LG 49UH850V review
|Review: May 2016|
Last updated September 2016
In a nutshell: The LG 49UH850V is a superb 4K TV with HDR capability, at a reasonable price. It's beautifully styled, with a smart silver and white finish. The TV uses a fast IPS display with bright colours and wide viewing angles. It's 3D compatible, and has an excellent 2.2 speaker audio system. LG's latest WebOS 3.0 Smart TV system includes apps for the BBC iPlayer, Demand 5, Netflix 4K and Amazon Instant Video. Connectivity is excellent, and includes Freeview HD and Freesat HD tuners. It's a great package!
The LG 49UH850V is the 49-inch version of the 55-inch LG UH850V UHD HDR TV we reviewed earlier. The price of the TV has fallen very significantly since its release in March 2016, and it's now a very good value product. Watch out for further cuts as Black Friday approaches!

It has a half-baked implementation that does not quite work.
