Very good set but I prefer the full HD version LG OLED 55EG910V as 4k sets are rubbish at up scaling SD.
Top find tho, heat from me

This is the quandary I'm in. Looking for a TV, primarily to watch TV on but would also like one to eventually run a PS4 Pro through. So what do I do? Go for a 4k set for gaming, or go for an OLED 1080p for watching SD TV on? Never easy, buying a new telly lol...

I had a look at the HD oled version at curry's and it was beyond stunning. I thought the HD oled was better than the 4k oled. well worth it. I'm rarely blown away by TVs but this was a feast for the eyes

Good price. Hot

All depends on your viewing needs, As majority of UK only still watch the likes of sky hd and sd channels the LG55EG910V would be the better option.
I'm currently still using my Panasonic Plasma but the OLED full hd sets are the closest im going to get to plasma picture quality. I have no interest in 4k at the min until it becomes more main stream. That's not to say there all 4K sets are rubbish tho. The lower end of the market sets I wouldn't touch with a barge pole and think the top end 4k sets are over priced for poor up scaling.
Not sure regarding the PS4 Pro but I would make my decision on what's used more tv or gaming. If your only an occasional gamer maybe full hd might be better.
If there is a Richer Sounds local to you nip in they will show you different sources to help you decide.

Got to agree this set is really really good and worth £1300 no problem

Heat added. I'm trying to hold out for CES 2017 in January to see what's in store next year, but it's getting difficult. Depending on the time of day and how many beers I've had I waiver between: do nothing and wait until Jan news; buy a basic HD set to tide you over for next 2/3 years; and let's buy an OLED now!

Think the price increase is mainly down to a surge in people snapping it up before stock of the set is gone. Checked RS at weekend and it's no longer on there site. Think Curry's had it at around £1300 ish but Curry's is not the best place to be spending £1300 on a set as there customer service it awful and there warranty's are not much better.

been watching this set since it was released at £3000 .

the price has dropped nicely and can be had 12 months intrest free dor same price at very.
i have the panasonic st60 the last plasma they made at the moment and highly rated award winning tv so anything i buy has to be better ,so oled uhd premium is the only way forward.

this set had a major update this week making the picture etc even better ,read up on it .

£1500 il bite

Amazon had it on a lightning deal twice I think for about £1000, Argos have it in stock for collection for £1169 after discount.
Problem is both are 1 year warranty and I have had 3 flat screens develop faults or die after 3 or 4 years.
5 year warranty is needed imho.

see ashmac quote above, might be worth a look if the update has improved sd up scaling ?

The update as far as I was aware was to stop the judder on the 4k players nothing else,surely you're better getting this price matched with John Lewis as they have a far superior returns service

The C6V uses a superior chipset which improves response times and has passive 3D. Unfortunately it's a Curry's exclusive.

Great deal. I personally will hold off until next year when the Xbox One Scorpio launches.

But this TV at that price right now is hot.

I agree. Hoping for a Black Friday deal... might even be tempted at £1600.

Will there ever be oled sets smaller than 55 inch?

Will there ever be oled sets smaller than 55 inch?



​cant see it ...4k should only be viewed over 55" really as you need to be a certain distance from screen anything smaller your wasting your time and money..cant see any manufacturer making small oled

avfc456

Will there ever be oled sets smaller than 55 inch?


Cant see it happening, but theyl be loads of customers who have 42-50" who would like OLED.
OLED/4k does tend to be more suited to the 55"+

Just be aware people, all those who want this to play PS4 Pro or Xbox One S on for gaming: NO HDR IN GAME MODE.

Kind of defeats the purpose a bit don't you think?

This whole 4K UHD stuff needs sorting out and quickly!

NO HDR GAMING LINKY

I don't think it's ever been as low as £1000 on Amazon, even in the lightning deals. Lowest I have seen it is about £1500, which is still too much, even for a high-end OLED set. Once it does break the £1000 mark, then consider me interested!

They've increased the price to 2150 now.

Just be aware that at £1500, you are paying through the nose for a TV that doesn't support HDR Gaming.

I personally think that it's shocking for a TV back in August was £2999 and has dropped by 40% in less than 3 months, still doesn't do the complete job it was supposed to!

I'd be horrified if I bought it.

Eh? This screen definitely supports HDR gaming and produces the best results visually for anything in the £2K bracket. You are correct in that input lag is at 60ms. It's noticeable on fighting games, competitive shooters etc, but really for most games it's absolutely fine - you just get used to it.

Before recent firmware updates, you couldn't run Samsung screens in HDR with game mode enabled and lag was at 120ms - now that's a different kettle of fish entirely. But the only real competition for this from Samsung is the KS9500 which isn't available at anything lower than 65-inches and costs a lot more than this.

Don't shoot the messenger dude. I'm just quoting what THESE GUYS are asking for.

As I play Battlefield 1, COD, Titanfall, Streetfighter as my main source of gaming, 60-70ms is far, far, far too high to even compete. If you play more relaxed games, then I guess it would be fine but as a GAMER, this is not the TV for you. I still think it's really poor though for a TV of this caliber to not support this. This is the LG flagship and it can't do, what I would perceive, as the bare essentials for a modern TV.

I couldn't 'just get used' to compromising when I've outlaid £2000 of my money. Hence why I'm waiting for all this 4k-Faux-K to calm the farm down and get at least a standard settled upon.

Well, give it a bit of time...

But if you're as committed to low latency gameplay as you say you are, you'd probably be best off with a 4K TN display with HDMI 2.0 input. Even the fastest UHD TV is still in 20-23ms range.

By the way, this deal is still active.
