Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT PURCHASE THIS SMART TV... My elderly widowed father bought this TV less then a year ago. Spent a small fortune for it. He lives in Wenatchee, WA. This expensive large screen Smart TV does not read mp4's I downloaded on 35 Gig USB stick that every other Smart TV in the country (AND IN THEIR STORE IN WENATCHEE, WA) reads! I took the USB Stick to the store in Wenatchee myself! Due to my fathers age, and living alone he does NOT have Internet and NOT interested in getting it as he is not comfortable with it (hence the USB mp4 downloads). I live quite a few hours from him and can not get there often. I just visited him to help resolve this issue. I even went to their store. Wasn't easy getting help, but when I did, later in phone conversation with technician it turns out there are no updates to resolve this issue for his TV. I do not even understand WHY it is even an issue of an update. He could have purchased any other Smart TV for ((much cheaper)) that would have met this criteria and any criteria his current purchase offers. Quick to sell to an elderly man...NOT quick to resolve issue without extra costs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent picture I bought this tv because it is 4k hdr and has 3d. All three are important to me especially the 3d since I own around 90 3d films. I played several 4k hdr films on this tv using a 4k blu-ray player and the picture is awesome. Very realistic. The 3d is also very good. A lot of depth. Sad to say LG has quit making 3d sets after this one. Not enough demand. This tv is also hdcp 2.2 compliant on all hdmi connections. This tv is worth the money. Also has Harmon Karden speakers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tv is great I bought this tv last year, works great! Some things that need improvement is the software . The 2017 tvs come with webos 3.5 instead of 3.0. It would be awesome if LG would update their tvs to new software. Some websites say to use a supported web browser & the recaptcha doesn't work. Wish I could use another web browser but I can't because LG's only come with webos. the lg store needs better apps !

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good when it worked for the first 6 months We received this LG 55UH8500 TV brand new in box October 2016. The manufacture date on TV says August 2016. One morning last month I turned on TV as usual and it was stuck on the LG LIFE IS GOOD screen. Remote could only control on and off. There was no warning, just working fine one day then not the next. We had a new motherboard replaced under warranty and during initial set up of repaired TV, we lost the display to a flickering gray and white screen. It was the complete opposite of the initial problem that was repaired (I have sound and remote functions but no display). I called the technicians today that just replaced motherboard and they immediately said LG sent them a corrupt motherboard and they will have to order another one (must of happened before). There seems to be a glitch LG knows about in this model yet they continue to sell it? I haven't had this TV 6 months so beware of things to come if you own the same model I own.

I bought a 65UH8500 tv. In the beginning, using the magic remote, the cable box and the tv would come on together and shut off together. Recently the tv will come on then ask me if I want the cable box to come on also. I did try to reset the connection.
