Hexx will be pleased to know that Rtings.com has awarded the LG B8 Best 4K Television (in terms of value for money):
Best 4K TV 2018
The LG B8 is the best 4K TV that we have reviewed so far. It has the same excellent picture quality as the more expensive models LG C8 and LG E8. The B8 can display perfect blacks due to its emissive technology that allows it to switch off individual pixels. It has a wide color gamut that produces rich and vivid colors in HDR content. It has very good viewing angles and is suitable for rooms with wide seating arrangements. Motion handling is superb with an almost instantaneous response time that displays fast-moving content with very little blur. In older, low-fps content this might cause some stutter that can be easily fixed with the excellent motion interpolation feature. The input lag is low, and the TV is very responsive which is great if you are a gamer or want to use it as a PC monitor.
Unfortunately, just like all OLED TVs, the LG B8 runs the risk of temporary image retention and the risk of permanent burn-in. We do not expect most people to experience this.
Overall, the LG B8 is the best UHD TV we've tested and an excellent TV for almost any usage.
And for those feeling less flush or don’t have the room for 55”:
Best Mid-Range 4K TV 2018: Sony X900F
If the LG B8 is too expensive for you, the Sony X900F is the best 4K UHD TV in the mid-range category that we have reviewed. The X900F is a versatile TV that delivers great picture quality, with deep blacks, a wide color gamut, and excellent gradient handling. The response time is nearly as fast as the OLEDs, and motion looks crisp and smooth. It has great low input lag for gaming.
Unfortunately, it doesn't deliver the wide viewing angles found on the OLED LG B8, and it has worse uniformity. It is a lot brighter than the B8 but has slightly worse reflection handling.
Overall, it is a great mid-range 4k TV that should please most people.
If anyone has purchased Blue Planet 2 or Planet Earth 2 in 4K and find they don’t work properly in an Xbox One S or X, breath on the discs and give them a wipe with a soft cloth. There’s an invisible film on the discs from manufacturering that the Xbox lens struggles to penetrate.
Was only reminded when I sat down to watch one of the discs tonight and the picture broke up like a wonky TV signal and then caused the X to come to a complete standstill.
