LG Electronics LG 49UJ750V 49 inch 4K Ultra HD HDR Smart LED TV – Excellent choice for gaming

Great tv, no negatives at all. Great price and most importantly great picture.

The uhd is incredible and the free 6 month uhd netflix that came with it was a perfect way to showcase the full abilities of this tv.

Arrived in time,and in one piece. The picture quality is good. I have to say there is one thing i don’t like about the television is the shiney screen it reflects things like table lamps on the screen. I purchased this because it was a ” which” best buy. I wonder why they missed this on their test.

I’ve had my eye on this tv for a while and couldn’t pass it down at £499. I needed a 4k tv to go with the xbox scorpio and this is one of the best out there.

Did a lot of research looking for a new tv and lg had the advantage when i got the tv the picture is fantastic better than i hoped brilliant for gaming, though finding the hdr set up wasn’t easy ,.

Simple user friendly interface, the magic remote is a delight. Picture quality is amazing, sound is excellent and loud enough, no sound bar required. Note: netflix 6 month promotion is now closed.

Multi HDR with Dolby vision –

The magic remote is very good. Only disappointment is it doesn’t have a dual tuner.

Great television, i noticed the price went up just before black friday.

Brilliant tv and sound is so much better from the speakers than any samsung i have previously owned. I paid more than the current listed price of £649 for the 49″, which to my mind is an absolute steal.

Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.

Love this tv, even although i paid a bit more than other models.

Best smart tv i’ve ever had. Webos is so much better than androidtv in this case. 4k image is very crisp and colorful.

**update 31/10/17**i’ve recently upgraded to sky q 2tb box and netflix 4k, and been able to spend a little bit more time tinkering with the tv picture and audio settings, as well as performing the latest firmware update using a web download placed onto a usb stick. All in all the end results of this being another boost in viewing pleasure. The web os environment is very responsive, there’s a big selection of additional software downloads available in the lg store such as games etc. I also tuned up the audio using the built in app which utilises the smart remote to analyse the sound in your own room and suggests tweaks. It’s all just so slick, simple and rewarding to use. Of note the way the lg remote works is very similar to the new sky q touch remote, however i’d rate the lg system as easier to use. The family are also loving the simplicity of having terrestrial dtv tuned in again, and the two easy access netflix and amazon prime buttons on the remote, all of which mean less external boxes, and far simpler control than with our previous setup. We are all really very happy with this purchase, and i still feel that at the 43″ screen size this tv is an absolute steal. **end update**i was replacing an 8 year old lg plasma 720p with this screen and have found this model to be much lighter on the eyes with closer to edge to edge screen construction and a slimmer build than the older plasma, though obviously not paper think like the super expensive oled’s it’s been a welcome mark of positive progress design wise.

Dolby vision –

Whilst there’s a wide variation in picture and sound quality between the top and bottom tvs, there’s relatively little difference between the best in class models. Where there is a big difference though is in ease of use. For us this is what makes one brand/model stand out over another when both have very good pictures. We wanted to upsize our 32″ sony to a larger 43″ set – anything bigger would look out of place in our lounge. We’d been happy with the sony at first, especially when we bought a denon soundbox to go with it. However the smart features were frustrating and slow. In particular, typing what we wanted to view on youtube was so slow and fiddly we soon rarely used the tv for this, falling back on our laptops. An additional consideration is that we wanted my wife to be able to watch tv without disturbing me. Her existing perfectly good radio headphones connect into a 3. 5mm headphone socket, but we discovered that many makers no longer include a headphone socket, and if they do so not on the lower price sets.

Most sound quality direct from a tv is of poor quality. Doesn’t bother me, as i put the sound through my speakers. Picture quality is great and the magic remote control functions and smart tv content are great too (and fast).

Still learning from my son-in-law.

To set context, this tv and soundbar are replacing a sony 46” tv and onyko 2. 1 sound system bought in 2013. I mainly watch movies and sport (and as a punishment – love island). Not your usual quick amazon delivery as i ordered it on 28 aug and received it on 06 sep. But the price made it a very compelling buy and was circa £300 cheaper than the nearest rival. Day 1 with the tv was a bit of a let down. Not so much because of the tv but because of the rubbish internet i have (only 17-20 mb). I could not really test the 4k. Unless you wire the tv to the router, you may be disappointed unless you have a strong, fast internet. The tv is nicely built with the set up relatively painless.

Ultra luminance –

Really pleased with this tv it shows of my games running on my xbox one x brilliantly superb picture great sound and a fantastic price and fast delivery.

Terrific picture, sound good. The technology will take a while to get used to. I bought it because it was “which’s” best buy. After a lifetime of buying sony and forgetting it, i hope that lg proves to be as reliable then i’ll be a convert.

The nifty wand style remote took a little getting used to but is actually very good. The auto brightness is somewhat over zealous so i tend to not use it. Sound is okay – volume very good, but often have to play with the ‘modes’ as speech gets buried by music. Not sure how to definitively fix that to be honest. Also; i have a nas and connect to the set via hdmi – this means it appears twice as there doesn’t appear to be a way to remove a wireless connected device from the sources list. Overall these are minor nitpicks, as expected when you spend a decent amount of money on anything.

Aluminium frame design –

A nice tv, got all the bells and whistles you need, plus the processor is quite fast so operating system runs smoothly. Worth spending a little extra for this model, rather than a lower grade model. Only downside is that like all the satililite and aerial tv’s i have seen, you can’t record and watch another channel. You can only watch a streaming service. This 43inch is for the bedroom. I use a 65inch lg in the lounge.

