LG Electronics LGLG 43UK6300PLB 43-Inch UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV : Great TV!

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.

The picture is great and the sound is good enough for me. The os is horrible – every different input has a different set of possible picture styles for some reason and it’s so hard to get it to just accept that there’s a certain way you like your picture to be. The backlight setting is the one i find myself changing most now, and that’s buried about six clicks down in the menus (none of the picture settings like colour or contrast are readily available to tweak like they would be on an old tv). Some of the settings are just sometimes inexplicably greyed out (e. It always defaults to ‘tv’ mode even though i will never use it for anything other than hdmi 1. My phone has never been able to find it on the network. The amazon prime app has serious lip sync problems (i’ve also seen that on a samsung tv so it’s probably not the tv’s fault but the app’s). All that said, i’m using it 100% of the time with the ps4 and they make a good pairing – just wish i could have quick access to the backlight setting for day and night viewing options. It was very good value, just wish they’d employ a ui expert – it’s not rocket science.

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.

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.

Came with freesat and free view connection. You can chose either as the live tv source. Wifi or ethernet connection both work perfectly.

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 thought upgrading from my old lg hdtv would be a simple matter of swapping over the leads. The whole setup process with this uhd tv is a bit of a faff to be honest and is v-e-r-y slow. Also, be aware that the hdmi sockets seem to be particularly fussy and the lead that worked fine to connect my sky q box to the old tv simply produced a ‘no signal’ error here. So, a couple of new and pricy hdmi leads later, i was almost in business. Oh, quick mention for the annoying little feet supplied with this tv. They twist loosely into place and are held by two small screws and don’t really feel that secure. They are positioned a whopping 102cm apart so, to paraphrase roy scheider in jaws (which i’m currently watching in uhd) you’re probably going to need a bigger tv stand. Enough of the negative stuff.

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.

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.

We are over the moon with this purchase.

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.

Like everything about this tv especially as it connects to my google home device and can be controlled by voice commands.

Best tv ever for the price i had it at. The quality of the picture i see is amazing and the sound.

The more i find out which settings to tinker with, the more i like the tv. Stand isn’t really that flimsy like some reviews state. The remote, especially when typing is appallingly slow – however, there is an lg smartphone app so i can use my phone as a remote. I personally don’t have a terrestrial aerial and there wasn’t an obvious skip option for this during the setup so that was a little irksome. There is optical out for home cinema which is a win imo. The on screen black outer border is noticeably not very black. Also not noticeably laggy with ps4.

For a smart tv this tv is dumb. Picture quality is great, however i was disappointed by the feautres and user guide, the user guide is not user friendly imo, lots of clicking different options to find the information you need. I tried connecting the tv to alexa and google assistant, neither worked. I purchased this tv for it’s ability to record, it does record but you have to watch the programe you are recording?.I had to attached my old youview box to record and watch other tv chanels. More problems with the tv, the channels keep dissapearing. I have returned the tv to amazon after contacting amazon help and lg help twice.

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.

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.

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.

I have a 55″ lg uhd tv, so i chose this because i like webos. This tv has a good picture the sound is ok and, unlike some have said, the tv can connect to bluetooth speakers and headphones. I like the tv, but, as some reviews have mentioned, the epg and webos are slow, which is a pity as the 55″ i have is a lot quicker. It isn’t the 55″ version of this tv, so it may be that the models across the range are slow. The legs are very wobbly and don’t feel at all sturdy. When my son is jumping up and down whilst playing on the playstation, i do worry that the tv is going to fall over, that’s how unsteady it is. The epg, whilst slow, is very good and the network connection for amazon & netflix is brilliant. Picture wise, the ps4 looks amazing and the clarity of the picture on all sources is second to none. I like the tv, its’ only drawback is it’s slow and the legs.

Great quality budget tv for the price paid. However this price was clearly reflected in the handling and care taken from whoever supplied it. Box came damaged, tv however seems fine for now, luckily, the massive hole in the box was at the back of the tv not front which probably saved it. Inside the box itself the screws to attach the legs were missing so i had to get some of those myself. Not much care was taken when putting items such as the remote/cables into the box. Just thrown into a bag and sealed all together. Overall in terms of the tv i would highly recommend it, looks great on my ps4 pro and has low input lag. Maybe double check elsewhere as the risk of it coming smashed like many others in this review seems high.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Picture quality very good even when used as a pc monitor.

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.

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”?.

The picture on the screen is excelent. I have an up scaling dvd player to get by old films to 1080p, and this combined with this tv really brings the best out of them. You almost get a 3d effect because of the depth of clarity on the screen.

I was impressed with the overall weight being lighter than the smaller lg tv it replaced. The one downside is if you are using the supplied feet be careful they are a wee bit flimsy but they do the job just make sure you screw them in tightly before standing the unit up . The picture quality for me is superb, the sound is fine for us as we have it in a smallish room and it is perfectly adequate with good enough bass and treble. Others may wish to purchase sound boxes if you are using it in a large room or simply want the best quality that is possible. The set comes with the colour default set to eco (whatever that is) but i ran through the options and settled for the eco. Some of the options are quite garish but choices should suit everyone. Unfortunately i am not up to scratch on technical issues but suffice to say that the model for us, is perfect and hopefully like its smaller predecessor it will last the course. Our previous 30 inch set is still working as well as the day we bought it and now belongs to someone else who is perfectly happy with it. Lg make good tvs and i would say that this is as good as it gets for the price range. A good choice if you fancy one.

Don’t seem to be able to completely disable overscan on hdmi inputs. I had to adapt my gpu settings to match which is not ideal. No light bleeding as some other review claimed. No problem with using the on-screen keyboard. Pixels are not 100% rgb 1:1 like a 4k monitor, with or without overscan adaptation if you look closely at it. But it can still show black text in 4k quite crisply. Hdmi can handle 3840 x 2160 at 60hz. The a+ power thing is a cheat. It basically keeps dialling back the brightness dynamically as quickly as it thinks you won’t notice. Of course with a pc hooked up to it, you are noticing it all the time.

Picture quality and size is perfect, bright colours and very vibrant and the blacks are dark and inky as should be. The colours aren’t as sharp as an oled tv which is to be expected but this tv does what it needs to and more, and i use this for 4k gaming, the tv can also upscale any game to 4k if it doesn’t support it and the result is fantastic. This tv is everything you need for entertainment, it has all major entertainment apps like spotify, netflix & youtube. It also has a bluetooth feature to play audio from your mobile. It has an app store to download apps onto the tv and it contains 3 hdmi slots to add additional entertainment devices like consoles. I would highly recommend this product if you have a sdr tv that only goes up to 1080p as this is a truly amazing screen that i have loved since it arrived.

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 yearsyou can even control your console on youtube and the dashboard with the tv remote via hdmiit will also switch on and off the ps4 or xbox if you turn the tv on or off first or vice versa. Another good thing is you can just insert a usb stick into the rear of the tv and start recording your tv programs.

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.
