Rated 4 out of 5 by from Over joyed I think this is great choice for men who love there man cave. I bought this tv about a month ago. Only problem my wife & kid now watch tv on it more than I do.lol! They claim to not watch tv much. I beg to differ.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not so good Cons - On the second day of viewing, the display developed a vertical line of blown out pixels (about 11" from left side) from top to bottom. The remote control is kind of finicky with the cursor thing... a cool idea but seems to be a bit buggy yet. Pros - Very nice chassis design & finish. The picture itself was quite nice, once the settings were adjusted (to my liking). I suppose I would recommend this TV, but prepare yourself for some potential frustration if you have to replace it... myself, I will try another brand when I return it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this tv We bought this tv to replace a 42" plasma. The plasma still works great, had it for 10 years. We just wanted a bigger screen. This tv was an excellent choice. I have no problems with it at all. I do wish the volume was better. Sometimes I have to turn it up in the 50 range before we can hear it well. Other than that I would recommend it.

I already own an LG tv with standard remote. I know the 55sk8000 uses a magic remote and in some reviews a few people don`t like some of the features. Is it possible to use a standard remote to operate it ? If so, which model number ?

Asked by: CAL8454
Any standard LG Remote Control should be able to control some of the functions on the LG SK8000PUA 4K HDR Smart LED SUPER UHD TV w/ AI ThinQ® - 55" Class (54.6" Diag), Model # 55SK8000PUA...^IFV

Does the browser update periodically? I have read multiple customer reviews complaining that the browser stops working after a while because it fails to update.

Asked by: BHFL
The browser for the LG SK8000PUA 4K HDR Smart LED SUPER UHD TV w/ AI ThinQ® - 55" Class (54.6" Diag), Model # 55SK8000PUA does not update periodically and we do not have any issues with the browser stopping because it failed to update. Adobe stopped supporting Flash on TVs so when you try to play video that requires a flash plugin, it will not play, our browsers use HTML5. YouTube, which used the platform as the standard way to play its videos, has dumped Flash in favor of HTML5 for its default web player. The site will now use HTML5 video as standard in Chrome, Internet Explorer 11, Safari 8, and in beta versions of Firefox...^IFV

What is the difference between PUA and AUA? does SK8000PUA comes with a7 processor and trumotion 120? (I was told that 49" is different from other larger size that 49" doesn't not come with truMotion. Thanks.

Asked by: StephenC
The LG SK8000PUA 4K HDR Smart LED SUPER UHD TV w/ AI ThinQ® - 49" Class (48.5" Diag), Model # 49SK8000PUA like all the other screen sizes in the SK8000PUA 4K HDR Smart LED SUPER UHD TV w/ AI ThinQ® series comes with TruMotion 120, unlike the other screen sizes in this series, it does not have a native 120 Hz refresh rate, it has a native 60 Hz refresh rate. TruMotion is our name for motion interpolation. The "PUA" and "AUA" at the end of the model numbers identify which retailers are carrying the respective models. The TVs all have the same specifications and features regardless of which letters they have at the end of their respective model numbers...^IFV

Can I use it as a MAC monitor using HDMI to DVI adaptors ?
