Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding Picture So far, I am very happy with my new LG 4K TV. The picture is amazing and so far, haven't noticed anything negative. Initial set up was easy along with all the component hook ups and configurations. As far as the magic remote, I'm not completely sold on the idea. It works well but not any big improvement over a regular remote. Also, the onscreen pointer doesn't always stay where you point the remote, making selections a bit awkward. I like the onscreen menu and the fact that I can customize it, enabling fast selections of you commonly used apps. The smart TV functions work great with fast streaming and no issues. As far as LG's online store, a bit lacking with selections and needs to be expanded. The last issue was the silver stand. Why silver? I fixed that with black spray paint. Now the TV looks much better and even classier. February 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent TV and support. The TV has an excellent picture and functions are easy to use and set up. I highly recommend this product. February 20, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by I HATE the magic remote I bought this TV with the intention of using it as a monitor for my new gaming PC. I set everything up the way I liked and turned it on...and...HATRED. You canNOT initialize the TV past the welcome garbage and change inputs without using the magic remote. There's a navigation nub on the back of the TV but you're not allowed to progress into the menus until the remote has been initialized and you've answered NOYB questions like your zip code and other nonsense. I begrudgingly connected the magic remote and hate it even more because you really can't navigate with its buttons unless you hold the remote completely still since it acts like a Wii. (I bought a TV to use as a monitor and NOT A WII). I will never buy LG again. And that's too bad because the display is nice (other than the ridiculous fluff and stupid OS tacked onto it). The remote sucks and I hate it and you jerks made a pisspoor decision forcing it to be part of the setup. Not to mention that it's gotten itself disassociated several times for no reason. Just let me power on and switch inputs with a button. Shove your stupid remote...well you know... February 10, 2015

Rated 4 out of 5 by Good features and value We enjoy our UB8500 immensely. It has a ton of features and we like the Magic remote. It takes about 10 seconds for the TV to accept the radio signal from it when the TV is first started up, but then it works from anywhere in the house. Very nice. The set has lots of add-ons like NetFlix and Hulu, and more than we will ever use at the LG Store online. We use YouTube and NetFlix on this TV. It's browser is a little too slow for my taste. One of its HDMI inputs is optimized for sound, but they all work well. It is comparatively light weight for a set this size, but still feels hefty. The viewing angle is pretty wide and the color intensity is versatile, although the Cinema setting is too dark for me, even at night in a black room; we leave the set on Standard. The one drawback this set has is that is displays a little blur during fast action scenes. I didn't notice it for a few weeks, but then we watched our marathon Lord Of the Rings trilogy and it became quite noticeable during the battle scenes. This is disappointing. The motion engine should be faster for sure. But we bought it for a very competitive price locally in the SE Portland area, so for the price it is a good value. I recommend this TV. February 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Great features I liked this lg products and will recmond to my friends It's beautiful tv,colors are bright video game are exellents and truly deliver excellence. Lg is consistently updating the firmware adding more features. And the great price February 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A joy to have I've done thorough research before deciding which television I wanted to purchase. The main draw for me was the combination of Passive 3D with 4K, which takes away the significant drawback of split resolution with Passive 3D up to now. I must say following everything I read, I did not expect 4K to be noticeable, but it's astounded how different it is when compared to HD. It is starkly noticeable and a joy to watch, I've been watching simple nature films which I normally don't watch because of how beautiful it is. 3D is spectacular but you have to keep at level height to the TV, otherwise you will experience some ghosting. Other than that, I am absolutely pleased with this product. Great job, LG! January 20, 2015
