  1. Arrived with a cracked screen. Unable to use and see the normal quality of LG tv. Very disappointing

  2. Can’t comment on the smart features , picture quality , remote control as tv was delivered very badly damaged so i went else where for another …

  3. It was smashed when I received it so I returned it and went to Argos and got the same telly at the same price! Brilliant telly!

  4. I bought this for the sole purpose of using it as a second monitor for my MacBook Pro, to use at work. My MacBook Pro is a mid-2014, Retina, 13-inch.When I hook this up (either with HDMI or using a Thunderbolt/mini display-port to DisplayPort cable), I get 4k at 30hz.Before I bought it, I tried an HD monitor (also 24″) – so running at 1080P. That monitor was good enough when I watched a movie on it – NETFLIX looked just fine. However, when I used it for it’s real purpose, namely for work purposes, I was not happy with the clarity of fonts and text. Any browser based reading, PDF reading, WORD, OUTLOOK or anything else, was OK but not crisp and a real night and day difference from the brilliant MBP retina display. With the 1080P screen, I found myself preferring to use the retina display for everything which defeated the purpose of having an additional screen.I took the plunge on this monitor and it did not require any setting up before it was immediately impressive. It is so crisp, so sharp, so easy to read, and it is every bit a good match for the MBP retina display. On the displays preferences screen (on the Mac), if you switch from ‘1080P’ to ‘default for screen’, you can see the really dramatic change in clarity.I was worried that the 30HZ would be an issue but it has not affected it for work purposes and even for video, I have not seen any problem. I never play games so I cannot comment on how it would perform for that application. It’s a non-issue as far as I am concerned for my purposes.In my view, this is the perfect companion to a MBP retina display.

  5. Brilliant screens. If there are any defects in them, then I cannot see them. Colour is strong and vibrant. Necessitated 4K graphics card but that is obvious.One point I would mention is an annoying nag message which pops up every time the monitor is turned on, to tell you to use the supplied cables. According to LG this cannot be disabled, if you do not used the supplied cables, . These are way too short for my setup and so I have to put up with them nagging me.LG support informed me that they were designed for those monitors, implying that I should not use other cables. Review loses a point due to this.

  6. Plugged in a USB-C to DisplayPort cable from my Intel NUC”s Thunderbolt port to monitor. Greeted by warning “use cables supplied”. So tried the supplied HDMI to HDMI cable, but get exactly same message! Yet both cables seem to work fine and Windows 10 Pro reports 3840 x 2160 @ 59 Hz for both (but isn’t it supposed to be limited to 30Hz for HDMI?). It is impossible to remove this message and the supplied cables are ridiculously short. The message obscures windows log on dialogue and takes ages to vanish. Just annoying, and worrying. What on earth is this all about?EDIT; now given four stars (not three). You have to use the hidden ‘joystick’ under the monitor to get rid of the message. Why not permit use of mouse or keyboard given it is MS-Windows booting up? Arrrggghh. The manual isn’t the most useful of documents, but the monitor now deserves at least four stars (not my original three).

