Rated 5 out of 5 by Ben Stunning Picture
As the words express it, stunning. Right out of the box, the clarity is unmatched. Love the remote and the "Smartness" of the TV. When I watched the first 3D movie I was blown away. Truly unblievable.........
Do not hesitate to own one of these.............

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve Superior Side Viewing Angle
After owning one of the first Plasmas over 10 years ago, I wanted to move to HDMI connections, but did not want to give up good viewing on the sides. After a lot of research and reading reviews, I found the 8500 was noted for a superior side viewing angle. Great picture, even in the day in a room with very large windows. All the other features just add to the value.

Has 3D but most likely never use it. Really do know why the put this stand on it, has feet that are at both ends of the unit so it requires a large TV stand or you must wall mount. The LG 47" I have has a base stand in the middle that is much nicer and it can move side to side, do not understand why LG went to this style. The 1080 47" LG I have had for 3 or 4 years now seem to have a nicer picture that this 4K. The 4K has a lot features over the older LG I own. I wish the remote would be more user friendly due to the lack of buttons it makes it harder to get to settings to adjust. The legs in the TV could be just a little higher so when you add a sound bar in front of the TV the sound bar would not be in the way of the screen and the remote sensor. The Internet browser is very basic and does not show your home page as you would see it on your computer. The Miracast function has a hard time to connect, it seems to connect and function fine but after many tries and time. I have tried to do adjustments to tune in the picture so it would look as good or nicer the my older LG 47 1080 but maybe I just haven't got it. I like the very thin frame around the screen that this 4K has. Make sure your have or get a good surge protector to protect from power surges that shorten the life of your TV. I have had good luck with my 47" 1080 LG and hope for the best with this new K4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BABJ Excellent 3D Television
I use my TV for the internet and watching movies and playing games with my Xbox and Playstation 4. The WebOS is great and work very well. The only downside to the TV is the remote but LG does have app for the IPad which works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CEKirby Best UHD 4K TV for features / cost...
I spent over a year researching 4K UHD TV's from all the vendors... I am a 30 year+ computer engineer. The features this LG 55" UB8500 provides are phenominal, especially at 25% to 50% less than other 55" UHD vendor products. The other brands or more expensive LG TV's with slightly "faster" screen responses are marginally better for significantly more money. This TV has excellent 3D, even when converting 2D to 3D (amazing in its own right!), and it handles fast action scenes in 3D well also. I even got my wife to agree that the 4K upscaling is amazing... She was satisfied with her much smaller TV previously... The menus are good and the smart remote is good even if it takes a bit of practice to get it to cooperate well. This is all great before we have a lot of UHD media to play! The HDMI HDCP 2.2 future proof built in is almost non-existent on more expensive competitors TV's... This will be critical with true UHD media in the coming months. Highly recomended!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by pota2 On the verge of greatness
Not 100% sure if content is delivered at full 4k but picture seems super sharp. Sometimes I can see shining studio lights reflected on broadcaster's hair . Some dvr episodes show motion blur. Some shows razor sharp , some shows not so much . Very fussy to be fully satisfied but this set is pretty darn good regardless of other bench tests from comparison sites.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mark Tallman A superlative experience
I cannot more strongly recommend our LG UHD TV.
We purchased our 55" UHD TV ~ two months ago. Our experience and enjoyment with this outstanding product has surpassed all expectations. My Wife could not see much difference between Standard Definition and HD on our 1080P TV. She sees a much greater picture that is obviously superior with our LG UHD.
Many "industry experts" bloviate about no UHD content that is a possible future. This is NOT TRUE. Netflix has UHD content in both movies and shows, such as House of Cards. The TV brings such content to life as if you are truly there. The improved sound of UHD even more greatly enhances the experience.
What's more, 1080P content such as VUDU upscales to much higher resolution. 1080i broadcasts also enhance.
The software combined with auto-download/install is amazing.
Words do not adequately convey my endorsement of LG UHD TV's.
