Ushering in a new era in picture realism, the HDR-equipped LG 55UH661V makes TV more immersive than ever.

HDR - High Dynamic Range for superb contrast

Taking 4K UHD one stage further, the LG 55UH661V now boasts HDR (High Dynamic Range) compatibility. This extends the range of colours for enhanced realism. It also delivers brighter whites and darker blacks, helping to give this TV stunning levels of contrast.

4K Ultra HD TV - Ultimate Detail
With 4K UHD screen resolution, this 55 inch TV gives a stunning picture quality. The resolution is four times greater than the more conventional 1920 x 1080 Full HD TVs and it's a difference you can see clearly on the LG's generous 55" screen. Thanks to LG's 4K Resolution Upscaler, even standard FHD signals can be upscaled to near 4K clarity and detail - giving your Blu-rays a new lease of life.

The best smart interface is better than ever with webOS 3.0
Widely acclaimed as one of the best smart TV interfaces, LG's webOS 3.0 operating system is now better than ever. WebOS 3.0 uses superimposed icons, folders and side bars for clear and easy access to smart content without leaving the current screen image. New to webOS 3.0 is the ability for split screen viewing, letting you watch live TV and Blu-ray, for example, at the same time. Other new features include LG smart appliance control and access to the LG Music Player app playing through the TV's speaker system - even when it's turned off.

Freeview Play for catch-up TV
Freeview Play makes catch-up TV easy. Find programmes from BBC iPlayer, the ITV Hub, All4 and Demand 5 sitting alongside over 60TV Channels and up to 15 HD channels. Simply scroll back in your TV guide to watch shows you missed from the last 7 days. Just make sure your TV is connected to the internet and you're good to go.

New "Magic" tech
Linking in with the new webOS 3.0 system is a range of "Magic" features. These include Magic Zoom for screen magnification without loss of image quality. The Magic Mobile Connection lets you stream apps from your smartphone, straight to the TV, for seamless big screen entertainment.

Smart TV that includes all your favourite apps
The LG 55UH661V comes packed with useful apps that look great on the big screen. The BBC iPlayer, YouTube, Now TV, Demand 5 and Netflix are just some of the VOD (Video On Demand) services that come as standard with the LG. There's also easy access to music sites like Spotify and Napster plus social sites Facebook and Twitter.

DLNA and Wi-Fi make this TV part of your home network
DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatibility means the 55UH661V will seamlessly blend with your home network. With DLNA you can stream music or video from your laptop, PC or NAS drive. Thanks to built-in Wi-Fi, even connecting up is a breeze.

Much more than just a TV, the webOS 3.0 equipped LG 55UH661V is a complete hub for home entertainment.

Motion Processing
Manufacturers now use their own measurements so can not necessarily be compared between brands. Examples include LG - Motion Clarity Index (MCI), Samsung - Clear Motion rate (CMR), Philips - Perfect Motion Rate (PMR), Sony - Motionflow XR and Panasonic - BLS (Back Light Scanning). All these figures are twice or more than the traditional 100Hz/200Hz refresh rate figures. No abbreviation indicates traditional measurement. Plasmas generally use a 600Hz sub-field refresh rate.

LED Backlight
Does the TV have LED backlighting and what type is used? Full Array LED is generally agreed to be the highest spec and offers very even lighting and slim depth. Edge LED keeps a slim depth but relies on more processing for even lighting. Direct LED is the most basic and has the deepest depth. A simple 'Y' means the LED type is unspecified at present.

This allows for 'pockets' or 'zones' on the screen to be individually dimmed, giving greatly improved contrast between light and dark images.

LG 55UH661V is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV with superb picture for the price. We bought this primarily as a wall miunted large screen monitor to display presentations and videos from a PC, which it does very nicely with very sharp image quality. But it's also a lovely 4K Smart TV and the picture quality and moving image quality is much improved over the similar models of around 3-4 years earlier where picture pixelation was an issue in the past. The image quality shows nice balanced try to life colours, which really showed off the beautiful photos and video we had displayed. It's easy to use with a simple remote control. The ratings are all relative to the price of £649 that we paid. Obviously there are some beautiful TVs out there with much higher price tags, but when you mount this on a wall away from other more expensive machines in the showroom, it's seems a very good quality machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great step forward I wanted to upgrade my old led tv (2 years old) since I have just upgraded to sky Q. The picture is much better than my old model.Since it was last years model the price was great for all the features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolutely brilliant tv and the price, service and guarantee are 1st class! My 5 year old £1400 55" lg led tv started to fail and I was gutted but when I saw that richer sounds had a 55" lg tv with x4 times better picture, 6 years warranty and at only a third of the the price, I was gob-smacked! Thanks richer sounds, I'll definitely be buying all of my products from you in the future!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value for a 4K 55" TV The image is good and the menu is easy to use. I have compared it with an OLED and I don't think the difference is worth the cost based on what is currently available in 4K.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good Tv Very good Tv for the price, picture is great and the sound is good. Could do with a soundbar for music or films.
Date published: 2017-06-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from All being said, an excellent TV I bought this TV pretty much on a whim and I'm very glad I did. All being said and done it's an excellent set, with all of the connectivity options you could pretty much ever hope for. The image quality is excellent even when using 1080p sources straight out of the box & the built in speakers are reasonable (certainly not the worst I've ever heard), but lets face it; the chances are you've either got a sound bar or an AV receiver so it's a non-issue. webOS is nothing short of brilliant, with a couple of short-comings like no KODI app support from the LG app store and some (I'm assuming sponsored) ads when browsing through the installed apps. TLDR; Good TV, couple of niggles with the OS - get it bought!
Date published: 2017-06-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money and easy to use Picked up this TV from local store and was a breeze to setup. Managed to do it in less than 12 minutes from start to finish (Was a bet with my wife!) Picture quality is very good and the apps are very easy to use. Got it linked to Netflix and Amazon no problems and the picture with 4K on Netflix and Amazon HD Is superb. I know that there are better higher specd models out there with a bigger processor etc, but unless you are prepared to spend twice the price, the difference is very very minimal. Would highly recommend and for the money, hard to beat.