  7. This review is for the 2019 UM7500PLA model. I say this because a lot of the information currently on this page, from the product description, to the user reviews, to the Q&A section is for the 2018 model and there are several significant differences.1) The 2019 model DOES come with the Magic Remote. You do not need to purchase this separately.2) The 2019 model DOES allow Alexa to turn on and off the TV, although that’s about the limit of her usefulness here (more on that later)3) I’ve not noticed any of the light bleed or burn-in issues others have reported, yet.4) This has 4 HDMI ports, not 3. It also has two USB ports, optical/toslink output, some RCA connectors and bluetooth. It does not have a headphone jack, which may or may not be a concern.The TV is pretty much what you’d expect for a mid-range 4K TV. Picture quality is pretty good overall, there’s a variety of customisation options for colour, contrast, etc. It does support HDR (which is far more impressive than 4K itself IMHO). The distance between the feet is about 1m. You need a hefty space to put this TV on, or you’ll need to buy an aftermarket stand as I did.Some negatives:Alexa integration is pretty poor. It takes a lot of faffing about, including enabling both LG Thinq Alexa skills to get the functionality working, and even then, it’s not great. If you’ve ever owned a Fire Stick, and found Alexa’s ability to link to an Echo and then launch apps, find programmes across multiple services, and all that lovely stuff convenient, you can forget about it here. She doesn’t even know how to launch the Prime Video app. If you ask her to find a specific programme like you can on the Fire Stick, she might occasionally say ‘Here’s what I found’ and nothing happens.If you’re running through a Sky box (and presumably other types of STB), Alexa doesn’t seem able to pause, rewind, etc. although the Magic Remote can do this manually.If you have a hard-of-hearing family member, LG has unfortunately removed the ability for the TV to output audio to two separate devices at once UNLESS one of those devices is the TV’s own speakers. My previous LG TV, a ~2016 model, with a headphone jack, could output to the headphones and a soundbar at the same time. With the headphone jack now removed, it doesn’t seem possible to do this without aftermarket products, even if you hookup headphones to the RCA connections.Some of the default video settings can hurt more than help. Trumotion, for example, has limited use but a lot of the default profiles have it enabled by default. Turn off in Advanced Picture settings if you’re getting the Soap Opera effect.Positives, and room for improvement:TV is very fast. Apps don’t take forever to load, and although WebOS is a little unintuitive in places, it’s easy enough to get the hang of. You will probably find yourself ‘Erring’ through menus early on, trying to find certain functions, but soon it becomes pretty clear how to do what.The Magic Remote, a sort of Universal-remote lite, is very useful. The pointer can be a little temperamental, but being able to control your TV, Sky box, Xbox, soundbar, and other devices too (supports Fire Stick) is very helpful. I find the buttons are a little compact for my stubby fingers, but that’s a minor issue.Image quality is very good. HD is very clear, the colours are vibrant and sports, movies, games, etc. all look fantastic. Obviously, 4K looks good – although I don’t find HD to 4K to be a massive leap – but the HDR is what shines. Watch some of the Netflix Originals, like Stranger Things, in 4K HDR and you should be very impressed, especially during the darker scenes. It really helps bring out the mood of the lighting.

  8. Absolutely raging. Seen the adverts about Alexa and how you can control the TV with Alexa. I had the 2017 version of this TV which doesn’t have Alexa integration. I wanted Alexa to control my TV as she controls everything else in my home, so I sold my 2017 TV and bought this 2018 model.Upon setting it up (which was not straight forward), I started using the Alexa controls. The voice commands don’t always work, but the one that really annoyed me is that once you turn the TV off, you can’t turn it back on with Alexa.I thought this was a problem with the TV and contacted LG, they got back in touch advising that none of their TVs able to switch on the TV with Alexa, as the wireless adapter is not powered up in standby mode…My intention was to get rid of the remote or to be able to stop digging down the sides of the sofa. This obviously will not be the case and I spent £160 upgrading my TV for this feature alone.Furthermore, LG were rude and said they never advertised the ability to turn on the TV with Alexa. When I explained that they advertise the ability to control the TV and that I believe any reasonable person would class turning it on and off as a basic level of control, the adviser disagreed with me and said he didn’t believe it was misleading advertising…As I said raging!

  9. UPDATE: After using the TV for a week, I have noticed the image burn getting worse. If I pause a film for just 2 minutes, bright areas of the screen get burned in and persist for any amount of time between 5 to 30 minutes. I do not know if this is a one off issue or a wider problem with LG panels, but I will definitely be seeking a return or replacement.Overall a decent TV. Picture quality is very good, but definitely looks better in a darker room as the brightness can suffer somewhat when in a brighter room. For built in speakers, the sound quality is surprisingly good, if lacking a little bass. HDR isn’t automatically enabled, so make sure you check the settings and enable ‘HDMI ULTRA HD Deep Colour’ (LG’s over complicated name for HDR). The user interface seems unnecessarily complicated (and slow… despite LG’s boasting of “A fast powerful brain…” with “…4 cores of processing…”) at least compared to the TV this one is replacing. For picture settings, for example, you have to press the setting button which brings up a mini menu from the right of the screen, but from there you can only change presets. To adjust individual settings, you then have to scroll to the bottom of the menu to bring up the full settings menu. LG appears to have just added unnecessary steps to what should be a simple process. I have noticed a small bit of burn-in after I paused a film for about 15 minutes, but it was only noticeable on block-colour screens and quickly faded. Small bit of advice, invest in some £10 USB LED strip lighting to stick to the back of the TV. In very dark rooms (such as using at night) the black levels will appear quite bright and washed out, but with a bit of ‘bias lighting from those LED strips, the black levels appear much darker, improving the overall contrast and picture. Despite offering lots of settings to adjust the picture, after about 5/6 hours adjusting and using my own preset settings, I found myself reverting the picture to factory settings and just using the Standard preset (with a couple post-processing rubbish, such as Dynamic Colour, Noise Reduction and TruMotion turned off) because the LG default settings are actually pretty decent overall. Overall, quite pleased with it.

