LG 49SJ810V review

 Review: August 2017  

Rating: 5 stars

In a nutshell: The LG 49SJ810V is a flagship 49" TV with premium styling and good picture quality. The comprehensive Smart TV system includes Freeview Play, Freesat HD, Netflix and Amazon. Viewing angles are particularly wide, making this a good choice for a family TV. It's a good choice for gamers too.


LG 49SJ810V review

The LG 49SJ810V is the 49" version of the LG 55SJ810V we reviewed previously. See our detailed 55" LG SJ810V review for more information.

The SJ810V is a flagship 49" TV with premium styling and excellent picture quality from its 4K HDR screen. The display supports the HDR10, Dolby Vision and HLG standards for High Dynamic Range and uses nano-cell technology for a rich, full colour spectrum. The IPS screen is bright and has the advantage of wide viewing angles, although it can't match the deep blacks of Samsung's televisions such as the MU6400 or MU6470. The screen is at its best for daytime viewing or in a moderately-lit room. In a darkened room, the lack of contrast can become noticeable.

Gamers will appreciate the very low lag, and audiophiles will benefit from the Harman/Kardon speaker system, although this isn't the most powerful sound system available, with just 20W of total output.

The WebOS 3.5 Smart TV system gives you access to broadcast channels via Freeview or Freesat, and you can catch up with the BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4 or Demand 5, and stream content from Netflix, Amazon or YouTube.

All things considered, this is an excellent mid-range family TV. At the time of review the price is a fair £800, but we strongly suspect that this will creep lower as the Christmas and Black Friday deals approach.

Does the LG 49SJ810V TV have screen mirroring?

Asked by Steve Capp from UK on 2nd Dec 2017
If so, how do I find it?

Reply by G. from United Kingdom on 9th Dec 2017
Yes.There is screen mirroring.I was using it with Samsung s8+phone.Just activate screen mirroring on your phone and your tv will come up on your phone's available devices list.

Does the LG 49SJ810V have Netflix 4K as standard?

Asked by Craig Richards from United Kingdom on 1st Dec 2017
Asking as seen in technical spec on Currys website that it has Amazon 4K but states on Netflix HD.

Is there a difference between 49SJ810V and LG 49SJ800V?

Asked by Paul from UK on 25th Nov 2017
These two TV's look the same apart from one has 800V and the other 810V in the title. LLG's web site comparison shows no technical difference apart from the stand so I'm trying to find out if there is one. The 810V seems to be a Currys PC world Tv so is it the same but with a different stand sold only through them?

Reply by peter from N,I on 27th Nov 2017
Is the difference in 32bit and 64bit. Not sure but thought I read this somewhere.

Reply by A Johnson from United Kingdom on 1st Dec 2017
The only difference is the stand. 800v has 2 small feet wide apart. 810v has a centre stand.

Reply by Kyle N from United Kingdom on 5th Dec 2017
810v is a cheaper panel. 8 bits with FRC versus the full 10bit panel in the 800v.

Reply by Steve B from UK on 13th Dec 2017
According to LG they are the same panel only stand differs. They are both 8 bit with FRC, currently the only true 10bit panels LG do are their OLED ones.

Reply by Jonny C from MK on 26th Dec 2017
@Steve B: not true dude, both the LG SJ850 and 950 have true 10Bit panels.
