Rated 5 out of 5 by Now this is a Smart TV. This TV has everything you could want. Top specs and it looks really good. Smart TV, 4k, 3d, voice controlled just to name a few. Friends who came over couldn't believe the picture quality. It's the quality you see at Best buy. No regrets or remorse at all with our purchase. Great job Lg. July 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it The picture is so clear, the edge is so thin and all my friends said wows. I love the 3D feature too with blue-ray. I wish I had bought a bigger (say, 65") one though. August 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this HDTV Went to buy another brand of hdtv... After seeing this one it beat all other hdtv's.... Had all the features that I needed. The picture was perfect.. August 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a great television For the price and quality I think this stands right next to Samsungs upper class televisions. I am impressed with the picture quality. Also I play a lot of ps3 and ps4 games this has helped my gaming immensely. The perfect picture and clear images has made playing games a lot more fun. I really enjoy all the features this television has to offer. June 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful Product This tv is one of my favorites I have ever owned. The built in calibration give me the best picture I have ever seen. The 4k clarity is amazing. A bonus with this tv is the Web OS features. Easy to use. This has to be one of the best smart TVS on the market. Flawless connectivity. One of my favorite features is the multiple USB ports. Plugged a 500gb hard drive for media streaming and works awesome. Thank you LG for a great product. August 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Experience We went shopping to replace our 46 inch TV with a new 55 inch Ultra HD version. We looked at all the name brand TV's and found the picture quality of the LG to be at least as good as the top 2 brands and and the features were superior than all, including 3D and magic remote. The best price was icing on the cake. Would highly recommend this TV. July 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 The Ultimate. Color was beatiful in the store, and at Home. This the TV is BRILLANT, color, features and the set up. May 24, 2015

Most TV's say that they are 60hz, 120hz, or 240hz which refers to the refresh rate that eliminates "motion blur". I would expect this TV to be 240hz or greater but I don't see that listed anywhere. This is of course referring to the LG 49UB8500 model.

Yes. I owned a LG HD 55" when they first came out several years ago and loved it. But unfortunately I lost it. I said when I replaced it I would get the latest technology and I invested in the 4K Ultra HD Smart TV. I could not be happier

Answer: 
Each HDMI port has different features, so there is only 1 that is full 2.0, but check the manual, it lists all the features of each port. Eventually there may be uses for all the features, currently all my devices (TiVo Roamio, AppleTV, Roku, iPad) are generic HDMI, for high quality I use the built in apps or the many USB ports. But some day I will want to use the HDMI 2.0 input and this is one of the few TVs that have that yet.