Overall, quite pleased with it.

  16. 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… BUT NO. 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. But this bugs me, why would anyone want a TV where the attitude is like “that’ll do”. I want my TV to be perfect out of the box, and backlight bleed isn’t perfect. I spotted it straight away, and I couldn’t stop seeing it after. (Sorry for the rubbish pics, but you can see the weird light coming from the edge of the TV)I gave the TV a try, I streamed Planet Earth 2 in 4K, and it was actually very pleasant. The colours were nice and bright, the image nice and sharp, and the sound was pretty decent, but again… in the dark scenes I could see the backlight bleed, and the blacks are pretty grey (but this is also not really a big issue).I gave the Alexa integration a go. Downloaded the Alexa skill and tried it… The app was rated 1 star so that was a bit of a red flag from the get-go. But yeah, it deserves 1 star. It doesn’t have many features at all, it might aswell not exist.The legs themselves, I see a lot of people complain about, but they’re really not THAT flimsy. They hold up fine, I didn’t notice the screen ‘leaning forward’ or anything like other reviews, but that’s just my experience. They’re OK, they support the TV and they hold up fine, and they weren’t too big, which is good.Unfortunately I did return the TV. It definitely doesn’t suit me. There were a lot of features which got me excited when I bought it, It’s my first 4k TV, Alexa integration sounded awesome, the low input lag would’ve been good for when I occasionally use my PS4 gaming, but it just wasn’t enough. I was overall disappointed with my purchase. The backlight bleed, the aggravatingly slow OS, the lack of real Alexa integration just really killed it, it didn’t feel like a TV that stood out from the rest.In summary, the TV is OK. It get’s the job done, if you have lots of patience and don’t really care about Alexa controlling your TV then it would be more suited to you. It’s really nothing special. Hope I helped.

  17. Picture quality is very good on this TV. Looks really good for gaming (used with an Xbox One S). Easy to set up and use.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. I just didn’t trust them. They would also require a very wide stand. Thankfully the TV is very easy to wall mount and arguably looks better.

  18. 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 years!You can even control your console on YouTube and the dashboard with the TV remote via HDMI!It will also switch on and off the PS4 or Xbox if you turn the TV on or off first or vice versa. Crazy.Another good thing is you can just insert a USB stick into the rear of the TV and start recording your TV programs.

  19. Screen seemed fine for a while, but it has since developed an issue. Screen works for a minute or so and then goes black. Backlight is lit but screen menu doesn’t work and there’s a high pitch squeal from the monitor. UPDATE: I’ve received a replacement one, this has a similar issue where the monitor would crash requiring the power to be disconnected

  20. Excellent display, gaming is awesome as the view distance is maximised along with watching movie content using Films & TV app on windows, is mind blowing. The panel has sharp contrast so the colours are vibrant. My main use however is for financial analysis so for me, I can fully utilize the width. If you are someone who will be using for watching YouTube, then this is not suitable as you will have side edges when watching but if you are editing videos or doing anything analytical then this will be a dream to use.One thing to watch out for is the brightness of the display. I always have to keep it in readers mode because it burns my eyes as it is super bright even on the lowest setting.Finally, the tilt of the screen is fixed so it is better to hang it up on a wall at a desired angle and height.I will be ordering another one very soon.

