LG 65UB980V

Originally reviewed by 01 October 2014

Best TV for 3D

Key features:
  • 65-inch 4K IPS screen
  • Passive 3D
  • Stunning sound quality
The LG 65UB980V is LG’s flagship TV for 2014, and it’s a corker. The 65-inch 4K display get you a truly immersive, super-detailed canvas for films and TV alike. However, it’s 3D that really raises the LG 65UB980v above the norm.

It offers the single best 3D picture we’ve seen, ever. The crosstalk issue of the last-generation model has been completely fixed, and images look so much brighter and richer than those of the competition. And we’re talking about the £2000-plus competition. It’s all down to the kind of 3D the LG 65UB980v uses: passive 3D.

It used to be considered the weaker of the 3D types, but the LG 65UB980v has shown us that perhaps it’s the way to go. If 3D had been this good from the early days, maybe we all wouldn’t have dismissed it as so many have.

Image quality with non-3D content is great, but the LG 65UB980v doesn’t quite manage to reach the black levels of some rivals because of its use of an IPS screen – great for viewing angles and colour, not always so hot for black level.

Price: £2,999
