    Nice one! I like how neat and tidy everything is. The collectables sections is a nice touch. I have the same Ikea coffee table, but that’s where the similarities between our setups end lol.

    Shouldn't have picked up that TV, it's not real 4K, it has 2880x2160 resolution other 960 pixels are just white led's instead of RGB.

    Theres quiet an difference in picture quality compared to TV's with actual 4K resolution.

    Take a look at this article: http://*******/news/lthree-of-lgs-4...eal-for-consumers-uh6400-uh6100-uf6800-16649/

    Very hard to believe, but very easy to check. Thanks, will let you know.

    LG has admitted it themselves.

    I see that link isn't working on here, leave the spaces out: http:// 4k . com/news/lthree-of-lgs-4k-tvs-offer-pseudo-uhd-and-a-raw-deal-for-consumers-uh6400-uh6100-uf6800-16649/

    It's also mentioned on this specification page: http://www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/959c840

    You have to scroll down a bit, it says RGBW, 2880 RGB + 960 (W) (W stands for White LED's)

    As far as I know, RGBW stands for a pixel with 4 subpixels: R, G, B and W. Exactly like in the picture, just that the in last case (RGBW) the pixel is really a four subpixels group, not three as suggested by the yellow enclosures:
    [​IMG]
    Therefor, the expression "RGBW, 2880 RGB + 960 (W)" does not make much sense to me. It implies that 2880 are RGB pixels and 960 are white? That is not RGBW, but rather RGB plus some white pixels.

    P.S. That image is quite funny in the sense that it was suppose to show that somehow RGBW is weaker than RGB, by using those misleading yellow circle groupings in trying to suggest that white subpixels are useless. But all that it shows is that a RGBW panel has more subpixels then a RGB panel, therefor is a more complex technology which allows a higher number of possible colors per pixel.

    No they are using 4 sub pixels but counting full pixel as 3 pixels similar fudging to samsung with early galaxy phones and the shared green pixel.

    Assuming that is correct, then it should have been "RGBW, 2880 RGB + 320 (W)", since W is only a third from a regular pixel (3 subpixels that is).

    NO:

    The true width resolution of the LG panel is 2880 RGBW pixels. Not 3840 RGB pixels. 11520 is the number of sub pixels in a standard RGB panel. Now the reason it is expressed as 2880 RGB + 960 W is the W is represented as a full pixel worth of white. In the LG panel it is actually 2880 sub pixels of each color red, green, blue and white. A normal panel is 3840 sub pixels of red, green and blue. Again both add up to the magic number of 11520 sub pixels.

    Sharp tried something similar with adding a yellow sub pixel in but at 5760 sub-pixels (1440 RGB + 460 Y or 1440 sub-pixels of red, green, blue and yellow each) in a standard full HD screen the loss in sharpness overshadowed the bump in color.

    This is exactly why is missleading, 2880 RGB + 960W sounds like:
    RGBWWWRGBWWW
    RGBWWWRGBWWW
    which is really not the case. In reality is something like:
    RGBWRGBW
    BWRGBWRG

    And as I understand the reasoning for saying that this is not really 4K, the fact is that the ISO standard is not saying how to implement a 4K but only how a 4K should be recognized. It goes down to show correctly 3840 consecutive columns, no matter what technology is behind. If somebody will achieve this in the future by using only 100 vertical physical columns, it will be still called 4K. And saying that RGBW is not really a 4K panel is like saying that a BluRay 2160p video is not really 4K since the compression inevitably lead to some pixels being replaced with ones near them. If it looks like a 2160p than it is a 2160p.

    Problem is RGBW is not as clear as RGB. And your analogy at the end of your statement is not helping you. I and many other know that there is truly no real 4K bluray's out. All UHD bluray movies currently available are remastered from 2.5-3k digital masters at best. Even ones that were filmed using 4K or IMAX cameras the UHD disk is mastered from a compressed source. Not really sure when we will see true UHD bluray movies that are released from 4K+ masters but when they do I will finally buy a UHD player.

    The short of this is avoid low end LG TV's like the pleauge and maybe LG will stop using inferior technology to make their entry level panels.

    I tested it together with a Samsung 4K 2016 55", which we also have in the family, and I saw no differences at all with regards to sharpness, at least not from the couch. And since I like more the color reproduction of the LG and since I prefer it's WebOS 3.0 and the presence of the analog audio output, I will not sell it yet. Sorry! :)

    On 55" TV you can't tell the difference between FHD and UHD at distances greater than 7'. So yeah you probably won't notice a difference. But you bought what you thought was a 4K TV and now find out is a faux 4K panel. If it were me I would not be pleased. And any smart OS is better than Samsung's with the exception of Vizio's.