  21. 25″ ReviewLet me start by saying this is the best monitor I have ever owned. The colours and depths of this monitor bring games to life so much that im playing games I’ve not touched in years because they feel so refreshed.The Matt finish on the display is flawless and the picture is sharp and clear without any glare. I don’t have the best eye sight and my eyes get tired rather easily when staring at a screen for long periods of time, however, with the crystal clear clarity of this monitor and it’s gentle backlighting, those problems are non existent.Onto the wide screen aspect. The monitor runs at 2560x1080p resolution. 21:9 ultra widescreen as opposed to the standard 1920×1080 16:9 widescreen. This lets you have alot more horizontal screen space. For games that natively support this, its a game changer. I play alot of mmorpg’s, currently im playing Final Fantasy XIV Realm Reborn and Guild Wars 2. Both games support this resolution and look superb, after having the extra visibility and more screen space to assign hot bars, extra chat boxes etc, without cluttering up screen space yet STILL being able to see so much more and it feeling more immersive, I really couldn’t go back to a normal monitor. If your an mmo gamer then this is the monitor for you. Playing world boss events or world vs world on guild wars 2, or large raids on realm reborn are a delight when you can see so much more of what’s going on.Other games also benefit immensely from the extra screen space, from having the extra field of view to see enemies In battlefield or call of duty, to fitting more units on your screen in age of empires 2 HD, even rocket league benefits from being able to see a larger play area at one time and seeing when the opposition are on your tail.All in all its a beautiful crisp clear monitor with an incredible range of colours, which with its ultra widescreen aspect ratio, will make you fall in love with gaming all over again.HOWEVER, there are a few reasons I just can’t give it 5 stars.First of all, even with the game setting on, blacks can be way too dark. When night time approaches in games or you enter a dark cave for example, a lot of game detail can be lost in shadows and dark areas. Ive worked around this by setting the monitor to game mode and changing the black correction slider from 50 to 75. This fixes the problem In 90% of games but some may need an additional boost in gamma in the games ‘in game” settings, mostly horror games. Whilst the picture quality is still incredible after these changes it’s a shame to see a slight degradation in colour with some games.My second issue is game support. Whilst this doesn’t directly reflect in the monitors capabilities itself, it can be a very frustrating issue.Most games will support the 2560×1080 resolution natively and work flawlessly, but you will no doubt have some games that don’t. You can either run these games at 1920×1080 windowed to avoid stretching, which would be liked playing on something like a 20″ monitor with the screen space you’ll get, OR if your a bit more techy, there are third party mods for most games.Whilst these mods can make games playable and enjoyable, don’t expect them to be perfect.The main games I’ve had issues with are actually all Bethesda games, Skyrim Remastered, Fallout 4 and Evil within. All games I’ve got running near perfect, but needed mods having only minor HUD problems which are not bad enough to ruin gameplay or cause any real issues.So should you get this monitor? YES!BUT! Do a bit of research first at which games you plan to play on it to see if they support 21:9. Most newer games coming out will support 21:9 out the box but if your planning on playing games that were released during the ps3 or xbox 360 era, then bare in mind these games whilst released on PC too, will most likely be console ports and were originally designed with a standard 16:9 screen aspect for T.Vs. so may not work without some modding or just being run in a 1920×1080 window.Also make sure your graphics card is up for the additional resolution. Most games I’ve tried have taken a 15-20% performance hit since coming from 1920×1080. However my gtx 780 and i5 4570 still bring in 50-60 fps with most games maxed out at this resolution without exceeding the cards 3gb memory.Owning the 25″ version of this screen I’ve also found anti aliasing isnt necessary because of the pixel density and having AA on can actually make games look worse. Turning this setting off in most games will also save you a few fps.Thanks for reading, I hope this helps!

