LG LB570V: review of the best LG TV 2014 without 3D in UK

The LG LB570V is a Full HD 2014 TV. This model is one of the best LED TV without 3D that you can buy. The LG LB570V is a Smart TV that although the system does not include the new webOS, which is available in high-end models. The picture quality is good, but we found a lack of contrast in very dark images when the ambient light is low, the IPS panel. This model doesn't include Wi-Fi, which is not a problem if we have the TV near the router, if we need Wi-Fi can look for the model LG LB580V only changes the design and includes free Wi-Fi.

Our opinion (Verdict):
Our opinion about the LG LB570V is good, is a low-end model without 3D but with SmartTV. LG is known for making good TV, mid-low range, and this model is a good example. Our recommendation is to buy this TV if you want a good TV but without 3D, the other recommended option is the Samsung H5500. This TV does not have the best image quality but is correct, for a not too demanding user, perfect for watching the TV normally. SmartTV system works well and includes browser and applications.

Sony X8505B 4K: review of a cheap UHD

The Sony X8505B is a UHD (4K) model 2014. This television offers the 4K resolution at a really low price. It is the "low" range of Sony 4K TV 2014, which will reduce costs in other ways, and maintain the UltraHD resolution. This TV is not as good as the Sony X9005B, the image quality is lower in contrast and in Hz, with MotionFlow 200Hz. The Sony X8505B can cause some problems clouding with very dark scenes, but with bright images it offers an excelent images. The 3D is passive and it is worse than the other brands like Samsung or Panasonic, just like the SmartTV system that it is functional with the included Opera browser, but also worse than other systems. The audio is good but not great, the 20W of power is enough to watch television, but not to see movies with good sound quality. Connectivity is good, with HDMI, USB, Wi-Fi, MHL compatibility ...

Conclusion (verdict):
Our opinion about the Sony X8505B is not good. The best we can say about this TV is that Sony 4K is reasonably priced. Although light images have incredible quality, dark picture screen does not offer a good uniformity, Edge LED technology can produce clouding effects, but with a good configuration can mitigate this problem. The sound and SmartTV are good, but worse than other models comparably priced. Our recommendation is not to buy this TV but we can change our opinion if you want a 4K TV and you haven't the budget to buy an excellent model as Sony X9005B. We advise you to review other "cheap" 4K models like Samsung HU7500 or Philips PUS7809.
