Rated 2 out of 5 by starmonche 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...

Rated 4 out of 5 by sammydpdx01 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frishman 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ARED Built with features for the future
if you plan to mount this tv on the wall with a fixed mount, be sure not to go any higher than 5 feet doing so will result in a horrible 3d viewing i recommend a mount that has some sort to tilting for optimal 3d viewing. the 3rd hmdi port is in a class of its own later this year 2015 4k 3d @60 hz blu ray player will be where this port really shines. i find it strange that spotify is giving a promotional for 6 months of free serivce but lg at the moment dont have the app in the store. its a beautiful tv colors are bright video games are excellent it truly delivers excellence. the only thing this tv is missing is a built in camera. lg is consistently updating the firmware adding more features. if your a pc gamer its perfect for that 4096x2160.
