What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lg sj8500 Maybe my tv is defective. I read great reviews from the buyers. However my 5 year old tv has a better reception than lg 8500. I have tried all kinds of setting from the day i purchased. I wish i had returned it withing the 15 day window. I have the 2 year warranty from best buy. Can my tv be replaced with a lg TV ???

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worthless remote TV has a nice picture. The lady at customer support was nice. Magic remote AN-MR650A: TV and set top box use 2 power buttons. Can not get to set top box DVR, must use another remote. Voice function, requires multiple steps...not push to talk! The little pink cursor is distracting not helpful. It is like buying a new car without a steering wheel! I would not have bought this TV if I had known about the remote.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture quality It was time for an upgrade from 1080 and I am happy I did. 65SJ8500 Almost bought the OLED but had burnin worries . Maybe next Year. When I get a new one my wife gets the old one .With this I think she will be happy also.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from LG does not take care of their customers. My 2 year old daughter threw an empty 2 liter bottle in the air and hit this screen of this TV (that I received on Oct 7th 2017) at a glancing blow. The screen cracked with a star just over the size of a quarter. I was devastated. I just paid $1,600 for this TV 2 months ago and could not believe something as light weight of an empty plastic bottle could crack the screen. I am sorry but the screen must have been defective to have light weight item hit it and crack. If it was a WII remote or a match box car, I would not say a word but for something this light to glance the screen and break?? I called LG to report the breakage and of course was told that I was on my own but would have a supervisor call me back for a possible exception. That never happened either. If LG was a reputable company they would take care of their customer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great TV I bought the 55SJ8500 last month and am very satisfied with the tv itself. The only reason I give it four stars instead of five stars is because I would have liked to be able to control the tv via the ethernet connection. The picture quality is great, no picture lag during high speed action scenes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV The picture is so good, I do not now if I can watch anything on my 49 inch LG
Date published: 2017-12-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect 99% of this TV is amazing, UHD, HDR, HDR 10 are amazing, but Netflix's Dolby or maybe Dolby (VUDU Dolby makes its kind of fuzzy, but not as bad as Netflix) make the video appear super grainy (watch Frontier, then compare it to Punisher), similar to the LG V30 how it becomea grainy (also brown on the phone). Its fast smooth, sleek, beautiful. Please fix with an update.
Date published: 2017-12-03
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color adjustments I have had several brands of tvs but my last 3 TVs have all been loyalty to LG. But this one seems much tougher to get the picture quality that works across multiple platforms. i.e. Xbox. Directv. Blue ray. It’s only been a few days so I’m gonna keep trying to get it where I like it.

The TV produces no sound when it automatically turns on HDMI Deep Color when it senses 4K HDR content from a 4K Bluray player or Playstation 4 Pro. And I cannot manually turn off this setting. How do I resolve this issue?

Asked by: jccai
Please try turning OFF HDMI Deep Color: • Home > Settings > 3 Dot Icon > General > HDMI ULTRA HD Deep Color as your input signals may not support it. ^AC

What is the correct size bolt/screw to fit on the back for an existing wall mount?

Asked by: bms111
The metric width for the screws that will fit into the Wall Mount Holes in the back of the LG SUPER UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV w/ Nano Cell™ Display - 65" Class (64.5" Diag), Model # 65SJ8500 is given as M6 (i.e. 6 mm). The length will depend on the depth of your existing Wall Mount. If Your Wall Mount was a VESA Compliant Wall Mount, it should have come with the appropriately sized screws for mounting it that would have either have been the right length to fit properly, or they would have provided you with spacers so it would fit properly. You should have received an instructional manual with it that will list the included accessories that will give you the size of any included screws. You can also contact the manufacturer for your existing Wall Mount to find out what the appropriate length is for screws that can be used with their wall mount...^IFV
