Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Video Clarity and Color Great color and clarity...the navigation system is easy to use for accessing all the channels and apps (amazon, hulu, netflix, etc.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing color I thought that I had a fairly good HD TV until I decided to purchase the 55SJ8000. My hearing has declined and I got the urge to buy a larger screen, with better sound quality. I definitely found it in this tv. I read the reviews and narrowed it down to 3 different models, all LG. The salesman explained the differences in the models and recommended this one. Precious experience with LG brand has been excellent. The color is amazing. I also can hear a lot better. I love the magic remote too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great tv!!! I just bought this tv and I'm so glad I did. Picture is fantastic!! AND the Sound is Great too!!! No need for soundbar...unless you really like it loud. So many great features - apps, surf the web, mouselike use of the remote for on screen selects, etc, etc, This is the one to get!! Screen also is matte finish so it does a really good job of muting reflection of lights. Picture quality is TOP NOTCH!! Streaming or not - great!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love our new TV We are thrilled with this new product! The new TV is big & beautiful, performs like a charm and we are very happy with our choice of televisions.
Date published: 2018-02-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Television Overall! The picture quality and sound are amazing, you can really tell it's 4K. The included smart features are great and everything is very easy to connect and use. The Hulu app does seem to lag a bit despite a fast internet connection. This most likely has to do with Hulu and not the TV, since everything else works great. Overall I would certainly recommend this television!
