I only got this TV yesterday so I'm still playing around with it & discovering it's features.
What can I say? It's a £699 TV for around £400!!
Picture quality is excellent once you edit the settings yourself. It comes from the factory set to Eco mode so everything was a bit dull.
I've set mine to Vivid and taken a little brightness out but you'll find your own taste.
The sound is surprisingly good and I might not bother getting a soundbar (my old one is a soundbase and a little too tall to sit under this TV). You certainly won't need a cheap one. I can only see a high end one making a difference unless you insist on surround sound.
Amazon make a big deal about Alexa being built in. Honestly in this application she's useless!!
Apple HomeKit, however, works much better. Currently streaming Apple Music through Airdrop as it wasn't supported through Alexa.
Dr Venkman was right. Don't cross the streams!!
This really is a fantastic TV for the price-point. This is about as high-quality as you can get before you start having to look at OLED panels, which usually cost 4x as much as this TV does, not to mention that not everyone wants/needs a 60+" TV in their bedroom or living room.
43" with 4K, smart TV functionality, a decent amount of rear ports (HDMI 1.9(possibly 2.0), Optical, USB) and a decent aesthetic, I really cannot find fault with this TV at all, especially for the price I paid for it (around £400).
All of the other TVs inside our house are LG but the picture quality on this model of TV was gererally very poor with poor definition so it went back. - Good riddence.
The room for this TV only has an aerial point, therefore, it needed a TV with a good tuner and it may have been a tuner issue or a generally defective TV issue but either way the picture quality was poor with this TV and it was excellent with the Sony TV that we bought instead of it.
Since both of these TVs used the same TV aerial point the poor picture qualty on this LG TV was obviously due to this LG TV.
Is early days but so far suitably impressed.
I'd made do with a 13 year old 40" 1080p Samsung LCD TV for a long time, had wanted a new TV and decided like most people I wanted a decent 50 to 55" 4K TV but didn't want to spend silly money on one (I set a budget of £500 max).
After alot of indecision of whether to go for this or the Samsung RU7400 I bit the bullet and went for this and so far very happy that I did.
I'm no AV expert but to me the screen looks great, I know there is alot of shade thrown towards IPS panels but I dont personally see what all the fuss is about. Looks perfectly good and bonus is the viewing angles are great.
WebOS is excellent, the magic remote isn't just a gimmick and impressed with all the ThinQ AI and Google Assistant support not that I really use it.
The thing is a tiny bit on the chunky side (as most backlit LEDs are) but is a very good looking set and looks far more expensive than its sub £500 price. Sound is OK but I use a Samsung soundbar with it (which works perfectly over HDMI ARC) so not something that bothers me greatly anyway.
Time will tell but my suspicion is that at this end of the market LG offers better value for money than Samsung....Samsung really trading in on their stronger brand image but I really dont think they necessarily make a better TV anymore.
One disappointment is that within days of buying it, Amazon dropped £20 off the price with it yet to be delivered....would have been nice if they'd invoice for the new price but hey ho that's business!
Arrived promptly, initially thought it'd be a budget 4K SMART TV however coming from LG you get one of the best on the market for a very affordable price. Some corrections from the listing, you get the Magic remote and 4x HDMI ports with the 2019 model.
Initial setup is very easy, took about five minutes, plugged into router with ethernet for optimal internet speeds, all apps you could ever want are there on the store, rendered my firestick completely useless. Has a bunch of apps that can be used to cast to the TV from your phone too.
Picture quality is excellent, the TV defaults to eco mode so you have to go through ever input and adjust the picture settings but once this is sorted the quality is fantastic. Good noise reduction, great blacks, a Netflix premium subscription is definitely worth it, shows like Blue Planet look phenomenal in 4K.
Overall the TV is amazing quality for the price, customer service is always fantastic from Amazon, also comes with a years guarantee from the manufacturer. Highly recommended.
I'm not writing about the TV's various things, there are plenty of reviews (picture good, sound good, etc.). Instead, even if niche, I'm just focusing on this TV's failure to stream music, wired, from a Windows 10 laptop. (Perhaps I'm only one of a minority, but still a big number, who prefer all-wired). Out of the box, I could stream video files to the TV from my laptop via ethernet Home Network (which is great), but nothing, it seems, nothing at all, can get the TV to play the music files sent to it from a PC! Even though the video files it does play, came from the same PC! This is unacceptable and my one-star rating reflects that. Not being able to stream music, wired, to a Smart TV is a bad, basic fault and I will probably send the TV back for it.
I am sick of this buggy TV, I've spent many hours and my efforts have been frustrated in trying to stream PC music to the TV since it arrived a week ago. Streaming music and/or video from a PC to a Smart TV should not be a big ask. What happens when I try, is that it spends up to 4 MINUTES trying read the music sent to it, 4 MINUTES trying and failing, over and over, to read the PC's 'send' command. And from there things just get worse! When it finally does start to play, guaranteed it will only play the first track of the tracks sent, and then at the end of that one track, it always somehow automatically puts Windows Media Player into 'pause' mode! So, great, hey? I can only ever play ONE music track, and even that, after a wait of 4 minutes! It's the TV that is at fault because my PC happily streamed music and video to another TV for 10 years before this.
If a TV receives and plays video from a PC, then of course, equally, it should be able to do the same with music, provided the PC sharing permissions are the same for both, which they are, and it does play my music because it plays one track before it stops. Which proves my music on my PC IS shared and can be read.
And in the 4 minutes it takes before it plays just ONE music track, how annoying it is that every 20 seconds there's a fast repeating cycle of 3 things, first, the TV's 'music player' appears (wanting to play) and disappears, and then 2 successive failure messages appear, (1) "The network is not connected. Please check the connection state" and, (2) "This function is not available now". And these 3 things just repeat themselves up to 20 times before it finally plays just ONE music track.
On a different matter, something much more general, is that you get NO user manual. Which is fine, hey, as you're told it's online (it isn't, there's just a tiny amount of basic stuff) and you're told it's on the TV (it isn't, some information is, but nowhere close to a manual). You're up the creek without a paddle, with no comprehensive instructions like a user manual where you can find and seek what you need. Most pertinent though, is there is not a single picture or diagram of the connections panel at the back of the TV. That is nowhere to be found. Not on paperwork with the TV, not online, and not on the TV's 'Help' screen. So, complex connection options with boxes of whatever kind must be made trying to turn the TV in situ to see what is there, and where it is, while you wield a torch held in your mouth because you need both hands to strain to see and read the inputs/outputs from an acute angle while trying not to topple the TV, and all this because LG don't care to provide you with a picture key of the connections panel. You only get mere text on the TV's screen itself, telling you what you can connect, but forget being told WHERE the inputs/outputs are, or what they look like. This is consumer unfriendly, mind boggling nonsense.
Finally, the TV's music player is hugely underwhelming, not to say, inadequate because 'Music Player' is too grand a name for it, It's a small square bottom-left of your screen. It's about 3" in diameter and it 'times out' and disappears before one track has played. Then it's replaced by an even smaller, even more bland circle (just a quaver note icon on it) without information at all, not track name or length - nothing! To add insult to injury, when the TV's 'music player' disappears, a prompt informs you if you want to bring it back, 'press volume on the remote' (why, when I don't WANT to alter the volume?) and even when you do this, oh yes the music player comes back, but it will always disappear again in less than a minute! VERY, VERY POOR INDEED.
