What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Size! I bought this tv back in January 2018. I wanted a 4K tv that was 65" and had all the features I needed. This is a smart tv that's nice!. It will play almost any file on a USB drive or external hard drive. This tv has the 3.0 USB which is great if you want to put movies on an external hard drive. I do a lot of 4K recording and this tv handles it great. I use a GoPro and Mavic Pro for 4K. My files are on an USB 3.0 drive. I've watched may 4K movies and can say this tv is awesome for movies. I also have a Xbox One S I've used and the HDR is nice. I just recently upgraded to the Xbox One X and the picture and color is nice. This tv does support the Xbox Dolby Vision and all other 4K Xbox support. What makes this tv great is the size. I sit about 10 feet from the tv and it's great. It's not too small or too big. It's the perfect size for any place. It looks nice on the tv stand or wall mounted. It's worth it to set up your picture correctly. There's a bunch of adjustments you can do to get the tv just right where you want it. Xbox One X also has a nice tv adjustment guide to help setup the picture. It's a little advanced for setting up but if you have any tech savvy friends they should be able to help. Bottom line is this tv is great for the price and you won't be disappointed. The only issue I have is that I wish LG supported more media file types for being a smart tv. I can't play GoPro embedded data files MP4 with speed gauges and other gauges but on a Samsung smart tv I can play the same file with no issues. LG does update their tv's but haven't updated their media file playback support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture and sound. Very easy to set up and I am usually hopeless at putting things together. I have had several LG tvs so the settings and auto tuning was simple. I don't have cable or use streaming as I get 154 clear and free channels using an antenna so why would I pay! Picture is gorgeous and sound amazing. No sound bar needed. I got it on sale so very pleased with purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but Picture excellent, sound good, remote fair. If speaker was on front instead of bottom, sound would be better. No info button on remote. Previous channel button should be near channels. Magic Remote is a nuisance.

Will this tv play a video file saved as a .ISO image?

Asked by: george60
Hi George60. You cannot watch ISO videos directly on the LG SUPER UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV - 55" Class (54.6" Diag), Model # 55SJ8500 or any of our TVs via USB. To watch them on our TVs, you would need to first convert ISO files to a format that is fully compatible with our TVs...^IFV

How can I display content resolution information while using the Netflix app? For example, when using an HDMI input I can click the wheel mouse on the remote and an information box displays in the upper left corner. How can I see same info for Netflix?

Asked by: NewLGUser
The only way to see the resolution of what you are watching on Netflix would be prior to starting the content (HD, 4K, HDR, Dolby Vision, etc. would display on in the title information). There isn’t any way to get the resolution information once the content starts playing. ^AC

What size wall mount screws does it take?   M8x45 for example 

Asked by: Scott12346
The screws that will fit into the bolt holes in the back of the 65SJ8500 have a metric measurement which is given as M(?) x L(?) where "M" is the width of the screw and "L" is the length. The length will vary depending on the depth of the wall mount you're using. Typically, if the wall mount you're using is a VESA Compliant Wall Mount that supports the same A x B VESA Wall Mount Pattern for the TV, which is 300 x 300 (mm) for this TV, it should have come with the correct VESA Standard screws that would fit into the TV. The width of the screws that will fit into this TV is M6 (i.e. 6 mm). You can measure the length of the screws you currently have to determine what length you will need or you can check the instruction manual for your wall mount for that. Most hardware stores will carry these screws. ^CP

Can I use a Sonos sound system with this tv?

Asked by: Sabatier
HI Sabatier. Unfortunately, without knowledge of which SONOS sound system you are inquiring about, we cannot specifically say how you would connect it to the LG SUPER UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV - 55" Class (54.6" Diag), Model # 55SJ8500. However, the Sonos wireless sound system works by connecting one single speaker to your home network, then adding more Sonos units (up to a maximum of 32, dotted around the house) into the mix using a dedicated secure wireless mesh network known as Sonosnet. The SONOS Sound System comprises a number of devices such as Sonos Play:1, SONOS Play:3, Sonos Play:5, Sonos Playbar, Sonos Playbase and the Sonos Sub, all of which are designed to work with a variety of products from various manufacturers. We recommend that you contact SONOS for any inquiries about connecting it to your home network so that it can work in conjunction with the 55SJ8500...^IFV

The LG SUPER UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV - 65" Class (64.5" Diag), Model # 5SJ8500 does not have a built-in Dolby Atmos Decoder and it does not support Dolby Atmos. Regrettably, it cannot be upgraded to support Dolby Atmos through a firmware upgrade...^IFV
