12 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Good

This TV received a rating of 80% from expert review site Cnetfrance.fr.

Running Costs Are Very Low

This television has an energy efficiency rating of A+. The average 5 year running cost of the 49UH668 is only £94 based on average energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the most economic to run 4K and 8K TVs that came out in the last 12 months.

LG Has Good TV Reviews

4K and 8K TVs manufactured by LG have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all TVs (not just 4K and 8K TVs) and found that LG also has good reviews across its entire range.

Good High Def TV

Two LG 49UH668 reviewers who reviewed it agreed that it was good at displaying high definition TV. A few weeks ago S. D. Southam mentioned “And I chose this model because it is described as a ULTRA HD 4K TV and because it had all the connections” in their review of the LG 49UH668 and scored the product 80 out of 100. S. D. Southam also mentioned “The TV cannot possibly display Ultra High Definition 4K picture quality”.

Good Remote Control

A few people who reviewed the product agreed that it had a good remote control. In December S. D. Southam wrote on Amazon “I also successfully set up the Magic Remote, so I could change channels on my Tivo box using the LG remote” in their review.

Good Connectivity

One LG 49UH668 reviewer who bought it concluded that it was wifi compatible.

Good Sound Quality

One person who reviewed it reckoned that it had good sound quality. In December this year S. D. Southam gave it a rating of 4 stars and mentioned “Ultra surround sound 2 x 10watt channels” in their review of the LG 49UH668.

Easy to Use

One person considered that it was easy to use. S. D. Southam wrote this year “WiFi connection easily enough, using the remote control” in their review of this TV and rated the product 4 stars.

Good Picture Quality

One LG 49UH668 owner who purchased this TV considered that it had good picture quality.

Supports Smart TV

Like most of the other recently released 4K and 8K TVs, the 49UH668 supports smart TV.

We think you might also be interested in alternative televisions which also support smart TV including the 55UH615[pl_3414076_price], or the 55UH650[pl_3355973_price] both from LG or the Sony KD43XD8305[plb_3823587_price].

Has a Wi-Fi

has a wi-Fi

The LG 49UH668 has a wi-Fi, as do most of the other new 4K and 8K TVs.

We compared all the other TVs which also have a wi-Fi to this TV and we think the 55UH615[pl_3414076_price], or the 55UH650[pl_3355973_price] both from LG or the Sony KD43XD8305[plb_3823587_price] is also worth considering.

Very Low Annual Energy Consumption

Latest comparable spec TVs have annual energy consumptions of between 59kWh and 420kWh. The 49UH668 has a quite low annual energy consumption (only 83 kilowatt hours) compared to most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 49UH668.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Poor Product Quality

One LG 49UH668 reviewer reckoned that the product was not good quality. S. D. Southam mentioned “I was very disappointed in the picture quality! I spent an hour or more trying to adjust the Picture Modes” in their review of this TV.

Not 3D

The 49UH668 is not 3D, although it is worth noting that most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that were launched in the last 12 months are also not 3D.

If you would prefer a television that is 3D then you might also want to look at the LG 49UH850[plb_3348276_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The 49UH668 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other comparable spec TVs that were released in the last 12 months also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

Most new 4K and 8K TVs do not feature OLED technology. The LG 49UH668 is no exception to this as it too does not feature OLED technology.

Affiché à moins de 1000 euros, ce téléviseur LG 49UH668V Ultra HD avec traitement HDR Pro ne propose peut-être pas une immense taille d'écran, mais la qualité est au rendez-vous...

I decided to splash out on a new 49" TV to replace my old 32" Toshiba TV, hoping it would produce a better, clearer picture. And I chose this model because it is described as a ULTRA HD 4K TV and... Read more…
