Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV i bought this tv 2/14/2015 and it the best tv ive ever owned beautiful picture if you dont purchase LG your missing out

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Functions & Picture Quality I've had this tv over a year now and it's still awesome. I do wish there were an option for hdmi picture & picture, but I don't know if any tvs have that option. I'm happy every time I turn on my tv with my investment. The tv itself does run a bit hot sometimes though. Other than that there have been no issues and I think it will still work great for more years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase! I have had this TV for over a year now. So far it has been excellent. Love the great UHD Picture as well as the smart functions. Well worth the money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good TV but lack apps I have the 49" version of this TV. It's an ok TV in my opinion. The panel continually has LED bleed through on the right hand side of the panel which even resetting didn't fix. The TV also lacks several apps which you can easily get with LG's competitors. Namely, SlingTV, which was announced to be coming to WebOS TV's back in January 2015. We still don't have the Sling app and it's now January 2016. They did just add Google Play video though to the TV but sorely lacking in other areas with apps.I do not recommend this TV if you are every thinking about cutting cable. I'm in the process now of cutting cable and I'm going to have to purchase a Roku 4 in order to cut cable. Point of buying this TV was to avoid that but I didn't do my research first. Web browser is ok but kind of sluggish and there is no remote with a qwerty keyboard built in so browsing can be a little difficult. Panel is very clear though when displaying or playing 2160p content.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4K s Best 4K Ultra HD is the way to go. Pair that with the Web OS, can't go wrong. Apps update often to keep up with technology unlike my older smart TV's.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wireless Connection and WPS Options doesn't work I purchased this product after lot of math and comparison, basically pros and cons and finally I ended up unsatisfied. I've been managing with a wired internet connection for my Smart TV since day 1. The problem with this product is that, it doesn't connect to wireless network neither through wireless network nor through WPS. Once in a while it connects to wifi after a good amount of struggle! The moment you turn off your LG Smart TV things go back to sqaure one. Again you need to go to Network --> Settings --> WiFi Connection --> Connect to Internet. This has become a part and parcel of my experience with LG 55UB8500. Till date, I've tried to reach out to the customer support numerous times and none was able to solve the issue. Not sure how this needs to be rectified.

Does this TV support hdr and if which humidity connection has hdr

Asked by: Hjbkyb94
The LG 4K UHD Smart LED TV - 55" Class (54.6" Diag), Model # 55UB8500 is a 2014 model which was released well before the advent of HDR so it does not support HDR although all the 2016 Super UHD lineup of LG TVs will support both HDR10 and Dolby Vision. It is not clear what you mean by "which humidity connection has HDR" If you meant which HDMI connection has HDR, HDR is not dependent on the connection. HDR makes images with widely varying lights and darks look better on your screen. You'll need a TV that supports HDR and your source also needs to be HDR...^IFV

Asked by: Carlos B
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this television. To what devices is this TV connected? The description given suggests that a bad signal is being received from one of the external components. The problem is likely not with the screen, else the green VOLUME and CHANNEL bars would not display properly either. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for assistance.

I just bought the lg smart 65 4K uf8500 and I bought the hdmi cable the 4 k but the picture is coming not good still 1080p I need it to be at least 2016 p

Asked by: Ramiabu
We appreciate your interest in this television. The INFO BAR on the screen is designed to provide information relating to the incoming signal or broadcast. This information will have no bearing on the image displayed on the screen itself. As such, if your cable box only outputs a 1080p signal, then that is what will show in this INFO BAR. Regardless, the TV is automatically upconverting the signal to the full 4K resolution, in order to fill the screen. This is all normal operation. If there are additional questions about this matter,please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