Easy to set up very good picture great for sports on h d.

Perfect for the bedroom, 4k works well, picture good and all the apps you need.

  1. Very pleased with this tv, the guide and magic remote do get some getting used to. Sometimes i have trouble with the usb hdd recording – it does not always work when the tv is turned on, but switching it off and on again seems to work.

    1. Only had it for a week, so still exploring its features: so far so good.

    Some things have improved, somethings are worse. Having an lg tv for a number of years now with the original webos i can say that the response is a lot quicker, picture quality on this set is amazing imo. Haven’t used 3d for years but immediately miss it knowing we can no longer use it???gone from a top lg 43 inch tv to this one same size as nothing bigger will fit, i’ve noticed picture quality is defiantly a lot better, dolby vision seems to make a huge difference in netflix, however we moved the old set upstairs and turning on the old set feels slow now to respond but the sound jumps out on you at just how much better the older tv is. As i’m not a fan of sound bars when i’ve had a set for years that has great sound i’m a little disappointed, after a few minutes the sound seems to get better, but initially every time you turn it on it sounds kind of flat?.Not sure if its our ears adjusting or it takes a few minutes for the sound enhancements to kick in. I’m not sure why lg can’t let you have a set with all the 4k goodness but not the premium sound, we almost went for the lower model as it has better sound but wanted the dolby vision + ultra luminance knowing we can add better sound later if we want but the picture your stuck with. Overall its much better, although i can’t figure out how to rewind live tv automatically now, the old set you just had a hdd plugged in and it would auto record the channel your on, now you seem to have to record manually?biggest gripe for me on the new set, the featured ad on the left on the home menu, even though you can easily ignore it. I wish there was a way to turn it off, overall its much better as a tv. Not only that it cost far less than our old one didscreen sharing from out windows phones is also a lot smoother now, but we still get the same message on continuum about the tv not fully supporting the phone, appears to work fine though.

      1. Really happy with this tv and got it for a great price. Definitely a job for 2 people setting it up on the stand. Would recommend this tv – can’t comment on the sound as i’ve got my sound bar plugged directly into the tv. The remote is excellent and easy to setup, i use it to control the virgin tivo box as well which is useful. It could do with a play/pause button but not the end of the world.

    1. Purchased this tv locally for the same price. This tv is rgbw and will not produce hdr in movie quality, dark scenes are impossible to produce because there is extra white light in the sub pixels. I’ve found that because of the white light in the pixels this also must effect the luminance rating , so it’s not actually 500nits either. You need 1000 nits luminance to produce basic hdr and there are tvs that produce 2000 available. The tv is excellent as a general tv , the software and remote are the best i’ve ever used. I enjoy using the tv more than the inability to enjoy hdr on it. I think it’s a pity lg has tried to sell so much in a tv, when it’s not actually possible at this price point yet. It is actually a great television, but it’s purely marketing that has driven the hdr with it. I think they will have to forget about rgbw ips in the very near future. Don’t expect anything better from any other brands for this price at the moment, what you gain in picture quality you loose in ease of use and at the end of the day, nobody wants a cumbersome television.

    Lg 49uj750v 49 inch 4k ultra hd hdr smart led tv (2017 model)i have just bought the 49” model of this lg 4k tv after much research on 4k tv’s. It arrived undamaged and needed the help of my wife to assemble as i did not realise just how large this tv is. After assembly, i connected up the virgin tivo (standard) box, as i don’t have the tivo 6 yet, and connected a 4 year old blue ray player and fired the tv up. It was easy to set up and i just followed the on screen instructions. It first scanned the terrestrial dtv programs and stored them, and then i moved to the tivo box. I decided to use an ethernet cable for the super hub 2 router rather than wireless and had no trouble. The picture quality is astonishing when watching standard hd content, and 4k is unbelievable when watching a 4k netflix film. Even standard definition is upscaled to a reasonable picture and so far we have been over the moon with the quality of this tv. We noticed very intermittent audio dropout from the tivo box and hopefully when virgin send us a tivo 6 this will be improved, there is no audio drop-out when streaming from netflix via the tv app of watching tv programs such as bbc etc. Audio itself is again fantastic, music is a pleasure to listen to, and films have that surround sound quality to them.

      1. Great hdr, the wide colour gamut is great, built in wifi is a bonus, and the apps work very well. Having netflix and amazon buttons on the remote is a big plus. The downsides are dark stripes on the screen caused by edge lighting (not visible that often, mostly during horizontal pans), and having to use an ethernet cable to update the firmware. Dolby vision looks incredible.

    I received a phone call the day they were dispatched and again on the day of delivery to tell me they will come within a 2 hour window, thank you for the prompt and efficient service from martin dawes. As for the tv itself brilliant love it, a breeze to set up, done in 5 minutes max, even with the slight hassle that the tv doesn’t recognise my sonos sound bar this again was rectified with a bit of googling and sonos forums. The picture is excellent and the 4k is stunning what more can i ask for, bought a 2nd one for when i get an xbox one x then i can have 4k gaming as well.

      1. As usual excellent service from amazon. Tv gives very good functionality works well with other equipment menu very easy to use. However the picture just did not have the ambiance of my 5 year old samsung it was lacking in contrast and the colour was not correct despite adjusting various controls sadly waiting for it to be collected.