  22.  Straight out the box and already have issues. Please see video.

  23. Led broken

  24. 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… BUT NO. 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. But this bugs me, why would anyone want a TV where the attitude is like “that’ll do”. I want my TV to be perfect out of the box, and backlight bleed isn’t perfect. I spotted it straight away, and I couldn’t stop seeing it after. (Sorry for the rubbish pics, but you can see the weird light coming from the edge of the TV)I gave the TV a try, I streamed Planet Earth 2 in 4K, and it was actually very pleasant. The colours were nice and bright, the image nice and sharp, and the sound was pretty decent, but again… in the dark scenes I could see the backlight bleed, and the blacks are pretty grey (but this is also not really a big issue).I gave the Alexa integration a go. Downloaded the Alexa skill and tried it… The app was rated 1 star so that was a bit of a red flag from the get-go. But yeah, it deserves 1 star. It doesn’t have many features at all, it might aswell not exist.The legs themselves, I see a lot of people complain about, but they’re really not THAT flimsy. They hold up fine, I didn’t notice the screen ‘leaning forward’ or anything like other reviews, but that’s just my experience. They’re OK, they support the TV and they hold up fine, and they weren’t too big, which is good.Unfortunately I did return the TV. It definitely doesn’t suit me. There were a lot of features which got me excited when I bought it, It’s my first 4k TV, Alexa integration sounded awesome, the low input lag would’ve been good for when I occasionally use my PS4 gaming, but it just wasn’t enough. I was overall disappointed with my purchase. The backlight bleed, the aggravatingly slow OS, the lack of real Alexa integration just really killed it, it didn’t feel like a TV that stood out from the rest.In summary, the TV is OK. It get’s the job done, if you have lots of patience and don’t really care about Alexa controlling your TV then it would be more suited to you. It’s really nothing special. Hope I helped.

  25. Picture quality is very good on this TV. Looks really good for gaming (used with an Xbox One S). Easy to set up and use.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. I just didn’t trust them. They would also require a very wide stand. Thankfully the TV is very easy to wall mount and arguably looks better.

  26. 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 years!You can even control your console on YouTube and the dashboard with the TV remote via HDMI!It will also switch on and off the PS4 or Xbox if you turn the TV on or off first or vice versa. Crazy.Another good thing is you can just insert a USB stick into the rear of the TV and start recording your TV programs.

  27. My previous TV was 32inches, so this 49 inch was a bit of a “shock to my system”, (I’m a pensioner in my 70s).I unpacked it myself, but I am quite fit. I set it onto the existing TV table and plugged it in. The Magic remote came with the TV and I fitted the batteries. I have internet and wired the TV direct to my router. Switched on the TV, and played with the remote. I followed the on screen instructions. All worked well.WHAT I DON’T LIKE.1 All these “permissions” impingeing on my privacy, and some might not even be necessary. e.g. registration for the guarantee. the LG site would not recognise my TV model. I phoned the help line and was told that registration was not necessary!!!2 The feet on the TV set are VERY, VERY wide appart, (95cm) and I couldn’t set it at a convenient viewing angle on the TV Table. I had to make up a shelf to allow one of the feet to slightly overhang the rear of the table and also the front of the table. With a bit of thought by the designers, I’m sure that 80cms would be adequate and achievable, as well as being more convenient for most, who have to set the TV in a corner of the room.Overall, I am very happy and am still experimenting with all the settings and capabilities, including bluetooth for my earphones. Great TV

  28. I originally bought the Hisense H55U7AUK 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD, which I returned within 24 hours because the picture quality was extremely poor. I decided to spend the extra £200 on this LG model and boy I am glad I did.The picture quality straight out of the box is excellent and requires very little adjusting to achieve the optimal settings. Sound is also very good, even without a sound bar.The magic remote is also a nice touch. The voice recognition and mouse like pointer that appear on the screen makes the TV even easier to use.Extremely easy to set up, the TV goes through everything step by step and helps you all the way.Overall excellent TV, I would definitely highly recommend.

  29. I needed a quality second TV for our Games/Kids room. The TV gets used for Xbox one and a number of Films e.t.c. My main TV is a LG 960 OLED which is nothing short of stunning. Being a second TV, I didn’t have the budget for another OLED so looked at alternatives.After reading a number of reviews this TV ticked all of the boxes, Game Mode has a very low LAG, Magic Remote, same tech as used in the OLEDs for black, the fantastic LG WebOS, Dolby Atmos, and Vision.My only concerns were that a number of people have commented on dark scenes, the IPS/LED shining through to almost a gray, I believe Linus Tech Tips also covered this TV in one of their shows but did put it next to a Premium top end OLED (Over 3k)I’ve received it and very impressed. I’m impressed with the blacks, they look really good and not to much backlight bleed. The standard out of the box picture settings are on the ECO side, so will need playing around with but very impressed considering owning an OLED. I believe the increased backlight bleed maybe possibly from the Dolby Vision was I tested on Netflix.Sound wise, it’s actually not bad – using two 10w speakers the sound actually does travel quite well where I have it setup. I would recommend a sound bar or a set of decent speakers for the main TV though, but perfectly adequate – just nothing special.Fantastic premium TV, along with WebOS and the Magic remote – it’s a pleasure to use.

