Ultra HD is short-sighted, running counter to the industry’s shift in emphasis from more pixels to better pixels in the next phase of UHD development. An RGBW LED LCD TV may be cheaper, but you’ll be paying the ultimate price in the form of compromised picture quality."

But whatever you need to tell yourself to justify buying a 2.8K TV for 4K TV prices.

Is that a cross between a warranty and a guarantee?

Ten bit ? Flux capacitor ? Local dimming, do the kessel run in 10 secs ?

ooh very tempting, just a pity about that stand - good find
So it's not a full 10 bit?
Bought the 55" model from Very a couple of months back, didn't even take it out of the box, the depth of this thing is awful about 4-5cm.

Popped in to a Currys a few days later and the one in the had by far the worst picture quality of the ones in that row, all showing the same 4k demo. The image was grey and washed out, probably due to the RGBW 8 bit panel.

Sorry, cold from me...

FRC is a type of dithering to approximate the extra colors.

They split the signal in Currys, probably last on the line to get the signal after it's been split so much for the other TVs to get the same picture. When they're sat side by side these look great for the price.

lets be honest, how many of you are going to be sat less than 8’ from your 65” TV and actually be able to tell the difference between 1080 and 4K never mind 4K and RGBW 4K?
Costco returns are awesome so if you’re sat on the fence and worrying about what people on here say, just buy it and see for yourself in your own room and make your own mind up

Second in line actually, truth is that it's just a poor, non-UHD Certified TV.

It'll also have the Shop Front picture mode enabled, and that makes most stuff look rubbish.

Even if they split the signal it will still be done over HDMI and hence digital and so should not be degraded like when they used to split the aerial (or scart) signals.

Umm, but it's a digital signal....

It either works or it doesn't.
Ah, another 8bit 3k panel here.....

Got to say, I was in a local well known tv selling shop a few weeks ago, and even with my average at best eyesight, you could clearly see on the LG's it wasnt as sharp as the identical feed on the true 4k tv's at either side, and yes, I could actually see the pixels on it.....

But, to be honest, at a smaller size, say 50" or under, I dont think youd really notice this was a 3k RGBW panel, however, at THIS size.......no thanks.

If you're standing up in front of any of these tvs, yes, all of them are going to look worse anyway because you are too close and yes, you'd probably tell a diference. But who buys a 65" TV to sit a foot in front of it?
Thinking about it, but looks a bit fat for a flat screen...wondering if it will look okay wall mounted.

An HDMI splitter is just a digital repeater, it recieve the signal as binary and then repeats it in all outputs. There should be no loss in quality and as the other poster said, digital degredation is really obvious.

You get cheap passive splitters but they are obvious when they aren't working as you get digital breakup and handshake issues.

Right! This is an on-line only deal. I know this because I've just fagged to the Stretford Costco, and came away empty handed. I still think it's a good deal, but it is deffo not available to pick up in store. I did try to buy another tv but one can't pay with a credit card in-store. Hope this is useful.

But do you often watch 3D? I had a 3D Samsung for about 4 years and maybe watched 1 or 2 films on it when I first got it. Now Sky no longer do a 3D channel there isn't a huge amount of content out there. I think TVs are just a bit too small to make it seem immersive enough in 3D IMO, even at this size. Just got a 4K tv so at least I can enjoy this fad before it moves on to the next big thing lol.
I have one and wish never bought it. The tv guide is so slow. The channel arrangement is a pain as when update comes out you have to sit and 're order channels..
Picture is good however.

I bought this same TV in 43" from Currys because at the time I just wanted something cheap and cheerful. I used it for about a week and I couldn't cope with the awful picture quality, washed out colours, grey blacks and poor viewing angle. I returned it and got an equivalent Samsung which is massively better. I wouldn't recommended any LG TV other than OLED personally. If you want a cheap bedroom TV get a HiSense or something.

Must be a different TV, the IPS viewing angles alone are better than Samsung's VA screens by far and there are certainly no washed out colours here. The Samsung has better blacks, but tends to reduce colour vibrancy as a result, though both TVs can look stunning if you take the time to set them up properly.

I sense something else going on here.

I don't have the model number to hand, but it was bought in early 2017 and was a budget model. Could have been an earlier model I have no idea tbh but from my personal experience the Samsung was superior it pretty much every aspect but admittedly it was slightly more expensive. My mum also bought an more expensive mid-range LG (again no idea what the model was) around the same time and it suffered with all the same issues. Again, this is just my anecdotal experience, yours may vary.

It will have been the 2016 models if it was before April last year. Most of the difference in picture will be due to the VA vs IPS screen - some people prefer one over the other but the majority of lower end TVs still use IPS. VA screens have better blacks and work better in a darker room while IPS screens have higher brightness levels up so are better for brightly lit environments. What confuses me is that you mention viewing angles, which is where the IPS screen really comes into its own.


But, as you say, it's down to personal preference, which is why I wouldn't use that to warn anyone off a TV. The only advice I'd give is to go into a store and look at them all side by side and decide for yourself based on that (and affordability). Technical faults are another matter, though, and there are a few TVs out there I wouldn't touch due to the amount of faults being recorded.
