I saw this couple of days ago. It seemed to be a good deal so went on to purchase one. I bought it from Birmingham branch with a 6 years warranty on it. Normally they don't give warranty on the clearance items. I bought 55JU7500 couple of months ago in clearance and was able to get 6 years warranty then as well.

I would say this is a very good deal. Not going to go in details how good this is as there are more competent people on internet who have reviewed it.

I just thought this might tickle your fancy! Quidco 4% discount could give you £40 back if you add your card and activate it before purchase.

Heat added for the Oled, it's just a shame it's not 4K.

It says Richer Sounds, however that might have been updated since you asked the question.

Nearly £1000 for a 1080p? Granted it's OLED, but still. Seems a bit like throwing good money after bad! When they're not even new!

Find another 55" oled TV for less than a grand then please?

I have this model, knocks the socks of most 4k Tvs. I demoed about 40 tvs and decided on this as most everything is 720p sky or 1080p,
Black is ink black, colours are stunning.

Too expensive for 1080p. Not worth it.

I'd rather get a non-oled 1080p for a lot cheaper and save up for a oled 4k. That's what I meant by throwing good money after bad. If you want to spend £1000 on an open box of old tech, I'm not gonna stop you.

This has a 41ms input lag. Any (PC) games this cant handle?

1080p oled looks better to me than 4k led.

That's not bad for a TV, especially OLED. It's good enough for gaming, I've not seen an OLED noticeably faster

Completely agree, LG had a really good exhibit at Bluewater not that long ago with a lot of their range on show. With TV's side by side the jump to OLED was far more impressive than the jump to 4k

Where input lag is concerned, we found that after putting it in its Game mode and turning off as much residual picture processing as we could find, the 55EC930V measured a disappointingly high 100ms of lag when fed a progressive signal, but a vastly more useful 33ms when fed an interlaced signal.


How does one feed an interlaced signal ?

In my opinion, at the moment oled is better in terms of contrast and black levels. I have owned a 4K tv and used it for a month. I have seen both standard and 4k content, House of cards and Narcos on a 4K tv. After buying oled, I played 1080P content on it, personally I can't tell the difference between 4k content on 4k tv and 1080p HD content on this oled in terms of quality of the picture except in oled "black is just black". There is halo effect around text in all 4K tvs but not in oled. Standard tv content looks the same on both.

Then you need your eyes eyes tested or you weren't looking at 4k material! 4k detail is outstanding, as close to looking out a window as I've ever seen.. On my set anyway which is only led. 1080 just cannot compare.

Yep, plus you can enjoy 1080p now, it will be a while before Freeview is transmitted in 4k.

Not worth it in this day. Brilliant set but it's 1080p.

A feeble 4x sharper than HD is hardly what anyone could define accurately as a "jump".

Read up on OLED before making silly statements like that. This is the poor performing 1st gen set from LG, even a Tesco LCD Blaupunkt effort would beat this.

​course it can. you know nothing about size of screen or viewing distance that he was using, image quality, contrast, brightness is much more important regardless.

everyone jumping on the 4k wagon, it's not the next big thing, regardless of what content is there, resolution isn't as important for watching TV as it is for gaming.

​more of an evolutionary step then? simple marketing? fools gold?

this is the best to watch 1080p videos at his native resolution.

blacks, colour accuracy and vibrancy all play a part - not point in having a poor 4k TV - so yes 4 OLED is better but costs allot more for little or no decent 4k content. You are falling for the marketing....

How did you get the 6 yr warranty for a clearance item - did u ask or did they offer?

​I asked for six year warranty and they were a bit reluctant but eventually gave it. They tend not to give it. You got to ask for it to get it.

Not true the new 4K 2016 tv's look better!

so unless you sit within 6ft of a 55" 4k screen you won't gain anything over a 1080p resolution assuming perfect vision. oled in my opinion is the better tech to pay for, you'll notice the deeper blacks and better colours no matter your distance. for reference uk.rtings.com/tv/…hip.

I'm talking about viewing under appropriate conditions not sitting too far away or in a bright room, if your going to do that then why waste a grand anyway. I suppose everyone has their own preference as to what looks good but for me clarity (resolution) is what makes it realistic and that's what you get with 4k. The contrast and brightness is improved with oled but not enough to outweigh the clarity of 4k. I suppose actually it depends what kind of things you watch.. My LG won't make cartoons or coronation Street look any better but put on a wildlife documentary or a scenic film in 4k and you'll know what I'm talking about.

Some sources automatically feed interlaced, some home camera recordings and streams etc but you can purchase calibration discs with tools to feed different signals. I.e Spears and Munsil has some good test footage for both 1080p and 1080i.

I haven't seen a poor 4k TV so I don't know about the colour accuracy and vibrancy on them but I can assure you I'm not falling for any marketing, I looked at the picture on a lot of tv's before I chose mine.

Seems I hit a raw nerve, you still trying to sell yours on ebay?

Here is my LG EC930v in my bedroom when I first got it, there are black bars at the top and bottom of this film. The contrast is so good, they are not even visible to my camera....

4K is a pointless fad, it makes no notable difference. OLED has perfect blacks, excellent viewing angles and superb motion clarity.

This TV puts my last gen VT65 Panny Plasma in my living room to shame.... It would walk over virtually any modern TV apart from LGs latest OLED offerings ( OLEDB6V for example, at a cost of around £3000 )

Tell that to my new sammy, amazing picture quality. Makes my 1080p panny plasma look shocking and I never thought I would ever say that.
