What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought TV about a month ago after reading all the great reviews, and reviews were spot on. Love the TV so far, and has lived up to the reviews in regards to value, picture quality amd sound.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome T.V. with Awesome Features I bought this T.V. 3 weeks ago and I am very impressed with it. I bought it to replace my Sony Bravia which lacked so many features that I feel a "Smart" T.V. should have. This L.G. T.V. has so many features that I am still learning how to use. The only issue that I have experience thus far is that the picture and sound are frequently out of sync and have to be adjusted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome TV for a GREAT price!!! Nice sleek design and has a beautiful picture with multiple settings for picture and sound. Has multiple connection options and I love the pointer on the remote. The LG app store gives more options for your veiwing pleasure in addition to your Amazon, Netflix or Hulu choices.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Customer Service was the Best !!! Bought the LG HD 55" TV a few weeks ago Sales associate, Seth,was very very helpful and patient Brought product home, set it all up and the screen was defected, I immediately called sales asso. and he had me bring it right back to the store to trade for a new one,( bad part was I live 50 miles away from the store so cost me extra gas $ and time) brought new one back home reset it all up ( was very leery after the first factory defect) but now have a magnificent TV for movies and football Only downfall was that the whole experience was very frustrating cost me extra time and $$ returning first defective TV to the store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wont control smart home, missing chromecast! I bought this tv about a month ago. The screen is really nice and bright, it sounds good. And it's great while I'm playing games. The only drawbacks that I've noticed have to do with the smart assistant interface/integration and limited customization in key features. -I can not connect the tv to my google home app, and because of this I can not issue commands to my other products using the built in assistant, this is an issue which many owners have complained about but when asked in the forums gets no reply from LG. -whenever I ask to play a specific show on netflix, instead of just playing the show it generates a list. I would be fine with that if I had asked to list shows but it creates a 2 step process when chromecast and my google speaker has already spoiled me to not needing my remote or phone when I know exactly what I wanna see. -there is no youtube music app... google owns youtube and this seems like an obvious addition that should be made soon - the tv has a built in music player which is useless to me personally as someone who pays for youtube as I stream music... I would like to see the music player have the capability added to select a source such as youtube music, spotify, or pandora. Instead of music stored in my local network. Since I dont download any music as I'm sure many of us dont anymore. But all those things are just extras... I bought a tv... and as a TV... GREAT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tv! This is the first LG TV that I have purchased. I purchased this tv to replace and old tv that was a different brand. I had to find a tv that would fit on my tv stand. I didn't want to buy a new stand and didn't want to mount it on the wall. This tv exceeded by expectations. Clear picture and the apps are easy to use. The remote is easy to use. I would definitely purchase and LG again.

Is there any way to delete the 3D effect on this tv? I absolutely hate it. Are there any LG models without the 3D effect?   

Asked by: Randy 1
The LG SK8000PUA 4K HDR Smart LED SUPER UHD TV w/ AI ThinQ® - 49" Class (48.5" Diag), Model # 49SK8000PUA does not support 3D. LG was one of the last two manufacturers to stop making 3D TVs in 2016 and none of our 2017 or 2018 models support 3D. Neither this TV nor any of our 2018 TV models have a "3D effect"...^IFV
