Pictures absolutely awful. Any onscreen text is blurred and part split. Totally not a UHD 4K television. My lower rate Samsung is way 100% better than this LG television.

Purchased from Currys but just wanted to give this TV 5 stars. Brilliant picture quality and great SMART features. Makes Blu-rays look even better than I thought they could!
