Amazing picture and Future Proof
24 Mar 2015 By Vaibhav Gupta On flipkart.com
Firstly I bought this from a retailer at 68k when flipkart was quoting 67k. I am a techie person so when i go for features I exploit them for sure.nNow I bought this TV after reading only positive reviews throughout the net across the globe. The European model is named UB820V(for youtube videos). I always thought that the image upscaling features was a gimmick and marketing strategy, but it was only when i took some 720p and 1080p movies in a pen drive to test and i was speechless by the picture quality that turned out to be compared to my full hd monitor and Tv. Simply superb. nnThe best part being hvec coder and this tv plays almost anything. I played a 2gb print in another Tv and audio wasn't supported, but no such problem with this model.Also it could read an 8gig movie in the blink of an eye. The magic remote is easy to use and this TV has tones of features (very imp intel WIDI for sharing your laptop screen over wifi). i love wirelessly connecting my phone to show pictures taken to my family.nnnUnlike some of the comments here this TV can display 4k at 60hz, as it has got special HDMI ports (please read manual). Also i think it has got a USB3 port but i couldn't test as i lost my cable but loading of data was pretty quick.nthe black levels are good and the sound is filling as well. Looks wise this a very slim model with no physical bezel only some tiny black border inside screen. great brightness levels.nnAlso the magic remote is a universal remote you just have to set it up for your device, can even control DTH however i got videocon HD comes with RF remote so my DTH doesn't read IR signals, also sadly after i UPDATED the latest firmware the options of tat sky, videocon etc from universal remote setup vanished.nnnIf you want to use the recording feature you need to connect your DTH through RCA cables, why pay DTH companies for recording feature, connect an external HDD and record using your TV and enjoy.nTo conclude I went at least 15k over my budget for this model but it was worth every penny and would recommend with a 9/10 rating. I'll add one point when LG introduces latest WebOS to this Tv.

Amazing TV and picture clarity.
25 Feb 2015 By Varun Singh On flipkart.com
The TV picture clarity is beyond compare, it upscale my HD feed to UHD which improves the picture quality more. the difference is not visible in normal SD connection, so an HD connection (or the new TATA sky 4k) connection is a must have to enjoy this TV. nnPros - n1. Ultra clear picture clarity with IPS paneln2. USB plays almost everything and supports even 2TB HDDn3. Miracast and Intel WiDi allow to connect Laptops wirelessly. n4. Magic remote is like nintendo wii married to LG TV. and the remote can be configured to control your DTH so no two separate remote required. n5. TruMotion makes the movie watching experience smooth (though i dont prefer trumotion on regular shows... thats just me, the feature is amazing) nCons - nI am yet to find a con which makes this TV a deal breaker but i will nitpick a few. nn1. Sound quality is amazing and clarity is brilliant, but the speakers are not ultra loud. they are loud, not extremely loud. (the sound volume varies from input to input) n2. Price - 68K for a TV is pushing it and there is an LG TV (42LB5820) will all the same feature with an FHD panel for 49K. so basically you pay 19K extra for 4K and you get the magic remote free (worth 5k in the market) but, another way of looking at it is that TV's are long term purchase and you are not going to buy one for another 6-7 years so its worth the extra 19k to be future proof. (better than buying a 30 - 40K phone every 2 years) n3. I have had issues with screen mirroring on my note 3, works well for all other devices but my note 3 keeps giving hardware error. (my research tells me that its an issue with the exynos processor on samsung devices and usually requires phone reset) still a con as i cannot screen mirror, but casting video to the tv from my note 3 works. nnnAll those thing that smart tv get oudated as android tv are coming along, all you need is a good panel (which this TV has) and by an android TV box and connect to this TV. nnIn a nut-shell - I had initially ordered 42LB5820 but my decision making told me i had to be future proof and weather you like it or not or you say there is no difference between FHD and 4k from long distance, the industry is moving towards 4K and this is one of the cheapest 4K TVs in the market. So i cancelled that and ordered this one. This TV gets full rating from my end and i have no regrets in paying the extra 18K for a 4K panel, after all, TV is all about the screen.
