LG Electronics LG 65SM8500PLA 65-Inch UHD 4K HDR Smart NanoCell LED TV : Great 4k smart TV

I originally bought the hisense h55u7auk 55-inch 4k ultra hd, which i returned within 24 hours because the picture quality was extremely poor. I decided to spend the extra £200 on this lg model and boy i am glad i did. The picture quality straight out of the box is excellent and requires very little adjusting to achieve the optimal settings. Sound is also very good, even without a sound bar. The magic remote is also a nice touch. The voice recognition and mouse like pointer that appear on the screen makes the tv even easier to use. Extremely easy to set up, the tv goes through everything step by step and helps you all the way. Overall excellent tv, i would definitely highly recommend.

Good tv, pointer remote excellent, built in amazon and netflix (icons on the remote). 4k from amazon looks wonderful. Don’t understand the ramblings of people discussing the black levels. On the tv delivered to me, the blacks are fine. The big negative is the fact that the idiot who designed the feet/support system, put the feet at the extremities of the set, requiring you to have a media stand exceeding a meter in width. I have had to purchase a vesa stand for it. Also works well with alexa, which was very easy to setup.

Good quality tv absolutely brutal vi.

Very good, sound not brilliant but remote sound bar did the trick.

Best tv at this price range, its got all of what i was looking for in a 4k tv. Also in game mode it performs as good as the two gaming monitors in the house due to it having the lowest in class amount of input lag once you enable gaming mode and it rivals the expensive oled models in that aspect.

Nothing to dislike, easy to tune in. Quality picture is very good.

Love the product just so diappointed i recieved tis 2 weeks ago and now see its £30 cheaper ,,,apart from being miffed abt pricereduction in 2 weeks its an excellent buy ,.

Would prefer a central stand. Haven’t been able to pair control with set top box.

Buy on Amazon

Amazing tv, fantastic picture, remote easy to use one you get used to it. Love the netflux and amazon ore programmed buttons and easy to locate the apps.

I bought this tv to replace a 2015 sony uhd tv. The tv is fantastic with so many features. Nothing to criticise only praise for a wonderful responsive tv with a brilliant picture.

We cannot fault the picture and our sound bar seems to be redundant. The remote takes some getting used to and i am not sure i have got it beaten yet. Perhaps it is still a little early to tell, but it is a lot better than our sony which started to eat hdmi interfaces.

Brought to replace older tv,picture is a lot clearer,sound is so so,liked the idea of atmos,so will now need a new soundbar to deliver it fully,a decent buy.

Picture quality really good. Replace a panasonic biers tv which was good but this is better. Good colours and uhd is excellent. Built in google assistant and alexa nice additions.

Much better than my old samsung that i thought was a great tv, but this lg is on a different planet. The picture quality is totally amazing, 4k is the way forward, i didn’t know much about 4k, but i now know it’s a must.

Great tv at an amazing discounted pricefive star rating for me.

The connection was easy and once the tv was up and running reasonable instructions were available. The fact smart tvs only have one tuner is a nuisance so we had to connect a set top box.

Fabulous picture and a doddle to set up.

Great quality a very good buy.

Unbelievable quality and looks nice as well. Dolby atmos is great and even better with a sound bar. Can’t believe i only paid £498, absolute bargain.

Absolutely stunning uhd tv from lg. Fantastic display and so easy to set up. Magic remote is sleek and fun to use – inc handy netflix and prime video buttons. I’d recommend a decent sound bar to enjoy quality sound along side the excellent pictures.

I’m very happy with the quality. I bought this for the alexa feature but i don’t actually bother to use that feature. Love the handy netflix and amazon video button on the remote control that is included with the tv. It doesn’t say it is but it is .Good all rounder, very happy.

Use it only for gaming, netflix and amazon only (don’t watch terrestrial tv on it). Good sound and picture quality.

Excellent television set with most of the features you could wish for except there’s no headphone socket. My hearing is not good so i am unable to set the treble tone high enough.

Only works if environment is dark enough. Great kit and simple to install.

Has a few ‘bells and whistles’ on it and overall a great tv. . Just not got the wow factor about it. I think for the price you can get a better picture, which for me, was the main thing. I know that this nano picture technology is supposed to be the future way forward (if you believe the technology blogs that are flying around),but it seemed a little lacking with the punchyness of that picture even with settings altered and i have seen either in store or in friends front rooms better. Sound is fantastic though,even without a sound bar,with quite a few settings to play around with and is super loud. Do i recommend you buying this tv?. . Well yes i would, after all lg do make great tv’s. Just don’t be too disappointed in that picture once you get it out the box and you’ve shelled out all that money.

Same length that tvyou need a 1. Will be ok if you wall hung. The remote center wheel a bit to smallfeels naf.

For the money this is a good value tv good clean picture, simple to set up. However, there are a few cons, the remote screen control is fairly complex to handle particularly if you have cable tv where we still find it easier to resort to the virgin remote to access recorded shows. However, the voice control when it works is very useful, although it does not seem to operate in a joined up seamless way with the cable box- although it does with some apps e. Overall it represents good value and probably we will learn to overcome some of the obstacles which it sets up to deriving instant satisfaction.

Excellent picture and sound remote very simple to use, sometimes does loose the wifi settings and you have to re apply the code which is a little annoying.

Fantastic deal for this product. Amazing picture quality, sound through arc allows for easy connection to av amp. Delivery was careful and considerate. Took time and helped unpackage and checked the tv thoroughly before allowing me to sign for delivery.

The tv has a fine picture and the sound is good. If it were not for one thing i would be delighted. I have been unable to get bbc iplayer to work. When i try i get ‘device not supported’ message. This tv is on the list of supported devices. I have followed all the suggestions of both lg and bbc and had no success. They have all ended up blaming each other, and finally my isp. This is nonsense as i use iplayer on all my other devices without a problem.

Bought to watch sky tv , so. No normal tvset up of tv ok. No issuesset up of alexa quite tricky but got there eventuallyalex can turn tv on and off, so not sure about previous reviews disputing this. Can also adjust volume etcpictur3 , sound spot on. 4k netflix brillianthighly recommend.

Best sound, picture and quality.

We now watch all the hd channels as it is such a great picture, the sound quality is also good. The smart features are easy to use, connecting to the wi-fi is simple and quick. Looking forward to watching the grand tour season 3 in 4k hdr.

Great screen and works reliably. Replaced a samsung as the smart tv apps often failed but no issues with this tv so far. Also tv recording works well (need hard drive}.
