Picture quality very good even when used as a pc monitor.
Tip toeing into the world of 4k with some skepticism, i’m delightfully surprised with the resulting image resolution / frame rate and the positive effect upscaling has on my ps4 gaming. Software is simple to install and configure, gui highly accessible and easy to navigate, built-in sound is likely to appease even the sweatiest of thrill seekers, controller works fine, size is just dandy for a large room so stop wasting your time reading this and piss off please :). Oh yeah, first tv showed up with a large arse crack down the side. Broke my heart, dimwits, then they replaced it a day later, cool cats.
Really love this tv and the picture quality is truly amazing and sound. Id definitely recomend lg tv 10/10.
As above, blacks can sometimes appear slightly grey when not in 10 bit hdr. Everything else looks perfect and is an amazing tv for the money. I doubt i would buy anything else for the next few yearsyou can even control your console on youtube and the dashboard with the tv remote via hdmiit will also switch on and off the ps4 or xbox if you turn the tv on or off first or vice versa. Another good thing is you can just insert a usb stick into the rear of the tv and start recording your tv programs.
This is a good quality mid price range 4k hd television which has some smart and advanced features but does not cost as much as some higher end tv’s such as lg oled tv selection. The design and construction of this television is good and durable. The television looks smart and stylish but it is not the slimmest available but does still have a compact and user friendly design. The picture and sound quality of this television is very sharp, smooth and clear and the image reproduction on high octane movies and content is very good. The picture and sound quality is not the best available but for the price range it is very good. This television has a sound sync option for wireless speaker connectivity with compatible soundbars and speakers as well as wired options. You can also do bluetooth audio playback and usb playback and recording. This lg tv has webos smart tv features which can be used with apps such as bbc iplayer, itv hub, netflix and more for quick access to catch up tv, online content and more. This feature works well but could do with having faster command response times. The smart tv feature with thinq ai tv works well but to get the most out the functions available from this tv you will need to purchase the lg magic remote control (sold separately).
Picture quality is very good on this tv. Looks really good for gaming (used with an xbox one s). Only thing to look out for is that the hdmi ports are not set up for hdr out of the box, this has to be enabled manually. You can see how to do this via youtube. Sound is decent, you won’t need a sound bar unless you’re really fussy. The only downfall is the terrible placing and flimsyness of the feet. They’re so bad that i bought a wall mount. When using the feet, the tv appears to lean forward and seems very unstable. They would also require a very wide stand. Thankfully the tv is very easy to wall mount and arguably looks better.
- This is a good quality mid price range 4K HDR television which.
- Great TV if you plan to wall mount
- Good cheap 4K HDR10 TV with 11ms for gaming!
My son bought this set after a bit of research for his university accommodation. He tried it out at home first. I was so impressed i bought one for myself. The sound is excellent i now listen to the local radio via the set. The picture quality is first class. My blu-ray dvd player pics were upgraded to an excellent level. The blacks are well black and not the ‘dark green of my previous set. The set does everything for you.
Picture quality and size is perfect, bright colours and very vibrant and the blacks are dark and inky as should be. The colours aren’t as sharp as an oled tv which is to be expected but this tv does what it needs to and more, and i use this for 4k gaming, the tv can also upscale any game to 4k if it doesn’t support it and the result is fantastic. This tv is everything you need for entertainment, it has all major entertainment apps like spotify, netflix & youtube. It also has a bluetooth feature to play audio from your mobile. It has an app store to download apps onto the tv and it contains 3 hdmi slots to add additional entertainment devices like consoles. I would highly recommend this product if you have a sdr tv that only goes up to 1080p as this is a truly amazing screen that i have loved since it arrived.
This tv does exactly hat it says in the adverts, and good value for money.
I was impressed with the overall weight being lighter than the smaller lg tv it replaced. The one downside is if you are using the supplied feet be careful they are a wee bit flimsy but they do the job just make sure you screw them in tightly before standing the unit up . The picture quality for me is superb, the sound is fine for us as we have it in a smallish room and it is perfectly adequate with good enough bass and treble. Others may wish to purchase sound boxes if you are using it in a large room or simply want the best quality that is possible. The set comes with the colour default set to eco (whatever that is) but i ran through the options and settled for the eco. Some of the options are quite garish but choices should suit everyone. Unfortunately i am not up to scratch on technical issues but suffice to say that the model for us, is perfect and hopefully like its smaller predecessor it will last the course. Our previous 30 inch set is still working as well as the day we bought it and now belongs to someone else who is perfectly happy with it. Lg make good tvs and i would say that this is as good as it gets for the price range. A good choice if you fancy one.
Best tv ever for the price i had it at. The quality of the picture i see is amazing and the sound.

