Found 23rd Oct 2017
looking for a 4k smart tv to go with my Sky Q box. this seems to fit the brief in terms of size and quality.

Does anyone have either and any feedback? I understand the LG isnt trully 4k? The samsung is but a little smaller.

Thanks

What do you mean by not truly 4K? They are both 4K. Sure I saw the MU6100 cheap on clearance at Currys, can't remember if it was 50 or 55 tho.

I would go for the Hisense H55N5500 just over £450

What they don't mention is that reduced colour resolution isn't very noticeable. Almost every DVD and blu-ray disc you've ever seen uses 4:2:0 colour compression - which means it has just 1/4 of the full colour resolution.

Ditto for resolution, 4K pixels are beyond the limit of visibility for a 55" TV at a typical viewing distance, the lack of detail simply isn't noticeable in the real world.

The main real world issue with them is that colours can look a bit washed out in bright scenes due to the dilution by the white light - slightly pale skin tones are sometimes mentioned. On the other hand, many of it's competitors have equally off colours for other reasons.


The UJ63 specifically also has an unusually high amount of image retention. It's more of an issue for gaming than TV use though.


There were some good deals on the Sony XE70 a week or two ago which would probably be my choice in 55".
