Nano Cell Display with Billion Rich Colors

The latest evolution of the LCD panel with the Nano Dot film delivers deep black expressions for rich, natural shadow detail and billion rich colors that are truer to the original image, even at wide viewing angles.

Active HDR analyzes and optimizes HDR10 content scene-by-scene for an even more striking, more breathtaking High Dynamic Range experience. It also supports Dolby Vision as well as the new backward-compatible HLG HDR standard, assuring compatibility with the most HDR content from streaming.

Backlight Failed in 10 Weeks

Submitted by wolfievtec - 4/9/2018

Ive had this TV for about 3 weeks. It took awhile to get it adjusted to my liking but wow this TV looks great. 4K is amazing. Netflix Amazon other apps all look so crisp and clear. The 240 Tru Motion is worth the extra $ over the cheaper LG models. Sports look great Directv has NHL NBA MLB and many more sports in 4K HDR. Buying tip: I bought this at Best Buy who priced matched Crutchfield. I saved $300.

Best 4K TV Ive ever owned

Submitted by The Vaping Gamer - 3/21/2018

I recently bought re6 65 LG SJ8500 mainly for gaming and so far A.C. Origins CoD WW2 and many other games look incredible on my Xbox One X Horizon Zero Dawn Shadow of the Colossus and Uncharted 4/Lost Legacy look stunning on my Ps4 Pro. Ive used the Tv for 4k bluray and Netflix/Amazon/Hulu streaming and its just like being at the theater. The sound is excellent on this Tv as well. I also love the HDR effect picture mode on Netflix I use it because I dont have a 4k subscription to Netflix. The HDR effect mode when active and with the upscaler inside the TV you wont even be able to tell the difference I would highly recommend this TV to everyone especially gamers 15 milliseconds response time is excellent :-

Technical Design Aspects Are Stellar

Submitted by Music6680 - 3/20/2018

This 65 LG TV delivers excellent value and is compatible with other entertainment equipment owned such as my DVD player. The universal remote is indeed universal in its ability to control other equipment. I especially like the bluetooth aspect of the remote control and the voice command feature. The clarity of the sound the vividness of the colors and the ability to clearly see the images even when not looking straight on makes this LG TV a best buy.

Ive had the TV about one month and have had no problems. The picture is awesome and Im waiting to watch a 4K movie to really bring the picture to life. I did purchase a LG sound bar on sale mainly for watching movies. I think you can get by with the speakers in the TV for normal viewing. I hope to write another review in about a year to see if everything is still good.

new 65sj850a model...awsome

Submitted by don in dallas - 2/27/2018

moved the picture to CINEMA for best color and brightness in MY room. Its hard to get use to the white back...you dont see it But with a white wall you can back light using a lamp. There are so many hook-ups in back that this tv can grow with your needs. The sound system is a down fire...to get the best I used a triangle piece of wood placed/secured on the foot to reflect the sound at me...it helps Being HDR10/active and Dolby Vision this TV can move to whatever system goes mainstream. The optic hookup on the back is the best for a sound bar if you ever add one. There is so much to this TV... I will be enjoying it for years

Submitted by ovadua - 2/18/2018

I gave the tv only 4 stars because I know there are more to discover. The presets on this lovey display is great and Im still learning how to use them. The HDR and Dolby Vision is off the charts. Watching the Fast and Furious franchise is wonderful with this LG SJ8500. The colors and brightness the sharpness of every detail leaps right at you. The magic remote is pure magic its the best and easiest most accurate remote to use ever. Get at me in a few more months Im still exploring.

Sharp picture great sound

Submitted by myronnabq - 2/3/2018

Sharp picture with very true to life colors. Although LGs OLED TVs are stated to have better black I cannot imagine it being sharper than this TV. The only 4K I have watched so far is my Roku home screen of an aquarium - it looks like the real thing on this TV. The TV does a great job with my current 1080 content but I am looking forward to watching a 4K streaming broadcast or blue ray. The sound is great and almost emulates surround sound at times. There is a digital optical audio output to connect a separate surround sound system if you have one. The LG content store does not currently February 2018 have a Directv Now streaming app so I use a Roku to watch my streaming content. LG does provide software updates as needed - I have already downloaded one in the 2 weeks I have owned the TV. The 65 inch size is perfect for home viewing not to small not too big. It is just the right size to be completely immersive. The frame around the actual picture only adds about 1/2 on each side so this TV will fit in cramped spaces that may not accommodate other 65 TVs. You can buy lower priced smart TVs - even from LG - that to a good job as well. However if you do want an incredibly sharp picture and great sound - you do get what you pay for with this TV

The set up process was easy with Lots of options to customize. Everything was fine until I followed up on a prompt to install a software update. After the update I experienced several glitches the worse being the tv would lose picture and sound while viewing. I called customer service and was walked through a reset he offered to schedule an appointment with a repair technician if this didnt work. The reset worked and I have been very satisfied with the tv so far. Its a beautiful picture and the sound is much better than my other tvs.

Two issues: 1. WiFi on the TV seems to be spotty and weak. I suspected my internet connection and router initially so upgraded to a 100MBps connection and bought a brand new 802.11ac router with beamforming. The TV sometimes gets only 1-2 MBps while a phone or laptop right next to the TV is getting 100MBps. I have to reset the network connection or power cycle my TV to get it back up again. After power cycling I get about 60MBps which is what I expect. Ive had to do this once every few days to have a decent internet connection on my TV. 2. Sound from HDMI just stops working. This issue started a few days after I got a brand new TV so I exchanged it for a new TV. The new TV had the exact same problem. I called LG tech support and we got it resolved by power cycling the TV. We unplugged the TV then pressed the ON button for 5 seconds then plugged it back in and turned it on. This fixed it but I am not sure if it is a permanent fix. I unplugged all my HDMI devices after that point and am only using the Smart TV internet features Netflix YouTube SlingTV. Sounds like this is a real defect in the TV..

Submitted by deanocalif - 1/10/2018

Maybe my tv is defective. I read great reviews from the buyers. However my 5 year old tv has a better reception than lg 8500. I have tried all kinds of setting from the day i purchased. I wish i had returned it withing the 15 day window. I have the 2 year warranty from best buy. Can my tv be replaced with a lg TV ???

Great picture easy to use my only complaint is not alot of available apps .so you are stuck adding a Fire stick or Roku box. and any time you want to change inputs or ut puts the TV has to come off the wall as they are not visable

LG does not take care of their customers.

Submitted by Andrew Thompson - 12/28/2017

My 2 year old daughter threw an empty 2 liter bottle in the air and hit this screen of this TV that I received on Oct 7th 2017 at a glancing blow. The screen cracked with a star just over the size of a quarter. I was devastated. I just paid $1600 for this TV 2 months ago and could not believe something as light weight of an empty plastic bottle could crack the screen. I am sorry but the screen must have been defective to have light weight item hit it and crack. If it was a WII remote or a match box car I would not say a word but for something this light to glance the screen and break?? I called LG to report the breakage and of course was told that I was on my own but would have a supervisor call me back for a possible exception. That never happened either. If LG was a reputable company they would take care of their customer.

Submitted by Dianas8 - 12/26/2017

I bought this tv to replace an older plasma tv wanted a Smart TV I need to be able to view it from a wide viewing angle. it produces a very clear colorful picture that I can see from the side while working in kitchen or sitting in my chair which is off to side not directly in front Only issue has been the sound when we first got it could not get sound and LG worked with me on it turns our it is a Comcast cable issue they are coming out today to bring a new digital cable
