What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely TV but not good for Smart Apps! Had this TV for over a year now for gaming and have to say the graphics are amazing when hooked up to my PS4. Also with HD tv, the quality is brilliant, especially for the price. Two main downsides: - sound quality isn't great, very tinny, which is why I bought a surround system. - I wouldn't recommend using the built in smart apps, especially Netflix. I'm a bit of a TV geek and when streaming things in 4K through the built in apps, you see a little drop in frame rate and I end up watching 1080p Netflix through my PS4 instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST PURCHASE I'VE EVER MADE!! Was looking at a few TV's at the time but i went with my instinct and got an LG and i am so glad i bought this beautiful bit of kit! The quality is superb! The picture is so clear and the colours are so vibrant. The sound quality is amazing considering its coming from a pair of TV speakers. There is nice bass and the sound is crisp clear, it almost sounds like you have a home theatre system hooked up to it like i usually do. The ultra 4k is fab and it looks although you can put your hand straight through the screen. This TV has never let me down and never failed to put a smile on my face. Take my advice and sack a samsung and go for an LG, You won't be disappointed.
