LG 49UJ701V review
|Review: August 2017|
In a nutshell: The LG 49UJ701V is a good mid-range 49-inch TV. It boasts a premium design, a comprehensive Smart TV system including Freeview Play, Freesat HD, Netflix, Amazon and NOW TV, and good picture quality with wide viewing angles. It's an excellent choice of family TV.
Today's best buy: LG 49UJ701V from RLR distribution (£545.00)
LG UJ701V 49"
The 49-inch version of the LG UJ701V is a good money-saving option compared with the "Super-UHD" SJ801V. The design is very similar, and the only significant feature missing is the nano-cell technology, which means that the colours lose a little of their brilliance compared with the more expensive model. It's still a good choice of mid-range TV.
Our price target for this model is £700, and we hope that it will be selling for less than this in time for Black Friday 2017.

Can you tell me how wide the stand is as I want to know if it will fit my present tv stand?

Is this TV good for console gaming?

I’m primarily concerned about its input/display lag. It has 100 Hz, but will the missing nano-cell technology make it slow?

Had this particular model tv for a few months now you do need to read the inbuilt user guide and you do need to do software updates and app updates and then have a play with picture and sound settings once you get all this done I think like me you will have a brilliant smart tv. My broadband is not fast at around 4.6Mbps but I stream nowtv amazon prime in HD YouTube plays fine since latest software update no restarts as reported by other users live tv especially HD channels via either aerial free view or dish Freesat this tv has twin tuner are brilliant clear picture and rich sound no sound bar needed catch up tv works fine I have used power line adapters to connect to my hub all in all a really great tv does all what I want and I don’t like 2nd best great mid range tv thanks LG life is great.

Not sure what tv you reviewed but the viewing angles are awful.

What are you talking about?!? it's an IPS screen not a VA, so the viewing angles should be great. I have a uh630v VA screen TV and the angles are horrible, unless you are sitting right in front of the screen...

Hi David, please expand, I was expecting good viewing angles too - the main reason I was about to buy this TV... thanks.
