I already have a lg 55″ 4k 2017 model and am familiar with the product. This model is exeptional value bought through amazon. It takes a bit of time to set up to get the best from it but it won’t disapoint. Lg have terrible manuals that you can download if you want. But nothing beats spending a bit learning the setup. One example is each setting tv,usb and hdmi has it’s individual settings. So if you set brightness,sharpness. Hdr etc on your tv that suits what you want in picture quality, you have to setup again for say 4k bluray player on hdmi 1. Once this is done you don’t have to do it again.
I have the bigger more expensive version of this lg tv and it is excellent so decided to get this smaller screen size for spare room. However even though the picture quality is super and sound is good, this product obviously has a much slower cpu processor as it takes 3 times longer to get to start screen or to display menu screens than the bigger tv. Streaming videos etc are all great and speedy but on this tv webos is too slow and clunky. Otherwise a great tv for this price.
Had gone through mixed reviews for this tv and bought it anyways. I have been using this tv for last 1 month now and this tv is simply amazing. Great value for money, awesome 4k display, nice viewing angle, quality sound and easy to use web os. Overall a very satisfy customer after buying this tv and because of amazon’s prompt delivery.
For the price you certainly get a great bargain for this tv with its excellent picture, very good speakers, and smart tv features. The build feel quality is not bad and good enough, does look good though. On setting up the tv you may feel a little disappointed with the standard setting picture. I do recommend going into advanced picture settings to adjust colour, brightness, sharpness, backlight, contrest, warmth and to dig a bit deeper into the more picture settings to get the best such as pixel/uhd (set off on standard) settings for a more detailed picture. Viewing angle is actually very good, a lot better than i thought it would be at this price. Not perfect but watching directly at the screen and even to the left or right at a wider angle seems unproblematic. Please note: adjusting on one source eg hdmi(3) using satellite, will not transfer the same to different sources; eg smart tv channels, gaming hdmi(2). This allows you to set up different (or the same) picture set-ups/preferences for different sources. Sound is quite impressive esp when compared to flatscreen modern tv’s at 42″(+) priced around £300-500(+).
This television is fantastic value at its current special offer price. Its outstanding in every way other than the feet which are quite awkward to attach, very flimsy and cause the tv to tilt forward slightly. I have got round this by putting the set on a high table unit (appx 3 feet high), so you don’t really notice the tilt. The legs are also spaced very wide apart, they won’t fit on a regular unit, but fortunately for me the second unit i had in storage was wide enough (39 inches) to accomodate the feet. Apart from that, set up is easy. I have attached a laptop to the unit as well, with no problem and the wi fi works instantly once you have put in the passwords. Its superb, i am just watching a nature programme on it, having just installed it, and the quality and colours are fantastic for the price i paid. I am, all in all, very happy with this item and have no problem recommending it (i knocked a star off for the feet otherwise it would have got top marks all round).
We are over the moon with this purchase.
Superb picture, even on old movies. Cannot comment on sound because i use surround system. Nice easy side connections so very little guess work when locating leads. My only little gripe is the stand. The feet are almost on the edge of the tv so you do need to make sure the unit you are standing it on is wide enough. A plus though is that you can fit a blu ray player underneath between the tv and the unit on which it sits. Mine is an lg blu ray(same make as the tv) so it might be different for other makes. Really impressed though and great value.
Picture quality is very good on this tv. Looks really good for gaming (used with an xbox one s). 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. They would also require a very wide stand. Thankfully the tv is very easy to wall mount and arguably looks better.
- I returned it, here’s why
- Great TV if you plan to wall mount
- Good cheap 4K HDR10 TV with 11ms for gaming!
LG 49UM7100PLB 49-Inch UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV withEcho Dot (3rd Gen)
After a fair amount of novice research i choose this tv as it fitted with my budget circa £300 and seemed to have all of the features i wanted including ultra hd 4k, wireless connection to home broadband (and future wireless speakers). We’ve had the tv for 3 days now and are very pleased with the picture quality and the user interface. I am also pleased with the sound quality and loudness (as previous tv lacked sound impact). I would recommend this tv to anyone looking for a similar upgrade to their older 1080p tv. Ours was around 8 years old as a guide and we really notice the visual and sound improvements. Note – we are yet to test bluray quality but dvd’s look good, and gaming/you tube quality is superb.
