LG TVs Have Good Reviews

LG is one of the better rated television brands according to average reviews from users and experts, and LG also has good reviews for its 4K and 8K TVs.

Nice Design

Two LG 55UF950 owners reckoned that this TV was a good design. Expert review site Pocket-Lint.com mentioned “Bold design, punchy colours”. Avforums.com mentioned in their LG 55UF950 review “The UF950V incorporates a striking design with an ultra-slim flat panel”.

Good Picture Quality

One customer who purchased it considered that it had good colour saturation.

Good High Def TV

One person who reviewed it reckoned that it was good at displaying high definition TV. Expert website Avforums.com wrote “The UF950 represents LG's flagship Ultra HD 4K LED LCD TV for 2015”.

3D Compatible

The 55UF950 is 3D compatible, which is unusual. Most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been on the market for more than a year are not 3D compatible.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 3D compatible TVs currently available including the Samsung UE48JS9000[plb_2817727_price] which is cheaper.

TVs which are 3D compatible that might be worth considering include the UE55JS8500[pl_2828885_price], or the UE55JS9000[pl_2824102_price] both from Samsung.
