Rated 5 out of 5 by Al2008 Outstanding Features, Quality, Unbeatable Price
Most Notable Features: 3D (variable settings avail.), 4K picture quality, WIFI option, WebOS, Antenna TV program information availability, multiple HDMI inputs
Quality: I have to emphasize... the picture quality is AWESOME!!! At first there were 'lags' in some object's that were moving fast at certain scenes, but after going thru some adjustments and updates, I have not seen the 'lags' anymore. The sound is great, its not surround sound but the quality is decent (no echoing, pitch/ tone are balanced). Angle viewing is pretty decent (only min. changes in picture quality) - hence I opted for flat and not a curved screen. And based on comparison with other TV manufacturers, this TV has a higher overall quality than the others.
Price: Based on its quality and price ratio, this is one of the best that is out in the market. You may find some that are cheaper, but make sure it has the features that this TV has or at least the ones you're looking for.
Cons: Pertains to all Smart TV's -- the ability to download other TV/ Movie streaming apps, although this TV already has an array of the most popular ones like Amazon Prime, Hulu, Netflix, Youtube, etc. And no numbers on the remote (so if you're scanning Antenna TV channels, you have to scan thru each and everyone in your list in order to watch a particular one). And also with all the MANY features (based on my personal experience of switching from a SONY picture tube type to this) there is quite a learning curve in order to learn and use ALL the features - not really a complaint/ just a heads up.

Rated 4 out of 5 Great TV, But....
I bought on sale at a relatively good price for an entry level 4K.
Great sleek appearance. Excellent Smart TV features. Easy to set up wirelessly and simple to use.
Got rid of soap opera appearance but rented movie recently and I couldn't get rid of it for that showing.
Remote is like a bad wii controller and is very unstable. Downloaded remote iPad app. It's better, but is clearly not what it could be.
For sound I used the digital audio sync feature to a sound bar for some amazing effects.
Almost worth 5 stars but not quite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Russ 55" UB8500 UHD Smart TV 3D is amazing
Great picture, tons of features, easy set up. The price was fantastic as well. Never figured 3D on a TV would be worth paying even an extra $10 for, but this one was same price as one without 3D so I ended up getting it for free, now that Ive seen it, it was worth several hundred more just for the 3D alone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by redpooch great picture
This tv picture is so clear whatever you are watching is like watching in person with your own eyes. The sound is good compared to our last tv which sounded as if the sound was coming out of a tin can. The remote is somewhat hard to use, sometimes have to hold one hand with the other to be steady to get the pointer to the spot you want to go. Also I do not like having to go to tv settings to switch settings to the receiver for music listening then back to tv for regular tv. Haven't studied it more to see if there is a way around that, the instructions say the way I have it connected to the receiver with the 4k cable is the best. I still love the tv and would choose it over the others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by StS Good Features-Competitive Price
This product replaced another product made by a major manufacturer which failed after less than four years service. This LG television was recommended to me by an independent repair facility who said he would prefer this over my prior manfacturer's products. The unit was relatively easy to install and I could do so without the aid of outside help.