Really love this tv and the picture quality is truly amazing and sound. Id definitely recomend lg tv 10/10.
This lg tv for the excellent price is just what i needed to view hdr films, perfect size for my room and gives tv viewing in glorious colour whatever i watch. All the connections i needed. I can watch bt tv sports in ultra hd, sky q sports in ultra hd, apple 4k tv in hdr, and the rest. Even the sound from the internal tv speakers is not bad with ultra surround sound, even though i use a sound bar for the immersive sound when watching films.
This is a good tv with great sound and picture but unless you are technical and have the ability to connect your tv to a wired network you won’t be able to set up the apps. I hope this helps those who are getting the message “required update, you must update this app to launch it. The update may cause data to be stored deleted” then getting “application has not been installed. Try again” when connected to a wireless network. Plug the tv into your router with an rj45 (lan/patch) cablego to settings, general and then about tv then go to “check for update”install the update to the tv firmwareonce complete you can then update all of the apps on a wired connectionin summary, apps and firmware do not update on wireless connections and you need to update to use them when the tv is first used so you will need a cable and access to your router. I am a technical guy but lg need to consider the lack of technical skills when shipping their devices, not everyone would know to try this.
Didn’t think we needed a smart tv as used amazon fire stick and our desktop computer linked to our tv and also have sky q box. But, seems impossible to buy largish tv that’s not smart nowadays. This was bought to replace a panasonic 40” that just suddenly stopped working after around 5 years. This time around wanted/needed more hdmi ports. I had problems setting it up, no handbook, had to go online to download one – major default here. Quick set up guide provided clear as mud so thankfully a more technologically aware son obliged that evening. Not the easiest most intuitive interface to access apps still haven’t worked out either how to delete extraneous apps or reorder apps but only had it a week. Been using basicallly 3 buttons on remote home for sky, netflix and amazon for prime films etc. No doubt i’ll crack the intricacies in time but why on earth make things so complicated. What’s wrong with supplying a uk handbook with each set with quick tips etc. And, written in accessible english not geek speak or over reliance on diagrams that basically mean very little. Basically think this is a good set so far but with unfortunately a very flimsy feeling remote control. But hen set very reasonably priced it’s obviously not a sony but didn’t cost sony prices either.
Had this for a month now, easy set up and not a single problem with it.
I ordered this tv because of the name, spec and fantastic price but i had a lot of drama getting it right. First tv had a small cluster of dead pixels visible in the middle of the screen. Unit was replaced with no trouble. Second unit turned up with the screen completely destroyed. Third time lucky unit arrived today in perfect working order, however it is very clearly not brand new. Scratches over the rear casing shows its been used before. Box was in poor condition and the packaging in the box upside down. I’m so fed up with broken units turning up that i feel i need to accept it. Now however i need to pay for 2 units to be posted back which they say they will refund. Great tv but i’m left feeling disappointed.
So i purchased this tv as i don’t have a tv license and just want to watch netflix and amazon video. Once you setup the tv with your account details it works perfect. Don’t let entering details put you off, you can plug a keyboard into the usb socket and use that. Also there are additional apps that you can install and the winner for me was plex that i then installed onto my htpc downstairs and can now also stream all of my content to this tv. Other really useful features are connecting bluetooth headphones to the tv so you can listen to the audio in better quality than the tv speakers which to be fair aren’t that bad. You can connect your phone using the remote app in the google store which is free and enables to link your phone to broadcast media from it. The lg magic remote (sold separately for around £35) adds more functionality such as voice commands etc. With all this stuff to play with i haven’t really had time to test the hdr and 4k functionality that netflix provides, but from what i have seen it is superb.

LG 49UM7100PLB 49-Inch UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV withEcho Dot (3rd Gen)
Tip toeing into the world of 4k with some skepticism, i’m delightfully surprised with the resulting image resolution / frame rate and the positive effect upscaling has on my ps4 gaming. Software is simple to install and configure, gui highly accessible and easy to navigate, built-in sound is likely to appease even the sweatiest of thrill seekers, controller works fine, size is just dandy for a large room so stop wasting your time reading this and piss off please :). Oh yeah, first tv showed up with a large arse crack down the side. Broke my heart, dimwits, then they replaced it a day later, cool cats.