  33. Great picture, lovely bright colours, software easy to use. First thing to remember is you need to calibrate it, it comes on eco settings. And to make the most of it use quick menu to change according to what your watching and how light or dark the room is, but once you get the hang of it it’s great. Nearly 3 weeks in and I still catch myself commenting on how real the skin looks on characters or how many wrinkles the news presenter actually has! Lol

  34.  Be very cautious over this model as it looks like there’s quite a few faulty or badly manufactured ones out there. First of all ASK who I first purchased the TV from were very quick to have this back and refund the monies, I also tried this TV from a different retailer, Reliant who weren’t quite as quick to rectify the issue, I had to chase after their silly 10 days return policy but they did give a discount off the better OLED model in the end. First impressions for this TV where fantastic, the picture and sound are very good, watching normal terrestrial television or some streaming services didn’t at first seem to be an issue. The issue comes more to light when you are streaming are watching movies in 16.9 format with the black bands at the top and bottom of the screen then it hits you. The edges of the screen have little LED lights that alter and flicker along with the light needed for the scene, some of these are very random, have a life of their own and stand out a lot and you cant help but notice this and are drawn in to these. LG didn’t offer much help on the support line, however I bid pop into Richer sounds and the assistant, who was very help full, explained that this edge light technology, does have it’s issues and these sets sound like they have been put together incorrectly as you shouldn’t be able the see the lights so much. Not worth the money for me and sounds like LG have thrown these together for a price point and not taken any care in the product.

  35. The SHORT answer:To all movie fans and screen geeks – avoid this TV! If the edge lights in dark scenes won’t bother you then maybe this TV is fine. But for £630 (at time of writing 21/02/2020) consumers should expect better.The LONG answer:Much like another Amazon review, issues occur when viewing dimly lit and dark ambient scenes.Edge lights at the side of the screen can project random light and sometimes vertical shafts across the screen. The effect is subtle and difficult to capture with a phone-camera so I can only illustrate this with extreme examples (see pictures in review).Once you have seen these edge lights you cannot un-see them. They pop up every now and then to say Hi! Just as your favourite scene in a movie reaches it’s climax. The sidelights create a banded variation in brightness across the screen.Independent reviewers have rated this screen highly. It’s even a “Which? Best Buy”. I can only assume it wasn’t tested thoroughly under all circumstances, or reviewers received better quality panels.Pros:My initial impressions with this TV were great. Very vibrant colour and good contrast for an IPS screen in well-lit scenes. With LGs AI features turned OFF, the picture is outstanding. For watching general broadcast television, The News or your average documentary this TV is fine.Good sound quality (with the AI off), good dynamic range for this mid-priced 55” TV.Cons:TV works best with AI features OFF, but it is one of the main selling points? So what are you paying for?Annoying side panel lights in dark scenes. Particularly distracting when watching widescreen movies with black-bars at the top and bottom of the screen. Can ruin the “ambience” in darkly lit scenes and games.LGs motion smoothing tech ‘TruMotion’ – turn it off. It is glitchy when viewing 4K, visual artefacts (a cloud of blurry pixels) chase fast moving objects around the screen.AISound – turn it off. During calibration, the AISound preview appears to improve sound quality, particularly bass. However in practice dialog fluctuates wildly in volume. You’ll be reaching for the subtitle button.Smart remote with a neat “point-and-click” feature, which is very intuitive. Unfortunately the rest of the remote is uninspired and the menus are clunky wasting this great feature.

Crazy.Another good thing is you can just insert a USB stick into the rear of the TV and start recording your TV programs.

