    LG 139 cm (55") Smart Nano Super UHD TV With ThinQ

    I have the same model and it's a brilliant buy even at the regular price, IMO I've played mostly 2160p x265 HEVC 10-bit files (5-10Gb each), which are just fine. I suspect streaming 50Gb files over our 72mbps wifi might get iffy.

    LG UHD 49 - any good?

    Possibly, but after 3 android streaming devices and 2 smart devices not supporting either Netflix or Amazon Prime, the LG was a pleasure to use out of the box

    LG UHD 49 - any good?

    Hisense did not support the Amazon Prime app, when I checked a month ago. The LG worked flawlessly.

    LG UHD 49 - any good?

    There was about a 3k difference, but I'm happy with the purchase. I was keen for a more recent unit, and the SK8000 has been great so far. The quad-core is quick, and the smart features work very well. As mentioned, poring over Rtings reviews played a major role

    LG UHD 49 - any good?

    I looked at the UK6300 models recently and opted for the SK8000 model rather. Mostly for future-proofing with updates, since the image quality in 2 stores was indistinguishable for me (and equally decent).

    Amazon Prime app disappeared from Hisense TV

    I beg to differ. We've had the LG for more than a month, and have had updates without any issues. *touch wood*

    Amazon Prime app disappeared from Hisense TV

    So? My LG happily still has the app. Our old Samsung device worked for a week, then also dropped the app.