Great tv at a great price currently. The tv comes straight out of the box with some auto-picture options switched on by default (like auto dimming), but these seem to make the tv picture look a bit bland. When you switch the auto picture tuning features off, the picture really comes alive. Good range of connections and a simple “two pairs of little feet” type stand.
This tv does exactly hat it says in the adverts, and good value for money.
Tv is a lot thicker than my slim 1080p samsung but bought for 4k gaming on my ps4 pro. During setup i plugged the hdmi lead into the back facing port (hdmi3) and hdr deep colour mode or whaever wouldn’t enable. It is only supported on hdmi 1 and 2 on the side inputs. Changing over to that and switching picture mode to game and i am good to go. The smart functions on this tv like the samsungs are laggy and slow imo. They work fine but i have seen much better performance on the cheap android based os our 49 inch hisense tv uses. Build in speaker is good, not as good as a sound bar or whatever but perfectly acceptable. Image quality at 4k is definitely a step up, everything looks super crisp and gorgeous. 3/6/19 updates -few things i’ve noticed to be aware of.
I bought the lg 43uk6300plb tv to replace a similarly featured sony model that died before it’s third birthday – the sony was out of warranty and would have cost almost as much to repair as this lg replacement cost new. Currently around three hundred and thirty pounds from amazon the lg 43uk6300 is a bit of a bargain at the price and although it is a budget 4k model from last year it still offers quite a lot of features for your money. It has a decent selection of inputs with 3 hdmis – one is arc enabled – plus usb, component and even an f-connector for satellite amongst a few others, not bad at this price band. The tv is easy to set up and guides you through the process fairly well – it uses lg’s webos smart tv system which is no android but perfectly serviceable with all the major video apps like netflix, amazon and youtube, plus a good selection of others too. The remote control is ok, but not fantastic, and the lg tv plus smartphone app gives you basic tv control with a few other features like photo and video playback via the tv. No user guide is supplied but a pdf version can be downloaded from the amazon product page (scroll down to “product details”). Lg assemble tvs for the european market at their factory in poland so this model is not just a generic tv with an lg badge – something many other tv brands tend to do these days. If you are thinking of upgrading your tv viewing from hd to 4k then this 43” model from lg is well worth considering if you are on a budget. Nothing like the quality of lg’s highly regarded oled tvs but at a bit over three hundred pounds this 43uk6300 model offers excellent value and decent performance for the price – recommended.
Overall, i’m pleased with this tv which i’ve installed in my den to use as a 2nd tv and a computer monitor. This is not my main tv, that is a large oled , which not too much else stands comparison with – if i’m honest. However, most purchasers will be very pleased with this tv, i enhanced my purchase by buying the deluxe ‘magic remote’ that lg produce to go with it – which seemed a sensible move at the time and has indeed proved to be so. For the ‘picture purists’ out there this tv doesn’t seem to fully/evenly light the corners of the screen – not normally noticeable on your run of the mill tv programme but on content where the reproduction of white is required in the corners, it seems to my eyes to have a slightly ‘smoky look’ a the extremities – though this can be mitigated by moving your viewing position – though this is not a practical solution in normal viewing unfortunately.It is however a minor issue and seldom annoys. Sound is a little better than average to be honest which was a pleasant surprise, but i’d already bought a soundbar in any case. For the price (sub £400 in my case) i don’t think you could buy much better than this. The warranty is a bit lack lustre at 12 months as far as i can tell, and lg don’t have the most sparkling reputation when it comes to after sale consumer support, so i’m hoping this tv just keeps working without issue.
My first experience of a 4k smart tv was a cello. It didn’t go well and stopped working within 2 yrs. It also didn’t playback sound on most 4k movies even with a sound bar. Well what a difference this one is. I’ve had an lg tv before so i wasn’t overly frightened of purchasing one. It’s easy to set up, easy to use, and guess what, everything works with it. The only negative for me, the feet. They are really cheap and quite a distance apart. So by default will have to have the tv on the wall as i cannot sit it on my existing furniture.
