LG's 84-inch Ultra HD TV hits UK today

Having debuted in January this year, the huge, gorgeous Ultra HD LG 84LM960V has finally gone on sale in the UK leaving us with just the small matter of 22,500 to contend with.

It's the first Ultra HD TV you can get in the UK reckons LG, having clearly forgotten about the Toshiba 55ZL2 which went on sale in the summer for the relatively reasonable price of 7,000.

Still, at 84-inches LG's Ultra HD TV is much larger and has managed to pip Sony's KD-84X9005 to the post (that's coming mid-December and 2,500 more expensive than LG's).

Ultra brilliant

The main benefit of Ultra HD is that it lets you watch passive 3D in full HD no pricey active glasses required and no loss of image quality.

Because it's basically 4x 1080p, upscaling is a cinch and your Blu-ray collection is going to look amazing on there the downside is that there's still no delivery method for native Ultra HD content.

Even when a delivery method for native Ultra HD content does finally emerge, there's no guarantee that these early-days TVs will be compatible. So it's a 22,500 gamble.

Whether you have the cash or not, you can still check out the mega-screen if you're in London it'll be on sale and on show at Harrods Knightsbridge, John Lewis Peter Jones Sloane Square and at The Gadget Show Live.

It will also be showing itself off at the Bullring in Birmingham (December 7 to 9) Westfield Stratford (December 13 to 15) and the Trafford Centre in Manchester (December 21 to 24). What a fun day out for all the family.

We have no doubt that you've all been exceptionally good this year, but have you been 22,500 good? We suspect Father Christmas will think not.Techradar

Makes me laugh when I see people with small lounges and massive panels.

Same annoyance when people spend a fortune on the biggest screen possible (without researching the panel) and then don't invest in a proper audio set-up and use their TV speakers pmsl  ::)

Sometimes HD still scares me. People that used to look really good in SD look downright awful in HD. Some people on Sky News look horrid. All the cracks around their eyes, the nasty rough looking skin and freckles etc

Imagine having 4k/8k tv with that supplied broadcast content in 5 - 8 years from now. You're going to see every little nasty detail as if you were examine yourself in the mirror while getting washed. Was funny a few weeks or so ago when James the chef said you used to be able to get away with it, now everyone have to trim their whiskers. Including the women.

I'm always amazed the amount of people one watches in HD and you can pickup their dandruff. And that isn't fully uncompressed 1080p.

I have noticed that on Sky News HD although the young women news presenters don't look so bad !

Yeah probably this amount of high definition is OTT

Also in films, on set, etc, if there are any irregularities, these would show up too.

We'll end up seeing any flakes or some form of particle in nose hair, corners of their eyes and so on. Retina display tv's :/

I'm already seeing greasy skin pours as it is.


The thing thats the most off putting at times is seeing people in immaculate suits with dandruff on their shoulders.

I can't say I've ever noticed that before !

I'll have to keep my eyes peeled in future.

Alan Hansen was terrible for it. Seen a number of politicians with it. Ugh Tessa Jowel last night on Sky News. Oh my god, vile. All the nasty wrinkles and bad skin on the neck. I had to change it. Ugh.

All these ugly imperfections on peoples noses. Warts or whatever. Ugh. Some people just shouldn't be in HD.
