What the experts say
Personal Reviews liked the LG 50Un81006Lb overall. Having 4K and HDR technology it produces a good picture - through the HDR tech is not the most advanced out there and the TV lacks local dimming technology which means the blacks are not as dark as some other models can produce. Design, sound and the inclusion of Alexa and Google Assistant into the operating system were all listed as plus points.

Cons: LG TVs do not have ALL 4

Pros: Looks great in the lounge, slimline with lots of apps
Cons: A bit difficult to get around the use of the apps if not had a smart tv before. We are still learning how to use it

Good TV but...
This LG tv replaced an older model which was damaged. Good sound and picture choices, but LG have deleted ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 catch up players. I have had to buy a set top box to receive these players, big omission for the UK market. Come on LG give us an update.

Pros: Image quality is excellent. Easy to set up. Stylish design. Good value.
Cons: The built in apps are great but some are missing. I bought a amazon fire stick to get the missing apps such as ITV Hub, My5 and All 4. I know previously models of this tv had these apps but I think for this tv model there was licensing issues due to Covid (hopefully to be resolved at some point)

Pros: The TV out of the box is easy to setup to begin watching TV, integrates well with all your accounts such as Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime etc etc. The remote can control all your devices such as Sky Q box and an LG bluray/dvd player.
Cons: The picture quality is not as good as is advertised. The issue with the TV comes from the black colour in the screen. You can fiddle and recalibrate all the settings to get the perfect picture but the black portion of the screen will pixelate and cause both annoyance that a 4K TV should not cause and also distraction while trying to watch and dimly lit film or programme, I expected more from a 4K TV!!

Pros: Good picture and sound
Cons: No catchup as stated in description of product, very disappointed
Upgraded from older 32”Sony in bedroom to this! Thought it would be too big as not a large room.but it’s great ! Picked lg on recommendation and taking to excellent sale staff about a lounge one too . Lack of catch up apps not a problem as have fire stick and digi box . Central stand was key for us to fit on chest of drawers. Fitted and up and running in 10 mins . Excellent friendly delivery service with progress well informed throughout the day . Picture quality is amazing and I keep it on standard picture with the sound on clear voice .
Great Picture and Amazing Features.
We had not intended to change our TV as the old LG was adequate, but this model supassed our expectations. The picture is really good and the features are easy to set up and use, The smart remote is a real bonus- don't heistate if you are thinking of upgrading, you won't regret it!
Really happy with products, delivery wasn't great
Really happy with the instore experience. Philip was really knowledgeable and helped us select things we were very happy with. I bought a bunch of things, but some weren't in stock. We were told that we could just have everything sent together to save costs and hassle. We ended up getting the things that we were told wern't in stock, first. Then a random delivery that we hadn't been told about, lastly another one we had been told about a week before.
Good picture and sound, just the right size
I bought this tv a few weeks ago and I’ve been extremely pleased with it.
I bought this last week and am very happy with it. Good advice from Richer Sounds helped me make my decision on the product.
I have had this TV for a week now and I am completely blown away. The picture is perfect the sound is outstanding. It was very easy to set up and took no time at all to sit back and just enjoy.
Great picture, good sound
This model was recommended by the salesman in store when I described my requirements and his suggestion was spot on. Very happy with the new TV.
Quality bit of kit as always from LG
Originally bought an LG tv with the legs on the edges. Quickly realised that it wasn’t going to fit on my tv cabinet. After a quick search found this style and fits perfectly as the legs are in the middle of the tv. As smart TVs go, it’s got everything you need. Netflix and Amazon video at a push of a button, saves me loading my PS4 up which is great when you have twins screaming for paw patrol! Looks great works great can’t fault it at all!
So far so good !
So far this is a great TV easy to set up works great with prime , sky and is awesome for gaming, The sound is really good not even connected my sound bar, But there are that many options you can set the picture and sound to anything you like really. Looking forward to the new Xbox comes out in the Autumn then the two together should make for incredible 4k gaming aswell.
Would never buy a tv anywhere else!
Once again amazing service and guarantee. Only need a short review as why would you consider anywhere else?....
LG 43" perfection.
Easy set-up and connectivity. Looks good and sounds good. Only complaint is that there is no User Manual Supplied and going on-line to find one has not worked. It's nice to have written material to hand rtather than try to locate it on-screen or on-line.
