What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Failure to record... Every attempt too record a programme on Free View fails. Or at best it may record 15 mins of a 60 minute programme. Formatted Seagate HD hard drive to try and rectify ( and therefore deleting all recordings ) more than once but get no joy...overall picture quality is very good on Sky....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely one to consider I bought this in March after several weeks of research. I purchased the LG 65 inch PLA version which came with the a7 chip. The same model with the a9 version was over a thousand quid more, so it really made my choice quite easy in the end. The only gripe I have is that you really need a floor mounted subwoofer to get the best out of games, Dolby, and for the real movie theatre effect. I will give you an update once I had it a little longer. Looking forward to the next formulae one, and UFC to check its quality with fast-moving images, but so far, not too bad at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Picture We've had our TV for a week now and what an improvement on our old set, the picture is fantastic as is the sound (I haven't connected our soundbar) its like night and day. The connections and set up are a dawdle everything is conveniently positioned and Netflix was up and running after a minute or so. I've forced myself not to alter any settings yet but they are there if needed the picture and sound are fine as they are. The actual set is very light and really very thin the stand supports it well and suits the TV quite well. The physical on/off button is positioned at the back left hand corner and once pressed it has 4 options it rocks top bottom left right rock to the top to switch off quite neat really. The magic remote is novel with the on screen pointer and is very easy to use with all the functions needed and buttons laid out well. Overall we are really happy with our TV and should have changed sets earlier LG certainly have a winner here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a very good TV For Blue-ray discs and 4k videos very crisp picture, very black screen giving immediate effect compared to conventional LCD TVs, the HD terrestrial programmes picture quality is poor. I am not sure whether it is due to the terrestrial signal in my area. I notice some performance problem during very fast moving objects. but its very minor fault. FB browsing does not come with clear pictures as it does with youtube. reasonably good sound system. I tend to use a soundbar with wifi. I would have appreciated if it has come with few more USB ports.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!!! Sound: Excellent, Clear, Multiple options provides latest tech for cinematic audio (ATMOS) Picture: This TV is amazing. You can see a crystal clear image in any viewing angle. The colours are vibrant and you feel drawn into the screen by the realism in 4k. You cannot describe how good this TV is until you watch a 4k film on it. Ease of setup: Easy once you make sure you have compatible HDMI cables ). Remote easy to use and menus and AI easy to follow. Features: So many features you can modify everything to your viewing preference at any stage very quick and easy. Picture screen saver: This feature is amazing and if you wall mount your TV you get a visual digital picture that looks really smart when not watching satellite box etc when its not receiving an input feed. Price: At £1200 it sounds mid range. Reality is its top apex TV and worth every penny OLED: Worth the cost do not buy anything till you see this technology. Wipes the floor with QLED (samsung) tech.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so smart, rather dumb! I bought this tv a month or so ago and I am not impressed! I would not recommend this tv. It defaults to terrestial tv(which I do not have) on switch on, you cannot change the default input,you could on my 10yr old "non smart" Panasonic that this replaced. The picture quality is not much better than my old tv,this new one pixelates on dark area of picture
