From nature documentaries to sports, you can expect sharp detail on everything you're watching.

Active High Dynamic Range (HDR)


Active HDR gives your pictures deeper contrast and brighter colours for natural and realistic colour reproduction.

You'll notice it in films and TV shows more, with blacks appearing much darker without muddying the screen and making it hard to see.

Why does anyone need a 70" tv?



Because they have a large room? So seated further away which makes the screen look small?
32.5kg, think it would rip my wall down if I tried to hang this?

Is this any good for standard stuff ?
To small 😁

Sounds a reasonable weight for the size of the thing. If you try and attach this to plasterboard between the supports then you probably will see the tv in pieces on the floor. However, a standard piece of plasterboard (2.4m by 1.2m) weighs around 23kg so if it’s tied in to the wooden supports then it’s not as bad as it sounds.

RGBW and can't do HDR properly. So it's a substandard display in comparison to others. You're paying for the panel size of 70". If you haven't seen any other TV's that do HDR properly etc then you probably won't care. Anyway there's no doubt it's cheap for a 70" panel. It depends if you want a massive TV for this price or one that has excellent picture quality but is smaller. You can't have both at this price.

Good price if you want this size, but it's Currys which is a shame.

Just think how many sales they loose out due to their non-existant customer service.

I had a 60” plasma, now that was heavy! Think nearly 40kg, as long as it’s on a outer wall and you’ve put enough bolts in, it’ll be ok. Great price and heat!

Considering my old LG 50" Plasma which I still have in the spare room is 50KG, 32.5 don't sound to bad.
I wonder what freeview would like like on a screen this size

I swear my old Philips 32 inch CRT (top of the range at the time and bloody beautiful) weighed over 70kgs! Certainly felt like it when it fell on me whilst me and my son were trying to SLIDE IT down the stairs. I literally could have been killed!

Edit: 56kgs!

I remember when people said a 42 inch was too big , Now I have a 55in , so I'm guessing 70in will be the norm in a few years . Not sure this would even fit in our bay window ! Can't justify a 5th TV as there are only two of us !
You will need a unit for this as we spoke to someone at currys yesterday. Its not thin as tvs are these days and its last year model.
It looked stunning tho
Fantastic price for this but have recently purchased a 65” LG oled for 3 times the price otherwise this would have been a good alternative
That is very tempting, but my current tv works so I don't really need it, I just want it!

Do you not go to the movies? Have you tried watching a movie on a small screen - not anywhere near as good.

Exactly. How many buy a 32" tv nowadays ?
I used to have a philips 36" crt - 90kg !
You do soon get used to the size of a tv .
Which reminds me, I used to know a girl who's motto was "once you've tried black, you never go back"

Will this do proper HDR? Or is it not good. Thanks

Agreed. I don't think someone who spent "3 times the price" on a TV would ever consider this an alternative ever (just by the price difference alone). They probably just saw them together in a shop and thought they were comparable.
They wouldn't even be comparable side by side lol

Well they can say in the advertising blurb it's HDR10 compatible etc the facts are it's using an RGBW and a 10 bit panel but the panel is 8bit plus Frame Rate Control. What this means is the panel is 8 bit and the FRC is there to approximate the rest of the colours of a true 10 bit panel. So no it's not doing it properly at all, but I haven't seen an LG except their OLED models doing things properly. You're paying for the panel size and not for the quality of the picture with these LG TVs.

You give LG your money and that = customer pwned.

Does the same apply to Samsung big screen televisions? ie, do they use RGBW panels too?

No. LG are the only ones pushing this scam. Samsung have publically derided it more than anyone (in the name of pushing their own lineup, obviously).

Just bought this tv having stepped up from an old 42 inch. Mind blowing picture quality on 4K content, definitely recommend!

I was in the market for a large upgrade on my 50" Panasonic plasma, 65" was the minimum i wanted 70" was preferred. The LG OLED65E7 i jumped at at although it initially cost me 3 times the price £3799 - the price match i recvieved from John lewis and the cashback due from LG meant i got it for £1500 for a 65" LG OLED its a steal. Had JL not price matched I can safely say i would have seriously considered this. 70" TV for £1200,

Looking to buy this TV later today . Not looking for brilliant quality but not wanting to be watching football in lego form ... any help appreciated
