Other

Released Over a Year Ago

LG released the 49UH668 in April 2016.


Display

Good High Def TV

Two LG 49UH668 reviewers who reviewed the LG 49UH668 considered that it was good at displaying high definition TV. S. D. Southam rated the product 80 out of 100 and said in their review of the LG 49UH668 “And I chose this model because it is described as a ULTRA HD 4K TV and because it had all the connections”.

Good Picture Quality

One LG 49UH668 reviewer who purchased this TV reckoned that it had good picture quality. S. D. Southam said “The TV cannot possibly display Ultra High Definition 4K picture quality and can only display standard picture quality!” in their LG 49UH668 review and rated it 4 stars.

Not 3D

The 49UH668 is not 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other TVs of this spec and age are also not 3D.

If you would prefer a television that is 3D then you might want to consider the 55W809CBU (£449), or the KD-55X8509 (£429.99) both from Sony.

Very Slow High Frequency Rate

With a high frequency rate of only 100 hertz, the LG 49UH668 has one of the slower high frequency rates amongst similar spec TVs of this age. The slowest high frequency rate of 4K and 8K TVs that are a comparable age to this TV is 50Hz, the fastest is 3,000Hz, and the average high frequency rate is 520Hz.

We compared this TV to all the other 100Hz refresh rate TVs and we think cheaper TVs such as the 55UH668 (£489.99), and the 43UH668 (£499) both from LG or the Sony KD-55X8509 (£429.99) are also worth considering.

If you are looking for a TV with a faster high frequency rate then you might want to look at the Sony 55W809CBU (£449) (1,000Hz) which is also cheaper.

49 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 49 inches television.

We compared all the other 49" televisions to this television and we think the Philips 49PUS6501 (£489.97) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this TV display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the 50UH635 (£489) (50" and cheaper), or the 55UH661 (£525) (55" and cheaper) both from LG.
