What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely TV easy TVs Im really happy have this TV. very good picture quality
Date published: 2018-09-08
Rated 1 out of 5 by from TV screen failed with green lines on screen I was happy with the TV, it's features and use. then a Green line appeared on one side of the screen after 9 months. The Screen was replaced by LG but they offered no extended warranty which left me very disappointed and I keep expecting it to fail again. I will never buy LG again. Quality is very poor and while the repair was done successfully no extended warranty given the problem with the screen is disgracefully.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great picture & sound but far from perfect If you can afford to get an OLED. If you want the same features for half the price (£729 when purchased) and a few drawbacks go for this. At first the image is striking and the sound is very good for internal speakers (still won't compete with a soundbar). Colours are great, image is crisp. If you're into gaming as well this TV handles my PS4 PRO very well. This TV could definitely be hooked up to a computer and perform better than most if not all the competition. However it is an IPS panel so while the viewing angles are great it does have blacklight bleed issues which are noticeable on dark scenes. Also the local dimming can seem very obvious it's not transparent enough. If you can see past these flaws in picture quality you have an amazing TV with all the features you'd expect buying in 2018. HDR, Magic remote, Great software. For the money saved I can forgive these, most won't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best TV for Modern Living This TV has everything you need. If you live in an area with poor antenna reception, but have a fast, stable internet connection, this is the TV for you. All the Catch-Up channels, Netflix, NowTV, Amazon Prime included. Easy to set up once you've got used to the wicked magic remote. Picked this up when the 2018 models arrived and got a very good price, primarily for gaming (Xbox One X images looks excellent) Reading reviews, it may not technically be the 'best' out there, but for me, this is the Best All Rounder and value for money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good TV The TV has some light bloom in HDR due to the way in which the LCD zones are lit. This is very apparent in dark scenes. Otherwise it is a good image and an improvement over my previous TV.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as advertised Good TV but not premium(as the price is). After some calibration the image is ok, nothing special. The panel has uniformity problems, light shades on black screen (left side) and color uniformity problems (on a completly white screen we have shades of green on the middle, pink shades on the left bottom, yellow shades on the right bottom). The upscalling is average for 1080p and bad for SD content. 4k content is fine, good details. Sound is good. Overall, the only good things over my old 42LB650V is dimension, sound ant magic remote. Image quality and panel uniformity is way better on the 42LB650V. I`m kind of dissapointed. Tv is assembled in Poland, if that matters...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleek design, crisp image, but fragile screen Loved this TV, until it was destroyed by my son. It only took a single light blow from a 17 months old toddler to crack the screen. There's no bezel around the front glass. The edge is completely exposed, which makes is extremely fragile. Don't buy this if you have small children.
