Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV We got this a week ago and are so happy with this TV, the color is amazing even when standing up close to set. Set up, going on the web is so easy. You can also use other controls to turn it on/off (set-top box controller, cell phone, etc.) or use the pointer and/or scroll with the wheel to select or search for things; this is one of the features we love. I was surprised how slim this TV was, not only does it fit nicely into our wall unit, it also give us more room to move it around. I do wish the stand swiveled but the TV is big enough for the room without this and has such a clear, beautiful picture its really not a big deal. It also has beautiful screen savers that come on when your set box is off! Just love our new LG smart TV!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV For A Great Price I bought this TV coming from an 3 year old LG 1080p. To say I was blown away was an understatement, I can say that this TV stands up to TVs costing $1k more than this one does. When we went to buy the TV we looked at everything in the store and I have always liked LG, so we focused on these after looking at the competition and realizing nobody comes close to what these offer. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this to anyone. Also is my first SmartTV and I wont go back after this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantasic Television! I got this tv last week and it's FANTASTIC!! We upgraded from a 42" and WOW what a change. This TV brings you right into it. It makes you feel like you're there. Setting up The Wi-fi was super simple. The scroll bar at the bottom of the home screen with all of the options is an easy way to move from task to task. We definitely recommend this Tv.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from #TheMostAdvancedTVEver The Down and Dirty The LG Super UHDTV 4K 55” TV is by far the most advanced and enjoyable TV I have ever worked with and had in my home. This statement doesn’t do it justice until you realize that I own an IT company that sets up information technology infrastructure (computers, monitors, AV systems, etc) for clients all across Texas and it’s adjoining states. About the only way for setup and use of a TV to be easier would be if the TV read my mind. #LGYouHaveDoneItAgain The Good From opening the box to viewing 4k content. The LG Super UHDTV 4K 55” is simple to setup and configure. The controller sports a new way of interacting with the TV. I was impressed with the intuitiveness and simplicity to navigate around the TV during setup. This TV had all the good services to easily connect to and begin watching content immediately. Image quality on 4K content exceeded my expectations. It was almost like being there. #Captivating #Seriously The thing that surprised me the most was the incredible sound that the TV produced. I customarily connect all TVs to external sound systems as I have never met one that doesn’t fall short of expectations. To me a truly immersive experience includes not only the image quality but also the sound quality. I have finally met a TV that has an out of the box immersive experience! And to top it off, the only thing I had to do was plug it in and connect it to my wifi. I didn’t need the extra cables to connect my sounds system and my third party TV companions (Apple TV, Amazon FireStick, etc). I also connected this TV to my 4K capable Macbook Pro and used it as a monitor. Truly amazing! #LGYouHadMeAtSetUp The Bad This wouldn’t be an honest review if there wasn’t at least one shortcoming, nothing is perfect . . . Getting it out of the box, this was the most difficult part of the entire process. #DontTouchTheScreen. I have worked with TVs where the packaging has built in handles to make it easier to grip and lift the device out of the box. The only other thing I can say is that the TV takes awhile to boot when turning it on. This can be a little frustrating, but for now it is completely worth the wait. #YoureWelcome

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pictue Quality I love ALMOST everything about this tv. Very easy to set up and use. The smart remote takes a little getting used to. The only issue I have is with my home theater and cable box. I cannot use my cable box remote to adjust volume. If anyone can tell me how to set this, I will gladly change my rating to 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing picture quality - exceeds expectations By far the most impressive TV we have ever owned. We have many other LG appliances and electronics that perform beautifully, and this TV meets and exceeds the high expectations that LG has established and continues to deliver in our home. The picture quality on this TV is unlike anything we've used. From kids animated shows, sports, DIY or drama, it feels like you are part of the action. Live TV is impressive, but BlueRay movies take the picture and experience to another level. The vivid colors, smooth transitions and sharp details are absolutely incredible. The controls and software are quite intuitive. First-time setup wizard was simple and helpful. The included remote and menus are easier to navigate than prior LG TVs we've had in the past. The Wifi connection was easy to establish and software updates are invisible happening in the background. The overall appearance is high-end as well. The thin edges allows full focus to be on the picture itself. The "hardware" essentially disappears when turned on and looks sleek and impressive when turned off. The tabletop base is strong and stable with an attractive brushed metal finish that complements the contemporary look and feel. The 55" screen allows for a great viewing experience, but the unit is still subtle and unobtrusive for its size. Extremely pleased with this TV and looking forward to spending time with our family for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW, Plain and simple im close to 40 now and this tv by far is the best Tv I have owned ever. Easy walk thru set up and once done everything is very simple to do on here. Now I know there are OLED tvs out there that are far better then mine is but for the price this is a steal plain and simple. I have not done much on here but for example Youtube Looks insanely great when watching 4k content and it will inform u if your watching something with HDR in it and theres a great difference when u add that to the picture. I have waited quite a long time for a tv like this and it was well worth the wait. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TO EVERYONE, If you are on a budget then get this dont waste money on an off brand get this one u will not be let done.

What does the power supply look like?  Does it plug straight into the back of TV and into outlet?  I am asking bc we need to mount this to a wall and the sony TV had a power adapter that was bigger than a brick. If possible, can you take a picture?

Asked by: Kimmie16
This TV has a permanently attached (to the TV - through a screwed on door) white 2 prong power cord.  There is no box, just a lightweight power cable.

What is the coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut?

Asked by: anquietas
Regrettably, we do not have any specifications for what the coverage of DCI-P3 color gamut the LG SUPER UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV w/ Nano Cell™ Display - 65" Class (64.5" Diag), Model # 65SJ8500 is. Currently, no TV can display all of the DCI P3 or Rec. 2020 colorspace. As a result, they have to either clip colors which lie outside of their capabilities or compress the colors to fit them into the display limitations (or some combination of these two) in a process called tone mapping. There is no standard for calibrating to these wider color spaces because there is no reference of what a display should do and how this tone mapping should be performed. There are some sites that are beginning to test how much of the DCI-P3 and the Rec.2020 color volume TVs can cover, but currently, we do not have any specifications on that...^IFV