Like everything about this tv especially as it connects to my google home device and can be controlled by voice commands.
This is my first 4k tv which i have purchased a chromecast ultra for, to replace my old 1080p tv and standard chromecast. I’ve added a few 4k movies to my plex library, including gravity and the martian. I’ve got to say the picture quality is stunning, almost distracting. I keep finding myself looking at all the little details in the picture rather than what is happening. Having said that, it has taken me two days to work out why there’s a horrible motion blur. The problem is why lg’s trumotion technology. I strongly recommend going into picture settings and turning this feature off asap. You’ll need to do it for each input. I’m also having some difficulty connecting it to both google home and amazon alexa. At first i thought this was google’s fault but now we have an alexa in the house too i’m starting to think it’s lg’s issue.
Two problems so far: (1) there are two rca phono audio outputs but they don’t appear to be connected to anything so can’t connect to my hi-fi without an optical converter; (2) i also bought a 1tb external usb 3 disc, intending to use the record/scheduler instead of my old non-hd recorder. However, one is not allowed to record one channel and view another. This makes the record function pretty useless. Just what were the designers thinking?.They make the assumption that all programmes are indefinitely available on catch-up. I do wish i had been better informed by amazon.
So i purchased this tv as i don’t have a tv license and just want to watch netflix and amazon video. Once you setup the tv with your account details it works perfect. Don’t let entering details put you off, you can plug a keyboard into the usb socket and use that. Also there are additional apps that you can install and the winner for me was plex that i then installed onto my htpc downstairs and can now also stream all of my content to this tv. Other really useful features are connecting bluetooth headphones to the tv so you can listen to the audio in better quality than the tv speakers which to be fair aren’t that bad. You can connect your phone using the remote app in the google store which is free and enables to link your phone to broadcast media from it. The lg magic remote (sold separately for around £35) adds more functionality such as voice commands etc. With all this stuff to play with i haven’t really had time to test the hdr and 4k functionality that netflix provides, but from what i have seen it is superb.
It’s hard to not be impressed by this tv based on what i upgraded from, but i must say the picture quality is fantastic. It’s great to be able to click a netflix or prime video button on the remote without having to scroll through a load of apps. The only downside i can find is the tv guide loads slowly, but hey you can’t have it all. Would certainly recommend for the price and quality.
Good job, was able to reduce number of set-top boxes as this has freesat as well as freeview.

Great tv with built in wifi and apps,now tv, netflix and amazon all work great with this tv.
I ordered this tv because of the name, spec and fantastic price but i had a lot of drama getting it right. First tv had a small cluster of dead pixels visible in the middle of the screen. Unit was replaced with no trouble. Second unit turned up with the screen completely destroyed. Third time lucky unit arrived today in perfect working order, however it is very clearly not brand new. Scratches over the rear casing shows its been used before. Box was in poor condition and the packaging in the box upside down. I’m so fed up with broken units turning up that i feel i need to accept it. Now however i need to pay for 2 units to be posted back which they say they will refund. Great tv but i’m left feeling disappointed.
We are over the moon with this purchase.
The picture on the screen is excelent. I have an up scaling dvd player to get by old films to 1080p, and this combined with this tv really brings the best out of them. You almost get a 3d effect because of the depth of clarity on the screen.
So firstly, i’m 21 and i’m well into tech. I’m very capable of navigating any interface and generally get along well with any bit of technology. And let me tell you, i found this tv to be extremely aggravating to use. The setup wasn’t complicated or anything, it was just extremely slow. This is 2019 now lg, i should be able to double press a letter and expect two letters to be registered. For example, if i were to use the on screen keyboard to write the word ‘letter’ it would just process ‘leter’ because it couldn’t keep up with a double press of the letter ‘t’. You almost have to wait a moment after pressing anything so that the tv can react. This became even more frustrating with the backspace/delete key. If i wanted to delete my password for example, i would generally just spam the delete button or hold it down, and expect it to be deleted. This tv can’t process that, you hold down the delete button and it deletes one character, no matter how long you hold it for. You can spam that backspace 1000 times but it’ll still only process one click every second or so. And it may be fine if you’re a bit slower with typing on screen or something, but for me, it was so frustrating. Any tv should definitely be able to keep up with me if a 20 year old nokia can. And then, aside from the incredibly slow lg operating system and general usage, my tv came with backlight bleed, only ever so slightly – i’ll admit.
Great quality budget tv for the price paid. However this price was clearly reflected in the handling and care taken from whoever supplied it. Box came damaged, tv however seems fine for now, luckily, the massive hole in the box was at the back of the tv not front which probably saved it. Inside the box itself the screws to attach the legs were missing so i had to get some of those myself. Not much care was taken when putting items such as the remote/cables into the box. Just thrown into a bag and sealed all together. Overall in terms of the tv i would highly recommend it, looks great on my ps4 pro and has low input lag. Maybe double check elsewhere as the risk of it coming smashed like many others in this review seems high.

Came with freesat and free view connection. You can chose either as the live tv source. Wifi or ethernet connection both work perfectly.
I already have a lg 55′ 4k 2017 model and am familiar with the product. This model is exeptional value bought through amazon. It takes a bit of time to set up to get the best from it but it won’t disapoint. Lg have terrible manuals that you can download if you want. But nothing beats spending a bit learning the setup. One example is each setting tv,usb and hdmi has it’s individual settings. So if you set brightness,sharpness. Hdr etc on your tv that suits what you want in picture quality, you have to setup again for say 4k bluray player on hdmi 1. Once this is done you don’t have to do it again.
For a smart tv this tv is dumb. Picture quality is great, however i was disappointed by the feautres and user guide, the user guide is not user friendly imo, lots of clicking different options to find the information you need. I tried connecting the tv to alexa and google assistant, neither worked. I purchased this tv for it’s ability to record, it does record but you have to watch the programe you are recording?.I had to attached my old youview box to record and watch other tv chanels. More problems with the tv, the channels keep dissapearing. I have returned the tv to amazon after contacting amazon help and lg help twice.
