LG 55UF770V review
|Review: September 2015|
Last updated October 2015
In a nutshell: The LG 55UF770V is one of the cheapest 55-inch UHD televisions in the shops in 2015, and that means that it can't be ignored. It's not the most refined TV we've seen this year, but for all-round family viewing it's a good option.
Today's best buy: LG 55UF770V from Electrical Experience (£849.99)
The 55UF770V is the same as the 55UF850V, except that it has different styling, no 3D capability and misses out on the Harman / Kardon sound system of the UF850V. It's £200 cheaper too, making it one of the cheapest 55-inch TVs you can buy.
The styling of the UF770V is quite bland compared with the UF880V. Instead of a real metal frame and stand, the UF770V is all plastic. The bezel surrounding the screen is very narrow however, and the whole TV is nice and slim. We're not that keen on the stand though, as it's so obviously plastic.
We'd make the same general comments about the UF770V as we did about the UF880V. The picture quality and audio aren't the best, although in certain circumstances they can be very good, especially for casual viewing. It's not really a recommended TV for movie connoisseurs or serious gamers though.

Hi are you going to review the uh770v? saw it at richer sound over the wekend and was told it is the best 49 inch under £1000 because of its dolby vision. just trying to get your thoughts especially when compared to the samsung 49ku6470.

Yes, we'll be reviewing the UH770 soon. It will have to be very good indeed to beat the KU6570/KU6400!
