    The 65UB980V is a staggeringly ambitious TV that for the most part we love. It's already tough to choose between the best 4K TVs this year, and we're afraid to say this LG is good enough to make your choice even more difficult!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best buy of the year best buy of the year and good quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 3D tv, 2nd to NONE! I'm writing this review, solely on the 3D function. I've always been a fan of the passive route for 3dtv since brands such as LG put them on the market. My only draw back was the debate of half the resolution 540p on each lense compared to an active 3d option on another brand with 1080p on each lense. The other draw back, knowing that 4k models were just around the corner. However, all of that has now changed. I am a happy and proud owner of the LG 65UB980V, after entensive research and reading reviews on 3d tvs, I promise you this is the best 3dtv yet. As one gentleman kindly put it ''If only 3d was this good in the first place'' honestly it is that good. I've read that the vast improvement for this could be due to the passive 3d being displayed on a 4k tv. Now I'm not saying the 3d is in 4k, but it is however at the very least 1080p on each lense, not only that, it's the first crosstalk free tv I've ever seen. The cons of this tv is literally the cons for all 4k tvs at the moment, the lack of 4k content, which I believe will be rolling out in numbers at the last quarter of 2015. If you are looking for the best 3d tv look no further, if you don't believe me check out what other well respected tech journalists have had to say about the 3d on this model. I've ran many top 3d movie titles on this tv and left my friends speechless on how good this tv performs. Also worth a mention is the brilliant sound this tv packs, very rare to find on slim model tvs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding I upgraded to this model from the LG CINEMA 3D SMART TV 55LM960V. The picture and the sound are outstanding. The picture quality from your existing sources will blow you away. It does an excellent job of up scaling the picture. The sound is deep and true and much better than my previous model. The WebOS is so much better than the previous interface, very intuitive and easy to navigate. The main reason why I chose this model over rivals was the passive 3D feature. Its very heavy though! It took three of us just to wall mount it, but looks great!
