What people are saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Our first big screen TV It was about time for an upgrade from our 20 year old projection TV! After some research, we selected the 65" LG SK9500PUA. It has all the features we were looking for, at a sale price we could afford. We are very pleased with our purchase. The picture quality is excellent, but, it's apparent that we are going to need a sound bar to make the experience vomplete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect picture!! Picture so clear it looks like the actors are in the same room as you and not on TV.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features, excellent picture, bad apps This was purchased over a month ago. After using it on a regular basis I can say that this is an excellent TV. Picture quality is simply awesome. The only downfall for this TV are the apps. The apps keeps crashing or freezing and the only way to resolve this is turning off the TV (all updates have been installed).

Does the 65SK9500PUA support Aptx low latency Bluetooth feature? If not, which LG TV does?

What PUA means? I'm looking for this TV and I see model # SK9500. and SK9500PUA,WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?? And why PUA IS MORE EXPENSIVE UNIT?

Asked by: Kiko2020
The "PUA" at the end of the model number for the LG SK9500PUA 4K HDR Smart LED SUPER UHD TV w/ AI ThinQ® - 65" Class (64.5" Diag), Model # 65SK9500PUA is for internal purposes and only identifies the retail outlets that sell the TV. The SK9500 and SK9500PUA are one and the same TV. Some retailers do not use the full model number which is 65SK9500PUA. Pricing will vary according to which retailer you purchase the TV from. LG's Suggested Price for the TV is as the name implies, a suggested price that LG recommends that retailers should sell the TV for, but retailers will sell the TV at the price that they want...^IFV

Hello, I just purchased 2 LG UHD 4K 55UK65 TVs. I will be using them in a lobby to play videos off a USB drive. There are multiple videos, but when each starts to play, the name of the file, and the playback controls pops on. Can this be disabled?

Hi Ed, unfortunately, there is no way to disable the pop-up message. ^AC

How many FALD zones will there be in the sk9500 and sk900?

Asked by: WonMoTyme
I just recieved mine today. After running the local dimming zone test off YouTube I can tell you there is only a measly 96. Weak for the price.
Answered by: Farkas
Date published: 2018-06-08

When will it be revealed how many local dimming zones this model will have? I heard that it will only have 96. If so that is a huge disappointment given the price. That may be a deal breaker.

Asked by: Farkas
Hi Farkas. Regrettably, without the model number for the TV that you are inquiring about, we are unable to answer your inquiry. You can contact our Support Center at (800) 243-0000 and provide them with the model number for the TV that you are interested in and a product specialist will be able to assist you with the requested information...^IFV