  39. I used this product for productivity, watching films and gaming.For productivity it’s a great monitor – the extra width is very useful for fitting more programs on-screen at once, it essentially allows you to have 2 programs on-screen at once. Excel is particularly benefited here, on an empty sheet (at 100%) scale you can see all the way to column ‘AN’ without scrolling.For watching films this monitor was okay to use. One negative was the backlight bleed in the two bottom corners/top mid of the screen, which was emphasized by dark scenes in films, and resulted in very weak black levels. Otherwise, the colours were good (vibrant) due to the IPS panel used.I’ll mention the ‘HDR effect’ in this section as it’s most relevant here. Essentially, it’s a pointless effect and just cranks the brightness to max and makes a few other smaller changes – which to my eye this actually made films looks worse. This monitor lacks the diming zones, bit-depth and max brightness to be a ‘proper’ HDR display anyway. If you were being swayed by this monitor’s HDR effect then don’t, it’s terrible.For the speakers, they are very tinny and almost completely lack bass. Again, a disappointing feature.For gaming the monitor was good to use. You can increase the refresh rate to 75hz, and if you set the response time to ‘fastest’, the monitor is quite responsive. The inclusion of FreeSync (40-75hz range over HDMI) was also useful as I have an AMD card. The added width was also nice as it made all games more immersive, particularly driving games.Overall I would rate the monitor 3/5. Bad QC (large amounts of backlight bleed), a disappointing HDR effect and weak speakers ruin what is otherwise a decent monitor. As such, I would recommend saving yourself some money and going for the cheaper version instead (29WK500) as the HDR effect and speakers are not worth paying the price premium for.

  40. I have been using this monitor for a week now, and i have tested mainly on games.So first i want to say that i had a samsung cfg70 24 VA panel QLED 1ms 144hz and it was a good monitor , specially if you are playing FPS games, however it was too much for my eyes , i got a lot of eye strain no matter what i’ve tried.So i decided to buy an UW IPS display and this one was at a very good price, so i went for it and i don’t regret it.I mainly wanted to play World of Warcraft and Dota 2 on it and i must say it does an amazing job, i have so much more field of view. And i don’t really miss the high refresh rate and 1ms … This monitor still has decent 5ms and 75hz ref rate without having to overclock it.It has a crisp image with vibrant colors, and with PPI of 96 it is slightly better than an 24 inch FHD monitor with 91 PPI.Im playing with GTX 1060 and it has no problems with the 2560:1080.The HDR option is not great at all , i mean this is not true HDR anyway.The supper resolution option is too aggressive in my opinion unless you set it at low , then it’s actually very nice.It supports HDMI 2.0 and DP 1.2 so that’s good.Overall Movies and videos that are shot on 21:9 and games that support it are amazing to watch and play really, and if you are thinking to move from 24-25 inch to a 29 inch then yes it’s a good upgrade for sure, at least i am very pleased, and i don’t miss my Samsung 144hz monitor at all… now i cant look at 16:9 the same way anymore, however if you are coming from a 27 inch better look for 34 UW.Only downside of the monitor would be that it’s not curved , but honestly not a big deal at all.I recommend this product .

  41. Great monitor for video/photo editing. Could be brighter and i wouldn`t mind the whole thing to be the same colour (back of the monitor is white).Cons: IPS screen (accurate colours), large enough for basic video/photo editing, great for gamingCons: not the brightest monitor you can get at this price range, height not adjustable, white plastic at the back of the monitor

  42. My previous TV was 32inches, so this 49 inch was a bit of a “shock to my system”, (I’m a pensioner in my 70s).I unpacked it myself, but I am quite fit.

  45. TV arrived totally smashed. Weekend ruined…

  46. Unbelievable value for money. It’s used every day in the lounge, not had any problems. Probably not ideal for wall mounting as it’s quite a deep TV, but because of this the built in speakers are acceptable. The default picture settings aren’t great, but they rarely are. Honestly can’t fault it.

  47. When I ordered the tv I expected a lot less than I received. For the price it is a great tv with all the great features of WebOS. The sound quality is decent and the picture quality is great for an lcd thought the blacks aren’t brilliant. But in all honesty I don’t think you can get much better without spending 3 times the money on OLED
