LG 65LA970W Ultra HD Smart 3D 65" television

"LG's first Ultra HD television is feature packed as we'd expect. It's got it all - wireless Smart, passive 3D with 4 pairs of glasses (plus

2 pairs of dual play glasses), Freeview HD and recording to USB. The only omission is the lack of Freesat HD."

The LG 65LA970W is LG's first foray into the world of Ultra HD. It's up against some tough competition from the likes of Sony and Samsung but holds its own. In fact, it does rather a good job thanks to the quality of the picture, a pleasant surprise indeed.

It's also got most of the features of the other sets plus a couple of extras. The ever useful LG Magic Remote control is included as standard, and with their exclusive deal with Sky you also get NOW TV out of the box. Freeview HD is also included and you can record straight to USB allowing you to use this set like a PVR. There isn't a Freesat HD tuner though, although a generic satellite tuner means you can pick up most of the channels albiet it slightly awkwardly.

Connecting to your router is easy with the built in wireless connection and you'll be able to access most of the online services you'd expect, although not all the catch up TV services are there (you'll need to look to Samsung for those). There's a built in camera so you can use Skype to make free video calls, and access to apps such as Twitter and Facebook is easy thanks to that magic remote.

Sound is very good for a flat screen TV - there's 4 speakers and a subwoofer built in, and the speakers slide in and out to give you better sound (put them away when not in use). If you do want to add a bigger system there's an optical out on the back so it's pretty easy to wire things up.

3D is standard, and you don't have to use it if you don't fancy it but with 4 pairs of glasses included it's worth a try. If four aren't enough, it's cheap to add extra glasses - with our current £10 package deal promotion it will cost you only £4 to add another 4 glasses - very cheap!

However it is the recent price drop that's really sparked interest in this set. With most people hunting out the high end Samsung sets, the LG price has tumbled and is down to an incredibly low price now. This has resulted in lots of people suddenly buying this set in droves. An excellent choice for the budget concious!
