LG 55UF680V review
|Review: September 2015|
In a nutshell: With the 55UF680V, LG has cut the price of owning a 55-inch UHD TV to the bare minimum. The design and styling of this TV are nice, the Smart TV functionality is good, and the price is almost unbelievable. But picture quality and audio aren't as good as we'd ideally like.
The UF680V is two steps down from the UF850V, and is probably the lowest we would consider going in LG's UHD (4K) TV line-up for 2015.
The UF680V has a different design, with a narrow metal bezel around the screen and a two-legged plastic stand. The handy "magic" remote isn't included with the UF680V, and we understand that the processor is slower, so the Smart TV functions may be more sluggish to respond.
There's very little difference between this model and the UF770V, and the price is almost the same too.

I brought the LG 55UF680V TV in 2016, it was manifactured in late 2016 but I can't find out if it has HDR or not. Some people say yes it does, some say the LG HDMI ULTRA HD Deep Colour either is a version of HDR or it is what LG calls HDR.

Got this TVs a week ago and the bigger 60inch,
The 55 is outstanding but you need to calibrate the screen don't just leave it from opening the box. 4K is truly amazing and it shows how good and powerful these ultra HD sets are to cope with 2160 at 60fps, but then going back to sky and freeview you see how rubbish the guality is that we pay for, the upscaler will improve things to a degree but as we know sky HD is not true HD just 720p and its rubbish. Smart wise 2.0 is very good and the red bull tv and Eurosport tv I love as its all in 1080p
As said lg make excellent TVs and these are no different, but you need done knowledge how to set them up, and don't use 100% back light as you get light ghost bleed from the edges.
Just spent £1800 on 2 kg TVs and no regrets at all.

This TV has so much motion blur it will actually make you angry. But I have to say the cinema sound on this TV is fantastic but I still brought it back to the store.
