3305933.jpg”This LG 4K OLED is a superb all-rounder.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 Product of the Year award winner.

OLED – the TV gold standard
Highly developed by LG, OLED TV technology remains at the forefront of image quality. Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) TV offers the most advanced picture quality currently available. Unlike LED screens, OLED doesn't require backlighting, so the colour is consistent right across the screen, with greatly enhanced contrast levels.

Alpha 9 processor – a new reference in picture processing
New to this exciting LG TV is the powerful Alpha 9 processor. With increased processing power, Alpha 9 enhances motion handling for smoother images. Object-based contrast is also improved, giving sharper, more detailed images. With Alpha 9 you’ll see images with truer realism than ever.

True Colour Accuracy Pro
For even greater realism, True Colour Accuracy Pro increases the amount of data points for colour. This makes flesh tones more accurate, landscapes more natural and animations more vivid. No matter what the genre, True Colour Accuracy makes it more life-like than ever.

The widest range of HDR support with Active HDR
LG continue their wide range of HDR support with this flexible TV. Advanced HDR by Technicolor offers reference levels of image and colour accuracy. As well as Advanced HDR, this 55" LG TV also offers decoding for HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision. HDR10 is widely used on UHD gaming consoles from Sony and Microsoft. HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma HDR) is a broadcast and user generated standard format that is set to become the standard for transmitting 4K signals.

Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
Dolby Vision optimises the HDR format to give quite simply the sharpest, most accurate images possible. Dolby vision-equipped TVs, like this LG, can decode both generic HDR content and content that's specifically been encoded in Dolby Vision - a leading format in Hollywood and cinemas. Dolby Vision also adjusts the picture to take full advantage of each display's characteristics and presents an optimized picture for each scene in specially mastered content.

High Frame Rate Support via OTT*
High Frame Rate (HFR) support at up to 4K/120fps means the potential for smoother images with incredibly realism. With a variety of films filmed in HFR since the ground-breaking The Hobbit of 2012, this is the future of movie technology. The technology is also available on some TV shows and is especially impressive with sport. *OTT means that HFR is supported Over The Top using apps such as Netflix 4K. It is not available via HDMI inputs on this TV.

Part of the unique ThinQ AI system for effortless control
LG’s unique artificial intelligence system brings together a wide range of products under intuitive control. For your TV this means intelligent voice control and the ability to seamlessly work with third party services from Google and Amazon. The more LG ThinQ AI products you have around the home the more seamless and integrated the control becomes.

webOS Smart system now with Google Assistant
The award-winning LG webOS smart TV system is already one of the most highly-rated in the industry. Powerful but user-friendly, webOS makes Smart TV even smarter. Now featuring Google Assistant, webOS just got even better. Google Assistant is capable of changing the channel and input via voice command. It also integrates with services such as Google Photos and Google Maps to make your TV an even greater source of entertainment.

Freeview Play for catch-up TV
Freeview Play makes catch-up TV easy. Find programmes from BBC iPlayer, the ITV Hub, All4 and Demand 5 sitting alongside over 60TV Channels and up to 15 HD channels. Simply scroll back in your TV guide to watch shows you missed from the last 7 days. Just make sure your TV is connected to the internet and you're good to go.

Unless you're wanting a 9 then buy now!


But its a refurb . I think you need a 5 year warranty at minimum when spending this amount of money on a TV personally.

Thanks @apur32 I've changed 'w/code' to 'with code' in the thread title. We are trying to get away from the abbreviations - they tend to not appear on searches (both here and on Google and other search engines) and not every abbreviation used is immediately clear, especially to a casual user.

Poised to buy it waiting for Black Friday & a 65 incher.

Thank you @andywedge will keep in mind while posting deals.

I found out the hard way Bought a Samsung KS7000 refurbished from RS and the screen went faulty inside the warranty. Then just outside the warranty the screen went again Was a very common problem on that model.
Anyone else worried by the fact that it is only last year's model but already refurbished? Doesn't fill me with confidence but I believe LG are the best OLED panels around. I am hoping to purchase an OLED soon but this does worry me. Grateful for any advice. Thank you

It's unlikely to be the panel itself that's the reason for the refurb (any dead pixels or screen burn would more than likely have to be stated at point of sale?) Its probably something on the motherboard, which is an easy fix by swapping it out.

smtm, you will find that LG are the only panels around. If you buy Panasonic, Sony, Phillps, etc, the panels all come from LG.

I understand your issue with a refurb, but it really matters why it was refurbished. Something like a faulty HDMI socket is likely to be sorted forever whereas other things may reoccur. Of course, you will never know this when you buy.

Maybe talk to RS about supercare. I bought an ex-diplay plasma and I could also purchase 5 years supercare.

Thanks very much indeed for the feedback. Makes sense when you look at it from your point. I feel somewhat reassured but would still prefer to buy new if I can.

Thanks very much indeed. I didn't know you could buy the SuperCare on refurbs so I will definitely bear in mind. Interestingly I am only looking to OLED because my 11 year old Panasonic Plasma is showing pinking and burn in on bottom third of display. Runs warm but a belter of a panel until recently. Probably one of the last that Panny made themselves. I do recall now reading somewhere about LG making panels for others. Thank you.

You will have to contact RS regarding supercare on Refurbs smtm. Obviously do this before you pull the trigger. OLED is the natural successor to Plasma in my opinion. If you turn off all the processing settings, you can get an image which is very Plasma like. It's also handy having the old plasma still working and sitting side by side during your tinkering.

In some cases, an item is declared "refurbished" if they have to replace a scuffed or damaged shipping box.

Amazing deal... Saving up to purchase soon. Just in time for Christmas
Think this has expired. The is no longer a "Buy" option.
Wow! 🔥
Refurb !!
Bought a refurb Samsung KS8000 from them.last August. Within 4 weeks some white dots appeared on the screen.. then by December a grey border appeared around the entire edge of the screen. I videoed the problem here....





They took the TV away for repair and said the cost of the repair was too much and gave me a full refund.

Beware paying big money for a refurb

guys would you rather buy a very high end led tv or a refurbished qled/oled? I'm looking to upgrade from an old 42" bravia and wall mount. apparently display burn is common with those?
Got this tv - it’s great
Any good price for an 43" ?
