LG 55UB950V 4K TV review: webOS meets ultra-high definition


The LG UB950V brings a double dose of excitement, offering ultra-high definition (UHD) resolution, otherwise known as 4K, in addition to LG's webOS user interface. The large resolution is matched by large screen sizes, as the UB950V is available in 65-...

webOS interface is impressive, nice design, Magic Remote, plenty of connectivity, sensible price

Contrast and dimming problems lead to poor low-light scenes, 3D performance not great

LG 55UB950V review


LG's first 2014 4K TV also delivers webOS

LG 55UB950V 4K TV review


4K is mighty fine, but this LG's real superpower is its WebOS

WebOS is a work of genius Lovely to control Punchy colours

A truly superb interface held back just slightly by a performance that's simply very good

LG 55UB950V


LG's 4K and webOS TV has great bits and less great bits

UHD pictures look blisteringly sharp, Pictures are bright and colourful, webOS is a work of genius

Serious black level problems, Input lag is far too high for gaming, 3D crosstalk issues
