What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FOOTBALL IS THAT MUCH BETTER Bought this specifically for Football season & am so happy that we did. Games are that much more enjoyable on a picture perfect large screen. Couldn't be more pleased with the features of our new TV and the ease of navigating it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I GOT LUCKY I went into the store ready to purchase two Samsung 8 Series 55" that I had seen on display, and then went home and researched. But when I walked in, the Samsungs were gone. I found the department manager to be knowledgable, and she sensed my disappointment, and asked if I had looked at the LG SUPER UHD TV 4K, new for 2017. I told her that I had not considered LG. I asked her for the top-level specs, and I was pleased with what I saw. I am not shy about LG's, although I have never owned one. I was very interested in this new model, based upon the new "Nano Cell Display", the 120HZ refresh rate, local dimming, etc. It sounded like quite a nice package, including webOS 3.5, and the Magic Remote. I didn't know anything about the Harman Kardon sound system with "Ultra Surround", and thought that I would need to purchase a sound bar anyway. I asked the department manager how many of these she had on hand, and she pointed to the two (in their boxes) and said - "That's it". I was in the market for two, so I said "SOLD". I hired professionals to install them, and discovered that some of my older peripherals would not easily hook up to the new LG's. Admittedly, Wii, VCR, older DVD players require more RCA inputs than these new TVs have, and if my other stuff was more modern - with HDMI hookups, it wouldn't be an issue. But the installer said that he would return in a few days with some sort of switch or connector that will let me hook up all the older stuff. I may be the only person remaining on the planet with these issues. The LG worked right out of the box, and the installer downloaded the updates once connected to my wireless network. I love the picture. Great colors, and sharp, sharp detail. I watch baseball every day, and the detail, especially when they show slow-motion replays is spectacular. Not everyone gets excited about seeing grains of infield dirt suspended above a slide into 2nd base, but I do. I will not have to purchase a sound bar. The sound from this set is quite good. I haven't watched movies yet, so my comments do not apply to movies. I would add that the appearance is very pleasing. A thin case, thin frame - sort of pewter in appearance. I stylish stand that appears to be "designed" rather than just made to be functional. This review covers my initial impressions only, as it was just installed yesterday, but I am very pleased so far. I will update when I have had more experience, but since this TV is so new, I thought it important to get some reviews flowing.

Is this TV dual voltage e.g. does not require a converter to use in Europe?

Asked by: Monthbeer
The LG SUPER UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV w/ Nano Cell™ Display - 65" Class (64.5" Diag), Model # 65SJ8000 is a dual voltage/frequency TV so a converter is not required, however, it will not work in Germany or in Europe. The voltage is not the issue, but since this TV is designed for the U.S. market, the plug it uses is a Type C plug which is 2 straight blades, not grounded and 15 Amps. This type of plug is mainly used in the USA, Canada, Mexico & Japan. In Germany, the type of plugs used are Type C and Type F. Type C plugs are two round pins, not grounded, 2.5 A and commonly used in Europe, South America & Asia. Type F plugs are grounded, have two round pins, 16 A and are used almost everywhere in Europe & Russia, except for the UK & Ireland. Then you also have the issue of tuner compatibility. Up until the late 2010s, there were three main analog television systems in use around the world: NTSC, PAL, and SECAM. Now, in digital television (DTV), there are four main systems in use around the world: ATSC, DVB, ISDB and DTMB. This TV has three built-in tuners: an ATSC, NTSC and QAM tuner. Germany is still partly using the DVB-T MPEG-2 standard for SD transmissions and transitioned to the DVB-T2 standard in 2016 and the tuners in this TV are not compatible with either standard...^IFV

Asked by: Laredo

Input lag is not an official TV specifications, however, there are online sites who use either the Leo Bodnar Lag Tester or the cloned digital stopwatch/ high-speed camera method to test for input lag and publish the results online on their sites. You will be able to find those with a Google search...^IFV
