Update: 23rd Nov - Price reduced by a further £100 to £1199

A great price for a 70 inch set!

Yes! It's an RGBW set!

No - it's not an OLED set - yes you can get an OLED 55 incher for £1499

No - I haven't bought this, nor its sister 75 inch as I went for the Samsung 75MU7000 for £1999.

But it is a good deal!

This method converts some of the RGB sub-pixels to white (W) light, reducing the number of the pixels that can actually produce colors by 25 percent. This equates to a lower quality, less detailed picture on the screen".A poo TV.

LG denies this. Critics have also said that under some conditions, RGBW images produce lower color volume, particularly in reds, that can appear to lose saturation with higher brightness compared to pixels with full RGB sub-pixels.

Hi - got it from this deal: hotukdeals.com/dea…796

Thanks!

What does an RGBW set mean. I'm guessing it's a bad thing but in what way ? Any help ? I've been looking to buy the 55inch of this model

ORLY, I simply typed RGBW LG into Google and read the articles, so I am probably as well informed as you.

"In very basic terms, LG is playing an unfair marketing and display quality game with the consumers who are thinking of buying these TVs or have bought them already." 4k.com

There is some conjecture about whether they technically can achieve 4K resolution or whether the way they go about trying to do it is stretching the definition of 4K a bit.

Is it only LG that use RGBW panels?
Do Samsung use them too?

Facts:

It's not a 4K TV.

RGBW will make a noticable difference on a 70 inch screen.

It's a lot of TV for the money.

its slightly confusing as you can get leds that change colour and are know as rgbw ..

what they have done with the red,blue and green dots, is to alternatively take either the red or green dots away and replace it with a white dot. which is a big issue, if it was proper 4 dots (r,g,b and w) it would be ultra fab but nope its cack

the patten would look like this

rgb|wgb|rgb|rgw|rgb

so you will get more issues with type of set if you look for it .. and once you can see issues with it you will pick up on it time after time, and paying £1299 - i'd want a set that isn't like that

If I m paying £1299.00 for a television, then I want one where I can't see any issues

Also LG usually employ 8bit + FRC to get a 10 bit display colour representation, so HDR purists will say this TV can't display HDR properly either. The real reason this TV is £1300 is because of the size and not because it's got an excellent display, it hasn't, it's just a larger version of the stuff they sell for £500+ I would buy a TV for picture quality first and then by size, it depends what your budget is and your requirements. It won't be a terrible picture but other TV's will kill it for picture quality.

I like the air mouse and the operating system on LG TV's. I even managed to get Reddit football streams up on the inbuilt Internet browser and it worked until the TV ran out of memory lmao.

It's a 70" display for £1200 - there will be compromises. We have a 55" version in the playroom, and whilst the picture is no where near the quality of the OLED in the main room, sharpness in 4k images isn't noticeably different. We don't look at test patterns though, and neither is it 70" like this one.

It’s not a Samsung.

It's not really conjecture, UHD is defined as 3840x2160 the RGBW panels only pass this resolution standard when displaying black and white test patterns. In reality they are 2.8K or 2880x1620. Will this have an affect on the enjoyment the average consumer will get from typical viewing? Probably not, but if you're buying a set specifically for it's resolution, for gaming, PC use and calibrated movie viewing, then you may see issues.

Saying that, the LGs are fantastic televisions to use, they have a very straight-forward operating systems that are fast to respond.

The information you quoted goes against what you are trying to prove apart from a comment by LG the makers of this tv, which is hardly unbiased. So before you say someone doesn't know what they are talking about maybe read what you are quoting.

its 4k in terms of pixel count if you count the pixels regardless of the contents. But will it display 4k content the same as a normal rgb 4k tv: no.

Regarding Hdr 10, you can get decent with 8bit+frc if the colour space and nits are there (1k plus). a pure 10bit display is better as theres no dithering/flickering on some colours.