Best tv ever for the price i had it at. The quality of the picture i see is amazing and the sound.
Picture quality very good even when used as a pc monitor.
Review of 49 inch 2018 model. Differs only from new 2019 model in that it doesn’t have alexa built in, but the proprietory lg voice activated lackey (val) instead. Picture quality among the best, as you’ll find out if you visit a pcworld showroom and have a reccy. That’s where the good stuff ends. Poor, cheap build quality, fragile insubstantial feet, thin sound, far too many options in the settings that it takes forever to get a “normal” picture, the default eco setting being cool and mauve. Remote control is hopeless, some functions are buried several layers deep in an on-screen menu. Does not upscale already upscaled blu-ray player inputs, only upscales files played directly from plugged in usb flashdrives, so expect your bluray experience to be a little down on what you got from your old hd television. Anyway, you’ll be wanting to replace this in a few years time when they bring in the “16k” format, already in developement. Why can’t they let us enjoy technology a little longer before making it “last year’s model”?.
Like everything about this tv especially as it connects to my google home device and can be controlled by voice commands.
My son bought this set after a bit of research for his university accommodation. He tried it out at home first. I was so impressed i bought one for myself. The sound is excellent i now listen to the local radio via the set. The picture quality is first class. My blu-ray dvd player pics were upgraded to an excellent level. The blacks are well black and not the ‘dark green of my previous set. The set does everything for you.
Two problems so far: (1) there are two rca phono audio outputs but they don’t appear to be connected to anything so can’t connect to my hi-fi without an optical converter; (2) i also bought a 1tb external usb 3 disc, intending to use the record/scheduler instead of my old non-hd recorder. However, one is not allowed to record one channel and view another. This makes the record function pretty useless. Just what were the designers thinking?.They make the assumption that all programmes are indefinitely available on catch-up. I do wish i had been better informed by amazon.
I was really looking forward to this tv i almost brought one last summer but went for the 4k toshiba instead but thought i’d upgrade again to 4k hdr. At first i thought it was great until i sant down at my desk to play on computer game noticed wavy lins on one side of the screen if you move your head from side to side they disappear and you can’t see them if your half a meter away but because i’m using as a monetor for my pc i’m often very close to the screen and i’m finding it really annoying i can’t stop looking at that erea and i’ve noticed it in other areas as well now i tried wiping the screen to make sure it was actually in the glass or on top if you even slightly tuch the screen it bows in so much you can drop a pound coin down the gap i then went in the living room and felt my old samsung plasma screen sold felt my toshiba screen solid hard screens this screen feels so flexible it feels like it’s plastic whole tv feels plasticity anyway i want it for gaming and i found it does 120hz at 1080p and 60hz at 4k hdr looks great and i found the picture a big upgrade from the toshiba but i’m going to request a replacement hopefully the replacement won’t have waves in the screen.
Before i start, i’ll just say i’ve given 3 for smart features because i don’t use them, so can’t comment either way. It took me a while to get used to the hdr (you need to turn it on in the picture settings) but, once i did i’d say i would hate to go back. The picture quality of this tv is beautiful and to test it i watched a bbc nature program. The detail, colour clarity etc. The sound is so-so, but i have the sound going through a home cinema surround sound system, so that was never a concern. I see some people have complained about the small feet making the tv unstable. I thought that at first after tightening the screws to what felt like their limit. I wasn’t happy, so tried to see if i could go further. Lo and behold, they seemed to pop in a tiny bit more and they are now solid and reliable. So far, this tv is well worth the money.
Spent ages trying to set this upwas meant to arrive before our holidays and did too – amazon said couriers had and couriers said they didn’t so second was ordered and still took a while to comecannot get the smart tv to work on it at all – managed to get some apps after logging into google account and setting up a lg account but kept saying error occurred for most of the day when setting upworking now except for freesat which well have to look at when have time but reasonable of the money.
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. 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.
Came with freesat and free view connection. You can chose either as the live tv source. Wifi or ethernet connection both work perfectly.
