Although it's not from LG's flagship range, the LG 55UH850V is still a seriously premium TV. You'll have few problems using this 55-inch 4K TV, but it needs top picture and sound quality, too, in order to become a Best Buy. Read on for the full lowdown...

It is not 'smart'. It is primitive, badly lacking in functionality, badly designed for ease of use, and is sluggish responding.

Sound quality is really amazing! Harman/ Kardon designed is perfect! Image quality also is very amazing if set appropriately! Value for money is just nice! There is no chance you can find better tv in this price range!

No bad points so far .

Good picture quality after calibration. Plenty of control over adjustment.

Local dimming is a bit frustrating to set up correctly. Takes time to calibrate for an accurate picture.
