What People Are Saying

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by best for the money Has been a great purchase works and looks great wish it had some more apps like hbo or shotime but 4k Netflix is awesome August 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great 4K Smart TV I wanted a 4K TV but was very skeptical of "Smart TVs". I am a software developer and have been disappointed by similar "smart devices" in the past. When I saw LG was now using webOS, I read many reviews and went to the store for a demo. I was very pleased with what I saw, and have since purchased. I've had the TV about a month, and everything has been very smooth, from initial setup, configuration, and use. Works great with all my devices - HD cable, PS4, WiiU, AppleTV. The included apps are nice, though I am looking forward to more 4K content. The Netflix app included supports 4K and there is more content every month. Biggest improvements I'd like to see are - 4K youtube support, more 4K apps, and better support for video off of USB devices as it's a little cumbersome today. August 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by OUTSTANDING PICTURE QUALITY! This is an incredible set. The quality of just regular HD television programs is amazing. I really didn't believe it would be that different from my old HD set but boy was I wrong! And it does everything well. Although it took me a little bit to figure out how to connect to different things (the cable box connect takes some working around), the connections to Netfilx and Amazon and others are amazing. AND, the 3D quality and realism is so much better than I dreamed of that we just continue to be amazed. The 3D seems even better than in the movie theatre, which I never expected. And, our grandkids use it for various xbox games for which they and our son claim is amazing also in its clarity and sharpness. So, in every way, an amazing set. (Haven't had a chance to check out 4k yet but I'm sure it will be great too considering how great the blu-ray movies are) July 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 4K This is the best TV i have ever owned the 4K is amazing and so is the 3D easy to use and easy to set up the app's are awesome there are a lot of app's to use. July 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing TV I bought this TV for PC gaming cause I wanted to play at higher resolutions on a bigger screen and this TV delivers. 1440p 1600p and 2160p at 60fps are all available for PC gaming. The SmartTV features are all there any app you can think of is there and they work great. I love the magic remote it's very responsive and lightweight. The 2D-3D conversion is great and so is the 3D it uses passive 3D which is the same 3D used at your local movie theater. Blu-ray movies look amazing this TV will upscale your 1080p movies to 4k and it's great. This TV does have HDMI 2.0 and HEVC which supports 4K streaming from Netflix etc. This is a great TV with great value this is a MUST BUY July 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by GOOD TV Grate picture , easy to use & set up . Only one problem speekers no good , they need to be in front July 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by LG 49UB8500, is an excellent buy! We have had this TV for two weeks now and we have no complaints about this unit. Out of the box the picture was dark, only because it was on a default energy saving mode, but after correcting that we realized it has a beautiful picture and offers a lot of bang for the buck so to speak. Here are the Pros and Cons thus far: Pros: 4K and 3D with a 1,200pt rating True 4K at a low entry point pricing All of the basic apps that you can think of; Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, YouTube, etc... Easy to use TV remote Passive 3D technology Cons: No Flash supported content or use of Flash when on the Web Sound could use a deeper Bass tones and Mids. During setup there is an easy to follow start-up wizard that walks you through all of the settings and with setting up your set-top box, WiFi, and any inputs. Make sure to take it off of Energy Saving Mode in order to get a brighter picture, and set the TruMotion to your liking. June 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is great! Just missing one small tool Small detail: There should be a way to bring up the current bit rate and video resolution status while streaming online content. (ex: Netflix or YouTube) This would ensure your watching true 4K content as well as ensuring your internet connection can keep up. June 26, 2014
